the launch trailer on PC is out


Red Dead Redemption 2: PC launch trailer released

RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 – Almost a year after the release of the game on home consoles, PC players will finally have the right to get their hands on the title of RockStar Games.

[Mis à jour le 31 octobre 2019 à 15h55] While waiting for the first feedback on the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, you can already rush to the dematerialized version of the game, which can be purchased on the Rockstar launcher or on the Epic Games Store. The game is available as a preload to allow slower connections to download the 150 GB of data. The launch trailer is available for the occasion and gives us the context of the history of the title and its western universe.

Hardware specifications for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC

The hardware requirements have been revealed for Red Dead Redemption 2. Unlike other games, and despite what some expected, the title of Rockstar Games is not that greedy in terms of hardware. The only point that could possibly shock would be the necessary disk space on the hard drive, but we expected this given the immensity of the game: 150GB.

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 7 – Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K / AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • Direct X11 compatible sound card or equivalent
  • Disk space: 150 GB

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 10 – April 2018 Update
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • RAM: 12 GB
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • Direct X11 compatible sound card or equivalent
  • Disk space: 150 GB

It’s the big day: Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for pre-order. After a year of console exclusivity, Rockstar takes pity on us and makes its game available on PC. The same strategy had been implemented for GTA 5 and it had paid off, making the game a great success still played today, especially thanks to the modding community.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will therefore be available on November 5, accompanied by technical and graphic improvements, without giving us too much details on this subject. Players will also have new missions, new places to visit, and new weapons to use.

But if the pre-order is available from October 9, it is only on the Launcher of Rockstar, dedicated to their own games. You will have to wait until October 23 to pre-order it on other platforms, such as the Epic Games Store, Greenman Gaming or Humble Store. As for Steam, it will take even more patience because Red Dead Redemption 2 will not be available on the Valve platform until December 5. In the meantime, a pre-order on the Rockstar Launcher will offer you two juices, and what start your adventure right after the game’s release on PC, on November 5:

  • Two games from this list:
    • Grand Theft Auto III
    • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
    • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
    • Bully: Scholarship Edition
    • L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
    • Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition
  • A set of in-game bonuses:
    • The Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode
    • The War Horse for Story Mode
    • A treasure map for Story mode
    • Bonus dollars for story mode
    • 50 gold bars for Red Dead Online

Multiplayer classes in Frontier Pursuits

Red Dead Redemption Online is getting an update called “Frontier Pursuits”, or “Careers of the West” in the language of Christian Clavier. This update recently lets you embody three categories of characters: a bounty hunter, a merchant or a collector. Each of these roles can be played alone or in a group and allows you to obtain progression experience in each of these classes. This progression is made of 20 levels separated into four parts: novice, promising, established and distinguished. As these levels progress, players will gain special skills and cosmetic rewards. To better understand how each class works, here is an overview:

The bounty hunter:

  • Players must purchase a license in Rhodes, which costs 15 gold bars, and meet a legendary bounty hunter.
  • From rank 12, you can track players with a bonus of at least $ 20. If the bounty hunter delivers the target alive, he receives a reward and the criminal is imprisoned for a time.

Merchant :

  • To become a merchant, speak to Cripps at the camp, which will then become a trading area.
  • You will be able to unlock a large number of storages to help you transport your goods (herbs, animals, skins, etc.) such as saddlebags or carts.
  • You will be able to buy a dog and train it to defend your camp.

The collector

  • To become a collector, you have to find Madame Nazar, the itinerant merchant, to unlock the bag.
  • The collector sells the treasures, the forgotten cards, and generally all the small loots. Some of these loots will be available as a collection, which will be more valuable if sold as a whole than items sold separately.
  • The collector will unlock special tools and benefits in recognition and tracking.

In addition to these three classes, the update brings several improvements to the game, such as chests to loot in carts, new custom outfits, as well as a rebalancing of weapons. In addition to all this, Rockstar joins its many competitors and endows its game with a Battle Pass with 70 levels to unlock.

The multiplayer mode of Red Dead Redemption 2, called Red Dead Online, skillfully blends story and cooperative play with a competitive system to suit all players, who will be free to explore this mode alone or with friends, always in an open world. Several activities are offered and will bring you gold and silver. You can also enjoy secondary activities like hunting or fishing. No poker or dominoes yet, but they may be added in future updates.

In total, 5 game modes will be available, titled Make It Count, Most Wanted, Name Your Weapon, Team Shootout and Races. For the moment, nothing about duels or Mission mode, which are surely planned for future updates. You can participate in these modes alone or with your friends. If you prefer to dwell on the story, rest assured: the multiplayer mode will have its own story as well as scripted missions with moral choices that will affect your level of honor as in the solo mode.

