Overwatch’s Doomfist Has Been Revealed and is Now Playable on Test Servers

He’s finally here, ladies and gentlemen. The one and only Doomfist has finally arrived with a bang on the Public Test Realm servers for Overwatch, and he’s just as imposing and fun to play as you’d imagine. The hero was teased yesterday with an enigmatic tweet from Blizzard, but now we can get to see him in action.

Doomfist, in the game’s lore, is a Nigerian called Akande Ogundimu with strong connections to the Talon criminal organization. After escaping from Helix custody, he made his way to Numbani in Africa and stole the Doomfist gauntlet after destroying multiple OR-15 robots at the city airport. He now appears in-game as an Offense hero wielding the gauntlet.

His abilities include an uppercut ability which allows him to knock an opponent into the air, a charge attack, a passive ability which gives him shields when attacking, a ground slam, knuckle blasters, and his ultimate, Meteor Strike, which makes him rise into the air to land on an opponent, dealing massive damage to anyone he hits and knocking everyone else back.

What do you think of this brand new hero? Let us know below!

Overwatch’s Next Update Introduces “Significant Improvements” to Loot Boxes and Highlights

Blizzard Entertainment has just released another developer update video to announce that they are making two changes to Overwatch. The first is the long-awaited highlight recording system, which will allow players to save their best plays more easily, and the other is an exciting change to how loot boxes will work in the future.

The highlights system is getting upgraded with the ability to now permanently save videos on your console or PC. Overwatch will continue to provide players with five clips as they play, and rather than worry about losing them as time goes on, you can now store them forever on your system. You also won’t have to worry about losing these clips before you save them, either, as Overwatch will itself store these top five clips for 24 hours after they’re made. On PC, the quality of the permanent saves can be as much as 60FPS 4K footage, since the game rebuilds the moments in-engine and then takes its time to process them faster than most computers normally can.

More importantly, though, is a new section of the highlight system called “Recently Captured,” which will let players press a key during their games to record awesome gameplay moments—up to 32 at a time! These clips can also be saved permanently to your hardware system, freeing up those 32 slots so you can keep finding more and more amazing moments.

Additionally, Jeff took a minute to reveal that “significant improvements to the loot box experience” are on their way, with the primary upgrade being a drastic reduction in the number of duplicate cosmetics. These adjustments should be “immediately evident” when they come into play, and they should hopefully help players find those new skins and emotes they’ve been after with much greater ease. Of course, up until now, duplicates earned you in-game currency, but don’t worry about this change affecting your income—Blizzard is compensating for the drop in repeat cosmetics by increasing the credits earned from what duplicates you do find, which should provide players with a similar, if or better level of income.

Both of these new changes are now available to try out in the game’s PTR, so go give them a test run if you want to see them in action! Are you excited for these changes? Let us know below!

The Super Nintendo World Theme Park Could Interact With Your Nintendo Switch

Last night we received word that construction on Universal Studio’s collaboration with Nintendo, Super Nintendo World, has officially begun in Japan. Details are still relatively few about this new region of the park, beyond the heavy Mario aesthetic and the newly-confirmed Mario Kart attraction, but fortunately Shigeru Miyamoto was on hand to tease some of their plans and ideas—including the possibility of having your Nintendo Switch somehow interact with the area.

Nintendo and Universal have apparently already been working up plans for how to integrate the Big N’s handheld-console hybrid with the park, drawing from their past experiences with 3DS interactions at the Louvre Museum. As for how exactly these interactions could work, that’ll have to be left up to our imaginations for now. Super Nintendo World isn’t expected to open for a few years now, by the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games at the latest, so hopefully they’ll offer more hints and teases as time goes on.

Miyamoto did offer a few more comments on the park in general, however, noting that other IPs beyond Mario could be involved—there is a reason they called it “Super Nintendo World” instead of “Super Mario World,” after all—and that it will feature more than just rides. The area is planned to have restaurants and shops, and we’ll also be able to see some Nintendo-themed shows there. Miyamoto also mentioned that the Big N intends to have more such collaborations in the future, allowing other entities to provide the raw manpower and infrastructure for supporting these ventures and leaving Nintendo to worry only about the quality.

Are you excited for Super Nintendo World? What sort of interactions would you like to see with the Switch? Will the console still be popular enough when the park opens for such interactivity to be a reasonable feature? Let us know below!

