1. Black Ops 4 Blackout will have Respawning for a Short Time
Treyarch is introducing the ability to respawn to Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode starting this week. Seeing as respawning seems to pretty directly contradict the entire purpose of a battle royale mode, there must be a reason for this change. Most likely, this is meant to appease new players who are trying the game during it’s free to play week; new players will get to learn the game faster if they can respawn a few times during a game. Players can only respawn after they’ve collapsed if they still have at least one team member alive. This will last until January 30th.
 
2. Upcoming Sea of Thieves Update Will Require a Complete Reinstall
 
The studio that makes Sea of Thieves has announced that an upcoming update will require players to fully reinstall the game. Rare explained that this is necessary to prevent the game from bloating in size with each coming update. The new download will be almost half the size of the game’s original file, which Sea of Thieves players should be happy to hear. The update that will require you to uninstall and reinstall Sea of Thieves comes out on February 6th.
 
3. Brawlhalla to Invest $500k Into Esports this Year
 
The developers of Brawlhalla just announced the game’s fourth year of esports competitions will include the game’s biggest prize pools yet. Year Four will include total prizes of $500k USD spread across multiple in-person and online events. Brawlhalla has been an exceptionally popular fighting game on both PlayStation 4 and Steam, in large part due to it being free to play.
 
4. Bethesda has Started Banning Fallout 76 Players over Exploits
 
Sometime last week, a Fallout 76 player discovered a secret room in the game. This room was meant to be closed off to the general playerbase and only accessible to the game’s developers. Inside the room there were tons of items that aren’t meant to be in the game yet. Bethesda has started suspending the accounts that entered the room, but they aren’t suspending accounts that have had the improperly-obtained items traded to them. Man, this game’s a mess.
 
5. Mixer Adds Premium Currency to Support Streamers
 
Mixer is Microsoft’s streaming platform meant to rival Twitch. Previously you could support Mixer streamers by donating them Sparks, which viewers generated passively as they watched streams. As you donated Sparks to streamers, they would attain different milestones which had cash rewards. Mixer has now introduced Embers; Embers are different from Sparks in that they translate directly to cash, without the milestone aspect.

1. EA Cancels Open-World Star Wars Game
Back in 2017, EA announced they were working on an open-world Star Wars game. The game was originally a project from Visceral Games that was not going to be open-world, but Visceral Games shutdown and EA inherited the project. EA decided to begin the project anew and felt an open-world game would have the most success. Now, we have received the unfortunate news that EA has canceled the project. It is rumored that EA canceled the open-world project in favor of a different, smaller Star Wars game they will be able to bring to market sooner.
 
2. Black Ops 4 Zombies gets Double XP to Celebrate 115 Day
 
Elemental 115 is significant to the Call of Duty Zombies lore, so Treyarch decided to celebrate 115 Day (January 15th) with a few days of doubled XP for Zombies. Until Friday the 18th you’ll receive double XP and double weapon XP, plus you’ll even get double Nebulium Plasma. PlayStation 4 players can also experience a new mode called Gauntlet; in Gauntlet there are 30 rounds, each with a different challenge. Failing a round gives your team a strike, and three strikes mean you’re out.
 
3. The Division 2 Private Beta Dates Announced
 
Ubisoft has revealed the private beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will begin on February 7th. The beta will only run for a few days, ending on the 10th. Players can gain access to the private beta by pre-ordering The Division 2 or by registering on the game’s website, however those spots are limited. Ubisoft also released a new story trailer today, exploring the game’s Washington DC setting a bit more.
 
4. Elder Scrolls Online Expansion ‘Elsweyr’ Announced
 
Elder Scrolls Online’s next major expansion is titled Elsweyr, and will see players journeying to the land of the Khajiit. The expansion will be similar in size to last year’s Summerset expansion, and will tell a roughly thirty-hour long story over the course of the next year. Players will help the Khajiit defend their homeland against invading Imperials and dragons. Elsweyr is bringing dragons to Elder Scrolls Online for the first time, and Bethesda has promised these dragons will be more difficult to defeat than the ones we remember from Skyrim.
 
5. Black Desert Online’s 50-player Battle Royale Launches Today
 
Black Desert Online is an MMO game with many complex in-game systems that collectively provide players with an incredibly deep play experience. Today, BDO has sunk to the level all games apparently have sunk to; today, BDO introduced a battle royale mode. The Shadow Arena is still just an early access version, but players can test out the 50 player battle royale mode. Players will start as a spirit but can become one of the game’s classes as the battle progresses.

1. A Massive Icy Orb Appears in Fortnite, Starting Season 8 Buildup
Buckle up buckaroos, it’s time for the wild ride that is Fortnite’s build up to Season 8. Last year, it was a purple cube. This year, it is an icy blue orb floating over the castle at Polar Peak. There is also the iceberg near Happy Hamlet with a universal health bar. This health bar depletes for everyone on all servers whenever anyone hits it with a pickaxe. At the current rate, we will find out what is inside the orb in just a couple short hours.
 
2. Valve’s Artifact has lost 97% of Playerbase in 2 Months
 
To say Artifact is struggling would be an understatement. The game was incredibly hyped before it released, as it is a digital card game from a partnership between the creator of Magic: the Gathering and one of the biggest gaming companies in history. However, almost immediately after release we saw issues with Artifact. The game is exceedingly complex to play or watch and has a frustrating economical model. Valve certainly hasn’t given up on Artifact yet, but it sure seems like the gaming community at large has.
 
3. Black Ops 4 Will Start a Free Trial of Blackout This Week
 
Starting this Thursday, Blackout will be free to play for one week. Activision and Treyarch announced the free trial for Blackout will be available on all platforms. This is just speculation, but this could be a trial run to see if it is worth it for Blackout to be permanently free to play. This would enable them to compete with Fortnite for a larger share of the battle royale playerbase, as Fortnite is notably free to play.
 
4. Riot Games Publishes New Company Values
 
Riot Games, the creator of Legend of Legends, came under fire a few months ago due to allegations of a sexist and toxic workplace. Several previous employees came out with some concerning stories about their experience working at Riot Games. The company promised to improve and today they posted a new set of company values. Included in the new values, Riot promises they will cultivate a fair work environment and have their leaders embody and promote the company’s values. Only time will tell whether Riot Games, and specifically the higher up employees who seemed to be the root of the company’s problems, can actually adhere to the new values.
 
5. KFC is Hosting a Blackout Tournament
 
Fast food restaurant KFC announced they are hosting a Blackout tournament featuring 16 content creators and a prize pool of $63,700. There is also a ‘KFC Black Card’ up for grabs, which will allow whoever wins it to eat for free at KFC every day. The event is going to start on January 17th with more information to revealed between now and then.

1. Glider Redeploy Returns to Fortnite, with a Twist
Glider redeploy in Fortnite enabled players to pull out their glider if they fell from almost any height. It was a controversial feature, as it enabled players to take certain risks they could not normally take. Epic Games removed the feature after a short test period, but it is now returning with a twist. Glider redeploy is coming back, but as an item; players will be able to loot Gliders around the map, similar to how they could loot Jetpacks or Balloons, and Gliders will have a certain number of charges.
 
2. Rocket League Finally Gets Full Cross-Platform Play
 
With the help and cooperation of PlayStation, Rocket league is now to the second game to enter the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program. Now, players on all the major systems can get randomly matched against one another. Cross-platform parties, on the other hand, are still not available. You can play private matches with and against friends on other platforms and full cross-platform parties are coming “soon.” Personally, playing against people on other consoles is just step one. Hopefully cross-platform parties come sooner rather than later.
 
3. Battlefield 5 Trailer Shows off Lightning Strikes Update
 
DICE released a trailer this morning showing off the Lightning Strikes update, which releases later this week on the 17th. Lightning Strikes focuses on tanks, vehicle warfare, and big explosions which makes for an exciting trailer. Lightning Strikes introduces new weapons, new vehicles, and some game modes. Rush returns, alongside a new co-op mode called Combined Arms. Lightning Strikes is the 2nd of 3 chapters in the Tides of War content series. The third chapter, which is set to release in March, will finally introduce a battle royale mode to Battlefield 5.
 
