The Daily Moot (5/13/19)

News Picks

1. Apex Legends may Start Punishing ‘Piggybackers’

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (5/13/19) image 2

Respawn Entertainment has identified different type of unsavory behavior that they may start punishing. ‘Piggybacking’ is when a player follows around their squad until the end of the match to earn survival time experience without actually contributing anything. Piggybackers apparently don’t loot, shoot, or even doot (granted, there aren’t any trombones in the game so we'll give a pass on this one).

  2. Dauntless Gets a Console Release Date   Dauntless is a cooperative RPG that has been in open beta on PC for about a year now. The game was initially supposed to come to consoles last month, but it was pushed back. Now, it has been announced that Dauntless will release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 21st. On the same date, Dauntless will be available on PC through the Epic Games Store. Dauntless will come to Nintendo Switch and mobile devices later this year.

  3. New Oddworld: Soulstorm Teaser Video   The newest teaser for Oddworld: Soulstorm finally shows some gameplay from the upcoming title. Soulstorm is the next title in a long line of games featuring Abe the Alien. The new game forces Abe to craft tools for himself in his struggle to save himself and his buddies. Check out the teaser trailer for Oddworld: Soulstorm below. The game is expected to release early next year.

  4. Monster Hunter: World Free Trial on PS4 this Week   This week is your time to try Monster Hunter: World if you’re on PlayStation 4. Until May 20th, PS4 players will be able to download a free demo of Monster Hunter: World to see if the game suits them. Your save data will carry over if you ever decide to buy the full game, which is currently 60% off. Monster Hunter: World’s first expansion, Iceborne, was recently revealed and will be releasing on September 6th.

  5. World of Warcraft Recruit-a-Friend Program Ending   After an incredibly long tenure, the Recruit-a-Friend program in World of Warcraft is coming to an end soon. Through the program, WoW players could invite friends to play with them and experience mutual benefits during the new player’s trial period. Bonus experience, in-game rewards, and more were available to both the new player and their recruiter. Blizzard has said they’re removing the Recruit-a-Friend program to replace it with something else but we don’t have any details about the replacement program yet.

    They only piggyback because they aren't good enough to get to where they want, so I'd rather try than waste my time in a game just for experience.
