  • 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.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Maps Being Removed From Ranked

    rainbow six siege maps removedIn a sudden, never-before-seen move, Ubisoft has planned to remove a number of maps from the competitive map pool.

    Once the maps are removed, they'll no longer appear in the ranked game mode. They will, however, remain in casual mode and terrorist hunt mode.

    Going forward, only nine maps will remain in the ranked mode for Rainbow Six Siege. The nine remaining maps are Bank, Clubhouse, Oregon, Kafe, Consulate, Chalet, Border, Coastline, and Skyscraper. These are the same maps that will be used in competitive leagues.

    "Moving forward, we will introduce the new Ranked and ESL Pro League playlists at the same time we perform the rank reset--and all of that will occur at the start of the new season," Ubisoft explained. "The Ranked playlist, much like the ESL playlist, will be rotated each Season, offering a different selection of available maps."

    Interestingly, not all maps will remain in the game. Some maps will be removed from the game entirely to be reworked. Casual mode will have a total of 15 maps. The first nine maps are the same as those listed above, while the other six are Kanal, Hereford, University, House, Plane, and Theme Park.

    Ubisoft will also be removing the map preference system that previously allowed players to prioritize certain maps. Going forward, all players will be forced to play a map at random from any of the maps listed above.

    All of the map changes will be going live alongside the new Operation Blood Orchid 3.0 update.

  • Lesion, The New Rainbow Six Siege Operator Revealed

    lesion rainbow six siegeIn anticipation for Rainbow Six Blood Orchid, Ubisoft has gone and announced a brand new operator. The new operator is a part of the S.D.U unit and he will join the Chinese operator team on the defending side.

    So far, Ubisoft has only teased us with a small clip of Lesion, so we know very little about Lesion's backstory or how he fits into the lore. We do, however, have some information on the weapons that Lesion can use, as well as the ability that Lesion is equipped with.

    Lesion will have access to either the T-5 SMG or Six12 shotgun for a primary weapon. Lesion's secondary weapon is the Q-929, the same weapon available for the other Chinese operator, Ying.

    Lesion's ability is expected to be similar to Echo's ability. Lesion can throw a device that can stick to surfaces. Once activated, Lesion's device will let out needles that will slow down nearby enemies and cause their vision to be blurred.

    Lesion's device can also deal damage, but unlike Echo's device, it cannot be controlled or moved remotely. Instead, the device will have a single detonation.

    Lesion will launch alongside Ying in the upcoming Blood Orchid expansion. The new expansion will also include a new map and a Polish operator that was originally planned for a previous expansion that has since been delayed.

    All of the new operators will be available to purchase with earnable in-game credits or with credits that can be purchased with real money. The new map will be available to everybody for free.

  • Overwatch: D.Va To Get a Big Rework

    overwatch dvaOverwatch developers, Blizzard, are preparing for a much-needed rework for D.Va. The new update will change her ultimate ability and make a number of other changes to how she works in-game.

    For a long time, players have complained about how overpowered D.Va was. As it is right now, D.Va starts the game as an off-tank, with lots of health points and a considerable amount of damage. On its own, the first form of D.Va can be dealt with without too much difficulty.

    However, when D.VA loses her mech and hops on foot, her fast movement speed and her ridiculously small hitboxes make her a nightmare to deal with.

    The biggest problem with D.Va, however, is without a doubt her Defense Matrix ability. With Defense Matrix, D.Va can protect herself and others from incoming damage. In the rework, Defense Matrix will get a nerf - it will last for half as long.

    To balance out the nerf, D.Va will be given a new ability that will help her to play more aggressively.

    The new ability is called Micro Missiles and description about the ability from Blizzard has been provided below.

    "D.Va launches a long salvo of small missiles that explode on impact, dealing damage in a small radius around them. This ability can be used while using her other abilities or firing her Fusion Cannons."

    What are your thoughts on these new changes? Do you think Blizzard is moving D.Va in the right direction, or did they make the wrong move?

  • Big Patch Live for Battlefield 1

    big patch battlefield 1A brand new update has gone live for Battlefield 1 and it contains a huge number of changes and tweaks to the game.

    To begin with, the new patch adds a brand new map to Battlefield 1. The new map is called Lupkow Pass - it's available to anybody that has either the season pass or the Name of the Tsar DLC.

    The new Lupkow Pass map is set in Russia, deep in the Carpathian mountains. A lot of the new map is focused on verticality and fights between different levels of the mountains.

    While the new map is limited to those that have the DLC, there are a number of features and changes in the new update that is available to everybody.

    One of the biggest changes includes a bug fix that stops the weapon loadout UI from disappearing. The horse turn speed has been increased by 25% too, which will make those that use the horse more mobile.

    DICE has also made it so jumping over obstacles with horses has been improved. The jumping mechanic is now far more reliable, so players should be able to feel confident before taking their next jump. Sounds for single-fire and semi-automatic weapons have been improved - they should no longer cut off randomly.

