Battlefield 1 Multiplayer Female Soldiers Included In New DLC

Adnan Farooqui May 24, 2017

The next DLC for Battlefield 1 is called Name of the Tsar. The core addition that the downloadable content pack does to the game is the Russian Army. The DLC also brings four new maps as well as Russian soldiers, weapons, and vehicles. EA has also confirmed that Battlefield 1 multiplayer female soldiers are included in this DLC as well.

EA has confirmed that the Russian scout class is going to be represented by a female soldier hailing from the Women’s Battalion of Death. It has confirmed this while revealing no additional details about the Russian Army or the Scout Class. This is a long overdue addition as male soldiers are predominately featured in the series’ multiplayer modes.

The Russian Provisional Government formed the Women’s Battalion of Death in 1917. Female soldiers in these battalions were sent to the front lines to fight against Germany. It’s unclear how many women were a part of those battalions but estimates suggest that they numbered in the thousands.

The Name of the Tsar DLC for Battlefield 1 is going to be released this summer. A confirmed release date for the DLC has not yet been provided. EA is going to properly show off the DLC pack at its E3 2017 event next month.

With Valve‘s Steam You can gift games to your friends on Steam. While it’s an interesting feature, you may also not the feel the urgency to buy games repeatedly for your next of kin. You can save a lot of money by just sharing your games library with them. This is possible, all thanks to the ‘Family Sharing’ feature on Steam.

How To Stream On Twitch

Amlan Panigrahi May 24, 2017

Twitch is the most popular video streaming platform, catering to the needs of over a hundred million gamers worldwide. The platform basically showcases content related to video game walk-throughs, eSports and gaming convention broadcasts.

If you are aspiring to broadcast in-game content on Twitch then there are various applications available which you can use. Some of these include Nvidia GeForce Experience, Radeon ReLive and OBS Studio. This guide gives you a detailed walk-through of how to stream on Twitch using these applications.

With the release of the Pascal lineup of cards, GeForce Experience saw a major revamp in its UI and intuitive features. It is rather more smooth and easy to use. Make sure your application is updated before you begin broadcasting on Twitch. Below mentioned are the basic steps you need to adhere to.

You can even customize your Twitch overlay. You just need to use an image editor to create one. You can upload this custom overlay using the ‘Broadcast’ option located in the Settings. If you need help in designing custom overlays, then you can rely on various online tools that let you do so.

Using Radeon ReLive

Exclusively made for AMD users, Radeon ReLive was recently launched by the company, to provide better and reliable utilities to record/broadcast gameplay footages. It has replaced its previous counterpart Gaming Evolved and tackles GeForce Experience with its dynamic and beautiful UI.

You can witness lossless quality in recording/streaming with just 3-4% resource consumption with Radeon ReLive. However, the software doesn’t support products having an older version of GCN architecture (version 1.0 and 1.1). You can refer this list of supported GPUs.

Project Scorpio Xbox China Release Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui May 23, 2017

Microsoft conducted a hardware-focused event in Shanghai today where it unveiled the much-rumored new Surface Pro computer. The company also had an Xbox-related announcement to make at the event. It’s already selling the Xbox One in China, and the company has confirmed today that the Project Scorpio Xbox is also going to be released in China. The most powerful console that Microsoft has ever made will be released in China by the end of this year.

Microsoft is due to release the Project Scorpio Xbox globally by the fall so it’s likely going to be released around the same time in China. Microsoft has only confirmed that it’s going to be released in the People’s Republic, it hasn’t provided a confirmed release date just yet.

Microsoft is clearly wasting no time in bringing its most powerful console to one of the most lucrative gaming markets on the planet, particularly after the launch of the original Xbox One was delayed quite a bit in China.

The company hasn’t revealed much about the Project Scorpio Xbox itself so fans are still waiting on more details. Microsoft is going to properly unveil the Project Scorpio Xbox at the upcoming E3 2017 gaming convention in Los Angeles.

