The Daily Moot (11/8/18)
We just introduced Moot V2.2.1 which has some massive improvements to the LFG experience on Moot. Check out the post below to see how we made finding your perfect teammates even easier than it was before!
1. YouTube has Arrived on the Nintendo Switch
Well, it looks like the rumors from earlier this week were in fact true. The incredibly popular video streaming app YouTube is now available for free download on your Nintendo Switch. Before now, the only video streaming service on the Switch was Hulu. A large reason for the lack of non-gaming apps on the Switch was Nintendo’s desire to focus on growing their games library first, but now that the console has a decent array of games you can expect more non-gaming apps like YouTube to become available.
2. Red Dead Online Beta Coming at the End of November We already knew the Red Dead Online beta would be coming out in November, but Rockstar has now confirmed it will release to the public at the end of the month. The developers also confirmed Red Dead Online will use the game’s full map and have fluid development. That means, like GTA Online, the developers will tune Red Dead Online’s development to match what the players like and dislike. Get those campaigns finished soon people, you don’t have much time left!
3. Fallout 76 Beta now Locks FOV and Caps Framerate The Fallout 76 beta on PC has had some bumps so far, with speed-hacking being rampant for those who knew how to unlock their framerate. Now, instead of fixing the actual issue, Bethesda has resorted to locking the framerate and heavily restricting the Field of View options. There is only one more beta period before the game’s official release next week.
4. Hitman 2 Official Gameplay Launch Trailer Hitman 2 has had some exciting advertising building up to its release, the pinnacle being a series of videos featuring Sean Bean. This morning, the game’s official gameplay launch trailer came out and it definitely helps to build the hype. Hitman 2 is available tomorrow if you have purchased the Gold Edition, but the rest of us will have to wait until November 13th to get our hands on it.
5. World of Warcraft Classic Demo Will Continue Through the Weekend If you purchased a Virtual Ticket for BlizzCon 2018, you’ve had access to the World of Warcraft: Classic Demo for the past week. Blizzard announced today the demo won’t last forever; in fact, it will be unavailable after this weekend. In the demo, you can choose your race and class and then you start at level 15. You can explore one area, the Barrens for the Horde and Westfall for the Alliance, and you can only level up to 19. World of Warcraft: Classic will full release next summer.
