  • Ghost Recon Wildlands Open Beta Live

    ghost recon wildlands betaThe Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta has started - players can already sign into Uplay, Steam, Xbox Live or PSN to install the open beta.

    The beta should now be live for all users in regions across the world. Currently, the beta is live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Currently, the beta download size is sitting at roughly 24GB for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, if you installed the previous PC beta you'll only need to download 19GB worth of data.

    Either way, you may want to start downloading now - this will be your last chance to give Ghost Recon Wildlands a try for free before the game is officially released. The open beta will remain open until Monday the 27th, so you've still got lots of time to get the game download and get playing.

    This time round, the open beta for Wildlands will have a total of two regions for exploring, as opposed to the full game's 21 different regions. The first region is Itacua, which was first seen in the previous beta period. The second region is called Montuyoc and it hasn't yet been seen by the public.

    To encourage players to try out the open beta, Ubisoft is also offering any players that play the beta now with an additional mission in the full game. Players will need to play the beta during this week and also purchase Ghost Recon: Wildlands before March 31 to get access to the mission, however.

  • Elder Scrolls Online Gets New Housing Patch

    elder scrolls online housingA previously PC-exclusive update for Elder Scrolls Online has finally made it's way to the Xbox One and the PS4. The update in question adds housing to the world of ESO for the first time since the game's release.

    The new free update is called Homestead and with it, players will be able to purchase their very own home to call their own. Once a home is purchased, a player can customize the interior in a variety of different ways. The Homestead options available include roughly 40 different rooms and buildings types, ranging in size, price and functionality.

    All of the available player houses in Homestead are instanced, so every player can own their own version of any house they please in the game world, so long as they've got the gold for it of course.

    The very high-end houses are essentially separate islands off of the mainland of Tamriel. There are ten different types of islands, all of which are themed around one of the 10 playable races in Elder Scrolls Online.

    With the introduction of housing, players now have the opportunity to craft new items - all of the 2,000 different decorative interior items can be bought, crafted and traded between players.

    This is by no means a necessary update for Elder Scrolls Online so to see that it's been pushed out for free is refreshing and we're excited to see what might come out of the Elder Scrolls Online development camp next.

  • New Battlefield 1 Guns in DLC Test Servers

    battlefield 1 they shall not passBattlefield 1 is soon going to be receiving an arsenal of new weapons as part of the next upcoming DLC for the game. A lot of the new weapons have already made their way onto the public test servers so we've already got plenty of information to share on the new guns.

    All of the new guns will be a part of the 'They Shall Not Pass' DLC pack. In total, there will be 11 new weapons included in the new DLC - some are completely new, while others are modifications or variations of existing guns. There also seems to be a total of three new melee weapons coming to Battlefield 1.

    The three melee weapons are a Nail Knife, a Trench Fleur and a Cogwheel Club. Like the other weapons in the base game of Battlefield 1, none of the new guns or melee weapons will be available straight out of the gate. Players will need to unlock the weapons, either via specific challenges or in some cases purchasing them with skill points.

    The new weapons will be released to the public in March - it's not been 100% confirmed yet but it's likely that the weapons will be exclusive to those who own the season pass and those who purchase the They Shall Not Pass DLC.

    On top of including new weapons, They Shall Not Pass will include a number of new maps, the playable French faction, new game modes and two new tanks.

  • Nintendo Switch Availability May Be Limited

    nintendo switch availability 2017Because of the popularity surrounding the Nintendo Switch, getting hold of a console on launch day may prove to be a little difficult. Currently, most Nintendo Switch consoles are being picked up via pre-orders, so if you're interested in picking up the console too, it's advisable to do this as well.

    Alternatively, if you're planning to pick up a Nintendo Switch on launch day, you may be better off heading to the midnight launch. GameStop merchandising director Bub Puzon has mentioned that "We will have a limited supply of the Nintendo Switch systems on launch day for walk-in customers. Our teams made this happen. I would strongly suggest customers plan on attending one of our midnight launch events for a shot at securing one of these extra units. They will go fast!"

