About the Rainbow Six Esports global program
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’s Esports includes 4 main regions, Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. All four regions run in parallel their own dedicated regional leagues, all feeding into one unique and global race towards a qualification for the Six Invitational, the pinnacle of the Rainbow Six Siege competitive year. Each regional league ties into a coherent global program, one unique race towards a qualification for the Six Invitational. As teams across the four regions face off in regional and global competitions, featuring 3 Majors and regional leagues, they will be ranked based on a new and in-depth point system that rewards sustained performance. Each competitive Season runs for nearly a year, from March through the following February. Each Season will be divided into 4 quarters. The first three quarters correspond to the 3 “Stages” of the regional leagues and conclude with a Six Major bringing together 16 of the world’s best teams – four per region across the four regions. Each stage awards prize money and points for the Global Standings. The Global Standings determine the sixteen teams earning a spot to the annual Six Invitational. Following the 3 stages, the last quarter of the season will be dedicated to regional finals and relegations. The season will then conclude with the Six Invitational that will crown the world’s best team. Four additional teams will also have a chance to qualify for the Six Invitational through Regional Open Qualifiers, making the Six invitational a 20-team competition. A notable exception to the global structure will be the first Season of 2020. As the transition and sunset of the legacy Pro League program, this year will shorten the program to only 2 stages with two Six Majors this year.

UBISOFT’S ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA IS THE BIGGEST ASSASSIN’S CREED GAME LAUNCH IN HISTORY


Despite the slow pacing I am really enjoying my time in Valhalla at the moment. 10 hrs in and I have not long got to England and already started going walk about. Currently playing on the Xbox One X and it does the job beautifully even without all the next gen bells and whistles. 
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the biggest launch of any Assassin's creed title.  With the year that was it is easy to see why. 

Check out the below release info full of all the information you could want.

The Premiere Next-Gen Title Sold Through More Units in First Week Than Any Other Assassin’s Creed Game  
Biggest PC Launch Ever for a Ubisoft Game

Ubisoft® has announced strong early sales for Assassin’s Creed® Valhalla, one of the highest rated games this season1. Building on favorable review scores and early player response, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has sold through more units in its first week than any other Assassin’s Creed game sold during the same period.  Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has also become the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, driven by all-time record Ubisoft Store sales performance. With strong feedback from players on next-gen consoles, ACV is delivering on its promise to make the most of the new hardware. 

“We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support.  Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much,” said Julien Laferrière, producer on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. “Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come.” 

Players are already well into their adventure in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, covering more than 4 million kilometers, building their settlements (over 55 million buildings already unlocked since launch) and becoming fully immersed in the Norse and Saxon culture through the Orlog dice games (over 3.5 million games of Orlog have been won so far) or even enjoying the drinking and flyting contests (over 1.8 million players have won at least one drinking game since launch). 


With development led by Ubisoft Montreal2, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor, a legendary Viking warrior, driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in ninth century AD. Players can relive the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors with a revamped dual-wielding combat system and experience new gameplay features such as raids, assaults, and the settlement, as well as a revamped progression and gear upgrade system. Political alliances, combat decisions and dialogue choices can influence the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so players must choose wisely to protect their clan’s home and their future.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, as well as on Stadia, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft’s subscription service, Ubisoft+.

DIRT 5 SCORES HIGH WITH CRITICS


DIRT 5 has been released and the critic scores are in, there is a heap of info below and you can watch the accolades trailer, or you can be here and read my quick break down on what DIRT 5 is all about...
I've played DIRT 5 on the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series S. The game itself is a definite leap in the DIRT series and is just good fun. One thing though, The Series S doesn't do it justice, the One X runs it smooth and crisp, the Series S is only good for the ray tracing bits which are a small part. 
Quite simply, if you like dirt racing titles then you need to try out DIRT 5. If you can get your hands on the PS5, Series X or on the PC it will definitely be a good opener to next gen gaming. 

