  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Crew 2 Pre-order And Release Details Published

    crew 2 preorderThanks to an announcement at Gamescom, we now have a release date and pre-order details for the upcoming racer, The Crew 2.

    Firstly, it has now been confirmed that the release date for The Crew 2 has been locked in for March 16, 2018. On this release date, the game will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

    While the full release is still quite a way away, The Crew 2 developers are running a beta that should start this year. The beta sign-ups are available on the website for The Crew 2.

    Like its predecessor, The Crew 2 is a racing game that features an open world environment that players can race in. The Crew 2 is set in an open world version of USA. For the first time in this franchise, players will also be able to race in planes and boats in The Crew 2.

    While there are opportunities for different methods of transport, most of the events will be focused on standard cars. There will be four different types of events to support cars. The event types will be street racing, off-road, pro, and freestyle.

    The method with which players can switch between different vehicle types is interesting. Players can tap a button to instantly swap out their vehicle for another. For example, if a player were to take a large jump in a car, they can then swap out for a plane.

    If you're interested in what items you can get in-game for pre-ordering The Crew 2, make sure to check out the details provided below.

    • Pre-ordering any version of The Crew 2 gets you the Legendary Motors Pack, which comes with the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016 and the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 2017.
    • The $70 Deluxe Edition comes with the Legendary Motors Pack and the Motorsports Deluxe Pack, which includes the Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck 2017, the Abarth 500 2008 Monster Truck Edition, the Pilatus PC-21 aerobatics plane, and three "unique racing outfits" for your character to wear.

    The Gold Edition unlocks on March 13 and comes with the season pass, the Legendary Motors Pack, and the Motorsports Deluxe Pack. The digital version of the Gold edition costs $100 and the physical version (which also comes with a steel book) costs $110.

  • 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.

  • Ying Operator Announced For Rainbow Six Siege

    Ying Operator Announced For Rainbow Six SiegeAfter a long season of not releasing any new content, Ubisoft is finally gearing up to release some new operators for Rainbow Six: Siege.

    The first of the new operators have confirmed to be a Chinese operator named Ying. Ying is a female character that is a part of the new S.D.U (Special Defense Unit) operator faction.

    In a blog post, information about Ying was shared.

    "The S.D.U. is known for leading high-risk operations amidst Hong Kong's dense urban population. For this purpose, we opted for a character with an awareness of their surroundings and a concern for civilian lives. This is why we envisioned her as being heavily trained in close protection, which also influenced her playstyle."

    Ying has a number of close-ranged weapons available to use. This includes the SIX12 and T-95 LSW for primary weapons, and the Q-929 for a secondary weapon.

    Ying is an attack operator and her special ability is called 'Candela.' With this, Ying can roll a grenade into a room that'll explode and fill the room with a cluster of flashbangs. Ying can also attach the Candela grenade to different surfaces.

    There has been some criticism surrounding Ying's ability, with players suggesting that her ability is essentially a downgraded version of Fuze's ability. Fuze can also set off a cluster of grenades, but Fuze's grenades will outright kill opponents. Ying has the potential to be useful on hostage maps - this is where Fuze's grenades have the chance to kill the hostage and end the round.

  • New Siege Update: Loot Boxes and More

    siege loot boxesA brand new update is coming to Rainbow Six Siege, and it will be adding loot boxes, among some other changes.

    It seems most online multiplayer games now have some form of loot box - players can open these boxes for a chance of new cosmetic items in gear. We've seen this type of box in Counter Strike, Overwatch, Rocket League, Call of Duty, Halo, and now it's coming to Rainbow Six: Siege.

    Title update 2.1.1 is the new update that's bringing the loot boxes. The loot boxes are called Alpha Packs, and players will have the chance to buy them with either of the two types of currency currently in the game.

    This means players can play more games to earn renown to spend on the packs, or they can spend real money to get points to open them with. The alpha packs will feature a chance based loot system similar to other popular multiplayer games. The packs will include loot already available in the game, as well as new items of legendary rarity.

    A number of bug fixes were included in title update 2.1.1 too, including a fix to Hibana's X-Kairos gun. Previously, the pellets from the X-Kairos would fire incorrectly, causing issues when players tried to use it to blow down walls.

    The new update is already live on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The loot packs will be made available later in the summer. So far, a release date for the loot packs hasn't been confirmed, but the update has put the code in the game.

  • New Heroes and Maps Coming to For Honor

    for honor new heroesThe first For Honor season has recently come to an end, and as a result, a brand new season in For Honor with new maps and heroes is set to go live.

    The new season will go live on May 16 and will coincide with a big content update, featuring maps and new playable heroes. The next season has been codenamed Shadow and Might.

    The two new For Honor heroes are named the Shinobi and the Centurion - both offer new experiences for both spectrums of the combat field. "The Shinobi are silent warriors able to move with a dancer's grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama," while "The Centurion sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat."

    The new Shadow and Might season will also add a new class of gear - this gear will be even rarer than any previous gear tiers and has been nicknamed 'Epic' gear. With new Epic gear items, the max gear score has increased drastically. We imagine it'll be some time before any players hit the new max gear score when the next season goes live on May 16.

    All features in season 2 will be available for all players for free, however, season pass holders will get instant access to the new heroes, while those without the season pass will need to wait till May 23 and must use the in-game Steel currency to purchase the heroes.

  • 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
