The Daily Moot (5/30/18)
1. Fortnite Adds Shopping Cart to Battle Royale in Update v4.3
Fortnite’s new update brought several things to both Battle Royale and Save the World, but all focus is on the Shopping Cart. One player can push it and another can ride inside while still being able to shoot. Battle Royale players can also now find Mushrooms in game, which give 5 shield when consumed. These are very similar to Apples, which grant 5 health. Mushrooms can be found ‘around shady wooded or swampy areas’ and Shopping Carts can be found across the map.
2. Bethesda Reveals ‘Fallout 76’ After a teaser trailer gave us the official name of the new Fallout project, anonymous sources have claimed the new game will be an online survival game, similar to DayZ or Rust. If the rumors are true, Fallout 76 will have a main storyline, base building, and multiplayer activities. The game is named after Vault 76, an iconic vault in Fallout’s history that was set to open to the world hundreds of years before the other games take place.
3. Pokemon Announces New Games for the Switch The first Pokemon role-playing games to come to the switch will be ‘Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!’ and ‘Pokemon, Let’s Go, Eevee!’ While these games are not a part of the main Pokemon series of games, they seem to draw extensively from the original Pokemon games but with heavy Pokemon Go elements. If you want to start playing Pokemon on your Switch now, though, you can download Pokemon Quest. The radical new take on a Pokemon game looks like Minecraft and plays a bit like it too. Finally, we’re still patiently waiting for the core role-playing Pokemon game that is set to release in 2019.
4. New Sonic Racing Game Releasing Later This Year Sega announced today a new game called Team Sonic Racing, which will release this winter for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game will have single player and multiplayer options, as well as the ability to play online or locally. There is a total of 15 characters, including the iconic trio of Sonic, Tails, and Shadow. Check out the reveal trailer and some screenshots in the article linked below.
