Old School RuneScape mobile reaches 5 million downloads

In a press release, Jagex said that the game in all of its incarnations hit its highest-ever paid membership and monthly active users. Thanks to the testing and launch of both mobile versions of the client, the paid subscriber count has crossed the one million mark. Additionally, Old School RuneScape Mobile has clocked over five million downloads since its launch last year. Altogether, the franchsise has made over a billion dollars since its debut 18 years ago.

Mobile edition of Old School RuneScape has been doing pretty great as well and it’s not like the latest milestone comes as much of a surprise. Namely, Jagex have already revealed that the game’s first two weeks on mobile saw the game exceeded one million downloads in eight different countries.

Old School RuneScape was released in October 2018 for Android and iOS devices. Phil Mansell, the CEO of Jagex, said: “2018 was a fantastic year for our RuneScape games, which have truly come of age. The franchise has been growing consistently for five years and we’ve seen a surge of further community growth with the move to mobile. If you want to know where to buy OSRS GP, z2u.com will be your best choice.

“Old School RuneScape’s successful mobile launch was made possible by our incredible team, who’ve been able to make this classic game play smoothly in a mobile form factor and which allows players to enjoy the convenience of completely interoperable PC to mobile cross-play.

Mansell is aware of that as well and he said, “We find that the more we listen to, engage with, and empower the community the more if fosters a true connection; with each other and with the games. The big increases we’re seeing in both membership and active users show that we’re not only able to bring new players into RuneScape but we’re able to offer the kind of rich, evergreen content that keeps them engaged for the long term.”

Amazon Games has officially launched Crucible

Amazon Games has officially launched Crucible, one of the two titles it’s been planning to release this year. The free-to-play third-person shooter is now available on Steam, and logging in before 11:59 PM PST on June 1st/2:59AM EST on June 2nd will earn players 1,000 in-game Credits for free.

Crucible has 10 hunters to choose from at launch, including robotic botanist Bugg (pictured above), who’s the game’s obvious poster child. Each hunter has their own weapons and abilities that they must use to defeat not just opponents, but also the planet’s flora and fauna.

Each character in Crucible has unique abilities and weapons that can be upgraded over the course of a match, modifying and enhancing their abilities as the game progresses. Unusually, those unlocks are pre-selected at the start of each game rather than on the fly, which in theory at least should enable you to more effectively plan and pursue your upgrade path. If you want to buy Crucible Accounts, we z2u.com can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.

The game has also launched with three game modes. “Heart of the Hives” is a 4 vs. 4 battle mode against giant boss Hives that spawn throughout the world, while the “Alpha Hunters” mode pits eight teams of two against each other. Finally, in “Harvester Command” mode, two teams of eight battle to capture and activate essence harvesters across the map.

For now, Crucible is in its eight-week pre-season, during which “players can learn the game, discover and build skill playing their favourite hunters, and begin honing their strategy before Season 1 kicks off”. A purchasable pre-season battle pass will let you complete challenges to unlock rewards, including cosmetics for characters and your account – just as any battle pass would.

Pirates & Pearls: A Treasure Matching Puzzle now available on iOS

How many puzzle or pirate-themed games have you played? We’re guessing not many but this ‘Pirates & Pearls: A Treasure Matching Puzzle’ could be a new favorite. As with most match-3 mobile games, this one can be addicting like that Family Guy Freakin Mobile Game, Angry Birds Match, and Homescapes. But most importantly, kids who love pirates will enjoy setting sail to finish each level.

Pirates & Pearls is a new puzzle game, developed internally and wholly owned by G5 Entertainment. It is G5’s fresh take on a popular “match 3” genre where players move and match gems on a board to solve a level. The game will become available on the Apple App Store worldwide on 29 August and will support both iPads and iPhones from the beginning, as well as portrait and landscape play modes.