4. Datamine Reveals Potential SNES Games Coming to the Switch
 
An alleged data mine has potentially revealed an impressive list of SNES games that may be making their way to the Nintendo Switch Online store soon. The list of games includes: Super Mario Kart, Super Soccer, The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Yoshi’s Island, Star Fox, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and more. There are already NES games available on the Switch Online store, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility for SNES games to become available as well. Fingers crossed for these rumors to be true!

Happy Friday New Years Revomootions! In this week's episode of Moot Points with Dylan and Brian, the guys make some predictions about the next year in gaming. What will be the biggest game of the year? Will Fortnite stay the most popular game in the world? Check out the episode to see the guaranteed correct answers to these questions and more!
 
2. Fortnite is Fixing its Uneven Ground Problem
 
One of the most annoying things in Fortnite is getting fixed next week. Any experienced Fortnite player can recall a time when they died because their wall built in the ground instead of at a normal level to protect themselves. A new update will enable players to automatically build two vertical walls when the lower wall is mostly underground. The ‘underground’ wall will also cost no materials, which is a nice touch. Did the best game in the world just get better?
 
3. Amazon is Apparently Developing a Game Streaming Service
 
Rumors are starting to swirl about Amazon starting their own game streaming service, to rival Microsoft’s and Google’s programs. Game streaming will enable you to play games that are running on a computer other than your own. Google’s Project Stream had a beta where testers got to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Google Chrome; while it was undoubtedly sweet, there were graphical and framerate issues. Amazon’s project could be out as early as next year.
 
4. Riot is Letting League of Legends Players Keep Free Skins
 
An error in the League of Legends store temporarily allowed players to get skins effectively for free, and while Riot has now fixed the error, they are letting players keep the skins they got for free. Skin capsules, which usually cost 750 Riot points, were available for 1 blue essence yesterday. Riot points are the game’s premium currency while blue essence is a free currency given out in excess to players. Some members of the community are annoyed with Riot’s lack of action on the matter, but other community members are presumably happy with all of their new skins.
 
5. Kingdom Hearts III Update Schedule Revealed
 
A significant portion of Kingdom Hearts III leaked a few weeks ago, much to the dismay of the general fanbase. The game’s director assured fans that nothing major was included in the videos, but the studio is still taking precautions to prevent spoilers. The day after the game releases, an update will include an Epilogue to be viewed after players complete the main story. The next day, a “Secret” video will be added for players who have met certain criteria. These measures are being taken to prevent players from seeing any more spoilers before they get a chance to experience the game for themselves. Kingdom Hearts III releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29th.

1. Bungie Splits from Activision, Takes Destiny with Them
Bungie has announced that it is splitting with Activision, bringing an early end to their ten year publishing partnership surrounding the Destiny franchise. Bungie will acquire full rights and publish all future content independently. Destiny 2 will remain on BattleNet for PC players following the departure.
 
2. PUBG Bans a Dozen Pros and 30,000 other Players for Cheating
 
Last month, PUBG conducted a global investigation of all currently active pro PUBG players to see if any of them were cheating. Turns out, a handful were. PUBG just discovered a very hard to detect cheat that scanned data being sent to the servers, instead of game files themselves, which enabled the cheater to effectively have radar vision. PUBG caught and suspended 10 players for cheating and 2 more players who knew their teammates were cheating but said nothing. These players have been banned for 3 years and future pro competitors will be screened more thoroughly moving forward.
 
3. Red Dead Online gets a more Genuine Battle Royale Mode
 
Rockstar has said they will adapt Red Dead Online to match what the playerbase wants to see, and apparently the players want to see more battle royale. A new game mode called Gun Rush came to Red Dead Online today which is truer to the usual Battle Royale style than the Make It Count game mode currently in RDO. In Gun Rush, up to 32 players will gather weapons and ammo for a fight to death in an ever-shrinking play area.
 
4. The Better Business Bureau Gives Epic Games an F
 
Epic Games just received an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, supposedly for not responding to customer complaints. The majority of the complaints have to do with customer service and ignoring refund requests. It should be HEAVILY EMPHASIZED that the Better Business Bureau is a private organization, not a government entity, and there is an EXTREME CORRELATION between companies that pay them money and companies that get good ratings. Have you ever had to interact with Epic Games customer support staff? If so, do you feel this rating is fair?
 
5. Stan Lee Tribute Added to World of Warcraft
 
Azeroth’s biggest cities have always been full of fun Easter eggs for the most diligent World of Warcraft players. It was one of these players who noticed a new NPC (Non-Player Character) walking the halls of Stormwind Keep. The character is named ‘Stanley’ and he looks exactly like the late Stan Lee, of comic book fame. If looking like Stan Lee isn’t enough to confirm this is a direct tribute, Stanley actually shouts Excelsior! as he walks around. Nice touch, Blizzard.
 
6. Old School Runescape gets a New Region in Today’s Update
 
In what is the first big update since the game went multiplatform late last year, Old School Runescape got a new region today. The Kebos Lowlands includes a new town called Brimstome, a new monster in the form of a hydra, a new slayer dungeon. There is even a new farming guild. Jagex has called this update the game’s most diverse since Old School Runescape launched in 2013.

1. Ubisoft Foregoing Steam, Selling The Division 2 on Epic Games Store
Ubisoft and Epic Games have announced a partnership deal that will see the PC version of The Division 2 selling on the Epic Games store. The Epic Games store may pose the first real threat to Steam, which has has effectively been the only online marketplace for digital games for some time now. Epic only takes 12% of revenue, which is significantly lower than the 30% Steam takes. In the announcement, Ubisoft announced they will release a few more select titles on the Epic Games store over the course of 2019.
 
2. Final Fantasy Digital Card Coming to PC, in Japan at Least
 
Square Enix has revealed a digital card game inspired by Final Fantasy, due to start a beta test in Japan this month. There has been no word yet if the game will come to other regions for beta testing or upon release. The game has players compete in turn-based battles where you place characters and monsters on a grid-like board.
 
3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gets Level Scaling and More
 
Ubisoft has been grinding away to bring new content to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s not all about content though, as the game is getting expanded features as well. Perhaps the most exciting new feature is the option to choose how your enemies scale to your level. Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to adjust enemy scaling so you can play the game at the exact difficulty you desire. There is also a litany of new quests coming to the game this month. Check the article below to read more about how Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is expanding this month.

The Australian Open is one of the four biggest tennis tournaments of the year, but this year it won’t be all about tennis. Epic Games has announced they will be hosting a tournament called the Summer Smash at the event, which boasts a prize pool of $355 thousand USD. There will be a solo tournament and a pro-am duos tournament, open to Australia and New Zealand residents over 16 years old. The tournaments will take place during the final weekend of the Australian Open, January 26-27. The ProAm will feature popular streamers from the region, including Loserfruit, LazarBeam, and Muselk.
 
5. Bungie is Unlocking the Bergusia Forge; Destiny 2 Puzzle Still Unsolved
 
The Bergusia Forge is the final piece of content related to the Black Armory, but before Bungie opened it to Annual Pass holders they had a puzzle the community had to solve. Well, the puzzle was too hard; so hard in fact that no one has solved it yet. Bungie released an announcement this morning stating they don’t want to withhold the content any longer, so the Bergusia Forge is now available. For you maniacs that still want to solve the puzzle, you’ll unlock a unique emblem and ghost for your efforts.

1. Fortnite Introduces Silenced Sniper Rifle, Brings Back Dual Pistols
Epic quietly (see what we did there) released a content update last night that introduced a new silenced sniper rifle to their battle royale mode. The same update has also brought back the popular dual pistols, affectionately nicknamed ‘dualies,’ and removed all versions of the burst rifle except for the rare and legendary rarities. Finally, the content update has heavily nerfed the X-4 Stormwing plane. Planes will now spawn less often and take more damage when they run into structures.
 