Overwatch’s Next New Map is Set on the Moon, and You Can Try it Out Right Now

Blizzard Entertainment has just added a new Assault map to the Public Test Realm servers for their shooter Overwatch. The map is set in the Horizon lunar base, where the hero Winston grew up before coming to Earth, and features a new low-gravity area where players can flank the defenders.

In the lore, the colony was used to test genetic therapy on apes, gorillas, and chimps to give them enhanced intelligence (think Planet of the Apes but on the moon). However, an unknown emergency caused the base to be abandoned, with Winston escaping to Earth and later helping form the Overwatch organization. Blizzard released some mock emails from base personnel discussing mysterious happenings regarding the apes (in particular, one called Hammond; keep an eye on this), as well as the trailer above.

As well as a low-gravity outdoor area, the map also features Winston’s room from the Recall animated short, a working telescope which can be used to view Earth, and a bunch of different rooms and flanking routes. Be aware, however, that at the time of writing the PTR is suffering from memory leak issues that can crash the game on lower-spec systems, so you may want to hold off on visiting the Moon for a while!

Pokémon GO is Cracking Down on Cheaters by Hiding Rare Pokémon From Them

Niantic, the developer behind the popular mobile game Pokémon GO, has brought in a new measure to deal with cheating players. Anyone who is detected using third-party software to gain an advantage in the game will find that rarer Pokémon have been hidden from them in the game.

In effect, this is a sort of “shadowban” for those players that are using third-party apps to learn where certain Pokémon can be found, for example. Any account that is suspected of such activity will now receive a warning like the one below, which encourages them to change their password and stop using these extra services.

Here is what Niantic had to say on the subject:

“Niantic is committed to maintaining the state of Pokémon GO and our community of Trainers. People who violate the Pokémon GO Terms of Service (including by using third party software and other cheats) may have their gameplay affected and may not be able to see all the Pokémon around them. While we cannot discuss the systems implemented, we can confirm that we are constantly refining new ways to ensure the integrity of the game in order to keep it fun and fair for all players.” — Niantic

Dontnod Entertainment Has Announced a New Life is Strange Title

Dontnod Entertainment, the games studio behind the critically acclaimed Life is Strange, has just announced that they are now developing a sequel. Speaking on their Tumblr blog, the studio said “we can indeed confirm that the original Life is Strange team at DONTNOD are working on a brand new Life is Strange game.”

There are no details as to whether the new game will pick up where the last one left off or whether any of the original voice cast will return. The game will not be appearing at E3 2017 either, so we should probably keep an eye on any announcements coming out of the studio.

Overwatch Players Destroyed Over 8.5 Billion Enemies in the Uprising Event Brawl

Blizzard has just released an infographic showing just how much went on during Overwatch‘s Uprising event, which concluded just over a week ago. Among other interesting statistics, players completed 145,506,333 runs of the Uprising brawl (the Null Sector bots won roughly 54% of the time, sadly), destroyed over 8.5 billion Null Sector Omnics, and unlocked 815,548,819 event lootboxes.

Aside from those huge numbers, there are several more interesting and impressive stats to be found here. Average winrates are one of these, with players achieving victory from 75% of games in Easy mode but just over half of one percent in Legendary mode. Meanwhile, the most Omnics destroyed by a single player was a mindblowing 2,360 by a PlayStation 4 player (I don’t know how they managed that). The fastest completion time for the mode was 10 minutes and 48 seconds in Easy mode, while someone managed to speed through Legendary mode and complete it in exactly 14 minutes. You can see the full infographic and all the extra details it contains in the gallery below!

The Last Major Writer for the Half-Life Series Has Left Valve

For any of you who still hold out some hope of there ever being a third installment to the acclaimed Half-Life series, this might be some bad news. Chet Faliszek, the last remaining primary writer for the series, has just left Valve for new opportunities after twelve years on the job.

Over his career at Valve, Faliszek contributed to the writing of both Episode DLC packs for the Half-Life 2 series, both Portal games, and both Left 4 Dead games. He said that his departure from the company was “nothing exciting or drama filled. I worked there 12 years, shipped a bunch of great games and some amazing hardware and wanted to change things up.” Chet’s change of scenery means that all of the primary writing talent involved in the Half-Life series is now gone from Valve, and the fabled Half-Life 3 is proving even more elusive than before.

