1. Division 2’s Dark Hours Raid Won’t be Made Easier
In response to some rumors last week, Ubisoft has clarified that they will NOT be making the Dark Hours raid in The Division 2 any easier. Since the raid launched last week, 7,000 PC players and 200 console players have completed the raid. If you compare these numbers to the number of people actually playing The Division 2, you’ll see how difficult the content really is. Specifically, the number of console players able to beat the raid is concerning. Maybe Ubisoft should take the Overwatch approach and balance PC and console separately. Thoughts?
2. Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t be Playable at E3 CD Projekt Red has confirmed they will be at E3 with Cyberpunk 2077, but unfortunately the game will not be playable for the general public. Instead, E3 attendees will have the opportunity to watch gameplay presentations where CD Projekt Red employees will be playing. While it is sad the game won’t be playable, we’ve all been eager to see more Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay so this is at least a small victory.
3. Nioh 2 Closed Alpha Coming to PS4 Team Ninja has announced they will run a closed alpha for Nioh 2 starting tomorrow and running until June 2nd. The alpha test will only be available to a few PlayStation 4 players. Apparently the test is limited to a small number of players “to ensure the team can manage the feedback.” It is not immediately clear to us how one can get into the closed alpha, which unfortunately may mean it is too late if you haven’t already been invited.
4. Mordhau is Reverting Some Player Bans Mordhau is a medieval multiplayer game focusing on melee combat. The Mordhau developers banned around 2,000 players this week for using third party software, but they’re now overturning some of those bans. Third party software can be a common way to cheat, but there are also many third party programs that are completely harmless. If you’ve been unfairly banned and it wasn’t overturned, you can contact the Mordhau developers and they’ll look into it.
5. Fortnite Hotfix Attempts to Address Building Delays Since patch v9.10, some Fortnite players have complained about delays while trying to build. Epic released a hotfix this morning to address, and hopefully fix, the issues players have been experiencing. Specifically, there was a bug when you pulled out your weapon while editing. Doing this would cause your weapon to turn invisible AND it would prevent you from building more.
