Xbox head Phil Spencer noted that the company is not currently planning what it will do with Bethesda titles, addressing community questions surrounding console exclusivity for games as a result of the planned ZeniMax acquisition in an interview with GameReactor Monday.

Spencer clarified where the process currently leaves Microsoft and ZeniMax-owned IP in the interview, which you can read in its entirety here.

“First of all, I would like to say that we haven’t acquired ZeniMax,” Spencer told GameReactor. “We have announced our intention to acquire ZeniMax. It is going through regulatory approval and we don’t see any issues there.”

Spencer then noted that because the ink is not dry yet on the ZeniMax deal, planning for game exclusivity is not happening yet.

“We expect early in 2021 the deal will close,” Spencer said. “… I’m not sitting down with Todd Howard and Robert Altman and planning their future. Because I’m currently not allowed to do that, that would be illegal.”

Spencer stated that he gets asked frequently about which games of ZeniMax’s portfolio might be Microsoft exclusives.

“And right now, that is not my job in regards to ZeniMax,” Spencer said of these questions.
“My job is not to sit down and go through their portfolio and dictate what happens.”

Overall, Spencer seemed enthusiastic about the upcoming acquisition.

“In terms of what I want long term,” Spencer said, “I want those amazing [studios] to create the best games they ever created.”

Will New World be released on console?

Published

on

Amazon Games’ new MMORPG, New World, is set to release on Sept. 28. The long-awaited game will finally launch after several delays in both the alpha and beta testing periods, and players will have the ability to explore the world of Aeternum to its fullest extent after a lengthy development process. 

But while many prospective New World players anticipate the title’s launch, others will look to experience the game on their console. Unfortunately for those users, New World will not be available to play on any current and viable generation of gaming consoles. Ahead of the game’s imminent launch, Amazon Games has explicitly stated New World will only be available to play on PC. 

Will New World ever be released on console?

Amazon Games has said on repeated occasions New World will not be available to play on consoles, and that the studio has no intentions of developing a console version for the game at this time. As recently as July 2021, Amazon Games stated New World would only be available on PC at launch. 

Traditionally, games in the MMORPG genre have mainly been played on PC, but a few have been ported over to consoles in recent years to reach a wider audience. Titles like Final Fantasy XIV, Path of Exile, and The Elder Scrolls Online, for example, were given full-scale console releases. New World, however, will only be available on PC for the time being, and perhaps in the extended future.

New World launches on Sept. 28 through the Steam client. Steam codes for the game can alternatively be purchased via Amazon.

How to watch today’s ALGS Pro League qualifiers

Published

on

A broadcast of preseason qualifiers for the top tier of the North American Apex Legends circuit is scheduled for later today. Several prominent streamers and pros, like Jack “NiceWigg” Martin and Timmy “iiTzTimmy” An, will look to earn their place in the Apex Pro League with a win. 

The competition in North America’s final rounds of qualifying begins at 8pm CT. It will be streamed by GameTime, as well as by many of the players on their own Twitch channels. GameTime’s stream will feature commentary from casters Josh Howard and Rafael “DiA” Ruiz.

Today’s competition marks the end of the second of four preseason qualifiers for the Apex teams that weren’t lucky enough to receive an invite to the pro league of the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS). These preseason qualifiers, played out over four tournaments before the start of the ALGS regular season, will determine which teams will round out the pro league lobbies. 

The winners of the qualifiers in each region gain automatic entry into the pro league, where they’ll play for their share of the $5 million ALGS prize pool. Sixteen other teams that didn’t notch a win in the qualifiers will still make the cut for the pro league based on strong performances throughout the four preseason tournaments, while the rest of the pool will be relegated to the second-tier Challengers circuit.

There were some notable snubs among the invites to the Apex Pro League in North America. Five-time ALGS winner Ryan “ImMadness” Schlieve, who was recently let go from CLG, didn’t receive an invite, for example. His new squad, known as BenchWarmers, had an easy time of it in the beginning rounds of the qualifiers but struggled later this weekend as the competition grew more fierce. The team, rounded out by XSET’s Beau “RamBeau” Sheidy and Cloud9’s Logan “Knoqd” Layou, barely squeaked into the finals. Only 10 teams advanced from the semifinals and they came in 10th place.

NiceWigg, another ex-CLG player, has qualified for the finals with his teammates iiTzTimmy and Apryze. Both NiceWigg and iiTzTimmy are prominent content creators in the Apex scene with over 1.5 million Twitch followers between them. But this is a new, untested team and the qualifying lobbies haven’t been a walk in the park. 

Both teams will look to win tonight’s finals outright, which would give them a bye through the rest of the qualifiers and cement their place in the pro league regular season, which begins on Oct. 16.

How to add a lurk command on Twitch

Published

on

A lurk command is a simple addition to your stream that you can add on any streaming software of your choice. The command allows non-active audience members, often called lurkers, a way to show they are still supporting the stream despite their inactivity. 

You can set up your lurk command in just a few simple steps. First, open up your streaming platform and go to your bot. Make sure your bot is properly enabled and modded. If it is not already set up, go to your chat and input /mod followed by your bot. This will depend on your OBS of choice; for example if you are using Streamlabs you should type /mod Streamlabs or /mod Nightbot.

Go back to your bot in the OBS and select the Commands tab. From here, select the Add Commands option. Once again, using Streamlabs for an example, you would select Commands, then Custom and finally Add Command.

In the Command section, you can add your !lurk command and customize what you would like the text response to the command to be. You can change the details around the command further by setting who can use it and how often the response is triggered. 

Finally, all you have to do is hit confirm and the settings will be saved and ready to use in chat. When the changes are applied, anytime a chatter types “!lurk”, your custom message will appear saying something along the lines of “I see you lurking, [Chatter’s name].” Of course, your message is entirely up to you and can be an extension for your channel’s brand or community.

While not every chatter may be able to actively engage with the stream at all times, a large majority still want to show their support. The lurk command not only provides audiences a way to communicate their support but gives the streamer another opportunity to add personality to the broadcast by adding a custom command that also promotes audience recognition.
