Pokémon Go Shiny Corsola, special costumed Pikachu promotion postponed for Pokémon Air Adventures

Published

on

Due to “recent developments,” Niantic has announced it will be postponing the Pokémon Air Adventures collaboration that was scheduled to begin on July 22. 

This collaboration was supposed to launch as a tie-in with the new Pokémon Air Adventures travel initiative in Japan, which will feature Pokémon-themed jets starting with a Pikachu, in partnership with Japanese aviation company Skymark. It will also include Pokémon designed buses, trains, and airport gates, along with in-flight merchandise.

Niantic would have pushed some in-game content live in Pokémon Go to help promote players going and creating “wonderful travel memories” alongside this collab. This was supposed to let players in Okinawa, Japan encounter a special Pikachu wearing an Okinawan kariyushi shirt. 

It also would have seen Shiny Corsola made available for the first time as a separate regional exclusive in areas that Corsola normally appears, like points in Australia, Florida, and other tropical areas.

The developers were also going to look into potentially adding more costumed Pokémon that would be exclusive to certain regions in order to promote travel in other areas of the world, beyond just this activation. 

There are no specifics about why the collaboration was postponed, but Niantic has promised to share more information once details surrounding the decision have been finalized. It is likely that data local health authorities has led to the idea being shelved until a later date.

PUBG Season 13 adds map updates, new Emergency Landing, and Secret Room mechanics for Taego

Published

on

PUBG is getting a big update in August, with Season 13.1 bringing some fixes and the introduction of the Taego Secret Room for the game’s newest map when it launches on Aug. 4. 

The Taego Secret Room is a randomly spawning area that will appear on the map and contain some of the best gear available in PUBG. Players can try to track the room down or just randomly stumble upon it, but anyone who wants to enter will need to find the secret key, too. 

Season 13 also introduces a new ranked season, adjustments to the Sanhok map, and even more changes for Taego, including the introduction of plane Emergency Landings at the start of some matches. 

At the start of some games, the plane carrying players into the Taego map could experience an engine exploding that will force it to make an quick emergency landing. Any player that doesn’t jump out before the plane hits the ground will begin the match with 50 percent of their base health. 

The PUBG team is also working to improve Sanhok by adjusting the geography of the Northwest Island to feature small cliffs and rocks, providing some much-needed cover for players moving across the shore.  

Ranked Season 13 brings an entirely new collection of rewards will be live to earn for players for two months, starting on Aug. 4. Players who participated in Season 12 will also automatically have any rewards they unlocked added to their inventory at the start of Season 13. 

The 13.1 update map rotation will see Paramo replaced with Karakin in Normal Matches. Here is the full rotation list. 

  • Erangel
  • Miramar
  • Sanhok
  • Vikendi
  • Karakin

PUBG Season 13 launches on Aug. 4 for PC players and Aug. 12 for consoles, with the update live right now on the PC Test Server.

Published

on

Spurs Sports & Entertainment, which owns the NBA franchise San Antonio Spurs among other teams, has made a minority investment into Tribe Gaming. Tribe is a mobile esports organization that was founded in 2017 and is based in San Antonio, Texas.

Tribe’s founder and CEO Patrick “Chief Pat” Carney said the investment will open roads for multiple long-term collaborations with the sporting and entertainment company and will help the organization “dominate the world of mobile esports.” This includes “cross-content collabs, co-branded marketing efforts, talent and audience crossovers, and shared strategic expertise.”

“Bringing SS&E into the Tribe Gaming family is a massive milestone for our company,” Carney said. “With SS&E having achieved decades of unparalleled success in the traditional sports world, we’re excited to leverage this partnership towards building the leading mobile gaming esports organization.”

SS$E now joins basketball player for Charlotte Hornets Gordon Hayward, mobile gaming veteran Kristian Segerstrale, WWE wrestler Claudio Castagnoli, and angel investor Victor Krahn in having a stake at Tribe.

Currently, the esports organization has five teams in different mobile games. These are Brawl Stars, CoD: Mobile, Clash Royale, Wild Rift, and Clash of Clans. Besides this, Tribe boasts an impressive lineup of 18 content creators, which includes OJ, Lex, Kairos, Ferg, and others.

Earlier this month, Tribe also unveiled consumer technology brand Elgato as a content creation partner. This partnership will see the establishment of a streaming series on Tribe’s YouTube channel, a creator incubation program, and creator education sessions. The organization has also said that it will be making some more announcements over the coming weeks.

The Suicide Squad’s Bloodsport is coming to Fortnite

Published

on

The DC Comics and Fortnite collaborations keep on coming, with The Suicide Squad director James Gunn sharing that one of the film’s stars, Bloodsport, will be coming to the Fortnite island.

In a clip shared to social media, Idris Elba, one of the film’s lead actors and the star portraying Bloodsport in the upcoming film, announced the news of Bloodsport coming to the island. The clip shows how the iconic DC antihero will look in-game, but fans will have to wait until tomorrow for more information on how they can get their hands on this collaboration.

James Gunn’s film The Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres and HBO Max on Aug. 6, bringing plenty of DC’s more obscure and underutilized characters to the big screen for the first time. DC’s relationship with Fortnite would seem stronger than ever with the two companies that have worked together on the Batman / Fortnite: Zero Point comic series, which has run for six issues so far. 

Even this season’s battle pass boasts one of DC’s most iconic characters, Superman, who will be joining the cast later this month. While Bloodsport is joining the cast, it isn’t clear if any of the other members of The Suicide Squad will be brought into the action aside from Harley Quinn, who has been available in the game for a while.

If you’re eager to add Bloodsport to your collection of characters in Fortnite, you’ll want to keep an eye out when more news drops tomorrow regarding his release.
