There’s a new Puppet Master Andy skin and set out for PUBG Mobile. This is part of the arcade characters that have been introduced in the game. The character can be obtained from the characters screen in the game. Besides this there are different cosmetic items that are available for the characters. These are found in the chest on the shop section of the game.

Besides the Puppet Master skin there’s a new Pinocchio Set available as well. This has been added as part of a new crate in the game called EMP. Opening this once costs 60UC and 540 UC for 10 times. Like most other crates this will have less chances for rarer items to drop.

PUBG Mobile also introduced the Mother Clucker set recently. This new set is available as part of an event which also features other sets. This includes a new headgear and costume that makes the player look like a chicken. players can access this in the events section and this is like a lucky draw with the rarer items being more difficult to get. The cost to play this once is 60UC.

PUBG Mobile recently introduced another event called 1-UC Bounty Raid. This new event introduces the chance to win some attractive skins by wagering a minimum of 1UC. There are multiple skins and cosmetic items available in 1-UC Bounty Raid. Each of these items have a threshold, and people can wager more UC if they want. Hence spending more UC means there’s a bigger chance of winning that skin in 1-UC Bounty Raid. Each time the threshold of an item completes one person who wagered has the chance to win.

PS5 price and pre-order latest as new PlayStation 5 console rival is revealed

Published

By

More news regarding the final PS5 price is expected in the coming weeks, along with the first details on when pre-order will be available.

Sony has been slow to release new information but that hasn’t stopped the company being backed to top its rivals Microsoft.

Some analysts believe that the PS5 can beat the likes of the Xbox Series X, based on how well established the PlayStation brand is around the world.

The new report from DFC intelligence explains: “Microsoft is trying its best with Xbox Series X, but the past few months have revealed they are just too far behind Sony.

“Consumer brand preference is strongly towards PlayStation. As a piece of hardware there is nothing Xbox Series X is doing to change that perception.

“Sony is also a global powerhouse in video games. Microsoft is only strong in English speaking markets.

“The Xbox has no presence in Japan and is weak in most of Europe. Sony’s strength in global consumer electronics distribution has been too much for Microsoft to overcome, even after 20 years of concerted effort.”

So with reports like that backing Sony, what can Microsoft do to try and even the next-gen odds?

A new report out this week suggests that the tech giant could surprise everyone by announcing a second next-gen in the coming weeks.

Those who have been following the slow crawl toward the next-gen release cycle may have heard of something called Project Lockhart.

Rumours of a less powerful Xbox console launching the same year as the Xbox Series X have been around for some time.

And Microsoft have spoken about launching only one console and focusing entirely on that project.

But a new report out this week suggests that an Xbox Series X – AKA Project Lockhart – could be real and in production.

A white Xbox Series S controller has been found listed on a resale site, and The Verge reports that it is a genuine Microsoft product.

This would line up with earlier reports that Microsoft is planning to announce some major news during August 2020.

The Xbox Series S could be a big part of that new reveal and could provide the company with a way to undercut the PS5 price.

So even if the PS5 – or digital-only version – costs less than the Xbox Series X, it seems unlikely it will be able to beat the Xbox Series S.

The downside is that the Series S will offer a lot less power, including 7.5GB of RAM, and around 4 teraflops of GPU performance, paired with the same CPU as the Xbox Series X.

Here are some of the stats Microsoft has revealed so far about the Xbox Series X, telling fans in 2020:

“Xbox Series X, the most powerful gaming console, empowers developers to deliver on their creative visions and dreams.

“It packs an unprecedented 12 teraflops of GPU power and enables new technologies and features like hardware-accelerated Direct X raytracing, variable rate shading, framerates up to 120 fps, and Quick Resume for multiple games, all of which cumulatively will deliver a new level of fidelity, immediacy, precision and accuracy never before seen in console gaming.

“Powered by our next generation, custom-designed processor including an 8 core Zen 2 CPU, delivering more than 4x the processing power of an Xbox One, and a 12 TFLOP RDNA 2 GPU, more than 8x the performance of the original Xbox One, Xbox Series X will enable a new level of visual fidelity and immersion.

“Pair that with the highest bandwidth GDDR6 memory of any next generation console, and a custom, next generation solid state drive (SSD), Xbox Series X will provide developers the power to push their creative visions to the limit.

“With next generation innovations including DirectX hardware-accelerated raytracing, variable refresh rate and ultra-low latency input, Xbox Series X sets the stage for a new level of fidelity, precision and accuracy never before seen in console gaming.”

