AFK Today 8/18/2023


What is up gamers? This week we got updates for Hearthstone, Darkest Dungeon 2, and an open beta for Skull & Bones. We’ve been playing a crap ton of Baldur’s Gate 3 and Remnant 2! What games will you be playing this weekend? Happy Friday and enjoy the last bits of summer gaming.



Hearthstone Wild-Exclusive Expansion: Caverns of Time

The hit online card game Hearthstone will be releasing a new expansion that will be exclusive to the wild format called Caverns of Time. This set will introduce cards that interact with the older expansions of wild, with the re-introduction of specific mechanics that were never reprinted, such as C’thun’s buffing or the no duplicate conditional cards. Not only will this 140+ card be released August 22nd, many buffs/alterations will also be coming to wild set cards to better reflect the current power level of modern Hearthstone. Check out more about all the updates on their official website here.


Darkest Dungeon 2 Chirurgeon's Table Update

The Collector mini-boss returns to Darkest Dungeon 2 in this free update called Chirurgeon’s Table. This is the first major content we have received since the 1.0 launch, including a new location, the Collector and Gaunt Chirurgeon minibosses, six new enemy champions, and an overhaul to the torch system. Controller support has also been added (just what I had been waiting for) as well as Steam Deck support. Many other game changes have been included, which you can see for yourself on their store page here. It is good to see this game increasing its content post-launch.


Skull & Bones Closed Betas Now Open

After years of delays it is now time to sail into the high seas and take what's rightfully ours. Although this is a closed invitational only beta, players who are signed up and granted access will be able to play Aug 24th to Aug 28th. If you are selected to participate in the closed beta, you should see an Ubisoft email with all the details and PC specs. All participants who have received an invitation will be able to invite up to 2 of their friends to join the journey. Hopefully, the beta is one to impress its fans and give us something worthwhile. You can find out all the details here.
