Rainbow Six Siege New Operators Lion and Finka

Developer Ubisoft previously announced that the Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege is going to kick off with Operation Chimera and a lot of new content. Currently, the Rainbow Six Invitational tournament is going on in Montreal, Canada and they revealed the two new operators recruited to Team Rainbow for the event. They are the first released content for Year 3 and is here to help the team fight some unusual situation.

Check out the trailer below from Ubisoft introducing two new Operators Lion and Finka for Operation Chimera.




Ubisoft has a history of adding an attacker and a defender, whenever they release new operators for Rainbow Six Siege but this time they made an exception by giving attacking attributes to Lion & Finka. Besides, previously the developers introduced fresh operators based on real-life Special Forces units of different countries. For Operation Chimera however, they are members of a fictional elite squad named CBRN and are especially trained in biological warfare.

The following trailer clip details the key-features of biohazard specialist Operators Lion and Finka, joining Team Rainbow.




Since Rainbow Six Siege is going to see some odd circumstances this year, Lion and Finka are brought in considering their immense expertise on biohazard. Both of them get to choose from three of their primary weapons and they are Operators with 2-speed and 2-armor. The competitive multiplayer experience will never be the same with these two hanging out with the Rainbow Six team.

Our first Operator Finka hails straight from Russia and one of the best biohazard specialists out there. Using her Adrenal Surge ability by triggering nanites in their bloodstream, she can give a boost to every member of her team that will reduce recoil and give bonus HP. You can even revive one of the fellow attacker as long as they are just down but not out yet. The boost also lets you pass through pass barbed wire faster and will provide quick recoveries from concussion and flashbang effects. Adrenal Surge are up for use twice in each round.

Operator Lion is French and another newest recruit to the team for Operation Chimera, where the team will need his expertise. He scans the entire map with an aerial drone called EE-One-D for potential enemies and pin-points their location with it. If any member of the attacking team even takes a step, the drone identifies their movement in real-time, making it easy for Lion to take them out. Once he activates it as you can see a live countdown on the screen and should not take a step but you can rotate if you want. In each round, Lion can use up his drone for three times with a cool down period of course.

Ubisoft's team-based tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege is released back in 2015 to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As we discussed about them, Operators Lion and Finka will be available from March 6 alongside the launch of Operation Chimera event. Considering their unique abilities, these two new operatives will bring a new edge to the team for the oncoming challenges of Rainbow Six Siege Year 3.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has been based known for its parallel run with reality so far but that thing is changing very soon. With the release of upcoming Outbreak event, the series will step into the sci-fi genre and probably even meet aliens. Yes, visitors from outer-space are about to step foot and the elite Rainbow team will have an encounter with the strange visitors on unfriendly turfs.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak and Space Capsule

You can stop looking suspicious at us and take a quick look at this newly released short-clip from developer/publisher Ubisoft titled "Space Capsule" to find out if we are kidding or not.




Now that we have successfully established that neither Ubisoft, nor us were not playing cuckoo about the alien matter, let's get onto more details about it. Outbreak is a forthcoming co-op event from the third year of content of Rainbow Six Siege. During Operation Chimera, the event was teased and two brand-new operators, one of whom is specially trained for biological and chemical attacks. All we lacked was information on what sort of quarantined area they will be going into.

Initially, these clues and the biohazard sign on the promotional teaser image suggested that the counter-terrorism operatives of Rainbow Six team will be tasked to take down a zombie epidemic but with the new "Space Capsule" trailer, that changes. So, instead of an undead threat, they will be dealing with extraterrestrial menaces. Apparently, the trouble is originated with a recovered Russian spacecraft in a small town of New Mexico.

An alien parasite that came out of an old Soviet space capsule called the Apex starts transforming the locals into hostile beings. As the extraterrestrial threat starts terrorizing the populace, Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka and Glaz will be joined by French Operator Lion and a Russian Operator Finka on a mission to the town of Truth or Consequences. This means, these are the only playable Operators for the Outbreak event and a team of three Operators will be sent in.

