Our weekly PC game releases feature now goes by a new name, moving forward: Content Drop. With a slew of games and expansions coming out every week, you might as well consider these as content drops for the hobby we all enjoy. This week’s releases, er, content drops, are Night Call, Warlocks 2, Etherborn, and FIA European Truck Racing Championship.

A serial killer is on the loose. You were an intended victim, left for dead one night in the streets of Paris. After surviving an attempt on your life, you go back to doing what you do best — driving a cab and getting people to talk. That’s the experience that Night Call aims to provide, a narrative-driven game inspired with a touch of neo-noir design.
As a cab driver working the night shift, you’ll meet dozens of passengers. Some are talkative and others keep mum. You’ll have to choose your responses carefully in order to get some of them to open up. Who knows, some of them might eventually give clues that’d lead you to discover the real killer.

In Etherborn, your character may be humanoid in form, you are but a voiceless entity in a world that defies logic. That’s all because of gravity.
Every level is designed with your relative position in mind, and you experience gravity perpendicular to the surface that you’re on. Moving around each level would mean the levels themselves twisting and shifting given your relative position. This offers new tricks and trials as you solve each puzzle.
