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.

    They’re also trying to work on starting dauntless. Epic is gonna be so overloaded their games are gonna go to shit unless they hire a shit ton of people who will actually dev instead of making skins and ptp bs. Taking care of the games fundamentals are way more important to me than this flashy crap. Some part of me wishes epic would just drown already. They destroyed paragon which I loved. Ruined fortnite. Became a fad to be passed up in the next 2 yrs I guarantee. The World Cup cross platform stupidity was enough for me to say f that game. No comp will ever be fair in that game anymore.
