The Daily Moot (11/13/18)
1. Glider Redeploy is Leaving Fortnite’s Default Modes
Glider redeploy was controversially added to all game modes in Fortnite about a month ago. If players fell from a certain height, they would be able to pull out their glider. This naturally changed the dynamic of many aspects of the game and was rather controversial. Epic Games will be removing glider redeploy from the game’s default modes, restricting it only to larger team modes, while they continue testing the mechanic. Do you guys enjoy glider redeploy? Do you want to see it again? Let us know!
2. Blizzard Announces Official Overwatch Cosplay Battle Blizzard is organizing an official cosplay battle that will pit teams from six different European countries against each other. The Overwatch Cosplay Battle will see teams of three cosplayers from France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom spend three months working collectively on one costume. Which costume each team makes will be influenced by community votes. There is a panel of judges, Blizzard artists and cosplayers included, and the community vote will also matter.
3. PUBG on PS4 to have Exclusive Cosmetics If the former biggest game in the world coming to the PlayStation 4 wasn’t already exciting, Bluehole has now revealed PS4 players will get some exclusive cosmetics alongside their purchase of PUBG. What is especially sweet is the nature of the cosmetics, as they’re all related to other PS4 exclusives. You’ll be able to play as Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series, and if you pre-order you’ll get Ellie’s backpack from The Last of Us. Finally, if you play on day-one you’ll get a bonus PlayStation themed parachute.