Any good multiplayer open world game must have its own races. In Red Dead Online, the races are divided into 3 different types: point by point, lap and open races. The point by point races will take place at Fort Wallace and Bard’s Crossing, while the lap races will start in different regions of Saint Denis. Finally, the open races will ask you to go through different checkpoints in the regions of Blackwater, Rhodes, Saint Denis, Tumbleweed and Valentine. A team deathmatch mode is also available at Saint Denis Docks and Bolger Glade.

The mode Name Your Weapon is quite original. Basically it is the mode each for oneself in which each elimination brings back points. However, depending on the weapon you use, you will get more or less points. Simply put, the more you use an unwieldy weapon, the more points you will earn. You will be able to fight on 5 different cards, which are Lanik Electrical, Tall Trees, Hearthland Oiled fields, Fort Mercer and Annesburg.

Most Wanted is a game mode incorporating the classics of video games. In this mode, players are left to fend for themselves and must get the most kills to climb the leaderboard. But the more you kill your opponents, the bigger the bounty on your head, which means there will be more and more people chasing you. 5 cards are planned for this mode: Saint Denis, Tall Trees, thieves Landing, Tumble Weed and Valentine.

Make It Count is the Battle Royale mode of Red Dead Redemption 2. This mode will include 32 players who will have to fight to stay the last alive while a deadly circle will gradually decrease. Players will only be able to use the bow and throwing cost, both of which have limited ammo. Currently, 3 different maps will be available for Battle Royale mode: Strawberry, Stillwater Creek and Tall Trees.

Most of the tests of the specialized press were published at the same time, on October 25 around noon. And the least we can say is that the game is unanimous since everyone agrees that Red Dead Redemption 2 pushes the limits of video games. On the English-speaking side, the notes range from 9 to 10 on IGN, Game Informer or GameSpot. Others like Kotaku preferred not to give a rating to the game, even if they recognize the quality of the game. On the French side, the jeuxvideo.com site salutes the game with a nice 19/20 while jeuxactu outright exceeds the limits with a score of 20/20 assigned to the game. Everyone applauds the level of detail and incredible nature of the game, whether the characters or the environments that are perfectly successful.

If you don’t have a PS4 and the game convinced you to take one, be happy: since the day of the release, many PS4 packs with Red Dead Redemption 2 are available. The PS4 Pro Jet Black 1 TB pack supplied with a DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and the Red Dead Redemption 2 game in Blu-Ray for a recorded price of € 439.99. Then comes the PS4 1 TB pack also supplied with a DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 in Blu-Ray all for a noted price of € 349.99.

Holders of the game on Xbox One X will play with better graphics quality, although the PS4 Pro version is also very beautiful. Indeed, Xbox France announced on Twitter that Red Dead Redemption 2 has a resolution of 3840×2160, or in native 4K while exploiting HDR. Better quality than what the PS4 Pro offers with a resolution slightly higher than 1440p, in 1920×2160. Players who bought the game on Xbox One X therefore have the most beautiful version on the screen compared to Playstation players.

the Worlds semi-finals program


League of Legends: Worlds semi-finals schedule

LEAGUE OF LEGENDS – The League of Legends Worlds Championship will soon be over. There are only two weekends left to determine who will be the best League of Legends team in 2019.

[Mis à jour le 31 octobre 2019 à 14h45] The Worlds quarter-finals took place in Madrid, and results were predictable for at least half of the matches. Skt T1 thus won it hands down against outdated Splyce, but who did not deserve it and gave the Korean triple world champions a bit of a hard time. For their part, the G2 Esports stomped a bit against the Damwon Gaming, but ended up winning with a score of 3 to 1. The two winning teams will therefore find themselves in the semi-finals in a match which could very well be the final as the poster is grand: G2 against SKT, the best Europeans against the best Koreans.

The other group of quarter-finals saw an undisputed domination of China. Griffin, number 1 of the LCK, lost 3-1 to the Invictus Gaming, reigning world champions. One would have thought the Korean group closer to winning, but the experience of the Chinese ended up prevailing. Finally, Fnatic disappointed Europe enormously. Again. The team that had managed to take a match at SKT during the group stages immediately fell through with a Garen / Yuumi botlane without impact. The FunPlus Phoenix, which was not necessarily expected, took advantage of multiple errors from Fnatic to win 3 to 1.

China is therefore certainly qualified for the final, with a first semi-final opposing Invictus Gaming at FunPlus Phoenix, Saturday November 2 at 12:00 p.m. On the other side, the Korean giant SKT T1 will face the European colossus G2 Esports, Sunday November 3 at 12:00 p.m.

