Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown expansion announced, releasing June 3
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
InXile Entertainment today announced the first expansion heading to its latest RPG Wasteland 3. Titled The Battle of Steeltown, the DLC will send the Rangers to investigate the factory complex that manufactures all of the technology seen in Colorado, which has suddenly dried up its exports. See the teaser trailer above.
Visiting this new location - in solo or co-op -, players will find new quests that decide Steeltown's fate, scaled gear, and fresh tactical combat elements, which include stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks, and non-lethal weapons.
The new additions will also carry over to the base game as well. Here is the expansion's feature list provided by InXile:
The Xbox Game Studios developer has been delivering bug fixes and stability updates to Wasteland 3 since its launch last year, but this will be the first story-driven content to arrive. Moreover, fans of the series should know that the announcement's wording suggests more expansions are planned for the future.
Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown expansion is releasing across Steam, GOG, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 (available for next-gen consoles via backward compatibility) on June 3 with a $13.99 price tag. Xbox Game Pass subscribers - who already have access to the base game - will find a 10% discount waiting for them when purchasing the expansion as well.

Microsoft Edge 90 is out with Kids Mode and more
by Rich Woods
Right on schedule, Microsoft is releasing Edge 90 today. The big hero feature of this version is Kids Mode, something that was first introduced in the lower channels back in February. The idea, as you can probably guess, is to provide a safer browsing experience for children.
There are two separate settings for Kids Mode based on your child's age, so you can set it for 5-8 or 9-11. All you have to do if click on the profile picker in the top-right and choose "Browse in Kids Mode". In order to get back, you'll need to authenticate your account so kids can't do it themselves.
First of all, tracking prevention is set to the maximum level in Kids Mode, no matter which age group you choose. There's also a white-list of about 70 sites, although as Microsoft said you'd be able to do from the beginning, you can customize that list. You also get Bing SafeSearch to make sure that adult content is blocked in search results.
All of that stuff is for both age groups, but if you choose 9-12, there are some perks. For example, there's a news feed on the New Tab Page with content from MSN for Kids. These can be about science, fun facts, animals, and more. There are also browser themes that are based on Disney titles like Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Cars, Toy Story, and Coco.
Along with Kids Mode, there are a few other minor new features, such as a better history search. The whole idea is to make search terms a bit more like natural language. So, instead of trying to remember the name of that book that caught your eye while you were shopping yesterday, you'll be able to search for something like, "book from yesterday".
Password Monitor is now generally available. It actually started rolling out back in January, but it should be available for everyone now. It lets you know if any of your passwords have been found on the dark web.
To manually update your Edge browser, you can go to Settings -> About Microsoft Edge. If you don't do that, the browser will be updated in the background at some point today.

Acer announces new ENDURO Urban laptop and tablet
by Rich Woods
ENDURO Urban T1 Today, Acer is announcing an extension of its ENDURO brand, which is for rugged devices, called ENDURO Urban. It's made for "work and play while on or off the road", and it includes things like IP53 and MIL-STD-810H certifications. With the announcement comes two new devices, the ENDURO Urban T1 and the ENDURO Urban N3.
First up is the T1, which is a 10-inch Android tablet that comes with Android 10 Go edition, a quad-core processor, and 1920x1200 resolution. It weighs in at 595g or 1.31 pounds, and it's 9.8mm thin, impressive specs for something that's designed to be more rugged than the average tablet. Indeed, it's made from shock-absorbant materials and has reinforced bumpers, along with covers for the ports to keep them waterproof.
ENDURO Urban N3 Next up is the ENDURO Urban N3, which is a 14-inch laptop that follows that same kind of design strategy with a rugged design and reinforced bumpers while still not turning it into a big and bulky machine. It's 1.85kg (4.08lbs) and 21.95mm thick, and it includes up to an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce MX330 graphics. You can also have it configured with up to a 1TB SSD and 32GB DDR4 memory.
You can find the ENDURO Urban T1 here and the ENDURO Urban N3 here. The N3 starts at $799, but the T1 doesn't seem to be for sale just yet.
Sea of Thieves Season Two lands with Trade Routes, buyable resources, and more
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
Rare's 20 million players strong pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves just kicked off the second season of its new content drive, and like the previous one, the latest installment comes with a swath of new features, battle pass unlocks, cosmetic rewards, quality of life improvements, and more.
Starting off with Season Two's special event, players can now find Forts of Fortune waiting for them in the Sea of Thieves, marked by a scarred Skull Cloud in the sky. These are a new kind of fort with even more challenging enemies than usual, and as rewards, pirates can claim some of the highest tier loot that is offered in the game.
Another piece of exciting content in the update is Trade Routes. Merchant Alliance Emissary players can now purchase Commodity Crates from the trading company to deliver them to another Outpost across the seas. The supply and demand of commodities are different across the world, so players can calculate their profits before undertaking these.
Also, players looking to set sail faster without having to stock up on resources manually can now purchase them directly from Outposts. Cannonballs, fruits, and wood crates are now available for Gold. However, there is a restriction to stop abuse, as pirates can only purchase one of each crate every three in-game days (one in-game day equals 24 real-world minutes.)
The Sea of Thieves free battle pass has been refreshed with 100 more items to unlock via progression too, which include themed items, Gold, premium Ancient Coins, and even the new Barrel Disguise Emote. As for the premium track, the Plunder Pass offers 11 additional items from the Pirate Emporium, including the snazzy sets seen below.
Head to the Season Two landing page set up by Rare to get a rundown of all the new features, while the patch notes for this update can be seen here. The servers are now back up and running after maintenance, so Sea of Thieves players on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass subscribers can now jump back in to experience the new content.
