A collective of storytellers eager to push the frontlines of interactive entertainment by making unique, entertaining and thoughtful experiences that engage the world, Cloud Chamber will build its team at two locations: 2K’s San Francisco Bay Area headquarters in Novato, Calif., as well as in Montréal, Québec, which marks the first-ever Canadian office for a 2K studio. In addition, 2K announced that Cloud Chamber has started to work on the next iteration of the globally acclaimed BioShock franchise, which will be in development for the next several years.

PUBG Mobile Sniper Guide – Kar98, M24 and AWM

Everyone wants to use sniper rifles in PUBG Mobile, but not everyone can because it can be a little tricky to figure out how to go about it. Hopefully, this guide will tell you all you need to know about the best snipers and their attachments.

Kar98

Let’s start with the Kar98. Not only is this the most common sniper rifle in the game, it also has the highest damage. It’s base damage it 79, and if you’re able to get a headshot, you can get a one-shot kill even on a level 2 helmet.

Sight and Muzzle – In the way of attachments, it only supports a sight, muzzle and stock. For the sight, our best option is either the 6x or the 8x, and for the muzzle, we recommend going with the suppressor, so you can take the sneaky approach without being spotted by the enemy.

Stock –For the stock you have two options, either a cheekpad or bullet loops. The choice depends on how your personal preference. If you’re using an 8x scope and taking long-range shots, then the cheekpad is the way to go. Otherwise go with the bullet loops as they reduce the reload time and you can take more shots, giving you a greater chance to get a kill even if you miss some shots.

As the Kar98 is a very common weapon, it’s pretty useful to know how to use it effectively.

M24

The M24 is a little less hard-hitting than the Kar98, with its base damage being 75. So if you’re looking for a pure damage weapon, the Kar98 is a better choice. It supports more attachments than the Kar98, namely a sight, muzzle, magazine and stock.

Sight and Muzzle – Again, for the sight, we recommend going with a 6x or an 8x scope, along with a suppressor on the muzzle.

Magazine – For the magazine, you can choose between the Extended Mag or the Quickdraw Mag. We suggest the Extended Mag as it will let you take more shots before you need to reload, which means you can put some pressure on your enemies and have a higher chance of getting a kill.

Stock –For the stock you only have a cheekpad here, so use that and you’ll be able to have a steadier aim.

AWM

Finally, we have the deadliest sniper in PUBG Mobile, the AWM. In the right hands, it can wreak havoc on your enemies. It has the highest base damage of 105 and can easily take down an enemy with a Level 3 Helmet in a single headshot. But it’s pretty rare too, as it’s only available through the air drops.

Another issue is that the AWM uses Magnum rounds instead of regular 7.62mm ones, which are again, only found in air drops. For the attachments it has the same options as the M24: sight, muzzle, magazine and stock.

Sight and Muzzle – Like in previous two cases, the best option for the sight is a 6x or an 8x scope, and for the muzzle you can’t go wrong with the suppressor.

Magazine – For the magazine, the best choice is the Quickdraw Extended Mag as it gives you the benefits of both, but if you can’t find it, the Extended Mag is your best bet, because there’s a higher chance of killing as you can fire more rounds before you have to reload.

Stock – For the stock you only have the cheekpad, so we’ll go with that.

Using the Sniper Rifle

Now that you know which sniper rifles are there in the game, let’s talk about how to use them.

As you’re taking long-range shots with the sniper, you need to remember that there will be bullet drop (the bullet will drop in height the farther it goes) and sniper rounds are slower. With those two things in mind, you’ll need to adjust your aim accordingly. If you hold your aim, you’ll be able to tell the bullet’s path and have a good idea of the amount of bullet drop.

Another thing, the best way to use a sniper is by crouching or going prone. This makes your aim more stable and in turn, it becomes easier to line up a shot.

