The Daily Moot: Fall GuysNews Picks
1. Fall Guys
Fall Guys has officially launched. The multiplayer free-for-all party game has been an immediate success, garnering hundreds of thousands of day-one downloads and reaching over 350,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch. Unfortunately, the servers weren’t quite prepared for the influx of eager players which has led to widespread performance issues. Things seem to be running smoothly now, but it’s reasonable to expect a bit of turbulence as Devolver Digital works to get everything in order on launch day. Fall Guys is available now on PlayStation Plus and Steam; you can check out the launch trailer for the game below.
2. Overwatch Summer Games The 2020 edition of the Overwatch Summer Games is here. As expected, Lucioball is back once again to provide you with all the Overwatch soccer action you’ve been missing. This year features a twist on the game mode with Lucioball Remix. Lucioball Remix is faster and more hectic than the original mode, featuring 2 balls in play instead of just one. The 2020 Overwatch Summer Games are set to run from now until August 26.
3. Baldur’s Gate 3 Delay Baldur’s Gate 3 has been delayed. Developer Larian Studios had been targeting an August release date for the early access version of the game, but it unfortunately seems that progress hasn’t come along quite as quickly as the team was hoping for. Although early access won’t be available in August, Larian Studios has promised that the game is “just around the corner” and said that the official release date along with other “big news” will be revealed during their “Panel From Hell” event on August 18.
4. Blasphemous Expansion The action-platformer/metroidvania Blasphemous has received a massive expansion. The update, which is called Stir of Dawn, greatly increases the scope of the game by adding new areas, bosses, and even a new storyline. It seems that much of the content is geared towards players who have already played Blasphemous as the new Stir of Dawn bosses are expected to provide the most challenging fights in the game. The Stir of Dawn expansion is available now and is free for all players who own the base game of Blasphemous.
5. Red Dead Online Alligators Alligators have now made their way to the Wild West. Red Dead Online’s recent Naturalist update introduced a new hunting-themed aspect to the game which enables players to track down animals and become either conservationists or poachers. Regardless of which path you take, you’ll now be able to test your skills by hunting the legendary “Teca” and “Sun” gators, both of which will grant extra experience and rewards this week.
