The second season of Halo Infinite is about to begin. It lasts for three months and is therefore shorter than the first season. Lone Wolves introduces two new maps, including the first Big Team Battle map, Breaker. The other map, Catalyst, is much smaller and serves as a plaza map. In addition to an all-new battle pass, Halo Infinite Season 2 also adds three new game modes: Last Spartan Standing is the “Free-for-All Elimination Mode”, King of the Hill is about who can hold a certain area for the longest and finally there’s Land Grab. This mode is a combination of King of the Hill and another classic mode, Lands. Players compete for control of five areas on the map, which once captured cannot be captured by the opposing team.

Sifu has been running on PlayStation consoles and PC for several months now, but the physical version hasn’t been available yet. Sifu: Vengeance Edition is the name of this new version, which comes with some extras as well as a tweak. It includes a hard book, three printed cards, a 48-page book The Art of Sifu, and a copy of the Sifu digital soundtrack. Other than that, Sifu: Vengeance Edition is the same one that was brought to us in February: a hard-hitting game in which the player ages when they die, trying to reach the end of the level before it’s too late. This requires a very precise kung fu action that will push even the most experienced fighting gamer to the limit.
