Blizzard celebrates Black Friday with a free week of Overwatch

Black Friday is around the corner and in Blizzard Entertainment they want to celebrate it too. On occasion of the event, they have lowered the price on plenty of products in their Battle.net online shop and you can get games from their most popular series with nice discounts for a limited time, including Diablo, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Overwatch. You can also get Hearthstone packs with a 30% discount. But let’s face it, there are better deals out there and you can find the best prices using our comparator anytime, so those discounts are probably not impressive at all for you.

What may catch your attention is that Blizzard has launched a free trial that allows you to play its competitive first-person shooter Overwatch for a whole week. From November 26 to December 4, 2019, if you want to play Overwatch on PC, all you have to do is visiting the official website of the game and download it for free. You will have access to all that Overwatch has to offer, including all of the 31 heroes available, each of them with its own set of skills and specialization. You will then join a team of players and fight against other players in competitive arenas. Overwatch features several gameplay modes for you to choose and plenty of scenarios where to fight.

As it usually happens in these kinds of trials, any kind of progress that you make while playing during the trial period is saved and linked to your account, (you will have to create one if you don’t have one already from playing other games from Blizzard). If you decide to purchase the game anytime all you have to do is log in with your account and you will find all of your achievements there, being able to continue your progress just like that. Of course, to buy Overwatch at the cheapest price on all platforms you just need to visit our comparator. Remember that Overwatch 2 is in the works too, so you may want to try the first game and hone your skills a bit before you discover what’s coming.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to Steam very soon

In another chapter in the war between Valve and Epic Games for the exclusive release of games on their respective platforms, another big company makes a move. Rockstar Games has announced via Twitter that Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on Steam on December 5.

This announcement puts an end to the exclusivity of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Epic Games Store and it means that all the Steam users that have been eagerly waiting for more than a year for Rockstar’s Western to be released on their platform will finally stop complaining about Epic Games Store. It’s been only a month since Red Dead Redemption 2 was launched on Epic Games Store. Undoubtedly, the strong position of Rockstar Games as the developer of the very popular GTA series has given them a better ground to negotiate with Epic Games, whose exclusive deals with most game developers usually last for a year.

Whatever the case has been, the only truth is that this is great news for the community of PC gamers. Although Red Dead Redemption 2 suffered from some issues when it was released on PC, Rockstar Games has done a very good job addressing them with patches and the game runs very smoothly now. If anything, the late release of the game on Steam may have saved its users a bit of patching time. Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the best games recently released and the single-player campaign is still awesome.

Regarding the multiplayer part of the game, arriving late at Red Dead Online may mean that you have missed a couple of events, but other than that, it’s not a huge difference for your character, as Red Dead Redemption 2 is not a competitive game where you may have a ludicrous difference in your game experience depending on the time you have been playing or your level. So all you have to do if you are willing to enjoy the game on December 5, is visiting our comparator to find the best prices for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC.

Top 10 Games of 2014 – The Year of Nintendo

Story 352688975

 
2014 marked the first full year of the current console generation, but somehow, Nintendo found a way to overshadow that and put out hit after hit on the WiiU and 3DS. Including honorable mentions, Nintendo has a hand in six of the games on this list.

Overall, this year lacked flashy game titles like those associated with Naughty Dog, Rockstar, or even Nintendo. A lot of this games fly under the radar in retrospect, but there are some real gems here, especially from Indie developers. The lineup packs a punch and delivers on some of the most important aspects of gaming: story, replayability, and exciting gameplay. These games amount to hundreds of hours of fun, whether it be with friends or solo.
 

Open All

 
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
 

10. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

 “While the remakes don’t stack up to the GBA classics, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire bring the old favorites to a new generation, along with all the polish of generation 6. Catching them all is easier than ever with the dexnav, super training makes EV training easily accessible to newcomers to the competitive scene, and all your old favorite team members look better than ever. All the little tweaks make this return to Hoenn refreshing and the remastered soundtrack is the perfect cherry on top.” – Max Broggi-SumnerPokémon Ruby and Sapphire have a special place in my heart. It was the first time I had owned both versions of a Pokémon game. I replayed those games at least a dozen times. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire brought back some of my favorite games in vastly superior versions. The soundtrack was revamped, graphics overhauled, and new Pokémon and online features had been added. It makes going back to the original that much more difficult.” – Nathanael Hueso

 
Bravely Default
 

9. Bravely Default

 “Bravely Default is a perfect mixture of new and old JRPG traditions that appeal to players from all eras of gaming. The cutesy art style, epic story of heroes and villains, and job system are bound to draw in fans of the older Final Fantasy games. As to not just copy older traditions and hope to churn nostalgia, Bravely Default also has plenty of newer features that really make it worth playing.“The battle system stands out most here: players can store up their turns using a points system and use them all in one go. Some more powerful moves require you to have saved up a certain amount. Say you want to really lay down the hurt on a boss, you’ll probably want to save up points for your main attacker while maintaining the party’s HP with your White Mage. There are tons of challenging optional bosses too, most of which give you a new job class as a reward for beating them. This means you have to learn the ins and outs of each job before you can even use it.” – Lewis Mackin

