Welcome Apex Legends, another (free-to-play) take on battle royale

It's really hard these days to keep a secret.

The result is Apex Legends, a new free-to-play entry in the battle royale genre that has dropped on us almost without notice.

Red Dead Online gets battle royale in new update

Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of Stuff’s top games of 2018. But the beautiful part of gaming is that it isn’t over.

Here’s why South Africans can’t access all the BO4 Blackout modes

When buying a video game, you’d expect to get all the game content all the time, right? Well… maybe not. The gaming industry has shifted from a complete (and singular) game model to more online and multiplayer content — games as a service. Even then, you’d expect that you get to keep what you pay for. That’s… not strictly true.  New Call of Duty title Black Ops 4 seem...[Read More]

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Stop campaigning and battle royale

This year, Activision made the bold move of removing the campaign mode from their new Call of Duty instalment. And while opting for online gaming and zombies sounded controversial at release, we actually think they are onto something here. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the most recent addition to the first-person-shooter series, made by Treyarch — the guys best known for 2008’s World at War a...[Read More]

All your Fortnitemares are about to come true

‘Tis the most creepy time of the year, and in the spirit of Halloween, Fortnite has decided to roll out an event mode called ‘Fortnitemares’. And this time, you won’t be fighting each other. Life was going very well on the island. The only thing you had to worry about was other players actively looking for people to kill… Then, when the bells tolled on 24 October, the map became littered with comp...[Read More]

Fortnite Season 6 – What’s happening on the island this time around

Colourfully animated battle royale sensation Fortnite has ended its fifth season — which means the game is due for a whole range of new updates. Horrifying new updates to be exact. What can we expect from the (now-live) Season 6? Obviously a Halloween-themed season that’s packed with invisibility, new skins, new locations and pets. Because October is literally around the corner and 31 Octobe...[Read More]

Stay alive, and if something moves, shoot it: one year of phenomenal success for Fortnite

The online video game Fortnite Battle Royale was launched just a year ago in September 2017. Since then the game had amassed 125 million active players by June and made US$1.2 billion for the developer, Epic Games. It has also been linked to 200 divorces and a case of aggravated harassment where a 45-year-old man threatened to kill an 11-year-old boy after losing to him in the game. Love it or hat...[Read More]

Go eyes-on with the Call of Duty: Black Ops IV Blackout trailer ahead of next week’s beta

It’s getting to be about that time again, where we throw everything out of the windows in favour of levelling up with the rest of the Call of Duty fans. Black Ops IV is set to deliver on its multiplayer, as usual, but it is the new Blackout battle royale mode that really has our attention this year. There’s a beta test of the all-new mode kicking off, hard, next week with PlayStation g...[Read More]

Remember how everyone is on the battle royale mode bus, including Activision? The upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will include a battle royale mode, Call of Duty style, called Blackout.
