The Daily Moot (3/1/19)
1. Happy Friday Mootimon trainers! So, Pokemon Gen 8 probably won't have a battle royale mode. But, it will have a ton of other cool stuff which we cover in this week's episode of Moot Points with Dylan & Brian. We also talk about Fortnite Season 8, the new Overwatch hero, and more.
2.The next Legend for Apex Legends may have Leaked There have been some supposed leaks regarding the next Legends to come to Apex Legends, but one is more convincing than the rest; an image showing a Legend named Octane looks very legitimate. Octane also visually matches one of the two shadows we saw in a teaser video from Respawn, adding credence to the leak. Octane’s passive lets him heal over time while out of combat, his tactical lets his spend health to move faster, and his ultimate is a launch pad.
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remaster Coming PEGI, a website that gives games their maturity ratings, accidentally posted a rating for “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered” yesterday. It has since been removed from their website, but the damage is done. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was one of the most popular games in the iconic series. The title unfortunately suggests the Remaster may only include the campaign, but even that would still be welcome.
4. Apex Legends Map Leaked a Year Ago About 11 months ago, an anonymous user posted a picture on reddit with the title “Alleged Minimap for Rumored Titanfall Battle Royal Game.” The picture is the map is almost exactly the Apex Legends map, just rotated 90 degrees. You probably didn’t see the original leak, as it had 0 upvotes and only 14 comments. Personally, we’re glad the leak didn’t blow up; one of the coolest things about Apex Legends was the surprise release, and the anticipation for the game may have ruined it.
5. Epic Sued over Save the World’s Loot Llamas Epic Games is currently being sued for the apparently predatory nature of the Loot Llamas in the Save the World game mode. Unlike most “acceptable” loot boxes which only include cosmetic items, the loot boxes in Save the World include weapons, materials, and other resources that directly affect how successful you can be in the game. The lawsuit alleges the game baits players in with a low starting price, only to basically force them to spend money on Loot Llamas to play the game. It should be noted that last month Epic began disclosing exactly what was inside each Loot Llama before you bought it.
