Here's how Respawn might be changing Apex Legends' Lifeline

Listen up, Lifeline fans - Respawn is tweaking the abilities of Apex Legends' OG support character.

In a recent AMA on reddit, the Respawn team fielded a number of queries and questions from Apex players, including one from CSKaay who wanted to know "how is Lifeline's kit being handled?" in the upcoming round of tweaks and improvements.

In a list of several thoughtful questions, the commenter suggested that "regardless of whether her ult[imate ability] gets changed or buffed, [Lifeline's] passive needs a 10-20 second delay between revives". And it looks like Respawn agrees.

Is Sega remastering Sonic Colors?

Is Sega remastering Sonic Colors?

It looks like Sega may be remastering 2010's Sonic Colors.

According to a German voiceover studio called iksample (thanks, Gematsu), the team worked on the remaster at the end of 2020, although the webpage that originally leaked that information has now been taken down.

French retailer Sogamely (via NintendoEverything) has listed the hitherto unannounced Sonic Colors Ultimate for sale on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One with a vague "2021" release window provided, although it's unclear if the store listed the game before or after these rumours came to light. Curiouser and curiouser, eh?

There's a secret co-op mode hidden in The Binding Of Isaac: Repentance

Modders have discovered a co-op mode hidden in The Binding Of Isaac: Repentance.

Just ten days after the game was released (thanks, NME), dataminers discovered the launch command "networktest" hidden in the code, and soon realised that it permitted the game to be played in co-op via the game's debug console.

The discovery is particularly interesting given there's never been any mention of co-op coming to the game, and it's still clearly marked as a singleplayer adventure on Steam.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint's first

We already knew that Ubisoft had promised new updates were coming to Ghost Recon Breakpoint throughout 2021, and now we have the detail courtesy of a content roadmap and information about two "major title updates".

In an blog on the official website, the team says it is "thrilled" to be bringing free content throughout 2021, stating that its "vision is to continue adding on to what we have built together since the launch of the game, including more customisation, progression, and added replay-ability, among others". It also promises more quality and technical improvements, too.

First up is Title Update 4.0.0. This update - releasing soon at the "end of spring" - will continue to improve the experience of AI teammates "while also adding some community requested features". There'll also be a new XP progression for your AI squad, new passive skills and abilities to unlock as you play, plus a dedicated quest log and "cool and exclusive rewards".