    As you can imagine, this ethos is likely to be replicated with most other retailers and online stores.

    The Nintendo Switch is set to release on March 3 - so far there is a total of 39 different games that have been confirmed for the platform. To begin with, however, just six titles will be available at launch. The six launch titles are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Super Bomberman R, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators and I Am Setsuna. All six games will retail for between $40-$60, while the Switch itself will be on sale for $300.

    A number of other games are set to release throughout the remainder of 2017, with Super Mario Odyssey landing during the 2017 Holiday period.

  • Street Fighter Red Bull Kumite 2017 is Happening

    street fighter red bull kumiteRed Bull is hosting yet another Street Fighter tournament this year, and the player roster just keeps getting better. If you're at all interested in watching Street Fighter V, the Red Bull Kumite 2017 tournament is something worth looking out for.

    The tournament will take place on May 27 - during the event, a total of 256 players will compete for a chance to win a grand prize. On May 28, any winners from the previous days and any prestigious players lucky to have received an invite will fight it out till the grand finals later that day.

    So far we have a total of eight professional players have been invited to the Red Bull Kumite event. The first four to receive their invitations were Tokido, Xiao Hai, PR Balrog, and RB. The biggest name to stand out here is, of course, Tokido - a player that has already battled his way to the grand finals of two previous Kumite events from Red Bull.

    A couple of days after the first four players were announced, four new players were brought into the mix by Red Bull. These four are Nemo, Infexious, Mister Crimson, and Bonchan. All of these players have come a long way in their respective fighting game communities so it'll be very exciting to see them all battle it out in Street Fighter V during the tournament at the end of May.

    Are you excited for this? We'll keep you updated with any more player announcements as they happen.

  • No Halo Wars 2 Competitive Ranking Yet

    halo wars 2 competitive rankingHalo Wars 2 is now available for Xbox One and Windows 10, across most regions. So far, critics have taken a liking to the real-time strategy game sequel, but the game isn't quite complete.

    If you were a diehard Halo Wars fan, you'll know that a big part of the multiplayer aspect focused on the leaderboards and ranking system. Thousands of players would compete to be the very best, and this kind of competitive atmosphere helped to keep the Halo Wars name alive strong after the initial release date.

    In Halo Wars 2 there isn't a competitive ranking system at launch, but it's for what we think is a good reason. David Nicholson, the executive producer at Creative Assembly, mentioned that they decided not to add competitive ranking at launch, "Because we want to make sure the balance is there. We think we've got the game well-balanced, with the two betas we had. But we continually make those balance changes. Our plan is to bring it out, but just not at launch."

    This means that any balancing oversights the developers may have missed during beta will be ironed out before they launch their competitive matchmaking system. So far no details on how the ranking system will work, but we'd imagine it would be a more modernized version of the original Halo Wars leaderboards, as opposed to the kind of system currently seen in Halo 5: Guardians.

    We'll have to wait to see how things pan out - for now, the rest of Halo Wars 2 is readily available for all to enjoy.

  • NBA eLeague is Coming

    NBA eleague 2018NBA fans rejoice, Take-Two and The NBA have just announced an eLeague for their NBA video games. The esports league will focus on the NBA 2K game series and will open up the opportunity for players to compete at a competitive level for monetary prizes.

    "We believe we have a unique opportunity to develop something truly special for our fans and the young and growing eSports community. We look forward to combining our best-in-class NBA sports team operators with Take-Two's competitive gaming expertise to create a brand new league experience."

    Don't worry, the real NBA league will still go ahead unaffected, but this branching off by NBA and the subsequent partnering with Take-Two will open up new opportunities, specifically for those that play NBA 2K competitively.

    The league will start in 2018. 30 teams will take part in the league and each NBA franchise has been set the task to scout out players for their teams. Each team will have 5 players in total. Interestingly, players will not be able to use existing players in the league and will instead be forced to create their own avatars to represent themselves.

