  • New LawBreakers 1.3 Patch Released

    lawbreakers patch 1.3A brand new patch for LawBreakers has recently gone live on both the PS4 and the PC version of the game. For the most part, the patch has gone ahead smoothly, although there has been a temporary issue with weapon stickers that the developers are currently working to get solved.

    In the new patch, a nighttime version of the Promenade map has been added. Role limits have now been set to 2, and Kick decals can now be sprayed by players across the game environment.

    A number of balancing changes have been made to different game modes, too. For example, the Blitzball mode has been made more challenging. The Blitzball shield radius has been increased from 850 to 1000.

    The Overcharge mode has had similar changes - the radius for reducing the Battery's shield has increased from 750 to 850, and the contest radius for the Battery has increased to 1000. The contest area has also changed to a sphere as opposed to a cylinder, which should make it easier for players to hold the spot while moving.

    Uplink has had the same changes as Overcharge. Finally, the Trench map has had some adjustments. A collision area has been added to the top of the central zone above capture point B. This allows Harrier players to throw Supercharger Stations at that area.

    A large number of bug fixes have also been applied to this latest patch, as well as some overall UI fixes and small tweaks.

  • New NBA 2K18 Social Space To Change Up Multiplayer

    NBA 2K18 neighborhoodsThis year, the NBA 2K18 multiplayer mode is getting a huge overhaul. In NBA 2K18, a new social space called Neighborhoods is being added.

    In the new Neighborhoods mode, players will be able to customize their own player, interact with others, and take part in a variety of different activities, some of which are related to basketball, while some aren't.

    The Neighborhood mode will take place in a separate map that'll feature a set of American city blocks. Basketball courts, shops for customizing your character, and other recreational areas will be included.

    The new Neighborhood mode will essentially work as a lobby for players to hang out in while waiting for games in either of the MyPark, Pro-Am, and MyCareer modes.

    Players will also be able to take part in different activities to improve their player's skills to help them be better players on the basketball court. Players will share the Neighborhood with other players that are online.

    At any time, a player can interact with another player and invite them to a MyPark game. Alternatively, they can drop out and progress through the MyCareer or Pro-Am modes.

    NBA 2K18 is set to launch for the majority of platforms on September 19. The consoles that will support NBA 2K18 includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

    The new MyCareer mode will have more of a focus on developing your own personal storyline, as opposed to progressing through a season as an existing basketball team.

  • Siege Operation Blood Orchid Trailer Drops, Out Now

    siege operation blood orchidThe new Rainbow Six Siege Operation Blood Orchid expansion is finally out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    After a long wait, the latest expansion, which adds three new operators, a new map, and a large number of gameplay fixes and balancing changes, has gone live.

    Ubisoft released a new trailer for the operation. During the trailer, the new map is showcased, alongside the three new operators.

    As mentioned previously, the new map for Operation Blood Orchid is Theme Park. It's a spooky-themed nighttime map that's based on an abandoned theme park. The trailer also shows off Ying and Lesion, the two new operators from Hong Kong. The trailer ends by giving a sneak peek at the third operator, Ela.

    Ela is a Polish operator that was originally planned for a now-axed Polish themed operation.

    While the trailer does show the three new operators in action, it doesn't do much to showcase their new abilities. We've provided a quick overview of the new operators below.

    Ying is a Chinese attacker that can fire a cluster of flashbangs into a room to temporarily blind defenders.

    Lesion is a Chinese defender that can throw a device down that can damage and disorientate enemies when it is detonated.

    Ela is a Polish defender that can place down gadgets on the floor or on walls. Once the gadget is detonated, enemies nearby temporarily lose their hearing and are given a dizzying effect.

  • All Destiny 2 Exotic Weapons And Armor Leaked

    destiny 2 exotic weaponsWhile Destiny 2 still isn't out yet, we have some new information about the game thanks to a recent leak. The new leak reveals all of the exotic weapons and armor that'll come to Destiny 2 on launch day.

    The leak was carried out by Reddit users NFSgaming, supadhalster, and SleeperWho.

    The leak also contains plenty of information about the game content, the tower, the final campaign mission, the strikes, and some information about the story missions.

    The leak also shares detailed information about the new subclasses and the different abilities that they'll have in Destiny 2. The most exciting information, however, is without a doubt the exotics information.