2. Laser Cannons Come to GTA Online in New Update
 
If you were struggling to find a weapon with adequate firepower in GTA Online, struggle no more; the Unholy Hellbringer and Widowmaker guns are both now available to purchase at an Ammu-Nation near you. If you need to earn some cash to purchase either of these bad boys, you can earn double cash and RP rewards from any of the Arena War game modes for the next week.

The first Overwatch patch of the new year has come to game’s PTR servers. The first change comes to armor, which will only reduce damage by 3 instead of reducing it by 5. Next, Brigitte is being nerfed. Her Rally ability now has a maximum duration of 30 seconds. D.Va’s defense matrix has had its cooldown increased from 1 second to 2 seconds. And finally, Reaper is getting buffed, as his life steal is getting increased from 30% to 50% of damage dealt.
 
4. Tropico 6 has been Delayed Until March
 
After a closed beta run toward the end of 2018, the studio behind Tropico 6 has decided to delay the game’s release by a couple months. The extra time will give the developers an opportunity to implement community feedback in response to the beta. Specifically, they will polish pathfinding, multiplayer, and how the game simulations both the Tropicans and the economy. Due to the delay, if you have preordered the game or do so before January 10th, you will receive Tropico 6’s first DLC for free.
 
5. Earn Ana Bastet Cosmetics by Winning Games and Watching Streams
 
Yesterday, Blizzard released a short story called Bastet that focused on Soldier 76 and Ana. In the story, Ana spent some time as Bastet, the protector of Cairo.

Blizzard released a new Overwatch short story called Bastet today, which focuses on a conversation between Soldier 76 and Ana. During their conversation, it is revealed that Soldier 76 used to be in a relationship with a man named Vincent, whom he had to leave behind due to his duties. Soldier 76 is the second Overwatch hero to be LGBTQ, as an animated comic from 2016 revealed Tracer has a girlfriend named Emily.
 
2. 14 Days of Fortnite Challenges are Coming Back
 
Epic Games announced over the weekend they will be bringing back 14 Days of Fortnite after the event’s controversial end last week. 14 Days of Fortnite was an event that providing daily challenges and rewards, but some players missed out on completing the challenges due to a miscommunication from Epic. The challenges will be available again for about a week, although progress on partially completed challenges has unfortunately been reset. As before, anyone who completes just one challenge will unlock the Equalizer Glider.
 
3. Stardew Valley now has a Battle Royale Mod
 
The popular game Stardew Valley got multiplayer just last year. Now, there’s a downloadable mod called Battle Royalley that enables players to fight to be the last farmer standing. The game mode supports up to 100 players, although you may struggle to find that many for a match. Just like any other battle royale, players start spread around the map and a safe zone shrinks as the game progresses. You can build fences, chop trees, and even ride horses in the game mode. If you get a chance to play, we’d love to hear your thoughts on Battle Royalley!

Bowsette came into existence when it was revealed that a new item existed in the upcoming Super Mario Bros game called the Super Crown. The Super Crown is used by Toadette and turns her into Peachette. Fans speculated that the crown could then combine any character with Peach, even Bowser. Bowsette fan art took the internet by storm for a few days, but now an item description for the Super Crown has been posted by Nintendo that clarifies the crown can only be used by Toadette. Oh well.
 
2. Hitman: Blood Money and Absolution Remasters Releasing Next Week
 
IO Interactive announced this morning the remastered versions of Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution will launch January 11th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

There is also a digital-only package called the Hitman HD Enhanced Collection, that will cost $60 and presumably include the remastered versions of both games.
 
3. Batalj Beta Extended and Open to All
 
Batalj is a 1v1 strategy game that we had not heard of before today, but it has been in closed beta for about a month now. Although the beta was supposed to end with the new year, the developers instead announced they’re extending it until January and are making beta keys easily accessible. The game offers turn based combat, but with the unique twist where turns resolve simultaneously. If you want to try the game for yourself, check the article below to see how you can get yourself a beta key.
 
4. Bethesda’s Lawsuit against Westworld Mobile Game has been Resolved
 
A few months back, Bethesda sued Warner Bros. over an alleged copyright violation. Bethesda claimed a Westword mobile game was a ripoff of their own Fallout Shelter mobile game. Now, Bethesda has released a very brief statement saying the two parties reached an “amicable” resolution, but provided no further details. The Westworld mobile game is free to play and remains available on both iOS and Android phones.
 
5. New Pokemon Movie may be a Remake of the Original Movie
 
Fans are speculating the upcoming Pokemon movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, will be a CGI remake of the original Pokemon movie from 1998. After a new trailer released, some believe the theory to be even more likely. The new trailer shows a clip that is entirely CGI, which has also led some to speculate the new movie will be entirely CGI. Clearly, not much is known about the movie that will release later this year. What would you rather see? An entirely new story or a remake of the classic movie from almost 20 years ago.

1. Old Hearthstone Designers Announce They’re Making a Marvel Game
Last year, Ben Brode and a few of his colleagues left Blizzard to found their own indie studio named Second Dinner. Brode had been the director and face of Hearthstone for several years, so his departure was big news in and of itself. The new studio has now announced their first game will be set in the Marvel universe. The announcement also reveals they have accepted an investment from the Chinese company NetEase to the tune of $30 million. We still don’t know what genre of game will be made, but hopefully that will be revealed soon.
 
2. CS:GO had a Great Month after Going Free to Play
 
On December 7th, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive made the transition from a paid game to a free-to-play one. On the same day, Valve also added a battle royale mode to the game called Danger Zone. Looking at some of the figures for the game since then suggests the move was worth it, at least in the short term. Twice as many Steam users played CS:GO in December compared to the previous month. CS:GO has a valuable loot box system so Valve could still make remarkable profits off the game despite it being free to play.
 
3. Spooky Gifs from Infinity Ward on Twitter Hint at a new Call of Duty Game
 
The communications manager for Infinity Ward has been posting a spooky gif on their twitter account almost daily since the end of November, but it was just noticed by the internet at large recently. The gifs include subjects like ghosts, demons, ghouls, and more. While some are guessing this is hinting at a sequel to Call of Duty: Ghosts, that may not be the most likely. For one, Ghosts didn’t have demons or ghouls. For two, it was a pretty crappy game to be honest and doesn’t particularly warrant a sequel. Hopefully we will get some more concrete hints soon enough.
 
4. 14 Days of Fortnite Ends with Confusion
 
14 Days of Fortnite was a series of daily challenges that spanned two weeks. Players who completed all of the challenges by the end of the two weeks were meant to get a unique prize, the Equalizer Glider. Unfortunately, a bit of poor communication from Epic Games meant some players thought they would have a couple extra days to complete all of their challenges. To make it up to those specific players, Epic announced they will be giving the Equalizer Glider to all players who completed at least one of the 14 challenges.
 
5. Blizzard Punishes 18,000 Overwatch Accounts in South Korea for Toxicity
 
Blizzard has struggled over recent years to keep toxicity out of Overwatch matches. In fact, reducing toxicity was one of the studio’s main goals for the popular game last year. Blizzard overhauled the game’s report feature, began tracking down bad behavior outside of the game, and added social features to promote positive behaviors. While these measures probably helped to some degree, they haven’t fixed the problem. Yesterday, Blizzard’s South Korean office started off the new year by banning 18,188 accounts for toxic behavior.

Town of Salem is a fun online game that tests your abilities to lie and detect when others are lying. Recently, the developers of the game suffered a massive data breach that apparently compromised the personal information of more than 7.6 million players. The hacked information includes usernames, emails, passwords, IP addresses, game activity, and payment information.

2. Fallout 76 has been Nuke-Free all Year
 
An unexpected bug in Fallout 76 has left players unable to launch nukes since the new year started. While a New Year’s armistice sounds like a possible event, Bethesda has confirmed this short-term peace was entirely unplanned. It seems Fallout 76 in 2019 is picking up exactly where Fallout 76 in 2018 left off. Confusing headlines, poor communication from Bethesda, and a dwindling player base.
 
