One of Call of Duty: Warzone’s underbarrel shotguns is acting more like a sniper rifle

Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare’s fifth season is underway, and players have discovered a potential oversight. The new season increased the range for the FR 556 rifle, and at least one YouTuber thinks it may have broken another aspect off the gun: the underbarrel shotgun.

In Call of Duty: Warzone, players can attack underbarrel shotguns to some of their weapons, allowing them to swap to a short-range weapon very quickly without taking up a second weapon slot. According to TheXclusiveAce, the FR 556’s underbarrel shotgun is normally a two to three shot kill — not as potent as the average shotgun. But since the patch, the FR 556’s underbarrel kills in a single shot from long range.

Hades coming to Nintendo Switch, complete with cross-save

During Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase on Tuesday, Supergiant Games revealed its plans to bring Hades to the Switch this fall. Fans who already own Hades can also transfer their progress over with cross-save.

Hades, currently in early access, takes place in the Greek underworld. Players take on Zagreus, the son of lord Hades himself, as he tries to emancipate himself from his overbearing father by escaping Hell. Zagreus enlists help from his aunts and uncles — other gods in the Greek pantheon — to defeat ancient monsters and escape.

Untitled Goose Game is getting a second goose and local co-op

Untitled Goose Game is getting a free update on Sept. 23: A second terrible goose will be added to the game. Yes, this means that Untitled Goose Game will have a local two-player cooperative mode. Now, you and a pal can terrorize a village farmer and his neighbors.

The new goose is the same species as the original, but it’s got its own unique honk — thank goodness — and a more prominent knob. On its beak. If you must know, it’s called a basal knob and yes, I googled “bump on goose beak” to find this out.

What is the Court of Owls, the teased villain of the new Batman game?

After over a year of teases WB Montreal appears to be getting ready to finally announce what looks to be a new Batman game that will pit the Caped Crusader against some of his most powerful and recently invented foes: The Court of Owls. We won’t get details until the publisher’s panel at DC FanDome on Saturday, but for now we can at least tell you what — or who — the Court of Owls is.

The Court was created by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo for their legendary run on Batman, which kicked off in the fall of 2011, making them about two years younger than the the Batman: Arkham series itself. But the Court of Owls isn’t just a group of villains. It’s also a major addition to the world-building tools that make up Gotham City.

Deathloop delayed to next year, says Arkane

Deathloop, the next game from Dishonored and Prey makers Arkane Studios, is delayed until spring 2021, the studio said Tuesday morning.

In a message sent by Twitter, Arkane attributed the delay to work disruptions caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. “As we’ve adjusted to work-from-home, we found that delivering this new and exciting experience, at the polish and quality level that defines both an Arkane game and a true next-gen experience, is taking longer than normal.”

Apex Legends’ season 6 patch completely changes the game’s armor system

Apex Legends’ season 6 patch completely changes the game’s armor system

After weeks of teasing and previews, Apex Legends season 6 is finally here. While additions like Rampart, the new Legend, the new Volt SMG, and the World’s Edge map changes, were announced ahead of time, there are still plenty of changes to the game that came with this season’s first patch.

The biggest change is to the armor system of Apex Legends. All of the armor in Apex Legends is now Evo Armor, which automatically upgrades itself to the next quality tier the more damage you do. Armor that players find around the map will still come in different varieties like Blue, which has three bars of shield, or purple, which has four bars of shield, but if you do more damage after equipping the armor it can be promoted to the next tier up. The only exception to this is Gold-quality armor, which is outside of the Evo pool.

Elite: Dangerous expansion aims to give players their own ‘Neal Armstrong moment’

Frontier Developments’ upcoming expansion to Elite: Dangerous, called Odyssey, will allow players to set foot on alien worlds for the first time.

In a new trailer for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, fans get a glimpse at what it will be like to exercise their “space legs” for the first time, as well as the first details on the game’s new genetic sampling tool. It all looks very exciting but, even after an interview with the developers, many of the specifics of how this new expansion will work still seem to be up in the air.