Tekken 7 PC System Requirements Revealed

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

Thinking about playing the upcoming Tekken 7 on your PC instead of consoles? If you are, then you might be interested to learn that based on the listing of the game on Steam’s page, the system requirements have been revealed. From what we can tell, they don’t look particularly demanding so unless you have a very, very old rig, you shouldn’t really run into any problems.

Starting with the minimum system requirements, the game will require users to run at least Windows 7 64-bit on their computers. If you’re running XP, we guess there’s a good chance you probably won’t be able to run the game with the rest of your hardware anyway. As for processor, gamers are required to have an Intel Core i3-4160 or better, 6GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or 750 Ti or better, 60GB of storage, and DirectX 11.

For those who want better graphics or frame rates, then the recommended specs might be worth checking out. For starters the processor required will be an Intel Core i5-4690 or better, 8GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or better for a GPU, and the rest of the specs are pretty much the same.

Tekken 7 will be released on the 2nd of June for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Gamers can look forward to the return of several classic characters and more fleshed out story mode.

Sony’s PSN Hits 70 Million Monthly Active Users

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

Companies such as Sony and Microsoft have their own online gaming networks in which PlayStation and Xbox gamers can play multiplayer games (not together). In Sony’s case, it is the PlayStation Network (PSN) which seems to be growing because according to Sony’s latest figures (via VG247), PSN has hit 70 million monthly active users.

This is actually rather impressive especially when you think about the fact that this means at least 70 million players from all around the world are logged into Sony’s PSN and are playing games and chatting with each other on a monthly basis. To give you guys some context, Sony’s PSN is now boasting a higher monthly active user count compared to Microsoft’s Xbox Live.

Earlier this year in January, it was revealed that Xbox Live was playing host to 55 million monthly active users. We’re sure that the number has probably increased since then, although whether or not it has reached PSN levels or even higher remains to be seen, but until we see the official figures, Sony’s PSN is in the lead.

In addition to these figures, it seems that Sony is boasting how its PlayStation Plus service has managed to hit 26.4 million subscribers, up by over 6 million users from the year before.

Blizzard Announces New Overwatch Minor League For Amateurs

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

We know that Blizzard has some pretty grand plans for Overwatch, their latest IP, in the eSports scene. So much so that Blizzard had previously created their own professional league aimed at pro gamers who want to get into the scene. However what about amateurs? Is Blizzard going to ignore that demographic?

For those who play Overwatch casually, you can rest assured that Blizzard isn’t ignoring you. In fact the company has recently announced a new minor league that is aimed at amateurs, or aspiring professionals. Dubbed Overwatch Contenders, this will allow gamers to prove themselves if they have what it takes to play with the pros.

According to the announcement, “While preparations for the Overwatch League are busily underway, we know that the future stars of the league are out there, training hard and looking to make their mark. That’s why we’re creating opportunities now for players across the competitive spectrum to prove themselves in glorious combat, from the solo-queue superstars to the established tournament veterans. Blizzard is excited to announce Overwatch Contenders—the development league for aspiring Overwatch League professionals, kicking off this summer in North America and Europe.”

There will of course be a prize pool to help sweeten this deal. For gamers who are interested, you can sign up for Season Zero via Blizzard’s website where it is expected to kick off on the 3rd of June.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Delayed To 2018

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

Last year the folks at Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 which is the long-awaited sequel to the original Red Dead Redemption from 2010, so safe to say that it has been a long time coming. The game was originally announced for the fall of 2017, but Rockstar has since announced that it has been delayed to the spring of 2018 instead.

According to Rockstar, “Red Dead Redemption 2 is now set to launch Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.”

They add, “We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready.” We suppose this is disappointing news but we reckon most gamers would much rather have the game delayed rather than Rockstar release a game that isn’t quite up to scratch.

No specific dates have been mentioned so we’ll just have to keep an eye out for it. There was also no mention of it being available for the PC or the Nintendo Switch so we guess those options are off the cards.