3. Get a Free Indie Game Every Day in 2019
 
Alright, now this is really cool. An indie game developer named Rami Ismail has announced a new game launcher that will give you a free, small game every day for all of 2019. The games will only take about five minutes to play through and will range in genre, from puzzlers to platformers. The launcher will download one game at midnight GMT which will only be available to play for 24 hours. Check the article below for more information and a link to download the game launcher, called Meditations.
 
4. Activision Blizzard Fires Their CFO
 
Activision Blizzard announced this week they are firing their chief financial officer Spencer Neumann, who appears to be headed to work at Netflix. While Activision Blizzard has certainly had a bumpy year, with declining numbers almost across the board, they said in the announcement that the firing is unrelated to the company’s finances over the last year.
 
5. Xbox Game Pass for January has Some Sweet Games
 
Xbox Game Pass will be bringing some excellent games to Xbox players over the course of January. On January 3rd you’ll be able to play Ark: Survival Evolved and Life is Strange 2: Part 1. If you haven’t played Life is Strange before, you can play both the first game and the prequel game through Xbox Game Pass as well. Just Cause 3 is the other big headline game, which will be available on January 10th. Check the article below to see the other games that are included in this month’s Xbox Game Pass lineup.

Happy last day of 2018! We got some sweet New Years items on sale until Midnight tonight in the Moot Coin Shop, so be sure to click the link at the bottom of the post to swag out your profile! Also, enjoy this short montage that captures some of the best moments from Moot Points over the last year!
 
2. Fortnite’s New Years Event has Started
 
Players around the world were surprised early this morning when a giant disco ball appeared in the sky inside Fortnite. Until it is 2019 for all time zones, every hour on the hour the giant disco ball will appear and countdown to the new year. Players are forced to dance when the countdown hits zero, which should enable everyone to safely enjoy the fireworks. Happy New Year Fortnite fans and everyone on Moot!
 
3. Soulja Boy has Stopped Selling his Console Due to a Lawsuit
 
If you missed what may have been gaming’s most confusing headline of the year, let us catch you up. Rapper Soulja Boy announced a few weeks ago he was selling his personally branded gaming consoles on his website, but they looked suspiciously like Nintendo-knockoff consoles you can buy online. They also included games that Soulja Boy did not have permission to sell. The consoles are now unavailable, as a lawsuit from Nintendo is pending.
 
4. Fortnite’s new Boombox is Quite Annoying
 
Epic Games introduced the Boombox to Fortnite’s battle royale mode over the weekend and it has caused a bit of a controversy. The Boombox emits pulse waves that rapidly destroy structures they make contact with. A part of the controversy regarding the Boombox is the timing; there was a big tournament this weekend and the Boombox was added to the game without any time for players to prepare. What do you all think of the Boombox?

Happy Friday Mootheads! In this week's episode of Moot Points with Dylan & Brian we talk about the Moot Game Awards, which is an event we're running on our service where you can win some DOPE PRIZES! We're giving away FIFTEEN consoles (of your choice) plus one game to come with it. It is completely free to enter! Watch the video or click the link at the bottom of this post to learn more about the event.
2. Valve Changes Artifact Balance Philosophy, Nerfs Expensive Cards
 
Valve previously stated they would never tweak cards aside from some rare exceptions, but they’ve changed their stance. An update that came out yesterday changed eight cards, including some of the most prominent ones. Axe, the game’s most expensive card, has been nerfed slightly. If you bought any of the cards in Artifact that have been nerfed, you can sell it back to valve for its peak price 24 hours before the nerf announcement. Kind of neat. Do you think this shift in philosophy will help Artifact recover some of its playerbase?
 
3. Major Hearthstone Nerfs Hopefully Shake Things Up
 
Earlier this week Blizzard revealed sweeping nerfs to Hearthstone that may qualify as the biggest balance update the game has ever seen. Nerfs to iconic, deck-defining cards for the Druid, Rogue, Paladin, and Shaman classes are sure to result in massive metagame shifts. Us Arena players haven’t been left out of the fun either, as the menace of Arena known as Mind Control Tech is no longer available to draft. Huzzah!
 
4. Darksiders 3 Patch makes Combat Like the Previous Games
 
Darksiders 3 has generally gone over well with fans of the series, but one of the biggest complaints is how different the game’s combat felt from compared to the first two Darksiders games. Well, the game’s developers heard that feedback and have introduced a new option called ‘classic combat.’ This will feel much more like the original style of combat we grew to know and love with Darksiders 1 and 2. There are some other small updates in the patch, like a few new checkpoints, but not much more.

1. Islands of Nyne Ceases Development, Goes Free to Play
The fast-paced battle royale game Islands of Nyne will stop development almost immediately, according to a Steam Community post from the game’s dev team. In the announcement, it was also revealed the game is going to become free to play and servers will stay up in the future so fans of the game may have a chance to keep playing it. The final update to the game will introduce a credits screen to the main menu and add the ability for players to host their own servers. Did you like Islands of Nyne? Have you ever heard of it? Could be a great time to get into it, seeing as it is now free!
 
2. First Player Creation Makes its way onto Fortnite’s Block
 
Kanncitak is the Fortnite player who will be remembered (or more likely, immediately forgotten) as the first to have their creation featured on The Block. Grimy Greens factory is now live in game, meaning players can drop into a game of Fortnite battle royale and experience Kanncitak’s custom design first hand. The Block has replaced Risky Reels and will continue to feature different player creations.
 
3. Sam Raimi Suit Now Available in Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4
 
Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 is getting a new DLC tomorrow that will introduce three more suits, but an update this morning has added another suit. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man suit was highly requested and it is now available in game for free. The “Webbed Suit” is famously the suit Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker wore in the first Spider-Man movie he was in. The paid DLC Silver Lining releases tomorrow, rounding out the DLC pack The City That Never Sleeps.
 
4. ‘Harry Potter Wizards Unite’ is a New Mobile Game
 
A new teaser for Harry Potter Wizards Unite was just posted on YouTube this morning, showing some out of control Nimbus 2000 brooms flying down a highway. The game is a new mobile game from Niantic, the company that makes Pokemon Go. You can safely expect Wizards Unite to be an Augmented Reality game similar to Pokemon Go. While the specific details of the game are still unclear, you can expect the game to bring you outside to make sure muggles don’t learn about magic. You can also sign up for the beta now! There’s a link at the bottom of the attached article.
 
5. For Honor’s Assassin’s Creed Crossover Event is Live
 
For the Creed is a limited time event that will see Assassin’s Creed completely take over For Honor for the next couple of weeks. Until January 1st, For Honor will feature characters, costumes, music, and visual themes from throughout the Assassin’s Creed franchises history. Ezio Auditore and Cesare Borgia are Commanders, soldiers are dressed as Templars(Knights), Assassins(Samurai), or Pirates(Vikings). The three maps in the game even feature dozens of Assassin’s Creed Easter eggs. Finally, a new version of the Dominion game mode is live which features Ezio and Cesare facing off as Commanders.

The Daily Moot (12/19/18)

1. ‘Leaked’ Footage Possibly Shows Red Dead Redemption 2 Footage on PC
A short video showed up on YouTube recently that shows off a potential build of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. The video, which is only 25 seconds long, shows off the graphics setting menu for the game. There are standard PC options like screen type, resolution, refresh rate, and more. While it is exciting to see this kind of thing, the leak may not be real because it only shows menus, which would be the easiest thing to fake. Maybe Rockstar will come out with a statement on the leak, but we wouldn’t bet on it.
 
2. PUBG Winter Map ‘Vikendi’ Releases on PC and Mobile
 
Vikendi, PUBG’s snow map they revealed at The Game Awards, is now live for PC and mobile players. Vikendi is an attempt from PUBG Corp. to strike a balance between the style of their old maps and the recently released Sanhok map. Vikendi is larger than Sanhok, but players can still experience some of the fast paced, close quarter combat the small jungle map offered. Apparently, Vikendi will be available on consoles sometime next month.
 