The spells of Senna, the new champion of League of Legends

The new champion of League of Legends will be Senna, and it is for connoisseurs, the wife of Lucian, locked up for 6 years in the lantern of the terrible harvester of souls: Tresh. But these 6 years drastically changed her and she now combines her old talents with the mist of the dark islands to gain power. Senna will therefore be a shooting character, but above all will be a support, and should have few opportunities to get out of this role. Its passive “Absolution” is thus based on the absorption of souls of minions and champions, and it uses the stored energy to improve its basic attacks. Support does not mean inactive, however, since it will have to take advantage of these power bonuses to attack its opponents.

His A, “Perforating shadow”, has almost the same name as Lucian’s, “Perforating light”, and has substantially the same effect. It is a straight line skillshot that deals damage to opponents, but also heals Senna and allies hit by the beam.

Senna’s Z then shows the abilities she developed during her captivity. “Last hug” will also be a skillshot and is launched in a straight line over a relatively short distance. If an opponent is hit, he creates a zone around him which will immobilize all the opponents after 1 second, for a duration of 1.5 seconds. However, if the original target dies during the delay, the immobilization is applied immediately.

Senna’s E is called “Curse of the Mist”. Senna uses her dark powers to hide in a cloud of evil mist, disappearing from the eyes of her opponents, and camouflaging her allies with her. Senna’s teammates who come out of the mist then appear in the form of a ghoul, impossible to target by the opponents until they attack or the Senna’s mist dissipates.

Finally, Senna’s Dawn Shadow Ultimate skill is a skill that can reach the other end of the map. Senna’s R covers a full lane in width, and the center of its radius deals damage to opposing champions. Throughout her Ultimate area, Senna grants a shield to the allies.

The mechanics of the champion are very original, and Riot always finds a way to exceed the expectations of the players, and to re-invent the mechanics of the game. Senna will thus be the first support shooter, and follows a rich year for this role, since there was Pyke, the first Assassin Support, and Yuumi, the first character to be able to hang on to other champions.

Riot Games finally justifies the S at the end of their name by proposing, for the 10 years of League of Legends, a plethora of absolutely exciting announcements have been made. Several games are planned for the coming months as well as an animated series, but also big changes on the summoner flaw. Let’s recap everything that has been announced.

First, League of Legends will receive several changes for the preseason 10, especially at the level of dragons. These will directly influence the map in addition to giving buffs to different players. For example, the infernal dragon will destroy multiple walls on the map, providing new traffic routes, while the ocean dragon will create more bushes and spawn fruit in each quadrant of the map. The air dragon will create drafts speeding the movement of the players while the mountain dragon will create new walls and obstacles around which to play. In addition to that, the lanes side will have a new alcove in which players can ambush. Several changes are also made to statistics, particularly in the jungle and the top lane, but the supports and murderers are not outdone. In addition, Riot games has just announced its new character: Senna, the wife of Lucian who was previously locked in the lantern of Tresh. Senna will be the first support League of Legends shooter and should bring a very interesting new style of gameplay.

Still on League of Legends, Riot Games has decided to accede to the wishes of TFT players and to bring the game mode to mobile, with a new seasonal system, but that’s not all, because the rumor is confirmed: League of Legends Wild Rift will be the mobile and console port of the famous MOBA, thus bringing an even greater potential for players. However, there will of course be no functionality crossplay planned, balancing between platforms being too complicated.

In terms of other announcements, Riot Games has put the package at its conference the night of October 15 to 16. First of all, Arcane is an animated series entirely produced by Riot Games, and which should tell the story of a duo of young girls at Piltover (probably Vi and Jinx if we follow the color of their hair). Next, Riot Games announced several new games. First of all, a set of collectible cards. In line with Hearthstone and other Magic Arena, Riot Games is betting on a card game based on the universe of Runeterra, Legends of Runeterra, with new mechanics for the genre. Then there is Project L and Project A. The first is a game of Versus Fighting with characters from League of Legends. The first glimpses were given during the EVO. Project A meanwhile wants to be a competitive FPS halfway between Counter-Strike and Overwatch. Finally, we only got a glimpse of it, but two other games will make their debut: League of Legends Esports Manager, who will look like a Football manager in which you will have to manage LoL players. The first available region will be LPL (China) and the other regions will be gradually added. The last game shown, Project F will be a Hack & Slash MMO allowing you to explore the world of Runeterra. You can find the conference below with all the announcements.

Clash mode in League of Legends

Clash mode appeared for the first time, but was removed very quickly due to numerous bugs. After many months of optimization and correction of the famous bugs, the game mode is officially back, and does not seem to suffer like its predecessor. In this mode, players can form teams according to their level and their favorite position, to compete in amateur tournaments every weekend. These tournaments provide access to numerous in-game rewards, and the first will take place on October 5. Registration is open until the evening of the 4th.