Match gems and plunder your way through hundreds of puzzle matching levels filled with precious loot in G5 Games’ new Match-3 genre game Pirates & Pearls: A Treasure Matching Puzzle, now available on iOS.

Pirates & Pearls is an interesting take on the Bejeweled genre. Is it a life changer? Does it rock the match 3 world? No. It does bring charm and fun back to a genre that is lacking both. It also brings a little bit of adventuring to the proceedings with the quest system that G5 Entertainment have implemented.

Hotel Dash puts the well-known characters of Quinn and Flo into an all new hotel setting

PlayFirst has announced the upcoming launch of Hotel Dash: Suite Success, the latest addition to the company’s Dash series of time management games. Hotel Dash will feature Flo and Quinn (the stars of PlayFirst’s Diner Dash and Wedding Dash series’, respectively), as they embark on a new business venture as the managers of a chain of themed hotels.

Starting with a ramshackle hotel in DinerTown, players help Flo launch Quinn’s new travel business by running themed hotels, managing the flow of new and familiar guests, and fulfilling their unique needs and requests in order to earn tips to refurbish hotels.

The gameplay sends players up and down the elevator with the goal of keeping everything in order so customers remain happy. Tasks include delivering luggage, handing off fresh towels and providing room service, while attending to room mishaps and customer whims.  Players must travel from top floors to the lobby via the hotel elevators, ensuring smooth hotel operations and collecting tips upon checkout. Juggling customer demands with logistics and an ever-ticking clock, players must be strategic in organizing their time versus customers’ patience and personalities. If you are in lack of Hotel Dash Money, visit our site z2u.com, a reliable and cheap online in-game currency store.

As the game progresses, players can manage customer temperament by delivering mood-brightening extras, like floral arrangement and gift baskets. With their earnings, players can then upgrade the rooms and common areas of the hotel, fully renovating them and expanding Quinn’s new business. As the business succeeds, Quinn and Flo will tackle additional hotels, with themes ranging from ski retreat to city getaway, taking on new challenges and challenging new guest types.

“Hotels are funny and romantic, and all about customer service,” said Kenny Shea Dinkin, Chief Creative Officer at PlayFirst. “With Hotel Dash: Suite Success, we’ve introduced a new vertical, timing element to the Diner Dash series, set against an exciting and spoofy hotel-culture backdrop. So with its set of new, quirky and demanding DinerTown guests (sleepwalkers, anyone?) Hotel Dash has players strategically maneuvering to help the clientele across multiple floors of five hilarious hotels.”

Bladebound is a hack ‘n slash RPG completely developed for the touch interface

Game developers Arftifex Mundi aren’t known for putting out action RPGs – they’re more comfortable in the mystery adventure genre, and in that they’ve done a number of good ones. But surprisingly, Bladebound is an enjoyable RPG, pointing back to original hack ‘n slash hits such as Diablo and Torchlight on PC.

Bladebound is a hack ‘n slash RPG completely developed for the touch interface. In that sense, you will not find your usual onscreen D-pad here – everything is touch-based, and you move your character through tapping and go through battles using gestures and onscreen skill buttons. You might not like this interface, but we assure you that Bladebound will not irritate you this way.

Bladebound is a fairly typical hack and slash gameplay wise, but the pacing is something entirely different – it is intensely fast and quick flowing, though not at all overwhelming. Enemies are frequently appearing or jumping out of the sky to be swung at, but the interesting thing is that it’s never particularly frustrating. You can destroy most individual enemies with a single hit, leaving the slightly larger ones needing a little bit more smacking to finally put down.This excellent pacing keeps the gameplay constantly enjoyable, making Bladebound a game that never stops being exciting. Buy cheap Bladebound Gems via reputable seller z2u.com, cheap, safe, no ban and no hack happened!

Another surprising element of Bladebound is the cinematics that progresses the story. They are remarkably detailed and attractive considering the limited budget and physics of an isometric 3d action game.

