Starting on December the 1st, just as you’re opening the first door on your advent calendar, ace RTS Million Lords will be getting leagues. Players will be grouped into specific leagues depending on their skills, and there will be Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels. The aim in each season will be to reach the top, with rewards available depending on your level.
Somebody wants to you transfer your Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Home. You can tell because you’ll receive a Mythical Pokemon Meimetal for doing so. It would be worth doing without that added incentive – taking a Pokemon that you found in the park and making it materialize in your Sword and Shield game on Switch is just plain cool.
Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead is barely out of the news these days. Following last week’s extended YouTube gameplay video, we’ve now got a release date – and it’s soon. Next week, in fact. Headup Games’s latest mashup, which sees you building structures to escape from zombies – or kill them – will be out on the 19th.

Rules of Survival, the popular mobile battle royale from NetEase, is celebrating its third birthday. The inevitable anniversary event will run for three weeks, giving you stuff like a 240 Diamond check-in bonus, and a limited-time Cruise Airship, Treasure Hunt, and Mystery Jigsaw. ROSversary will be doled out to everybody who takes part.
Bubba Watson is a golfer, and he’s agreed to collaborate with Warner Bros. Games and Playdemic on some new Golf Clash content.
