Many people will be hearing these words for the first time, but a brand new game is releasing day and date via PlayStation Now, the service that some think will eventually turn into Sony’s very own attempt at an Xbox Game Pass competitor. It’s not an exclusive title, either, and it’s a Devolver Digital published title. ‘Shadow Warrior 3’ will be added to the service on release day, which is March 1st.
Almost 18 months ago, it seemed that development on ‘Terraria’ was coming to a conclusion. There was the ‘Journey’s End’ update, which was the fourth major expansion which hit in May 2020 which was designed to bring the game to a place where it was considered “complete”. However, then ‘Journey’s Actual End’ was released on October 13th, 2020, and that was it: properly finished this time.

Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, the makers of the hugely popular ‘Grand Theft Auto’ series, has revealed some facts and figures about its titles in the financial reports for the quarter ending in December 2021, and some of the numbers are staggering, with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ reaching a billion in retail sales faster than any entertainment release in history.
BioWare is a very strange developer, because while its more recent games haven’t exactly been met with critical acclaim, the historic titles such as ‘Mass Effect’, ‘Baldur’s Gate’, ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’, and ‘Dragon Age’, are beloved by fans everywhere.
