Call of Duty: WW2’s newest patch version 1.18 adds a division called the Cavalry, basic training, and other improvements to the first-person shooter.

Just Cause has always been a potent sandbox — a power tool in its own right — rife with possibility for players to wreak untold havoc and destruction. But Just Cause 4 doesn’t just offer more ways to wreck shop. Instead, developer Avalanche Studios rewired the whole damn thing. And by that I mean they threw…