    Unfortunately, the leaked images have since been removed, but we can confirm that Destiny 2 will have more new exotics that it originally had in the first Destiny. Players will also be able to get access to some of the exotic weapons and armor pieces originally released in Destiny 1.

    Interestingly, the Gjallarhorn rocket launcher will not be making a return to Destiny 2, despite it being one of the most popular exotics in the first Destiny. Other than the Gjallarhorn, it seems as if all other old exotics will be making a return.

    If you'd like to look into the new exotics and leaked Destiny 2 story information, it can be found online and in the Destinythegame subreddit on reddit.com. We won't post them here because we understand that the information is loaded with spoilers.

  • PUBG Playerbase Overtook F2P Title Dota 2

    pubg playerbase beats dota 2If you haven't played Playerunknown's Battlegrounds yet, chances are you've at least heard of it. The game has quickly become the most played Steam title on PC. Recently, Battlegrounds managed to overtake Dota 2, the reigning Steam champ.

    Battlegrounds hit a peak of 877,000 players earlier this month. With these stats, it narrowly outperformed Dota 2 for both peak player and concurrent player numbers.

    Since the inception of Dota 2 on Steam, not a single game has managed to consistently stay as high in the charts as Battlegrounds has. Over the last few years, very few gameplay titles have managed to get past Dota 2, either. This is partially due to the fact that Dota 2 is a free-to-play MOBA title, just like League of Legends. It's also due to the fact that Steam's company, Valve, has developed the game.

    The closest game to compete with Dota 2 is Valve's other game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. A game currently retailing for around $10.

    The recent stats are even more impressive when you realize that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds currently retails for around $30, three times as much as Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

    Currently, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is exclusive to the PC platform. A third party developer is working on bringing Battlegrounds to Xbox One, and we should see it make it to Xbox's Early Access program soon.

    We don't yet have a release date for the Xbox One version, and there's no news of PUBG ever coming to PlayStation 4.

  • Rune: Ragnarok Is A New Upcoming Open World RPG

    rune ragnarok new open world gameHuman Head, the same development team as Prey and Prey 2, is now working on a brand new open world RPG game called Rune: Ragnarok.

    Surprisingly, Rune: Ragnarok isn't the first Rune game in the franchise. In fact, Human Head created a game called Rune that released way back in 2000.

    It looks like Rune: Ragnarok will be the game to revitalize that universe in an exciting new way. So far, we know very little about Rune: Ragnarok other than that the development team is working on it, and it'll be released some point in the future.

    No details on release windows or gameplay reveal trailers have yet been mentioned.

    We do have a single non-gameplay reveal trailer though. In the reveal trailer the narrator is heard saying the following:

    "From birth, the children of the North hear tales of the end of the world. A battle so great the gods fall and the Nine Worlds are consumed by frost and fire. But these tales are false. The gods did not perish. For seven years our worlds have been devoured by death and destruction. Now, mankind must rise and do what the gods could not. Ragnarok must end."

    We don't have any information about which platforms the new Ragnarok game will be launched on, but Human Head does mention on their website that they work on PC, consoles, VR, and mobile devices. Hopefully, Rune Ragnarok will get a launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We may even see some VR-related gameplay if we're lucky.

  • New Friday The 13th Update Released

    new friday 13th update teamkillingA brand new update for Friday The 13th has now been released to the masses. The update is available for download on all platforms.

    The new update for Friday The 13th mostly brings a number of bug fixes and gameplay balancing. Most importantly, however, is the removal of friendly fire in most instances. Going forward, it will now be very hard to take out your teammates. These changes have been made to help cut down on griefing.

    According to the development team, the team-killing mechanic was getting abused - the community reported 'rampant abuse' of the feature.

    The only way players can kill their teammates after this latest update is if they run them over. This means any weapons that counselors pickup cannot be used on their teammates.

    Interestingly, this new update also changes the layout of most of the maps in Friday The 13th. Maps have been made smaller to help improve the flow of gameplay and to keep things as action-packed and tense as possible.

