Feature: An adventure with helicopters

Call Of Duty: Warzone’s mid-match missions are great, let me show you why

We've been fighting to be the last person standing for years now, so new battle royale games have to bring something fresh to the war table. After largely bouncing off Blackout, I didn't think I'd find that in Call Of Duty: Warzone. Then me and my friends found a helicopter and a Bounty Contract, and I was delighted to discover I was wrong.

World of Warcraft is doubling all XP gains to keep its players indoors

We all get those urges from time to time. You're stuck at home, the PC's right there. Surely it's time to start up another World of Warcraft character, right? Unfortunately, that temptation might be harder to resist this month. As an incentive for staying indoors and infection-free, Blizzard have let loose the Winds of Wison, an 100% experience boost for every Azerothian adventurer 'til April…

Overwatch’s new hero Echo is officially “coming soon”

Alright alright, you can stop speculating now because Blizzard have finally confirmed that the long-teased Echo will be Overwatch's next hero. Or, perhaps continue speculating because they've told us next to zilch about her. Although we've seen her pop up in previous animated shorts, today's very brief teaser does not much more than confirm that she's en-route to the game.

You can now go solo in Call Of Duty: Warzone

If your friends are all offline and you're tired of squading up with randoms, rejoice! You can now play solo in Call of Duty: Warzone. Solos mode will still have a total of 150 players dropping into Verdansk so you'll be trading squad support for even more competition. If you're into lone wolfing it, now is your time to shine.

Players are hurling rocks to win Call Of Duty: Warzone’s 1v1 Gulag

The 1v1 fights in Call Of Duty: Warzone's Gulag are meant to be a quick fight where eliminated players who win the standoff get a second chance to respawn with their team. Naturally, players are working on ways to better ensure victory, because they are clever little buggers. They've already figured out how to make the Gulag's "non-lethal" rocks deadly and learned to abuse the…

Overwatch revisits and remixes all three co-op Archives missions

Once more, it's time for the fine folks at Overwatch to put down their guns, stop shooting each other for a moment, pick up their guns again and go blast some robots and armoured goons. It's Archives time, team. With no new story to plug through this time, all three of Overwatch's co-op stories are coming back with wild new variations, alongside the requisite bucket…

Feature: I photoshopped fast food mascots into WW1 for this article.

An egg-hatched moustache man is crucial to Hearthstone now, and I might be losing my mind

Perhaps understandably, given that it's my job to attempt to stay up to date with PC games these days, I don't get to play all my favourites with quite the same regularity. Usually, that's fine - Civilization VI, for example, is always gonna be Civilization VI. Sometimes, it's even a bit of a boon - I'll return to something like Rimworld after a few months…

Diablo 4 previews its frantic family of cannibal monsters

We've not heard a heck of a lot about Diablo 4 since it was officially announced at BlizzCon last year. Blizzard have now published a development update—which they're hoping to do quarterly going forward—responding to feedback from the BlizzCon demo and introducing a nasty family of melee monsters. The update also gives a pretty in-depth look at a few pieces of Diablo 4's interface.

Activision unleash their full arsenal to silence Call Of Duty battle royale leaks

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is probably getting a battle royale. At least, that's if you've been following the leaked photos, trailers, and unintentionally-revealed menu options that have been popping up lately. Naturally, Activision are a bit miffed over these leaks. The publisher has taken a scorched-earth approach to stamping out these rumours - slamming takedown notices against leaked shots and issuing a subpoena against…

Rumour: Animated Overwatch and Diablo TV adaptations are in the works

We all done tossing coins at mutant sellswords yet? Word on the street is there's an Overwatch animated series and Diablo anime in the pipeline over at ActiBlizzion HQ. Look, there's a rumour about a game series floating about every other month (what's up, Halo?), so take all this with a pinch of salt. But if this one's true? Then yeah, I can see those…

Nvidia’s “misunderstanding” led to Activision pulling their games from GeForce Now

Last week, Activision Blizzard's games mysteriously vanished from Nvidia's new streaming service. Well, you can put down your pipes and deerstalkers, detectives. Nvidia's come clean. There was some sort of misunderstanding, see, and it looks like the hardware firm forgot to get all the paperwork in order before putting the publishers' catalogue on GeForce Now.

Activision Blizzard have pulled all their games from GeForce Now

Activision Blizzard have pulled all their games from the GeForce Now game streaming service, according to Nvidia. The service only launched in full last week, after two years in beta, and now none of its subscribers will be able to use it to play Blizzard's games. Sekiro will be missed, for one, as will Overwatch, and the Call Of Duty games. Nobody really wins here.

Overwatch wants to break the meta with Hero Pools and aggressive balancing

There are changes afoot in Overwatch. Blizzard, well aware of long-standing grievances against the state of high-level competitive play, and have come up with two bangers to help breathe some life into their multi-million-dollar team shooter. Overwatch will soon host a new Experimental Card, letting the devs get wet n' wild with whatever balances changes they fancy. Meanwhile, March will arrive with a new Hero…

Google nab the right to stream Activision esports exclusively on YouTube

You snooze you lose, Twitch. Activision Blizzard this week announced a multi-year deal with Google to stream future esports events solely through a plucky little website called YouTube. By nicking exclusive rights to broadcast big-hitters like the Overwatch and Call Of Duty Leagues, Hearthstone and such, Google hope to kick-start their struggling attempts to kickstart streaming on YouTube and topple Twitch's reign over the medium.

Mercy’s Recall Challenge gives the Overwatch medic a more practical set of scrubs

Resident Overwatch Medic Mercy has always looked a little more superhero than surgeon. That's fair, of course - she spends far more time in warzones than the ward. But I doubt skin-tight latex is the sort of thing you'd wear to fill out perscription slips. This week Blizzard kicked off the Mercy Recall Challenge, letting players earn a more professional skin for Dr Angela Zeigel…

Blizzard VP Jeff Kaplan wants Blitzchung’s ban “reduced more or eliminated”

Slowly, but surely, Blizzard have opened up about penalising Hearthstone pro player Ng Wai "Blitzchung" Chung for a pro-Hong Kong protest during October's Grand Championship finals. But after a delivering yet another wholly underwhelming public statement, it's hard to say they've handled the situation well. As it happens, that opinion isn't limited to aggrieved fans. Last Friday, Blizzard vice president Jeff "from the Overwatch team"…

Blizzard blasted by US congressman for letting racism fester in World of Warcraft

Last week, Blizzard once again returned to Anaheim for Blizzcon 2019. But rather than welcoming Blizzard to his city for their annual convention, Rep. Lou Correa - a Democrat congressman for Anaheim, California - accused them of fostering online radicalisation in World of Warcraft. Less than a month after finding themselves in the US Government's crosshairs for their mishandling of a Hearthstone championship protest, Blizzard's…

Diablo IV’s Barbarian looks brutal in 24 minutes of skeleton bashing

Sticks and stones may break on bones, but fists will never fail me. Now that Diablo 4 has emerged from its crypt, soaked in the blood of countless demons and undead ne'er-do-wells, we're starting to get more glimpses into the Action-RPG's grimdark fourth offering. Fitting, then, that our first extended look at the next dungeon-looter isn't some cowardly archer or wimpy wizard, but a brutal…
