  • GTA Online Land Grab Adversary Mode Goes Live

    gta online land grab adversary modeA brand new GTA Online adversary mode has gone live for PS4, Xbox One, and PC players. The new adversary mode is called Land Grab, and it is somewhat reminiscent of the Tron bike game mode that was added last year.

    "Claim what's rightfully yours in Land Grab, the latest mode to invade GTA Online. Every minute counts in Land Grab, where teams battle to control territory in an unforgiving cyberspace: shoot the other guy in the neck, grab his turf, reload and repeat. If you don't do it, someone will do it for you."

    Players must run over neon-colored tiles on the Land Grab maps to claim the tiles for their team. By doing so, the tiles will change to a player's team color. Players can fight it out on foot while fighting for territory. The team with the highest number of tiles once the clock runs down will be crowned the winner.

    The Land Grab maps feature some close quarters action, so you'll want to pull out your assault rifles, SMGs, and shotguns. You'll quickly be thrown into the action each time you die, so if you're looking for a fast paced deathmatch game mode, the new Land Grab mode should appeal to you.

    The new update for GTA Online didn't add any new rewards or in-game items, but players can earn double GTA$ & RP in the Land Grab adversary mode up until April 24th.

  • Final Call of Duty Infinite Warfare DLC Lands

    call of duty infinite warfare continuum dlcWhile it may not be long before the next Call of Duty game launches, a brand new DLC pack for Infinite Warfare has just released. The new DLC pack includes a number of new multiplayer maps and some other new gameplay content.

    The new DLC for Infinite Warfare is called Continuum and it adds four new multiplayer maps and a brand new game mode called Shuffle Zombies. The new DLC expansion is currently only available for the PlayStation 4, but it will push out to Xbox One and PC in around a month's time.

    For those interested in the DLC, you'll need to pick it up in the PSN Store for $15.

    The four new maps for the new Continuum Infinite Warfare DLC are Turista, Scrap, Archive, and Excess. The official map descriptions have been provided below:

    Turista is nestled in the middle of a giant skeleton of an ancient creature. With sniper spots scattered across a majestic, central waterfall, Turista also boasts tight interiors for fans of close-quartered combat and a three-lane design that caters to a variety of play styles.

    Scrap is set in an abandoned junkyard on the Moon. Scrap features a combination of extended sightlines and tactical pathways that reward players who engage in both long and short range combat.

    Archive features fast, frenetic engagements. It's a post-futurist art gallery where tight engagements contrast with open exterior battlegrounds in this wide three-lane style map.

    Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future metropolis, Excess is a small, circular map re-imagined from the classic Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust, that retains the intense, fast-paced combat from the original.

    black ops 2 available xbox oneCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 is now available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. The news hit via an announcement post on the Xbox news website.

    The new Black Ops 2 backwards compatible version is free to everybody that already owns the physical or digital version of Black Ops 2 on Xbox 360. If players do not own Black Ops 2, they can now purchase a digital copy for their Xbox One from the Xbox Games Store.

    Currently, the digital copy of Black Ops 2 on the Xbox One is on sale with a 60% discount for those with Xbox Live Gold and a 50% discount for those who do not have an active Gold subscription. The sale will continue until April 17.

    Unsurprisingly, the newly available backwards compatible Black Ops 2 has brought thousands of Xbox One players back to the title. With recent numbers, it looks as if the new Black Ops 2 player base may even surpass the current Infinite Warfare player base. It's great to see the Xbox One backwards compatibility program grow to support some of the biggest hits to launch on the Xbox 360.

    Will you be playing Black Ops 2 on the Xbox One? How do you think Black Ops 2 compares to Infinite Warfare? Is there even room for comparison? Judging by the recent boost in player count to Black Ops 2, it's clear many are bigger fans of the Black Ops series.

  • New Ghost Recon: Wildlands Patch Hits

    ghost recon wildlands patch 3.0A brand new patch for Ghost: Recon Wildlands has arrived for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The patch, which is codenamed 3.0, comes in at a hefty 5.3GB.

    In the new update, new season challenges have been added to Ghost Recon: Wildlands. These new challenges can offer players rewards for completing. Each season will be themed, with the first starting in this new patch. The first season is named "The Rise and Fool of Unidad" and will encourage players to take down Unidad operators.

    Season challenges will be reset every Wednesday, so players will be able to come back each week to earn more rewards each season. Players can earn up to three rewards each week as well.

    A bunch of other changes and tweaks have been added in Ghost: Recon Wildlands, including improvements to "narrative content delivery," which essentially means AI ghost dialogue has been improved. The radio playlist in cars has been randomized too, so you shouldn't find yourself listening to the same songs each time you jump into a vehicle.

    The 3.0 patch also launches alongside the first content expansion, which has been named Narco Road. This expansion features a number of new missions; 15 main missions and 5 side missions, new vehicles, new racing challenges, new weapons, and new outfits.

    The Narco Road expansion is currently only available to season pass holders, however, it will soon be available to purchase for those that do not currently own the season pass

  • New Overwatch Update Features PvE Mode and New Skins

    overwatch insurrection update pveA big new update has hit the Overwatch servers and players are getting hyped up. The new Overwatch Insurrection adds a brand new PvE mode, a bundle of new skins and plenty of new item unlocks via a brand new in-game chest.

    The new in-game loot box from the Overwatch Insurrection adds a total of 100 new in-game items, including some impressive new skins.

