  • NRG Picks Up new Gears of War Team


    Could Gears of War be the next big competitive console game?

    With Gears of War eSports gaining more traction, more organizations are starting to pick up Gears teams. In recent happenings, NRG has now picked up their own Gears of War team. The team will compete in upcoming North American events, including the ESL Pro League.

    The new Gears of War team has seen a number of different players come together for the first time, but it’s certain that all of the players on the new NRG squad have the potential to do well.

    "Long-time teammates Sleepytime and Sicamore, who placed 4th together in both seasons of the ESL Pro-League, are joined by their season 1 teammate Twist3DShot, season 2 teammate Xcells, and; Franko, who placed 4th in the recent Gears eSports North American Open with GOONZ, to create a roster that could prove to have the experience, synergy, and balance of skill-sets to excel in Gears 4. With every member boasting top 4 finishes, the new NRG squad proved to be amongst the best in Gears UE, and are entering Gears 4 with a renewed sense of purpose following their acquisition."

    There really has never been any better time for organizations to put their efforts into the Gears of War competitive scene so it'll be really exciting to see just how well the new NRG squad will perform. Here's a quick recap of the new lineup.

  • Two New Operators Coming to Rainbow Six Siege

    Details on two new operators dropped during the recent ESL Pro League for Rainbow Six. The two new operators will be part of a new faction. Which, unsurprisingly will be representative of the Navy SEALS. Even though the addition of the SEALS faction was expected, we're pretty excited to see them make it into the game, because let's be honest the Navy SEALS have always been pretty awesome, especially in Rainbow Six.

    We'll be getting a defender and an attacker for the new Navy SEAL team, and in similar fashion to the previous Black Ice DLC release, one of which will be a male character whilst the other will be a female character. The first character for the upcoming DLC is named Valkyrie - she will be the defender and will have a range of extra surveillance systems at her disposal. On the other side of the field Blackbeard has been introduced as an attacker who will have access to a rifle with a deployable shield weapon attachment.

    Unfortunately we haven't received much more information besides the details listed above and the promo image also provided in this article, but we will be hearing more about the new DLC operators on May 9 during the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals. Following from that, season pass holders will be given access to the operators for free a few days after the finals. We'd expect, alongside the new operators, a new map may also be added for all players.
