  • 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.

  • 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?

  • New Overwatch Map, Junkertown Announced

    overwatch map junkertownA brand new Overwatch map has been announced. The new map is called Junkertown and it was first announced at Gamescom.

    The new map will be an escort map and the environment has been created to represent Junkrat and Roadhog's home town.

    In the lore, Junkertown is set in the heart of Australia. This was one of the countries to get impacted by the Omnic crisis the hardest, and as a result, the entire environment is falling to pieces. Buildings and shelters are put together with whatever scrap material can be found.

    Those that live in Junkertown are known as Junkers. Originally, both Junkrat and Roadhog lived within Junkertown as Junkers, too. However, the duo was caught stealing from the queen of Junkertown. As punishment, both Junkrat and Roadhog were exiled from the city.

    To go alongside the map announcement, Blizzard released a brand new video on their Youtube channel that showed Junkrat and Roadhog explaining the new Junkertown map.

    The video is filled with jokes and laughs and gives an insight into the personalities of both Junkrat and Roadhog.

    So far, a release date for Junkertown hasn't been announced, but Blizzard has mentioned that the map will be coming to Overwatch soon.

    What are your thoughts on the new Junkertown map? Are you excited to get access to a new free escort map soon, or are you more interested in new characters for Overwatch?

    Recently, Doomfist was finally released to Overwatch and many players are already finding him to be a perfect pick for a good team composition.

  • 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 Starfire Character DLC for Injustice 2 Released

    starfire injustice 2 DLCA brand new character for Injustice 2 has finally made its way into the game. The new character is called Starfire and is based on the DC character of the same name.

    Starfire is a character from the Teen Titans universe, so it's interesting to see her make her way into a brutal 3D fighting game.

    In Injustice 2, Starfire is grown up and ready to beat any opponents that challenge her.

    Starfire is designed to be a character suitable for beginner players. Her move set is very simple when compared to other Injustice 2 characters, which should make it easier for newer players to master her.

    Starfire will be available for free to anybody that owns the Injustice 2 Deluxe or Ultimate editions. Alternatively, if you own Fighter Pack 1, you'll also have access to Starfire. If you have neither of the things above, you'll have to purchase Starfire separately.

    There are a number of shaders available for Starfire, including one that makes her look like her sister, Blackfire.

    Starfire is marked as the third and final fighter for Fighter Pack 1. Soon, Netherrealm will announce all three characters for Fighter Pack 2. According to Netherrealm’s Ed Boon, players will be very excited to see the three characters in Fighter Pack 2, and the last one should have a big 'wow' factor amongst Injustice and DC fans across the globe.

    Will you be playing Starfire at all now that she's available to play in Injustice 2?

  • New Summer Overwatch Skins Released

    summer overwatch skins 2017The new Overwatch Summer 2017 season has begun, and it has brought a number of summer themed skins to the game. These new skins are available in the game right now, alongside some other summer themed content.

    The new Summer Overwatch 2017 skins are perhaps the most colorful skins yet. Soldier: 76 is the first on the list to receive a new summer skin; he's got a red Hawaiian shirt on and a new 'A-Salt' Rifle for his primary weapon.

    Mercy has been transformed into a Greek goddess with her new 'Nike goddess' skin. Reaper is ready to hit some sick flips in his new BMX biker themed skin. Next up in the list is Widowmaker, who's received a classy bikini skin.

    Sombra is getting a summer snorkeling outfit. Junkrat has been given a Cricket suit, and McCree is given a lifeguard outfit.

    The new Summer Skins and Summer features are available right now. They'll remain in the game until August 29.

    You'll also be able to use this month as a chance to get the skins that were released for Overwatch last Summer. The skins from last year are also now available at a reduced price, so make sure to jump on that deal to get cheaper skins for Lucio, Tracer and more.

    If the Overwatch 2017 Summer season isn't exciting enough, Lucioball has also made a return. If you want a break from ranked play on Overwatch, Lucioball is the perfect place to do it. This game mode is without a doubt one of the most fun game modes to make its way into Overwatch so far.

