The Daily Moot: Fortnite World Cup Cancelled
1. Fortnite World Cup 2021 Cancelled
The 2021 edition of the Fortnite World Cup has been cancelled. In their statement Epic explained, “With so much still unknown about what is practical and safe, we do not plan to hold in-person events in 2021, including a Fortnite World Cup.” Following the cancellation of this year’s event, this now means that back-to-back Fortnite World Cups have been cancelled. Despite Epic’s massive commitment to Fortnite esports, only the inaugural edition of the cup has actually come to fruition. Epic says they will continue to support competitive Fortnite via smaller online tournaments, particularly through a trios-focused Fortnite Champion Series.
2. WoW Classic Naxxramas
Naxxramas has officially arrived in World of Warcraft Classic. Launching alongside the Scourge Invasion event, Naxxramas is an end-game raid designed to take up to 40 players and will provide some of the most challenging content in the game thus far. Aside from a well-prepared team, players will also need to be the max level of 60 in order to participate in the raid. You can check out the launch trailer for Naxxramas below.
3. BioWare Heads Leave
It looks like BioWare is undergoing some pretty big personnel changes. Both Casey Hudson and Mark Darrah, 2 of the studio’s most tenured leaders, are leaving the company. Hudson was best known as the general manager for BioWare and had announced the highly-anticipated Mass Effect remaster just last month. Darrah served as the executive producer of Dragon Age and had been overseeing production of the next game in the series, which is set to be unveiled in June. It’s unclear if BioWare already has replacements in mind, but hopefully these departures won’t contribute to any issues or delays for the upcoming Mass Effect and Dragon Age games.
4. Rust Charity Drive
Rust just wrapped up its Movember Moustache charity drive, raising funds for the Movember Foundation. The Movember Foundation focuses on men’s health issues such as prostate cancer and depression, and is well known for their annual awareness event which encourages people to grow moustaches during the month of November. In total, more than 20,000 Rust players purchased the in-game Movember Moustache cosmetic, raising over $80,000 for the Movember Foundation.
5. PAX 2021
PAX 2021 has officially been announced. The annual gaming convention is one of the biggest in the world, particularly for indie games, but much of this year’s event was disrupted by the ongoing pandemic. PAX organizers admit that their plans are “optimistic” but also said, “if COVID-19 remains a major barrier to safely gathering at one of our shows, we won’t do it or we will take it virtual.” As of right now, PAX East is set to begin on June 3, PAX West on September 3, and PAX Unplugged on December 10. PAX South will not be taking place next year and the dates for PAX Aus have not been announced yet.
P.S. We've got a new Rainbow Six Siege event happening right now on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check it out below!
The Daily Moot: Immortals Fenyx Rising
1. Immortals Fenyx Rising
Immortals Fenyx Rising has officially launched. Originally operating under the name Gods and Monsters, Ubisoft decided to rename the game after Monster Energy launched a trademark dispute claiming ownership rights to the name. Heavily inspired by Greek mythology, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a single player action-adventure game featuring the likes of Aphrodite, Daedalus, and Ares. Immortals Fenyx Rising is available on current and next-gen devices as well as cloud gaming services like Google Stadia and Amazon Luna; you can check out the launch trailer for the game below.
2. Sea of Thieves Seasons
Sea of Thieves will soon be implementing a massive change to their future content rollouts. Instead of the monthly updates the game has long been known for, Sea of Thieves will be switching to a seasonal approach. Each season will last 3 months and will include 1 major content update as well as numerous smaller updates and events. The shift will also see the introduction of the new “Pirate Renown” reward system which will enable players to earn a wide variety of in-game items. The first season of Sea of Thieves is set to kick off in January of next year; you can check out the developer breakdown of all the changes below.
3. Epic Freebies
Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free game is Cave Story+, an action-adventure game that pays homage to the classic era of 8 and 16-bit games. You can grab your free copy of Cave Story+ directly from the Epic Games Store from now until December 10. As long as you claim the game by December 10, it will stay in your library forever.
4. The Game Awards Voting
Public voting for the Player’s Choice category of The Game Awards 2020 has officially opened. While most of the annual show’s awards are determined largely by a jury panel, the Player’s Choice award is decided exclusively by fans. The vote will be broken up into 3 rounds designed to whittle down the competition from 30 nominees to 1 grand prize winner. Some of the nominees include The Last of Us Part 2, Hades, Ori and the Will of the Wisp, Fortnite, and Among Us. The Game Awards 2020 is set to take place live on December 10.
5. Liquid Swords Studios
Cristofer Sundberg has announced that he is opening up a brand new game development studio called Liquid Swords. Best known as the creator of the Just Cause series, Sundberg was one of the co-founders of Avalanche Studios but left the company early last year. In regards to Liquid Swords Studios, which was named after the acclaimed rap album from GZA of the Wu Tang Clan, Sundberg said he would maintain the same “no-nonsense, game development-focused approach” with an emphasis on "open world action, explosions, shareable experiences and memorable game moments.”
Support for more formats!
Something I`d love to see in future updates is a support for more formats. For example I’m using my iPad in the horizontal format because it is attached to a key board, so this is what I have to look at 24/7
Me when Using moot on my iPad:
So for the love of my neck it would be really cool if Moot also supported horizontal formats.
The Daily Moot: Fortnite Zero Point
1. Fortnite Zero Point
The next season of Fortnite has finally arrived. Called Zero Point, the new season emerged following the explosive, Marvel-filled Galactus event which ushered in the end of Chapter 2 Season 4 and the start of Season 5. Although Epic has stated that their relationship with Marvel is only beginning, Zero Point will apparently stray from the comic book theme and instead be based on popular Star Wars spinoff, The Mandalorian. While this doesn’t necessarily rule out the possibility of some Marvel cameos, the season will be much more focused on the likes of Din Djarin and Baby Yoda Grogu. On the Fortnite side of things, Zero Point will center around Agent Jones who “needs the help from the greatest Hunters there are.” Fortnite Zero Point is live now; you can watch the story trailer for the new season below.
2. Red Dead Online Standalone
The standalone version of Red Dead Online has officially launched. While the game has been available for quite some time as the multiplayer version of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar decided to mirror their previous approach of Grand Theft Auto V’s GTA Online, giving fans who exclusively want to play the online experience rather than the campaign the option to do so. The lack of a campaign mode comes with significant savings: Red Dead Online is available for $5 whereas the full game retails for $60. It’s important to note that the $5 price tag is a limited time offer only, so if you’re looking to grab the standalone version of Red Dead Online it’s best to do it before the price bumps up to $20 on February 15 of next year. You can check out the trailer for Red Dead Online Standalone below.
3. Dead Cells Fatal Falls
Dead Cells will soon be getting a new DLC called Fatal Falls. The second paid DLC since the game first launched in 2017, Fatal Falls will be one of the game’s biggest yet, introducing 2 new biomes and a brand new boss. All of the new content will be centered around the midgame and can be encountered around the time players would normally run into biomes like Stilt Village and Clock Tower. Along with the major updates, the DLC will also include plenty of minor improvements such as new guns, enemies, and animations. The Fatal Falls DLC will cost $5 and is set to arrive early next year; you can check out the trailer for the expansion below.