The design of the Clash game mode prevents novice players from falling on veterans (platinum and +), which allows all players to hope to achieve a satisfactory result. The rewards will obviously vary depending on the results and the progression within the tournaments, but all participants will have at least the following rewards:

  • A safe
  • Victory points to buy logos and team banner
  • Summoner icons

news, challenges … Everything you need to know about Chapter 2

14:10 – The challenge map “Trading at the docks”

This week, the challenges available go hand in hand, since the set of challenges is part of the Nightmare event. But another set of challenges is available today. This set of challenges is quite large and varied. Without further ado, find below the map of the various places where to carry out your challenges “Trading at the docks”.

12:38 – The forced cross-platform continues to disturb

Cross-platform matchmaking on Fortnite has been integrated a few months ago now. This matchmaking allows all players to meet according to their performance, regardless of their gaming platform. But still, there is a disadvantage, because the best console players quickly find themselves facing PC players, and they suffer . Because the PC has always been more efficient for the FPS, despite the aiming correction built into the console. With this forced cross-platform matchmaking, console players begin to tire of the game, as unbalanced as possible when facing PC players.

11:03 – The map of the challenges of the nightmare event

Several challenges were released during the launch of the nightmare event during Chapter 2 of Fortnite. These challenges are quite diverse, asking you to use a hiding place, destroy furniture, visit places or simply defeat the bump of the island. The latter is also located in the center of the island and will offer you an umbrella if you manage to defeat it.

the postponed release on PS5


Watch Dogs Legion: the postponed release on PS5

WATCH DOGS LEGION – Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion is part of a set of games delayed until later in 2020.

[Mise à jour le 31 octobre 2019 à 12h58] Last week, Ubisoft revealed its results for the year 2019, and they are not famous. This has also pushed them to review their ambitions for the end of the 2019/2020 fiscal year. In addition, the choice was made to postpone Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine until later in 2020, without giving precise dates. These three games will therefore be more likely to be released during the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett release period. The question then arose, and Yves Guillemot answered it: these three games will be Cross-Gen, in order to use to their advantage the new features and new hardware that will be offered by the consoles of the new generation. These announcements also apply to the 2 other triple A announced for 2020 but which we do not yet know. “The 5 titles [de 2020] will be on the current generation of console, but also on the next, and they will use to their advantage all the new features that come with these machines. This should be very interesting for the players, since you will be able to have new content in particular faster “, said Yves Guillemot.

Creations of players integrated into the game

Like the community operation carried out for Beyond Good & Evil 2, Ubisoft is renewing a partnership with HitRecord, Joseph Gordon-Lewitt’s company. The idea is to integrate the creations of the community into the game world, here Watch Dogs Legion, as announced on the official Ubisoft website: “Whether you are a musical composer, a writer, a singer, a player, or someone with big ideas and a lot of passion … we can’t wait to hear your musical compositions. As in any creative endeavor, some ideas will go no further, and will not materialize as expected, while certain elements will not be suitable for the game. “

The problem that many people raise is the method of payment. As explained in English in a video, HitRecords wants to pay the artists who are selected at the end of the event up to $ 2,000 per music, separated between the different creators of each music. The problem raised here by the artists is the dimension of competition for this event. Indeed, even if you produce something, you will not necessarily be paid if you are not chosen. Ubisoft has therefore been accused of favoring potentially free work. Obviously, the vision on the side of Ubisoft is quite different, since it is a community dimension which is envisaged, with a freedom of participation.

Introducing Watch Dogs Legion

“God Save the NPC” was the phrase that teased the new title of the Watch Dogs license. We couldn’t agree more with this sentence now that the game was unveiled by Ubisoft during its conference at E3 2019. After Chicago and San Francisco, Watch Dogs arrives in Europe, in a dystopian version of London. The developers have located the action taking place in the near “post-Brexit” future, far from the apolitical idea that the publisher has claimed in recent years. The game stages an advanced humanity, supported or replaced by artificial intelligence. London is under the control of Albion, a paramilitary society that makes order on the streets with the help of many drones and even more cameras. Faced with this bleak picture, the population organized itself into a resistance group: DedSec.

All the possibilities offered are in line with Watch Dogs, and many are pirated. Whether it’s a computer server, a delivery drone or cameras, everything is always hackable. But the great novelty of this title is at the level of the characters. To advance on each objective, you will need to call on one or more characters. These characters have their own characteristics, but above all they belong to the world of NPC, or non-player character. Each character you meet will be a potential recruit for your rebel group. An incredible variety of characters and choices will be offered to you thanks to this mechanism, even if we can issue a reserve on the quantity of menus that will have to be surveyed to optimize your adventure.

Watch Dogs Legion will be available on March 6, 2020, and those who pre-order a collector’s edition will have access to the game 3 days before.