    The main focus of the new Overwatch Insurrection update, however, is the new PvE game mode. In the new game mode, teams of four can go up waves of incoming robot AI opponents. In the main PvE game mode, players must fight as Reinhardt, Tracer, Mercy, and Torbjorn. There is a secondary version of the same game mode where players are able to pick and choose their own heroes.

    The main PvE game mode increases in difficulty as players fight their way through it. At the end, players will go up against an Orisa-like boss. This new PvE game mode will only run until May 1, so if you want to give it a go, make sure to round up some friends before the end of this month.

    Now will be the best time to unlock some of the new item chests as well. All players are also given one free item chest simply by downloading the new update and logging in.

  • New Copilot Controller Mode Comes to Xbox One

    copilot controller mode xbox one insiderA brand new Xbox One Insider update showcases some of the new upcoming features we can expect for the Xbox One, including a brand new Copilot controller mode.

    The new Copilot controller mode will allow players to assign two controllers to a single control input. This opens up the opportunity for better accessibility for those with disabilities or better support for parent-child gameplay.

    Here's an example of the Copilot controller mode in action: A parent can switch on copilot mode while watching their child play the new Yooka Laylee game. The parent can spectate, but when the child comes across a part they're finding too difficult, the parent can jump in to help with their own controller. Both the parent's controller and the child's controller will be able to control the characters in Yooka Laylee.

    Alternatively, if a user has a disability that makes it difficult for them to access all of the buttons on a single controller at once, they now have the option to split the controls across to controller, giving them more accessibility.

    This new feature is still in the 'beta' phase in the Insider version of the Xbox One dashboard, but it should be pushed out to the live Xbox One dashboard soon. So far, the feature seems to be working as it's intended. We think this is a great new feature that should bring new opportunities for everybody to the living room.

  • New Titanfall 2 Update Goes Live

    titanfall 2 new updateA brand new Titanfall 2 update has gone live on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    The new Titanfall 2 update is named Colony Reborn and it's completely free to all Titanfall 2 owners. The new update adds a brand new map, a new weapon and a number of other changes and overall tweaks.

    Besides the free content, there are also two new prime titans and 20 new camos, banners and patches are available for purchase. The two new titans are named Northstar and Legion. The first is a lightweight, speedy Titan, while Legion is a bulkier titan, equipped with a gattling gun.

    The new free map is called Colony - this is actually a map that first made its appearance in the original Titanfall game. Old school Titanfall players should be happy to get their hands on this in Titanfall 2 - it's a close-quarters map that gave those on foot plenty of buildings to travel between while fighting titans.

    The new weapon is the R-101 - this is also a throwback to the original Titanfall game. The R-101C was the standard weapon players would start with and despite being available to low leveled players, it was one of the most versatile options available. It's great to see it back in Titanfall 2.

    A brand new execution has been added as well. Nicknamed curb check, this execution will show your enemies that you really mean business.

    Have you checked out the new Titanfall 2 update yet?

  • Destiny 2 Announced, Call of Duty WW2 Rumored

    destiny 2 announcedDestiny 2 has been announced and rumors of a Call of Duty WW2 release in 2017 are circulating the internet.

    The biggest news this week comes from the Bungie camp. Finally, after months of us knowing it was coming, Bungie has announced Destiny 2. The upcoming game is set to release later this year and should come to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

    This time around, Bungie may have learned from their mistakes on their first release for the Destiny universe. So far, we have had a single Destiny reveal trailer, and it already showcases more character and liveliness than perhaps the entirety of the first Destiny game.

    Fans that were disappointed about the lack of story and scale in the first Destiny title are definitely going to be excited about Destiny 2.

    We've also heard rumors that the next Call of Duty game will be inspired by the events of WW2. After seeing EA's back-in-time success with Battlefield 1, it comes as no surprise that Activision may have ordered one of the three COD developers to work on a world war shooter again.

    The new Call of Duty game will be developed by Sledgehammer Games. According to rumors, the title will simply be Call of Duty: WW2. Quite honestly, we're excited about seeing Call of Duty go back to its original roots, even if Battlefield did beat them to it first.

    We'll share more news about Destiny 2 and Call of Duty WW2 as it comes in.

  • Orisa is Now Available in Competitive

    orisa available competitive overwatchAfter a short induction period in quick play, Orisa is now available for play in competitive mode in Overwatch.

    For those out of the loop, Orisa is a brand new hero that recently got added to the Overwatch roster. Orisa can be found in the tank category. Players have remarked that she offers a utility kit somewhat in between Bastion and Reinhardt. For example, Orisa has the ability to lay down shields that can block incoming damage, just like Reinhardt’s shield. Orisa's basic weapon is also fairly similar to Bastions' turret ability.

    Orisa's ultimate allows her to boost the damage of players in her vicinity. For now, many players are still getting to grips with Orisa and we're not sure where she'll sit on the competitive meta if anywhere at all. With Reinhardt, Zarya and Roadhog still dominating the tank game, and other picks like D.Va and Winston still being relevant, it's hard to see where Orisa will fit in on the table.

    It'll certainly take some more time to see what Orisa is truly capable of. For now, she's considered a well-rounded champion and her skills offer a lot of utility to the team. With that in mind, however, she's missing that special something to make her a star tank player currently.

    We wouldn't say Orisa need a buff but it'll be some time before high tier competitive players get to grips with her. We'd love to see her be a regular pick in competitive games.

    Have you tried out Orisa yet? What are your thoughts on this new tank hero? Think she could be a new game-changer, or is she lagging behind the top tanks?