4. New Bungie Game?
It looks like Bungie has some big plans in store. Pete Parsons, the CEO behind the Halo and Destiny developer, announced during a recent interview that the studio is seeking to “bring new titles to bear with that secret sauce of what a Bungie game is” and that various “incubation” projects have already been under development for “about 3 years.” Unfortunately, Parsons refused to give any details about what’s in store, closing the interview by claiming, “I wish I could say more, but I think you will be pretty excited.”
5. Daybreak Games Acquired by EG7
Daybreak Games has been acquired by the massive gaming cooperative EG7. Originally founded as a Sony subsidiary called Sony Online Entertainment, Daybreak Games is the studio behind several major titles such as EverQuest, Planetside, H1Z1, and The Lord of the Rings Online. The purchase wasn’t a cheap one; EG7 shelled out a whopping $300M for the acquisition which comes just days after the company bought MechWarrior developer Piranha Games for nearly $50M. EG7 CEO Robin Flodin explained the purchase by saying, “Daybreak is a perfect fit for EG7, we are a family of companies with complementary skills and expertise,” and asserted the partnership's eagerness “to deliver amazing games and experiences to gamers around the world.”
The Daily Moot: Operation Neon Dawn
1. Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn
The long-awaited new “supercharged” Rainbow Six Siege season Operation Neon Dawn is finally here. The final season of Year 5, Operation Neon Dawn brings several exciting changes to the game including a Skyscraper map rework, improved accessibility features, and a brand new operator named Aruni. Aruni is a Thai defender equipped with “Surya Gate,” a unique gadget which enables her to neutralize enemy drones and projectiles. Rainbow Six Siege Operation Neon Dawn is live now; you can check out the freshly-released story trailer for the new season below.
2. Black Ops Cold War XP Changes
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has now implemented new changes designed to make levelling up weapons just a little bit easier. Treyarch announced in yesterday’s patch notes that weapon XP rates have been permanently boosted in both multiplayer and zombies game modes, although they didn’t provide specifics as to how significant the boost is. A persistent bug which throttled the XP rates of solo zombies players has also been fixed, which means that players who frequently play zombies solo will likely see very noticeable improvements to their experience gains. Lastly, Treyarch also announced plans for more double XP events which are expected to arrive periodically throughout December.
3. Xbox Series X/S Update
Microsoft has begun rolling out its very first major update for the Xbox Series X/S. The update introduces a host of new features including dynamic backgrounds, badges for optimized games, and the ability to add existing Xbox family members to a new console. Of these, the new dynamic backgrounds will likely be the first thing to grab players’ attention. There are 6 different dynamic backgrounds to choose from and Microsoft intends to “explore additional styles, colors, and designs” as “fan feedback on the feature has been very positive.” The update also included “the usual bug fixes and performance improvements,” but Microsoft didn’t provide specifics and declined to mention whether or not the console’s often-buggy Quick Resume feature had been fixed.
4. DOOM Eternal: Super Gore Nest
DOOM Eternal just got a brand new master level called “Super Gore Nest.” Often considered to be among the most challenging levels in the DOOM series, many players were surprised by the relative lack of master levels in DOOM Eternal. On release, Eternal only offered 1 master level to most players with an additional level available for those who pre-ordered the game. Bethesda promised back in March that more would be coming in the future. Now, nearly 9 months later, it seems the future has finally arrived. The new “bigger, badder, beefier Super Gore Nest” features “remixed demon encounters that bring an all-new combat experience” to the game. The Super Gore Nest master level is live now on all available platforms and DOOM Eternal itself is set to arrive on the Xbox Game Pass for PC on December 3. You can check out the trailer for the level below.
5. Fall Guys Ringus Dingus?
Fall Guys is adding more shenanigans to the game, this time in the form of penguins and Christmas bells. As with many of the game’s previous updates, Mediatonic is calling on fans to decide the name of one of the key aspects of the upcoming holiday affair: the swinging bell. The options to choose from are Ringus Dingus, Slay Bell, Swingding, and Swinging Belle, but as of right now Ringus Dingus leads the pack by a significant margin. Not many details about the actual event have been released yet, but it is expected that Mediatonic will unveil their plans during the Fall Guys showcase at The Game Awards on December 10.
P.S. There's a new Among Us event happening this week on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check it out below!
Epic verification doesn't work
I'm trying verifying my epic account. in the client said the bot is offline and i have to wait the bot accepting my friend request. Pls fix this,
The Daily Moot: Cyber Monday
1. Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday is officially here, bringing some of the year’s biggest deals in gaming. Essentially every major retailer is having massive sales on gaming-related items today including GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, and Target. Some of the most notable deals include all-time low prices for games such as Watch Dogs Legion ($30 at Amazon and Best Buy), DOOM Eternal ($20 at GameStop), and Star Wars Squadrons ($17 at Amazon and GameStop). While there is certainly no shortage of sales to be found, it’s worth noting that many of these deals will only be available today and “while supplies last,” so if you’re after something in particular, you might want to hurry before stock runs out.
2. Cyberpunk Post-Launch Secrecy
CD Projekt Red has finally explained the studio’s recent silence regarding the post-launch plans for Cyberpunk 2077. Similar to their approach with The Witcher 3, CD Projekt has long said that Cyberpunk will have robust post-launch support and content, with many fans keying in on the game’s upcoming DLC and multiplayer mode. Unfortunately however, it appears that details will remain sparse for the foreseeable future. CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński said that although the “initial plan” was to unveil major post-launch plans during the buildup to Cyberpunk 2077’s release, the most recent delay of the game convinced the team to wait until after launch instead. Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on December 10; you can watch the official gameplay trailer below.
3. Super Nintendo World Opening
The grand opening of Super Nintendo World is finally on the horizon. The highly-anticipated Mario-themed expansion to Universal Studios Japan, Super Nintendo World was originally slated to open in July of this year but plans were derailed by the pandemic. Universal Studios Japan announced that the expansion would be delayed indefinitely back in June, but now it seems that the company is finally ready to let eager fans patronize the park. Super Nintendo World is set to open at limited capacity on February 4 of next year; you can check out the trailer for the theme park below.
4. Epic Freebies
Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free game is MudRunner, “the ultimate off-road experience.” You can grab your free copy of MudRunner directly from the Epic Games Store from now until December 3. As long as you claim the game by December 3, it will stay in your library forever.
5. TinyBuild Secret Neighbor
TinyBuild has officially purchased Secret Neighbor developer Hologryph Studios. Secret Neighbor is the multiplayer spinoff of the Hello Neighbor franchise, which has sold a whopping 60 million copies across all platforms. Considering TinyBuild purchased Hello Neighbor developer Eerie Guest earlier this year, it isn’t particularly surprising that the company also sought to acquire Hologryph in order to get the entire franchise under one roof. A sequel to the cult hit, Hello Neighbor 2, is still under development but the alpha version is currently playable for free on Steam. Although no concrete release date has been announced yet, Hello Neighbor 2 is expected to see its official launch sometime next year.
We Fixed an Issue Causing the App to be Slow!
Good afternoon, Mooties!
Last week we diagnosed and fixed an issue that was causing the Moot app to be slow for some users in the US East region. Now, we want to hear from you all to make sure that Moot is operating smoothly all around the world.
Please let us know in the comments of this post if you're experiencing any sort of lag on Moot. Include as much of the following as possible to help us diagnose and fix any issues!
- Platform (Web, iOS, Android)
- Connection Type (Wi-Fi, 4G, LTE, etc)
- What are you doing when Moot lags? (making a post, typing a comment, buying an item in the shop, etc)
Thanks in advance for any helpful comments you can give us. We will continue to work to make Moot zoomin' fast for y'all on every platform!
