Good afternoon! We got plenty of exciting news this week. Infinity Ward released A LOT of information around their multiplayer and Warzone game modes and we give the initial breakdown in this newsletter. Blizzard also released their rollout plan for Overwatch 2 and then Sony has a massive Steam sale right now. Let’s get into it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II just released trailers for both the multiplayer and Warzone 2.0 game modes. Releasing on November 16th on console and PC, this “revamped” version of Warzone is set in the fictional map of Al Mazrah and will contain multiple circles, creating more pressure zones for teams to escape from. Built upon the same engine as Modern Warfare II, can this battle royale sequel live up to its predecessor or will it fall flat with the rest of the battle royale category? For a more detailed look, check out the Modern Warfare II Multiplayer and Warzone 2.0 Trailer on YouTube.

Overwatch 1 Servers Shut Down October 2nd

For those of you following the Overwatch updates and news, it's been rather interesting these past few months. Overwatch 2 is ever so close with its Oct 4th release date and Overwatch 1 will now be a shadow in its footsteps. Blizzard announced Overwatch 1 servers will be offline on Sunday, October 2nd which will officially be the last day of Overwatch 1. The shutdown will follow with a 27-hour downtime to get the Overwatch 2 servers up and running. Players will then be given the chance to preload OW 2 before its official launch and prepare for what's to come. Once Overwatch 2 hits the store, Overwatch 1 players will be brought to an update page to update their game to Overwatch 2. As much as we've been waiting for a new game, it seems rather more like Overwatch 2 will just be a large update. Hopefully the game remains true to its heat and gives us some great new content.
