    Overwatch 2 Suffering from DDoS Attacks on Launch Day

    Blizzard and server issues with a new game launch, name a more iconic duo.

    Overwatch 2 technically launched today, and you may be inclined to believe that were you able to actually get into the game. Unfortunately for most people not in a special priority queue, you have been met with long login wait times or just no response from the server at all.

    According to Blizzard president Mike Ybarra, the Overwatch 2 servers have been hit with "a mass DDoS attack." According...

  • Overwatch 2 Framerate Cap Upped to 600 FPS

    Overwatch 2 Framerate Cap Upped to 600 FPS

    This is all due to the power of the upcoming RTX 4090.

    When Overwatch 2 comes out, you will be able to run it at 600 FPS if you want (and can). This is apparently thanks to Nvidia teaming up with Blizzard on Nvidia Reflex support for Overwatch 2, which subsequently allowed the studios to increase the cap. The two companies are taking that slow and pathetic 400 FPS cap from the first Overwatch and cranking it up another 200 FPS.

    Nvidia confirmed that framerates of over...

    Over 40 Minutes of Diablo 4 Test Footage Leaked Online

    It was a busy weekend for game leaks.

    Grand Theft Auto 6 wasn't the only major game to have footage leaked this past weekend. A few hours after the massive GTA 6 first leaked came over 40 minutes of Diablo 4 test footage. The footage gives those that have seen it a decent idea of what to expect with Blizzard's upcoming ARPG.

    The Diablo 4 footage was first spotted by Reddit user iV1rus0 and was posted to r/GamingLeaksAndRumours. The Diablo 4 footage comes in the form of...

    Diablo 4 Ditches Loot Boxes for Battle Passes

    Your money has no power here.

    Blizzard says that instead of any sort of loot box mechanics in Diablo 4, they will instead embrace the Season Pass system. This makes a lot of sense seeing as how Blizzard also announced the removal of loot boxes from Overwatch and Overwatch 2 earlier this month.

    Blizzard made this announcement as part of its latest development update. They also confirmed that Diablo 4 will be a full-priced title, so while you are free to spend money on cosmetics...

    Blizzard to Halt Overwatch Loot Box Sales this Month

    The end of a (crappy) era.

    We already knew that Blizzard was doing away with paid loot boxes when Overwatch 2 launches in October, but we did not know until today when they would stop selling loot boxes in the original Overwatch. A new update from Blizzard says that they will finally sunset the sale of paid loot boxes on August 30.

    Ahead of that date, Blizzard is doing one last hurrah with an Anniversary Remix event. The event, which began today, will give you about three...

    Blizzard to Potentially Sell Overwatch Skins for $45

    So long loot boxes, hello overpriced microtransactions.

    When Overwatch 2 launches later this year, the loot boxes we have all come to know and hate will be no more. Replacing the RNG-filled boxes will be seasonal Battle Passes and apparently some optional cosmetic microtransactions that will allow you to, presumably, buy the skins you want without delay.

    This all sounds super great, until you hear that Blizzard recently sent out a survey that seems to suggest they are...

    Diablo Immortal Pulls in $49 Million in First Month

    The game has also been downloaded over 10 million times.

    On June 20, we learned not only that Diablo Immortal's release in China was delayed, but also that the game already pulled in $24 million (USD) through microtransactions. That's how much the game made just in its first two weeks of availability. At the time, I guessed that Diablo Immortal would pull in about $50 million over the course of an entire month.

    Now, Mobilegamer.biz reports (on data collected by Appmagi...

    Diablo Immortal's Release is Delayed in China

    This comes right after Blizzard's Chinese social media account was banned.
