Daybreak To Sunset H1Z1: Just Survive

Daybreak's standalone survival game H1Z1: Just Survive just couldn't live up to its name. In a letter to players on the official website, the developer announced plants to retire the game later this year.

"After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to sunset Just Survive on Wednesday, October 24 at 11 a.m. PT," the letter reads. "The excitement of the game’s promise was palpable and its loyal community is still full of ideas for its future. Unfortunately, we are no longer in a position to fulfill its greatness and the current population of the game makes it untenable to maintain."

While the survival game's time is coming to an end, H1Z1's battle royale game King of the Kill is still alive and kicking on PS4 and PC. The studio said this past April that it is "open to exploring" other platforms like the Xbox One as well.

The popular teenage YouTube personality Trevor "McSkillet" Heitmann's life came to an early end when he veered his speeding McLaren 650S sports car into oncoming traffic along the I-805 freeway in San Diego this past Thursday. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, the accident involved more than a dozen cars and also took the lives of a 43-year-old mother and her 12-year-old daughter. The Times reports he was driving more than 100 mph at the time of the crash.

Heitmann, 18, rose to popularity playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and trading skins for the popular competitive shooter. At the time of his death, he had nearly 900,000 followers on his YouTube channel. He also owned the popular skin trading website CS:GO Magic, which Valve shut down during its recent crackdown on gambling sites.

Director's Commentary Released For D.Va's Animated Short

Overwatch fans always have something to look forward to, whether it's a new hero, map, mode, or animated short. This week, Blizzard gave the faithful community two things to get excited about: news of a new Busan Map, and the long overdue animated short for D.Va, called "Shooting Star."

You can now learn how Blizzard put this exciting look into D.Va's life together in a video featuring commentary by director Ben Dai and editor Jake Patton. They outline just how difficult it was to find a balance between the upbeat D.Va we know from the game, and what she's like when she isn't in front of the camera.

If you haven't seen the animated short yet, you can view it below.

Dota 2 Introduces A New Hero, Another Coming This Winter

Dota 2 Introduces A New Hero, Another Coming This Winter

Dota 2 players have a new hero to get to know. Grimstroke was added to the game last night, and appears to be quite powerful. Game Informer's Dan Tack says Grimstroke is "OP as hell." This frightening new face is listed as a ranged, support, escape, disabler, and is said to be able to manipulate the battle from the outskirts. He apparently uses a brush to paint a painful path of ink, and can even cover himself in ink. He can also summon a phantom that uses its claws to tear at enemies, and can bind enemy souls so they can't move away from each other.

We also learned of Mars, another new hero who is coming this winter. We don't know much about him yet, as he just teased in a video. If the video says anything about who he will be in game, he wields a giant spear and shield, and can apparently summon soldiers to fight at this side. You can check out both heroes in the video below:

Ominous Purple Cube Appears In Fortnite

Ominous Purple Cube Appears In Fortnite

Fortnite Battle Royale's map would be a terrible place to live, not just from the constant barrage of firefights that occur in every neighborhood, but by the unstable sky, which just spit out a giant, purple cube. The rift that has been a fixture in the map's sky is not just a pretty thing to look at; it may be controlled by aliens or something worse. The rift became active recently, spitting out lightning strikes in the desert. That electrical storm gave way to the cube, which sometimes looks like it contains a universe in its square walls, and other times appears to hold symbols.

You can see the origin of the cube below, which was captured by LootLake.
