Paladins inadvertently uses actual Overwatch art in advertisement

Hi-Rez Studios, developer of free-to-play hero shooter Paladins, has once again found itself in the shadow of Blizzard, this time after actual Overwatch art made its way into an advertisement for mobile game Paladins Strike. The advert in question was used to promote a new skin for Paladins character Lex – and although the skin render itself dominates the majority of the image, it’s the background that caught the attention of eagle-eyed Reddit users. The sprawling night-time cityscape found there is a blurred, but unmistakable, copy of Overwatch’s Lijiang Tower…

New Battlefield 5 teaser appears to confirm WW2 setting

EA has released a brand-new Battlefield 5 teaser trailer ahead of the game’s full reveal this Thursday, May 23rd, and it appears to confirm previous rumours that DICE’s latest would be WW2 bound. At first glance, the 19-second teaser, which popped up earlier today on Twitter and YouTube, doesn’t seem too revelatory. Screams and gunfire can be heard as the video begins, then a gruff looking gentleman shushes the camera in extreme close-up before all goes black. Hit play for a second time though, with your attention directed toward the…

Fortnite’s jetpacks finally take flight tomorrow

Epic has announced that jetpacks will finally – following their postponement back in March – be coming to Fortnite tomorrow, May 22nd, as part of the new 4.2 content update. Jetpacks were first touted for inclusion in Epic’s juggernaut Battle Royale game in February. “Take the fight to all new heights”, teased an in-game announcement promising that jetpacks would be “coming soon”. Unfortunately, that “soon” wasn’t to be, with Epic electing to delay jetpacks following “a last minute design issue”. That design issue is presumably now resolved, and Fortnite’s New…

Devolver’s E3 press conference is returning for (probably) more harrowing scenes

After its unforgettable (and more than a little unsettling) E3 showcase last year, indie publisher Devolver Digital has confirmed that it will be holding its second ever E3 press conference on Sunday, June 10th. More specifically, the show – once again titled the Big Fancy Press Conference – will unfurl on Sunday, June 10th, at 8pm Pacific Time. For those of us in the UK, this amounts to a rather more unsociable 4am on Monday, June 11th. Ominously, if not exactly unexpectedly, Devolver’s announcement tweet notes, “Apologies in advance”. Devolver…

Alolan Forms are coming to Pokémon Go, before Gen 4

Alolan Forms of Kanto-region Pokémon are coming to Pokémon Go “in the coming weeks”, according to developer Niantic. There’s not a lot of other info on the new forms – in fact, there’s basically no official word other than the fact that they’re coming – and if you’re involved in Pokémon Go or the mainline Pokémon games, the announcement’s probably a bit of a surprise. That’s because the Alolan Forms – tropical versions of some original Pokémon from Gen 1 – appear exclusively in Gen 7’s Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra…
