Call Of Duty Mobile "Steel Legion" Update Now Live

Call of Duty Mobile imitates the style of its PC and console counterparts, right down to issuing regular content updates as a live game. The latest season is Steel Legion, introducing new game modes, a new map, and some fan-favorite characters.

A limited-time 2v2 Showdown mode pits you and a partner against another squad of two with single elimination rules and random loadouts that change every two matches. The first pair to win six matches wins the round. If no one pulls that off, you go into an overtime capture-the-flag mode. The update reintroduces the 20v20 Battle Royale mode, but now you can play in first-person perspective. Battle Royale also adds two new weapons, the HS2126 shotgun and UL736 LMG.

You’ll also be able to unlock two characters from the Black Ops series, David “Section” Mason and the war robot Reaper. Those are each available through the Battle Pass, which also includes a new RC Shock killstreak. Finally, the update adds the Black Ops 2 map Meltdown.

This follows just after the surprise-launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on PS4. Though various leaks gave away the secret ahead of time, its exact launch date was unannounced until it was suddenly available on the PlayStation Store. It’s the campaign only, without multiplayer, and it’s a PS4-exclusive until April 30. At that point it will also come to PC and Xbox One.

AT&T’s 39GHz spectrum win sets stage for national 3Gbps 5G service

Prior to this year, 5G carrier AT&T had already placed a large bet on the 39GHz millimeter wave radio band, acquiring FiberTower’s sizable 379MHz blocks of spectrum. Today, AT&T confirmed that it has more than doubled its national 39GHz spectrum holdings to 786MHz, on average, a development that should enable the carrier to offer at least 3Gbps download speeds across the country — assuming it has the wherewithal to actually build towers to support the short-distance mmWave holdings.

The considerably faster transfer speeds promised by 5G networks depend on empty spectrums — radio frequencies that aren’t already being used for other purposes. To hasten U.S. 5G development, the FCC has been auctioning blocks of millimeter wave spectrums, and AT&T swapped its FiberTower holdings for auction vouchers, enabling it to target contiguous spectrum blocks across the country. After bidding $2.4 billion, half from vouchers, AT&T won the 786MHz of nationwide 39GHz spectrum, bringing its national mmWave average to 1,040MHz, including separate 24GHz holdings.

Last April, AT&T said its Netgear Nighthawk 5G hotspot hit a 2Gbps peak on its enterprise-focused 5G mmWave network, surpassing the carrier’s initial promises of 1Gbps peaks. But AT&T’s consumer 5G network has been disappointingly slower, offering 4G-like speeds using low band spectrum. Like rival T-Mobile, AT&T has focused its consumer 5G launch on covering large swaths of land rather than on ultimate performance.

Doubling down on 39GHz means AT&T will have 800MHz bandwidth in some markets, enough for eight 100MHz channels. The carrier has previously said it can deliver up to 400Mbps of download speed per 100MHz channel, reaching 1.5Gbps across four channels, suggesting that 3Gbps should be easily attainable through all eight channels. Moreover, if a 5G device can simultaneously access AT&T’s 39GHz and 24GHz spectrums, or the 39GHz spectrum plus low or mid band channels, the speeds could be even higher.

While AT&T now has the spectrum to support a national 39GHz 5G network, its ability to build out the supporting tower hardware remains a question mark. Like other millimeter wave frequencies, a 39GHz signal’s ability to travel is measured in feet rather than miles, requiring significant “small cell” radio hardware deployments to provide service. As such, AT&T has signaled that it will initially use mmWave to provide peak speed “5G+” in dense urban environments, with no specific timeline for wider rollouts elsewhere.

By comparison, rival Verizon has focused almost exclusively on millimeter wave for its initial 5G rollout and has hit peaks in the 2Gbps range. Most of its real-world service has peaked at under 1.5Gbps, however, and the carrier has typically promised ideal performance of 1Gbps with more common speeds in the 600Mbps range.

Today’s announcement notes that AT&T’s 5G+ network is now available in parts of 35 cities and is initially being densified to provide mobile service at “arenas, campuses, and more,” with fixed (home broadband) service potentially to follow. AT&T currently sells only a handful of phones with 5G+ support, including the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra 5G, but the carrier is expected to broaden its selection later this year.

Pokemon Go Adding A Very Handy New Feature Soon

Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been making numerous adjustments to the popular AR game as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In addition to canceling a handful of events that were planned to take place this month (including this week’s Lugia Raid event), the studio has implemented a variety of tweaks to make it easier to play the game from home, including a handy new feature that will help you keep track of what’s happening in the title.

Niantic is introducing a Today View tab in Pokemon Go. This tab will be located in the same menu as your Field Research and Special Research tasks, and it will make it easier to keep track of what’s currently going on in the game. Among other things, Today View will display ongoing and upcoming in-game events, as well as personal stats, such as your daily streaks and what Pokemon you currently have defending Gyms.

Niantic hasn’t announced when the Today View tab will go live in Pokemon Go, but it teases that it will be rolled out “soon.” In the meantime, you can read more details about the upcoming feature on the official Pokemon Go website.

