Blizzard has published a new video teasing Overwatch's upcoming Deathmatch map, Petra.

"Take in Petra’s majestic views, from high vistas to twisting passageways and deep caverns. A dilapidated bridge stretches across the map, and the ground underneath

Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Mode Has Been in Development Since Last Year

There will be no single-player Campaign mode, with resources instead diverted to multiplayer, three maps for Zombies, narrative-driven missions for each of the Specialists in multiplayer, and Blackout, the series’ first Battle Royale mode. The idea for Blackout, said Treyarch’s co-studio head Dan Bunting, started when many members of the team were playing Battle Royale games early last year. Indeed, PLAYERUNKNOWN was quick to recognize the influence of his own game on the Blackout mode, taking t

Destiny 2’s Crucible Ranking System Needs a Lot of Work

However, Crucible Ranking in Destiny 2 is hardly what those players envisioned; in fact, it’s quite bad in its current iteration. The Glory ranking system is practically the same as the Valor system, except players lose Glory for losses and there is a loss streak in addition to the win streak. If they beat a player that is Glory Rank 4 or a player that is Glory Rank 1, the boost to their personal Glory is still the same. The whole point of a ranking system is to help players see where they stand

This perfect run of a custom Beat Saber VR track will blow your mind

Star Wars meets Guitar Hero is the elevator pitch for Beat Saber, an Early Access VR rhythm game that's making waves on Steam. You can watch one such custom track played in the video above, and it's mind-bogglingly cool. In Beat Saber, you have to hit each block from a particular direction, so he almost looks like proper Jedi, twirling his laser swords to get the right angles. He's using ProTube VR, which can hold one VR controller on each end, essentially combining the two lightsabers into one.

This BattleTech mod unlocks the entire map early so you can explore outside the campaign

A mod released this week changes that, opening up the entire map early in the campaign. You'll still need to play a few hours to unlock it, completing the tense Liberation of Weldry campaign mission. The game's campaign is fun, but I prefer the feeling of being a freelance mercenary, earning money through contracts to balance the books and pay wages while building up my fleet of mechs. This mod should play into that fantasy by giving you more freedom to play the way you want. For it to work, you
