You Can Get 100 Overwatch League Tokens If You Sign Up For The League's Email List

Since their introduction more than two years ago, Overwatch League Tokens have rarely been given out without asking you to pay real-world money. While you've been able to earn a pittance for watching Overwatch League matches, you would need to watch 100 maps of play just to earn $5 worth of tokens. However, Blizzard has announced an easy way to earn that many tokens without spending money or very much time.

Everyone who has a valid copy of Overwatch, an account in good standing, and signs up for the Overwatch League email list by April 29 will earn 100 Tokens, which would normally cost $5. If you play on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you must first link your PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account to your Battle.net account. Then, when you fill out your form, you must use the same email address associated with your Battle.net account. Even if you already are signed up for the Overwatch League email list, confirming your information will still earn you the 100 tokens.

With 100 Overwatch League Tokens, you can purchase one team-specific skin for a hero of your choosing, or get halfway to affording one of the premium, exclusive items, like the new Thunder Doomfist skin or the legendary turntable Lucio emote, each of which cost 200 Overwatch League Tokens.

Fallout 76: Wastelanders' Launch Trailer Shows NPCs, Story, And Plenty Of Action

Fallout 76: Wastelanders' Launch Trailer Shows NPCs, Story, And Plenty Of Action

On April 14, Bethesda Game Studios is releasing Wastelanders, a free expansion to Fallout 76 that adds a new story and NPCs for players to interact with. The launch trailer gives you a look at some of the new faces you'll meet, along with teases of their story lines and areas where they will unfold.

Fallout 76's launch was botched by technical difficulties, but the wasteland set in West Virginia showed plenty of potential, especially how Bethesda latched onto the region's folklore. I'm hoping that element somehow comes into play within the new storyline. Players will have some say in how it unfolds through NPC conversation choices.

Are you looking forward to returning to Fallout 76 to play through the Wastelanders DLC? Let us know in the comments section below.

Bloober Team Teasing Observer System Redux For Next-Gen Systems

Bloober Team Teasing Observer System Redux For Next-Gen Systems

Bloober Team is teasing something related to its 2017 psychological horror game based in a cyberpunk/sci-fi setting. While the teaser trailer doesn't say much about what we can expect, it does give us the name Observer System Redux, pointing to this being either a remaster or extended version of Observer for next-gen systems.

We liked Observer when it launched in 2017, with our reviewer, Javy Gwaltney, giving it a 9 out of 10 and calling it, "a horrifying but brilliant marriage of sci-fi and horror." You can see the brief teaser below.

People Are Dreaming Up Different Colors For The DualSense Controller

People Are Dreaming Up Different Colors For The DualSense Controller

From wild colors to designs that reflect specific games, Twitter users are having fun giving Sony's new controller, the PlayStation 5 DualSense, a makeover. Like most things that hit the internet, the DualSense has received mixed reactions, some praising the new form factor and stylish design, and others taking it to task for, well, the same reasons. I fall into the camp of thinking it looks awesome. The white and black mesh well, and the small stripe of blue light gives it a science-fiction look.

Following the DualSense's reveal yesterday, Twitter users wasted no time seeing how the DualSense looks when the colors are altered. Some people tried to create variations they wouldn't mind buying, while others just wanted to see how ugly or silly it could look. I added a couple of joke tweets for good measure. Enjoy the roundup!

Google Makes Stadia Pro Free For Two Months

Google Makes Stadia Pro Free For Two Months

Several months ago Google launched Stadia to lackluster fanfare. In our experience, the underlying technology is promising, but the lack of unique features and must-play games really hurts the platform. Google is slowly updating Stadia, so that may be changing. If you're curious to try game streaming yourself, you can now sign up for a free two-month test run of Stadia Pro. 

Stadia Pro members get assess to nine games for free, including Grid, Destiny 2: The Collection, Thumper, Gylt, Serious Sam Collection, Spitlings, Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks), SteamWorld Dig 2, and SteamWorld Quest. Personally, I recommend checking out Thumper and the SteamWorld games if you never played them. Hopefully, this helps your quarantine run a little smoother.

It's worth noting that this isn't the free tier for Stadia that Google has promised since last year. Rather, Stadia Pro is Google's paid service that normally costs $9.99 a month and includes a selection of free games as well as the highest quality streams. We don't have any updates on when Google will roll out the permanently free tier, but with this free trial you can purchase additional games separately to play through Stadia's service. Thankfully, you get to keep any of the purchases you make during this free trial, and if you're already a paid Stadia Pro subscriber, you won’t be charged for the next two months.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 3 Is Live Now

Season 3 hits Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone today on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Perhaps the biggest highlight is that you can now play with 4 players in Warzone (up from 3), so grab another friend to get started on that new season battlepass in some battle royale action. But Modern Warfare is getting plenty of new things too, including 3 new maps - Talsik Backlot, Hovec Sawmill, and Aniyah Incursion.

A brand new battle pass contains another 100 tiers to get through and contains a boatload of cosmetics and other fun things to unlock. Check out the trailer below!