One more thing, during the last stage of the round, it’s better to switch to a 6x if you started out with an 8x. Mainly because the zone will be smaller and you don’t need such a long-range, and if the enemies are closer, you can keep it at 3x. Similarly, if you have an 8x scope, you can keep it at 4x for closer ranged fights.

Now you should have enough information about how to go on using sniper rifles in PUBG Mobile. Keep checking back for more guides and tips!

Review: Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset

Logitech has been a well-known brand in the PC market for a long time, but it’s only recently that they decided to double down on the gaming segment with their G series. Now we have an entire range of keyboards, mice and headsets designed specifically with gamers in mind, and today we’re checking out something that’s made for the professionals, the Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset. Let’s check out how Pro it really is, shall we?

From the first look itself, it’s clear that this isn’t the kind of headset we’ve seen from Logitech before. Instead of different colours, we have a monochromatic look, with a glossy Logitech logo in the middle of a silver circle on each ear cup. The entire headset has a premium, high-grade metal feel to it, with luxurious leather padding on the headband. Without going for any RGB frills, it keeps things simple and classy, setting itself apart from the crowd.

From connectivity to comfort, the amount of options that the Logitech G Pro X offers is impressively mind-boggingly. No matter what kind of setup you have or what your preferences are, chances are it will work for you without any hassles. You can connect it to your console with the 3.5mm pin, or use the included splitter to connect it to your PC. There’s a USB adapter too, if you want to use that. Mind though, you will need the USB adapter to leverage the software level customizations. The mic is completely detachable, and get this, is made by Blue, the company renowned for making mics. Plus, the headset comes not with one, but two sets of ear cups. If you find don’t find the leather one comfortable, you can pick the foam one, or vice versa. It’s like an all-inclusive package that takes care of everyone and everything.

The headset is pretty lightweight, and both sets of ear cups are equally comfortable, it just comes to personal preference about which one suits you more. However, adjusting the headset does take a bit of work and it can feel a little tight in the beginning. It’s a matter of trying it again and again to find the right fit.

It doesn’t matter what kind of games you play, the Logitech G Pro X delivers a solid audio experience. The gunshots boom with the bass, enemy footsteps are crisp and clear, and the direction from which your enemies are firing at you is discernible as well. All these qualities really stand as a testament to the headset’s strengths as it is primarily aimed at tournament professionals. It can also prove equally advantageous to streamers whose main focus is eSports titles, whether it’s PUBG, CS:GO or DOTA, or any other game for that matter.

It’s also where the G Pro X’s mic quality comes into the picture. On its own, the mic sounds okay, but as soon as you enable the Blue Voice functionality, everything changes. The audio quality becomes much better and though you won’t find yourself turning into a singer overnight, you’ll be able to communicate much more clearly and efficiently in your games.

At a price point of INR 13,270, The Logitech G Pro X headset may seem expensive at first, but it comes with a surprising range of options that some of its competitors fail to offer in the same price bracket. Not only is it completely tournament ready, but it can also provide an all-in-one audio solution to streamers who are on a tight budget and can’t afford to buy a dedicated mic and sound setup. If you can spare the money and are on the lookout for a feature-rich headset, this is not a bad deal at all.

PUBG VS Free Fire – Which One is For You?

PUBG Mobile and Free Fire are two of the most popular games on smartphones right now, and if you’re planning to get into either of them, trying to figure out which one suits you the most might not be very easy to do. That’s why we’ve prepared this guide comparing the two games to help you out. Let’s see what both games have to offer, shall we?

Characters

Free Fire has a lot of characters. You start off with two free characters and can unlock more as you play. Most of the characters can be unlocked by normally progressing through the game. You can even buy them, should you choose, and some can even be obtained via login bonus. But some characters are locked behind a paywall in that you need to buy them with diamonds, which in turn are purchased with real-world currency.

Additionally, each character in Free Fire has their unique skill or ability. And you can unlock more by leveling up the character. Depending on your playstyle, you can level up the corresponding skills and double down on it.

