Almost 4 years ago, the wonderful Titanfall 2 graced our screens, but it didn’t exactly rack up all the success it was hoping for. Now, with the release of several of EA’s titles on Valve’s digital storefront, Steam, Titanfall 2 has found new success as it is currently the number 1 top seller on Steam, and surprisingly has more players than any other Battlefield game combined.

Following on from the recent, living space ships update, No Mans Sky has just released another free update to the game: introducing the brand new Exo Mech suit, the Minotaur, that lets you traverse hazardous environments with ease. Along with the new Exo Mech are several additional features and Quality of life improvements like graphical fixes and the ability to build your base beyond its complexity limit.
