It’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, so you’re probably going to encounter a lot of green signs for Guinness and other libations dyed the color of shamrocks. Even McDonald’s has a Shamrock Shake. This stuff can’t be good for your insides. Festive though it might be, it’s probably a better idea to invite friends to your house for a good ole Irish gaming day. That way you don’t have to attempt to navigate all those puddles of green… stuff as you make your way through the bars in town. As you drink inside, with plenty of normal-colored snack food, you can chat about all the Gamegrrl news for the week ending March 16, 2019.

We’re getting a new chapter in No Man’s Sky
, which is called No Man’s Sky: Beyond
. It’s coming in summer of this year. According to the website, “No Man’s Sky
includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognizable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky
to be an MMO - it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.” You can read the entire thing here

Finally, we have a new trailer for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
. The trailer is called, “What is The Division 2?
” and is almost six minutes long.
Here is all the info for you: “Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the population. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defense. Since then, Division agents have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains.
“For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever. Washington, D.C. – the most heavily protected city on earth – is at risk, leaving the entire nation on the brink of collapse. If Washington, D.C., is lost, then the nation falls. As a Division agent who has been in the field for seven months, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse."
