Reverse: 1999 has a big month planned with the latest version on a half-year anniversary happening in June

Players of Reverse: 1999 are going to have their hands full next month, as Version 1.6 drops on May 30th, and Bluepoch prepares to celebrate its RPGs’ six-month anniversary. New game modes have been announced, as well as a new character and a few free goodies, including 20 Unilogs in the Treasure in the Ancient City sign-in event. Unfortunately, Version 1.6 will also introduce Reverses’ first limited character in the shape of six-star Jiu Niangzi. The wording suggests if you miss them in this Till the Last Drop banner, you're going to have to wait about a year, which is one of the more unsavoury Gacha practices. In more positive summoning news, the Revelation of the Water limit…

PUBG Models teams up with SSC North America to add a lot more speed to the battlefield

Sometimes when you are in a firefight that just isn't going your way, the smart thing to do is just get out of there as quickly as possible. PUBG Mobile is assisting its players with just such a rapid egress thanks to their newest collaboration with renowned US hypercar manufacturer, SSC North America. Despite only being founded in 1999 as Shelby Supercars, after Jerold Shelby, SSC North America fast became a powerhouse in the hypercar world. The SSC Tuatara was officially clocked just short of the 300mph mark back in 2022, hitting 295, which should give you plenty of speed to loot that building and get away in style. Until July 9th you will be able to get your hands on two of SSC Noth Ame…

Blue Archive unveils latest Main story update as well as a 2.5-year celebratory event

Spring is here and is melting us all (at least here in the UK), but luckily Nexon is here to distract us thanks to the release of Blue Archives’ Main Story Vol 5. Like the Flower That Wishes to Bloom introduces an extremely powerful new recruit, and you can pick up some free Pyroxenes by logging in over the weekend. The Allied Hyakkiyako Academy’s world-renowned Cherry Blossom Festival has arrived, complete with hot springs and summer fireworks. Unfortunately, not everyone is feeling the fun, as the Hyakkaryouran Resolution Council is on the brink of collapse. Sensei steps in, as he often does, to try and resolves the issues before the club closes for good. Our newest recruit,…

Hearthstone heads towards a clash of the inventors as Dr Boom’s Incredible Inventions Mini-Set lands

Deep in the labs of Hearthstone, the incensed Dr Boom is hard at work perfecting his toymaking, spurred on by the taunts of Whizbang being named the world’s greatest inventor. Thinking along the lines that bigger is better, Boom hits upon this eureka moment, and releases unto our decks the Dr Boom’s Incredible Inventions Mini-Set. Something to really keep an eye on is the new keyword; Gigantify. When you play a card with this word, for example, the puny three-mana Toysnatching Geist with two attack and one health, you will get a Gigantic version of the card added to your hand. This version has a massive eight attack and eight health for eight mana, a massive upgrade to dominate…

PUBG Mobile becomes undisputed king of battle royales with new Mecha Fusion mode

PUBG Mobile becomes undisputed king of battle royales with new Mecha Fusion mode

In the past you could have made a lot of arguments for why any of the battle royales on mobile are the best in the genre, however, PUBG Mobile's latest update has just blown them all out of the water. That is because version 3.2 has released the Mecha Fusion mode, complete with giant freakin' robots. Mecha Fusion is available across the Erangel, Livik, and Miramar maps, and contains three mechs to pick from; Levitron, Strider, and Armamech. Levitron can switch between a speed form, and a magnetic one that allows them to throw characters, whereas the Strider has a boosted jump and is loaded with missiles. Combine them both, and you will get the Armamech, a four-seater equipped with dual wea…

Hero Wars flips on the easy mode as iconic gaming legend crosses over for a visit

The world of Hero Wars is full to the brim with all manner of heroes willing to sling fire, swing blades, or let loose arrows to keep the evil at bay, but what if that isn’t enough? Well, then you of course get a gun! Or, make that two, as Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft makes her way over in a truly bizarre collaboration. If you never heard of Lara Croft, well I don’t believe you. Ever since those first steps into the caves on PS1 where you are immediately ambushed by bats to the face, she has been one of the leading icons in gaming. Luckily for GDEV, she is taking a quick break from raiding Crystal Dynamics tombs to hop over into Hero Wars. Packing those signature dual pistols…

