The Daily Moot (1/14/19)News Picks
1. Glider Redeploy Returns to Fortnite, with a Twist
Glider redeploy in Fortnite enabled players to pull out their glider if they fell from almost any height. It was a controversial feature, as it enabled players to take certain risks they could not normally take. Epic Games removed the feature after a short test period, but it is now returning with a twist. Glider redeploy is coming back, but as an item; players will be able to loot Gliders around the map, similar to how they could loot Jetpacks or Balloons, and Gliders will have a certain number of charges.
2. Rocket League Finally Gets Full Cross-Platform Play With the help and cooperation of PlayStation, Rocket league is now to the second game to enter the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program. Now, players on all the major systems can get randomly matched against one another. Cross-platform parties, on the other hand, are still not available. You can play private matches with and against friends on other platforms and full cross-platform parties are coming “soon.” Personally, playing against people on other consoles is just step one. Hopefully cross-platform parties come sooner rather than later.
3. Battlefield 5 Trailer Shows off Lightning Strikes Update DICE released a trailer this morning showing off the Lightning Strikes update, which releases later this week on the 17th. Lightning Strikes focuses on tanks, vehicle warfare, and big explosions which makes for an exciting trailer. Lightning Strikes introduces new weapons, new vehicles, and some game modes. Rush returns, alongside a new co-op mode called Combined Arms. Lightning Strikes is the 2nd of 3 chapters in the Tides of War content series. The third chapter, which is set to release in March, will finally introduce a battle royale mode to Battlefield 5.
4. Datamine Reveals Potential SNES Games Coming to the Switch An alleged data mine has potentially revealed an impressive list of SNES games that may be making their way to the Nintendo Switch Online store soon. The list of games includes: Super Mario Kart, Super Soccer, The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Yoshi’s Island, Star Fox, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and more. There are already NES games available on the Switch Online store, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility for SNES games to become available as well. Fingers crossed for these rumors to be true!
