Real sports teams are broadcasting fake sports while we isolate

Sitting in a stadium surrounded by thousands of other folks is the exact opposite of self-isolating. To help curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus by preventing large gatherings, sports organizations around the world have been cancelling and postponing their live sports events.

Apex Legends data miners have found some big scary doggos in the game’s files

The last patch Apex Legends received was a big 'un, introducing lots of new Apex content hidden away amongst our game files.