Pat (Snoogs)

Codemasters® today shares the DIRT 5 accolades trailer following critical acclaim since launch on 6 November. Developed by the Codemasters Cheshire studio, DIRT 5 has been praised for its diverse mix of game modes from traditional racing across global locations, to the innovative new Playgrounds and four-player split-screen, as well as its implementation of next-generation features on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation® 5 including smooth 120 frames-per-second gameplay.

The accolades trailer can be viewed below:


DIRT 5 offers a thrilling and accessible experience for players of all abilities, featuring 13 vehicle classes to race across 70 routes in 10 global locations. DIRT 5’s Career stars the voice talents of gaming icons Troy Baker and Nolan North alongside the effervescent duo of James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes of Donut Media, as well as cameos from the world of gaming and motorsport.

The DIRT series’ most ambitious game mode to-date, Playgrounds, invites players to Create, Share, and Discover custom arenas across three event types: Gate Crasher, Smash Attack, and Gymkhana. This compelling community-driven experience is accompanied by traditional online multiplayer racing, party modes, and up to four-player split-screen offline for thrilling couch competition. A rich livery editor, Photo Mode, Arcade, and Time Trial round off this densely populated title.

“From the star-studded Career to our newest addition, Playgrounds, the team have put their hearts and souls into creating an exciting, action-packed, and most importantly, fun game,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “It’s humbling to see that critics and players around the world are enjoying their time with DIRT 5, no matter which platform they’re playing on.”

DIRT 5 is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation® 4, and PC via Steam. The PlayStation® 5 version is out now in North America, Australia, and New Zealand and will be launching on 19 November on in all other territories. A Google Stadia version will launch in early 2021.

ASCEND TO GLORY IN GODFALL ON PLAYSTATION 5


With the launch of the PS5 we have also had the launch of Godfall. Below we have the official release and the launch trailer. 
Unfortunately Godfall has not been well received. But it definitely looks cool and when my PS5 gets here I am tempted to give it a go. 

Check out the release details and if you've had a go please let me know your thoughts. 

Pat (Snoogs)

 
Godfall, a PlayStation 5 exclusive launch title, is now available on the PlayStation 5 in Australia. Developed by Counterplay Games, Godfall is a first-of-its-kind, looter-slasher, melee action-RPG. 
  
Godfall is set in Aperion, a land on the precipice of ruin, and you are the last of the Valorian knights, god-like warriors able to equip Valorplates, legendary armour sets that transform wielders into unstoppable masters of melee combat. Tear through foes as you climb through the elemental realms and challenge the mad god, Macros, who awaits you at the top. 

“Bringing a new world to life and a new IP to gamers has been a real driving force throughout the development of Godfall,” said Keith Lee, CEO of Counterplay Games. “We can’t wait to see how players tinker with their load-outs to allow their unique playstyles to shine as they fight through the beautiful world of Aperion.”
 
Players who pick up Godfall this week have a lot to look forward to, including: 
  • The many realms of Aperion await: Adventure across exotic vistas, from the above-ground reefs of the Water Realm to the subterranean crimson forests of the Earth Realm 
  • Master breathtaking weapons: Master all five weapon classes, each with unique playstyles and a variety of Longswords, Polearms, Warhammers, Greatswords, and Dual Blades 
  • Become unstoppable: Level up, learn new skills, and uncover legendary weapons with devastating effects on the battlefield 
  • Unlock godlike armour: Unlock 12 Valorplates: Divine, Zodiac-inspired suits of armour that empower you to defeat every enemy between you and Macros 
  • Vanquish worthy foes: Test your skills in the Tower of Trials and challenge yourself against the toughest foes and earn top-tier loot 
  • Ascend together or solo: Fight solo, or alongside friends with three-player player-versus-environment online co-op play 
 
While many reviewers are still spending time exploring Aperion, early impressions of the game have praised its stunning graphics and dynamic combat: 
 