3. Fortnite’s Official Merch Store Launched Today
 
Finally, there’s an official way to buy Fortnite themed merchanise. The Retail Row store, which you can access online, provides fans of Fortnite (or their parents) to purchase some sweet cosmetics. The pickings are a bit slim currently, but you can buy a Durr Burger Onesie for $70 USD. There is also a Skull Trooper Pullover Hoodie and a decent selection of graphic t-shirts. Unfortunately, the merch store is not in time for Christmas, as all items will ship sometime in late January.
 
4. For Honor and Assassin’s Creed Crossover Event may be Near
 
The For Honor Twitter account is teasing a crossover event with Assassin’s Creed that will be announced tomorrow. For Honor tweeted “nothing is true, everything is permitted” which is the Creed’s maxim, so we know something is coming from the two games. It makes sense, as both games are owned by Ubisoft and have done small scale crossovers before. The extent of the upcoming crossover is the only uncertainty at this point. Fans of the games should keep their eyes peeled tomorrow for a hopefully big announcement.
 
5. Fallout 76 will get a PvP Mode next Year
 
Alongside the last patch of 2018, Bethesda has revealed a few teasers of what to expect in Fallout 76 next year. Perhaps the most exciting is the promise of a new mode “without PvP restrictions.” Currently in Fallout 76 when you attack another player, they will take reduced damage until they choose to fight back. Doing away with this restriction would suggest either a full opt-in PvP mode, or maybe even true PvP servers. Either way, it is exciting to see Bethesda continue to invest in a game that clearly needs it.

1. Fortnite Patch 7.10 is Live, but no Driftboards
Despite a brief delay, Fortnite’s 7.10 patch is now live. Unfortunately, the patch does not include the promised Driftboard but we can expect that will be out soon enough. The update does bring some big changes though, as the map is more festive now and Stormwings have been nerfed. The planes now take more damage from flying into buildings and pilots will take more damage when a plane is destroyed. Also, 14 Days of Fortnite starts tomorrow. The event will bring fresh Limited Time Modes to the game each day for two weeks.
 
2. Alfonso Ribeiro is Suing Epic Games for Stealing the Carlton Dance
 
Alfonso Ribeiro played Carlton in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air series. In the show, his character had an iconic dance move that has made its way into Fortnite. Ribiero is now suing Epic Games for copying his dance, just weeks after rapper 2 Milly sued Epic for copying the Milly Rock. Ribero’s attorney claims Epic copied his dance without asking permission or offering compensation. It is unclear how far the case will go, as Ribiero does not currently have a copyright on the dance.
 
3. Legendary Pokemon Heatran Comes to Pokemon Go
 
Starting this afternoon, Legendary Pokemon Heatran will be available in Raid Battles in Pokemon Go. Players will have until 1 PM PST on January 15th to capture the Legendary Pokemon. Heatran is the third Legendary from Generation 4 to come to the popular mobile game. Today is also the beginning of Pokemon Go’s holiday event, which includes bonuses like double Stardust, double Candy, and free Incubators.
 
4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Sells 3 Million Copies in 11 Days
 
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been flying off the physical and digital shelves since it launched on December 7th. In fact, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was already the best pre-selling Nintendo Switch title, but it is now the fastest-selling Switch game after release as well. While these numbers speak to the popularity of the Super Smash Bros series, it also shows the growing popularity of the Nintendo Switch console in the US and abroad. Do you have a Switch? Do you want one? You could win one right now, in fact! Check out The Moot Game Awards linked at the bottom of this post!
 
5. Steam’s Winter Sale gets a Start Date
 
Steam sales are always a special time, but the winter one is particularly special. Something about the festive theme of it all, or maybe it’s all the Steam Gift Cards we get for Christmas, make it feel magical. The Steam Winter Sale will officially begin on December 20th. The same day also marks the start of the 2018 Steam Awards voting.

1. Epic Games adding a Driftboard to Fortnite
Apparently season 7 is the season of sweet new vehicles, as Epic Games just revealed another one they’ll be adding to their battle royale mode soon. The Driftboard is a single person vehicle that resembles a snowboard. The announcement text refers to as a ‘single player vehicle’ which suggests you won’t be able to have a friend ride along on your shoulders. Expect the Driftboard to come to the game this week with the 7.10 update.
 
2. Kingdom Hearts III Leaks Six Weeks Early
 
Copies of Kingdom Hearts III have leaked, with some people offering to sell a copy of the game for up to $100. While it is normal for some aspects of a game’s story to leak a few days before the game releases, the fact that Kingdom Hearts III leaked so far ahead of its release is concerning. The game’s director warned fans to watch out for spoilers, but he assured us that the ending of the game is not actually in the versions currently out. So while some of the game may be spoiled by the time we get to play it next year, hopefully we can stay blissfully unaware of the game’s ending until we get to experience it ourselves.
 
3. World of Warcraft’s Holiday Event is Underway
 
The Feast of Winter Veil has come to Azeroth, offering players a way to celebrate the holidays in game. Until January 2nd, players will notice the world is covered in seasonal decorations. You will also find holiday quests in Orgrimmar and Ironforge, as is tradition. Finally, there are seasonal gifts for players in game as well.
 
4. Battlefield V Undoing TTK Changes after Complaints
 
It’s nice to see a company admit they messed up. In this case, DICE implemented some changes to their game to extend the Time To Kill (TTK) to make a more new player friendly experience. However, many players felt they took it too far. DICE announced this morning they will be reverting the changes from last week’s patch. The TTK is an incredibly important aspect of any shooter game, so it will be interesting to see how DICE continues to try and balance it for an optimal play experience in Battlefield V.
 
5. Total Player Numbers for PS4 Games Revealed
 
Sony has offered PS4 owners a cool social media program called ‘My PS4 Life’ that allows them to see how they’ve spent their time. Some players discovered they could use the information from the videos, specifically how many users have earned a trophy, combined with the % of players who have that trophy to figure out exactly how many people have played each game. While the numbers may not be exact, they are still interested. Unsurprisingly, GTA V is at the top of the list with 51.7 million players. Check out all the numbers and see a more detailed explanation at the link below.

2. Fortnite’s Infinity Blade has Been Vaulted!
 
Players, Christmas came early! Epic Games took to Twitter this morning to announce they have vaulted the controversial Infinity Blade. In an earlier update, Epic Games announced they were nerfing the Infinity Blade by making it so the weapon could no longer be used to harvest resources. The community was unhappy with this, and Epic Games later announced they were actually going to vault the weapon because they “messed up and rolled out the Infinity Blade overpower/ without good counters.” Epic thanks everyone for calling them out on their mistake.
 
3. Blizzard Shuts Down Heroes of the Storm Esports
 
Heroes of the Storm has been one of Blizzard’s most supported esports with both the Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm bringing out great competition in the past. Despite that, Blizzard announced last night they will be cancelling previously planned esports competitions for the MOBA and siphoning developers away from the game to work on other projects. Several professional Heroes of the Storm players have taken to Twitter to express their disgust at how Blizzard has blindsided them.
 
4. Artifact 1.1 Update adds Social Features
 
Despite the faltering player counts, the Artifact team is still pushing on. They released an update today that focuses on improving the social aspects of the game. There is now a chat wheel, in-game and post-game chat, and new automated tournaments. The update announcement also hints at a new update next week that is “focused on a skill-based progression system.” Sounds promising!
 
5. Black Ops 4 Holiday Events Start Today
 
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 holiday events for both Blackout and Zombies have started today for PlayStation 4 players, with PC and Xbox players needing to wait another week. In Blackout, players will notice snowballs, holiday decorations, and holiday-themed supply stashes to get in the holiday spirit. Zombies players will enjoy the new Winter Calling event. Also, players on all platforms will get double XP and double merits all weekend long.

