Ever since the game is ported to Switch, people have been asking about "Motion Aiming" using the built-in gyroscope of the Joy-Con to let them aim more accurately. The traditional aiming with the analog stick of the controller is still there but mixing the two options at hand, you can play the game with more precise control. Courtesy of 1.1.1 patch, you can find the "Motion Aiming" option under the setting menu for Controller.

Aiming at your enemies with the game stick can be a bit painful and tough when there are massive oncoming hordes on your way to overwhelm you. So, without any mention of the most-requested feature, Bethesda just added it to the menu so that you can aim better with a simple tilt of the console. Perhaps, they had it planned all along and saw the release of this new patch a nice way to let people have some more fun. Players who gave it a shot claim that, this new update definitely increases game's performance for them.

PUBG Becomes Best-Selling Video Games Ever

Video game industry witnessed a new record-breaker that made its debut in 2017 and it is a multiplayer online battle royale game. We are talking about PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds from PUBG Corporation and many of you may have already guessed that even if you have missed the title somehow, because it's so obvious. The game ruthlessly dominated the market last year and made it to the top 10 best-selling video games of all time.

RELATED: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Hits 30 Million Sales

We are now in 2018 and the game isn't showing any signs of stopping or slowing down on increasing sales. Even though PUBG faced some competition from Epic Games' free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite, the major issue they are facing is the ever-growing number of cheaters in-game. In a last-man-standing shooter of a maximum 100 players, the constant cheats are ruining the experience for everyone.

RELATED: PUBG Anti-Cheat Update For PC Delayed

So far, the developers are regularly banning hundreds and thousands of cheaters worldwide, taken legal action against the cheaters in China and added a replay option to detect and report a potential cheater with suspicious activity. The majority of players who suffers from this are mostly on PC and many of them are with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds till the beginning when it haven't even fixed issues and wasn't released officially.

Most recent chart indicates that 30 million copies of PUBG have been sold for PC and another 4 million sales came from Xbox One version release. With that, the total estimate sales is over 34.193 million and that earns PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds seventh position on the best-selling video games of all time list, beating games like New Super Mario Bros. and Wii Sports Resort. Considering the game started out on Steam's Early Access, this monumental achievement is quite impressive.

RELATED: PUBG Having Issues on Xbox One

Previously known as Korean publisher Bluehole, PUBG Corporation presents PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a third-person shooter for PC and Xbox One. Despite the setbacks with cheats, the game also holds record for the highest number of concurrent players on Steam, leaving Dota 2 at second place. The Xbox One version issues though but that doesn't mean they can't be fixed. With every other game trying to introduce their very own battle royale mode, PUBG better start working on some new maps for the fans.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Hits 30 Million Sales

Last year's massive hit multiplayer online battle royale PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has become one of the most successful game of recent times. The game rules on Steam and its popularity is increasing all over the world like wildfire. According to a recent stat from SteamSpy, PUBG has apparently sold 30 million copies for PC, which is of course great news for developer PUBG Corporation.

However, Steam’s own API shows that the number of concurrent players on the game has been drastically falling down. That raises the question that where all these players are going if they are not playing the game upon purchase and where does it takes the game in future.

What we need to get checked first is that the number of 30 million sales is for the PC version of PUBG only and that does not include the sales of Xbox One edition, which is exceptionally great for a new game that was released on Steam's Early Access. Before it even tuned into one whole year, version 1.0 of the game is dropped back on December, 2017. Considering above mentioned points, it is safe to say that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn't doing bad and we don't need to worry about the game's ongoing progress either.

Aside from that, PUBG has managed to consistently claim the top spot on Steam as the most-played game on the platform. After the game took over the crown over Dota 2, it has never been brought down from the same position. Over 1.6 million people from United States are currently playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and more than 1.1 billion hours have been played on PC so far.

The game had the highest number of participants simultaneously during the mid of January and the peak of that number was of more than 3 million players. Even if we take yesterday as an example, then there were more than 3 million concurrent gamers. So, the concern that is on everyone's mind is that, where are the rest of the people who bought PUBG?

RELATED: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC 1.0 Update #2

There are a few possible reasons that pop into our curious minds on this regard. Most of the players who were initially very excited about the game may have lost interest. Many newcomers are maybe joining the party for version 1.0 of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds but they too are likely to go away soon. Then there is another battle royale game from Epic Games called Fortnite, which is free-to-play and since it's not on Steam, people are drifting away.

Another monumental reason for the drop on the number of players is the strict ban rule against those who cheat by PUBG Corp. If you think that idea is too far-fetched then you should also know that anti-cheat provider for the game, BattleEye has banned over 2.5 million players on this January alone. The shocking news is that the number of bans is only increasing every other day and if this continues, the end of February will see approximately 4 million bans.

