Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (5/2/19) image 2

In unexpected news, Epic Games announced yesterday that they are working to acquire Psyonix, the studio that makes Rocket League. This means you can expect to see Rocket League on the Epic Game Store sometime soon. Meanwhile, Psyonix has announced they will continue to support Rocket League on Steam and will even continue to sell the game on Steam at least until it is available on Epic’s store. If you’re interested in Rocket League, be sure to keep an eye on the Rocket League lounge here on Moot. We have some exciting news coming soon!

  2. BioWare Set to Focus on Dragon Age 4   So, Anthem wasn’t exactly a smooth launch. It seems BioWare is aware of the game’s troubles, as they’re moving several key members of the development team away from Anthem. Looking forward, BioWare is set to invest the majority of their resources into the next Dragon Age game. Still, it may be some time before we actually see Dragon Age 4 as the studio has been relatively silent on the actual content of the new project.

  3. Classic Star Wars Battlefront Comes to GOG   In celebration of Star Wars day, just announced the digital release of the classic Star Wars Battlefront game from 2004. The game is now available to purchase DRM-free for a 15% discount. There are also other Star Wars games on sale for the next week to really celebrate Star Wars week.

  4. Borderlands 3 to have Cosmetic Only Microtransactions   Randy Pitchford, the CEO of Gearbox Studios, revealed yesterday that Borderlands 3 will have cosmetic microtransactions. Well, he said “there’s no microsanctions,” but other team members quickly clarified that you’ll be able to purchase fun ways to customize your game, but none of it will be pay-to-win. This model of mictrosanctions, where you can only purchase cosmetic items, is quickly becoming the industry standard.

  5. Tilted Towers is Apparently Broken   Fortnite’s Tilted Towers has been a weird place for the last few days. Last week, some players were noticing their Tilted Towers was super low resolution with textures that didn’t load properly. Now, there’s a basement in Tilted Towers where players die immediately upon entering it. This doesn’t seem like an intentional teaser event, but it could be? Epic has said they’re working on a fix for the issue.

    NOOOOOOOOOO I BOUGHT ROCKET LEAGUE ON STEAM LIKE 2 YEARS AGO. If they discontinue in and if I don’t get a fucking refund I’m gonna be so pissed.

  • Superfast Moose LV.1 Mootie May 3, 2019, 09:18 AM

    Amen, I believe they aren’t discontinuing it for us that already own it. They just don’t sell it on steam anymore. It shouldn’t affect the people that already own it at all

  • DaPi LV.32 Happy 2020! May 3, 2019, 09:31 AM

    They might give us a download code for the epic store

  • Myrorem LV.10 Genius May 3, 2019, 10:14 AM

    you do understand that you'll still own the game, right

  • DaPi LV.32 Happy 2020! May 3, 2019, 10:15 AM

    But what if they don’t allow it to work

  • Myrorem LV.10 Genius May 3, 2019, 10:18 AM

    you paid for rocket league

    unless you do something to get you banned, they have no legal right to take away your copy of rocket league

  • NO NAME verified May 3, 2019, 10:42 AM

    Yikes..that's a negative.. you bought a key which allows you to use the game as you wish. No ifs...

  • BerzerkieBoi LV.2 Lurker May 3, 2019, 08:52 PM

  • PattyStrikeXD LV.10 The Best May 3, 2019, 08:59 AM

    WTF?! Epic?!
    They should have focus fixing their game 'Fortnite' before the community kill it.

  • InfiniteCheese LV.17 Insomniac May 3, 2019, 09:39 AM

    NO! NNOO!!! Epic is... not the best company. They had their fifteen minutes of fame with fortnite, but that's really the only 'good' thing they've done in years. So at this point, they're just trying to bring Rocket League back down with them. Maybe I'll play it a bit just to give it a final sendoff before they ruin it.

  • Doogie27 LV.4 Lurker May 3, 2019, 09:42 AM

    I hate Fortnite so I hate epic so I hate rocket league

  • klara LV.20 Rare Candy May 3, 2019, 10:08 AM
