2. ‘The Block’ will Bring the best of Fortnite’s Creative Mode to Battle Royale Yesterday we saw the start of Fortnite’s new Creative mode, where players can freely build their own custom creations, and now we’ve found out that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Epic Games has leveled Risky Reels(RIP) to create a new flat plaza called The Block. The Block will feature different player-made creations for the whole world to see. They will be watching social media to find the creations they want to bring to the real map, so remember to use the #FortniteBlockParty hashtag when tweeting out your builds.
3. PUBG Reveals Winter Map, on PC Test Servers Now At The Game Awards last night, PUBG Corp. revealed their new winter map. The new map, named Vikendi, will release on PC servers on December 19th. If you can’t wait that long to play it, you’re actually in luck; Vikendi is now playable on PC test servers. The reveal trailer didn’t show much of the map, but early streams from this morning have been promising. See the map for yourself on the PC test servers while you can.
4. Black Ops 4 Battle Edition Announced Activision Blizzard just announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition, which is now available on Battle.net. The Battle Edition features only the multiplayer and Blackout modes, leaving out Zombies. The Battle Edition will cost only $30 USD until January 6th, when the price goes up $10, and you will have the option to upgrade to the full edition of the game for an undisclosed price if you ever feel like playing Zombies. Thanks, Activision Blizzard.
5. 10 Million USD to be Invested into Magic: The Gathering Arena Esports Wizards of the Coast announced at The Game Awards last night they will be invested $10 Million USD into an esports program for their new software Magic: The Gathering Arena. MTGA is a free way to play the classic Magic: the Gathering card game in a digital setting. The Magic Pro League will feature 32 of the world’s top ranked players, who will be offered $75,000 yearly contracts to play and stream the game. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of all of this is how Wizards is attempting to tie together the paper and digital aspects of their game, as paper tournaments can qualify players for online tournaments and vice versa.
