2. Miramar comes to PUBG Mobile PUBG’s desert map came to the mobile version of the game today in a new update. The desert map released on PC in December of last year and still is yet to release on Xbox. The desert map is not the only thing in the new update, as mobile players are getting access to a new season. The new season includes a stat reset, new Progress Missions, and new cosmetic items.
3. Rage 2 Reveals an Exciting First Gameplay Trailer After being officially spoiled recently, Bethesda has now released the first gameplay trailer for Rage 2 and it is HYPE. The trailer shows a post-apocalyptic world with a wide assortment of environments. From dense jungles to barren deserts, the diverse world is filled with distinct factions for the player to interact with. According to Bethesda, players will play Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Rage 2 will release in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
4. Fortnite to Add Another Burst Assault Rifle This Week While we have all been focused on the new Thanos game mode, Epic Games has been developing a new burst rifle to be added to the game this week. Based on a ‘coming soon’ notice when players launch the game, it looks like the new weapon is based on the Famas rifle. It will come in both epic and legendary rarities, which makes it similar to the Scar rifle.
5. Big Balance Changes Coming to Hearthstone Soon Some highly requested and much needed changes will be coming to Hearthstone soon aimed at the top decks. Spiteful Summoner will now cost 7 mana instead of 6, Possessed Lackey will cost 6 mana instead of 5, and Call to Arms will cost 5 mana instead of 4. These are some of the most powerful cards in the strongest decks, so increasing their costs should bring the top end of the meta down at least a bit. There are other changes too, so make sure to check the link to see them all. All changes go into effect sometime after the HCT Playoffs.
