Gears of War Esports Pro Circuit to Wrap Up Season 2 in Boston

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

After 15 Pro Circuit events and a total prize pool of $3 million, the final Gears Pro Circuit event of Gears of War 4 is here. With $300,000 on the line, the top pro and amateur teams from around the world will gather in Boston on April 26-28 at the Hynes Convention Center to take home the trophy and bragging rights leading into the next season of Gears Esports, set to debut following the launch of Gears 5 later this year.

There is no shortage of storylines coming into this event. Perennial favorites OpTic Gaming are looking to claim their 13th Pro Circuit trophy and further prove why they should be considered the most successful esports team of all time. Team Reciprocity (formerly Denial) is looking to avenge a devastating loss in Mexico City where, despite sending OpTic Gaming to the losers bracket, they couldn’t secure the victory in the grand finals. Rise Nation is full of confidence as they are bringing their complete roster for the first time since they placed 2nd at the Columbus Invitational last fall. Ghost Gaming, the top ranked Latin American team, and Elevate, the top European team, both dominate their regions and want to prove they can compete with their North American counterparts.

In addition to the 5v5 Escalation action, there will be the Gears Pro Circuit 2v2 tournament where 128 top teams can compete for a dedicated prize pool of $20,000. The action kicks off on Saturday, April 27 with key 2v2 matches played on the feature stage. The 2v2 tournament is free to join and open to all attendees. Registration takes place at the venue from Saturday, April 27 from 1:00-3:00 PM EDT.

Watch all the action at http://live.gearsofwar.com starting at 2PM EDT on Friday, April 26 and then again on Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 AM EDT.

Get Over Here! Mortal Kombat 11 Available Now on Xbox One

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/MK11_02.jpg

Mortal Kombat 11 battles its way to Xbox One today culminating in nearly 25 years’ worth of lore, combat, and brutality. NetherRealm Studios (Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2) returns once again as the award-winning developer for Mortal Kombat 11, bringing with them decades of fighting game creation experience to this newest entry of this historic franchise.

All your favorite characters return like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Baraka, Sonya Blade, Raiden, in addition to new characters making their mark on the series, like Geras, a powerful and loyal servant of Kronika who can manipulate time. Each fighter also comes with her or his own unique abilities and series-signature fatalities to deliver perhaps the largest and most diverse cast of combatants in the game’s rich history.

And if these characters don’t happen to be to your liking, the robust and all-new character variation system gives you nearly infinite customization options. You’ll be able to change everything from skins to gear to special abilities as well as your intro, taunts, and brutalities – all of which can be unlocked through Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay.

Wrapping all of these features and fighters together is a new cinematic story mode that continues the events of Mortal Kombat X, featuring characters both past and present in a time-bending adventure that sets Raiden against Kronika, the Keeper of Time who created existence at the dawn of history.

Our team has made it even easier to find what you’re looking for in any Games & apps.

Fixes:

 

Audio

  • Fixes to background audio (BGM) to ensure that BGM and game audio sound fine mixed together with no audio snap/crackle or pop!

  • Fixes to address no console audio after system update for some users.
  • Fixes to the stability of spatial audio on system startup and shutdown.

My Games and Apps

  • Fixes to the sorting in My Games and Apps.
  • Games will now correctly show what DLC is installed under managed game as opposed to showing all installed!
  • Fixes to the stability of various Games.

System

  • Fixed the issue with Store Twist only loading the top slot content.
  • Fixes to video playback in the Mixer broadcast thumbnail.
  • Profile account picker UI fixes as users with multiple profiles could not select the top profile in the list.
  • Wi-Fi locked icon fix as it was displaying incorrectly.
  • Fixes to the system performance.
  • Localization fixes

 

Known Issues:

 

Audio

  • Headsets are not being assigned to the users profiles.
  • Some users are experiencing no audio with headsets and we are investigating
  • Some users are encountering no audio on their Xbox console after boot (no shell audio, no game audio, no app audio), then have CSS ask them to perform the following steps:

  2. Change their HDMI audio settings to the highest supported uncompressed channel count for their equipment
  3. Switch back to the desired format