On the other hand, PUBG Mobile is quite simple. The battle royale mode has no character system. Everyone has the same character, though you can change the appearance. Everyone starts out the same and there are no skills to unlock. There are characters in the Evo mode, but they can’t be used in the Battle Royale.

The Battle Royale Mode

PUBG has made battle royale the most popular game mode in India and a lot of other countries. In PUBG Mobile’s Battle Royale mode, 100 players drop on a map and the aim is to be the last man or the last squad standing. It’s a simple concept: escape from the Blue Zone, kill your enemies, stay away from the red areas and survive till the end.

In Free Fire, there are only 50 players in a match, and the map is much smaller. So not only do the matches are shorter, you can get into combat much faster because of the smaller map.

Both games have a pretty good variety of weapons, skins and attachments. So which one should you go for?

Even people who are not really into gaming are somewhat familiar with PUBG Mobile. So if you’re just looking to dabble into games with your friends, PUBG Mobile is your best bet as you can easily find people to play with and chances are some of your friends are already playing it. Additionally, PUBG Mobile has a much bigger esports scene right now, so you can even take part in tournaments should you want to.

On the other hand, Free Fire has a lot of unique things to add to the battle royale formula, like characters. The matches are shorter and fast-paced, unlike PUBG where one game can take a while. With the different skills and weapons, you can experiment a lot more in Free Fire, especially if you like trying out different playstyles.

In the end, irrespective of which game you pick, you can always take part in the tournaments for it on GamingMonk.

Fantasy Battle Royale ‘Spellbreak’ Coming To PS4 in 2020

I’m incredibly excited to announce today that Spellbreak will be coming to PS4! And we’re pleased to confirm that we’re working on a beta that will be available to PS4 players in early 2020.

Spellbreak is a fantasy battle royale where you play as a battlemage, casting huge spells, combining primal elements, and literally flying through the world (or Teleporting, Shadowstepping, or a myriad of other movement abilities.). Guns and grenades can only take you so far and we wanted to explore something different, something that harkens back to the fantasy books that we grew up reading.

We took our inspiration from old-school shooters with skill shots and crazy mobility and we added in some modern twists to make a combat system that truly embodies fantasy action spellcasting. Add to that our spin on battle royale with elements of rogue-like games and RPGs, along with a gorgeous art style, and you have something we feel is totally unique.

Our team has been hard at work bringing the ravaged world of Spellbreak to life with sublime, painterly, cel-shaded visuals inspired by traditional animation and anime. You’ll be transported to the Hollow Lands, and while you’ll want to explore every nook and cranny, don’t get too complacent; there are enemy mages around every corner trying to put an end to your journey. Go on quests, discover ongoing content, and experience the deep backstory and universe we have created around the game.

Master Your Magic

Choose your gauntlets wisely. In Spellbreak, you can dual-wield magical gauntlets that each have two different abilities, giving you four active combat options and a myriad of combination possibilities. Runes provide powerful movement and support abilities to round out your magic arsenal. The balance of fast movement and numerous skillshot abilities creates a deep, skill-based combat system for players to master.

Create Elemental Spell Combinations

Use wind to launch yourself skyward or create a tornado that will pull your enemies in. Then light the tornado on fire or electrify it with lightning to ensure maximum damage. Grab a frost gauntlet to lay a path of ice that you and your teammates can skate down at super-speed or melt it with a fireball. There are dozens of spell combinations in Spellbreak and you will need to master all of them if you want to outlast your enemies.

Choose Your Class, Craft Your Build

In addition to the over-the-top combat, we wanted to bring the joy of RPGs and character customization to Spellbreak. Not only can you dual-wield gauntlets, but you can choose a class that unlocks various skills, as well as equip a vast array of powers to further customize your playstyle. Play your own way or team up with friends to synergize your builds (or accidentally set a teammate on fire. Whoops.)

Become the Ultimate Battlemage

To win in Spellbreak, it takes quick combat skill, clever magical tactics, smart strategic choices, and a little bit of luck. We know that Spellbreak will be at home on PS4 and we can’t wait to share it with all of you.