I know this might be controversial, but here are some quick ideas from me:
The 2 things I see that cause the most disruption on Moot are follower count and the off-topic lounge.
🔸Remove the follower count (or at least make it private).
Having no way to measure how many followers another user has will most likely stop the infights.
🔸The "off-topic" lounge could be limited to [X] posts a day.
That way Mooters would have to be a little bit more careful with what they posted there.
The app focus could use a change. Most of us got in contact with Moot because we wanted people to play with at some time.
So, the LFG should be the main focus of the app, supported by the content/discussion lobbies.
- The landing page for when you open the app would be the LFG.
- The LFG system would be the one getting updated and improved.
💡Maybe add an "event calendar" for each user so they can prepare gaming events for other people to join?
Phasmophobia lounge maybe?
Hey there! I was thinking if we can have a Phasmophobia lounge, It would be great to have one
Ability to tag people
Think things like TikTok (@username) Yt (@username) Reddit (u/username) discord (@username#0000), we could have something similar to this, so if we had a post we wanted to show someone, instead of dming them, just do something like @username
Add an analytics tab
So we can see things like
•follower count (rise/fall)
•average likes, reads, dislikes, ect
•traffic sources (things like Google search, moot search, discovery, and ect)
•what category’s are we most popular in (example: i mainly post in Pokémon and get most my likes and followers there so it would mark that down so I can see it at any time (as it might change time to time))
•see what the majority of our followers are to best suit content for them (gender, language, age ranges, ect)
•when our followers are most active
And basically think of other social media analytics (YT (studio), TikTok, ect)
What if Moot added like a thing somewhere where it shows all recently (like the newest 100 or so) made accounts that way it wouldn’t be as difficult for them to reach out to just us but we could reach out to them as well? An idea in progress but I think that would be cool.
The Daily Moot: Fortnite Monthly Subscription
1. Fortnite Crew
Fortnite is officially getting a monthly subscription service. News came out earlier this month that Epic had been polling players for opinions about a possible subscription service, and now Epic is making the idea a reality. Called Fortnite Crew, the new package will cost $12 per month and include the current season battle pass, 1000 V-Bucks every month, and a monthly crew pack containing an exclusive outfit bundle. Fortnite Crew is set to go live alongside the start of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 on December 2.
2. Golden Joystick Awards
The 2020 Golden Joystick Awards is officially underway. The Golden Joystick Awards is the largest publicly voted gaming awards ceremony in the world and recognizes a wide variety of video games and gaming personnel each year. Some of the nominees for this year’s “Ultimate Game of the Year” include The Last of Us 2, Genshin Impact, Ghost of Tsushima, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Fall Guys, and Hades. You can watch the entire ceremony live on Twitch and YouTube today starting at 12:30pm Pacific Time.
3. Red Dead Online Standalone
Red Dead Online will soon be launching as a standalone game. Much like Grand Theft Auto V’s GTA Online, Rockstar views the online game mode as the one with the most longevity and stated, “Right now the team is focused on building on top of and into the world of Read Dead Online.” The game will cost just $5 as long as you purchase it before February 15 of next year, after which the price will jump to $20. The standalone version of Red Dead Online is expected to launch alongside the newly-announced Bounty Hunters expansion on December 1.
4. Minecraft Permanent Bans
Minecraft just added new tools enabling moderators to permanently ban players from the game. While single player games will remain unmoderated, this will affect players who use Realms or Featured Servers as well as online communication features such as signposts and books. The permanent bans “extend to all versions of Minecraft” and are targeted towards users who violate the community guidelines in a way that is severe or “meant to cause harm to others.” Mojang says that they are also “working on introducing temporary bans for lesser offenses,” but didn’t provide a target date for when the temporary bans might arrive.
5. Rainbow Six Siege Charity Program
Ubisoft has announced a new Rainbow Six Siege charity initiative called the Sixth Guardian Program. The program will offer a new bundle filled with special in-game cosmetics each season with 100% of the net proceeds going to charity. The first Sixth Guardian bundle will support The AbleGamers Charity and offer a new Doc uniform, headgear, weapon skin, and charm for $6. The Sixth Guardian Program is officially set to get underway once Year 5 Season 4 launches in February of next year.
P.S. We've got some great events happening this week on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!
Black Ops Cold War Event:
Among Us Weekly Event (Week 5):
We have a bot problem. Admins response? Silent.
The web link feature is a helpful way for you to be able to access links outside or inside Moot. I can send you a link to this https://moot.us/lounges/5/ and you can see a preview of it here vvv
Pretty useful. Actually, I love it. I use it a lot. Look at my recent GTA post. I was sharing my content for this app.
We started having this user named Replicate (https://moot.us/users/1604896)around sending tin(y)url links that directed to the ip grabber 7(r)6 (for monetizable vaule) to a steam link (which he claims is his). Immediately I contacted mods about this and they could not remove all the comments. Just a ban. That ban then created more accounts roaming.
I took to sending a message to Dylan to cut this web preview feature off. Now. Not later, now. Because there will still be bots as of now. I told him. And.. What? Nothing. Yes, nothing.
And if you look, one of these users are following Replicate. Convient.
I looked up the 7(r)6 and all the links go to one person. One account. I don't know anything else.
This problem is located in all lounges, except Off Topic.
Agony - https://moot.us/lounges/55/boards/84/posts/5017161/kick-the-buddy-game
Need for Speed - https://moot.us/lounges/255/boards/1210/posts/5016961/car-stunts-game
Among Us - https://moot.us/lounges/379/boards/1784/posts/5013245/the-best-horror-game
etc i dont feel like going over.
Replicate currently has 250 comments from lounges like DOTA, Moot (which you guys 100% gave up one), Destiny, Rust, and other lounges where mods are silent. We need another Global Mod to kind of even that out. 85 followers. He/she is still not gone.
Global Mods should have the ablity to remove stuff from gaming accounts and bios.
Global Mods should have the ablity to delete all comments from a user.
Global Mods should have the ablity to change the PFP if its against TOS.
Admins should be able to answer direct messages when its urgent.
Admins should have Online Status on always.
There should be one Moot account that handles all admin direct messages. How is a regular person know who to contact? A mod, because he/she can't do everything in the book. Then the mod would move the person to someone else. Its like customer service, and I would hang up.
Mods, Global Mods, and Admins should have a feed of reports from the lounges they moderate to make the report fuction useful - if thats not a thing already.
Mods shouldn't have to look towards the dms for a report. Because no one is going to do that every time. I'm not going to do that everytime. I try to dm a mod (ArcticBravo normally) once a week for a bad post. Anything else I'm silent. I will wait until it gets popular and it goes away on its own. The report is just so shitty.
Spam: Spam needs to bounce. If there are no word in the English wordbook it shouldn't be a post. Example : https://moot.us/users/1622862/ comments and posts make no sense.
Asking for relationship status should be deleted. Example: https://moot.us/lounges/8/boards/1387/posts/3856842/are-you-single
Content Creators: We should be able to opt out of Recommendations from Team Moot. I don't care about Off Topic posts.
Giveaways: We should have the add of the regular giveaways, insert tickets and wait a couple days to see if you win. Not instantly. Thats like gambling, and I would like to only spend a couple tickets here and there, not 15 everytime.
Remove any ip grabbing keyword links.
These you can monetize ip links for money. You can make around $1 per 30 views. But using the link preview system means the ips are being grabbed with or without your permission.
