Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters are using aimbots to headshot new player spawns out of the sky

It turns out Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters can headshot new player spawns out of the sky.

Warzone cheating is one again a hot topic within the Call of Duty community after a recent unannounced banwave ended up with some innocents caught in the crossfire.

Despite developer Infinity Ward's best efforts, cheating in the mega-popular battle royale is still significant enough for it to appear often in Call of Duty subreddits, on social media, and during high-profile players' livestreams.

How Death Stranding PC delivers on Kojima Productions' original vision

Previously a Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive, Kojima Productions' Death Stranding arrives tomorrow on PC - and it's a port that we can recommend without hesitation. While there's limited scalability beyond PS4 in terms of visual features, performance is exemplary - but what's really exciting is that this is a game that's quite unlike anything else on PC. Known for its state-of-the-art, industry-leading character rendering and beautiful environments and effects, Death Stranding is stunning on PC. As a first taste of what the Decima Engine can deliver outside the bounds set by the PlayStation 4 platform, it's astonishing. Not only that, but the PC edition also delivers the horsepower for Kojima Productions to deliver the game the way it was originally intended.

Microsoft Flight Simulator launches August 2020 on PC

Microsoft Flight Simulator comes out on 18th August 2020 for PC, also with Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Asobo Studio's hotly-anticipated pilot sim comes in three editions. The $59.99 standard edition, which includes 20 "highly detailed planes with unique flight models" and 30 hand-crafted airports; the $89.99 deluxe edition, which includes everything in the standard edition plus five additional "highly accurate planes with unique flight models" and five additional "handcrafted international airports"; and the $119.99 premium deluxe edition, which includes everything from the standard edition plus 10 additional "highly accurate planes with unique flight models" and 10 additional "handcrafted international airports". It's the standard edition that's available on day one with Xbox Game Pass for PC.

It's worth noting Heathrow is in the $119.99 premium deluxe edition only, which isn't great given it's the world's seventh-busiest airport and kind of feels integral to the experience. Here's the list:

Lego NES leaks online, costs over £200

Lego NES leaks online, costs over £200

Take a look at this: a Lego NES.

A Chinese website called VJGamer published photos of the thing, showing how it comes with a little telly, controller and cart, with Super Mario Bros. played on-screen. There are 2646 pieces, including a crank attached to the side of the telly that makes Mario move and jump up and down.

German website StoneWars.de reports the landscape moves in the background, and the set can be combined with the Mario figure from the £50 Adventures with Mario Starter Course set to unlock additional functions, including the music. You put the Mario figure on top of the telly to do this.

Blizzard explains what's going on with controller support in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Blizzard explains what's going on with controller support in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Blizzard is making a push with World of Warcraft controller support for upcoming expansion Shadowlands. But, as executive producer John Hight explained to me, this isn't about fitting the game on a PlayStation or Xbox pad. It's about broadening input options for players with disabilities.

"So what we're doing," John Hight told me, "is enabling a lot of the things required for our add-on community to build add-ons for controller support. And it isn't just controllers: we're looking at a number of different devices. But our focus was not to try and make WoW feel like a console game but rather for players with disabilities to have more accessible input devices.

"The first step for us was, 'Hey, there's a lot of signals these controllers - or these devices - use that people can't get at easily so let's first enable that,' and we're trying to work closely with some add-on builders to let them know it's coming. We feel like what will happen is, as these devices come out - hopefully we're going to see even more innovative devices so everybody can participate, not just in WoW but in the online community in general - that we've provided the sufficient hooks for them to be able to integrate with the game."

Nier Re[in]carnation continues to look lovely

Nier Re[in]carnation continues to look lovely

Square Enix just put out a new trailer for Nier Re[in]carnation, the upcoming Nier mobile game, and lovely it looks indeed.

The video shows off a gorgeous atmosphere, plenty of mysterious exploration and of course Nier's trademark enveloping music. We see the combat for the first, too, and it looks like pretty standard party-based hack and slash. It could be turn-based, with touch icons for various abilities. There are waves of enemies (we see strange black monsters) to defeat in combat encounters.

The unnamed protagonist is a girl who wakes up in a place that includes various environments dubbed "cages". As she explores, she is guided by a little ghost called "Mama".

Ubisoft finally shows Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay

Ubisoft finally shows Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay

Today's the day we (officially) saw Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay for the first time - not counting those leaks last week.

Ubisoft showed a decent look during its Ubisoft Forward presentation, and then even more in a post-show deep dive. Eurogamer has also been playing a build of the game ourselves - you can watch that and hear Zoe's thoughts below.

This section shows the climactic fort assault spotted in those leaks, but also some more peaceful gameplay exploring East Anglia and attending a wedding between tribes. Well, it starts peaceful, anyway.

Ah, Sam Fisher. What does Ubisoft have planned for the stealth hero next? A starring role in a new mobile game, it seems.

During the Ubisoft Forward event tonight, the company showed a new trailer for Tom Clancy's Elite Squad, a kind of Tom Clancy all-stars (I know) action RPG for mobile devices drenched in a Fortnite-style graphics style.

Sam Fisher is in the trailer, complete with iconic night vision goggles, alongside characters from the likes of Rainbow Six (Montagne and Caveira), Ghost Recon (El Sueño from Wildlands), and The Division. There are five versus five battles in a campaign mode as well as competitive multiplayer. Tom Clancy's Elite Squad comes out 27th August 2020 on the App Store and the Google Play Store.

Exploring Watch Dogs: Legion's stunningly accurate recreation of London

Exploring Watch Dogs: Legion's stunningly accurate recreation of London

Ubisoft's open-world games are rather famous for their accurate recreations of real-world locations. Exploring the many past and present places they've produced is always a pleasure, but probing a position you actually populate? Now that's a different story.

I was absolutely blown away by how similar Watch Dogs: Legion's vision of a near-future London was when I played through three hours of the game earlier this week. There are of course many parts that have been changed, moulded and repurposed in order to fit in with the gameplay, but for Londoners there are countless familiar locations to visit and in some cases, enter.

I was even able to partially follow the walking route I normally take when heading from The Tower Hotel to London's Tobacco Dock arena for EGX Rezzed. Unfortunately the map doesn't stretch far enough to reach Tobacco Dock, but it does feature a highly realistic version of St. Katherine Docks Marina, which by the way is a lovely place to grab a beer and a burger after the show kicks out. (Aw, now I really miss EGX...)

Far Cry 6 officially confirmed

Ubisoft has now officially announced Far Cry 6 for release on 18th February 2021, following an earlier leak last week.

As we know already, the game stars Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian's Giancarlo Esposito as its antagonist Anton Castillo, a brutal dictator who rules over the game's Cuban-influenced setting.

The casting of Anton Castillo, star of Pixar film Coco, was also confirmed today. He plays Castillo's 13-year-old son Diego: a boy unsure whether to follow in his father's footsteps.