1.Overwatch League Announces 2019 Schedule and Prizes
The schedule for Overwatch League’s second season has just been announced and it has some exciting improvements over last year. For starters, the prize pool has been raised to $5 million to keep up with the increased number of teams. Perhaps more exciting, there will finally be games played outside of Blizzard’s arena in southern California. The Dallas Fuel, Atlanta Reign, and Los Angeles Valiant will all host games in their home cities. The regular season starts on February 14th of next year.
 
2. Epic Games Opening up Cross-Platform Services to other Developers
 
A major component to Fortnite’s explosive growth over the last year has been the game’s cross-platform compatibility. Now, Epic Games is going to help all game developers make their games cross-platform starting next year. Epic Games announced they will roll out tools for cross-platform login, voice chat, parties, and cloud storage. All of these services will be “free for all developers, and will be open to all engines, all platforms, and all stores.”
 
3. Metro Exodus will Release One Week Early
 
Metro Exodus just went gold and perhaps to celebrate the developers have announced they will release the game a week early. Metro Exodus was originally slated to release on February 22nd of next year, the same day as the highly-anticipated MMO Anthem, but it will now release on February 15th. There was going to be a movie based on the Metro series but it has been cancelled due to the screenwriters planning to move the story to Washington DC, which the author didn’t appreciate.
 
4. Pokemon Go PVP is now Live
 
As of today, you can finally battle other trainers in Pokemon Go! You will need to level 10 or higher to participate in trainer battles. You can access battles by scanning another user’s trainer code, which means you can mostly only battle people near you. The exception is your Ultra or Best Friends, who you can battle over the internet.
 
5. The Division 2 Technical Alpha Announced
 
Ubisoft announced a technical alpha test for The Division 2, starting on December 15th. Only a handful of users will be granted access to this preliminary test of the game and unfortunately they’ve already been preselected. If you didn’t get in but still want to play The Division 2 before it releases, you can pre-order the game now to earn beta access. We don’t yet know when the beta will be, but it will naturally occur before the game releases on March 15th. The Division 2 moves the story from New York City down into Washington D.C.

Overwatch’s holiday event is live now, with plenty of new skins, emotes, and other cosmetics for you to unlock. This year doesn’t actually introduce a new holiday-themed game mode, but Blizzard has brought back both Yeti Hunter and Mei’s Snowball Offensive. Some of the new holiday skins include Snowboarder Zarya, Arctic Fox Lucio, and Junkrat Krampus. What’s your favorite skin from this year’s Winter Wonderland? Let us know!
 
2. Battle Royale Tycoon lets you Run a BR Theme Park
 
It’s a battle royale world, and we’re just gaming in it. Battle Royale Tycoon takes things fully meta and lets you run your own battle royale theme park. Much like Rollercoaster Tycoon has you design rollercoasters for your guests, Battle Royale Tycoon lets you design battle royales for them. Just like any other theme park, you’ll need to hire staff, set up bathrooms, and create food accomodations for your guests. But then instead of riding rides, they’ll try to kill each other. The game is in Steam Early Access if you’d like to play it, or you can check out the article linked below to read more and see some gameplay.
 
3. New Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC Coming Next Week
 
Shadow of the Tomb Raider has been flying under the radar as a great game that came out this year, but that isn’t stopping the team behind the game. They released their first DLC, called The Forge, in October and now the game’s second DLC is coming out next week. The new DLC is called The Pillar and we don’t know the exact details of it yet, but we do know it releases on December 18th. If you’re interested in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you can still play the game’s first few levels for free now!
 
4. Artifact is Struggling to Keep a Playerbase
 
Artifact, Valve’s digital card game that released late last month, has been steadily losing players. According to SteamCharts and SteamDB the game peaked at 60,740 concurrent players on November 29th. In the last 24 hours, there were only 12,670 concurrent players. That’s a massive falloff for a game that is so new and has all the advantage’s Artifact has. It is uncertain whether Artifact’s issues stem from the game’s complexity, its economic model, or something else. Have you tried Artifact? Are you interested in the game at all? Let us know!
 
5. Stardew Valley Multiplayer on Switch is Finally Here
 
A new update went live this morning that has brought multiplayer to Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the game have been waiting for this for a while now, so it is exciting to see the day has finally come. The update supports 4-player online co-op play. You can invite up to 3 friends to a single-player save you already have, or you can start fresh. There is also support for both voice and text chat with your friends while you play. Pretty sweet!

1. The Infinity Blade is now Live in Fortnite
Well, that was fast. Yesterday we talked about the sword that would be coming to Fortnite and today we are happy to tell you the Infinity Blade is now in the game. The Infinity Blade is similar to Thanos’s Gauntlet from the Marvel crossover event; only one spawns per game, at the top of Polar Peak, and whoever wields it will receive some buffs. When holding the Infinity Blade players will drop all their items, gain extra health and shields, and receive a movement speed buff. Sounds pretty neat, huh? Have you all had a chance to try the Infinity Blade yet? What do you think?
 
2. Black Ops 4’s First Premium DLC Leaked
 
The first multiplayer map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 apparently leaked last night, as some players in Australia noticed they were able to download and play two new multiplayer maps. Some of these players even posted footage of the new maps, Madagascar and Elevation, to YouTube. Players were even able to access the new zombies mode called Dead of the Night. Treyarch has said they will release an official trailer of the new DLC some time today. Also, some seasonal changes went live in the game’s Blackout mode yesterday.
 
3. Pirate MMO ‘Atlas’ Delayed until Next Week
 
Atlas is a pirate-themed MMO that was supposed to release to Steam Early Access this week. Now, the game has been delayed until at least next week. Atlas is a massive virtual world that will enable you to rule over your own island, engage in multiplayer ship battles, and explore hundreds of other islands all in one online server. On paper, the game sounds like a dream. In practice? We’ll have to wait and see. Atlas will launch on December 19th if there are no further delays.
 
4. Fallout 76 Patch Introduces some Requested Features
 
Fallout 76 has had a bit of a bumpy launch, to say the least. But today’s patch looks to be a step in the right direction without any immediately glaring mistakes from Bethesda. The new patch lets players use push-to-talk for voice chat, with Caps Lock being the default keybind. There are also now sliders to adjust your Field of View and Depth of Field. Finally, the patch implemented support for ultrawidescreen displays. Are you still playing Fallout 76? Is it worth it? Let us know!
 
5. GTA Online gets Arena War Update
 
A new update to GTA Online has introduced Arena War, which allows players to battle with custom vehicles inside the Maze Bank Arena. Arena War comes with 7 new game modes including deathmatch, capture the flag, and races. You can purchase the Arena Workshop which will allow you to customize your vehicles so you’re more equipped for the vehicular carnage that awaits you. It looks like Rockstar is still committed to GTA Online despite recently releasing Red Dead Redemption 2, which is nice. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the new update for GTA Online!

1.Swords are Coming to Fortnite Soon
Epic Games posted a teaser on their Twitter page this morning that shows a player pulling a sword out of ice in King Arthur style. To the astute observer, this won’t come as a surprise; one of the first images of season 7 showed a character holding a sword in the background. We don’t know whether there will be only one sword or if they’ll introduce different ones in the future. Either way, expect to see swords in game some time this week or next week at the latest.
 
2. Geralt of Rivia is coming to Monster Hunter World
 
The team behind Monster Hunter World announced a few big updates coming to their game, including the introduction of Geralt of Rivia to their game. Geralt is the main character of the Witcher series, so he seems like a perfect fit for another game all about killing ungodly monsters. Monster Hunter World will also be getting the Iceborne expansion, which apparently has enough content to make it feel like a whole new game. Iceborne will release by the end of this year and the update that introduces Geralt of Rivia will come out early next year.
 
3. South Korea Criminalizes Video Game Account Boosting
 
Account boosting is the process where a high skill player plays on a lower skilled player’s account in order to boost them to a higher rank. It is unhealthy for a video game’s ranked ecosystem as it messes up matchmaking and creates unfair games both when the booster is playing and afterwards. South Korea has now expanded their Game Industry Promotion Act to criminalize the act of account boosting. Players caught boosting can now get charged with a two-year suspended prison sentence and a fine of up to $18,000 USD.
 
