Perfect World Entertainment has announced that Neverwinter: Tomb of Annihilation will be coming first to PC on July 25, ahead of release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at a later date.

The expansion sees death arriving in Faerûn via a mysterious curse, leading Neverwinter’s Harpers to head out on a large expedition to the remote land of Chult, where they will get to explore a new jungle zone, battle the undead, Yuanti, and dinosaurs, and track down the source of the death curse that has afflicted Faerûn.

The 12th Neverwinter expansion includes new content such as a Tomb of Annihilation campaign, end-game dungeon, monster hunts with Volo, a jungle adventure zone infested with dinosaurs, and the new social hub, Port Nyanzaru.

Tech Radar reports that Microsoft has issued an apology today for accidentally releasing Windows 10 test builds before they were ready. The builds included several for mobile, and just one, numbered 16212, for PC and mobile.

What made the matter even worse was that the early builds were pushed out not just to Windows Insiders, but also to general Windows 10 users who were not part of the testing program and who had already installed the Creators Update.

Dona Sarker, software engineer at Windows and Devices Group, said “If you are not a Windows Insider, your device may have seen one of these builds offered. However, these builds will not install on devices that are not joined to the Windows Insider Program (a.k.a. ‘retail’).”

Thankfully, the unfinished PC builds are not especially damaging to the computers of anyone that might unwittingly try to install them, so nothing major to worry about there. The mobile builds are another matter,...

The official Microsoft Windows blog has today announced that it has started rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update for Surface Hub.

Ryan Gavin, general manager at Microsoft Devices Marketing, says that in the 14 months since Surface Hub started shipping, there has been an “astounding” response from businesses around the world to the device, with more than half of the Fortune 100 companies buying Surface Hubs “to improve how their teams inspire and collaborate - breaking down barriers and creating real business values.”

Gavin says that the Microsoft Whiteboard will be arriving on the Surface Hub in mid-June via an app update, with the intention of rolling it out to other Windows 10 devices such as Surface Studio and Surface Pro later in the year.

With the new update, Gavin says that Surface Hub is now “more personal,” gaining the ability for users to sign in to their Office 365 account from the welcome screen or start menu,...

Bethesda Softworks has announced that Fallout 4 is free to play this weekend on Steam for PC and for all Xbox Live Gold members, running through until 1 p.m. PT on Sunday, May 28.

Players will have access to Mod support during the freeplay period, but not to any of the premium downloadable content. This ties in well with Bethesda’s monthly pick of some of its favourite Fallout 4 mods, which it has just posted, writes The Express. One new Fallout 4 Mod that has attracted a lot of attention this week is Pilgrim-Dread the Commonwealth, which PC Gamer says “turns Fallout 4 into a dread-soaked horror experience.”

And assuming that you like what you see of Fallout 4 during the free trial, you’ll then be able to buy it at 67% off, but you’ll have to make your mind up quickly as that offer only lasts until 10 a.m. PT on May 29.

If you’re someone who hasn’t yet got around to playing Overwatch, now would be a really great time to see what all the fuss is about and get hooked like the other 30 million of us, as for this weekend only the game is free to play, right through until 8:59 CEST on May 29. PC Gamer writes that those playing the game for free during this trial period will have access to all the heroes available in the game, as well as all maps, in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl. Should you then decide you want to buy the game, all your progress during the trial will be carried over.

During the trial period you’ll also get to participate in the special Anniversary Event celebrating the fact that the game was released a year ago. The Anniversary Event runs until June 12, and includes new maps and character skins, as well as loot boxes with anniversary goodies, including 11 Legendary skins.

However, PC...

Microsoft has today announced that it is changing the name of its Beam streaming platform to Mixer.

“We chose Mixer as our new name because it represents what we love most about the service…how it brings people together,” said Matt Salsamendi, co-founder and engineering lead for Mixer at Microsoft.

Aside from the name change, the Microsoft Blog says that the platform has undergone a “big evolution,” including the introduction of some new features that streamers and viewers have been asking for.

Writing on Xbox Wire, Salsamendi said that Mixer “brings people together through the core experience and ‘special sauce’ that our fans already know and love: the ability to not just watch streams, but to also interact with streamers and play together in near real-time. In other words, Mixer is livestreaming that’s actually LIVE, compared to the 10-20-second latency you typically get on other platforms.”

Salsamendi adds that Microsoft wants...