The essential

If the name of the game is familiar to us, it is not that close to that of its elder. Neither a sequel, nor a remake, Call of Duty Modern Warfare invites you to dive into the war, the real one, with raw realism and a feeling of regular discomfort, both in the solo and in the multiplayer.

More info about Call of Duty Modern Warfare

There are a lot of new features in the multiplayer modes of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, some incredible, others usual. In the revelation of the game’s multiplayer last August, the focus was first of all on the variety of the gameplay. Several game modes have been presented, ranging from 2v2 to 20v20, on maps that are much more asymmetrical than the old ones, with the aim of representing a context of likely confrontation. And among these contexts, there is an absolutely fascinating new game mode: nightly confrontation. Whether at night or in dark caves, you need to find your bearings using your night vision goggles, which obviously modify your perception of the environment, but also allow you to see the lasers of your opponents’ weapons . It is also easier to attack these opponents at the corner of a wall, with the mechanics of peeking (which consists of allowing you to lean over the corner of a wall to reveal yourself). Mechanics just as useful when it comes to storming a building, since they are now accessible via the doors, from which you can slide flash and frag grenades in order to dislodge the defenders using rifles pump whose feeling seems exceptionally heavy.

These weapons, precisely, are customizable to an incredible level. Up to 9 customization locations for weapons, allowing you to manage the statistics to the point, for a total of 30 (on pistols) with 60 attachments available per weapon. As in the previous installment, you can use different characters, even if they do not seem to have special abilities. Another level of customization: your range of Killstreaks capabilities. Some were presented, and among them there is of course the famous RC-XD, the reconnaissance drone, the air missile, but also a combat helicopter, an AC-130, as well as a light armored, pilotable at two, with room for a turret gunner.

Finally, and this was undoubtedly necessary: ​​Call of Duty Modern Warfare has the right to a whole new game engine, allowing to change the feeling of the movements, but also to push the graphics a little further, via photogrammetry (representation as exact as possible of a 3D element) and graphics inspired by photorealism. And, if it is undoubtedly great for the solo mode, centered on a rendering closer to the simulation, we are entitled to ask the question of the interest of these additions of realism in a multiplayer which probably comes down to fast enough to run & gun with jumps and dropshots.

The solo of Call of Duty games has sometimes been credited but it is especially the multiplayer mode of the series that ignited the playground since it is he who renewed the genre of competitive FPS during the release of Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare. This year, a new mechanism is implemented in multiplayer, even if it worries. Infinity Ward announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a cross-platform title that allows all players to compete against each other, regardless of their medium, PC, PS4 or Xbox One. In this system inspired by the functioning of Fortnite, the players will be grouped according to their device above all, which prevents being found wildly dropped in a keyboard / mouse part while you have a controller. The only way to suffer this inconvenience would be to group with PC players, in which case the support used in majority decides the type of game in which you will be launched. In addition to this information, it was announced that no season pass would spoil the multiplayer experience, unlike Black Ops 4.

The Spec-Ops mode is a game mode apart, available from the launch of Call of Duty Modern Warfare. The idea is to propose a set of cooperative missions to accomplish a set of objectives on different maps. Each of these goals advances a story that is unique to this cooperative game mode. The adversaries you meet during Spec-Ops missions react to the way you play and to the choices you make, not hesitating to send more troops than planned to face you, even going so far as to deploy Mastodons and helicopters in large quantities. All this takes place on a vast panel of maps, which all revolve around the city of Verdansk, the location of the action of these missions. When the game launches, four operations are available, but many more are planned for the future, and these operations will be added on all platforms at the same time. And this is not the case with all game modes! Indeed, at the same time as these operations, there is also a new mode: the Survival. It is a game mode based on a concept of survival against hordes of enemies arriving in successive waves. But this mode has the distinction of being exclusive to the PS4 until October 1, 2020.

Apart from the solo, on which the emphasis is placed, Call of Duty is renowned for its multiplayer, which has become a classic, but also its zombie mode. Appeared in 2008 with World at War, the zombie mode of Call of Duty has therefore become a must. The other developer studios of the franchise have gradually got down to the idea of ​​adding more, including in the most futuristic titles. There were no announcements when the Call of Duty Modern Warfare was revealed, and it looked like a surprise, but “Campaign Gameplay Director” Jacob Minkoff confirmed that there would be no zombie mode on Call of Duty this year. The idea is to keep a coherence and a realism that the developers wish to put forward in the series, and “it would harm the feeling of playing in a realistic and authentic world, close to the conflicts of today and the issues that we meet”. Less likely in view of the mixed success of the previous game, there is also no question of Battle Royale, the genre seeming to attract less and less in a market that was quickly saturated following the successes of PUBG and Fortnite.