We wish Faliszek well in whatever path he heads down next! Even so, do you think our prayers for Half-Life 3 will ever be answered without the talents of Chet and his fellow writers? Is Half-Life 3 doomed to be a dream forever? Let us know in the comments below!

Heroes of the Storm’s Nexus Challenge 2.0 Will Unlock a New Police Skin for Overwatch’s D.Va

One of Overwatch‘s heroes, the Korean gaming prodigy turned meka pilot known as D.Va, is making her way to one of Blizzard’s other online games, Heroes of the Storm. She will also be getting a new police-themed skin in Overwatch as part of the Nexus Challenge 2.0.

Overwatch’s Genji and Hanamura Map Are Coming to Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard is bringing some elements from Overwatch to Heroes of the Storm in a future update! The cyborg ninja known as Genji will be available as a new hero, while an altered version of the Hanamura control point map (which is also Genji’s ancestral home in the Overwatch lore) will become a new map.

The HOTS version of Genji utilizes modified forms of his Swift Strike, Deflect, and Dragonblade abilities, as well as a new ability called X-Strike which deals damage in a cross pattern across a large area. The Hanamura map is to be the game’s first payload-based map, with teams pushing payloads across the map to damage the enemy core. It borrows multiple assets and inspirations from the existing Overwatch map. Genji is the fourth Overwatch hero to be added to HOTS after Lucio, Tracer, and Zarya.

Both the hero and map are currently in beta right now, with no official release date as of yet. Are you going to try out Genji in HOTS when he goes live? Let us know below!

Overwatch’s New “Uprising” PvE Event is Now Live

“Uprising,” the latest event for Blizzard’s Overwatch, is now live, pitting teams of four players against waves of Omnic AIs as they attempt to retake King’s Row from the Null Sector. In addition to the new mode, there are a ton of new skins, sprays, emote, voice lines, and highlight intros.

Players can take control of Torbjorn, Mercy, Reinhardt, and Tracer in a scenario set seven years before the current day in-universe. The Omnics of Null Sector have taken over King’s Row, blasting apart buildings and installing air defense guns that the heroes must capture to allow a payload to be dropped, which then blows up a door to the final section, where Bastions and Orisas must be destroyed to win. There are three difficulties—Hard, Expert, and Legendary—and beating each of them grants exclusive sprays. There is a second version of the mode where players can take any hero they choose, but this lacks the achievement sprays.

There are also new skins for multiple heroes, including a partially cybernetic Genji, a pre-transformation Widowmaker, a young shaven Torbjorn, and more. Which skins have you gotten so far? Let us know in the comments!

A Leaked Trailer Shows Off Tons of Stuff for Overwatch’s Next Event, “Insurrection”

Overwatch is one heck of an online shooter, and it’s kept its status high in many gamers’ minds through the use of special events, as well as a constant stream of new details on the game’s world and lore. Those two aspects are about to collide, judging by a new French trailer that’s just been leaked, which shows off a bunch of stuff regarding an upcoming player-vs-AI event titled “Insurrection.” Set seven years before the events of Overwatch, the event looks to feature a city under attack by Omnics, as well as a number of new skins and other unlockables for multiple characters.

Insurrection, which will run from April 11th until May 1st, takes place in a largely ruined version of King’s Row that is under attack from waves of purple Omnics. Much like the Halloween event last year, players look to have a selection of four heroes to fight the emerging threat (in this instance, Torbjorn, Reinhardt, Tracer, and Mercy, all in snazzy blue uniforms). It is unclear as of yet what the objective of the new mode will be, but it will likely involve defending some section of the map from the new Omnics, who now have shield-carrying units, dog-like scouts, and more.

Now, to the skins: as you can see in the gallery below, we’ve got Blackwatch McCree (m’lady), a non-blue Widowmaker (with bright blue hair for some reason), a partially cybernetic Genji (what did Hanzo
do to him?!), a sort of gas-station Torbjorn (sans beard!), and a purple Bastion (still evil IMO). In addition, there are dozens of new sprays and voicelines to collect, many of which feature bits of lore from when the Overwatch organization was still active.

Are you excited for this event? Which skins are you going to make sure to get? Let us know below!

Overwatch’s Director Discusses Why It Would be Difficult to Bring the Game to Switch

The game director for Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch, Jeff Kaplan, recently gave an interview to the UK Sunday Express where he discussed the idea of bringing the game to Nintendo’s Switch console. Unfortunately, while the team tries to remain “open-minded,” he admitted that this possibility is unlikely due to the technical challenges such a version would create.

