To call the Black Ops 4 reveal ‘hype’ may be an understatement. They opened with explaining the mechanics of the general multiplayer game mode, segued to talking about the Zombies game mode, and then finally confirmed there will be battle royale. ‘Blackout’ will be a huge map that draws inspiration from previous Black Ops maps where players will fight to be the last one standing. We don’t know a lot, but we know players will have access to land, air, and sea vehicles and will have access to weapons from throughout the Black Ops franchise, including weapons restricted to Zombies in the past.

  2. Mario Tennis Aces Free Demo Next Week   Mario Tennis Aces is set to release on June 22nd for the Nintendo Switch, but players will get a chance to play before then. A free demo is opening up for Switch owners starting on May 24th, available in the Nintendo Switch eShop. There will even be a three-day multiplayer tournament starting on June 1st. Winning matches in the tournament will provide players with points which can be used to unlock additional characters.

  3. ‘Solo Showdown’ Limited Time Mode for Fortnite’s Competitive Players   Fortnite is innovating yet again with this week’s limited time mode, the Solo Showdown. The gameplay is exactly the same as a normal game but you can expect a higher level of competition. Players will receive points based on placement in the first 50 games they play in the new mode, and the top 100 players will receive V-bucks for their hard work. Expect a higher level of competition than a usual game as there’s actually something on the line.

  4. Take Two CEO Believes E-sports Gambling Could Benefit Game Publishers   Earlier this week, the US Supreme Court shut down a law that prohibited gambling on sports. Although it didn’t explicitly mention e-sports, most are extending the ruling to our beloved games. Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two Interactive, said this week that he believes gambling could seriously benefit games publishers as another revenue stream. The NBA has said they will seek a 1% payout from every bet placed on basketball and that model could be extended to e-sports to support game companies.

  5. Microsoft Introduces a Disability-friendly Controller for Xbox   Yesterday Microsoft revealed a new controller they will be releasing this year meant to assist gamers with limited mobility. The base unit has some buttons and large touchpads on it, but the true appeal of the controller is its capacity for addons. There will be tons of accessories to customize the controller to fit the exact needs of the users. The controller will cost $100 and it is unknown how much addons will cost.

    I actually watched the trailer for black ops 4 and it looked terrible but I might get it to try out this blackout game mode 🤔

    The only problem is there's no single player for the new Black Ops so no campaign

  • Meme_Slayer9000 LV.2 Lurker May 18, 2018, 10:30 AM

    I feel like they are sugarcoating the whole Blackout thing i mean like they did a whole 360 and got rid of single player. all the characters they talked about Mendenz,Mason,Hudson ALL came from the singleplayer!!! these are people that the black ops fans remember fondly however they just got rid of all that now the campaign is meaningless something that used to be a amazing part of the whole package now is nothing more than a boring tutorial. its sad really.

  • JorRaptor LV.3 Lurker May 31, 2018, 09:47 PM

    While I don't really play Fortnite and PUBG, the Blackout modes totally got me intrigued.
