"Located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback", the home of Junkrat and Roadhog - Junkertown - is the next Escort Map to become part of regular Overwatch play. Now live in the latest update on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Junkertown represents a slice of that good old post-apocalyptic Australia that we love. Also, the update brings big changes to D.Va and Mercy in the form of revamped abilities.
After the recent controversy with YouTuber PewDiePie and the makers of indie hit Firewatch taking actions against his use of their game, the Steam reviews for Firewatch saw a huge uptick in negative responses. A practice known as 'review bombing' where the only explanation is a targeted campaign to adversely affect a game's review presence on Steam.
Gaming mice usually come in the wired variety. And for good reason, because as a technology wireless can't be trusted 100% all of the time. Or so goes the thinking. To be a wireless mouse is one thing, to be wireless gaming mouse is another. And the Lancehead from Razer certainly fits the bill, with great wireless performance.
It's more than safe to say, now that well over a year has passed, that Gearbox's Battleborn failed to step out of Overwatch's shadow and make a name for itelf. Released around about the same time, both titles being shooters with MOBA sensibilities didn't help. Battleborn being more of a MOBA, with lane-based multiplayer and co-operative story missions. It's actually pretty good all things considered.
Set to the hard-rocking sounds of Mötley Crüe, singing "Kickstart My Heart", today marks the first gameplay trailer for WWE 2K18. Which is out soon, October 13 for PS4 and Xbox One. Anyway, apparently this time around the soundtrack has been produced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who also features in the game as a playable wrestler. So, was it his decision to go Mötley Crüe for this?
You can always count on a Call of Duty story trailer to provide all the right action beats filled with explosions and close-calls. But with Call of Duty: WWII taking the series back to its 1940's roots, this looks pretty special. We haven't seen this level of character and facial detail in a historical Call of Duty before. And boy, do the faces here look good.
Mark your 4K calendars because Microsoft Store Sydney will be featuring playable Xbox One X consoles this Sunday, September 24 from 12pm to 6pm.

"We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected." That's Epic's response to Eurogamer when the news broke that both PS4 and Xbox One players of Fortnite we're happily co-existing in the same digital space. Fortnite reddit users noticed the strange variation in player names that could only mean one thing - a totally different console.
That's another mouthful of a headline, but the stupid tech industry is continually progressing without helpful -- and simple -- explanatory buzzwords. In this case, what we're talking about is being simply referred to as "Intelligent Delivery", a new system where future Xbox One and Xbox One X games and content does away with assets or data that might not be needed from one console user to another. 4K is a good example here, especially for anyone not adopting Xbox One X, where this new "Intelligent Delivery" will recognise a console delivery platform, and leave the larger 4K assets out of any download going to an Xbox One or Xbox One S.
