Shadow of Mordor Gets an Update Without Any Info, Players Think It Might Be for Transferring Saves

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has received a mysterious update for consoles (v1.10) and PC, patch notes for which Monolith Productions has yet to reveal. It’s unusual to not have any official information, which has paved way for speculation about what the update does but what we do know so far is that it varies in size across platforms. Over on Reddit, users are reporting a wide range of download sizes, from 50MB to 6GB on PlayStation 4 alone. The common assumption is that the patch might have been released to allow players to transfer their save data over to the upcoming sequel, Shadow of War, when it launches this October. Back in March, GamesRadar quizzed Monolith’s Michael de Plater about allowing players to import save files but he wasn’t able to comment at the time. We’ll find out what the update does in due course and will keep our readers posted. [Source: Reddit(1)(2) via Destructoid, WB Games Community] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

New Overwatch Update Today Adds the Horizon Lunar Colony Map

[embedded content] With the new Overwatch update now rolling out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Blizzard has added the Horizon Lunar Colony Assault map. Here’s the description for Horizon Lunar Colony: Horizon Lunar Colony is an Assault map set in a scientific base on the moon. Built as a first step towards humanity’s renewed exploration of space, the colony’s goal was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising…until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost. Now, many years later, attacking and defending teams must return to the moon and battle for control of the colony’s facilities, all while they discover clues as to the fate of its previous inhabitants. On their forums, Blizzard said Horizon Lunar Colony would be disabled in Competitive Play for the first week, but then later revealed that the server tech to do that isn’t available yet: Apologies everyone but I was mistaken about Horizon Lunar Colony being disabled in Competitive Play during this week. We are considering this for future map releases but server tech for it isn’t available right now. New heroes are disabled for the first week, READ FULL STORY…

Several months ago, a Redditor discovered the mention of momentum and adaptive difficulty in FIFA 17’s files, suggesting that the game changes based on your performance. Speaking with Eurogamer, Creative Director Matt Prior discussed momentum: It’s something we often get asked. Is there something in there that scripts things? I can assure you there absolutely isn’t. It is just football. That kind of thing happens in football. Prior adds that “there is error in some of the algorithms for traps,” but “that’s all measured on an individual level. It doesn’t take into account, oh, this is 1-0 in the 90th minute, let’s give this guy more error. It’s very much individual. And as a result it can happen at any time.” The next FIFA title, FIFA 18, releases on READ FULL STORY AT…
