AFK Today 6/23/2023


What is up gamers!? This week on AFK Today, we have game updates for Starship Troopers: Extermination, Sons of the Forest, and Valheim. If you play any of these games, you’re in for a treat. What games will you be playing this weekend?



Starship Troopers: Extermination Gets First Major Update

Service guarantees citizenship! As a fan of the Starship Troopers universe since I was little, I was ecstatic when Extermination popped up on my radar out of nowhere as an objective horde-shooter team coop. I am going to be keeping an eye on all the updates that come out following the release of their roadmap just because of how cool the concept of the game is. This first pre-alpha patch introduces a huge variety to each mission in the form of arachnid and scenario mutators. Arachnid mutators will do things like boost the threat level to maximum right away, or will have patrols of bugs be more frequent/aggressive. Scenario mutators can introduce environmental changes like sandstorms or low gravity. Would you like to know more? Click here to see some of the other new additions and definitely check out this game for your wishlist.


Sons of the Forest New Boss Update

Currently on its 7th update in early access, Sons of the Forest has been releasing change after change since launch. This newest patch indicates there will be a whole new boss monster available while also expanding on some of the stone structures the players can build. Trying to avoid any major spoilers for myself due to the blind playthrough we are running on the youtube channel, please check out the Sons of the Forest Channel’s video on updates 6 and 7 here. Let us know what you think of all the recent updates, are they adding enough content to keep you engaged?


Valheim Creative Mode Update

Early this week, Valheim released their latest update to the public test server bringing some long awaited changes. Players will now have different game modes to choose from, introducing several new world modifiers, creative mode and much more. What's even more exciting in this update is the new quest dealer NPC. Not only will this change the entirety of the game but it will give players a bit more meaning and direction while playing. To find out more on the update in Valheim, click here.
