WoW XP boost until summer?

For fans of the greatest MMO in history, this is undoubtedly great news.

Blizzard has decided to extend until the release date of the pre-patch of the World Of Warcraft Shadowlands expansion, the 100% XP boost earned.

After hearing that the players of the game were very disappointed with the end of this bonus, Blizzard has decided to listen to them.

So 100% XP until a date to be defined, as the pre-patch of the latest expansion is not yet officialized.

CS:GO breaks DOTA 2 record

Following the adoption of regulations aimed at ensuring social distance within many countries in the world, the video games sector has experienced a period of sudden and robust growth.

Among the many factors, the numbers recorded over the last few weeks by the Valve home platform testify to this.

In fact, there were over 24 million users connected simultaneously on Steam, an absolute record for the portal dedicated to PC gaming.

In this context, among the games that attract the interest of users, CS:GO, and Dota 2 have been particularly successful.

In March 2016, Dota 2 had, in fact, reached the remarkable result of 1,291,328 active players at the same time.

On Friday, April 17, CS:GO reached 1,301,348 active players simultaneously within the title, according to data reported by Steam.

Apex Legends season 5 with surprise

In early April, a Californian team spokesman anticipated the arrival of a “pleasant surprise” linked to the Titanfall franchise during Season 5 of Apex Legends.

It seems the developers are already beginning to prepare the ground for what’s to come.

With a recent modification, they’ve introduced a mysterious datapad inside the Dome, a structure located to the southeast of the World Borders map.

The object in question has the ARES Division logo stamped on it.

What does this have to do with Titanfall 2?

If you’ve played the first-person shooter, then you know that ARES Division is involved in the events of one of the most memorable missions in the game.

What does ARES have to do with Apex Legends? No one knows at the moment.

What is certain is that a convergence is taking place between Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, which could move the fifth season of the battle royale quite a bit.
