Assassin’s Creed Valhalla May Get Beowulf DLC

Published

on

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is another historical epic from Ubisoft, this time taking place in the dark ages and detailing the Viking conquest of large parts of England. But the series has always paid homage to famous myths and legends as well, and there’s reason to suspect that a piece of Valhalla DLC will explore the epic poem Beowulf.

A description on the German Ubisoft Store mentions the Beowulf DLC. A translated version of text promoting the season pass reads, “Includes the story mission: The Legend of Beowulf. Discover the cruel truth behind the legend.” GameSpot has contacted Ubisoft.

Beowulf is an epic poem composed around 1,000 ACE, in the midst of the dark ages that serve as the setting for Valhalla. In the story, the war hero Beowulf becomes a king and defeats a dragon at the cost of his own life.

Assassin’s Creed has been known for accurately reproducing history, even creating a “Discovery Tour” mode for Origins and Odyssey that let players explore landmarks without combat or story missions. But it has also been sprinkling in mythology and integrating it into the story. Odyssey’s campaign had Kassandra come face to face with mythological beasts like the Minotaur and Medusa, and the DLC even had you explore the Roman conception of the afterlife as well as the lost city of Atlantis. These are all treated as core to the story–Valhalla even picks up where the Atlantis story left off.

Minecraft trifft auf Bitcoin-Welt: Integration von Blockchain-Plug-In

Published

BitClave gehört zu den Unternehmen, die zur ICO-Boomphase Ende 2017 viele Millionen von Investoren einsammeln konnten. Nun kommt die Rechnung: Die US-Wertpapieraufsicht SEC fordert einen zweistelligen Millionenbetrag gegen das bereits operativ gescheiterte Krypto-Start-up zurück.

Die US-amerikanische Börsenaufsichtsbehörde (Securities and Exchange Commission, kurz SEC) hat gestern, am 28. Mai, Anklage gegen das Blockchain-Unternehmen BitClave PTE Ltd. mit Sitz in San Jose, Kalifornien, wegen der Durchführung eines nicht registrierten Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) angekündigt. BitClave erklärte sich bereit, die Gebühren durch die Rückzahlung der Erlöse aus dem Angebot und die Zahlung zusätzlicher finanzieller Erleichterungen zu begleichen. Die Gelder aus dem Entschädigungsfonds sollen den Investoren zugutekommen.

Die kurze Erfolgsgeschichte von BitClave

Das Krypto-Start-up BitClave dürfte sinnbildlich für viele Krypto-Start-ups stehen, die zur richtigen Zeit in 2017 viel Geld durch ein ICO einsammeln konnten, ohne es aber letztlich zu schaffen, einen kommerziell erfolgreichen Use Case von dem vielen Geld aufzubauen. Laut Anordnung der SEC hat BitClave von Juni bis November 2017 durch den Verkauf seiner Consumer Activity Tokens (CAT) an circa 9.500 Investoren, darunter auch Investoren in den USA, über 25 Millionen US-Dollar eingenommen.

Die Anordnung stellt fest, dass BitClave, wie in seinen Angebotsunterlagen erläutert, plante, die ICO-Einnahmen zur Entwicklung, Verwaltung und Vermarktung einer blockchainbasierten Suchplattform für gezielte Verbraucherwerbung zu verwenden. BitClave unterstrich seine Erwartung, dass die Token an Wert gewinnen würden, und unternahm Schritte, um die Token nach dem ICO für den Handel auf Krypto-Handelsplattformen verfügbar zu machen.

Die Regulierungs-Falle hat zugeschnappt

Damit hat BitClave nach US-Gesetz Token verkauft, die als Wertpapiere bei der SEC hätten registriert werden müssen. Viele ICOs hatten gehofft mit ihren Token nicht unter das Wertpapiergesetz zu fallen. Die SEC sieht das anders und stellt in ihrer Verfügung fest, dass BitClave es versäumt hat, ihre Angebote und Verkäufe von CAT, die Wertpapiere darstellten, zu registrieren. Man hat CAT inzwischen von vielen Krypto-Börsen entfernt. Auch ist BitClave derzeit dabei, seinen Betrieb einzustellen und plant nicht, die Plattform weiterzuentwickeln.

Ohne die Feststellungen der SEC zuzugeben oder zu dementieren, stimmte BitClave der Zahlung von 25.500.000 US-Dollar, Verzugszinsen in Höhe von 3.444.197 US-Dollar und einer Strafe von 400.000 US-Dollar zu.

Fortnite’s Rarest Skin Recon Expert Makes a Surprise Appearance

ultra rare recon expert fortnite skin

Fortnite’s ultra rare skin called Recon Expert has just been released in the item shop a few hours ago. Recon Expert is one of the most sought out skins in the game that only true OGs had prior to this day. Some users reported even paying hundreds of dollars for an account with that skins..

Well, those that paid high prices for accounts with that skin are definitely not happy right now that this skin is out for everybody to purchase for only 1,200 Vbucks.

Qries

You already know I had to get that skin the second I saw it.

Many Fortnite players still can’t believe that the skin is actually there, and what’s more is that the item shop refreshed at very random time as well.

Some are speculating that the item shop refreshing early must have been a bug, but with the release of such a sought out skin, was it just a coincidence after all?

Let me know what you guys think!

Daniel Abt fired from Audi’s Formula E team for using pro sim driver in virtual race

Published

on

Audi fired Daniel Abt from its Formula E racing team after learning he had a professional sim driver race for him during a virtual competition called the “Race at Home Challenge” held over the weekend.

The automaker said in a statement via Formula E that Abt had been suspended from Audi Sport “with immediate effect.” However, it appears the consequences are more serious and final. Abt said in a video message published Tuesday on YouTube that Audi had dropped him from the team.

“Today I was informed in a conversation with Audi that our ways will split from now on,” Abt said, according to a translation of the video message. “We won’t be racing together in Formula E anymore and the cooperation has ended. It is a pain which I have never felt in this way in my life.”

The 14-minute video was meant to explain the incident that occurred May 23 during the virtual competition, Abt said. He claims that it was all meant as a joke, which he intended to publicize after the race.

Abt tapped 18-year-old pro sim driver Lorenz Hoerzing to take his spot in the fifth round of Formula E’s online sim racing series. Unlike the real Formula E race series, this was meant to entertain fans and raise funds for UNICEF.

Hoerzing came in third in the race. Questions were raised almost immediately following the virtual event when Abt didn’t appear on the post-race interview.

Abt explained, via translation of the video, the plan.

“We had a conversation and the idea came up that it would be a funny move if a sim racer basically drove for me, to show the other, real drivers, what he is capable of and use the chance to drive against them,” Abt said. “We wanted to document it and create a funny story for the fans with it.”

Abt later added that it was never his intention to “get a result and keep quiet about it later on just to make me look better.”

Abt has also been fined €10,000, which will be sent to the charity.