    "Through the NBA 2K series, which is renowned throughout the world for capturing the authenticity of the NBA and the passion of its fans, we have a proven track record of highly successful collaboration. With this new venture, Take-Two and the NBA aim to fuel the accelerating growth of eSports and take the thrill of competition to exciting new heights."

  • Resident Evil 7 DLC Out Today

    resident evil 7 banned footageA brand new Resident Evil 7 DLC pack is now available on the PlayStation 4.

    After the launch on January 24, Resident Evil 7 has already received its second DLC expansion. This new expansion has been named Banned Footage Vol. 2 and it follows the first Banned Footage volume. The new DLC includes 2 missions and a new 'comical' game mode.

    The first new mission in the new Resident Evil 7 DLC is called 21 Scenario, which Capcom has provided a small description for. "Gamble life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker."

    The second mission in the new DLC is called Daughters Scenario and this serves as a prequel to the storyline in the missions in the base game.

    The new game mode that's been bundled with the DLC expansion is named Jack's 55th Birthday, in which players are tasked with feeding Jack Baker, the main villain in Resident Evil 7, with large amounts of food. It sounds odd, but it's surprisingly enjoyable and equally as hilarious.

    Currently, the Resident Evil 7 Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC is only available on the PlayStation 4. It will remain exclusive to the PS4 until February 21, at which point the DLC will be released on Xbox One and PC. The original Banned Footage Vol.1 DLC is still only available on PS4, but volume 1 will be released alongside the new DLC on February 21 as well.

  • Fnatic and AS Roma Partner to Create FIFA eSports Team

    fnatic AS roma fifa teamFnatic and AS Roma are giants from the esports and soccer world, respectively, and now they have partnered up to create a brand new FIFA esports team.

    Sports organizations have been stepping into the esports world a lot recently, and this recent partnership between Fnatic and AS Roma showcases that these new ventures aren't going to be slowing down anytime soon. Despite FIFA not quite reaching the global stage like CS:GO, Overwatch or League of Legends, AS Roma's passion for the world of soccer has helped Fnatic to source a team of professional FIFA players.

    Aman "Aman" Seddiqi, Sam "Poacher" Carmody and Nicolo' "Insa" Mirra will now all be part of the Fnatic/AS Roma FIFA team, being lead by manager Colin Johnson. Fnatics' role will be to "manage the team and offer support for training, events and provide all esports-related logistical knowledge to nurture them," whilst AS Roma are simply looking to expand their club's reach into the esports world.

    AS Roma play in the Italian league Serie A and they have been around since 1927. They are one of the most successful Italian football clubs on the planet so this new FIFA esports announcement is big news.

    AS Roma team president Jim Pallotta mentioned, "With the tremendous growth of eSports and continued attention placed on games like FIFA, we've partnered with Fnatic, the world's leading eSports organization, to launch our eSports team. This joint venture will enable us to start building a strong legacy in eSports and engage our fans in exciting new ways."

  • Battlefield 1 Winter Update Released, Details Inside

    battlefield 1 winter updateDICE has just pushed out the winter update for Battlefield 1. The update should be available now for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    While the update has already landed, most players still don't know about the highlights of the patch and what to expect from it. In this article, we've covered all bases, so take a read below to check out what's new.

    Unsurprisingly one of the biggest focuses for the winter update was to fix bugs. DICE has done a wonderful job to keep Battlefield 1 running smoothly across all platforms and the latest winter update has eliminated plenty of little bugs and errors that have been pointed out by the community in the past.

    The next biggest focus for the Battlefield 1 winter update is player progression. From now on, the maximum class rank will be 50, as opposed to 10. This applies to all of the four main classes, the pilot, tanker and all of the elite kits.

    To go alongside the new class levels, there are brand new dog tags and customization options. Every ten rank after class rank 10 will introduce new items for players. Server owners will also have more control in the latest update. Server owners can now kick and permanently ban players from their server and a setup for map voting on custom servers is now available.

    The Battlefield 1 winter patch was originally only going to be a small update for bug fixing so these new adjustments are welcome changes. The next big Battlefield 1 update is still in the works as well and should bring a larger range of tweaks and balancing changes.
