How to play the Back 4 Blood Alpha

The Back 4 Blood Alpha will be available for players on December 17. Here’s how to register for the Alpha.

Published

Turtle Rock’s spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead is coming to PC players early for an alpha test.

The Back 4 Blood Alpha releases at 1 PM EST on December 17 and runs until December 21.

This alpha test is an early peek for what’s to come when the game releases on June 22, 2021. It’s exclusive to the PC platform and will be played on the Steam launcher.

How To Get Into The Alpha

To get into the Alpha, you’ll need to first be in a supported region. The alpha is restricted to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, and Germany. If you are in a supported region, you can go to the Back 4 Blood Alpha registration page and sign up with your email to get a chance to hop into the alpha.

If you do get in, you’ll have to make a Warner Bros Games account and redeem your alpha key on the website.

Once you’ve redeemed your code, the website will generate another code to use on your Steam account to download the alpha. You can also invite 2 other friends to the alpha to play.

What Content Will Be Available in The Alpha?

In a video from Turtle Rock, some of the content in the Alpha was revealed. The Alpha will feature the “game director,” a tool used to make playthroughs of the game unique each time. Zombie spawns, ammo, and loot will be different in each game.

One mission will be available for play, with a max of 4 players (called cleaners). The Alpha will have four cleaners available to play, all with unique perks and secondary weapons. The cleaners available are Walker, Holly, Avangelo, and Hoffman.

You will fight as these cleaners against a small portion of the game’s enemies, the Riven. The Riven available in this build are the Common Infected, Stinger, Retch, Tall Boy, and Ogre.

Additionally, there will be a card system tested in this build that works with the game director. Players will be able to play their own cards for extra boosts against the director’s “corruption cards” that make the game more difficult to play.

Corruption cards can spawn more enemies, add fog, or even make ammo drops more scarce. Cleaner cards add team-based or individual benefits.

Epic Games have added the Victory Crown in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including what it does and how to get it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 has brought a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man. There are also new items like Spidey’s Web-Shooters.

Another new feature is the Victory Crown, and players who hold this item will gain some extremely useful benefits. In case you’re wondering what it does and how to get it, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Victory Crown.

What is the Victory Crown in Fortnite?

As the name implies, the Victory Crown can be worn on your head when you’re on Fortnite Island. It is a new feature that provides its wearers with some neat rewards that will make it highly sought-after.

If you’ve got the Victory Crown then you’ll receive bonus XP during the match while wearing it. If you win a game while you have it on then you’ll get an altered Victory Royale screen where a Crown is added on top of the text.

You will also get an exclusive emote that shows you the amount of Crowned Victory Royales that you earn when playing Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. So, wearing the Victory Crown definitely has its advantages.

Victory Crowns will automatically be awarded to the top few players in a game. You can get it when playing Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads, but you’ll need to play extremely well to succeed.

Once you’ve got one, you’ll start your next match wearing the Victory Crown. This is risky because it makes you a target for other players that will attempt to eliminate you and steal it for themselves.

You’ll need to fight to defend the Crown from enemies, so there is a great degree of risk associated with it. If you wish to avoid that, then you can simply drop the Victory Crown item.

Battlefield 2042 devs finally respond to game-breaking invisibility glitch

The Battlefield 2042 developers have responded to a game-breaking glitch that’s causing players to become invisible.

An extremely irritating Battlefield 2042 glitch is causing players to spawn in the game completely invisible. Thankfully, developers DICE have confirmed a fix for this game-breaking problem.

You’ll find no shortage of fun content in Battlefield 2042, like Portal which lets you create your own game modes. However, there are also major glitches like the one that can cause your mouse to get stuck on PC.

Another bug that has been plaguing the game is one that causes players to spawn into a match completely invisible. This caught the attention of the developers who have now promised a fix for it.

Reddit user ‘sterrre’ showcased this bug in a short clip that they posted in the Battlefield 2042 subreddit. “I spawned invisible when trying to spawn on a friendly MAV,” wrote the Redditor.

While they had no plans to use this exploit to their advantage, other players might not show such restraint. It makes it impossible for enemies to see you, which makes the game feel unbalanced.

After the Redditor reported this bug, Kevin Johnson, DICE’s Community Manager, responded to the issue. He said: “Hi! This should be fixed once we deploy our next update, Update 3.1. Thanks for reaching out.”

At the time of writing, we don’t know when exactly this update will release. Since Update #3 arrived on December 2, we expect the developers to release Update 3.1 in the near future.

This bug seems to be caused by spawning on a vehicle. “If you spawn on a vehicle and all the seats fill up while deploying it’ll spawn the player invisible outside of the vehicle,” theorized one user.

Hopefully, the next major update patch will sort out this issue along with many of the glaring problems being faced by Battlefield 2042 players since the game’s launch. Once it arrives, we’ll be sure to let you know.

There are plenty of exciting additions in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. You can progress through a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as The Foundation.

Here’s how you can get the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters.

While Spider-Man has arrived in Fortnite, Epic Games scheduled the release of his Mythic Web-Shooters for December 11 at 10 AM ET. However, some players have purchased them early from an NPC.

Here’s how you can get them:

  1. Hop into Fortnite Chapter 3
  2. Head over to Greasy Grove
  3. Talk to an NPC named Guaco
  4. Select the option to purchase the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters
  5. Confirm the purchase

These will cost you 400 Gold Bars, so we recommend saving up that amount by completing Quests and challenges on the Island. You can also check out our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Currently, it’s not clear why the Web-Shooters are available ahead of schedule or for how long they will remain in the game. That’s why we recommend you go purchase them as soon as you can.

While it’s fun to swing around as Spider-Man, you can still use the Web-Shooters when playing with any outfit. They serve as a great way for you to get around Fortnite’s island quickly and stylishly.

Epic Games have confirmed that as Chapter 3 progresses, we’ll see the addition of more Spider-Men along with a few friends and foes in the Item Shop. So, there will be a ton of fun Spidey content for fans to enjoy.