The polygons might look a little dated in some points, but the depth and complexity of the animations, as well as the decent enough dialogue and story, leave the player frankly in awe of how far we’ve come in the game development world.

Ubisoft has delayed the launch of For Honor Year 4 Season 2

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the many teams now going near-entirely work-from-home in response, presents an interesting challenge for those working on live games like Ubisoft’s For Honor.

In the case of that particular team, Ubisoft says that developers were able to quickly adapt to their new remote roles and are working to keep things running as usual for For Honor’s online battles. But even a quick adjustment can’t stave off delays. In this case, Ubisoft says that the initial disruption of the sudden work-from-home shift has had some effects on how it’ll be able to deliver content in the near-term, including the launch of this year’s second season.

As announced in a site update, disruption in recent weeks has impacted the team’s ability to get updates ready for the launch of a new season. As a result, it will not commence until June 11th. Currently, the team behind the game is working remotely, as are a lot of companies during this pandemic. If you want to buy For Honor Steel Credits, we z2u.com can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.

The delay comes largely as a result of Ubisoft shifting to a remote work scheme as a result of the ongoing pandemic. While some game devs have managed to adjust just fine, others have clearly had some unexpected difficulties.

Although we’ll see For Honor Year 4 Season 2 delayed, it’s not all bad news; Ubisoft is going to be making it up to its fans. They’re working on a plan to “bring back fan-favorite activities” which should keep you occupied during this disappointing time. They’ll be targeting a release sometime in May.

Call Of Duty: Warzone Console Players Turning off Crossplay to Avoid PC Cheaters

Call of Duty has a major problem with cheating and console players are suffering too with their cross-play functionality.According to Infinity Ward, the developers behind Call of Duty, at least 70,000 people have already been banned from Call of Duty: Warzone for using aimbots and other cheating tools.

There will always be cheaters in multiplayer games online but it’s never really been a problem on the PlayStation because of the lengths you’d have to go to enabling cheating software.Standard Modern Warfare multiplayer of course has a problem with this, but even the battle royale mode for the online Call of Duty game is suffering.Infinity Ward has acknowledged the cheating and said: “We are watching. We have zero-tolerance for cheaters”.

Cheating has been a real issue in Modern Warfare and Warzone. The latter has been an especially difficult game to police for developer Infinity Ward because it’s free-to-play and those who insist on playing deviously have much less to lose if they’re caught and banned. If you need Buy Call of Duty CP Coins, you can visit our site 5mmo.com.

As Eurogamer observes, on the PS4, it took a few minutes to get into a Warzone lobby with crossplay disabled, compared to about 30 seconds with the feature turned on. That’s quite a difference, and in fact, on the PlayStation, if matchmaking is slow the game will actually prompt you to turn on crossplay to more speedily find a lobby.

Since crossplay means console players will be more likely to run into this kind of player, the only viable option for many seems to be to disable the feature until a more reliable solution comes along. Clearly this isn’t something the vast majority of players want to have to do, as being able to play with mates who might not own the same platform as you is kind of the whole point of crossplay.

How to catch Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Freshwater Goby

Fishing is one of the primary pastimes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and living on an island presents many opportunities to catch a wide range of fish, from freshwater fish in your island’s rivers and ponds, to ocean fish and other sea creatures from the vast blue sea. Fish can be sold, handed into the museum, given as gifts to villagers, and even displayed in aquariums in your home. What you do with them is up to you.

To start, the Freshwater Goby in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not exceedingly rare, as it is available in both the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere year round. That said, fans should know that it spawns only between the hours of 4pm and 9am, and players that are on the hunt for ACNH’s Freshwater Goby should plan their fishing excursions accordingly.

Additionally, fans should make sure that they are fishing in the correct locations, as Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Freshwater Goby only appears in rivers. In these waterways the fish appears as a small shadow, and ACNH players that catch all of the small shadows that they see will eventually bag themselves a Freshwater Goby. By the way, you can buy Cheap Animal Crossing New Horizons Nook Miles Tickets from 5mmo.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “5MMO”.

