2. Fortnite’s Infinity Blade has Been Vaulted! Players, Christmas came early! Epic Games took to Twitter this morning to announce they have vaulted the controversial Infinity Blade. In an earlier update, Epic Games announced they were nerfing the Infinity Blade by making it so the weapon could no longer be used to harvest resources. The community was unhappy with this, and Epic Games later announced they were actually going to vault the weapon because they “messed up and rolled out the Infinity Blade overpower/ without good counters.” Epic thanks everyone for calling them out on their mistake.
3. Blizzard Shuts Down Heroes of the Storm Esports Heroes of the Storm has been one of Blizzard’s most supported esports with both the Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm bringing out great competition in the past. Despite that, Blizzard announced last night they will be cancelling previously planned esports competitions for the MOBA and siphoning developers away from the game to work on other projects. Several professional Heroes of the Storm players have taken to Twitter to express their disgust at how Blizzard has blindsided them.
4. Artifact 1.1 Update adds Social Features Despite the faltering player counts, the Artifact team is still pushing on. They released an update today that focuses on improving the social aspects of the game. There is now a chat wheel, in-game and post-game chat, and new automated tournaments. The update announcement also hints at a new update next week that is “focused on a skill-based progression system.” Sounds promising!
