• New GTA Online Content Now Released

    new gta online contentThe latest Smuggler's Run update for GTA Online has now been out for just over a week. While the bulk of it, including a new adversary mode, and a number of new jets and planes have already been released, Rockstar has slowly trickled out more content over the past 10 days.

    This week, the new Motor Wars adversary mode will now offer players double RP and double cash. The game mode is a play on the popular battle royale mode seen in games like Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.

    In Motor Wars, players will drop from the sky and must find a weaponized vehicle spawn as quickly as possible. It's essentially battle royale but with vehicles.

    A new T-shirt, the white Shrewsbury logo tee has also been given to players for free, and players can currently get 25% off all vehicle armor. This includes armor for the new air vehicles.

    Both the Pegassi Reaper and the Progen Itali GTB are also 25% off for a limited time.

    A new plane has also been added as part of an expansion to the Smuggler's Run update, and a new Premium Race has been added.

    This week, the Premium Race for GTA Online is Criss Cross. This particular race forces players to drive in the Ruiner 2000. As always, this race will give players triple RP and a larger monetary reward is given out to those that finish in the top 3 spot. The new time trial event is Route 68 - players can get more money and RP for completing the time trial in the set time limit.

  • 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.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Launches with 10 Maps, 20 Operators

    rainbow six siege launches


    Rainbow Six Siege has finally come out of open beta and has launched officially on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The new Rainbow Six title focuses on online multiplayer gameplay and includes a number of different operators that players can unlock and choose between.

    During the betas, the amount of operators and maps available was limited. Now that Rainbow Six Siege has reached full release, we can talk about all of the operators and maps that are available at launch.

    It has been revealed the Ubisoft has loaded Rainbow Six Siege with 20 operators and 10 different maps at launch. All of the operators have been seen in previous betas, although this is the first time they've all been unlockable together. There are a lot of maps in this beta that have never been seen before.

    On top of the launch content, Ubisoft has listed their dedication to supporting Rainbow Six Siege after launch. Interestingly, a large team of 80 developers will be working on post launch content for Siege to ensure that the game has a long life span. During the first year of post launch content, we'll see eight new operators, four new maps and new primary and secondary weapons. New game modes and cosmetic items are also planned for post launch content.

    Rainbow Six Siege does have a season pass but the operators, and most likely the maps, will be available for free. When it concerns the operators, each new OP will cost 25,000 renown or a certain amount of R6 credits, which is a microtransaction system in Siege.
