The Daily Moot (3/12/19)News Picks
1. Fortnite Patch 8.10 Adds Giant Hamster Balls
The Baller is the newest vehicle to come to Fortnite. The hamster ball-esque vehicle includes a boost and a grapple that should enable some sweet tricks. You can find The Baller at outpousts and pirate camp loot stashes. The Baller has 300 health and will protect it’s inhabitant until it breaks. There are also new free vending machines, but they will only dispense one item before breaking. There have also been some additions and improvements to the game’s new ping system.
2. Apex Legends Battle Pass is Not Releasing Today An image showing Octane, the rumored new Legend, appeared on the Origin store this morning alongside a paragraph introducing the game’s first season. The banner image has since been taken down, but this further raised expectations of the battle pass launching today. Respawn’s community manager posted to clarify that the Battle Pass and Season 1 will NOT launch today. Check out this story from the hopeful far away time that was this morning, when we still thought we’d be getting the Battle Pass today.
3. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is Coming to PC Microsoft has finally confirmed we will be getting Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC! The Master Chief Collection includes effectively every Halo game, combined into one. Halo 1, 2, 3, 4, and even ODST are included. Further, Microsoft is adding Halo: Reach as well. Apparently Microsoft plans to “roll out each of the games in The MCC one by one” on PC, so we won’t be getting all of the games at once. There is no confirmed date for when The MCC will be available on PC but it’s on the way nonetheless!
4. Fortnite Introducing ‘Undo Purchase’ Button Soon Epic Games has announced they plan to add an Undo Purchase button to the shop, which will allow users to refund a purchase within 5 minutes. This is to help players who accidentally make a purchase or buy something and then immediately regret it. There already are refund tokens in the game, but Fortnite players only get a few and many have already spent theirs. We don’t know exactly when this feature will be live, but seeing as Epic is talking about it now it will hopefully be out soon.
5. Hollow Knight Collector’s Edition Announced A new Collector’s Edition of the popular platformer Hollow Knight is now available, including a selection of exclusive goodies. The Collector’s Edition includes: a metal brooch and a nightstand for it, a 14-page Quirrel comic book, a Gold Foil Art Print Set, and a physical copy of the game including all DLC for the platform of your choice. There’s also a game manual and a map of Hallownest. The Collector’s Edition costs between $64 and $69 USD based on platform.
