Here’s a glimpse at Battlefield 5 battle royale

Wesley Yin-Poole Deputy Editor @wyp100 DICE has offered a glimpse – and I mean a glimpse – at Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode. The sneak peek came at the end of a recently-released trailer for the WW2-themed shooter, and shows a ring of fire – Battlefield 5’s version of Fortnite’s Storm Eye or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ blue zone – closing in on a handful of players who are scrambling to survive. DICE has yet to reveal any information about Battlefield 5 battle royale, save it’s called Royale. We don’t know how…

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is having a better time of it outside Steam

On Steam, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is often accused of being riddled by bugs, performing badly and in dire need of attention from developer Bluehole. Outside of Steam, PUBG seems to be having a much better time of it. The battle royale phenomenon is a monster hit on mobile, where it’s been downloaded more than 100m times since it came out over four months ago. The mobile version has over 14 million daily users, PUBG Corp recently said. Read more…

A mortgage broker worked out the real world cost of a house in Skyrim

In the real world, house prices are so high that owning your own home is a pipedream for millions. But what would it cost to buy a house in, say, Skyrim, if it were in the real world? Well, all of a sudden house prices get a bit more realistic. Mortgage broker L&C Mortgages spent some time working out the real world cost of property in a raft of video games, including Skyrim, Fallout, Zelda and The Witcher 3.

FIFA 19 is going big on the Spanish league

Wesley Yin-Poole Deputy Editor @wyp100 FIFA 19 is going big on the Spanish league with 16 brand new stadiums in the game. In FIFA 19 you can pick any of the officially-licensed LaLiga clubs and play in their stadium in Career and Kick-Off modes, or add the item to your FIFA Ultimate Team club. However, PES still has the Camp Nou exclusively as part of its licensing deal with Barcelona. Here are all 19 available stadiums (16 are new): Estadio Mestalla (Valencia) Estadio ABANCA-Riazor (Deportivo La Coruña) Estadio Benito Villamarín…

Bungie makes a new, more accessible version of the hardest weapon to get in Destiny 2

Bungie has announced a plan to make a new, more accessible version of the hardest weapon to get in Destiny 2 – and now the community is questioning the very nature of the grind itself. Redrix’s Claymore is a legendary quality pulse rifle with a unique perk combo: Outlaw and Desperado. In combination, these two perks are devastating for competitive multiplayer in particular. Outlaw sees precision kills greatly decrease reload time, while Desperado sees reloading while Outlaw is active increase your rate of fire. In short, Redrix’s Claymore is a…

Valve accidentally launches Steam.tv early

Overnight, Valve accidentally launched Steam.tv – what looks like a take on Twitch – early. The company pulled the website offline shortly after, but not before people got a chance to play around with it. Steam Broadcasting as it currently looks – that is, pretty uninspired. Cnet went hands-on with Steam.tv in the hour or so that it was online, and said it was showing The International – the big Dota 2 tournament that’s going on right now. Accessible via Steam.tv is the new Steam Chat friends list and group…

H1Z1 PS4 producer on spectacular launch, balancing and what comes next

It’s no secret H1Z1 hasn’t had the easiest of rides. Despite being one of the first games to develop a battle royale mode, H1Z1’s PC version suffered a huge dip in player numbers when competitors such as PUBG and Fortnite emerged. Meanwhile, the H1Z1 community has often complained about the lack of regular updates, and the game’s current review score isn’t looking particularly peachy. Yet it seems H1Z1’s fortunes on the PlayStation have been radically different to the PC version. A few weeks ago Daybreak announced over 10m people had…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is getting some promising changes based on beta feedback

Treyarch has outlined changes coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 based on feedback to the recent beta – and a lot of them sound promising. First up we have a nerf to the controversial body armour gear item. As I’ve reported before, one aspect of Black Ops 4 that was universally criticised by players, many of whom wanted it pulled from the game entirely, was body armour. The complaint revolved around Black Ops 4’s “Time to Kill” being too long. Call of Duty is known for being a…
