Fallout 76's map is called Appalachia, Bethesda confirms

Fallout 76's map is called Appalachia, Bethesda revealed this week. In real life the Appalachian region, which contains the Appalachian Mountains, stretches up the Eastern US, from northern Alabama to southern New York state. West Virginia, where we already knew the game is set, sits fully within Appalachia, so the name isn't a huge surprise.

Dead Cells is getting a Custom Mode before end of the year

Dead Cells, one of the best action platformers on PC, has now been out for more than a month, giving the team time to go to the pub, hang out on a beach, and play games that aren't Dead Cells for a change—so they said in a new dev update. They also shared their plans for post-launch content, starting with a new game mode called Custom Mode, which will arrive in the game's beta test branch in late October or early November.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider launched with a different ending that was patched out on day one

If you played Shadow of the Tomb Raider all the way to the end, then you know how it ends. (Obviously.) But as Kotaku reported today, the game shipped with a very different ending, one that referenced a significant character from Core Design's original 1996 Tomb Raider. That ending was changed in a day-one patch, so most players would never see it, or even realize it ever existed.

Destiny 2: Forsaken players find easy new way to loot chest in the Last Wish raid

Nearly a week before the release of Last Wish, Destiny 2: Forsaken's new raid, players not only found a way into the raid area and up to a raid chest, they also happened upon a sketchy method to repeatedly loot the chest, with some players obtaining full raid gear sets before Last Wish was even released. Now that the raid is actually out, players have focused their secret-hunting efforts on the mysterious Wall of Wishes found at the start of the raid, and after a little tinkering they've uncovered an easy, legitimate way to loot a raid chest. It doesn't reward powerful gear, but it is a fun and fast way to nab some Last Wish weapons and armor.

Overwatch League's new California Cup aims to heat up a regional rivalry

Regional rivalries are a common phenomenon in sports of all kinds. Around here, for instance, we have the Battle of Ontario, an semi-annual NHL ritual in which Toronto and Ottawa do battle for seasonal bragging rights on their way to not making the playoffs. Two Overwatch League teams hope to establish something similar with the California Cup, an off-season event that will pit the Los Angeles Valiant and the San Francisco Shock against one another in the league's first home-and-home competition.