    The full changes for all of the maps can be seen below:

    • Added Small Maps for the existing maps; Packanack Small, Higgins Haven Small, and Camp Crystal Lake Small.
    • Increased the density of Kill locations on all maps.
    • Adjusted collision on Maps to prevent people from standing on water.
    • Adjusted collision on piers to prevent cars from driving on them.
    • Added a Map Icon to Campfire Kills.
    • Fixed a number of kill spots that were not functioning.
    • Fixed an issue with not being able to fix boat propellers based on boat positioning on the dock.
    • Placed collision under piers to prevent people from swimming under them.
    • Fixed a number of areas that the player could get out of the map.
    • Fixed a number of areas that Counselors could get to that Jason could not.
    • Added better collision around Boat Exits to prevent Jason from getting to areas he shouldn't be in.
  • Rainbow Six Siege Blood Orchid 3.0 Patch Notes Released

    Rainbow six siege blood orchid releasedOperation Health has finally ended and Siege players are now going to get access to new content and changes as part of the Blood Orchid 3.0 patch.

    The entire expansion will be made available for free to all players - this means that everybody can play the new maps and new operators included in the operation. However, despite the content being released for free, those with the Year 2 season pass will get the operators for free, while all other players will need to spend renown on the operators to unlock them.

    Alternatively, players can purchase new operators with real money via the Rainbow Six Credits system.

    One of the biggest new additions to Rainbow Six Siege in the new Blood Orchid operation is the Theme Park map. This new map features a creepy environment based in an abandoned theme park.

    This time around, we are also seeing three new operators being brought into Rainbow Six Siege. The first operator is Ying, a Chinese attacker that can fire a cluster of flashbangs into a room to temporarily blind defenders.

    The next operator is Lesion, a Chinese Defender that can throw a device down that can damage and disorientate enemies when it is detonated.

    The final operator is called Ela - she's a Polish operator that was originally planned for a now-canceled Polish-based operation for Rainbow Six Siege.

    There are many other new changes to Rainbow Six Siege as part of the Operation Blood Orchid update. There are now new weapon Skins, there have been FPS improvements, and many optimizations and balancing tweaks have been made across the board.

  • Knack 2 Gets Free PS4 Demo In Europe

    knack 2 demo europeA new demo has been released for the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Knack 2. The new demo is currently only available in Europe and Australia. If you're in either of these regions you can jump in and download the demo for free right now.

    So far, the demo weighs in at just 2.6GB. If you download it from the store today, you'll have roughly one week to play before Knack 2 is launched worldwide. Unfortunately, there's no evidence that the Knack 2 demo will come to any other regions, including North America.

    Knack 2 was originally revealed via a leak quite some time ago, but it wasn't until Sony's PSX event last year that the game was officially revealed by Sony. Now, Knack 2 is set to launch on September 5 in North America. Knack 2 will also launch in Europe and Australia a day later, on September 6.

    The original Knack didn't get as much critical appeal as the developers had originally hoped. However, game designer Mark Cerny feels like the sequel touches on a lot of the areas that the original game got wrong.

    When asked about the sequel, Mark Cerny mentioned that "There's a lot unexplored there, I think anybody who played the [original] game would tell you that."

    Are you interested in the Knack sequel? If the previews are anything to go by, it looks as if Knack 2 will be a considerable improvement over the first Knack game.

  • Age of Empires IV Announced

    age of empires ivOut of nowhere, Microsoft has geared up to announce Age of Empires IV. The game will launch for Xbox One and Windows, and it will also launch a definitive edition of the first three Age of Empires games.

    So far, we know very little about Age of Empires IV besides the fact that it's coming. We do know that the studio responsible for Age of Empires IV will be the Microsoft Games Studio. Many of the developers from the original Age of Empires trilogy have moved on, so instead Microsoft has hired out the bulk of developers responsible for the Company of Heroes real time strategy franchise.

    The development team made a statement alongside the Age of Empires IV announcement trailer.

    "We can't wait to tap into our strengths as a studio to fuse historical context with deep strategic gameplay, and to bring this franchise back to the forefront of gaming and into the hands of its beloved community. We look forward to sharing with you more details in the months to come. For now, just know we are beyond excited to be working on the next entry into the legendary franchise."

    The last Age of Empires title launched in 2011 as a free-to-play game for Windows. Many players didn't consider it worthy of the Age of Empires name, however, and the last game to get praise from critics across the globe was Age of Empires 3, which launched in 2005.

    The Age of Empires Definitive Edition is set to launch exclusively for Windows 10 later this year in the Windows Store. The Definitive Edition will go on sale on October 19 and will include remastered versions of the first three Age of Empires games.
