Yesterday, GOG, CD Projekt Red’s digital storefront, posted a tweet that included a hashtag that has been circulating to advocate for trans rights.

Overwatch’s Symmetra mains haven’t had an easy go of it. Any time they play their favourite character, they run the risk of getting harassed or reported.

At San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, members of the Sony Santa Monica studio teased a clue for what they said was God of War’s last secret. Since then, players have been racing to try and find it.
