The Daily Moot: Fall Guys Season 2News Picks
1. Fall Guys Season 2
Fall Guys Season 2 is officially here. The second season brings plenty of new content and features to the game including 4 new levels, the new “show selector,” and tons of medieval-themed cosmetics. The show selector feature essentially allows players to choose from a handful of different playlists, meaning that you can now avoid any levels that you truly hate and instead spend more time playing the ones you love. Fall Guys Season 2 is live now; you can check out the launch trailer for the season below.
2. Tachanka Rework Rainbow Six Siege’s big Tachanka rework is set to arrive on test servers tomorrow. One of the most notorious operators in the game, Tachanka has long had the unfortunate reputation of being a terrible character to play. Ubisoft is finally looking to change that. Some of the improvements include giving Tachanka the Withstand ability, the removal of the tripod from his LMG, and most importantly, the addition of a new gadget called the Shumikha incendiary grenade launcher. You can check out Ubisoft’s breakdown of the Tachanka rework below.
3. OPL Shutting Down Riot Games has announced that they will be shutting down the Oceanic Pro League for League of Legends. First established in 2015, the OPL serves as the main competitive league for players in the Oceanic region, including Australia and New Zealand. Riot Games said in their statement, “Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of our teams and players, the OPL has not met our goals for the league.” OCE players will now be able to join North America’s LCS teams without being considered an “import,” but it’s difficult to see the avenue for players to get the experience and attention they’d need in order to be scouted by LCS teams without having a major competitive league in their own region. Riot Games will also be closing its entire Sydney office, suggesting that the future is grim for Riot-based esports across the board in Oceania.
4. Mortal Kombat Rambo Rambo will soon be coming to Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate as part of the upcoming Kombat Pack 2. While Rambo is certainly the most surprising addition to the game, the pack will also be bringing back 2 Mortal Kombat veterans in Mileena and Rain. Unlike The Terminator, which was introduced to the game last year but did not feature voice acting from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rambo will actually be voiced by the man whose likeness the character is based on in Sylvester Stallone. Mortal Kombat Pack 2 is set to arrive on November 17; you can watch the unsurprisingly gory trailer for the DLC below.
5. Outriders Delayed The upcoming third-person shooter Outriders has been delayed once again. A collaboration between Square Enix and People Can Fly, Outriders is set to be a co-op looter-shooter taking place in a dark sci-fi world with a heavy emphasis on storytelling and RPG elements. The game will launch with seamless crossplay between PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Stadia, and players who purchase Outriders on a current-gen system will be eligible for a free next-gen upgrade of the game should they purchase a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S in the future. Originally expected to launch this summer and then this holiday season, Outriders is now expected to arrive on February 2 of next year. You can check out the release date announcement trailer for the game below.