How much are you going to bet this is going to get down? 200 moot coins anyone?
Moot we need to talk...
I was holding off any type of posting that directly affected admins because I wanted to make sure that the next update was going to be perfect and I didnt get in the way of that.
I've held off for much too long.
I dont need to say anything else to the admins about my past requests because they already know them.
I'm done playing these games...
The Daily Moot: Cyberpunk Deals With DMCAs
1. Cyberpunk Deals With DMCAs
CD Projekt Red has announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will include a feature that enables players to disable any copyrighted music in the game. This comes in response to the widespread issues streamers have been having with DMCA copyright claims. The studio says that although the Cyberpunk will feature “over 150 songs” from artists across a variety of genres, “not all of these songs can be streamed or used in your video content.” If you decide to disable the copyrighted songs, you can still listen to the non-copyrighted songs as well as a “robust original score” created by the studio’s in-house composers. Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on December 10; you can check out the newly-released official gameplay trailer below.
2. Roblox Ready Player Two
Roblox is currently holding a Ready Player Two crossover event to celebrate the upcoming release of the highly-anticipated novel. Broken up into 7 different pieces, the event is essentially a treasure hunt and mirrors the general theme of the original novel, Ready Player One. The first section of the event is already available but it looks like many of the activities won’t fully start until December 1. Ready Player Two is set to arrive tomorrow, November 24.
3. The World Ends With You Sequel
Square Enix has announced that the cult classic game The World Ends With You will soon be getting a sequel called NEO: The World Ends With You. Much like the original, NEO will once again take players to a stylized version of Shibuya where they will have to partake in another “Reaper’s Game.” Although no concrete release date has been revealed, Square Enix expects the game to launch on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch in summer of next year. You can check out the announcement trailer for NEO: The World Ends With You below.
4. Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie
The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is officially set to begin filming. First announced more than 2 years ago, the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie has endured many difficulties and the game’s creator Scott Cawthon wrote that it was “a real challenge for everyone to come up with a good screenplay for this.” Although it certainly wasn’t a quick process, the team seems to have finally created a screenplay they are happy with as Cawthon announced that “filming starts in Spring.” There’s no word yet on a target release date but it seems that the movie likely won’t hit theaters until 2022.
5. Dragon Age Director New Studio
Mike Laidlaw, the former creative director of the Dragon Age series, has now opened up a brand new studio called Yellow Brick Games. The studio is currently composed of 15 industry veterans, many of whom previously held notable positions at studios such as EA, BioWare, and Ubisoft. Yellow Brick Games has yet to announce their debut title but Laidlaw says his mission is to make “new games of high quality” with a “craftsmanship approach.”
The Daily Moot: PlayStation Game Pass?
1. PlayStation Game Pass?
It looks like PlayStation may soon be getting a game pass of its own. This information comes via Sony CEO Jim Ryan who says there is “news to come” regarding a PlayStation response to the Xbox Game Pass. The Xbox Game Pass, which now offers many highly-anticipated games on day one, has been incredibly successful for Microsoft and nearly 75% of Xbox Series X/S owners are subscribed to the monthly service. While Sony does have its robust PlayStation Now service, PlayStation Now is more centered around older titles rather than new releases. It's unclear if Sony is intending to make the PlayStation Game Pass a standalone service or an expansion of PlayStation Now, and although Jim Ryan said there is “news to come,” he didn’t exactly say when that news would be arriving. Regardless, the prospect of a PlayStation Game Pass is certainly something to look forward to for the many PlayStation fans who have been eyeing the Xbox Game Pass with envy.
2. Last of Us TV Show
The long-rumored TV show based on The Last of Us is finally happening. HBO announced today that they have officially ordered a new “The Last of Us” TV series and confirmed that creative director Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl writer Craig Mazin would both be working on the project. There’s no target release date yet, which makes sense considering that everything is still very early in production, but HBO says that the show will air on both the HBO channel and HBO Max once it arrives.
3. GTA Online: Cayo Perico Heist
GTA Online will soon be getting a brand new heist. Called the Cayo Perico Heist, the new adventure will take players to the sunny shores of a remote island compound run by “the world’s most notorious drug dealer.” Along with the heist itself, the update will also introduce a handful of other new content to the game such as weapons, vehicles, social spaces, and radio stations. The Cayo Perico Heist is set to arrive on December 15; you can check out the trailer for the heist below.
4. Project 007
IO Interactive, the studio behind the acclaimed Hitman series, has announced that they are working on a new James Bond game codenamed Project 007. Although very few details about the unnamed project have been released yet, IO Interactive says that the game will feature a “wholly original Bond story” where players will “step into the shoes of the world's favourite Secret Agent to earn their 00 status in the very first James Bond origin story.” While this news is certainly exciting for 007 fans, it will likely be quite some time before the game is released as it appears the project is still in early development. You can check out the teaser trailer for Project 007 below.
5. The Big House 10 Canceled
The Big House 10 Super Smash Bros. tournament has been cancelled. The Big House is one of the longest-running annual Smash tournaments in the world and has been held every single year since 2011, but Nintendo of America has now issued a cease-and-desist order causing the cancellation of this year’s event. This is largely because The Big House, which is normally an in-person event, had to move online this year because of the pandemic. According to Nintendo, the tournament’s shift to online “requires use of illegally copied versions of the game in conjunction with a mod called “Slippi” during the online event,” neither of which are approved by Nintendo. In their statement, The Big House said that they were “heartbroken” by the news but “forced to comply with the order.”
The Daily Moot: Fortnite Returning to iOS
1. Fortnite Returning to iOS
It’s official: Fortnite will soon be returning to Apple devices. Nvidia announced today that their GeForce Now game streaming service has launched in beta on iOS and that Fortnite is “coming soon.” GeForce Now enables players to enjoy PC games on a variety of different devices via Nvidia’s cloud technology, which makes it so that even underpowered devices like mobile phones and old laptops can run cutting-edge games at max settings with no problem. Because GeForce Now is accessed through a web browser rather than a dedicated app, this means that iOS users will soon be able to play Fortnite on iOS by using GeForce Now through Safari. It’s important to note that GeForce Now games are intended to be played with controllers rather than touch screens, but Epic Games says that they’re working on a “touch-friendly version of Fortnite” which will “delay availability of the game” on GeForce Now but also make the finished product more accessible for mobile users. GeForce Now is available now on iOS, and while players may have to wait a little bit longer for Fortnite, Nvidia says that “members can look for the game on iOS Safari soon.”
2. Far Cry 6 Release Date
It looks like the new release date for Far Cry 6 may have been revealed. Far Cry 6 was originally expected to launch in February 2021 but Ubisoft decided to postpone the release until at least April due to complications caused by the ongoing pandemic. Ubisoft has been silent about a concrete launch date ever since they announced the delay, but as with many games this year, it appears that the date was leaked by an online retailer. The culprit this time is the Microsoft Store, which revealed that Far Cry 6 is now set to arrive on May 25. You can check out the trailer for the upcoming game below.
3. Free Google Stadia Kits
Google is giving away free Stadia premiere kits to players who purchase Cyberpunk 2077 on the cloud gaming service. The free package, which normally retails for $100, includes a Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra, and a one-month subscription to Stadia Pro. Players who already have a Stadia Pro subscription will instead be able to get $10 off the price of Cyberpunk 2077. The offer is available now through December 17 or “until supplies last,” but because Google didn’t say how many free kits were available, players who are interested in the deal should probably act sooner rather than later.