Amanda the Adventurer is set to traumatise a whole new audience later this year

If you were anywhere near Twitch or YouTube last year then you no doubt saw one of the hundreds of people playing Amanda the Adventurer, the twisted take on a children's show. If you didn’t, then luckily for you the game is coming to mobile later this year, for a whole new demographic to join in on the fun. The story follows Riley Park, a woman who recently inherited the house of their reclusive Aunt Kate. When exploring an attic that a hoarder would be proud of, she stumbles across a stack of VHS tapes. Having never watched The Ring, Riley pops in one of the tapes and gets her first look at the early 2000s children's cartoon, Amanda the Adventurer. Looking like a generic low-budget…

May brings some very powerful card to Marvel Snap in a Blink in Time

The multiverse is in peril again and it is up to you to team with Blink and the Exiles to save Marvel Snap in its May 2024 season. A Blink in Time brings with it two new locations, five powerful new heroes, and three beautiful new albums full of emotes and variants to collect. The part I'm sure we are all most interested in is the five new characters up for grabs, starting with Blink. She is a five-cost card with seven power, which is nice on its own, but it is her ability that makes her stand out. On reveal, you can swap the last card you played with a higher-cost card from your deck, a perfect way to upgrade your one-cost mook for a monster. Also coming into this series is Nocturne, who…

Eggy Party teams up with Little Parrot Bebe to update your wardrobe

In what I can only assume is an attempt to make players take better care of their little eggos, Egg Party is teaming up with the cutesy Little Parrot Bebe. As part of this, you can dress up in an adorable outfit to deter opponents from beating you up, but we all know it won’t work. Eggy Party is one of those hectic party games that involves being decimated by obstacles and bouncing off other players. You also get access to Ultimate Skills such as freezing competitors, throwing thunder at them, or the good old Eggy Bomb to just send people flying. This crossover with Little Parrot Bebe will last until May 30th, and if you've never heard of this character before, think along the lines…

Head to Planet Hugo on Roblox to celebrate the fashion giant's foray into Formula One

Hugo Boss, the clothing company best known for taking a standard polo shirt and charging over £100 for it, recently partnered with the unfortunately named Visa Cash App RB Formula One Team team to be their official apparel partner. To celebrate what I presume will be the most expensive hat of all time, Roblox is hosting a new experience for the duo. On May 3rd and 4th, the Hugo Garage Miami opened its doors, showing off a multi-layered creative space, modelled after the mechanic's workshops that any F1 fan will recognise. It was an exhibition of what these two powerhouses aim to accomplish now Hugo is the Official Apparel and Eyewear Partner for the team. If you don’t happen to…

Haegin makes dreams come true with the latest update to Play Together

I am very predisposed to judging a video game based on their development team; if they listen to their community and have open communication, then I am more likely to play their content. Haegin has just scored some points in this department, thanks to a wholesome update in Play Together. An elementary school teacher from Gyeonggi Province in South Korea emailed Haegin one day, informing them that they had an autistic student who often raved about Play Together in class. He had one wish, to see his favourite dinosaur in the game, and the developers got right to work making this a reality. Ms Quinn and Trey’s Story kicks off, fittingly, in the School at the Plaza. Head inside and you w…

Protea Prime lands in Warframe and brings the mastery of time to the palm of your hand

It has been teased for a while, but now it is finally time, terrible pun very much intended, to log into Warframe and start grinding for the blueprints as Protea Prime finally arrives. We have also been treated to a new cinema trailer, and it looks pretty impressive. For a quick recap on just who Protea is, she was hand-picked to personally serve and protect Parvos Granum, founder of Corpus. One of the main reasons for this is her mastery of time control, how can you be safer than with someone who wields a literal do-over button? Prime only adds to this powerful kit with increased energy, armour, an additional Poarity mod slot, and a rare Universal Aura slot. The trailer shows just what Pr…
