SIPWU 7.21.17 - Final Update
« on: July 21, 2017, 05:52:35 PM »

Today we have more patches and updates, as usual, a free Gold weekend, a popular game around here has a beta along with some other news. As you might have noticed from the title there is also some site news to cover. Be sure to check the announcements section for all the details on that. For now, let’s start with some gaming news.




Destiny

Starting today the Destiny 2 beta has opened to everyone for the weekend. Bungie has clarified in the weekly update that the build everyone is playing is months old and the actual game has gone through some significant changes since it was built. Concerns of Power ammo being too scarce and grenades not being very effective have already been addressed. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t voice any feedback you have, it actually means the opposite. Be sure to let them know what you think, politely, on the Bungie forums to make sure any concerns you have will be taken care of. The new social space “The Farm” will only be available for one hour on Sunday July 23rd starting at 10AM Pacific so be sure to jump in if you can.


Other Gaming News

Last month Trunks was revealed as the 7th playable character for Dragon Ball FighterZ. This week the developers released a Trunks Reveal Trailer. You can see the video below. A closed beta was also announced, which begins on July 26 and will include Trunks in the roster. The beta will be available to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players.



This week Titanfall 2 got a new DLC titled Operation Frontier Shield. You can expect a new mode, map and live fire map. For more details on the DLC check it out in our blog post.


For those of you who still play Diablo III a small patch was released this week that addresses hotfixes and minor bug fixes for the most recent patch, 2.6.0. To see the list of Patch notes, check it out right here.


This week DOOM received Update 6.66
 in which it receives fixes and other improvements across multiplayer and SnapMap. Some of you might notice that Bethesda has retired the DOOM season pass and are making all of the multiplayer DLC content available to all players. I’m sure some of you will be upset so I suggest you head to Bethesda’s Official Website.


Originally the main series was a PlayStation Exclusive. I guess the Developers had a change of heart since it’s also coming out for the Xbox One. The wait is nearly over. Fans have been waiting for Kingdom Hearts III for years, and earlier this week Square Enix announced that it will be releasing next year in 2018. Square Enix also showed off the game’s first Pixar world, which is Toy Story themed. I never played any Final Fantasy games but many people have compared the two games to be similar.



The Prise de Tahure update in Battlefield 1 is available now. The third monthly update comes with the release of the second additional map in the “They Shall Not Pass” DLC, the start of Premium Trials, changes to the user interface, additional features for the Rental Server Program, and a list of tweaks and fixes for the gameplay. For more details head on over to our blog post.


Telltale Games provided an update on some of their biggest series which will be coming this year and next. Batman will be getting a new season in just a few weeks titled “The Enemy Within.” A long requested second season of The Wolf Among Us is in development for an early 2018 release. And the series they are probably best known for, The Walking Dead, will be getting a fourth and final season some time in 2018. For more details on each of these you can read the full story here.


The first batch of cars announced for Forza Motorsport 7 was posted this week. From now until release Turn 10 will reveal a smaller set of cars each week. You can see all 160 of the announced cars right here. Forza 7 will be available on September 29th for Ultimate Edition owners, or October 3rd for the rest.


It’s a free Gold weekend! From now until Sunday, the 23rd all players on the 360 and Xbox One will be able to play multiplayer together. This also includes the Destiny 2 beta so don’t miss out if your membership has lapsed recently.

Announcements

As the title of this thread suggests we have some news to announce. Effective today, the Communiqué as you’ve known it will be shutting down with this being the final SIP Weekly Update. We’ve kept it going as long as we could, but the remaining team members have reached a point where real life responsibilities take priority which makes finding the time to write news regularly a bit difficult. The Games with Gold and some major news posts will continue, but there won’t be as much coming from us as you’ve been seeing. Down the road there may be members able to pick up the torch and bring this back, but for now this is how it has to be.

The SIP Weekly Update has been a feature of the group since 2008, when the group began. While not always staying weekly it has been a consistent source of information to keep members informed of the things going on. From the first update on June 1st, 2008 to now there have been so many members that participated in writing that it would be impossible to list them all. Thank you to everyone that has put in the time, from the occasional extra hand during E3 to the captains that steered the ship for years! We appreciate all of you, and the contributions you’ve made to the group.

Joinings

Soryiu or Neo will be running a Halo Game Night. Anyone can jump in, just be sure to register in the joining thread.

Stig, MrSerrano, and everyone who has contributed to the weekly updates for the last six years - thank you very much for your service to the SIP community! I know you spend many hours every week compiling the news from the gaming industry for us to digest and the updates do a great job at doing just that.

Best of luck in fulfilling your RL responsibilities and once again, thank you!