This year, solo mode is likely to be talked about. Indeed the scenario returns to a period which blew up the series with Call of Duty 4. The narrative director however made it very clear: it is not a sequel to the Modern Warfare, or a very simple remake. The objective here is to offer increased realism, which had become difficult after the turning points in Hollywood taken by the series since Modern Warfare 2. In addition, the situation of our world has changed a little since 2007, and the conflicts too. The era of pitched battles with uniforms has given way to asymmetrical conflicts. Thus, any place can become a battlefield, and the question arises of the morality of combat, and thus of non-Manichaeism. This time, no arbitrarily defined villains. People from the same population can be your enemies as well as your allies, and you will have to adapt your tactics to the specifics of each of these adversaries. The ambition of the developers is thus to make one feel emotions in the context of the war, the real one, or almost, both on the side of the soldiers of the SAS or the USMC, but also on the side of the freedom fighters in Middle East or elsewhere.

A more realistic Modern Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released in 2007. The 4th title in the Call of Duty series at the time offered a leap in time to offer us a modern story, in the context of a current fictional conflict, highlighting scene a dictator of the Middle East and a group of Russian ultranationalists aiming to start a world nuclear war and to destroy the United States. Players of this era remember this game for the new mechanics it brought to the multiplayer FPS, but also for its solo campaign featuring memorable characters, like Captain Price or Sergeant “Soap” MacTavish (and even Sergeant Paul Jackson or Sergeant Griggs for the finest connoisseurs).

These players of the time will therefore be happy to find the very special atmosphere of this opus as well as some of its characters, including Captain Price that we see from the start (but without Marc Alfos, who was the original voice actor of the character, deceased since). In the game trailer, we can see a good technological improvement on the engine which was getting a little aging. Besides the technological aspect, it is the scenario and the way it will deal with modern warfare that will be interesting. If the Call of Duty solo campaigns have not been very striking in recent years (until a total absence of solo in Black Ops 4), the developers seem here to want to reconnect with what made the charm of the series. In addition, the maturity and the dark atmosphere seem to be back with a way of dealing with war both on the side of soldiers and combatants, but also of civilians. Protecting them seems to be paramount. We also see in the trailer several images of war doctors who must operate in difficult conditions, and mention is made of chemical weapons and a child wearing a gas mask. A raw vision of war, no doubt to reconnect with early fans who are beginning to age.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released on October 25, 2019 and on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, with something new this year: the cross-platform. It’s quite surprising for a saga that puts multiplayer as much forward, since an FPS has generally always been to the advantage of PC players, more precise and faster with their mouse, but that may be the key to keep a community active for as long as possible. Good news, however, the developers abandon the principle of season pass and promise that the contents of the DLC will be available for free, even if there will be a small temporary exclusivity on Playstation. An effort very focused on consumer satisfaction, it seems necessary after the setbacks of Black Ops 4, whose economic model has been considered indecent by many players.

Call of Duty esports is one of the founders of the discipline. But it came to gradually move into the background. It is with a view to bringing it back to the forefront, at the same time as the reboot of the franchise on Modern Warfare, that Activision wishes to install a franchise system similar to that of Overwatch. The latter, as a reminder, cost $ 25 million for each investor wishing to buy a place in the Overwatch league. For the Call of Duty League, the price is 20 million per team, and a leak has, unfortunately for investors, revealed earlier than expected the teams placed in this niche. We then recognize some flagship esports teams, such as Faze or Optic gaming, as well as the Paris team which belongs to the same entity as the Paris Eternal team on Overwatch.

  • Atlanta Faze
  • Optic Los Angeles
  • Seattle Surge
  • Chicago Huntsman
  • Minnesota Rokkr
  • Dallas Empire
  • Los Angeles Guerrillas
  • Paris Legion
  • London Royal Ravens
  • Florida Mutineers
  • New York Sibliners
  • Toronto Ultra

Call of Duty Mobile has been available worldwide since October 1, with the exception of China, Vietnam and Belgium. The title is the first mobile port of the saga, and offers you very recognizable game environments. Following the classic economic model of any self-respecting Free-to-play (or rather which respects players’ wallets), the game works on a Pay-to-fast basis in which you unlock weapons, customizations and additional statistics . The main part of the game will be done around your choice of equipment, the unlocking of which is very close to a classic Call of Duty (with an emphasis on your wallet to speed up progress obviously).