  • “It looks great on PS5. Load times are actually next-gen....with a smooth framerate to boot. Particle effects are dazzling at times, with steel scraping against each other to great effect,” writes Destructoid. “The DualSense is there every step of the way, with enhanced feedback and rumble that feels fun.” 
  • “Godfall really does look great,” IGN says, “…with vibrant environments and incredible character, world and equipment designs.” 
  • “There’s genuine weight to each weapon, making each hit feel slower and more impactful than a standard sword swing,” says DigitalTrends. “The trade-off is that players need to think more strategically about every hit, as committing too much can lead to disaster. Each button press matters, which is rare in a hack-and-slash game.” 
  • “Combat, built from light and heavy attacks, parries and evasion, is polished to an artisan sheen, and makes every blow land with a shattering impact,” writes GamesRadar+. 
  • “Combat is satisfyingly meaty no matter which weapon type you choose. Each one feels noticeably different, too,” says GameSpot. “While Godfall is relatively simple on the surface, it has a lot of hidden depth that can boost your damage output and keep combat engaging.” 
 
“The team at Counterplay Games has created something really special and fitting for the PlayStation 5’s console launch with Godfall,” said Gearbox Publishing President Steve Gibson. “They’ve achieved an experience that is so unique, visceral, and satisfying we were thrilled that they partnered with us to bring this title to players, especially if they’re looking for something epic to kick-off the next generation of gaming on PS5.”
 
Godfall is available at Australian retailers on the PlayStation 5.

The 2020 Player 2 Charity Marathon Kicks Off with the Terry Campese Foundation


I have always believed in the good you can do simply by helping others. Top of my list has always been kids and those that help them. 
Being in the gaming community we are poised to help out in unique ways be it raising funds or giving an opportunity to those in need to join in the fun of gaming and bringing that smile to their face. 
Once again the good people over at Player 2 are strapping on the boots for a marathon 24hr Charity stream in support of the Terry Campese Foundation. With not only the chance to help others but also the chance to pick up some cool prizes!

Check out the full details below and LINKS at the bottom to take you there. 



The 2020 Player 2 Charity Marathon is coming this weekend and will once again be supporting the fine
work of the Terry Campese Foundation. Player 2 has already raised over $12000 dollars for the
foundation over the last three years and is looking to raise that total with a goal of $4000 this year.
Last year the money raised went to buying 3 complete gaming setups (Games console, GAEM
Vanguard and games) for small country hospitals, allowing them to provide entertainment for their
pediatric wards and community health programs.

To encourage people to donate this year, Player 2 has organised a massive major prize of an Xbox
Series X, 12 Months of Gamepass Ultimate and a host of games and merchandise for one lucky winner.
Every $5 donated gets an entry in this massive draw. To go with this, there will be hourly prizes, lucky
draws and a whole host of fun as the Player 2 team plays one game every hour for 24 hours.


“I wasn’t actually going to run the event this year” Said Player 2 Editor and Terry Campese Foundation
Board Member Matt Hewson “Simply because I didn’t want to run the concept into the ground. We
were actually looking at trying something different, but with COVID coming along and spoiling a lot of
the foundation’s fundraising activities I felt I had to get the band back together and once again fight
my need for a good night’s sleep”

This year all funds raised are going to help the Queanbeyan Sleep Bus Initiative. This is a bus that has
been fitted out to provide emergency housing for those that find themselves in need of a place to
stay. The Sleep Buss exists for victims of abuse, teens that have been kicked out of home and those
that find themselves in need of safe shelter for the night. This project is filling a desperate need in the
Queanbeyan, Bungadore and Braidwood areas and is something that the Foundation is proud to be
supporting.

The event starts at 8am AEST on the 21st of November and will run through to 8am on the 22nd. The
entire event will be broadcast on the Player 2 Twitch Channel (https://www.twitch.tv/player2au) and
further information can be found on the Player 2 Website (www.player2.net.au). The Player 2 crew
hopes you will join them on the day and help them achieve their goal of $4000 raised for this great
cause.

mission to destabilise the global balance of power and change the course of history.
