Steam Shows June Release For Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma On PC

We've known Zero Time Dilemma was headed to PC for some time, but it wasn't until today that we learned when.

According to the game's Steam page, the game will be available June 29, the day after it release for Vita and 3DS. Previously, Spike Chunsoft said the PC version would be available at an unspecified date after the release of the handheld versions.

For more on on Zero Time Dilemma, head here.

Our Take
There is a chance this date could still change, especially considering Spike Chunsoft said the PC version would be later than the handhelds. Technically, yes this is later, but we expected a few weeks, not a day. It's good news for those wanting to play the game on PC. Hopefully the date sticks.

Overwatch Fanart Shows What Our Favorite Heroes Are Up To Off Duty

Overwatch has been taking the gaming world by storm, with over 7 million players since its release under two weeks ago. We've already told you our favorite characters, and while we love playing as them, we wonder: what are they up to when they're not saving the world?

Artist MonoriRogue on DeviantArt has the answer to that question. With their collection of artworks titled the Casual series, MonoriRogue gives a glimpse at how many of the female heroes (along with Junkrat gender-swapped as a girl) of Overwatch live their day-to-day life outside of bustin' bad guys.

Pharah

Justice rides on a motorcycle.

Mercy

Mercy may be a healer, but she needs to recharge sometimes, too.

Tracer

Tracer takes a breather from zooming around and listens to some tunes. 

Zarya

During Zarya's time off, she hits the gym to prepare for the next fight.

D.Va 

D.Va takes some time to chill outside of her enormous mech. Maybe she plays some video games?

Junkrat

The unpredictable, explosive-bearing Junkrat is gender-swapped here as a female. 

Mei

Finally, we have Mei, who is hopefully warming up after blasting enemies with her endothermic gun that freezes them in place.

Overwatch released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24. You can check out our review here, as well as our Test Chamber

What do you think the other Overwatch characters get up to on their days off? Let us know in the comments!

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Shows Off Nightmarish Combat

The recently re-titled Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will attract fans of the Dark Souls series with its unique combat mechanics. The game hits PlayStation 4 and PC later this year.

From developer Ninja Theory, this action game puts players in control of Senua, a Celtic warrior who suffers greatly at the ends of a Viking invasion. The game tackles themes of mental illness and nightmares as the protagonist travels through hellish landscapes to find her sanity again. The latest developer diary highlights Hellblade's gameplay as well as how players' and enemies' health will be displayed. Check it out below.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The developers reveal quite a bit in this lengthy clip, including a lot about how the action will work. It was important for Senua to feel vulnerable and not like a superhero when facing down demons and warriors. There will be no on-screen display, and instead damage will be represented by cuts and wounds on the in-game characters. As Senua nears death, the screen will become saturated and splashed with blood.

From the motion capture work to the detailed models, it is clear that a lot of thought has been put into making this game feel realistic. The combat animations and encounters fit with the world that Ninja Theory has labored to create, and we can't wait to see more of Hellblade later this year.