4. World of Warcraft Designer Quits
World of Warcraft game designer Chris Kaleiki has quit his position at Blizzard after working with the company for more than 13 years. While something like wouldn’t normally be big news because Kaleiki wasn’t in a lead position, this particular situation is notable because of the reason for his departure. Specifically, Kaleiki put out a 15-minute video explaining that he quit his World of Warcraft design job because he was “unhappy with the state of the game.” Although he mentioned several aspects that left him feeling “disconnected,” Kaleski went on to state that he thinks “long-term, WoW and Blizzard will be totally fine,” and says that he’s excited to move on from the company and work on “the next big virtual world instead.”
5. Epic Freebies
Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free games are Elite Dangerous and The World Next Door. You can grab your free copy of these games directly from the Epic Games Store from now until November 26. As long as you claim the games by November 26, they will stay in your library forever.

2. Fortnite Video Chat
Fortnite has now introduced in-game video chat. The feature uses Houseparty, a chat app that was acquired by Epic Games last year, to enable players to stream live feeds of up to 4 players in their Fortnite lobby. In order to use the feature, players have to link their Epic and Houseparty accounts and then use the Houseparty app on an Android or iOS device to serve as their camera. Fortnite’s video chat is currently only available on PC, PS4, and PS5, and Epic declined to state whether or not the feature would be coming to other games or devices in the future.
3. Pokemon Go: Go Beyond
Niantic has announced that Pokemon Go will soon be getting one of its biggest updates ever: “Go Beyond.” Go Beyond brings a massive number of major changes to the game such as increasing the level cap from 40 to 50, the arrival of Pokemon from the Kalos region, and the new implementation of seasons. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall will now all have unique attributes that affect things such as Pokemon encounter rates, Mega-Evolutions, and in-game events. Pokemon Go: Go Beyond is scheduled to arrive on November 30; you can check out the trailer for the update below.
4. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Trailer
The launch trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has been revealed. The upcoming new crossover game between Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity combines both universes and serves as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is set to arrive on November 20; you can check out the new launch trailer for the game below.
5. Spelunky 2 PC Multiplayer
Developer Derek Yu has unveiled some new details about Spelunky 2’s upcoming multiplayer game mode on PC. Originally expected to be included when the game launched a couple of months ago, multiplayer was delayed on PC after it had “a bit of a rocky start on PS4.” Yu initially announced that there would be 3 “major improvements” for the mode before releasing it on PC, and now 2 of those 3 improvements have been completed. He expects the final one to be finished soon with online play finally ready to launch in “early December.”
The Daily Moot: Next-Gen Supply Shortages
1. Xbox Series X Availability
Microsoft has revealed some new details about the expected availability of the Xbox Series X/S and it doesn’t look good for consumers. Xbox CFO Tim Stewart announced that the company expects to “continue to see supply shortages” until “the pre-summer months” next year. This means that many players may have to wait until April 2021 or later in order to get their hands on a next-gen Xbox. Nvidia has similarly seen demand outweigh supply with their RTX 3000 series GPUs which are largely expected to be unavailable until next year, and although Sony hasn’t announced anything concrete with the PlayStation 5, it seems likely that they will see significant supply shortages with their next-gen console as well.
2. Tachanka Returns
After spending more than a month confined to the test server, the reworked version of Tachanka finally arrived today on the Rainbow Six Siege live servers. Often considered one of the worst operators in the game, Tachanka received several significant improvements in the rework designed to change that impression. For example, Tachanka now has the Withstand ability and can use his LMG as a primary weapon. For a preview of everything the new Tachanka has to offer, you can check out the official rework gameplay trailer below.
3. Minecraft Star Wars
Minecraft just got a new Star Wars crossover event adding a host of intergalactic goodies to the game. The new content predominately revolves around the original Star Wars trilogy in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, but also includes other favorites like Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. The Star Wars DLC is available now on the Minecraft marketplace; you can check out the trailer for the event below.
4. Overwatch Priority Pass
Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan revealed the upcoming new “priority pass” which will make significant changes to the game’s matchmaking system. The priority pass is designed to both improve queue times as well as reward players who are willing to flex their role. Here’s how it works: players who flex queue will earn a certain amount of priority passes based on whether they win or lose the match. Players can then use those priority passes to “enter a faster queue than you would normally get otherwise” when playing an impacted role in the future. Kaplan didn’t provide a concrete release date for the new matchmaking feature but did say that it would be “coming soon” to the test server.
5. Destiny 2 Insta Kill Exploit
It looks like even more bugs have arisen from Destiny 2’s massive new Beyond Light expansion. Just days after Bungie removed 2 weapons from the game for being overpowered, players have now found an exploit that enables the new Shadebinder Warlock subclass to instantly kill several of the game’s bosses. Bungie senior community manager Dylan Gafner acknowledged the bug by saying that the team “is investigating alternative fixes” but also said that there are “no plans to delay” the upcoming World First raid race on November 21.
We've got some great events happening this week on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!

The Daily Moot: Capcom Hack Exposed 350,000 People's Data
1. Capcom Hack New Details
Capcom has released new details regarding their recent ransomware attack finally giving an idea as to how severe the hack was. Between North America and Japan, Capcom estimates that approximately 350,000 people had their personal data compromised in the attack. This includes people such as customers, business partners, and shareholders, and data such as names, addresses, and phone numbers. Capcom stressed that no credit card information was exposed during the hack, but did say that at least 2 former employees had their passport information compromised. Capcom went on to extend its “deepest apologies for any complications or concerns caused by this incident,” and committed to “endeavor to further strengthen its management structure while pursuing legal options regarding criminal acts.”
2. Black Ops Cold War Double XP
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is currently holding a double XP event to help players grind their levels in the newly released game. Treyarch launched the event as a surprise yesterday and while it was initially scheduled to last just 24 hours, the company decided to extend it to 48 hours following player complaints about the short duration. Double XP works in both multiplayer and zombies game modes and is set to last from now until tomorrow, November 17 at 10 Pacific Time. You can check out the launch trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War below.
3. Microsoft Bethesda Update
Microsoft has finally shared some more concrete details regarding their plans with Bethesda. During a recent virtual conference Xbox CFO Tim Stuart said very plainly, “We don’t have intentions of just pulling all of Bethesda content out of Sony or Nintendo,” meaning Bethesda games will still be available on other platforms for the foreseeable future. With that said however, Stuart also declared that Bethesda games will be “either first or better on our platforms," suggesting that Xbox players will receive some additional perks in comparison to other platforms.
4. Deathloop Release Date
Following an apparent leak by the PlayStation Store, Bethesda has now confirmed the official release date for Deathloop. Deathloop is an upcoming first-person shooter assassin game developed by studio Arkane Lyon, best known as the creators of the Dishonored franchise, and features a supernatural time loop which players must struggle to break free from. Deathloop is set to launch on May 21 of next year; you can check out the release date reveal trailer below.
5. Daisuke Sato Sonic Game?
After more than 25 years at SEGA, Daisuke Sato has announced that he is finally looking to make a Sonic game. While Daisuke Sato is probably best known as the series producer for the Yakuza franchise, he has also worked on games such as Virtua Fighter, Super Monkey Ball, and Streets of Rage. In his statement Sato said, “When you hear SEGA you think Sonic. I'd like to get involved once at least.” Assuming that Sato gets his wish, he assures that his version would be “a completely different Sonic.” You can check out SEGA's complete interview with Daisuke Sato below.
