Horizon Forbidden West launches today on PS5 and PS4, thank you to PlayStation for providing me a game key for review, The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask is coming to Nintendo Switch on 25 Feb 2022, and new Lost Ark servers have launched to help cope with player demand.

Majora's Mask on Switch Release

Nintendo has recently made an exciting announcement for Zelda fans - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is coming to the Nintendo Switch! Scheduled for release on February 25, 2022, players with the Expansion Pass subscription will have the opportunity to download and play this classic game on their Switch consoles.

For those who haven't had the chance to delve into the world of Majora's Mask, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the unique and captivating adventure. As a player myself, I have been eagerly waiting to jump into both Majora's Mask and its predecessor, Ocarina of Time. However, I want to ensure that I have the best gaming experience possible, so I will be patiently waiting for any potential updates or fixes before diving in.

Lost Ark New Servers

In other gaming news, Amazon Games has addressed the overwhelming demand for their popular MMO, Lost Ark, by announcing the launch of a new server region specifically for European players - Lost Ark Europe West. With the current servers unable to handle the influx of players, Amazon Games has taken this step to alleviate the server queues and provide a smoother experience for European players.

The introduction of eight new servers in the Europe West region is expected to cater to the growing player base and reduce the wait times. If you're an avid fan of Lost Ark or have been patiently waiting to try it out, the addition of a new server should definitely be a tempting option, allowing you to enjoy the game without the frustration of long queue times.

Horizon Forbidden West Released

Today marks the highly anticipated release of Horizon Forbidden West, the sequel to the critically acclaimed game Horizon Zero Dawn. As a fortunate recipient of an early game code from PlayStation, I have had the privilege of experiencing this game ahead of its official launch. I can confidently say that Horizon Forbidden West is a visual masterpiece, especially when played on the next-gen PlayStation 5. Players on the previous generation console, the PlayStation 4, will also be pleased to know that the game runs incredibly well on that platform too.

For those who haven't played the original Horizon Zero Dawn, I would highly recommend doing so before diving into Horizon Forbidden West. The first game sets the foundation for the story and introduces the fascinating post-apocalyptic world inhabited by robotic creatures. However, if you are unable to play the first game, rest assured that Horizon Forbidden West can still be enjoyed as a standalone experience.

To add an extra level of challenge, I personally ramped up the difficulty setting to Very Hard. While it is indeed a challenging experience, it is by no means impossible to overcome. Should you be seeking an additional challenge or prefer a more tailored experience, the game offers various customization options, allowing you to adjust the settings to your liking.

In conclusion, gaming enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming months. The Nintendo Switch will soon welcome The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, providing an opportunity for fans to relish in this classic adventure. Meanwhile, Lost Ark's new server region, Europe West, aims to tackle the overwhelming demand and offer a smoother gameplay experience. Lastly, Horizon Forbidden West has finally been released and is receiving praise for its stunning visuals and engaging gameplay. Whether you're a fan of Legend of Zelda, Lost Ark, or Horizon Zero Dawn, there's plenty to be excited about in the gaming world. So gear up, grab your controllers, and prepare for some unforgettable gaming experiences!
