DOOM is free this weekend and all its multiplayer DLC is free forever

DOOM was very popular when it first launched in May 2016 but unfortunately, the game’s multiplayer base didn’t end up staying healthy for very long. A big reason for this is that Bethesda split up the player base by releasing map packs, which isn’t a very good system unless you happen to be Call of Duty. Now this week, Bethesda is going back and fixing that with DOOM version 6.66, which makes all multiplayer content free and resets all progression back to zero. This is essentially a reboot for DOOM’s multiplayer. All season pass content for the game is now free, adding in nine new maps, three extra guns, three new demons, new armour sets and more. The multiplayer levelling system has also received some changes, everyone starts at zero to create a level playing field but now instead of random unlocks, players can work towards specific items by completing in-game challenges.

Xbox software sales up 11%, console revenue declines 29%

Microsoft announced its fourth quarter and year end results for 2017, and while hardware revenue declined, revenue from Xbox software increased. During the fourth quarter for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017, gaming revenue increased 3% to $44 million thanks to strength in Xbox software and services, which helped offset the 29% decrease in Xbox hardware revenue. Xbox software and services revenue increased 11%, primarily due to a higher volume of Xbox Live transactions. The Xbox hardware revenue decline was due to lower prices and a decline in volume of consoles sold. Xbox Live monthly active users (MaU) continued to grow, with Q4 seeing a 8% increase in users yoy, bringing the total to 53 million across Xbox One, Windows 10 and mobile. During Q4 and year-end 2016, Xbox Live users totaled 49 million.

Destiny 2 beta build is ‘months old,’ changes have already been made

During its latest weekly update, Bungie addressed player concerns about the currently ongoing beta for Destiny 2 by saying that changes have already been made. According to beta design lead Rob Engeln, the beta build that players are currently playing “is now months old” and changes have already been made to areas that players have had concerns about, such as ammo scarcity. Engeln explained that ammo drop rates have been returned to their original values and changes have also been made to grenades, boss health, and weapon damage. “The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old,” he said. “So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting.

Destiny 2 beta glitch gives players infinite super

Destiny 2 beta players have discovered a glitch that allows them to use their super indefinitely during the Inverted Spire Strike. The glitch was first discovered by the “LuCkyy_and_BW” Twitch channel (via Reddit). To perform the glitch, simply wait at the beginning of the Inverted Spire Strike until the Fallen arrive on their Pike vehicles. After this occurs, kill the riders, and then proceed to kill adds until you have a full super bar. Then walk up to the Pike, activate your super, and immediately get on the Pike. Finally, go into the menu and switch your primary weapon for another then switch it back. After exiting the menu, you should have infinite super use.