It is worth mentioning that players can use fish bait in New Horizons to speed up the process of catching a Freshwater Goby. Indeed, every time fish bait is thrown into a body of water a new fish will spawn, and players can continually throw the craftable item into rivers to get a steady stream of small shadow fish. While not every small shadow that fans catch will be a Freshwater Goby, it should not take too long for one to appear.

To summarize, players can find a Freshwater Goby in New Horizons from 4pm to 9am at any point during the year. These fish appear in rivers as small shadows, and fans can use fish bait to gain access to many fish of this size. All it takes from there is a bit of patience, and once a player catches a Freshwater Goby, they can then donate it or sell it at Nook’s Cranny for 400 Bells.

Tons of new things are happening in Animal Crossing: New Horizons this month

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was already providing us with a ray of sunshine in gloomy times, and there’s yet more good news on the way, as the game is getting two free events next month.

First, a couple of events are scheduled to occur for April in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The first event, which is called Bunny Day, was already commenced a couple of days ago, and the other, which will celebrate Earth Day, is set to occur sometime this month.

Bunny Day – A new event to celebrate Easter in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As previously mentioned, the event is already live in the game until April 12, via a new update that brought the adorable yet slightly creepy Zipper T. Bunny as a visiting character who will also serve as Bunny Day’s host. Throughout the event, players  will find literal Easter Eggs scattered across the island, which they need to obtain DIY recipes that will only be available during Bunny Day. If you need Buy Animal Crossing New Horizons Nook Miles Tickets, you can visit our site z2u.com.

Bunny Day runs only between 1 April and 12 April, after which you’ll have to wait until next year to see Zipper and his eggs again.The second event is themed around Earth Day, which in previous games has been referred to as Nature Day.No specific date was given for the event, but the real Earth Day is 22 April, so it’s obviously going to be sometime around then.

Although Animal Crossing: New Horizons won’t pressure players to talk to villagers, continuously ignoring them will result in them leaving the island. Apart from talking to them on a daily basis, players should also be aware of each villager’s birthday so they can attend their parties and even give them gifts on their special day. Of course, if the player is not to keen on a certain villager, they can always select them to leave the village, but ignoring them completely will do the trick.

3M will boost U.S. production of its N95 respirator masks to 50 million per month by June

3M Co. said Tuesday it will boost U.S. production of its N95 respirator masks to 50 million per month by June, the latest ramp-up in manufacturing of one of the most important pieces of coronavirus-fighting protective gear.

Maplewood, Minn.-based 3M (NYSE: MMM), one of the world’s largest makers of the N95 filter masks, has steadily boosted its production capacity in recent months as demand for the masks has exploded. Health systems around the country are facing shortages of the masks, which are largely made abroad — often in countries facing their own coronavirus outbreaks.

Just a week ago, 3M said it was “operating at maximum production” for the mask, turning out more than 100 million of them per month — 35 million of those in the United States. But it pledged to bring more production online and double output again, to 2.2 billion masks per year, in the next 12 months. If you need Buy the Surgical Mask, you can visit our site z2u.com.

At least some of that production increase is coming in the United States. Making 50 million masks per month represents a 40 percent increase over current levels.In a statement, CEO Mike Roman said that 80 percent of the U.S. N95 supply is going to health care customers (the N95 masks are also used in food production, pharmaceuticals and energy sectors) and that 80 percent of the masks destined for health care are being shipped through 3M’s existing distributors; the rest are being sent to the federal government for distribution.

Even with the new production, Roman said that “the reality is that demand for N95 respirators is much higher than the industry’s ability to deliver.” So 3M is working with undisclosed sterilization companies to find a way to safely clean and reuse existing masks — something many hospitals are trying on an ad-hoc basis to stretch their existing supplies.