  • New Injustice 2 Update Brings Superman Premier Skin

    injustice 2 superman premier skinA brand new update for Injustice 2 has landed and it brings a new Superman skin into the game.

    The new Superman skin is called the Bizarro Superman and it is a premier skin.

    The trademark feature of the Bizarro Superman skin is the reversed 'S' on his chest. The character also looks zombified in many ways and has bright blue laser eyes. You can see an example of the skin's appearance in the image above.

    Some of the moves on the new Bizarro Superman skin have changed when compared to the standard Superman. For example, one move will now burn opponents instead of freezing them. His laser beam attack now produces icy, cold damage instead of red, hot solar damage.

    The Super ability of the Bizarro Superman skin remains the same as the standard Superman, but there are a number of other small changes to some other skills that are available to both Superman and Bizarro Superman.

    The Bizarro Superman also has new voice lines. The lines include things like "You Bizarro new best friend," "Bizarro need not worst friend," and "Why am you so polite!?"

    While Bizarro Superman's ability to speak may not be the best, his ability to pummel enemies is certainly up with the best.

    The new Bizarro Superman skin was introduced in an update that predates the upcoming new character DLC, which will introduce Starfire to Injustice 2.

  • New Street Fighter V DLC Character Revealed

    new street fighter dlc abigailThe next DLC character for Street Fighter V has now been revealed. Learn more about the new character coming to SFV in this article.

    The new character coming to Street Fighter V as part of a new DLC pack is Abigail.

    Abigail is a bulky character that was first introduced to Street Fighter players back in 1989 in Final Fight, an arcade title set in the same universe as the Street Fighter franchise.

    Despite appearing such a long time ago, Abigail has not been in a Street Fighter game since. In that regards, Abigail is essentially a new character to make their way into SFV.

    In Final Fight, Abigail's fighting style focuses on brute force and heavy-handed attacks, as opposed to finesse and well-timed punches. If players leave their guard down, Abigail will be able to pick up his opponents and throw them around like toys.

    It looks as if Abigail will be more balanced out in Street Fighter V - this means he'll have a little more mobility than other bulky fighters, such as Hugo.

    If you already have the Street Fighter V Season 2 character pass, you'll be able to pick up Abigail for free. If you don't have the pass, you'll be able to purchase him separately. So far, a price tag hasn't been announced.

    Abigail will be introduced to Street Fighter V on July 25, alongside two new retro costumes and a brand new stage called Suzaku Castle.

  • New ZeRo Smash Bros 4 Tier List

    zero smash bros tier list 2017After recent events, ZeRo has built a new tier list for Super Smash Bros 4. The list includes each of the SSMB4 characters, besides the Miis, and has listed each one based on their performance in competitive events.

    Whether you play competitively or simply want to know which characters to pick to give yourself a better chance at beating your friend when they come round to play, this new tier list is worth taking a look at.

    Before we share the entire Smash Bros 4 tier list, let's first take a look at the top 10 picks from ZeRo. The top ten characters in ZeRo's tier list have been showcased below:

    • 10: Mario
    • 9: MarchCina
    • 8: Fox
    • 7: Sonic
    • 6: ZSS
    • 5: Diddy Kong
    • 4: Sheik
    • 3: Rosalina
    • 2: Cloud
    • 1: Bayonetta

    Bayonetta was an interesting choice for number 1, especially considering that not a single Bayonetta player has won a major tournament with that character.

    As ZeRo is a Diddy Kong player himself, it's odd to see Diddy Kong so high up in the list. Many other tier lists would put Diddy Kong in the top 3, without a doubt.

    The rest of the choices for the top 10 in this tier list is something that the majority of the community can agree upon. The remaining 42 characters in this list are in-line with what the rest of the Smash bros 4 scene would say, too, although there are a few characters that should arguably be higher or lower.

    Check out the full list in the featured image above.