New VR Title ‘Superliminal’ Coming To PS4 in 2020

Hello everyone! We are Pillow Castle, a six-person indie studio based in Seattle, WA, USA. After six years of development, we’re excited to say that Superliminal is finally coming to PlayStation 4 in April 2020! In this first-person puzzler, players solve optical illusion puzzles using their perspective as they attempt to escape a dream therapy program gone wrong.

Everyone has tried to play with perspective using their imagination. Maybe you’ve pretended to pinch and pick up the Eiffel Tower, the sun, or maybe just a friend that’s standing far away. And we thought, well what if you could do that in a game? What if you could pick up the Eiffel Tower from far away and actually put it on a table?

And that’s how Superliminal (or originally a prototype called “Museum of Simulation Technology”) was born. We wanted to create a surreal, dream-like experience that would keep players on their feet and thinking outside the box.

In order to do that, we have other optical illusion related mechanics in the game as well. One of them is called trompe-l’oeil, which you probably know as chalk drawings on the ground that look 3D from a certain perspective. In our game, from the correct angle, 2D images can sometimes become real 3D objects.

Part of our belief in making this game is that there are so many interesting and unexplored video game mechanics out there. Video games can be about anything, and hopefully game developers have barely scratched the surface. We’re looking forward to see what kind of video games come out in the future!

Predator: Hunting Grounds Coming To PC and PS4 in April 2020

Are you ready to enter the hunting grounds on April 24, 2020? We are so excited to bring the Predator universe to both your PlayStation 4 system and PC next spring. We have been eagerly awaiting this State of Play announcement because there has been so much we couldn’t wait to share with the community. And now we get to show you a ton! If you haven’t seen the latest State of Play, be sure to check it out to see our new trailer that focuses on the Predator.

One of the secrets we have been keeping since announcing Predator: Hunting Grounds has been the inclusion of the female Predator.

When we first came up with what this game would be, I knew we had to create a world where this ultimate female warrior would exist too. We had fun imagining her back-story which helped us create a fierce warrior that any gamer will have fun playing. She is agile, fast, and relentless. She is a huntress without fear and she thrives in the hunt. In the trailer we see her with a weapon that IllFonic created, the Yautja Bow.

This is no ordinary bow, it deals massive damage to its prey and will pin the enemy to walls and other structures at death. She has access to the entire Predator arsenal as well.

Speaking of the Predator arsenal…this trailer was one of the hardest but rewarding to make because we had so much to share about our Predators. We wanted to be certain we conveyed that the Predator, male and female, is truly the universe’s deadliest adversary.

As far as weapons go, the Predator has crazy off-world tech at its disposal. Did you happen to catch the scene with the Smart Disc making multiple kills? It is personally one of my favorites. We have been demonstrating the wrist blades and plasma caster at events since August, but this trailer lets us show off even more.

Like the bow and Smart Disc, the Combistick is another weapon that is super deadly. In battle, the Combistick extends to become a spear both useful in close combat or from a distance. In the trailer, there is the close combat scene where the Predator impales an NPC and lifts him into the air on the Combistick. This is exactly what one should expect when fighting a Predator wielding this weapon.

In our game, we wanted to make sure players had a way to customize their own Predator depending on how they want to hunt. On top of choosing your own armor design, we created three Predator classes with different styles of play, strengths and weaknesses to select from.

Play as a Hunter, the balanced killer, the agile Scout that can quickly stalk their prey, or the brutal Berserker that is strong and able to take massive damage.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Announced For PS4, Xbox One and PC

On the heels of the award-winning Resident Evil 2, this highly demanded follow-up in the 94 million unit selling franchise once again utilizes Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine to complete the Raccoon City story arc. Resident Evil 3 stars Jill Valentine–one of video games’ most iconic heroines–as she escapes from a crumbling Raccoon City while being pursued by the unrelenting bioweapon Nemesis. Players can also participate in previously untold Umbrella experiments on the outskirts of Raccoon City in the included online asymmetrical multiplayer game Resident Evil: Resistance, previously known as the working title Project ResistanceResident Evil 3 will be available on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Steam on April 3, 2020.

Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation. The game marks the debut of Nemesis–a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for both brutality and high-functioning intelligence–whose dogged hunt of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil series. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any obstacle on the path to his target.

Jill’s harrowing escape takes place in the panic-stricken hours leading up to and following the events of the acclaimed best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense combat and puzzle solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse. The horrific settings from the original game and new content come to life as never before with RE Engine, previously utilized to create the acclaimed Resident Evil 7: biohazardResident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5 with high-definition graphics and modernized gameplay mechanics.

Resident Evil: Resistance

Complementing the action-packed single player campaign is Resident Evil: Resistance, an asymmetrical four-versus-one multiplayer game originally unveiled as a working title at Tokyo Game Show earlier this year. As the Mastermind behind the scenes, players can assume the role of key Resident Evil characters like Annette Birkin in a series of deadly experiments. Manipulate the environment and wield a deck of cards to place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponized security cameras to snare hapless Survivors. A first for the franchise, Masterminds can even directly control elite bioweapons like G-Birkin and Tyrant. In turn, four Survivors must effectively work together, making the most of a variety of weapons and each player’s unique special abilities, to stand a chance of escaping the experiment before time runs out.

Paper Beast Delayed to 2020

Here are the latest details, via PlayStation Blog:

In Paper Beast, I want the player to feel like they are the first explorer of a virgin land. This is how we created the game: as a journey through a unique wilderness where no human being has ever set foot.

The game leads you to discover fauna and flora made from origami paper, folded metal, coral… Some elements seem familiar, such as water and sand, while others are more surreal, such as the creatures.

As you go through the game, you solve puzzles and obstacles, discovering a lot of surprises. The creatures help the player progress through their journey intuitively, without a word, since the game’s narrative is non-verbal.

You share a common goal with these animals: to progress and evolve in this world. You’ll create a strong bond as you interact and travel together.

This is also how we designed levels: as a journey, a migration.

The challenge was to create a credible wilderness. Thanks to our physical simulation of locomotion, the animals move as if they had muscles and bones.

This technology is the core of the gameplay: the engine calculates the creatures’ movement in real time to allow them to react to all the player’s actions. Creatures will also adapt their movements to the terrain and the obstacles on their path.

In this trailer we present how the player can manipulate the terrain to solve certain puzzles, like the creature you attract to help build a dam out of sand over the water. The ground and the various elements adapt automatically to the player’s actions. Everything is calculated in real time by the game’s engine. One of the things you can see in the video is that when you move a ball of sand, it leaves a trail on the ground.

The video focuses on a part of the game where the player helps metal creatures climb a slippery slope. The player enlists the help of the sand and nearby plants to move them. They manipulate their environment to help them progress. Once they reach their destination, the creatures use the fruit from the tree to fly away, tipping the player off as to how to continue the adventure.

The adventure you’re about to live is unique, full of surprising and unexpected events. That’s why Paper Beast is a true VR odyssey.

The game / creation tool, which allows users to make games, music, movies, art, and more to share with the online community, first launched in Early Access on April 16.

“Since Early Access began, we have seen skilled creators emerge to develop their own original characters and series; build their own fan bases, create viral content, make new genres of games, and collaborate across the world,” Media Molecule communications manager Abbie Heppe said on the PlayStation Blog. “More importantly, we’ve been updating Dreams based on users’ feedback, improving the experience and making it easier than ever to find and make cool content.”

Heppe continued, “We have also been working on a whole host of new things to inspire players at launch, including a totally new introduction to the game, a new season of tutorials, tool improvements, new game content, and a feature-length game, titled Art’s Dream. Art’s Dream was made by us to show the endless possibilities in Dreams; it crosses genres, features some amazing characters, and shows our love of music in a big way.”