In another attempt to make Pokemon Go easier to play from home, the game is now offering extra bonuses indefinitely. For the time being, you’ll earn triple the normal amount of Stardust and XP for the first Pokemon you catch each day. The gift limit has also been increased; you can now open up to 30 gifts each day and carry up to 20 of them in your inventory. Finally, Niantic is offering a new, 1 PokeCoin bundle in Pokemon Go’s in-game store every day.

As previously mentioned, Lugia was scheduled to return to Raid Battles this week, but Niantic canceled that event. Instead, players will continue to be able to catch Cobalion as a Go Battle League reward until March 31. The Legendary Pokemon Landorus is slated to make its debut in Pokemon Go that same day, but it’s currently unclear if the ongoing coronavirus situation will affect those plans as well.

Pokemon Go Will Let You Do Raids From Home Soon

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forcing many parts of the country into lockdown, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been tweaking the hit AR mobile game to make it easier to play while social distancing. As part of the changes, the studio has recently begun offering 1 PokeCoin bundles in the in-game store and removed the walking requirement to take part in the Go Battle League, and it will soon let players participate in Raids from afar as well.

In a new blog post, Niantic outlined some further changes it will make to Pokemon Go. One of the most notable is that you won’t need to leave your home in order to join Raids. “You’ll soon be able to team up with friends and take on Raid Battles together in Pokemon Go from the comfort of home,” the developer wrote.

This is certainly a welcome change, as players previously needed to physically travel to a Gym where a Raid was taking place in order to join the battle. Raids are one of the few ways you can catch rare Legendary Pokemon, which are typically only available for a limited time, and this adjustment will ensure that everyone will have a chance to capture these monsters while they’re in the game.

That’s not the only change Niantic is making. The developer says it is also “working on an entirely new way to enjoy Pokemon Go Fest” this year, and it will also adjust the Adventure Sync feature so that it tracks your steps while performing indoor tasks “like cleaning your house and running on a treadmill.”

Beyond that, Niantic is also working on a handy new feature for Pokemon Go called Today View. This tab will display ongoing and upcoming in-game events, as well as personal stats, such as your daily streaks and what Pokemon you currently have defending Gyms, making it easier to keep track of what’s currently happening in the game.

A new Legendary Pokemon is also set to debut very soon. Landorus, the final member of the Forces of Nature trio, will be appearing in Raids from March 31 to April 21. The Mythical Pokemon Genesect is also set to debut in EX Raids in April, following its appearance as part of the recent Drive to Investigate Special Research story event.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Won't Be Delayed, But Physical Copies Might

Update (3/27): Square Enix has provided another update on Final Fantasy VII Remake’s physical release. Essentially, Square can’t guarantee that physical copies will make it in time for FFVII Remake’s April 10 launch as “many countries are limiting entry or closing their national and state borders and restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items.” However, Square remains committed to ensuring that FFVII Remake pre-orders placed through the company’s official store are delivered in time for launch.

Update (3/20): Square Enix has shared a quick update on the state of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s release. According to the statement below, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is “increasingly likely to affect the distribution and retail landscape in Europe, Australia, and the Americas.” In a similar situation, Amazon said shipments for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom Eternal could be delayed because of the pandemic. As it stands, though, Square Enix remains committed to meeting FFVII Remake’s April 10 PS4 launch–if you want to grab it digitally, you’re set.

Original story follows below…

Square Enix, after assessing the global impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, is still moving forward with Final Fantasy VII Remake’s April 10 release date on PlayStation 4. However, the company has stated that the virus’s spread may cause the game’s distribution to get caught up, causing issues for those seeking physical copies of the game on day one.

According to a statement from FFVII Remake’s official Twitter, “the unforeseeable changes in the distribution and retail landscape” has increased the likelihood that fans may not get their physical copies of the game on April 10.

This comes amid a similar scenario to the releases of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom Eternal, in which retail chain GameStop has cancelled the midnight launches of these two games in response to growing concerns over the coronavirus. Both titles launched Friday, March 20.

“Due to the extraordinary circumstances the world is facing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to update you on how this will impact the forthcoming release of Final Fantasy VII Remake,” the statement reads. “Our priority is the wellbeing and safety of our fans and customers, taking into account regional government and World Health Organization advice.

“The worldwide release of Final Fantasy VII Remake on April 10 will go ahead. However, with the unforeseeable changes in the distribution and retail landscape which varies across countries, it is increasingly likely that some of you will not get hold of your copy of the game on the release date.

“We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and working with our partners, retailers, and Square Enix teams across Europe and the Americas, to do everything we can to ensure as many of you as possible can play the game on April 10.”

Square Enix recently shared a ton of new FFVII Remake screenshots that show off some brand-new characters and locations, Cloud in a dress during the controversial (and now extremely high-res) cross-dressing mission, and more. We’ve also learned that Red XIII won’t be playable in this upcoming release.

