BorderLands 3 Set to Release On Sept 13th

BorderLands 3 has taken the internet by storm and has gotten just about everyone excited for it. To no surprise it will be coming to both Xbox One and Playstation 4. But was is shocking is that if you have a PC it will be a Epic Game store exclusive until April 2020. This is a big thing for Epic Game Store because they are currently aiming to be the next big PC gaming service.

The trailer shows off a little bit of the new game most notably the new vault hunters you will be able to play as. Of course the iconic Clap Trap that we all love and the new main villains the Calypso Twins. Gearbox will be having a livestream of the game on May 1st so we’ll have a little more information then.

What we do know right now are the classes for the vault hunters which are.

Moze as The Gunner: It seems like she will have a giant mech to help you when you need that extra firepower. Which looks simply awesome!

Next we have

Amara as The Siren: Which gives you the power to be doctor strange and have a bunch of arms to give your enemies the smack down they deserve.

Let’s not forget about

Respawn Fixes A Bug That Scared The Apex Community

Early today a new patch came out for Apex Legends that had a lot of people scared. What seemed like a simple patch the 1.1 version shocked just about everyone. People had noticed that everything they’ve ever done in the game was gone. All progress for battle passes any skins, or characters you’ve unlocked gone faster than thanos could snap his fingers.

One reddit user by the name of UrsineVulpine wrotethis is great, only the update wiped my stats, level, battle pass levels, unlocked legends, skins, crafting metals, legend tokens and refunded my coins for buying the battle pass and reset everything back to 0. Any danger of a fix for that?!”

With another user saying “My account reset is deeply concerning. 221 Hours played and a ton of packs purchased. I’m stumped, well and truly!

Those were just a few people but needless to say it had many upset and worried. The problem was caught fairly quick and the official Apex Legends twitter account said “We are aware and looking into the issue with accounts losing their progress after the update today. Will provide update ASAP”.

The update to the story is that Respawn has fixed the problem. It turns out that they’ve accidently put players data in a server that had no information on them whatsoever. That’s why everyone had everything taken from them. They put all of the original progress you’ve made on your account back.

Here’s an official statement by Respawn posted on reddit.“Fortunately, your progress up until the update was still safe and sound,” reads the post. “We shut down all live servers so we could remove players from the wrong place and roll up the correct servers with your progress. Once we confirmed internally that we had fixed the issue we started rolling out the right servers starting with Xbox and staggered the updates to PS4 and PC.”

So once again everything is back to the way it was, and you can go back to playing Apex in peace.

Halo Fans Are Sending Pizza To 343 Industries

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally coming to PC and the internet went wild. PC fans all over resourced and all was good in the world. Even so much to where fans started sending pizza to 343 headquarters.

It all started when one excited halo fan went on a halo reddit to say he’d buy a 343 employee a pizza if they’d respond. And sure enough one did and he was Brain Jarrad who is the community director. Of course he wouldn’t turn down free pizza so he sent the address to send it too which was in Redmond Washington.

Jarrad went to twitter to share his excitement with the rest of the world. It is something so beautiful and funny the only way to properly tell this story is from the tweets he posted himself.

It was really funny to see something like this play out. Because of pure happiness although it may of gotten a little out of hand. I’m sure 343 is very happy with all the feedback they got.

Turtle Rock Studios Announced Back 4 Blood

Turtle Rock Studios are the brilliant minds behind the Left For Dead Franchise as well as Evolve. They’ve recently announced that they partnered up with Warner Bros for a next gen coop FPS game named Back 4 Blood.

Turtle Rock made it clear that this is not in fact a Left For Dead 3, but something of a spiritual successor. In a statement they said. “Designed from the ground-up as an original, premium title and marries the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful with new features and state-of-the-art technology”. “We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains”. This was said by Chris Ashton one of Turtle Rocks Co-Founders.

They look to build off what they made in Left For Dead in regards of killing zombies in all sorts of fun ways. And look to do it again but in a more unique style this time around. As of right now there is no release date for the game all we know is that it will be for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will have a campaign mode as well as a PVP mode as well.

