Epic Games has announced that they will be hitting the eSports scene in a HUGE way. The company has announced that they will provide $100,000,000 (yes that’s ONE HUNDRED MILLION dollars) for Fortnite eSports. Check out the quote below:
Grab your gear, drop in and start training. Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale we’ve watched the passion for community competition grow and can’t wait to empower you to battle with the best.
In the 2018 – 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions. We’re getting behind competitive play in a big way, but our approach will be different – we plan to be more inclusive, and focused on the joy of playing and watching the game.
Stay tuned for more details about competitive structures and eligible platforms in the weeks ahead!
The makers behind the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 have stated that they have no plans to bring the upcoming title to the Nintendo Switch. The full reveal for Black Ops 4 was showcased yesterday but has bene confirmed that the game will indeed skip Nintendo’s hybrid console. Whether you like the franchise or not, you want Call of Duty on your system. It’s a multi-million selling series and this is a HUGE, missed opportunity.
The game length has been revealed for the upcoming PS4 exclusive Detroit Become Human. The highly anticipated game (yes I consider it VERY highly anticipated…. LOVED the demo) will clock in around 8-10 hours in length. There will however be plenty of different paths to take and if you want to nab the coveted platinum trophy, it may take up to 25 hours. Detroit Become Human is set to release on PS4 on May 25th and players can download the demo now.
We are only 3 days away from the official unveiling for Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and apparently Gamestop is showcasing that the popular title is indeed headed to the Nintendo Switch. If you look at the image above (which is from Twitter), a Gamestop store clearly has display boxes for Call of Duty for the Nintendo Switch. While we are just days away from the big Call of Duty event, this could be a BIG win for the Nintendo Switch. Whether you like the franchise or not, you want Call of Duty on your system.
This generations winner, PS4, has now sold over 79 million units. This news described hardware units sold through March 2018. The Sony PS4 has a garage of exclusive games headed to the system this year and Sony has stated that they fully expect to shift another 16 million units this fiscal year. Heavy hitters such as Detroit Become Human, Spiderman, God of War, The Last of Us 2 and more all will arrive and we cannot wait.
Huge congrats to Sony and their Playstation 4 system.
Fornite has announced the winners for its #boogiedown contest. The video, which can be seen above, showcases the top 5 winners as well as some “honorable mentions”. This was definitely a unique contest and I will be eager to see the dance come to the game.
One of the most exciting new IP’s for the PS4 is getting a demo tomorrow!! Detroit Become Human will be receiving a full demo that will allow players to play the first mission of the game. I was BLOWN AWAY by the recent footage of the title and have high hopes for this one. When the game first was shown, I thought it looked interesting but my hype for this one has jumped quite a bit. I will be sure to post my thoughts on the demo on my Twitter account, so make sure you follow me there.
Awesome news. Here’s hoping Detroit Become Human plays as good as it looks. The game will release on May 25, 2018.