    There are a huge number of tweaks, bug fixes and small changes that have been applied to the new patch too. The full notes can be seen on the Battlefield website.

  • Battlefield 1 To Get 5v5 Incursions Mode

    battlefield 1 incursions modeBattlefield 1 is getting a brand new game mode that'll limit team size and put emphasis on team play within a much smaller squad.

    The new game mode is called Incursions and it will feature a 10-player limit, with 5 players per team. While the player limit has been limited severely in the Incursions mode, it will still feature maps and vehicles that are used in other game modes.

    To begin with, Incursions will go into a closed alpha state. During this time, players can register their interest to try the game mode and help to build the experience for the community. Afterwards, the game will be pushed out to live servers on all platforms that support Battlefield 1.

    To begin with, the game mode will be limited to the PC during alpha phase. During this time, gameplay mechanics could be adjusted drastically. For now, though, DICE's vision for Incursions is to create a strategy-focused game mode with a highly competitive skill curve.

    "Your choice in kit plays a critical role in the success of your squad, while every destroyed piece of environment can shift the entire momentum of the battle. Only the sharpest strategic teams will rise to the top of the competition. Every move and every bullet become the difference between victory and defeat. Scoring has been overhauled to create opportunities for dramatic comebacks and nail-biting upsets."

    DICE announced the new game mode at Gamescom and also published a video showcasing the game mode. The new trailer is available to view on their Youtube channel.

  • No Man's Sky Getting an Update - Worth Revisiting?

    no man's sky atlas rising updateSurprise, surprise - No Man's Sky is getting a big update and it may even make the game worth a revisit.

    When No Man's Sky first launched, it was eaten into by the gaming community because of the developer behind the game, Hello Games, vastly under delivered. They broke many promises about the content of the game.

    For example, Hello Games mentioned that No Man's Sky would have multiplayer, and the game would have a universe where players could leave their mark. Both of these features were quickly debunked as soon as No Man's Sky launched.

    In the new update, No Man's Sky will be getting some kind of story that serves to piece together the game's existing content and provide players with more of a reason to explore.

    The new update is called Atlas Rises, and it is available to all No Man's Sky players for free. The patch notes for Atlas Rises haven't yet been revealed, but the most notable features include a brand new story and a quick travel feature that will allow players to travel between worlds quickly.

    When the patch notes are released for Atlas Rises, we'll share more on this brand new update. Do you think a brand new story could be enough to get players to return to No Man's Sky?

    Let us know your thoughts on No Man's Sky and Hello Games by leaving a comment below. We'd love to hear your opinions.

  • Gears of War 4 August Update Arrives

    gears of war 4 august updateA brand new update has landed for Gears of War 4 and it adds two new maps and a number of other changes. Learn about the new features in Gears of War 4 below.

    First things first, let's talk about the new maps that have made their way to Gears of War 4 in the new August update. The first map is Canals. This is the return of a classic. The map features three bridges that cross over a small canal. The map itself is quite small, and players will best remember it for the Longshot spawn that is available at the very center of the map.

    In fact, Canals is all about sniping. The three bridges create three lanes for snipers to aim down - getting hold of a sniper on this map will be very useful. It's the sniper's dream.

    The next map is Forge Blitz - this is an even tighter and more fast paced version of the original Forge map. A few changes have been made to the original version of Forge to make Forge Blitz flow much better. You'll be in the action within seconds after spawning, but don't worry, there's just enough room to give a few seconds of peace each time you spawn.

    Some other changes have been introduced to the August Gears of War 4 update. For example, the daily first win credit reward has been increased to 500 credits instead of just 100. Some small changes have also been made to the Escalation map.

  • Brand New Weaponized Vehicle Added to GTA Online

    gta online pick up insurgentA brand new update has been added to GTA Online that introduced a new weaponized vehicle and a number of other changes. As usual, a new list of items has been put up for discount and the items on sale last week have now reverted back to their standard prices.

    The biggest feature in this new update is without a doubt the new vehicle. The vehicle is weaponized and is called the Insurgent Pickup Custom. As the name suggests, the Insurgent Pickup Custom is essentially a Pick-up style Insurgent vehicle. A player can sit on the top of the Pick-up and use the heavy machine gun that the vehicle is equipped with.

    The player on the turret is vulnerable, while players inside the Insurgent Pickup are safe from bullets. To fully upgrade the vehicle with the best armor and weapons, players must first purchase the Pickup, then upgrade it in the mobile operations center.

    If you haven't managed to get access to the new gun running content yet, you'll be happy to hear that some of the bunkers are now on sale. For a limited time, you can now get 30% off the full price of the Farmhouse Bunker, 25% off the Smoke Tree Road Bunker, and 10% off the Grapeseed Bunker. All upgrades and style improvements for each bunker are now 25% off.

    In other news, the Power Mad adversary mode is still rewarding players with double GTA dollars and RP.
