Anthem Getting Refunded For Some Users Following PS4 Crash Bug

about X hours ago from

Anthem has had a rocky launch, from middling reviews to bugs. The most severe of these problems has been crashing bugs on PS4, causing the entire system to shut down improperly. PlayStation 4 users have been vocal about the problem, and EA is aware of the issue. In the meantime, though, Sony is offering refunds to at least some affected users.

Variety reports that several users on Reddit claimed they had been given refunds from Sony's support chat. The support center is said to only ask a series of account verification questions, since Sony is already aware of the pervasive crashing issue. Other users claim they were refused a refund, and Sony hasn't issued an official statement offering refunds.

EA, meanwhile, is in the midst of gathering data about the crashing bug so that it can work on a fix. It has requested that impacted users submit information including your make of console, PSN ID, whether you submitted a crash report through the console itself, and any other details.

Destiny 2 Patch Notes: Updates To Gambit, Tons Of Weapon Changes

about X hours ago from

The Season of the Drifter has come to Destiny 2, kicking off the start of the second of three content expansions as part of the game's current Annual Pass. Along with the new season, Bungie has dropped a big update for the game that makes a bunch of changes to Gambit mode--which is central to the new content--and looks like it nerfs a whole lot of weapons.

As Bungie detailed on its blog, Update 2.2.0 rejiggers a lot of how Gambit works. First off, the third round of every Gambit match is now more of a sudden death affair, where the Primeval boss enemy spawns immediately instead of after a round of collecting motes, thus speeding things up considerably.

The Taken blockers you can send against your foes in Gambit matches have been changed as well: gone are the Taken Phalanx, Knight, and Ogre. They've been replaced by a Taken Goblin as the small blocker, with less health than the Phalanx; a Taken Captain as the medium blocker, with more health than the Knight; and a Taken Knight as the large blocker, with more health than the Ogre. The update also lays the groundwork for Gambit private matches, which Bungie says are due to hit the game on April 2.

Red Dead Online Update Out Now, Adds Classic Red Dead Redemption Weapon And New Event

about X hours ago from

Rockstar has rolled out another update for Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer component, Red Dead Online. This week, the developer has brought back a popular weapon from the first Red Dead Redemption and kicked off a new Free Roam event, Fool's Gold.

In Fool's Gold, players vie over control of a ridiculous-looking suit of Golden Armor. The one wearing the armor will receive a defense boost and earn points for gunning down other players, while everyone else will compete to bring them down and take the armor for themselves.

In addition to the Fool's Gold event, Rockstar has added a new gun to Red Dead Online: the Evans Repeater, one of the rifles John Marston wielded in the first Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar describes the gun as "a powerful long-range rifle" that is "deadly at medium and long distances." It can be purchased from Rawson, Wheeler & Co. or other gunsmiths.

Destiny 2's Ascendant Challenge Location Guide Week 3 (March 5-12)

about X hours ago from

The latest weekly refresh of Destiny 2 brings the release of the next content expansion in the game's Annual Pass, Joker's Wild. That means there's a new season--the Season of the Drifter--new activities, and new loot. It also means the Power level cap has been raised, requiring even more grinding to get up to max level--and another Ascendant Challenge is now available to help you earn Powerful gear to climb toward the new cap. This week's challenge is the third of six that repeat in Forsaken. Here's where its portal is located and what to do inside.

If you've done an Ascendant Challenge (or several at this point) before, you'll have an idea of how this goes. Start out by buying the appropriate bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City. Alongside that, you'll need a Tincture of Queensfoil. Once you consume that, you get the Ascendance buff that allows you to see the Taken portal--after you've found it.

This particular portal is located in the Spire of Keres; you can see its location in the video above. Go through it to visit the Shattered Ruins in the Ascendant Plane, where are tasked with climbing a tower made of rocks without dying. Enemies will try to snipe you, and Taken rifts will try to boop you off the tower to your death. Be careful with where you move as you go toward the top; once you're there, kill the boss to complete the Ascendant Challenge.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Trailer Breakdown

Game Of Thrones Is Coming

The first real trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones is finally here. It may be a total bummer knowing that this is the last time we'll see this cast of characters embarking on their journey toward the Iron Throne--or continuing to rule over it like jerks--but Season 8 promises to be nothing short of epic.

Coming in at a little more than two minutes, the trailer is jam-packed with characters we've come to know and love in vastly different situations than we're accustomed to seeing them in. From what's left of the Stark family fighting for their lives to Cersei Lannister relaxing, drinking while pregnant, and plotting, we have a decent idea of what's going down in the final season.

So we went through the trailer, frame by frame to breakdown what we think is going to happen in Season 8 of Game of Thrones. However, we won't know for sure until the series returns to HBO on Sunday, April 14.
