Overwatch’s future in the competitive scene has been called into question after former professional and popular streamer, Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned published a video criticising the game’s “frustrating” mechanics.

If you’re a fan of either Paladins or Smite and you can’t make it down to Atlanta for the Hi-Rez Expo 2018 then you might get a severe case of FOMO this weekend. But fear not, as we can help you lessen that pain, if only a little.
Hi-Rez Studios has announced the next two Gods heading to Smite. During a speech at the company’s keynote presentation, Smite’s 99th and 100th playable characters were revealed, with the legendary King Arthur and the wizard Merlin heading to the game next year.
Cross-platform play and progression is heading to Paladins in an attempt to “break down the barriers that stop friends playing together.” During the keynote speech at its annual expo, publisher Hi-Rez Studios announced that developer Evil Mojo will also introduce a new character to the hero shooter – the mighty mage Imani, whose ultimate ability summons a dragon.
Open-world zombie survival game DayZ has sold four million copies. Developer Bohemia Interactive announced the milestone almost a week after rolling out a major PC patch, which finally prompted it to declare the game had entered a beta phase after its five-year spell in early access.
Nvidia has finally offered tacit confirmation its next-gen, mainstream GPUs will be built upon the Turing architecture.

In its latest v6.30 patch, Fortnite added a new weapon to its PvE Save the World mode. It’s named ‘Last Word Revolver’, in a clear nod to a fan-favourite weapon from the original Destiny – which doesn’t yet exist in Destiny 2.
The next-generation of mid-range Nvidia graphics cards won’t launch for at least another three to six months due to an overabundance of old Pascal stock. During Nvidia’s Q3 earnings call, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told investors that there are currently enough mid-range GPUs sitting idle in the channel to fulfil customer demand for an entire quarter… if not two. And you can be damned sure Nvidia won’t replace Pascal-based cards with fresh mainstream Turing GPUs until that much ageing stock has all been sold off.