 

Fortnitemares Is A New Step In The Right Direction

Epic Games has been in the spooky spirit since the start of this season. The latest season has been entirely based around Halloween and horror films/ stories.This latest model they’ve incorporated into the battle royal mode is a challenging yet exciting newish mode. With tons of new content.

For starters in playground mode they put in a couple of mini games that can be found the the edges of what use to be loot lake. They include a few target practice modes and a building exercise to help improve your skills in the game. As well as the stadium that we all love and even a boat because why not!

New challenges have been added for this mode as well; although they all haven’t come out at once they’ll all be released in days to come. So giving you sprays, to even a new gliders that looks pretty spooky. As well as a new skin Deadfire who’ll only be in the shop for a little while longer. The cool thing about him is that he levels up as you do the challenges. Just like a few of the season pass characters.

But for the game itself there is one big noticeable change. The floating house in center of the lake is completely destroyed. Even more than before it was with pieces of land broken up all around the area with the house in a few different pieces. If you manage to look past that two new guns have been added into the game, one being a six shooter which is pretty much a cowboy gun. The crossbow has even managed to find its way back into the game and it’s still as fun as it was before. You won’t have to worry about ammo when using it because it’s unlimited so have a blast; it doesn’t hurt that it does a massive amount of damage against the monsters you’ll face.

Now with the game itself Fortnitemares is part of the normal game modes. If you do solo, duos, or even squads! It’s still the same rules be the last man standing but with monsters all over the place. From the looks of it they’re spawning from shades of the cube, and the only way to stop them from spawning is destroying the sharde. In which they’re coming from. It’s pretty fun because when you’re in a game and can’t find anyone this will keep you busy and entertained.

But one about the monsters is it’s easy to get over runned by them. They’ll destroy your buildings so be careful. It’s easy to get the jump on other players or teams when you see them being chased by a horde so make sure it doesn’t happen to you. If your build does get destroyed when your high up have no fear because they added hang gliders back. So when you’re falling from great heights you can deploy your glider to evade taking fall damage.

Be sure to play this mode before it’s gone because it won’t be here for long!

Fortnite Season 6 Is Here!

The long anticipated season 6 is finally here! There was a lot of people guess what the cube would do once it landed into Loot lake and we finally got a answer with a whole lot of new content for this season. The theme of this is a bit of a no brainer Halloween.

For starters one of the biggest changes to happen this season is the Loot Lake. Now since the cube went into the lake the house is floating in the middle of the air! It’s become a hot drop again since it is offering more chest, and a semi new spot to land. The house is surrounded by all the junk that was under the water that we couldn’t see before. With the inside staying the same as usual. There’s a few ways to get there, one you could just land, or ride the tornado up that’s keeping it a float.

Another big change is the castle near Haunted Hills. The castle is very fitting for the location right next to the graveyards so it gives it that creepy factor you’re looking for in a Halloween theme. There is a few items to grab but doesn’t offer all that much, if anything it’s just nice to look at in awe.

The last big noticeable change is where the cube left its mark. This season got introduced Shadow Stones. Pretty much what they do is make you invisible for a short amount of time, as well as run super fast and go through walls. But just because you’re invisible doesn’t mean you can’t take damage.

Those are the biggest changes to the game some there are a lot of minor things too. For one the sky is a whole lot darker now, with lighting in the sky. Also a nice little touch are some shops are costume stores, and some buildings have Halloween decorations.

Last but not least the battle pass. It’s set with tons of new skins that are worth the buy. For instance they have a more darker version of Little Red Riding Hood, and a werewolf at the very end. Those are just a few of the skins but all of them this season are on point, you could argue that it’s better than last season.

But possibly the biggest thing to happen yet is cross platform was enabled for everyone! So now you can play with your buddies on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and even your phone! This is huge for gaming everywhere, and it’s awesome that it came just in time for the new season. That alone is game changing! So hurry up we only got 9 more weeks till the season ends!
