Fans know Steve Rogers as THE Captain America and THE man holding the Captain America shield, but in the MCU at the end of Avengers: Endgame Steve offered his shield to a successor – his longtime ally and close friend Sam Wilson, the Falcon.

Diary This diary first appeared in PC Gamer magazine issue 354 in February 2021. We do one every month, taking on new challenges and approaching our favourite games from entirely new angles—and letting you know how we got on. Haven't read Part One yet? Hit that link! The locals in Waidtal call the monstrous spiders that live in their woods 'webknechts'. The things are horrors the size of a large dog.

It's a quick tracking job from there, across the trade road and into a stretch of woods where the branches are thick with webbing. We march in. It's an ambush. A wave of spiders comes skittering in from the trees. They come from every direction, so we have to fragment our usual battle line to hold gaps in the trees.

We do one every month, taking on new challenges and approaching our favourite games from entirely new angles – and letting you know how we got on. The Darklands. A war-scarred waste where everything preys upon the people: orcs, goblins, bandits, corpse-eaters, barbarians, giants, great beasts from direwolf to lindwurm, hell, even the dead come back for us. But the worst monster? The predator that kills more of the peasants than any other? It's a vast parasite, a swollen tick growing fatter off the backsweat of the common man: the nobility. They raised us up for one of their wars, their endless wars, and they said it was to protect our town. Thirty of us volunteered, but they fed us into the maw of battle and only twelve came out alive. The worst part? There were just as many scared, unhappy peasants on the other side. The only people who wanted to be there killing each other were the … [Read more...] about Leading a peasant revolt in Battle Brothers: Part 1
