In a post on the BioWare blog, Chad Robertson, Head of Live Service on Anthem, shared his short-term vision for the game with a look at the first 90-day roadmap of what the live-service team has planned.

It can be tough enough for some of us to win in Respawn Entertainment's hit battle royale shooter Apex Legends. But one player has decided to take a unique tactic to playing the legend Pathfinder — using a modified Spider-Man web shooter toy as a controller.

Louis Hamilton, ATwerkinYoshi on Reddit, posted his awesome controller mod, which activates Pathfinder's grappling hook ability with the press of a Spider-Man glove. Mimicking the webhead's iconic motion, Hamilton presses down with his middle and ring finger on a modded web shooter glove, which launches Pathfinder's grapple.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Is a Sci-Fi 4X with XCOM-Like Tactical Battles

about X hours ago from

Of all the varied visions of the future we see in games, some of my favorites have always been the ones that include dinosaurs. Age of Wonders: Planetfall doesn’t skimp on these Cretaceous throwbacks, and it’s all the better for it. Combining a detailed 4X campaign layer with XCOM-like tactical battles, Triumph’s first foray into sci-fi has a lot of elements that will look familiar to a turn-based strategy veteran. But the way they’re assembled is not quite like anything I’ve played before.

The backdrop for all this hex-based expanding, exploring, and exterminating is that there used to be a grand, galactic government that ruled over settled space peacefully, and everything was great. You know, unless you were a slave. Every shining beacon of spaceborne civilization has to have a rotting, decadent core after all.

With the number of players jumping into Apex Legends sky-rocketing, it's only natural demand for new skins and unlockables to increase. It's possible to earn new cosmetics simply by playing, but purchasing Apex Legends coins is a fast-track way to getting extras (although you're not guaranteed to get what you want).

Apex Legends coins are only used to unlock cosmetics, characters and weapons - they do not provide any actual advantage in the game, so it's not 'pay-to-play' via the currency.
