Diablo 3 Patch 2.6.9 PTR Launch Delayed To Next Week

Published

on

Blizzard is issuing a new update to Diablo 3 in the public test realm (PTR) to put the next update through its paces before it becomes widely available. The 2.6.9 patch was originally going to begin its testing run on Thursday, May 21, but according to an update on the Blizzard forums, the patch has actually been delayed to next week to allow for “additional QA time” to fix bugs and other issues. It’s now scheduled to arrive the week of May 24, slightly past its initially-scheduled launch.

Those who participate in the test next week will be able to check out some new gear for Demon Hunter and Necromancer, with some special items to help speed you on your way. It should help to make the wait for Diablo 4 a little easier, especially as we still don’t know when the game is actually going to release.

Microsoft has rolled out a new update for Xbox One. The May 2020 update is aimed at improving the overall UI experience, specifically in regards to simplifying the Guide and making it easier to navigate.

“The new Guide is designed to be cleaner and easier to read,” Xbox Experience principal program manager lead Jonathan Hildebrandt wrote in a blog post. “We’ve reduced the total number of tabs by combining related experiences and introduced a new default, left-to-right tab order, making it simpler to move around. App and system notifications are now found with the rest of your Alerts, right when you open the Guide.”

Here’s a quick rundown of all the changes:

Published

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has captured the hearts of scores of players since it first launched back in March, and it’s become something of a phenomenon. If you’re like us, you’re probably still playing almost every day (perhaps even for multiple hours), checking your turnip prices, fine-tuning your town layout, breeding flowers, and more Animal Crossing goodness.

But even if you love the game like we do, you probably have a few nitpicks by now. If you’ve crafted tons of fish bait or gotten really into terraforming, there might be a few features you’d like to see–just those little quality-of-life updates that tweak the minor issues that crop up when you’ve played a game for 200 or more hours. And because New Horizons is already getting ongoing support and new content updates, we can really dare to dream.

We put our heads together to come up with nine quality-of-life updates we’d love to see come to New Horizons. Let us know in the comments what other features you want to see come to the adorable life/gardening/friendship sim! And Nintendo, if you’re reading: We say all this with love.

Riot is holding a set of Valorant tournaments to celebrate its June 2 launch. The tournaments, which will be streamed and hosted by Twitch Rivals, will feature a $200,000 prize pool with creators and teams from North America, Brazil, Europe, Korea, Japan, and other parts of Latin America participating.

Few details have been announced yet, but Twitch Rival tournaments usually feature a combination of professional players and streamers. Specific tournament times during the launch weekend have also not been announced.

Valorant left beta on Thursday, becoming unavailable to players until the free-to-play shooter fully launches on June 2. Riot plans to reset player accounts and patch in fixes and new content during the down period. The studio will also be adding new servers–located in Atlanta, Dallas, London, Madrid, and Warsaw–to help lower Valorant’s latency so that the player experience is as smooth as possible.
