The Daily Moot (Legends of Runeterra, Fortnite Season 2, and More!)
1. Legends of Runeterra
Legends of Runeterra is now live! Riot Games is finally putting the “s” in Games with the official launch of Legends of Runeterra, their new digital CCG. Unlike Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra has its own client and is being treated as a unique game completely independent of League of Legends. That said, there’s still a lot of League influence with many popular champions making an appearance. Check out the new game and join in on the discussion over on our new Legends of Runeterra lounge!
2. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has finally been announced! After an extremely long Season 1, players will no doubt be excited for the arrival of Season 2 and the changes it will bring. There’s no word yet on what exactly we can expect in the upcoming season, but we’ll likely get some more news in the coming weeks. Chapter 2 Season 2 begins February 20.
3. Rocket League Closing Online Multiplayer Rocket League is closing its online multiplayer for certain PC players. Starting in March, developer Psyonix will stop providing support for Linux and Mac users. This means all online content will be disabled, including things such as online matchmaking, friends lists, and shops. Psyonix recommends players who will be affected to download the Windows version of the game before March in order to continue playing with full functionality.
4. Steam Lunar New Year Sale The Steam Lunar New Year Sale is here, offering huge discounts on thousands of games. Some of the highlights include 66% off Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, 75% off Vermintide 2, and 90% off Phoning Home. Even if you’re not looking to expand your gaming library, Steam is giving out Year of the Rat tokens every day to all users. You can spend these tokens in the Lunar New Year Night Market, which offers Steam enhancements such as animated profile backgrounds, chat room effects, and chat stickers.
5. Plague Inc. Resurgence Plague Inc. has experience a huge surge in popularity in China amid the current Coronavirus outbreak. The game, which first launched in 2012, is now the top paid app in China's iOS store. Showing a display of a dark sense of humor among Chinese gamers, Plague Inc. is a strategy game where players try to eliminate humanity with a gradually mutating pathogen.
