Rebel Galaxy is Free on Epic Games Store from Today Until August 19
Released in 2015 by Double Damage Games, Rebel Galaxy is a Western-styled trading and combat simulation game in space. In the studio’s inaugural title, you will command a powerful star cruiser and explore a massive, randomly generated galaxy full of mystery and danger.
Rebel Galaxy is an action-packed, swashbuckling space opera, which is great for fans of movies and TV series such as Star Wars, Star Trek and Firefly. As you venture across the galaxy, you will battle pirates, explore anomalies, befriend aliens, scavenge battle wreckage, mine asteroids and discover artefacts.
For gamers who love to role-play, you can choose your path as a roguish do-gooder, crafty space-trader or power-hungry privateer - or maybe a little of each! Furthermore, you can buy larger and more powerful ships with your hard-earned credits, and outfit them with a variety of wicked weapons and defences.

Get Your Fill of Bethesda Games for Cheap During the QuakeCon Sale on Steam
QuakeCon is just around the corner and much like last year, due to health and safety concerns, it will be a virtual event that will be held from August 19 to August 21. So in anticipation of the event, Bethesda has launched a QuakeCon Sales that will last up to August 25 with discounts of up to 85% off for select titles.
This is really a good time for you to pick up games you may not have played or would like to just add to your Steam library.

There is even a great bundle that includes Prey and Dishonored 2 that comes at a 78% discount.
Meet Your Ideal Duelmate in Boyfriend Dungeon
In Boyfriend Dungeon, you set off on an adventure into a dungeon, where you have to fend off dangerous monsters and take your weapons on romantic dates. Woo your weapons in this flirty, playful, and welcoming world filled with mastery in the procedurally generated dungeon. To level up your weapons, you will have to take them out on dates and uncover their stories.
You can date up to seven weapons, ranging from dancing swords to heart-piercing daggers. Each weapon type also feels and plays differently, making it ideal for various combat styles. You can either hit hard and dodge quickly with the dagger, or take on crowds head-on with the Lasersaber.
Boyfriend Dungeon is now available for purchase on Steam and the Epic Games Store with a 10% off launch discount and also the Microsoft Store. It is also available for free for gamers with the Xbox Game Pass.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Latest Major Expansion, The Siege of Paris is Out Now
After venturing to Ireland in The Wrath of the Druids, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s protagonist, Eivor embarks on a new adventure in Francia. In the new expansion, The Siege of Paris, Ubisoft promises players gripping questlines across the Frankish countryside towards one of the most infamous battles in Viking History.
You will gain access to the expansion after completing one of the two first narrative arcs available in England (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire), which unlocks just after you arrive from Norway. When in Ravensthorpe, Eivor will stumble upon visitors from Francia offering suspiciously generous presents and will then find their way to Francia. The suggested power level for Francia is 200, but there is no mandatory power level to play The Siege of Paris.
In this new expansion, you get your hand on new weapons, abilities, gear and skills to take on the various new enemy types. The Siege of Paris will also mark the return of Infiltration Missions, directly inherited from long-time, fan-favourite Black Box Missions. In these missions, you will have the liberty to choose the best way to eliminate their designated target. The Siege of Paris will be available for all Season Pass owners or as a separate purchase by all owners of the main game.
Godfall Receives Major New Update Alongside New Expansion
The hack-and-slash looter, Godfall has just received a major new update and a new expansion that adds a new Fire realm, game mode and nearly 100 new cosmetics and loot items. Godfall is currently available for purchase exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
Godfall is set in Aperion, a land on the precipice of ruin. You play as Orin, the last of the Valorian knights, a god-like sect of warriors able to equip Valorplates, legendary armour sets that transform wielders into unstoppable masters of melee combat. After being betrayed by your brother, Macros, you set out to exact revenge on him as he awaits you at the top of the Skybreaker Monolith.
In the Lightbringer Update, which is free for all Godfall players, you are tasked to release the Seventh Sanctum's light. To do so, you will need to build up strength to face the all-consuming darkness by finding up to three Tears. After completing each Tear, you will be offered the opportunity to accept a curse. The more curses selected, the greater the reward after facing the final challenge. The end phase of the mode will have players fighting unprecedented combinations of enemies.
Other than the new game, the Lightbringer update also introduces endgame matchmaking beta, where you can and two friends can take on the toughest endgame challenges in the Ascended Tower of Trials and Lightbringer mode. The update also adds over 40 new loot items including a new tier of Cursed items that grant players a massive boon, when they successfully lift the Curse and unlock the item’s full potential.
The Fire & Darkness expansion unlocks the Fire realm that is brimming with new threats to extinguish and powerful loot to claim. Players who purchased the Deluxe or Ascended editions will receive immediate access to this expansion. The expansion adds in new story missions and cutscenes, five new bosses and more than 10 new enemy types, Fire Realm content for Dreamstones, Tower of Trails and the new Lightbringer endgame modes. Last but not least, there are more than 20 new Valorplate skins for you to claim to make your warrior stand out.
