I would say happy April Easter fools day ,but that was Sunday. So i guess welcome to the second of April(That is if this comes out at the precise date. (NO complaining EU and beyond). If you noticed around the web yesterday many areas did there own rendition of April fools. Though it was more than i could ever fit into this weekly of course. I suppose i am sort of dry with a witty comment for the editorial ,so i guess ill go back to far cry 5 .

Yet it seems the editorial was not of use due to the release time of the weekly. Much Sad

Thank you for proof reading and eat my shorts

Not really news , but a piece of tech that happened recently.

[video=youtube;cAxn-koJti8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAxn-koJti8[/video]

Andy Serkis and Unreal teamed up at GDC to showcase what may just be the future of video game motion capture technology.

It began with a video of Andy Serkis performing a monologue from Macbeth. The original performance is certainly captivating - it is Serkis, after all - but didn't seem to have anything to do with video game technology. However, Unreal then showed how a new technological concept known as "Project Spotlight" is able to project Serkis' facial expressions onto the face of a digital alien creature:


While the visual of that technology is impressive, the truly amazing aspect of the demonstration is the implication that the rendering was done in real-time. See, you could theoretically achieve similar effects using modern technology. The problem is the number of resources that such an effect demands and how you kind of have to shape your entire game around it. That's the issue the revolutionary L.A. Noire encountered. With Spotlight, though, developers are potentially able to render such effects without having to compromise the performance of the game itself. That's a literal game changer.

Before you get too excited, though, this technology is still in what should probably be considered a "developmental" stage. That means that it's not quite ready for primetime and may not become commonplace for a generation or so (if it becomes commonplace at all).​

Fortnite passes Minecraft to become the biggest game on YouTube

Fortnite racked up more than 2.4 billion views on YouTube in February alone.

We all know that Fortnite is big: The biggest game in the world by some measures. Ninja's recent Fortnite livestream with Drake crushed Twitch's concurrent viewer record with more than 630,000 people watching simultaneously at one point, a mark that was beaten just this week by a Spanish-language stream on YouTube that pulled in nearly 1.1 million concurrents.

Those are impressive moments by any measure, but according to "influencer marketing platform" Matchmade, Fortnite has now surpassed an even bigger milestone—Minecraft—to become the most-viewed game on YouTube. Minecraft has long dominated YouTube's videogame scene, accumulating billions of views per month. It's been in a slow decline since last summer, however, and while Fortnite has yet to hit Minecraft's lofty peak heights, it has now pulled ahead of it, breaking 2.4 billion views in February and climbing even higher this month.

Fortnite is also leaving leaving its more direct competitors in the dust. Clash Royale, the biggest mobile game on YouTube since March 2016 (minus a brief Pokemon Go interlude) has entered an accelerating decline since Fortnite showed up, and PUBG viewership has leveled off as well.

"The pace of Fortnite’s growth is astonishing. Between January and February, Fortnite’s viewership grew a whopping 151 percent," Matchmade wrote. "During the past 6 months, The average month-to-month growth rate of Fortnite viewership on YouTube is +97 percent. Content creators are on board, and we’ve seen the number of Fortnite videos jump from 9945 (Feb 1st) to 12762 (Mar 1st) in just one month—an increase of 28 percent."

Matchmaker cited a few possible factors behind Fortnite's spectacular YouTube growth. Some are obvious: Fortnite is free and available on just about every relevant platform while PUBG is restricted to PC and Xbox One and will set you back $30, and Fortnite is shiny and new, something Minecraft definitely is not. But YouTube also made changes to its algorithms in August 2017, "which changed how content is discovered" and also coincides with the beginning of Minecraft's and Clash Royale's decline.​

ORCS MUST DIE! DEVELOPER LAYS OFF STAFF

Robot Entertainment has let go 30 members of staff in a strategic decision that sees the studio shift its focus from two projects to just one.

"Over the past 18 months, our studio has had two teams working on different projects," said the studio's CEO Patrick Hudson. "Today, the company is making a strategic shift to focus on a single internal game project.

"Unfortunately, that means we need to resize our team to fit only one project. We've made the very difficult decision to let go of over 30 of our very talented and dedicated developers."

According to the company's LinkedIn profile, the studio has 65 members of staff, meaning the layoffs will see almost half its employees cut.

The studio initially expanded during development of Orcs Must Die! Unchained, which hit PlayStation 4 last year after its initial PC release.

Despite the layoffs, the studio says it will continue to support the title, as well as its most recent game, Hero Academy 2.

Robot Entertainment plans to unveil its newest offering "soon."​

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Testing Smaller Map

PlayerUnknown’s promise that PUBG Corp. would be bringing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ next map to test servers as soon as could be managed has come to fruition. The online multiplayer shooter’s social media accounts revealed today that the game’s highly anticipated 4×4-kilometer map, 1/4 the size of a standard map, will have a closed test starting next week.

Codenamed “Savage,” the smaller PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds map will only be available for a limited time. This first closed and limited test for Savage will run from April 2, 7:00 pm PT, through April 5, 4:00 am PT. Players who are interested in trying the map out will have to find a keycode. So far PUBG Corp. has implied that there will be a sign-up page going live soon, but it’s unclear if everyone who signs up will gain access.

PUBG Corp. initially announced its first 4×4 map as part of the reveal of its 2018 development roadmap less than a month ago. In the post from PlayerUnknown/Brendan Greene, he dedicated the company to deliver the map to fans for testing as soon as could be managed.

Just a week ago, the next step was taken and PUBG Corp. showed a first look at the map, a tropical island map filled with small villages and palm trees. Now we know that just two weeks after the map was first shown, it will be featured in a closed test. So far, so good regarding PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds development roadmap.

While frustrations with the game continue within the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds community, PUBG Corp. marches forward in development. Additions including weapon skins, the game’s Event Mode, and the briefly available counter-cheat patch show that the team is hard at work. 2018 will prove a definitive year for PUBG, for better or worse. But it’s definitely going to make it interesting either way.​

Music fits the theme of each map and does a good job hyping the player up for each blood bath

GAME HANDLING & OVERALL OPERATION MECHANICS:

Game runs very smooth and all of the animations have a great feel behind them, alongside having a wonderful combat system

FRAMES PER SECOND (FPS) & OVERALL OPTIMIZATION (BASED ON MY RIG SPECIFICATIONS!):

FINAL OVERALL RATING:
My final conclusion is this game is well worth the try if you ever enjoyed a fighting style game, this will serve as a breath of fresh air. The combat will feel rewarding and the characters are easy to obtain and very smooth to get to learn
