Battlefield 1 Apocalypse DLC Out Now

While Call of Duty: WWII have single handedly dominated the console gaming last year, Electronic Arts only released one DLC for their World War 1 based shooter Battlefield 1. They are trying to get back in the game once again with a new update for the aforementioned title and the fourth DLC game pack Apocalypse, which has new content, gadgets, maps and weapons but is currently accessible for some selective player base.

Below is the official trailer clip of Battlefield 1's newest DLC expansion pack Apocalypse in its iconic glory.




Apocalypse expansion pack brings five new maps for the Battlefield 1 players to explore. The Caporetto, Passchendaele and River Somme are three of the standard multiplayer maps. You play on an aircraft-only game mode on London Calling and Razor's Edge maps as they are specifically designed for Air Assault. Though the majority of the battle is just dogfights but that doesn't mean that giant Airships won't be popping out of nowhere to give you some more trouble.

The DLC pack brings few new tools on the table. There are weapons like RSC SMG, meat cleaver or handy prybar to use as melee weapon, AA Rocket Gun for the Assault class to damage enemy aircrafts. Plus, two bomber aircrafts Airco DH10 and Hansa Brandenburg GI will be at your disposal. Codex entries, dog tags, medals and ribbons are among the cosmetic items that you need to unlock and you got some new assignments as well.

You can only get access to Apocalypse DLC if you own a Premium Pass or happen to have the Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition. Revolution got the whole base game along with access to all the DLC release in advance. The expansion will be available within the next two weeks for purchase and the date is March 6. However, the new update is necessary to download to play online even if you have the main game already.

Developed by EA DICE, Battlefield 1 is a first-person shooter released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on October 21, 2016. Even though developer DICE isn't showing signs of giving up support for the game anytime soon, as far as confirmation goes, Apocalypse is going to be the last DLC for Battlefield 1. Besides, there was rumor for a new Battlefield game to be released at the end of 2018 but no official statement from EA was released yet.

Doom on Switch Adds Motion Controls

If first-person shooter game Doom from id Software has taught us anything that would be blasting off demons is never a boring chore. People who want to have this simple enjoyment on-the-go have sought to the Nintendo Switch version of the game when this demon-slaying fest debuted on the platform. With a newly released update, Doom has added "Motion Controls" for Switch console.

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.

The brand-new patch also comes with support for multiplayer fans as a new party system is now part of Doom's multiplayer. This is a great way to gather your friends and troops online to join the monster slaying fest on Hell. A new Game Icon will now appear below the main menu of Nintendo Switch, just like the one you saw on the game's boxart. Besides, apart from Motion Controls and Party Support, the patch offers a few minor fixes to improve the experience, which includes some audio issues too.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Jordan (Creed, The Wire). He finally steps into Marvel: Contest of Champions to claim his rightful place.

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.

His character can shrug off enemy attacks during a block using his Counterpunch Charges and begin performing his very own combo. This attack tactics is very effective against Stun Immune opponents of Battlerealm. 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.