Ubisoft has seemingly avoided the word "zombies" in their promotions for and instead are calling them people turning into "horrific creatures" by aliens. There will be five unique types of them with their distinctive abilities for the hot zone specialists Rainbow Six team to take down. Most recently, the developers have also played with the idea of introducing alien threats to another of their real-life like tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands by dropping popular sci-fi character The Predator from the 1987 movie of the same name.

Outbreak offers you Normal and Pandemic difficulty levels, both having different game-playing style. In Pandemic mode, not only you will come across tough enemies but you can catch on some friendly fires too. That makes your communication a vital point of the game and you need positional awareness at all times. Since your target won't bother getting shot a few times before taking a dig at you, start using the blockades and reinforcements from your surrounding environment smartly.

There are three large exclusive maps to explore that are designed for the purpose for co-op gameplay. With dangers lurking in every corner, the trademark "environmental destruction" of the game is still there for you to blow up and create holes in the wall too. Plus, don't forget about the weapons and uniform cosmetic packs for this timed-event.

The month-long Outbreak event along with Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 will begin on March 6 and will draw conclusion of the co-op on April 3. The content will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right from the beginning. So, it's at least four weeks of stay in the Quarantine Zone fighting those mutated horrors. While playing Operation Chimera on Rainbow Six Siege technical test servers, players can try out Outbreak from February 20 before it completely releases though.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox One X

With many popular games are getting support for Xbox One X, it's about time that CD Projekt Red's action role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets some of that action too and they did just that. The developers of the title have recently released an update for Xbox One X which not only gave it 4K support but also have improved performance for the players. Xbox One X version of The Witcher 3 has HDR support in it which the PC version doesn't.

Sizing approximately 550 MB, the update for Xbox One X released now is version 1.60 of the game. The display settings of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now adds two new visual options for the players to choose from. There is a 4K Mode and a Performance Mode. People can either play the game with 60 frames per second or just in a constant 4K resolution if they will. Despite any mentions from the developers in the patch notes, the HDR support aspect will apply for Xbox One S consoles as well.

According to CD Projekt Red, if you are to choose the 4K Mode, you can experience the high definition of 4K resolution at a regular 30 FPS. If excellent visual is your top priority then you can certainly go with this one and the consistency of the frame rates remains even in the middle of an ongoing battle. The Performance Mode however lets you play at 60 FPS and the resolution will be scaled down to somewhere between 1080p to 4K, so that you can have that frame rate at all times.

These two visual options are just the key-features of the v1.60 patch update and there is more to add. The texture of the surrounding environment of the game and the shadows will look much more realistic and better in quality. Since combat is an inseparable part of any action game out there, we prefer the Performance Mode over 4K Mode which is stuck on a constant 30 FPS.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already out worldwide to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from May 2015. Now, get on board with the action RPG vibe of one of the most beloved game in an all-new visual excellence on Microsoft's console. Sony's PlayStation 4 being the best console version for The Witcher 3 is now toppled with this enhancement patch for Xbox One X.

Death Stranding Key Poster Released

If you people are well aware of who Hideo Kojima is, then you must also know that this fellow is a master of developing mind-bending video games that creates all sorts of buzzes and makes history. He's intending to do that once more with his forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive release Death Stranding from his very own Kojima Productions. He started messing with our minds from back in 2016 and now he has taken a step further by releasing a wickedly bizarre trailer.

Well, just as soon as the trailer dropped and everyone was just recovering from having their mind-blown by the pure chaotic wickedness, Hideo Kojima took his personal Twitter account to reveal the new key visual art for the game.



Playing the role of the protagonist of Death Stranding called Sam, actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is on the primary focal point of the two posters. Both of these posters are designed in a movie-like fashion and while there are similarities in them, they are still apart. Like the first one have a close focus on Sam and the baby but the second one, despite picking the same frame has set in slight distance.

Reedus’ character is looking at the distance and probably observing the gigantic alien creatures that have taken two of his team-mates moments ago and he is holding a pod which one of his fallen colleagues dropped moments before he was taken. While the antenna-like flashlight gear attached to his back is fixed onto something, the baby he is holding inside the pod is looking straightly at the viewers.