Ideas for Moot!
- Fix the connection and load time (it really sucks ass)
- Bring back the home page (I miss it alot)
- Make an auto-purge system
> What this will basically do it purge all of the lounges every 24 hours while still keeping the posts on the op's page. I feel like this will help out with the connection issues alot.
- Get some more moderators for off-topic
Please add these it will make the app so much better and will keep the app from dying (as it is right now and at a pretty fast rate)
The Daily Moot: Black Ops Cold War Launch
1. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is officially here. The 17th overall game in the Call of Duty series and the 6th installment of the Black Ops series, Cold War acts as a direct sequel to the original Black Ops and a direct prequel to Black Ops 2. Aside from the story mode, Cold War not only includes the familiar CoD offerings such as multiplayer and zombies, but also brings in the next era of the Warzone battle royale mode. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available now on both current-gen and next-gen systems; you can check out the official launch trailer for the game below.
2. Nintendo Game & Watch
Nintendo just released a brand new edition of their original handheld console, the Game & Watch. Called the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. edition, the new console comes alongside the celebrations for this year’s 40th anniversary of the Game & Watch, as well as the 35th anniversary of Super Mario. Although it’s likely more of a novelty than anything else, Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. does come preloaded with a few different games including Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and Ball. You can check out the trailer for the Nintendo Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. edition below.
3. Epic Freebies
Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free game is The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia and is best described as a typeracer with bullet hell mechanics. You can grab your free copy of The Textorcist directly from the Epic Games Store from now until November 19. As long as you claim the game by November 19, it will stay in your library forever.
4. Exit the Gungeon: Hello to Arms
Exit the Gungeon, the arcade-style twist on Enter the Gungeon, just got a new expansion today called Hello to Arms. The update introduces tons of new content to the game including new guns, items, and NPCs along with a brand-new boss and game mode. Hello to Arms is free for all players who own the base game; you can check out the trailer for the expansion below.
I have come up with 2 contest ideas, the first one being a community made badge contest and the community chooses the one they want the most. The second is a title contest similar to the badge contest.
The Daily Moot: PlayStation 5 Has Arrived
1. PS5 Launch
The PlayStation 5 is officially here. The long-awaited, next-generation PlayStation finally launched today, joining the Xbox Series X/S in the new era of console gaming. Like the arrival of the new Xbox just 2 days ago, availability of the PS5 on release day has been sporadic and many retailers have been going through a cycle of selling out and getting new stock over the course of the day. This has been the case for both versions of the console, the standard edition of which costs $500 while the digital edition costs $400. You can check out the launch trailer featuring the new PlayStation-exclusive Demon’s Souls, which just launched today alongside the PS5, below.
2. Destiny 2 Guns Removed
The highly-anticipated Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion just went live a couple of days ago, but Bungie has already had to make changes due to bugs and other unforeseen issues. This includes the complete removal of 2 of the game’s brand new exotic guns: the Rose hand cannon and Witherhoard grenade launcher. The Rose hand cannon was supposed to be nerfed in a hotfix from 150rpm to 140rpm but the fix didn’t work so Bungie disabled the gun entirely. The Witherhoard grenade launcher on the other hand had a bug that made its damage over time effect a guaranteed kill in PvP. Bungie is currently investigating a host of issues with the new expansion so it might be a few days before the guns find their way back into the game. In the meantime, you can check out the new Season of the Hunt trailer for Destiny 2: Beyond Light below.
3. Plague Inc: The Cure
Plague Inc now has a new expansion out called “The Cure.” In stark contrast to the game’s regular gameplay, The Cure game mode will have players attempt to “save the world by controlling the global pandemic response” amidst a plague. The new expansion, which developer Ndemic Creations is calling the game’s “biggest yet,” is available for free for all players who own the base game from now “until COVID-19 is under control." You can check out the teaser for The Cure expansion below
4. No Apex Legends Quads
Respawn has confirmed that Apex Legends will not be getting a 4-player quads mode. Apex Legends design director James McCord announced, “We don't have any plans to release Quads. It's chaotic in a negative way. We needed to decide this early on in testing. Trios is the magic number for us.” While it’s important to note that this announcement doesn’t rule out the possibility of a 4-player LTE mode, this certainly is not good news for those who were hoping for the arrival of competitive quads.
5. Half-Life: Alyx Developer Commentary
Half-Life: Alyx just got a new game mode featuring in-depth commentary from the game’s developers. The update adds more than 3 hours of new content to the game via 147 different “points of interest” which players can interact with to hear the developers talk about “every aspect” of the game. It's important to note that Valve highly recommends players beat the regular game before trying the developer commentary mode as it contains “significant spoilers.” You can check out the Half-Life: Alyx commentary update trailer below.
P.S. We've got some great events happening right now on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!
Destiny 2: Beyond Light Event:
PS5 Celebration Twitter Event:
The Daily Moot: Next-Gen Gaming Has Arrived
1. Xbox Series X/S Launch
Next-gen gaming is finally here. With today’s launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S, the next generation of consoles has officially arrived, ushering in a new era of console gaming. The Xbox Series X will enable players to enjoy 4K resolution gaming at up to 120 frames per second and provides the improved hardware that developers need in order to make more demanding, resource-intensive games. The all-digital Xbox Series S is slightly less powerful than the Series X, but significantly cheaper at $300 compared to $500. Both consoles are available now but most retailers have had intermittent availability so it may require some looking around before you find a store that has one in stock. You can check out the official launch trailer for the Xbox Series X/S below.
2. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has officially launched. The 12th mainline game in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set during the Viking invasion of Britain and has players assume the role of a fictional Viking raider named Eivor. The game was originally expected to launch on November 17, but Ubisoft decided to advance the release date in order to coincide with today’s launch of the Xbox Series X/S. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available on both current-gen and next-gen systems and will be arriving on the PlayStation 5 when it launches on November 12. You can check out Ubisoft’s official deep dive trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla below.
3. Fortnite Monthly Subscription?
It looks like Fortnite may soon be getting monthly subscriptions. No announcements have been made yet, but Epic Games has reportedly been sending surveys to players asking for opinions on a monthly subscription package. The package would include the current season battle pass, an outfit pack that will give players cosmetic items before they arrive in the shop, and 1,000 V-bucks each month. The proposed price points range from $5 to $19 and it seems like player reception has been positive overall. It’s important to note that none of this news means that Fortnite will actually be getting a monthly subscription for certain, but it’s clear that the idea is very much on the Epic Games radar.
4. Genshin Impact Leaking Phone Numbers
Genshin Impact has apparently been accidentally exposing users’ phone numbers. The issue revolves around the password recovery process which prompts users to verify the mobile phone number associated with their account. Instead of providing a censored version of the phone number for verification, a bug made it so that the page displayed the entire uncensored number for some users. This meant that any hacker who tried to steal an account by resetting its password was also able to acquire the phone number linked to the account. Developer miHoYo has since fixed the issue, but it’s unclear how many users had their data leaked before the bug was patched.
5. Cyberpunk Release Date Confirmed
CD Projekt Red has re-confirmed the release date of Cyberpunk 2077 to be December 10. This news comes after rumors recently began circulating claiming that the long-awaited game would be getting delayed yet again. CD Projekt Red responded by saying, “As a rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation” but would confirm “the new launch date of December 10.” While this wouldn’t be the first time that the game got delayed after the studio “100% confirmed” its launch date, this news should still be reassuring to the many fans who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077 just one month from today.