Primarily, because the game’s minimum specifications are designed for more powerful systems like PCs, the Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4, it would require Blizzard’s development team to ”
revisit performance” in order to get the less powerful Switch to run the game at a playable level. In addition, they are currently coordinating patches on three different platforms, something which is already difficult to keep in check. Adopting the Switch as a fourth console would add yet another layer to that task. Jeff did stress that they were still open to bringing the game to new platforms; it is simply a case of the Switch not being powerful enough.

“I think the problem is, we’ve really targeted our min spec in a way that we would have to revisit performance and how to get on that platform.

“And also, it’s already challenging right now maintaining three platforms and patching simultaneously, which is something that we’ve finally been able to achieve. Our first couple of patches would come out on PC first and then later on the consoles. And a lot of that is because you’re working with Microsoft and Sony, and you want to be compliant to their ecosystems. Adding a third ecosystem to that just adds a lot of complexity for us, as well.

“But I always like to tell people we’re very open-minded about what platforms we could be on. Just because we’re not on a platform right now, it doesn’t mean we won’t reconsider it in the future, so we stay aware of all these things.” — Jeff Kaplan

A Player Sent Their Switch Console to Nintendo for Repair and Had Their Save Data Wiped

According to a recent article by GamesRadar writer Anthony Agnello, he reportedly sent his Switch console to Nintendo to fix an error message that prevented its use, only to find that, when returned, its saved game data had been wiped. He is now warning other customers that if their console needs to be repaired, they may have to say goodbye to their save files.

The data was apparently wiped deliberately as part of the repair process. The console had “bricked” (meaning its software was completely inoperable by the user) and, as a result, needed a total system reset. Agnello had over 50 hours logged on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the console’s flagship game. Unfortunately, whatever error had occurred made the data unreadable, according to an email sent by Nintendo, so they were unable to restore the files afterwards.

Playtonic is Looking to Get Yooka-Laylee on the Nintendo Switch As Soon as Possible

Playtonic Games is looking to get their debut title Yooka-Laylee released on the Nintendo Switch console as quickly as they can, according to a recent GameReactor interview with communications director Andy Robinson. In the interview, Andy said that Playtonic is “working directly with Nintendo to get it out as soon as possible for our many fans and Kickstarter backers on that platform.”

When asked how he felt about the potential success of a Switch release, Andy replied that it was too early to tell but that they were big Nintendo fans and were very excited to be working on the project.

“It’s a bit too early to go into specifics with this version, but rest assured we’re working directly with Nintendo to get it out as soon as possible for our many fans and Kickstarter backers on that platform. We’re big Nintendo fans here, so it’s very exciting to be working on Nintendo Switch.” — Andy Robinson

The game, which raised an astounding £2.1 million in crowdfunding revenue from more than 80,000 backers on Kickstarter, was originally due to be developed for the older Wii U console (along with all its other versions), but Playtonic scrapped that in favor of the newer and more powerful Switch. It is considered a spiritual successor to Rare’s 1998 N64 title Banjo-Kazooie; in fact, a majority of Playtonic’s lead staff originally worked at Rare. We’ll have to wait and see how well Yooka-Laylee lives up to the standards set by that team’s classic games and to the hopes of its many backers.

Bungie Has Just Announced Destiny 2

Bungie has just officially announced Destiny 2, the sequel to their 2014 sci-fi shooter Destiny, on Twitter. The new game has been hinted at for some time with leaked posters and rumors of a September launch. These have proven to be legit, and we can now expect it to release later this year. Specifically, the game will be releasing on September 8th, 2017, almost three years to the day from its predecessor’s launch date. A leaked poster, which you can see in the gallery below, also mentions a beta that will be made available on PlayStation 4 first, although no dates for that have been given yet.

A small thing to note is something
a Twitter user has pointed out—that the city burning in the poster is actually The Last City, the metropolis above which the Traveler floats in Destiny. Could this mean that some catastrophe is about to hit the city in the sequel? Or is it just artistic license?

GameStop Thinks The Switch’s Phenomenal Sales Could Eclipse the Wii’s Figures

Nintendo’s latest console, the Nintendo Switch, just recently launched, and fans of the Big N are pretty excited about it and its possibilities. It turns out that they aren’t alone in this thrill: the fervor for the new console is so strong that, according to GameStop’s senior director of merchandising, Eric Bright, the Switch could be on pace to outsell even the Wii. The console has been sold out in multiple outlets since release, and so GameStop believes it could eventually eclipse the beefy 100 million units the Wii sold over its decade-long lifespan.

