PUBG Updates: Event Modes Coming, Xbox Performance Improved

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting updates for its different platforms in the form of limited-time event modes, as well as improved performance on Xbox One.

Following in the footsteps of Fortnite, Event Mode is “a periodically changing preset Custom Game” where the devs will be “trying new things and experimenting with different game parameters” with the new content “available in the game only for a limited time,” according to the announcement.

The first limited time mode is going to be pretty basic, and will pit teams of eight players against each other, with the rifle drop rate doubled. If you think it doesn’t sound all that different from the usual fare, you’d be right, but bigger things are planned for future modes.

Janina Reacts to Her Battlefront 2 “Iden” for the First Time – IGN Expert Mode

As it turns out, getting to watch an actor see a video game character that’s modeled after their likeness, mimicking the micro-expressions in their face, and speaking the lines they recorded, for the first time, is pretty incredible.

Fortnite Mobile Makes $1 Million in First Three Days

Fortnite iOS launched last week and players spent $1 million on in-app purchases within the first 72 hours.

According to data from Sensor Tower, the game has raked in over $1.5 million worldwide so far, which is impressive, considering the release has been limited to invite-only on iOS.

Sensor Tower reports that, based on cosmetic in-app purchases alone, Fortnite has grossed around a third of the revenue that Pokemon Go earned in its first four days on iOS. Niantic managed to make $4.9 million in four days, so Fortnite’s numbers really aren’t too shabby.

The game also topped the iOS charts in 47 countries less than 24 hours after launch, and ranked within the top 10 in 58 countries. Fortnite will be coming to Android eventually, but for now, it’s invite-only on iOS.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Western Release Date Announced

Yakuza Kiwami 2, released in Japan last December, is coming to the west in a special edition steelbook.

The steelbook is only available for preorders and the first run of the game, and features art on the inside cover of “Kiryu and his fierce rival, the Dragon of Kansai, Ryuji Goda.”

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of Yakuza 2, remastered in the Dragon Engine used to create Yakuza 6. All the in-game and cut-scene dialog has been re-recorded, with an emphasis on remaining “as true to the original as possible.”

The localization has also been reworked, so it’s “the most faithful representation of the original Japanese,” according to Sega.

If you’ve forgotten, or aren’t familiar with the story, you can check out a 10-part web comic on the Yakuza Experience website to get up to speed.
