After spreading his last iced tea over his keyboard and phone, the Guard reports with extra hot game news. Tonight: Play with Quiet in Metal Gear Solid 5, Rocket Leagues crate opportunities revealed, No Man’s Sky Next is live, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six in the mix, and more. Good morning!
Fallout 76? Nah, play Fallout: Miami first
Ho-ly . Sometimes we can be very happy with super fans. Of those people who spend months working on a mod and eventually come up with a world that Bethesda has to swallow. Because yes, why wait and spend 60 (+) euros on Fallout 76, if you can dive into post-apocalyptic Miami before then? At least, the Guard hopes that Fallout: Miami will be released before November 14. In any case, the trailer below shows a lot of good things, and there are already gameplay videos with extremely detailed locations. And that in Miami, with a map that according to the developers will be bigger than the Fallout 4 DLC Far Harbor.
The great thing about all these Fallout mods (including Project Brazil and The Frontier) is that their creators don’t own the rights to the original games, so they have to offer their love baby for free to us, the fans. And if the makers of such a fan mod also take the time for voice acting, a self-contained story and new monsters, then the Guard will start to beat faster. Although that may also be due to the thirtieth ice cream (read: sugar bomb) that he consumes last night. Fallout: Miami doesn’t have a release date yet, but looks set to be worth the wait:
No Man’s Sky Next is almost turning it into a new game, 4K on Xbox One X.
The Guard visited one of his best buddies yesterday afternoon, and went back to work in No Man’s Sky for fun. After about thirty minutes frustrations ran high again, but luckily for us No Man’s Sky: Next dropped. Next is a hefty (free) expansion / overhaul that almost makes a new game of No Man’s Sky, and although the update is already too late for many players – who undoubtedly feel a (bit) screwed by developer Hello Games and all empty promises is, the Guard admits that he was pleasantly surprised.
Multiplayer, more (co-op) quests, much more variety in flora, fauna, NPCs, galaxies, planets, climates and so on, with the bonus of a 3rd person camera (both on foot and in your spaceship ). The resources are better balanced, you can now experience even more on Freighters and (probably) even crashed variants, there is more variety in quests (from feeding animals to archeology), there is a more in-depth craft system, and there is a lot of graphics. overhaul. That better draw distance, fog and other weather effects (but also things like rings around a planet) are a welcome addition.
The update makes everything feel a lot less random, and discovering new planets is really fun again. In addition, the patch notes of the expansion show that the Xbox One X version of the game will also be very eye-catching, with support for native 4K resolution (2160p), and otherwise of course a ‘High Performance’ mode that runs at 1080p. Anyone who has enjoyed No Man’s Sky should definitely return and on the Xbox One this also seems a great entry point; for whom it is too late – well, unfortunately. But the Guard might give the game another chance, should the price of 40 euros ever fall …
Minecraft look-alike / MMO Boundless to play from September 11th
Do you also think the following? “Ha, No Man’s Sky? I can also discover strange worlds in other games! ” Well, you are right, as it turns out last night. Boundless has been given a release date, and to celebrate, developer Wonderstruck Games and PlayStation are dropping a trailer of the MMO sandbox. The voice-over all promises wonderful experiences, but it remains to be seen whether this Minecraft-looking MMO with peckish-haired characters will catch on. In any case, September 11 is the day that we can play it ourselves.
Sneaky Metal Gear Solid 5 update lets you play as Quiet in FOBs
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has gotten an unexpected update, for the first time in almost a year, and fans of Stefanie Joosten probably won’t be able to enjoy it. Players can step into the shoes of Quiet in the so-called Forward Operating Bases, and that means more than a graphic adjustment. Quiet is quite fast and jumps higher than usual (not to mention her sniper rifle) – adjusting her clothing is impossible. But then again, we don’t want her to choke. Nice nonetheless, such an unexpected update with a ‘new’ playable character for canning other people’s bases.
That’s not all, by the way. New Online Development items have been added as well as an additional FOB difficulty setting (“Event FOB ”) At the Event FOBs, the bases you can capture without worrying about another player coming for revenge. Read the full patch notes hererrrr.
A new Hearthstone map of the upcoming expansion
The Hearthstone expansion The Boomsday Project will be released on August 7, and below is a new map that goes along with it (thanks, SamaGame). Yep, a Cloning Device, so it will be nice to copy minions from your opponent. If you want more, you just have to wait two weeks!
FIFA 19 Active Touch System trailer
Hey, FIFA 19 is groundbreaking new and unlike any other FIFA! Just like FIFA 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24, coming soon. Oh, here’s a trailer of the updated Active Touch System, in case you haven’t seen it yet. If you’ve got the hang of it, you can also read Graddus’ preview (part 1).
Ghost Recon Wildlands x Rainbow Six Siege crossover update out now
Wet your chest – it’s easy for the Guard in this heat – to embark on a Rainbow Six Siege crossover mission in Ghost Recon Wildlands. A new update (Special Operation 2) for Wildlands is out for PC, Xbox One and PS4, and part of that is mission Operation Archangel. It is the second major expansion in the latest stream of content, following a Splinter Cell crossover. In the mission you have to chase a special Operative, which you can see more of in the gameplay trailer below.
That’s not all, because there will also be a game mode with permadeath, Ghost Mode. This PVE mode can be played alone and in co-op – with Friendly Fire, so be careful – and promises to be a tough experience. In addition to dying being the end, players’ loadouts are limited to a pistol and a primary weapon. Weapons can only be exchanged on ammo boxes, and every time you reload you will lose the remaining bullets in the magazine.
Furthermore, the update adds two new classes – inspired by Rainbow Six Operators Doc and Smoke – called Surgeon and Toxic. The surgeon is exactly what you expect from it; an Assault class with a Stim Pistol, with which players can be healed and even revived. Mr. Toxic is more of a support, and can use a sulfate bomb drone.
To top it off, the update adds two maps – the snowy Checkpoint in Elimination Mode and the Industrial Factory in Sabotage Mode. NPC teammates can finally be taken out in PvE campaigns, and the classes are balanced. On top of that, you can customize your character’s temperament and gender, not to mention emotes, poses, sayings and Observer mode (with a free-roam camera). And then new Daily Challenges, and an update for the Prestige system. The laundry list – uhh, patch notes can be found here. So, relax.
Character Intro from Base Goku and Vegeta in Dragon Ball FighterZ Trailer
De Wacht has been learning to play the bass guitar for a few months now, so he is pleased to see that the latest Dragon Ball FighterZ trailer is all about Bass Goku. Oh, Base Goku, you said? Well, also nice with that Spirit Bomb and classic colors. And Base Vegeta should not be missed either:
Rocket League developer Psyonix opens booklet about item opportunities in Crates
For the first time since the loot crates were added to Rocket League, about two years ago, Psyonix has announced the odds of the different item types in loot crates. The odds below apply to all crates added since the beginning of the Crates & Keys system. It is important to note that the items in the different rarity levels – Very Rare, Import, etc. – each have an equal chance of appearing. For example, if an Import Crate has three Very Rare items, the chance of each of those three items is the same. Finally, it is determined whether it is a Certified or Painted item, the odds are 1 in 4 for both:
- Rare Item: 55%
- Very Rare Item: 28%
- Import Item: 12%
- Exotic Item: 4%
- Black Market Item: 1%
- Chance of receiving Painted attribute: 25%
- Chance of receiving Certified attribute: 25%
