See How Far Cry 5's Hope County Has Changed In Far Cry New Dawn

YouTuber Louay Khemiri pieced together a side-by-side comparison of Far Cry 5 and Far Cry New Dawn's shared backdrops. The lush meadows and dense woodlands of Far Cry 5 have been meticulously replaced with barren wastelands and ashen color palettes. In more open areas, the neon-pink flowers and glimmering sky-auroras of New Dawn add a psychedelic element as opposed to 5's organic greens and blues. Additionally, New Dawn features shrubbery overgrowth as a side-effect of society's prophesied decline.

Report: New Characters Coming To Apex Legends Leaked

Report: New Characters Coming To Apex Legends Leaked

Apex Legends has had a charmed release, but already players want more - and based on the digging of some dataminers, new characters are not far away. We know that the battlepass is scheduled to hit next month, and these new legends could be part of a larger rollout.

There's a longer list of names and other fare to dig through from the mining, but the two characters in question are Octane and Wattson. Octane apparently has some sort of stimpack ability with potential performance enhancing effects, while Wattson has a Tesla Trap, fitting with the character's "electric" name.

While datamining isn't an exact science in terms of what makes it into the final game, these seem like fairly reasonable discoveries. Until then, keep dropping into those hotspots and check out our review here!

VR Game Apex Construct Gets Sales Boost From People Mistaking It For Apex Legends

In a bizarre yet bountiful case of mistaken identity, developer Fast Travel games revealed that its VR title Apex Construct has received a big boost in sales...because people keep mistaking it for Apex Legends. Yikes.

Fast Travel's communications manager Andreas Juliusson took to the Construct's subreddit to talk about the situation. Juliussion implies the studio is amused by the mixup but also mentions that Apex Construct has been bombed with negative reviews because of it. Here's the full statement:

Hi all, Andreas from VR games developer Fast Travel Games here!

Anthem's Quickplay Option Loading Under-Leveled Players Into The Final Mission

Anthem's Quickplay Option Loading Under-Leveled Players Into The Final Mission

Anthem, Bioware's first live service game, has had its fair share of problems since the VIP demo back in January with players experiencing glitches, unable to load the game, and various other problems. Those issues were mostly solved with the second demo. However, Origins Premier PC players who are getting their hands on the full version of Anthem before everyone else are experiencing new issues.

Several players are reporting a particularly nasty surprise where choosing quickplay will load under-leveled players into the final mission of the game. One streamer, Brandon Larned, recorded a video that supposedly shows a level 3 player entering the mission. We can't see the players' levels or comment on whether or not what's seen here is part of the final mission but given the multiple reports and the genuine surprise in everyone's voices in this clip, it's likely this issue is real. You can watch the video below if you don't mind spoilers:

Don't use quickplay if you're new to Anthem. It can backfill you into the final mission of the story and spoil. This level 3 got in my mission. He ended up leaving, but a lvl 2 backfilled 5~ mins later and didn't.
