In all the hubbub of the week, you might’ve missed some of the patches and updates rolled out to games. Presenting the Weekly Updates Update, a noncomprehensive roundup of new maps and characters and balance tweaks and fixes and such which caught my eye over the week – including a few we haven’t posted about.
This week, Destiny got a new dungeon, Battlefield went to the Pacific, WWE 2K20 got a little less busted, and Halloween continued.
New maps, factions, vehicles, and weapons are in as the fight expands to somewhere sunnier.
The new three-player dungeon, Pit of Heresy, is pretty fun! Also, the new public wave survival mode Altars of Sorrow is great for being a big idiot who just wants to spawncamp moonmonsters.
The Halloween event is a cooperative battle against a honking great multi-phase boss. Fortnite PvE? It’ll never catch on.
That’s a thing. Steam Remote Play Together, the handy tech which lets you play local multiplayer online with non-local friends, is now in there for everyone too.
But considering how it started, that’s not saying much.
This is my redemption song.
Actual fraudulent money laundering. Might wanna look at your whole economy a bit closer there, Valve.
Sadly, this is nothing to do with Bloodborne. The update added a system which sounds similar to Shadows Of Mordor’s Nemesis? A Kuva Lich boss will build an organisation of minions we’ll need to put the squeeze on to track down and end the Lich. The melee system overhaul continued too.
They are ADORABLE.