And if we’re finally finding out about Microsoft’s latest next-gen console, could that mean a price reveal from all the companies is on its way?

Regardless of what new device you’re planning to buy, it seems everyone is desperate to find out how much everything is going to cost.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare update: Big COD Warzone patch news for PS4 and Xbox One

Published

on

By

Things could run a little differently this week when it comes to the usual weekly Call of Duty Modern Warfare update. Recently, Activision has been sharing news regarding Modern Warfare and COD Warzone on a Monday, followed by a new patch being deployed on a Tuesday. But this week, there are rumours that the new Call of Duty game will be revealed, or at least teased officially, by Activision.

Leading Call of Duty media outlets have been sharing pictures of mysterious wooden crates being sent to them, hinting that something big is being announced on Monday.

The instructions that come with the crates say, “Do not open this crate until August 10, 2020 – 12pm EDT.”

And a new trailer being launched at around 5pm BST sounds like a great way to start building the hype around the new game.

The Wooden Crate also came with instructions on how to open the box at the right time using a code.

Hints have also been popping up in Call of Duty Warzone this week that seem tied to a new reveal.

This includes the screen flickering and the phrase “Know Your History.” showing briefly. This has been recorded on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

This all suggests that something big is happening very soon and that could disrupt when the next Modern Warfare update arrives.

We would still expect some kind of patch this week, but it may not arrive in the usual Tuesday time frame.

What makes this year’s Call of Duty announcement so different is that it will reportedly affect Call of Duty Warzone in a big way.

It’s expected that Warzone will continue to be supported with new content, but this time sourced from COD 2020.

This could mean a new map being launched soon after Season 5 ends and the new Call of Duty is released.

And while Season 5 is expected to last a few months, fans will be interested to find out what is being planned next.

Back to this week, and we would expect a new Call of Duty update to be released to changes the current playlists.

This includes the free weekend playlist, which gives all Warzone players access to Modern Warfare.

This is scheduled to end on August 12 at 10AM PT (6pm BST) so that might be when we see the new Warzone patch go live.

A message from Activision explains: “Get more Modern Warfare, free starting on August 7 at 10AM PT until August 12 at 10AM PT.

“This action-packed free access period gives free-to-play Warzone™ users entrance to new Multiplayer content that debuted in Season Five including two new maps – Suldal Harbor and Petrov Oil Rig.

“Bring your skills to the Multiplayer moshpit and gear up for a battle where you’ll likely encounter more opposition than you do in a standard Battle Royale match.

“The moshpit will offer deathmatch modes like Team Deathmatch, a race to rack up 75 kills and Kill Confirmed, a 65-kill win condition where kills are only counted when they are confirmed by picking up enemy dog tags.

“Plus, there will be some objective modes: Domination, points are earned by holding objectives, first to 200 wins, and Hardpoint, points are earned by holding a single rotating objective, first to 250 wins.”

Microsoft is rumored to be unveiling its second, cheaper next-gen Xbox console this month, and it looks like it will definitely be called Xbox Series S. The Verge has obtained photos of Microsoft’s new next-gen Xbox controller in white, complete with packaging that mentions the Xbox Series S. Instagram user Zak was able to purchase the controller today, and we’ve confirmed it’s genuine.

The new controller was sold on a resale site today, and the side of the packaging notes that the controller works with both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. Microsoft has not officially unveiled an Xbox Series S yet, nor has the company even confirmed a white Xbox Series X controller.

A mysterious white Xbox Series X controller also appeared online last month, complete with the new D-pad, textured triggers, and new share button. This new leak matches the previous controller leak, and retail packaging suggests that these could be appearing in stores soon.

The Xbox Series S will likely be Microsoft’s second cheaper next-gen Xbox, that’s been codenamed Lockhart. A Microsoft document, leaked back in June, shed some further light on the company’s plans for two next-gen consoles. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X devkit, codenamed “Dante,” allows game developers to enable a special Lockhart mode that has a profile of the performance that Microsoft wants to hit with this second console.

The Lockhart console is expected to include 7.5GB of usable RAM, around 4 teraflops of GPU performance, and ship with the same CPU found on the Xbox Series X. Microsoft is rumored to be unveiling the Xbox Series S some time in August, and it will likely play a big part of the company’s Xbox All Access subscription plans that bundle an Xbox console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass) for a monthly fee.

We’ve reached out to Microsoft to comment on the next-gen Xbox controller leak, and we’ll update you accordingly.