“The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal. I can’t give straight numbers, but I can say we’re seeing one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories to a device that we’ve seen in a long time.”

Eric Bright

In a conference call yesterday, GameStop reiterated these sentiments, providing further details to back up this stance. Desire has been incredibly strong for the Switch, with each shipment thus far selling out in mere hours, and they expect that this level of demand will continue for the entirety of 2017. Software and accessories have been equally sought after, with the attach rate of such things averaging out to 5.5 per console, and the company firmly believes the Switch has “real potential to be Wii-like in its ability to expand the category from core to broad audiences.”

Nintendo has already
doubled the production of the console in response to the strong demand, and they’ve reported that the Switch is the fastest-selling home console in the company’s history so far. Bright has also said that its popularity is mainly due to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the company reported yesterday that the attach rate of consumers who buy both the Switch and Zelda is nearly 1:1. According to Bright, “because of the popularity of Zelda, which is one of my top picks, we’re putting together a Zelda bundle of hardware and accessories for customers to pick up online.”

Overwatch’s Director is Cool With the Idea of Letting Players Build Their Own Maps

Fans have proven to be quite pleased with the offerings of Blizzard’s first-person shooter Overwatch, but that doesn’t mean there are no further features that they’d like to see added. In some recent responses to users on the game’s Battle.net forums, director Jeff Kaplan commented on a few of these desires, including that of a map editor being added to the game. Kaplan said that he is “extremely open-minded” about the possibility, but he also warned that it will likely be some time before it happens.

According to the director, this idea is on the development team’s “long-term map.” They would love to provide such a feature to fans, but with how new the game’s engine is, developing a map editor for Overwatch would be relatively unfamiliar territory and thus require a great deal of work.

“We are extremely open-minded about releasing a map editor for Overwatch someday. But because Overwatch was made with a brand new engine, this is not a small task or one which can happen any time soon. We have this on our long-term road map and believe heavily in user-made content. But there are many challenges ahead of us and it will be a very long road before our editor can be made available to the public.”
— Jeff Kaplan

Aside from the map editor discussion, Jeff
also mentioned that a way to export Play of the Game clips from
Overwatch without using external software will be live before the end of the summer. Hooray!

Overwatch’s Next Hero is Officially Launching Next Week

Blizzard Entertainment has just posted a new Overwatch video where the developers discussed the inspirations behind Orisa, the game’s newest hero. In the video, we see how the hero’s abilities were developed, what the developers envisaged her role to be, and more—including, finally, the official date of her deployment into the game’s main servers.

Orisa is the third character to be added post-launch, after Ana and Sombra, and she will be leaving the
Overwatch test servers and going into the live version this coming Tuesday (21st March). According to the video, she was originally playtested using a modified model of Zarya carrying Bastion’s minigun (a terrifying thought!). Her role in the game, however, is planned to be more akin to Reinhardt, as Orisa takes on the role of a supporting “anchor” tank character with her deployable shields and a damage-boosting ultimate ability.

“Reinhardt is one of the only characters that can can really stand his ground, mark a spot, and move with his team real slow. So we thought there was a great opportunity there for another option.”

No Man’s Sky Just Got an Enormous Update in Hopes of Earning Back Players

Hello Games, creator of the somewhat notorious space exploration game No Man’s Sky, has added a new update that brings several new elements to the gameplay experience. These include ground vehicles, improved graphics, support for PlayStation 4 Pro, and various new survival-oriented modes.

The trailer for all this new content shows off the Roamer, a rover-like vehicle capable of traversing rough terrain extremely quickly and allowing players to explore planets much more quickly; the Nomad, a hovering scout vehicle that is even faster than the Roamer; and the Colossus harvester, which can carry multiple resources to facilitate long mining missions. Existing spaceships can now be specialized to fill specific roles as well.

Additionally, there are now multiple modes to choose from, including the normal baseline mode, a survival mode, and a permadeath mode where players only have one life. The game also now has support for the PS4 Pro, with improved graphics for lighting, ambient occlusion, and 4K resolution. There is a photography mode as well which allows players to change the time of day and add filters to the images they take.
