Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (4/16/19) image 2

The first patch in what feels like forever released for Apex Legends this morning and it is PACKED with exciting changes. Caustic and Gibralter have new aspects in their passive that prevent 10% of all damage taken. Snipers will do more damage to arms and legs. The Wingman and Spitfire both have smaller magazines. The gold weapons now have GOOD ATTACHMENTS, like a Digital Threat on a Gold Wingman and a Turbocharger for the Gold Havoc. Finally, your first top 5 of the day for the next 2 days will earn you an entire battle pass level’s worth of experience!

  2. Sony Reveals Next-Gen PlayStation Details   This morning, the lead system architect for the next PlayStation showed off some internal components for the system. The most exciting aspect of the new PlayStation is the inclusion of a solid state drive, which will drastically improve loading speeds. The console will also accept physical disks and include backwards compatibility for at least PlayStation 4 games. Finally, it was confirmed that the next PlayStation will NOT release this year.

3. Is There a New Lego Star Wars Game?   Star Wars Celebration took place this past weekend and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was the video game we all had our eyes on. However, an employee of Skywalker Sound, the studio that makes sound effects for all things Star Wars, mentioned in an interview a new Lego Star Wars game set to release this year. This is the first public mention of any such game. Apparently, the new Lego Star Wars game will focus on the entire saga instead of just a specific episode.

  4. ‘Fate of Atlantis’ DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Coming Next Week   Ubisoft just dropped the launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Fate of Atlantis DLC and it is striking. The first chapter of the DLC, which releases on April 23rd, is titled Fields of Elysium. In it, you will explore the afterlife of Greek mythology. The remaining two episodes of the DLC release in a couple months and will take us even further into the mysteries of the Greek gods. The Fate of Atlantis DLC costs $24.99 by itself, but it is also included in the game’s $40 season pass.

  5. GameStop Launches “Guaranteed to Love it” Program   GameStop is offering a new deal starting with Days Gone; if you buy a game and within 48 hours decide you don’t like it, you can turn it in for full value in store credit. This should give console gamers who like to own physical versions of games some more flexibility. Theoretically, you could even beat the game within 48 hours and return it for maximum value. Will this save GameStop? Who knows? Who cares?

    :) Because you have never dropped/landed in hot/blue zone and never looted someone carrying it. Don't worry, you will come across golden version of a gun at some point. Imo golden prowler was the best among them.

    This update made me really happy, they took a lot of steps towards the right direction of making a balanced and competitive game.
    Snipers really needed some buffs, and with these quality of life improvements I believe many more people will be using them.

    I don't think people everyone realises how much 10% of all incoming damage is. It essentially makes these characters have 220HP with a purple armor, 20HP might not seem like a lot, but that's the difference between surviving a Kraber Headshot with a blue helmet and getting oneshot. Also this extra durability doesn't make healing any slower, making them even less vulnerable to poke damage
    At least caustic and gibraltar still die to 4 melees, crossing that line would make them so obnoxious on early fights on contested areas.

    Much needed balances
