AFK Today 7/7/2023


Welcome to this week’s AFK Today! We have a new gameplay trailer for Helldivers 2, an update for Ashes of Creation, and the 1.04 patch for Diablo 4! Lots of game updates this week and we also have some sweet deals for yall on Steam! What games are you playing this weekend?



Helldivers 2 Gameplay Trailer

The original Helldivers game was a classic with its stellar gameplay loop that kept a loyal player base for many years. With the release of a cinematic trailer last month, everyone was excited to see how the game would expand as a 3 dimensional co-op shooter. After the gameplay trailer dropped yesterday, which you can view here, my expectations have gone skyward seeing many returning features such as the armor and drop systems with a glorious visual and mechanical update. It looks like this game will be a crazy fun addition to Playstation and PC game libraries and you should definitely be on the lookout for when the game fully releases this year.


Ashes of Creation Freehold Update

MMOs have been a staple genre in the community for a long time, with many competitors trying to make a place for themselves in the good graces of the playerbase. With so many skeptical fans seeking out the new World of Warcraft killer game, any new and upcoming MMOs have a tough time getting approval for their early alpha updates. Ashes of Creation has been on the competitor radar with the likes of Lost Ark and New World, and has been getting many updates for us to track its progress before full release. The Freehold preview update just recently dropped with many content creators such as Asmongold and Narc having a very positive take on it. Check out the update for yourself here and see if Ashes is heading in the right direction to be a mega-hit or if it will falter like so many MMOs before it. Personally, it might be the first MMO I actually commit to playing given the connection the developers have with the community that we haven’t seen in a long time.


Diablo 4 Patch 1.04

With the release of Season 1 coming July 20th, Diablos developers sent out patch 1.04 that focuses mainly on bugs and gameplay issues. Patch 1.04 is available across all platforms and fixes several errors that players have experienced in quests, dungeons and UI. Additionally, Helltide chests will now drop unique items along with various other benefits. You can check out the full patch notes here.