4. Doom Creator Announces New Levels for Original 1993 Doom
 
Today is the 25th anniversary of the originally Doom and the game’s creator just announced a free expansion for the original game to celebrate. The expansion is called Sigil and it will include 18 new levels, evenly split between single-player and deathmatch. Players must own the original 1993 version of Doom in order to play the new levels. Sigil will release in mid-February of next year.
 
5. Rainbow Six Siege Autobans are now Less Automatic
 
Earlier this year Ubisoft announced and implemented a feature that would automatically detect racist and homophobic language and ban the offending users accordingly. Now, the system will still detect slurs in messages but users will be manually reviewed before they are banned. This is to improve the gameplay experience of all users, as having one of your teammates banned mid-game feels pretty bad. The new system will prevent these messages from being sent and warn the user that their message hasn’t been sent and is under review for inappropriate language.

POPULAR The Daily Moot (12/7/18)

Happy Friday JingleMoots! It's the holiday season and in this week's episode of Moot Points with Dylan and Brian the boys talk about Fortnite's new season. The season brings some massive additions and changes to the most popular game in the world and the guys have some hot takes on it all. Check out the episode below! And pay attention, there is a way for you to earn FREE MOOT COINS if you're fast! (apologies for the audio quality this week, we experienced some last minute technical difficulties)
 
2. ‘The Block’ will Bring the best of Fortnite’s Creative Mode to Battle Royale
 
Yesterday we saw the start of Fortnite’s new Creative mode, where players can freely build their own custom creations, and now we’ve found out that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Epic Games has leveled Risky Reels(RIP) to create a new flat plaza called The Block. The Block will feature different player-made creations for the whole world to see. They will be watching social media to find the creations they want to bring to the real map, so remember to use the #FortniteBlockParty hashtag when tweeting out your builds.
 
3. PUBG Reveals Winter Map, on PC Test Servers Now
 
At The Game Awards last night, PUBG Corp. revealed their new winter map. The new map, named Vikendi, will release on PC servers on December 19th. If you can’t wait that long to play it, you’re actually in luck; Vikendi is now playable on PC test servers. The reveal trailer didn’t show much of the map, but early streams from this morning have been promising. See the map for yourself on the PC test servers while you can.
 
4. Black Ops 4 Battle Edition Announced
 
Activision Blizzard just announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition, which is now available on Battle.net. The Battle Edition features only the multiplayer and Blackout modes, leaving out Zombies. The Battle Edition will cost only $30 USD until January 6th, when the price goes up $10, and you will have the option to upgrade to the full edition of the game for an undisclosed price if you ever feel like playing Zombies. Thanks, Activision Blizzard.
 
5. 10 Million USD to be Invested into Magic: The Gathering Arena Esports
 
Wizards of the Coast announced at The Game Awards last night they will be invested $10 Million USD into an esports program for their new software Magic: The Gathering Arena. MTGA is a free way to play the classic Magic: the Gathering card game in a digital setting. The Magic Pro League will feature 32 of the world’s top ranked players, who will be offered $75,000 yearly contracts to play and stream the game. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of all of this is how Wizards is attempting to tie together the paper and digital aspects of their game, as paper tournaments can qualify players for online tournaments and vice versa.

1. Fortnite Season 7 is Here!
Christmas has come early everyone! Fortnite’s new season is here and it has tons of updates to the game, just as we’ve come to expect. They’ve introduced some drastic changes to the map to match the season’s winter theme. There are also now ziplines and airplanes in the game to help you maneuver around the map. There are also now ‘wraps’ which let you customize the appearance of your weapon. You can read more about season 7 at the link below, but really you should probably just launch up the game and see it for yourself!
 
2. The Game Awards 2018 are Tonight
 
The Game Awards 2018 will be broadcast tonight at 6 pm PST on all major streaming services. On top of the awards aspect of the event, some studios will be making big announcements about future games at tonight’s show. We know for sure there will be a big Far Cry reveal, for example. There will also be musical performances and celebrity appearances, so there’s sure to be something for the whole family!
 
3. Bethesda Support Leaks Fallout 76 Customer Information
 
If you purchased Fallout 76, you may want to move to protect yourself. Some users who submitted customer support tickets noticed a loophole that enabled them to view the tickets of others, which included access to personal information. This personal information could include name, email, home address, or even credit card information. After some users reported it to Bethesda, they responded with ‘we’ve resolved this issue.’ Will the trainwreck that is Fallout 76 ever end?
 
4. Play a Free Trial of Shadow of the Tomb Raider
 
Shadow of the Tomb Raider released earlier this year to generally positive reviews, but if you haven’t played it yet you now have a great chance. There is a new free trial version of the game on both PC and consoles that will let you try out the opening levels to see if the game interests you. If you decide to purchase the game, your progression from the free trial will carry over. Pretty sweet!
 
5. A New PUBG Short Film Celebrates the Game’s PS4 Release
 
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds finally comes to the PlayStation 4 tomorrow and to celebrate the launch PUBG Corp. partnered with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts to produce a PUBG short film. The film features Jason Mitchell, who is perhaps most known for his role as Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton. It’s only a few minutes long, so you really have no reason NOT to check it out!

1. Fortnite Creative Coming with Season 7
With the launch of Fortnite’s seventh season you will be able to start customizing your own private island. According to the announcement post you will be able to “design games, race around the island, battle your friends in new ways, and build your dream Fortnite.” Everything you make will be saved for future use, which is sweet. Creative will actually only be available to Battle Pass owners during the first week of the season, but after that everyone will gain access. What do you guys think? Cool or drool?
 
2. Fallout 76 In-Game Events will Start Next Year
 
Bethesda confirmed we won’t be seeing live in-game events in Fallout 76 until early next year. According to the announcement, Bethesda said these events will take place over the course of a week, will be different every time, and “will often provide a small buff or create an interesting twist on normal gameplay.” Plenty of games are testing the weekly in-game events model to keep their userbase engaged over the long-term; we’ll have to wait and see how well Bethesda can pull it off in Fallout 76.
 
3. ‘Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam’ Releases on Mobile Next Week
 
If you’re looking for a new mobile game to play, Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam may be just that. This new skateboarding game is free to play and comes to mobile devices next week. The game follows the class Tony Hawk formula: skate through over 15 different parks, pull off wicked tricks, and set high scores. Tony Hawk games of old were fan favorites, but recent editions have been a bit disappointing. Hopefully the new title can live up to the legacy of the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater games.
 
4. PUBG Players on PC Receive a Gift for the Holidays
 
PC players who log into PUBG during December’s event will receive a Festive Beanie and a Red Nose so their character can get into the mood of the season. You can wear these items for all of December, at which point they will disappear from your inventory unless you earn the right to keep them. How do you earn these items permanently, you wonder? Well, all you need to do is place in the top 10 of any map or non-custom game mode ten times during the event. Good luck!
 
5. Ubisoft Teases a new Far Cry Game
 
Ubisoft released a teaser video ahead of their presentation at The Game Awards tomorrow that seems to tease a new Far Cry game. The video shows a landscape strikingly similar to the environment of Far Cry 5 before a nuclear blast goes off. The video ends with the caption “Tune in for the worldwide reveal of the next Far Cry” which pretty directly states this is a teaser for a new game, not a DLC or expansion or any of that nonsense. Well, guess we will just have to wait and see!

1. Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Wind Bastion is now Live
The new Rainbow Six Siege operation is now live, bringing with it a new map, two new operators, and tweaks to some of the game’s current operators. The new operators are Kaid, the stoic Commander, and Nomad, the world traveler. Nomad is an attacker who can launch grenades from her rifle that will detonate midair if they detect an enemy. Kaid is a defender who can use his electroclaw to electrify reinforced walls and hatches, barbed wire, or deployable shields.
 