Call Of Duty: Mobile Trades Zombies For Rapid Fire, Sticks And Stones Modes

Along with a bunch of other additions across the Call of Duty franchise, Activision has detailed two brand-new modes coming to its on-the-go Call of Duty Mobile game developed by TiMi Studios.

The first mode is Rapid Fire, a limited-time event that sees players earning Operator Skills and Scorestreaks at a much faster rate. In addition to this added firepower, Rapid Fire makes ammunition completely unlimited for those more inclined to spray and pray. Rapid Fire will be available until Thursday, March 26.

Sticks and Stones is Call of Duty Mobile’s second limited-time event. A classic game mode in the Call of Duty series, Sticks and Stones sees players duking it out with a limited loadout–typically a crossbow and throwing axe–to see who can score the most points. While every kill earns points, the axe also provides the devastating effect of resetting your victim’s score when you kill them.

While this week sees Call of Duty Mobile get some new content, the game will also lose something in turn. On Wednesday, March 25, the mobile game’s Zombies mode was removed. However, according to a Reddit Community Update, the supposed limited-time mode could make a return in the future.

Earlier this month, Call of Duty Mobile started a brand-new season that introduced a new Battle Pass, an additional map, extra Operators and weapons, and more. And a new Battle Pass means new tier rewards, of which they are plenty to unlock. You can check out the full tier rewards list below.

In other Call of Duty news, Zombies mode director Jason Blundell has left Activision. Blundell, who was employed at Black Ops 4 developer Treyarch for 13 years, said in a statement that he enjoyed working at the studio over the past decade-plus. This comes during the same year that Black Ops 5 is rumored to launch. There’s also a new map coming to Modern Warfare and weapons to Warzone.

Pokemon Go Getting A Very Helpful New Feature Soon

Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been making numerous adjustments to the popular AR game as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In addition to canceling a handful of events that were planned to take place this month (including this week’s Lugia Raid event), the studio has implemented a variety of tweaks to make it easier to play the game from home, including a handy new feature that will help you keep track of what’s happening in the title.

Niantic is introducing a Today View tab in Pokemon Go. This tab will be located in the same menu as your Field Research and Special Research tasks, and it will make it easier to keep track of what’s currently going on in the game. Among other things, Today View will display ongoing and upcoming in-game events, as well as personal stats, such as your daily streaks and what Pokemon you currently have defending Gyms.

Niantic hasn’t announced when the Today View tab will go live in Pokemon Go, but it teases that it will be rolled out “soon.” In the meantime, you can read more details about the upcoming feature on the official Pokemon Go website.

In another attempt to make Pokemon Go easier to play from home, the game is now offering extra bonuses indefinitely. For the time being, you’ll earn triple the normal amount of Stardust and XP for the first Pokemon you catch each day. The gift limit has also been increased; you can now open up to 30 gifts each day and carry up to 20 of them in your inventory. Finally, Niantic is offering a new, 1 PokeCoin bundle in Pokemon Go’s in-game store every day.

As previously mentioned, Lugia was scheduled to return to Raid Battles this week, but Niantic canceled that event. Instead, players will continue to be able to catch Cobalion as a Go Battle League reward until March 31. The Legendary Pokemon Landorus is slated to make its debut in Pokemon Go that same day, but it’s currently unclear if the ongoing coronavirus situation will affect those plans as well.

Fortnite Secret Passage Locations (Week 6 Challenge Guide)

It’s Week 6 of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, and that means the second set of Meowscles’ Mischief challenges is now live for Battle Pass owners. Like the first batch, some of the challenges are themed after the Meowscles skin, so you’ll be doing cat-like things like destroying doghouses. One challenge that may give you some trouble, however, is to ride the Steamy Stacks, a zipline, and use a Secret Passage.

Steamy Stacks is easy enough to find on the island, and there’s a zipline directly south of it, so the first two steps of this challenge shouldn’t be too difficult to accomplish. Secret Passages, however, might be trickier to track down, so we’ve put together this map and guide to help you out.

Where Are The Secret Passage Locations?

Secret Passages are among the new spy-themed features Epic introduced to Fortnite at the start of Season 2. Fortunately, there are a number of them scattered all around the island, and you only need to use one to complete this challenge, so it shouldn’t be too difficult. We’ve marked down the locations of all the Secret Passages we’ve found below. We’ve also highlighted Steamy Stacks and the zipline south of it in case you need help finding those as well.

How To Complete The Challenge

Now that you know where a bunch of Secret Passages are located, all you need to do is use one to complete that step of the mission. However, unlike the other Week 6 challenge that asks you to dance at Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals, you need to finish all three steps within a single match, so your best bet would be to pick a Secret Passage that’s close to Steamy Stacks and the zipline so you can complete the challenge quickly.

Season 2 of Fortnite is slated to end in April, so there are still a few more weeks of challenges in the pipeline before Season 3 arrives. If you need help completing any previous ones, we’ve rounded up all of our maps and guides in our Fortnite Season 2 challenges hub. Be sure to also check out our Fortnite Season 2 roundup to catch up on everything that’s new in Epic’s popular battle royale shooter this season.
