Playable characters include The Barbarian that packs unparalleled strength and an arsenal of weapons, the Sorceress that can shape the elements to her desire, and the Druid that commands the power of the earth and that shapeshifts into a bear and werewolf.
The title will feature randomized dungeons in the dynamic open world of Sanctuary, along with endless demons ripe for the slaughter. True to the series, there will also be deep customization through Skill Points, Runes, Talents, and Legendary Loot.

Ghost Games has teamed up with Electronic Arts to release Need for Speed: Heat on the series’ 25th anniversary. Set in the open world of Palm City, this recreation of Miami pays host to both mountainous areas, along with open fields.

What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:
Sennheiser’s quality of audio is seldom bought into question. Needless to say, when they announced their Sennheiser GSP 370, a wireless gaming headset with up to 100 hours of battery life, we couldn’t help but jump at the chance to review a pair. Are the GSP 370’s worthy of the hefty price tag, or is the Sennheiser name the best this headset has to offer?
Sennheiser GSP 370 Wireless Headset Review
Jumping straight into the meat of it, the audio quality of the Sennheiser GSP 370 is nearly unrivaled in the wireless space. For much of my time reviewing the product, I was running through Obsidian Entertainment’s excellent addition to the RPG space, The Outer Worlds, and it completely changed my experience. Switching from my regular headset, one that’s currently £100 more expensive than the 370s, was a world of difference.
I was hearing parts of the soundtrack I didn’t recognize, and the environmental audio bought the game to life. While The Outer Worlds doesn’t heavily rely on directional audio as it’s not a competitive game, I definitely noticed a better ability to pin point enemy directions and location.
Traditionally I tend to avoid the suction-style ear cups of the 370. Doing what we do here at Gamers Heroes, I’ve often got a headset attached to my head for 15 hours of the day, and that can get uncomfortable – and very sweaty with certain headsets. However, I had zero problems. It was comfortable, lightweight, and it done a great job of limiting ambient noise. Best of all, no ear sweat. That’s not just me, right?
The Sennheiser GSP 370 works on Windows PC, Mac, and the PlayStation 4. The Windows version comes complete with the Sennheiser Gaming Suite, offering complete control of the devices audio and microphone. You’re able to adjust any desired gain or noise gate elements of the microphone, while adjusting the audio to fit any activity or style, including 2.0 and 7.1 channels. The software is not supported on other platforms, but it does not lessen its performance in any way.
One of the more impressive boasts of the Sennheiser GSP 370 is the battery life, boasting up to 100 hours of wireless audio. I tested the device multiple times from a full charge and found it to last around the 85 hour mark, but that was with near constant use at high levels of volume. With a lower volume setting, easily adjusted by a dial on one of the ear cups, the battery can be pushed further. The range of the wireless was equally as impressive, working in every room at home.
If there’s one single aspect of the Sennheiser GSP 370 that was a little underwhelming, it was the quality of the microphone. Headset microphones are traditionally of a lesser quality than their free-standing counterparts and wireless usually further compounds this issue, but that’s not entirely the case with the Sennheiser GSP 370. My current setup is an Audio-Technica AT2020 (a studio quality Cardioid Condenser Microphone), and an ASTRO A40, both rather expensive bits of gear.
A headset setup will always struggle to compete with the AT2020, but when compared with the Astro A40’s, the difference is huge. The Astro’s microphone feels cheaper, …
Originally shown during Paris Games Week, Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot that focuses on Vegito.