I say, since maestro Kojima has introduced breaking of the fourth wall in video games, the baby looking straight to the viewer may be a nod to that. I mean, at this point every other eager fan is trying to piece out the clues to make some sort of sense out for this game as Hideo Kojima is playfully dropping them so often these days, anything could just mean everything!

Of course, everyone was happy that they are getting something new from Death Stranding after a long time but people were less happy after witnessing the 8-minutes of wickedness with everything that is involved to the world Kojima is creating. All we can say is that, something fascinating is coming our way and we don't even have a release date but the upcoming PlayStation Experience event may change that.

World War Z Game Announced

Based on the fictional works of author Max Brooks, 2013's zombie flick World War Z by director Marc Foster broke into the mainstream movie race by smashing the box-office and becoming the highest-grossing zombie movie of all time. A huge credit for this success goes to actor Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Inglourious Basterds) for his Hollywood stardom. The franchise is now getting a video game adaptation of its own by Saber Interactive and Paramount Pictures.

World War Z Game Announced

At the night of 2017 The Game Awards, came the big announcement of World War Z video game and the reveal trailer gave us a quick look at what sort of zombie wave players are going to face in the game.




Saber Interactive's World War Z is going to be a four player co-op survival shooter with lot of actions set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by the undead. Players will be carrying out mission across the globe in various locations as Moscow, New York and Jerusalem. Something tells me that we are going to re-visit a few places we saw in the film. The trailer also suggests that there will be situations in-game where hundreds of walking dead will swarm the screen.

Unrelenting Zombie Horde

Developer Saber Interactive has expertise in the field of quality game making and they have already worked on projects like Inversion, Quake Champions and Timeshift. So, hopefully their experience will help create another upcoming blockbuster game. Paramount Pictures wants to give players a unique experience that is based on the World War Z universe and those who loved the movie in the first place are going to love the game even more.

Currently, World War Z will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One once it comes out. The game will test your survival skills with not just the capacity to shoot and neutralize your undead enemies but also to save your skin using barriers, traps and your surroundings. Though no official release date is announced yet, the game is expecting a 2018 outing.

Death Stranding Teaser Trailer

Video game mastermind Hideo Kojima is mostly known as the creator of Metal Gear Solid, which he created during his time in Konami. Following his departure from the company, his fans were worried for sometime thinking if the maestro will ever return into the biz. He did with his very own Kojima Productions and announced of releasing a PlayStation 4 exclusive action video game titled Death Stranding last year.

Death Stranding – Teaser Trailer – TGA 2017

From the very moment players have known about the existence of Death Stranding, everyone was excited as hell as Kojima himself was involved in the project. Next, when the news of the involvement of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) to the game came out, people simply started losing their minds.

To throw the Kojima fan-base off their seats, Kojima Productions have dropped the new teaser trailer for Death Stranding. We would like to warn you in advance that the following footage is disturbing and can be extremely messy for your psyche (I already lost mine a little). So, viewers beware.




The clip starts with showing Norman Reedus’ character Sam stranded on a barren place where he wakes up with two other crews in a secret operation that clearly has gone wrong and one of them is half-stuck under a vehicle. Suddenly the gear on the shoulder of one of his fellow team members starts signaling like crazy for something on their way and as the crew panics, Sam suggests that they don't even breathe. Then we see an invisible creature approaching towards a body-bag near Sam while leaving lizard-like foot mark behind.

The body-bag seemingly melts into some black goo and the creature move towards Sam as he is bleeding. Then as his wounded teammate makes a noise, it quickly gets him and the other crew shot him to spare him a horrific fate. He throws a pod containing a baby to Sam before trying to shoot him but failed and then tried to stab himself to death. Left behind as the only witness of this carnage, Sam sees some extra terrestrial life-forms floating around him and all he sees is extinction all around.

This is so far we know about Death Stranding for now and there is no apparent release date announced yet. Even though people are familiar with the fact that master Kojima likes to play with our head every once in a while, the Death Stranding clip may have done that a little too much considering this is just a teaser trailer. So, God knows what else is up ahead!
