The Daily Moot (11/7/18)News Picks
1. Treyarch Adds a Zombie Boss to Blackout
Blackout already features some zombies in certain spots on the map, but the game mode now also features the Blightfather from the game’s Zombies mode. The Blightfather is located south of the Asylum area in the Graveyard. You’ll know when the Blightfather is around to kill by a red pillar of light. Treyarch has also said those who are able to kill the Blightfather will be rewarded with some sweet loot. The Blightfather won’t be around forever though, as Treyarch announced he will disappear on November 13th at 10am PDT.
2. Temporal Surge lets Destiny 2 Players buy Retired Emotes Destiny 2 players can usually purchase cosmetics for the current season in the Eververse store. When the season ends, the cosmetics are no longer available. But now, Bungie is introducing the Temporal Surge store to Destiny 2, where players will be able to buy cosmetics from previous seasons. The current Temporal Surge store offers only emotes, but Bungie has promised future Temporal Surges will include different cosmetics. The only hitch with the Temporal Surge is that the cosmetics included can only be purchased with Silver, which is Destiny 2’s real-money currency.
3. Red Dead Redemption 2 has Sold 17 Million Copies If you haven’t played it yet and couldn’t tell from all the buzz around it, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a pretty sweet game. So sweet, in fact, that 17 million copies of it have already been purchased around the world since it released on October 26th. Technically those 17 million copies have been sold to retailers, but not necessarily passed on to consumers yet. The game also had a historically massive opening weekend, raking in $725 million over 3 days. All of this and it’s not even available on PC.
4. Esports Arena is Opening Locations Inside of Walmarts Esports Arena is a company that runs gaming locations around the West Coast of the US, but they will soon be expanding into Walmarts. There are five locations planned so far, presumably with more on the horizon if the initial wave does well. Each of the five Walmarts will feature roughly 25 PCs or PlayStation 4 setups that will be linked with other Esports Arenas for tournament and league play. The price is $5 per hour and $10 to enter events.
5. League of Legends Worlds 2018 was the Game’s Most Watched Event Ever League of Legends viewership numbers have been declining over the course of this year, possibly due to the meteoric rise of Fortnite, but this year’s World Championship still set a new high-water mark for the game. At one point during the past weekend, 1.14 million people were watching Worlds which tops last year’s record by 50,000.