P.S. We've got some great events happening right now on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!
PS5 Celebration Twitter Event:
Among Us Weekly Event (Week 3):
The Daily Moot: PS5 FAQ Reveals New Details
1. PS5 New Details
Sony just posted a massive FAQ revealing “everything you want to know about PlayStation 5.” The list shares “in-depth details about the PlayStation 5 hardware, the DualSense wireless controller, system features, software details, and much, much, much more,” and while many of the points were already well known, there were a few new details unveiled as well. On the plus side, we now know that all games on the PS5 will be region free, meaning that you’ll be able to play a game even if it didn’t get an official release in your country. Unfortunately there was also some bad news revealed, including the fact that the PS5 will not support 1440p resolution and will not allow users to store PS5 games on an external USB drive. The PlayStation 5 is set to launch on November 12; you can check out Sony’s complete FAQ for the console below.
2. Destiny 2: Beyond Light
Destiny 2’s massive expansion Beyond Light is almost here. Although Bungie has yet to make any official announcements, they are expected to host a small end-of-season pre-expansion event tonight in the Tower as a celebration for the upcoming DLC. Once the event ends around 7pm Pacific Time, the servers will shut down for extended maintenance and players will not be able to log back in until the expansion officially arrives on November 10. You can check out the launch trailer for Beyond Light below.
3. Genshin Impact Visual Novel
It sounds like Genshin Impact will soon be getting a short visual novel adaptation as part of the upcoming “Stone Harbor Treasure Journal” event. The Stone Harbor Treasure Journal will be a text-based adventure similar to a visual novel and will have players travel to Liyue where they can complete various tasks and jobs around the city. Players will learn about the game’s 2 upcoming new characters in Zhongli and Childe, and be able to earn up to 200 Urgestein and 50,000 Mora by finishing the event. Developer miHoYo hasn’t announced when Stone Harbor Treasure Journal will launch yet, but it seems that the event will likely start alongside the arrival of update 1.1 on November 11.
4. New Mass Effect Game
It looks like a new Mass Effect game is in the works. During the recent N7 Day event, BioWare announced that “a veteran team has been hard at work envisioning the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe.” Although very few details have been released yet, the small amount of artwork that has been revealed is leading many fans to believe the game will be a sequel to Andromeda. In addition to the new game, BioWare also announced the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a 4K remaster of the original Mass Effect trilogy, which will be arriving sometime next year. You can check out the official teaser trailer for the Mass Effect Legendary Edition below.
5. The Master Chief Collection Halo 4
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally set to come to a close. Along with a brand-new trailer, developer 343 Industries announced that the final game in the collection, Halo 4, will be arriving on November 17. In addition to Halo 4, the collection now includes Halo 1-3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach. Fans have called for the studio to add Halo 5 to the mix, but 343 Industries stated that it “is not currently in our plans for MCC right now.” You can check out the new Halo 4 trailer for the Master Chief Collection below.
Can some one get me something from my wish list
How does wish list work
Okay this probably the last time I’m asking about this
This is most likely the 4th I asked for more Fightjng game lounges like so if there’s only four?
Brawlhalla, for honor , MK11 and smash bro. I kinda thought they’ll be more already since there’s literally a bunch of good fighting games that can be a decent lounge what would also catch more people attention who plays that certain fighting game . I can go on a massive list of decent fighting games that could definitely be a good lounge but I’ll name 5
Street fighter , Dragon ball fighter Z , Tekken, UNIS , GrandBlue and King of Fighter.
We need the fighting game community to get notice more here it’ll make a difference and add new content creators together In a new lounge where a lot of mooters who play fighting games can will free and make fighting game content instead of posting it in the off topic lounge
It would be if there is more but moot doesn’t want to focus on the FGC for some reason:/
The Daily Moot: The Future of Call of Duty: Warzone
1. Warzone Synchronization
Infinity Ward and Raven Software have finally unveiled “The Future of Call of Duty: Warzone.” While the name is a bit dramatic, the post essentially explains how the battle royale mode will progress and work across multiple different generations and games following the imminent release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Warzone will have its own overall levelling system but will also share aspects with both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War (as well as any future title) such as weapons, operators, maps, and cosmetics. For the full breakdown of how Warzone’s synchronization will work you can check out Infinity Ward’s “The Future of Call of Duty: Warzone” post below; Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch November 13.
2. Rockstar Next-Gen Plans
Rockstar has revealed their next-gen plans for Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. The studio announced that both games will be backwards compatible and that the current PS4 and Xbox One versions will be playable on their next-gen counterparts. Unfortunately Rockstar didn’t say whether or not they plan to provide free upgrades of the games once their dedicated next-gen editions arrive, but we do know that an enhanced edition of GTA V is already in the works and that a PS5 version of GTA Online is set to launch in 2021.
3. K/DA All Out
“All Out,” the debut EP from League of Legends virtual K-pop group K/DA, is officially here. The album contains a total of 5 tracks, 3 of which are brand new. The songs are technically performed by Ahri, Kai'Sa, Evelynn, Akali, and Seraphine from League of Legends, but feature vocals from popular artists such as (G)-IDLE, Twice, Bea Miller, Wolftyla, and Aluna. You can check out the new EP on most music streaming services including YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.
4. Kerbal Space Program 2 Delayed
Kerbal Space Program 2 has been delayed once again. This marks the 3rd time the highly-anticipated sequel has been delayed, but creative director Nate Simpson indicated that the team is clearly looking long-term as he stated, “Quality is paramount. We’re creating a reliable foundation on which players and modders alike can build for another decade or more.” Initially expected to arrive this year, then delayed to 2021, Kerbal Space Program 2 is now set to launch sometime in 2022.
5. Capcom Hacked
Capcom has been hacked and is apparently now being extorted for $11 million. Capcom issued a press release acknowledging the hack earlier this week, but new details have emerged suggesting that the attack was ransomware designed to get the company to pay to avoid having their sensitive data leaked. The ransom note in this case claims to have downloaded “accounting files, banking statements, intellectual property, and clients and employees personal information,” with the attackers saying that the “data will be published and/or sold through an auction to any third-parties” unless Capcom pays the hackers $11 million. Capcom stated that no user data was obtained in the breach, but has yet to comment on the reports of extortion.
P.S. We've got some great events happening right now on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!
Rainbow Six Weekly Event (Week 16):
Among Us Weekly Event (Week 3):
The Daily Moot: Fortnite Returning to iOS?
1. Fortnite Returning to iOS?
It sounds like Fortnite may soon be returning to Apple devices albeit in a roundabout way. According to a recent report by the BBC, Fortnite will soon be playable via Nvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service. The report goes on to state that although GeForce Now is not currently available on iOS devices, an announcement confirming its launch is expected to arrive “before the winter holidays.” Because GeForce now will be accessible through Safari’s web browser, players should be able to play Fortnite on iOS without having to worry about Apple’s ban on Epic Games apps. Both Epic and Nvidia declined to confirm the rumors, but assuming the report is true, we’ll likely be receiving some more official information by December.
2. Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Neon Dawn
Ubisoft has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege expansion Operation Neon Dawn. Operation Neon Dawn will be the game’s 19th expansion and will introduce the game’s newest operator, Aruni. A laser-wielding defender with a prosthetic arm, Aruni will be the 57th operator on the Rainbow Six Siege roster, as she follows the release of Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher as codename Zero. Operation Neon Dawn is set to be officially revealed on November 8; you can check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming expansion below.
