Furthermore, prizes and giveaways will be up for grabs for those that participate in the conversation, including some great MixPot giveaways.
Monster Hunter: World
There’s no denying that Monster Hunter: World is one hell of a well rounded experience, and it’s selling like hotcakes, I might add. Capcom has just announced that the game has shipped over 7.5 million units, essentially making it Capcom’s best selling game, ever.
Following the successful PC roll out on February 19th, all For Honor consoles players worldwide will be able to play on the dedicated server infrastructure starting tomorrow, March 6th. The introduction of dedicated servers to For Honor will improve matchmaking and overall online stability to offer a better and smoother experience to For Honor players for all PvP modes.
Dedicated servers are introduced as part of For Honor’s Fifth Season: Age of Wolves, which focuses on the core player experience and also introduces major Hero and fight updates, a 3-week special event, as well as new training modes later in the season.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
Ubisoft has announced that they will be introducing harder variants of the limited time event boss encounters; Anubis, Sobek, and Sekhmet. Each week in March will see the inclusion of each foe, with a difficulty setting to select from. Naturally, the harder variants will offer better rewards.
Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 finally releases this month following a slight delay, announced at the back end of 2017. As such, Ubisoft has unleashed a couple of gameplay videos for us to feast our eyes on while we wait patiently to touch down in Montana. Far Cry 5 is set to release on March 27th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Blizzard announced last week that Hero 27 was no other than Brigitte, daughter of Torbjorn. It’s fitting, then, that Brigitte will be getting a Torbjorn themed skin, as seen right here. We’re not sure when this skin will be added, but we’ll keep you in the loop as soon as we find out.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm
The Bonus episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, entitled ‘Farewell’, is available to download now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam). This episode welcomes back the original voice actors Ashly Burch & Hannah Telle who resume their roles as Chloe and Max in an emotional and nostalgic trip down memory lane. The physical, boxed version of Life is Strange: Before the Storm is also available now in the US and will be available in PAL territories on Friday 9th March.
Attack on Titan 2
Attack on Titan proved to be quite a successful game, so much so that work on a sequel almost immediately began thereafter. With the game set to release in just a few weeks time, KOEI TECMO are readying us up with a combat trailer and a custom character trailer.
It goes without saying that PUBG has taken the world by storm, but it hasn’t come without a fair share of issues. Thankfully, the devs have just tweeted to state that the recent problem with leaderboards and stats tracking (that was occurring since the last patch) are now fixed. Unfortunately, however, the team were unable to restore your missed stats.
theHunter: Call of the Wild
It’s been announced that the Medved-Taiga DLC (as well as an accompanying free patch) will be landing on both Xbox One and PS4 on March 6th. Get ready to face nature’s most challenging conditions during a rare hunting expedition to Medved-Taiga National Park.
Inspired by the harsh, frozen landscape of Siberia, you’ll traverse the unforgiving tundra, enter into the drunken forests and venture out on the frozen bay. Here, the weather can turn at an instant, leaving you swept in whirling snow and surrounded by cracking ice. Take a peek below.
