Popular streamer Dr Disrespect has weighed in on the Halo Infinite Battle Royale mode rumors with some “inside information.”

There has been mass speculation about a potential battle royale mode in the highly-anticipated Halo Infinite, and popular streamer Dr Disrespect claims to have “inside information” about it. 

Halo Infinite is one of the most anticipated games of 2021, as fans keep checking for any news ahead of its December 8 launch. One of the biggest rumors surrounding the game is that it will feature a Battle Royale mode.

This has previously been hinted at through some leaked audio files. Now, popular streamer Dr Disrespect has added fuel to this rumor with some “inside information” about an upcoming Battle Royale mode.

The Doc was in a stream with Z_Laner playing Warzone. While talking about Battle Royales, he made the claim that he was ‘in the know’ regarding an upcoming announcement.

“From what I’ve heard, 300 players, set loop, power weapons on the map, the map designed around the power weapons and locations and points of interest,” said Dr Disrespect.

He claimed that this was all inside information that he had received, and he expects it to feel “really good, supposedly, super optimized.”

The Doc stated that it was a technical Alpha test for a future Battle Royale, and he was very impressed with what he saw. The mention of “power weapons” is a strong hint that 343 Industries might be working on that mode for Halo Infinite.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that the streamer tends to joke a lot, so he could just be saying all of this out of jest. So, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt until we get some official confirmation from the devs.

Hopefully, we’ll see a battle royale mode when the game finally releases. For more Halo, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out our guide on how to sign up and play the Halo Infinite multiplayer preview beta.

GTA V and Elden Ring could come to mobile with Xbox Cloud Gaming

Xbox Cloud Gaming could see both GTA V and Elden Ring come to mobile, as reports claim that plans are underway.

Published

Reports are claiming that both GTA V and Elden Ring could be seen on mobile, as Xbox ramps up their Cloud Gaming plans.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is a new service from Microsoft which will allow players to enjoy their library of games on various devices including mobile versions.

The idea is to allow Xbox Game Pass Ultimate owners to play their favorite games on devices other than an Xbox console. This can be done on either the Xbox Game Pass app or Xbox.com, and they have already announced that players will have access to “over 100 console games.”

To the community’s surprise, rumors are suggesting that both Elden Ring and GTA V could be part of the scheme, which would mean that both games will be available on mobile for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

According to Knoebelbroet, Xbox is “ramping up their plans to bring Games that are not part of the #XboxGamePass to Xcloud,” claiming that games “like GTA V, Soul Hackers 2, and Elden Ring” could be a part of that plan.

The Tweet also contains an image of both Elden Ring and Soul Hackers 2 on the Xbox Cloud Gaming website, but the Twitter user advises that the community should take this “with a grain of salt.”

It would be pretty big to see games like Elden Ring and GTA V on mobile, as these games are some of the most popular around. We saw Apex Legends take to mobile in 2022, so perhaps there’s more to come for mobile gamers.

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update

With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.

Published

on

Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings some exciting new content to the game after the battle royale saw a slight dip in popularity towards the end of last season.

Luckily for Respawn, the brand-new Legend Vantage, overhauled Kings Canyon map, and huge Level Cap increase has been a massive hit with the fans, despite players finding bugs and glitches.

The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.

As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.

Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.

Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.

As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.
