In Red Dead Redemption 2, there’s a specific patch of land that has invisible fire on it. The AI characters have no idea it’s there, and therefore, they have no reason to try to avoid this contaminated road. This means that players everywhere are leading their horses to a fiery, horrifying death, thanks to a bizarre glitch. The invisible fire is located on a road near Rhodes. Unexplained glitches that affect the game’s AI aren’t usually this awful and thankfully most of the other horse bugs in Red Dead have been a lot funnier.
Highlights of BlizzCon include multiple video releases of Blizzard’s franchise games. World of Warcraft’s next big update, Tides of Vengeance, is expected to drop soon with a new raid and warfront; this will be the first time that the Horde and Alliance will have unique versions. Heroes of the Storm is expanding with a wide variety of content, much of which is coming in 2019. A new character, Orphea which is not associated with other games, was introduced. Diablo immortal is available on mobile. Overwatch gained new characters, Ashe, confirmed as Hero 29, with Bob functioning as her Ultimate. Warcraft 3 was remastered. Blizzard confirmed plans to release a breakfast cereal based on Overwatch in partnership with Kellogg’s. It plays on a joke from the game itself and is called Lucio-Ohs.
“The Abyss”, released on Oct 29th, expands the game’s already vast but sometimes empty alien oceans, and also continues to flesh out No Man’s Sky’s growing horror elements.
Bethesda has scheduled Nov 3 and 4th for B.E.T.A. (Break-It-Early Testing Application). So far, reviews have been predominately positive.
