Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Season 3 Reloaded is Now Live
Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Season Three Reloaded is finally here and brings with it a huge dose of new action-packed content, bug fixes and gameplay balances and tweaks.
One of the main attractions for the new season is the addition of two new bundles that are based on ‘80s action heroes, John Rambo and John McClane from Die Hard. The Rambo bundle includes the operator, two finishing moves, three legendary blueprints, a knife blueprint, a legendary calling card, an emblem, an epic watch and epic charm. As for the Die Hard bundle, players will get the operator, a finishing move, three legendary blueprints, a legendary calling card, an emblem, an epic watch and an epic weapon charm.
Continuing with the theme of the two action heroes, new points of interest have also been added to the map of Verdansk. For a limited time, you will be able to explore the Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard, Survival Camps from Rambo: First Blood Part II and the CIA Outpost from Rambo.
Other than that, the game will now feature new Combat Bow Killstreaks, a new Limited-Time mode called Power Grab, two new weapons, the Ballistic Knife and the AMP63 pistol and a whole lot more.
This would also be a good time to get back into Warzone as Raven Software has recently revealed that they have banned over half a million cheaters in total, which should make the experience a lot more enjoyable.
Call of Duty®: Warzone™ is Free-to-Play and you can download it from Battle.net.
Rockstar Games Unveils New Content for GTA Online and Red Dead Online
Throughout the month of May and the summer months, GTA Online and Red Dead Online will be receiving a slew of new content. According to Rockstar Games, these are based on some of the most frequently fan-requested additions, which include new items, quality of life updates and more.
For GTA Online, there will be an emphasis on car culture as not only will players be able to organise underground meets and take part in new races but also take part in high stakes and high action car thefts. There will also be eight new Stunt Races being added to the Stunt Series on May 27 and seven new arenas for the Deadline mode. Last but not least, Survival mode will also be expanded to new locations throughout Los Santos and Blaine County.
Moving on to Red Dead Online, players will get to take part in eight new Races that span across the five states. These races include new Standard Races and Open Races. The latter gives players the choice to determine the best path to reach the finish line. On top of that, there will also be new Target and Open Target Races, where players will have to take out target checkpoints using their trust bow and arrow while on horseback. These new races will be available on May 25.
Additionally, the summer update will introduce new missions that will let players step further into the criminal underworld.
NBA 2K21 is Free on the Epic Games Store from May 20 to May 27
In this latest release, 2K Games promises players will truly be immersed into all facets of NBA basketball and culture. Much like before, you can create your own virtual avatar and make a name for yourself in the basketball universe in the MyCAREER mode. If you prefer taking on the role of a coach or team manager, there’s the MyTEAM mode that lets you build your fantasy team of current players and historic legends and compete with friends and other players online.
Furthermore, there’s also a new neighbourhood locale that lets you play in 1vs1, 3vs3 streetball and 5vs5 ProAm games. In the neighbourhood, you will also be able to shop for the latest sneakers, apparels and level up your MyPLAYER in the local training facility.
The Chameleon Set to Arrive on Steam and Epic Games Store on July 13
Fans of the stealth genre will definitely want to add Merlino Games’ The Chameleon to their wishlist. This tense stealth game will be released on July 13 and will be available on Steam or the Epic Games Store.
Categorised as a retro stealth exploration game, The Chameleon puts you in the Hawaiian shirt as an unnamed hero who has lost his memory and wakes up in a mysterious underground facility. What sets The Chameleon apart from other stealth games is that instead of hiding in the shadows or vents, you have the power to shapeshift into identical copies of the enemies who are hunting you.
Set in the ‘70s, the art style mirrors graphics straight out of older games with chunky pixels but is blended in with modern volumetric lighting and effects. The music is also inspired by that era and has 12 full tracks to immerse gamers into the world of The Chameleon.
The Sims 4 to Receive New Content in May, June and July
Even after seven years, The Sims 4 is still going strong and will be receiving a new game pack, expansion pack, and base game updates in the coming months.
The Sims team recently shared the Summer of Sims roadmap that outlines various additions that will be coming to the game in May, June and July. One of the new packs, Courtyard Oasis Kit, is available now but according to the roadmap, there will be a creative new game pack, which features a new career. On top of that, there will also be a new expansion pack but not much has been shared about it just yet.
As for the base game, players will receive three major updates over the next few months. Finally, there will also be two upcoming events - a virtual block party and the Sims event of the Summer.
Fourth Expansion for Final Fantasy® XIV Online is Coming November 23
Known as Endwalker™, this new expansion will introduce plenty of new content that will get players either back into the MMO or hooked onto it longer. Some of the new additions will include a new playable race, the male Viera, which will join the existing female Viera. There will also be a new job that, the Reaper, a scythe-swinging melee class focused on dishing out DPS and can call upon the avatar of the Void.
Besides that, there will also be a new City, Old Sharlyan, to explore, new tribes to encounter and of course new threats to overcome.
FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online is available for purchase on Steam or from the game’s official page.