The gameplay itself remains simple, and nevertheless adapts very well to the mobile format. Horizontally, you simply have to move and target your opponents, the game then taking care of shooting as soon as the cursor is on an opponent. There is nothing special about this gameplay, and it is above all your ability to place yourself effectively that will decide whether you win or not. And in addition to classic modes such as the team death match, a Battle Royale mode is also unlockable from level 7. In the end, Call of Duty Mobile follows in the footsteps of its elders by taking back what made the success of its competitors (PUBG Mobile and Fortnite among others) to mix it in a very classic Call of Duty formula, and adapted to a Free-to-play format whose desire to highlight its business model is sometimes done at the expense of the pleasure of play.

Play Call of Duty Mobile on PC

With the exception of three countries, Call of Duty Mobile is available worldwide, and it is almost a pure and simple porting of the game on mobile (with adapted gameplay of course). It’s the prerogative of a mobile game, but there is an odd feeling that constantly makes you doubt that you are playing against players or bots. But the little extra is that your opponents are just as likely to use a keyboard / mouse on mobile. If this seems surprising to you, it is nevertheless very simple to carry out. Indeed, there are a large number of Android emulators (software that allows you to play games by simulating a console on a PC), and it is very easy to download one. Thus, you simulate the existence of a Smartphone on your PC and you simply have to link your account and download the game to be able to play it, with a keyboard / mouse as a bonus, theoretically simplifying the task compared to tactile players . Obviously, this way of playing is not necessarily encouraged by the creators of the game, and the question that then arises is: will Activision crack down on these players?

all about the Switch game for its release


Luigi's Mansion 3: all about the Switch game for its release

LUIGI’S MANSION 3 – Nintendo offers us a delicious Halloween with the release of the new Luigi’s Mansion, a game that seems to exceed expectations on Switch.

[Mise à jour le 31 octobre 2019 à 11h39] If the title was not the most awaited by Nintendo for this year, we have come to shudder with impatience at the approach of its release, because the information and the criticisms received are absolutely all positive. The game itself remains in line with its predecessors, with your ghost vacuum cleaner which becomes a real Swiss knife, allowing you many actions. The hotel, divided into several thematic floors, is teeming with secrets to discover. Each floor being perfectly renewed and original, we end up with a game that seems addictive and offers a certain interest, renewed regularly. Count, according to the tests, almost 30 hours to solve all the puzzles, and a little more if you want to discover all the secrets. Also remember to bring your best playmate, because Luigi’s Mansion 3 is an opportunity to have a good time, since the game is fully playable in cooperation, with the character of Gluigi, who has his own mechanics, creating an asymmetrical but terribly interesting game system. And if you are bored with cooperation, you can still indulge in multiplayer, with a whole bunch of activities, including procedurally generated levels, for almost infinite replayability. Find below a review of the press tests for more details.

Luigi’s Mansion 3: what do press tests say?

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the brand new installment in the little saga of Mario’s brother. Courageous, the green guy will do everything to save his friends, kidnapped by ghosts in a sordid hotel. The game seems to be a worthy continuation of the previous two, and modernizes the concepts introduced previously, despite the flawless linearity inherent in the saga it seems. The overall ratings convey this idea, with very good feedback from most of the specialized media.

“There are not many possibilities to diverge from the frame, but each level has a large number of optional challenges and puzzles, objects to find or various bonuses” indicates VG247 in his test. Each level being on a specific theme, we expect to collect in large numbers to keep us entertained throughout the game, and this is clever given that in a hotel like that of Luigi’s Mansion, it would have been difficult to set up optional ways to solve the story. But do not expect to quietly unfold the scenario, comfortably installed with your Switch, your plaid and your hot chocolate. Because, according to Eurogamer, there will be several “panic situations during which Luigi is put under pressure by his environment, during which you will have only a few seconds to solve a puzzle and quickly transfer your attention between Luigi and Gluigi while piles are closing in on you And even if it’s not the good old Luigi’s Mansion that you know, it keeps the same spirit. ” But since everything cannot be perfect, there must be a small shadow on the board, and this is Game Informer who brings it, noting that “the controls are a bit difficult, and bring a little frustration. A fixed camera, an omni-directional joystick and an imprecise motion-control combine for a frustrating experience. […] It took several tries to finally feel that I had total control of Luigi “.

But despite small shadows, the game is generally very well received, and gets very correct marks. VG247 note 4/5, Eurogamer recommends the game, IGN gives it a very good 8.3 / 10 rating, equivalent to that of Game Informer which is 8.5 / 10. In short, a game recommended by the press, and which will occupy your calm evenings of the approaching winter.

Scenario, gameplay … What you need to know about this sequel

A few days before the release of Luigi’s Mansion 3, it’s time to take stock of some of the information we have for this third installment of the nice ghost hunting game that will be released on October 31 on Nintendo Switch, the hybrid console from the Japanese manufacturer. Here is the information to remember about this new episode of the saga born on GameCube in which Mario’s brother is sent to catch ghosts using a very special vacuum cleaner.

