Anthem Update Changes Loot But Creates New Complaints

about X hours ago from

EA and BioWare have released the newest update for Anthem, and it's a big one. The update is now live and it adds several new features to the multiplayer-focused action game, including something called Legendary Missions, as well as changes to loot, Masterworks, Javelins, and quite a bit more. However, some players have already raised complaints about new problems involving loot that emerged since the update's release.

As detailed in the patch notes, Update 1.0.4 adds a new Legendary difficulty to critical path missions. From now on, one critical path mission per day will be available for repeated playthroughs. You can replay these missions on Legendary for an added challenge that requires "team coordination to achieve victory." The patch notes don't reveal whether the higher risk will necessarily always result in higher rewards.

Elysian Keys can now be earned as a reward for completing daily challenges in Anthem. In turn, these keys can open the Elysian Caches that appear at the end of every Stronghold mission. Caches hold vanity items--there is a unique assortment of 67 vinyls, victory poses, emotes, and arrivals--and crafting materials. In the patch notes, EA promises that you will "never get a duplicate vanity item" from an Elysian Cache.

Earth Day is only a few weeks away, and Pokemon Go developer Niantic is encouraging players to go out and help clean up the environment. The company announced it is once again partnering with Playmob for its second annual Earth Day campaign, an initiative to get players to tidy up their community--and potentially unlock some bonuses in Ingress and Pokemon Go.

Throughout April, Niantic and Playmob will hold cleanup events in communities around the world. Players will be able to search and sign up for these events through the official website, or nominate an NGO to organize their own local cleanup.

Just as last year, Niantic will offer special bonuses in Pokemon Go depending on how many players turn out for the cleanup events. These rewards range from increased Ground-type Pokemon spawns to the first appearance of Shiny Diglett. You can see the potential bonuses below, while additional details about the Earth Day campaign can be found on Niantic's blog.

Sekiro Lady Butterfly Boss Guide: How To Beat The Illusionist

All the bosses of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are pretty tough, but Lady Butterfly represents a significant change of pace when you encounter her in Hirata Estate. She's a brutally fast boss who deploys ranged attacks against you, and who has some illusion-based tricks up her sleeve that are tough to deal with.

You'll find Lady Butterfly at the end of the Hirata Estates level. The fight is broken into two parts, so note that while you might pull off a deathblow on her, she's not down for the count. The second part of the fight sees Lady Butterfly up the ante significantly with new moves and faster attacks, so you'll need to be on your game with your deflections to survive. But the most effective way to take her down is with consistent attacks that get under her guard.

Read on to find everything you need to know to defeat Lady Butterfly below and in the video above, including where to find some items that'll give you an edge against her and her illusions. We've got lots more Sekiro guides for your perusal as well, including ones on where to find key early-game prosthetics, and how to beat Juzou the Drunkard, the Chained Ogre, and the Blazing Bull.
