World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Expansion Announced

Blizzard announces Shadowlands expansion for fantasy MMORPG title World of Warcraft at BlizzCon 2019.

During opening celebrations event at BlizzCon 2019, developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment has announced upcoming Shadowlands expansion for massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft.

Despite being fastest-selling WoW expansion, Battle for Azeroth failed to keep up hype, probably because of recently launched WoW Classic but Blizzard plans on bringing more content update for their players anyway.

In a newly released cinematic trailer, Blizzard builds up premise of Shadowlands, next chapter in WoW lore.

Sylvanas Windrunner walks up to Icecrown citadel to confront Lich King Bolvar Fordragon sitting on his Frozen Throne. Realizing her intent, the lord of Scourge led all of his forces after Banshee Queen who has broke free of his control.

Sylvanas successfully takes them all down and eventually brought Bolvar down on his knees before defeating him and break his Helm of Domination, opening a portal to realm of life and death to unleash its nightmarish horrors.

Battle for Azeroth allowed players a level cap of 120 that many could reach to but rather than going any further, WoW will be capping levels at 60 and everyone currently at max level will start their journey of Shadowlands from level 50.

This action is to ease up leveling process and make players feel rewarded for ongoing progress. Instead of going over all sorts of different content, you can simply play up Mists of Pandaria expansion as a newcomer and go to level 50.

Though a huge chunk of player community is busy playing WoW Classic mode these days, Blizzard is still keen to add more content update each year ever since it was released and has a considerable size of player base even this day.

Therefore, revelation of Shadowlands was nothing sort of a surprise as WoW has been dropping hints for its next expansion for some time. Ahead of BlizzCon 2019, a leak from Blizzard gear store has showed glimpse of new Lich King, Bolvar.

On top of upcoming gameplay overhaul, a new continent will come to play as well as NPC factions to join up. Realm of Death is not linked to physical plane like Kul Tiras or Zandalar from past expansions, so it may take a weird route.

Shadowlands has always been a part of World of Warcraft lore outside of physical universe from its very beginning as this is where players go after death but its dark realm has never been merged with Azeroth, up until now.

RELATED: Death Stranding Launch Trailer

There is Tower of the Damned for class-specific challenges, which will play out in roguelike fashion. Now that Bolvar is dethroned, every race can have a Death Knight and Banshee Sylvanas may appear as a raid boss.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion is currently available to pre-order and is scheduled for a 2020 release window. Blizzard will have a zone restricted for new players only where they can learn the basics before entering world of Azeroth.

Fortnite: Save the World October 2019 Roadmap

Epic Games teases most challenging battle ever coming to upcoming roadmap for Fortnite: Save the World.

From the period of its inception, people are so caught up with free-to-play online shooter Fortnite Battle Royale that they often forget about original "Save the World" game mode of Fortnite cooperative shooter-survival game.

While developer/publisher Epic Games was pretty busy pulling their biggest marketing stunt for official reveal of Fortnite Chapter 2, they clearly didn't forget about where it all began and has released a new roadmap for STW recently.

RELATED: Fortnite Season 10 Ends With a Bang!

In coming weeks, version 11 update will bring in a number of significant changes from October 15. Since we are on Halloween month and players can definitely look forward to some themed event Fortnitemares by the end of October.

Players who are away from keyboard will be kicked off from sessions much sooner than before. Those who contribute less in objectives will receive lesser rewards compared to other teammates who actually are doing their part.

RELATED: Fortnite Chapter 2 Update Live Now

Players should beware as following content update V11.20, Mythic Storm King will return for some epic boss fight. There will be new challenges, gameplay mechanics and enrage timer to make your battles most difficult in STW mode.

However, those who are brave enough to take on this challenge can earn exclusive weapons of Storm King. They will unlock special behaviors, let you shoot projectiles, charge laser blasts and even summon meteors on Husk enemies.

When Fortnite Battle Royale map and everything else was sucked into a black hole, Save the World also became unavailable to digital storefronts but now that Fortnite Chapter 2 is kick-started, STW got its relaunch as well.

Although there was rumors earlier that Fortnite: Save the World may go free-to-play like battle royale mode but so far, no noticeable change made by Epic Games in upcoming roadmap suggests that is a possibility for rest of 2019 at least.

Epic Games added two outfits for Batman; one seems to be traditional gray-blue design from New 52 comics and another is from Batman Begins. One of your in-game rewards will be a Catwing Glider, which can only remain till October 1.

Newest weapons additions for players are a Batman Grapnel Gun and Explosive Batarangs to throw at. You can deploy gliders for unlimited times while flying through Gotham City but Grapnel Gun is 10-shot only and only work on solid surface.

Batarang Explosives will do 50 damage to other players and 200 damage on any solid environment. Apparently, there is also a Joker-themed item that players found but no clues are out yet on if it will be tied to any event challenges or not.

Epic Games may even attempt to sneak in some clue for where upcoming Season 11 is headed to. So, wear the iconic cape and cowl to go out saving Gotham City riding a Bat-glider before Fortnite X Batman limited time crossover ends.

Final Fantasy XIV Crosses 16 Million Players

Just ahead of Shadowbringers expansion release, MMORPG title Final Fantasy XIV crosses 16 million players mark.

Though massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy XIV was heavily bashed over for a series of issues, developer/publisher Square Enix took time working on it and replaced it with FFXIV: A Realm Reborn in 2013.

Initially launched for PC and PlayStation 3, FFXIV eventually came to Mac and PlayStation 4 soon only to catch speed over time and has currently reached over 16 million players, just before the release of Shadowbringers expansion.

Over time, the game improvised over its issues and has accomplished a rare feat of rising from being pinned to the ground. A bold move from Square Enix to scrap down everything that didn't work and completely remaking it really paid off.

Afterwards, this critically-acclaimed MMORPG title picked up a good pace with players that led to the release of both Heavensward and Stormblood expansions, setting stage for a third DLC pack titled Shadowbringers to complement core story of FFXIV.

RELATED: Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Release Date

Upcoming third expansion would essentially feature loads of contents including dungeons and raids, increased level cap, new jobs, playable races and zones for the fan-favorite massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

Scheduled to arrive on July 2, Square Enix already showcased whatever change players can expect from it and an overwhelming surge in player-count has since pushed to a staggering 16 million in anticipation of Shadowbringers.

In terms of video game genres, MMORPG are one of the most complex types where turning back on your feet after messing up once big time is near impossible but FFXIV has made that possible with "A Realm Reborn" and continues to expand.

While eagerly waiting for upcoming third expanded chapter of Final Fantasy XIV, series fans can prepare themselves and warm up in advance by simply grabbing Heavensward for free until June 27 if they already own the base game.

What many have been pointing out upon launch of Wick's Bounty is that Fortnite always had a bearded character wearing suit, which pretty much akin to Mr. Wick and players even refer him to as "John Wick" since the beginning.

Epic Games probably wanted their own version of Baba Yaga back then and designed the real John Wick to be more serious-looking than his cartoonish and less cool counterpart to help people differentiate between them.

In 2014, actor Keanu Reeves (Constantine, The Matrix) starred in neo-noir action thriller movie John Wick that eventually became a franchise after the movie became an instant hit, releasing two more sequels; John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
