Halo Infinite’s first season of the Multiplayer Beta was officially released during the November 15 Xbox Anniversary live stream event.

Both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042 have arrived, which leaves only Halo Infinite – perhaps the most anticipated FPS launch of the year. While the campaign is definitely a draw for Halo players, it’s the new free-to-play multiplayer and its weapons and maps that determine how the game is received in the community.

After several technical flight tests, 343 Industries settled for a December 8 launch. While this is still true for the Campaign, 343 officially launched the first season of Multiplayer November 15.

The Shapeshifters promo last seen in FIFA 20 has made its way to FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team mode following the Team of the Season.

Ultimate Team Shapeshifters explained

The Shapeshifters promo is a fan favorite due to its unique tendency to have top players in unconventional positions. This promo takes players out of their standard position and allows you to build a squad with more options at your disposal.

This drastic change opens the door to new squad-building possibilities. These special cards received rating boosts, SM/WF upgrades, and position changes, which makes Shapeshifters a top-tier promo.

Throughout the Shapeshifters promo, players will be able to earn Summer Swaps Tokens that they can later exchange for valuable rewards. Summer Swaps Tokens rewards include Shapeshifters Kimpembe and several Shapeshifters player picks.

FIFA 22 Shapeshifters Team 1

FIFA 23 Serie A ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Serie A will bring some of the world’s best players to FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Serie A player rating predictions

New arrivals have made the Serie A an exciting league to keep an eye on in FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team. From Juventus to both divides of Milan, here are our predictions for the top Serie A ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

With each iteration of FIFA, EA updates player ratings based on their performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no exception. Seria A fans received a title race for the ages during the 2021/2022 season as both Milan sides looked to conquer Italy.

When it comes to Serie A player ratings in Ultimate Team, you can expect the top performers to receive major rating boosts. However, don’t forget that new transfers are making their way to Italy over the summer and some major stars cannot be overlooked.

Who will be the best players in the Serie A? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Serie A players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Kalidou KoulibalyNapoli86
Lautaro MartinezInter Milan+186
Paul PogbaJuventus-186
Sergej Milinkovic-SavicLazio+186
Mike MaignanA.C Milan+286

There are some incredible storylines that should make for some great Serie A Ultimate Team squads in FIFA 22. Superstars Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are returning to their former clubs after time in the Premier League.

Given how both of these players failed to meet expectations, their ratings are expected to drop in FIFA 23. While new faces will make their way to Serie A, some top players will be departing including Chiellini, Insigne, Kessie, and possibly more.

Fortunately, top performers from the previous season are ready to step in to fill the void in Ultimate Team. Mike Maignan won the goalkeeper of the year award last season so there’s no denying that he’s deserving of a rating increase.

Milan Skriniar was a brick wall for Inter Milan last season and will surely receive a rating increase whether he stays with Inter Milan or moves on to PSG as rumors suggest. Koulibaly is another that could depart Serie A, but if he stays at Napoli he’ll continue to be one of the best defenders in the league.

FIFA 23 Serie A rating predictions: Every team’s best players

The top 10 player ratings list is dominated by Italy’s elite, but the Serie A has some hidden gems across clubs outside of the top six.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes: Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg, bug fixes, more

Apex Legends has a brand-new 1.99 patch which brings bug fixes and new interactive Easter Egg for Lifeline’s Clinic.

Published

apex legends lifeline

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

apex legends lifeline's clinic olympus

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
