Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is a refreshed version of one of the greatest RPGs ever. An epic story based on the theme of love, set in a massive new world, Final Fantasy VIII features nearly an hour of cinemas seamlessly integrated into gameplay. The new junction system allows characters to be customized with powerful magic spells drawn from enemies for more complex RPG interaction. A member of an elite military team, Squall is forced into a conflict beyond imagination. To survive, he must contend with a desperate rival, a powerful sorceress, and his own mysterious dreams.
The first major expansion for the hit game monster hunting game, Monster Hunter World: Iceborn features new quest ranks, locales, monsters, moves and gear in addition to a full narrative experience that continues on from the ending of Monster Hunter: World.