RELATED: PUBG Crosses 3 Million Concurrent Players

Because of cheats, many players were robbed of their true gaming experience and abandoned the game. So, with help from Chinese government, PUBG Corp. even arrested a great number of cheat software providers in China. Despite all these issues, the game is still on the highest peak of Steam and not showing any signs of going down anytime soon. So, by cutting off all the cheats to create a fair online multiplayer environment, the developers are actually doing the right thing for the future of the project and the communities it has created worldwide.

RELATED: PUBG May Come to PlayStation 4

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a last-man-standing shooter from PUBG Corporation, available to play on PC and Xbox One for now. In the foreseeable future, the developers can even release the game on PlayStation 4 as the idea is still on their consideration and we would very much love to see that happen.

Erik Killmonger Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

As the whole world is eagerly waiting for the premiere of the live-action Black Panther movie that debutes King T’Challa of Wakanda starring actor Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, Gods of Egypt) in the titular lead role, let's not forget about the film's primary antagonist Erik Killmonger, portrayed by Michael B.

For long, Erik Killmonger has been an arch-nemesis for one of Marvel's most prominent black superhero, Black Panther. Their rivalry eventually found its way to the silver screen with the release of the movie and his arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe calls for a celebration. So, developer Kabam's lead character artist Gene Campbell and game designer Piero Herrera were all game for that.

While Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan's character goes into clash into theaters, Erik Killmonger follows his arch-enemy from the lands of Wakanda to The Collector's cosmic Battlerealm of Champions. Just like the studio has paid keen attention to details for the character and its design, Contest of Champions developers also put the same level of effort in the game to do justice to Killmonger for bringing him into the arena.




The greatest Champions the universe could offer, The Collector has amassed them all and Erik Killmonger is one of his newest collections. He brings the best defensive abilities on the table if you play offense with him. He receives Indestructible Charges when a Special 2 Attack is activated and it lets him resist a Special 3 Attack from his adversary without breaking a sweat or taking damage.

Erik Killmonger is most effective on a fight with the company of Black Panther (Civil War), The Void and Winter Soldier. These combinations will grant you Regeneration and help you get True Strike pretty easily, the latter of which is quite helpful against Champions like Spider-Man.

Disney to Replace EA for Star Wars Games

Rumor has it that, Electronic Arts might be on the brink of losing their privilege of making Star Wars games from now on as they are most probably losing their licensing agreement of the franchise with Disney. Back in 2012, Disney acquired Lucasfilm and shut down LucasArts division almost immediately because they were not very interested developing Star Wars games by themselves and decided to hand over the task to some established third-party instead.

At that time, EA was their top choice for a developer and publisher company to license the Star Wars franchise for making video games. So, an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement was signed by EA on 2013 with Disney and Lucasfilm to create a number of Star Wars games for all popular platforms out there. Since then, EA has released two Star Wars titles; Star Wars Battlefront (2015) and Star Wars Battlefront II (2017).

Electronic Arts then acquired the developer studio of multiplayer first-person shooter games Titanfall and Titanfall 2, Respawn Entertainment all of a sudden for $151 million, while shutting down Visceral Games. Apparently, EA took charge of Respawn to finish working on a Star Wars title that formerly Visceral Games was developing. If the current rumor about Disney and EA splitting over is true, then the fate of that game will be quite uncertain.

RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Controversy Hurts EA Stock Price

In accordance to the most current controversy EA has created by subtly forcing micro-transaction concept though in-game loot boxes in the recently released Star Wars Battlefront II has caused a great stir among the fan-base and they were repeatedly bashed at various social media for this insensitive move. Things escalated so bad with this issue that EA even lost market shares and even missed their sales target at the end of the year.

Despite EA shutting down the pay-to-win progression system for then, the damage has been done and their reputation was ruined. With worldwide fan-outrage against them, Lucasfilm isn't looking very impressed as well and they are already looking for other big-name studios to handle the licensing deal from here. Most prominent candidates among the studios are Activision and Ubisoft by far but there is still no confirmation from any parties just yet.

RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Micro-Transactions Outrage

Even though the exact nature of Electronic Arts' licensing agreement with Disney and Lucasfilm isn't exactly very clear but looks like EA was in an exclusive publishing agreement with them and therefore, any other third-party developer studio can develop Star Wars games for EA to publish. However, given the fact that EA do not work with other companies that they do not own or have some sort of control over, it will be difficult for a company to work on that matter.

The second one, Deeping Drome is beneath Tamriel and the glowing mushrooms on the deep corners of the road ahead.

Elder Scrolls Online is a multiplayer online role-playing game from ZeniMax Online Studios and Bethesda Softworks, released for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Hopefully the new Scalecaller Peak and Fang Lair dungeons from Dragon Bones DLC will keep the players busy and the improvements of Update 17 patch let them have some more fun with the game.