2. Epic Games Launches Digital Store to Rival Steam
 
Epic Games just announced the Epic Games Store, which will provide a marketplace for developers to sell digital copies of their PC games. In an unprecedented move, Epic Games will provide developers 88% of the revenue from their game sales. The market standard is only 70%, so this extremely generous split may draw some developers to publish their games on the Epic Games Store. To add a cherry on top, Epic will also waive all Unreal Engine royalty fees for games sold on their new marketplace.
 
3. Trainer Battles Coming to Pokemon Go Soon
 
Well, it’s definitely taken longer than it should’ve, but it seems you will finally be able to battle your friends in Pokemon Go soon. You can challenge other trainers using Battle Codes. Choose a team of three Pokemon and see who wins! There will also apparently be ‘great rewards’ for both participants. Different leagues that set a max CP per Pokemon will ensure a more even playing field for each battle. Niantic has said the feature will release this month, so keep your eyes peeled!
 
4. Overwatch Reveals Dates for Winter Wonderland Event
 
Overwatch’s holiday event is always one of their most popular, and we don’t expect this year to be any different. The annual Winter Wonderland event will kick off December 11th and end January 2nd of next year. We probably won’t be getting a new winter-themed game mode this year, but you can expect both Mei’s Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunter to make a return. As always, you can also expect winter skins to come to the shop, both new and old.
 
5. Massive December Clash Royale Update
 
Clash Royale is unveiling a super sweet update sometime later this month which will bring brand new content to the already magnificent game. New skins for maxed cards by spending a new currency called Star Points, new limited time game modes, and tournament revamp are just some of the epic updates! Check the two videos below to see all that is to come this month after the most recent card balance update on 12/3!

1. Fortnite Season 7 Teasers Begin
The first teaser for Fortnite’s seventh season warns “a bitter ice spreads.” The image shows a mysterious icy figure that at the least hints at a potential new skin. Season 7 starts in just 3 days, so we can expect another couple images from the Fortnite twitter before then. Hopefully the plot of season 7 relates to the once-in-a-lifetime event where players were sent into a white void, because we still want an explanation about what exactly that was. What do you all expect from Fortnite season 7?
 
2. First Red Dead Online Patch Focuses on the Economy
 
Remember all those times we said Red Dead Online would be shaped on community feedback? Well, Rockstar just revealed their plans for Red Dead Online’s first update and it seems to address the community’s biggest complaint: the economy. Rockstar said the in-game economy “will require some additional balancing in order to insure all activies are appropriately rewarding and fun.” In-game activities provide players with gold, which are used in the in-game Store to purchase cosmetic items now and microtransactions in the future.
 
3. Heroes of the Storm Holiday Event has a Toy Theme
 
Heroes of the Storm has generally been a fun and well-made game, which makes their new holiday update perfectly on-brand. The new event turns heroes into different action figures and stuffed animals. Stitches is now Cuddle Bear Stiches. Dehaka is now Dehakasaurus Rex. You get the idea. There are also new mounts that match the theme of the event, like the legendary stuffed unicorn mount. Finally, there is a new in-game announcer. “The Kid” from the trailer will be available as an in-game announcer, which is perfectly fine with us as he is gosh-darn adorable just like the rest of the event. All the fun starts December 7th.
 
4. More Details about Stellaris’ Megacorp Expansion
 
We knew from the expansion reveal that Megacorp would focus on bringing big business to Stellaris on an intergalactic scale, but a recent video outlines more details about how exactly the Megacorp expansion will do just that. First, there’s a new planet type called Ecumenopolis; these are ‘city planets’ that will support massive populations, and presumably provide massive business opportunities. There are also new intergalactic salesmen called Caravaneers who will provide you with great deals when you see them. The expansion will release alongside the free Le Guin update, which reworks the game’s economy. You can buy Megacorp for $20 USD and it will be live this Thursday.
 
5. First Battlefield 5 Update comes out Tomorrow
 
Despite a bumpy launch, Battlefield 5 is putting out its first free batch of content tomorrow. The update, called Overture, is a part of the Tides of War series of content DICE announced last month. Overture adds a new multiplayer map called Panzerstorm that focused on vehicle combat. The new single-player mission included in Overture is called The Last Tiger. The Last Tiger also focuses on tank combat, as it puts you one of the famed German Tiger 1 tanks. Finally, Overture introduces some new cosmetic options for vehicles and adds a couple new arcade modes.

2. Fortnite Account Merging Delayed Until Next Year
 
Back in September, Epic Games announced they were working on a feature that would let players merge two accounts into one. Some players were forced to create multiple accounts because Sony wasn’t happy with the idea that users may play on another platform, like the Nintendo Switch. Now, Epic Games has announced technical issues have caused them to push back the release of account merging into early next year. Oh well; we can wait a little bit longer, can’t we?
 
3. Sign up for Anthem’s Closed Alpha Testing Now
 
Electronic Arts (EA) announced yesterday sign-ups for Anthem’s alpha testing are now open. The tests start on December 8th and you can sign up for a slot to test on one of the three major platforms (Xbox, PS4, or PC.) EA has warned the Anthem tests could be a rough, as the game is still in early stages and they will be testing things on the fly during the alpha. The article below has more details about the alpha and includes a link to sign up.
 
4. Trainer Battles are Coming to Pokemon Go Soon
 
Pokemon Go has been strictly PvE (player vs environment) since it launched in the summer of 2016, but that will soon change. Niantic revealed on twitter this morning they will soon be introducing Trainer Battles to Pokemon Go. The video clips they’ve introduced show a Trainer standing in a field, similar to how you would see a wild Pokemon in the game when you’re attempting to catch it. We’re uncertain whether this means you’ll be battling NPCs or if you can battle your friends.
 
5. The Elder Scrolls: Blades has been Delayed Until 2019
 
The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a free-to-play mobile game from Bethesda that apparently has looked impressive to those who played it. Todd Howard originally announced a fall 2018 release date, but a tweet yesterday revealed the game will actually release early next year for iOS and Android devices. According to the attached Polygon article, “Blades is not expected to be a full, open-world experience. Instead, it will have more linear levels and some limited social features.”

1. Fortnite Leak Suggests the end of Tilted Towers
Famous Fortnite leaker @FNLeaks tweeted earlier this week some game files they found that apparently suggest the end of Tilted Towers is near. We’ve heard this before so no one will blame you for being a bit skeptical, but this time the leak is at least partially convincing. We mean, one game file in the new update includes the text “DestroyTiltedTowers.” The theory suggests a robot army may bear down on Tilted Towers to destroy it. Do you think this will ever happen?
 
2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will Require a Day One Patch
 
Super Smashs Bros. Ultimate game director Masahiro Sakurai revealed yesterday that the game will require a day one patch to fix its game replay system. The day one patch will only be for those who purchase the physical copy of the game, as the digital download will be updated to include the fix automatically. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on December 7th for the Nintendo Switch.
 
3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Update Adds post-level 50 Mastery System
 
Dedicated Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players will be happy to see they can now continue to progress their character after they hit level 50. A new patch introduced the option to spend ability points on stat bonuses from a new menu screen. The patch also introduces the option to fast travel to mythical creatures and allows PC players to set Alexios and Kassandra’s walking speed. The first DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey comes out on December 4th.
 
4. Bethesda Embarrasses Themselves with Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition
 
Bethesda offered a Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 that was supposed to come with, among other things, a Power Armor Helmet and a canvas bag to keep it in. The whole package cost $200 USD. When it shipped, purchasers found out the bag they received was actually made of nylon, not canvas. Bethesda has said the materials were too expensive to make the bag with canvas and they have no plans to fix things. They did grant players five dollars of in-game currency to compensate them, so there’s that.
 
5. Blizzard Reveals 2019 Esports Plan for Hearthstone
 
Blizzard revealed their plans for the next year of competitive Hearthstone which will partially restructure their game’s competitive scene. Blizzard is moving toward a three-tier system of competitive play. The first tier will consist of mostly online open qualifier tournaments. The next tier up will be live invitational tournaments. Finally, the highest level is called Premier Competition. We don’t know all the details about the highest level play yet, but we do know the whole system will include over $4 million USD in prizes.