3. PS5 No Expandable SSD on Launch
Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 5 will not support expandable SSD storage on launch despite the console having an internal slot dedicated for it. It will be available in the future, as Sony explained that it’s “reserved for a future update,” but the company didn’t indicate a time frame as to when the update might arrive. The PlayStation 5 will still support external USB storage on launch, so players shouldn’t have to worry too much about having access to all their favorite games.
4. EA’s Next-Gen Plans
EA has officially unveiled their plans regarding next-gen upgrades and improvements for their games. Some of the highlights include free next-gen upgrades on both Xbox and PlayStation for Madden 21 and FIFA 21, as well as performance improvements for Apex Legends and Star Wars: Squadrons. For all the details, you can check out EA’s game-by-game breakdown below.
5. Epic Freebies
Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. Originally expected to be Wargame: Red Dragon, this week’s free game will instead be Dungeons 3. You can grab your free copy of Dungeons 3 directly from the Epic Games Store from now until November 12. As long as you claim the game by November 12, it will stay in your library forever.
Can we get a notification like that for Moot as well pls?
The Daily Moot: Apex Legends Season 7: Ascension
1. Apex Legends Ascension
Apex Legends Season 7: Ascension officially launches today, bringing several highly-anticipated updates to the game. Perhaps the most notable of all is the introduction of the brand new map Olympus, which will serve as the game’s primary map for the season. Season 7 also welcomes Horizon to the game, a new Legend who helped save the planet Olympus from destruction but ended up losing her young son in the process. Last but not least, the start of Ascension also marks the launch of Apex Legends on Steam, as well as EA’s new cross-platform integration. Apex Legends Season 7 is set to go live tonight at 8pm Pacific Time; you can check out the gameplay trailer for Season 7: Ascension below.
2. Xbox Series S Storage Capacity
New details have emerged suggesting that the all-digital Xbox Series S may be lacking in storage capacity. Although it’s been marketed as having a 512GB custom SSD, it seems that only 364GB will actually be available for games and apps. While it should be noted that this news hasn’t been verified, if true it would mean that just one game like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which has been confirmed to require more than 130GB on next-gen consoles, could take up a significant amount of your total storage space. While the vast majority of games aren’t nearly as large as the upcoming CoD, it does seem that storage space is something for potential buyers to keep in mind when the Xbox Series S launches alongside the Xbox Series X on November 10.
3. World of Warcraft Banning Multi-Boxing
Blizzard has officially announced that they will be banning multi-boxers in World of Warcraft. Multi-boxing is the usage of third-party software to control multiple accounts at the same time, which Blizzard says “is used to support botting and automated gameplay.” Blizzard will “soon begin issuing warnings to all players who are detected using input broadcasting software” as one final warning before it becomes an actionable offense in the near future. The punishments for violating the new policy will “include suspension and, if necessary, permanent closure of the player's World of Warcraft account.”
4. Among Us Road Map
Innersloth has released a new road map for Among Us revealing the developer’s plans for the game. It’s clear that they are very much focused on reducing the “cheating and hacking going on,” but the roadmap also mentioned that there are significant issues with bugs and said “rushing anti-hacks is what caused the bugs.” Aside from the technical improvements, Innersloth also shared some of the new features they’re hoping to implement in the near future, including official game accounts and a new map. It’s unclear when the new map will be released but we do know that accounts are scheduled to arrive sometime in December.
5. Spelunky 2 Olmec Changes
Spelunky 2 just got a big new update which changed one of the game’s most time-consuming bosses in Olmec. Specifically, Olmec will now only throw bombs while players are below him and his floaters have had their life reduced to just 1 hitpoint. The update also included several quality of life changes, such as enabling players to grab ladders and ropes while attacking and making it so that “physics should no longer crush the player as easily as before.”
P.S. We've got some great events happening right now on Moot with awesome prizes up for grabs. Check them out below!

The Daily Moot: Machine Learning to Fight Toxicity
1. Overwatch Toxicity
During Blizzard’s recent Fireside Chat, president J. Allen Brack revealed some new details about Blizzard’s approach to toxicity in Overwatch. Specifically, Brack explained that the company’s use of machine learning has been extremely successful, leading to “an incredible decrease not only in toxic text chat, but an overall decrease in reoffense rates” as well. Although the system originated in Overwatch, Blizzard has now started to implement it in other games such as Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft. Brack went on to say that Blizzard is “continuing to improve the speed and the accuracy of this system” and are looking to make small steps which “can add up to a lasting change.” You can check out the full Fireside Chat video below.
2. AGDQ 2021
Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 has been announced. The annual speedrunning charity fundraiser will look to top 2020’s record-setting drive which raised more than $3 million for cancer research. Some of the games that will be featured at AGDQ 2021 include Celeste, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Cuphead, with several speedrunners looking to set new world records. AGDQ 2021 will be online only and is set to kick off on January 7.
3. Watch Dogs: Legion Corrupted Saves
It appears that Watch Dogs: Legion may have a problem with corrupted save files. Many users have been reporting issues with the game’s save system which has apparently caused several players to lose all of their progress in the game. The corrupted save bug happens when players turn off their systems while the game is saving or don't exit the game properly. The root of the issue however is that the game often freezes when saving to exit, causing many players to turn off their systems to fix the freeze. Ubisoft has announced that they are aware of the issue, but said that they likely won’t have a patch ready until November 9.
4. Fall Guys Godzilla
Fall Guys now has a Godzilla costume. The costume is part of an official collaboration with Godzilla distributor Toho, and arrives in celebration of Godzilla Day and the annual G-Fest Godzilla Festival in Japan. If you want the costume, it’s available for 10 Crowns in the Crown Store but will only be here for a limited time. You can check out the trailer for the Godzilla costume below.
5. TwitchCon Announced
Twitch has officially announced “GlitchCon,” a virtual version of TwitchCon set to happen later this month. Not many details about the event have been revealed yet, but the announcement mentions an “interdimensional portal” and encourages users to “step inside.” Although Twitch didn’t give an exact time, they did say that GlitchCon is scheduled to take place on November 14.
1) Change the Discovery Tab
In the current discovery tab you see "Featured Creators" that moot added a couple months ago. These creators can be accessed very easily and regular mooters, even those starting out arent recognized. I think if someone joins moot and they make 3 posts they should be put in the discovery tab. Just anyone honestly, I think this tab should be used to not only show people that have good traction, but also bad as well. I want to make this clear though, Featured Creators shouldn't be on the discovery tab at all, maybe make a small thing for them but it shouldn't take up the entire thing.
2) Combine "My Feed" into the Discovery Tab
With the addition of the discovery tab it opens up a whole new realm of possibilities. I feel like it wasnt used to it's full potential.
Here is my very first moot concept, I know its low quality but it was the best I could do on mobile.
This would get rid of another tab making it only 5 tabs instead of 6. Also if you realize, Q&A isnt in my concept, isnt that just perfect!
3) Remove Q&A
Usually I would say, "enough said" and move on, but now I have my discord server involved in this and I cant just say that now lol.
The Q&A section should be removed and should've never been added in the first place. If I have a question I can post about it and get better answers faster. People dont really use the Q&A section like at all. Delete it...
Let me know what you guys think...
