NetEase's annual Connects event has just wrapped up and we've got the low down on everything that was announced. There were several updates for existing games alongside some announcements for some intriguing new titles. Aside from this article, we've also covered some of the newly announced game sin articles of their own:
Dead by Daylight Mobile
We received some news about news for the popular asymmetrical horror title. Dead By Daylight mobile is going to receive an update in Western regions soon, with a new test also on its way.
The survival game will get even bigger this summer with an expansion called Toward the Unknown. It will introduce new gameplay modes, and outfits while promising to deliver tougher combat encounters. You can check out a teaser trailer below.
Infinite Lagrange is set to receive an update this summer that adds a Legacy concept to the sci-fi MMO. This means that you can hunt for legacy items and then use them to improve and develop your forces.
NetEase's survival looter shooter's latest update introduces a new mechanic focused around escaping. Alongside being the last person standing, you can now succeed by being airlifted out of the map with as much loot as you can carry. Elsewhere, the new trade feature allows you to buy and sell supplies alongside creating unique weapons using high-grade equipment.
The popular survival horror title announced yet another collaboration. This time it is with Japanese steampunk artist Mitsuji Kamata, meaning you can expect new costume designs using that theme.

Ace Racer is a promising arcade driving game with over-the-top action and ludicrous abilities. While a release date wasn't announced, we did learn that a second beta test will take place in June.
The recently released Vikingard will receive a new expansion called Midsummer in June that promises plenty of new content.
The popular survival shooter will soon receive an update that adds female characters, new clothes, guns, armour, and shelter skins. Beyond that, during Q3 of this year, an iOS version will be tested. It will be a closed test, so you will need to sign up on the official website
