Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few will be delayed until Summer of this year. Guillaume Provost and Sam Abbot of the studio took to YouTube to release an update video. The game, which has been in Early Access since 2016 will be taking a couple extra months to improve the story experience upon the full release.
Indicated by the video, We Happy Few seems to be restructuring the tone of the game. As players of the Early Access have been able to voice their comments and concerns to Compulsion Games. The video caps off with footage from the eyes of the second character; Sally.
Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII’s next community event; ‘The Resistance’ has been detailed. Before the first DLC pack launches January 30th, a free community event will begin for all players.
The month-long event begins January 23rd and will last until February 27th. The timed event will add new skins for weapons, gear and 2x XP playlists.
Most notably, a Prop Hunt mode will launch during the event. Based on the popular Garry’s Mod, players will disguise themselves as assets from the game in the hide-and-seek game variant.
Félix “xQc” Lengyel from Dallas Fuel has been suspended from competing in the Overwatch League until February 10th. Following the 4-0 Houston Outlaws win over Dallas Fuel, Lengyel took to his stream to voice his thoughts. Lengyel directed some unpleasant words to Outlaws player; Austin Wilmot.
Blizzard later announced they would be suspending Lengyel for the next four matches and be doling out a $2000 fine. Dallas Fuel will be extending the suspension for the remainder of Stage 1. During that time, Fuel will be offering resources and additional coaching.
Dallas Fuel released an official statement on the matter.