 
Alien Isolation
 

8. Alien: Isolation

 “For a first-person, horror title, Alien: Isolation is pretty damn long. What it manages to do, unlike many other scary games, is maintain the player’s sense of helplessness. The Xenomorph is constantly chasing you around the ship …

TESO: a limited time event concludes the Season of the Dragon

We talked about it in a previous article, The Season of the Dragon in The Elder Scrolls Online is coming to an end. During 2019, the new additions to the game focused around the legendary creatures, with a lot of content that included the Elsweyr expansion and three different game packs. The last one of those, Dragonhold, was released last month. If you’ve already left behind the content of Dragonhold, which sent us after the steps of the Dragonguard, the Dragon Season has not yet said its last word and offers, once again, fresh content to the story of The Elder Scrolls Online.

From now until December 9, you can take part in the event called the Dawn of the Dragonguard. To participate, however, you will need to have access to at least some of the content that was included during the Season of the Dragon, namely the Elsweyr expansion, or the Dragonhold, Scalebreaker or Wrathstone packs, which you can purchase through the Crown Shop. You will also have to attain the quest Dawn of the Dragonguard. This event will allow you to participate in various activities, but also to win rewards.

Three activities will bring you additional loot, more precisely, it will be doubled during all the duration of the event:

Defeating a zone Dragon in either Southern or Northern Elsweyr

Defeating the final boss in Wrathstone dungeons, Scalebreaker dungeons, or any bosses within the Sunspire trial

Harvesting resource nodes in Northern and Southern Elsweyr

In addition to that, you can collect tickets by fighting dragons from the north and south of Elsweyr, or dragon bosses from the Wrathstone and Scalebreaker dungeons. You will then be able to spend your event tickets with the Impresario to collect new rewards, such as two Jade-Crown Dragonslayer cosmetic items.

TESO – Dawn of the Dragonguard Event Rewards

We do not know yet what The Elder Scrolls Online has in storage for the year 2020, but we hope that the next season will be at the level of what the game offered with the Season of the Dragon in 2019.

Apex Legends increases the level cap and adds new content

Respawn Entertainment has announced that a lot of changes coming to its Battle Royale shooter Apex Legends very soon. The biggest one is a revamp of the leveling system that will increase the level cap to 500 from the 100 maximum level which players can attain right now. Of course, this increase in the number of levels comes with more rewards for the players too, including Apex Packs. After the modification is applied players will receive 20 packs through the first 20 levels, one pack every two levels between 22 and 300, and one pack every five levels between 305 and 500. Although the journey to the maximum level is going to be much longer, the number of Apex Packs that the player will be able to get just by playing the game will also be increased.

But those are not the only rewards for leveling up, and they will also come in forms different than Apex Packs. Every 100 levels milestone, all players will get a Player Level Gun Charm for free. These are new cosmetic items to customize your gun and there will be 36 of them available including legendary ones. You can buy them from the shop and they can appear in Apex Packs too. As a bonus, players will get an extra badge every ten levels over level 100, adding even more customization options to their characters.

Apex Legends – Legendary charm

The best thing about all this is that the new items and Apex Packs that will be added as rewards with the change will be awarded retroactively to players. Therefore, if you are level 100 in Apex Legends already you will have a few packs waiting for you when the system is implemented on December 3, 2019.

With this new leveling system, Respawn Interactive provides Apex Legends’ players with what they have been asking for, giving them even more reasons to play through Apex Legends Season 3.

Modern Warfare launches its first Season next Tuesday

The roadmap for the first Season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been finally revealed and it seems that players have a lot of free content on the way. New maps, gameplay modes, weapons, and Special Ops experiences are included in an update that has been announced as the biggest content drop in all Call of Duty history. All players will have access to the new content for free starting next week and through the duration of the Season One of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare Roadmap

The contents of the update have been detailed too. It will include three multiplayer maps: Crash, Vacant, and Shipment. The three of them are new versions of the maps with the respective names that you could play on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The fans of the series will remember them. The update will also include the Cargo and Atrium maps for Gunfight as well as the Port map for Ground War mode. That’s plenty of new locations and different experiences, but there are also more maps coming as the Season One progresses.

Regarding new gameplay modes, the Season One of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will add the new Reinforce mode, which is a single-life mode where two teams compete to control three flags. The survival party mode Infected will be added to the game too. Both of those are new multiplayer modes, but On Site Procurement (O.S.P.) is a new Gunfight mode that makes both teams start unarmed and you only gather equipment as the match progresses.

Four new Special Ops experiences are arriving with the patch. In Bomb Squad, Grounded and Pitch Black you will have to fight against Barkov’s forces as you try to complete several objectives. On the other hand, the Just Reward experience will have you gathering intel about an enemy financial operation. As the Season One progresses you will see more of these added too.

If all of this free content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not enough for you, you can unlock even more just by playing as you complete the different levels of the Modern Warfare Battle Pass that is also coming next Tuesday with the update. Among its contents, you can find plenty of cosmetic items and two new base weapons: the Ram-7 assault rifle and the Holger-26 rifle.