  • The scenario sends us to a hotel of several floors, in which your friends (Mario, Peach and a fiddling with Toads) are trapped. Each floor revolves around a particular theme (pirate, medieval, Egypt …) and unique mechanics.
  • Luigi has several new skills, such as “slam”, which allows you to stun ghosts after hitting them repeatedly against the ground.
  • Each floor should allow a temporary upgrade on your paraphernalia. For example, the floor of carnivorous plants could offer you the possibility of installing a saw on your vacuum cleaner.
  • Cooperation makes its entrance, with the character of Gluigi, the gelatinous version of the hero. The particular mechanics of its bodily matter will be useful for unlocking new accesses.
  • Several multiplayer modes are to be expected, including the “ScareScrapper” mode, playable from 1 to 8 players, in which participants are attacked by multiple waves of enemies as they try to climb the floors of a hotel generated by procedural way.

DLC for Luigi’s Mansion 3

We were talking at the beginning of September, following Nintendo Direct, the different multiplayer modes of Luigi’s Mansion 3. These, without being revolutionary, still promise a few hours of fun with friends or online thanks to effective gameplay . But Nintendo had not announced it during the live: the game, and especially the multiplayer, will have paid DLC to come. It says at the bottom of the Nintendo store page : “Note: Paid downloadable content will be available for Luigi’s Mansion 3 in the future. It will enrich the multiplayer modes of the Haunted Tower and the Strange Games!”

Nintendo has not yet communicated on this additional content and what it will bring, but it is likely that these are new characters, cosmetics, challenges and game cards. We should have all the information necessary to this topic during the month of October.

What new features for Luigi’s Mansion 3?

Luigi’s Mansion 3 takes place in a very strange hotel, which is much larger than the playgrounds of the previous two episodes. Each floor will have a specific theme, and the one highlighted during the Nintendo Direct video is that of Ancient Egypt. But there will also be a medieval floor, a pirate tavern, a restaurant and a nightclub. To get an idea of ​​all that Nintendo is preparing for the solo of Luigi’s Mansion 3, we can watch the different trailers of this year, especially that of E3. But that will only give us a glimpse of the game, which will be released soon.

Most of the time for the presentation of Nintendo Direct on September 5, however, focused on multiplayer modes: games of the strange. In this multiplayer mode, two opposing teams, a team from Luigi and a team from Gluigi, the sticky alter ego of Luigi. Up to 8 players can compete on a single console. The objective of this mode is to make more points than the opposing team by defeating ghosts, collecting coins, and interacting with the decor like destroying targets with a cannon. We will not know more than that before the release of the game on October 31, 2019 on Nintendo Switch, just for Halloween.

Aubrey O ‘Day Posts Rare “Real Life Selfie” in a tight Baywatch swimsuit

Aubrey O’Day has shared a steady stream of updates on social media over the past day, while keeping her fans updated on the events of her life and different things in her mind. Among the updates were a number of stories on Instagram that revealed a rare type of photo from the singer.

“I no longer publish real-life selfies,” he wrote in the caption of the photo in his stories on Instagram.

Aubrey wore a low-cut red one-piece swimsuit with a round patch on the front bottom that was too small for her, since her sideboob was left on display. The Ex on the beach the star took the photo with her left hand while looking at the screen. Aubrey rubbed her hair in a casual look as she rocked her dark eyeliner and shimmering lipstick, apparently posing in a bathroom with a tub behind her.

And it’s true that some time has passed since Aubrey shared a “real-life selfie”, alluding to her usual Instagram posts. Recently, most of his photos showed a heavily modified appearance, while video filters added a new level of surrealism to the images. This means that dedicated followers will likely be thrilled to see her selfies, hoping for more shots like this too. However, it is difficult to know whether Aubrey is going to maintain her well-groomed appearance.

Before the selfie above appeared in her Instagram stories, the reality TV star teased her fans. Initially, he shared the image of a woman wearing heart-shaped messes.

“I should be the queen of the heart tom @poolside_collection,” he asked in the captions.

From there, he shared a black and white repost of a pair of twin models.

“Or Baywatch with my twins? @the_kaplan_twins “, he added.

It appears that Aubrey has opted for the Baywatch look, though his stories may also reveal yet another Halloween costume he has in store for his fans.

In addition to all this, Aubrey also shared a screenshot of a fun Halloween costume with her followers. It was a search result from the Party City website and was of a “Ghost Woman Costume”. The costume was of a woman who wore a white dress with text messages. The reality TV star couldn’t help commenting on the article.

“Yo, @partycity is essential for this …”, he noted in the captions.

It’s no secret that the singer is all for the holidays, as she shared photos of multiple different costumes last week. This included a recent post in which she played Jessica Rabbit.
