Rogue Company Season 1 is on its way, bringing with it a new rogue, Battle Pass, new map, and more content to look forward to.

Rogue Company made a splash with its closed beta release in 2020. Streamers were enjoying the third-person tactical shooter and fans were lining up to join the fight.

Since then, Hi-Rez has been steadily adding content to the game in the form of new maps, rogues, and cosmetics – most notably, the Dr. Disrespect crossover that remains in the shop to this day.

Fans of the game had been waiting for the start of a new season, with ranked coming out of beta and the promise of a Battle Pass. On January 7, we finally heard some concrete news about all of this and more.

Rogue Company Season 1

Hi-Rez released a developer update for all of their major games on January 7, with some of the biggest news coming to Rogue Company fans. According to the developers, Rogue Company has four seasons planned for 2021, with the first one coming this February.

This new season will feature a new game mode, map, rogue, and competitive reset as it comes out of the beta phase.

2v2 Wingman

The 2v2 Wingman mode will be coming to Rogue ahead of the start of Season 1. This mode will feature new, smaller maps that cater more towards smaller team sizes.

We don’t have a ton of new information about how this mode will work, but we’ll know soon enough when it releases next week.

New rogue: Kestrel

Kestral will be the next rogue to enter the lineup. She’s a fashion icon from India with abilities that focus on drones and explosives.

We’ll learn more about the next Rogue Company character ahead of Season 1. For now, all we have is a backstory and general overview of her kit.

New Map: The Hollows

The Hollows is “the first of many maps” that Hi-Rez is working on for 2021. The map will be included in the normal game modes along with an exclusive LTM.

Like the new Rogue, we should learn more about The Hollows as Season 1 approaches.

Rogue Company Season 1 Battle Pass

Ever since Fortnite took the world by storm, developers have been favoring Battle Passes as a way to offer players cosmetics. Rogue Company is no different, with a Battle Pass releasing at the start of Season 1.

The Battle Pass will offer sprays, emotes, wraps, and skins for different rogues as you progress through the tiers. Like most other games, players will be able to unlock free rewards along with premium paid rewards in the Battle Pass.

Rogue Company is also revamping the competitive system and introducing tiers to the game. The Season 1 launch follows the pre-season beta program that was widely successful for the competitive player base.

We’ll keep you posted on all of the latest Rogue Company news as Season 1 draws closer.

Fortnite flipping screens glitch

Several Fortnite players are being plagued by an absolutely bizarre glitch that’s flipping their screens sideways, and making things more difficult in the middle of their games.

You’ll find plenty that can surprise you the next time to jump into a match of Fortnite, as Epic Games are always introducing new content. This ranges from crossover skins with other franchises like Predator, to tamable Raptors.

However, fans usually only enjoy surprises when they don’t include horrible technical glitches that ruin the game Now, a new one has emerged which is flipping player’s screens horizontally, and it’s particularly frustrating.

Fortnite glitch is flipping players’ screens

Reddit user powerGladius posted a clip showcasing their encounter with this glitch in the middle of a match. They were just enjoying the game, and then the screen spontaneously flipped and locked sideways.

While this may seem amusing initially, it soon became clear that it would keep happening even when they tried to join other games. It’s far less fun to play Fortnite when you need to constantly keep your neck on your shoulders.

The comments were filled to the brim with other players that had also encountered this issue, and they were demanding that Epic Games issue a fix for this issue.

Even pro players like Thiago ‘K1nG’ Lapp of FaZe Clan Brazil and ‘Snow’ from Falcons Gaming have vented about their experience with this glitch. This means that this issue is widespread, and can happen to any player.

There is no doubt that Epic Games will end up investigating this issue, and then coming up with a permanent fix for it. However, they’ve not acknowledged it at the time of writing, so they might not know about it yet.

We’ll keep checking for any updates regarding this situation. Once the devs announce a proper fix for the bug, we’ll be sure to update you.

Battlefield 6 may not release on PS4 & Xbox One

PS4 and Xbox One owners may be disappointed to hear rumors that the latest Battlefield 6 will potentially be exclusive to the new generation of consoles.

Battlefield 6 not releasing on ps4 Xbox one

Battlefield fans who are yet to pick up a next-generation console may be disappointed as leaker reveals the developers are considering scrapping release on PS4 & Xbox One as a whole.

Both the PS4 and Xbox One have been difficult to purchase since their respective releases last year. This may be even more devastating for those looking to pick up Battlefield 6 on their last-gen consoles.

Battlefield 6 is set to release this year, with the reveal trailer arriving sometime this summer. Not a lot is known about EA’s latest installment in the series, with some speculating it could be set in the future.

Although there is no concrete evidence, reliable leaker, @_Tom_Henderson_, has not yet heard of Battlefield 6 coming to the now past generation of consoles.

It is possible that PS4 and Xbox One aren’t the focus of EA’s new release, but could still be arriving on the last-gen of consoles upon release.

However, the fact that there has been no news and we are getting ever closer to the reveal and release, leads Tom to believe there is a strong possibility that it won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.

Further, this also leads Tom to believe Battlefield 6 will be releasing on Xbox Game Pass. The loss of players from the older generation of consoles will be a big hit to the day one player count.

However, this loss can be balanced by being introduced on the Xbox Game Pass, leading to a wave of new players on the Xbox Series X.

Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that if you are still in need of the next generation of consoles, you should try your best to get one as soon as possible, especially if you’re a fan of the Battlefield series.

Big map changes and Crypto event details revealed Apex Legends Season 9 leak

Some new Apex Legends leaks point to Olympus going through big changes in Season 9, and Crypto’s heirloom event having a special theme.

New changes planned for Olympus in Apex

A new Apex Legends leak has emerged which hints at some major map changes for Olympus and World’s Edge when Season 9 goes live. It also reveals new details about the Crypto heirloom event too. 

Apex Legends has gone through various changes since launch, with each update bringing new content like weapons, heirlooms, and even Legends. The game’s map has also been reformed with new areas like Olympus joining the battle royale.

While Kings Canyon and World’s Edge have been largely altered from their original forms, Olympus has yet to be touched. Now, some new leaks have popped up which suggest that’s all about to change soon.

Olympus in Apex Legends

These leaks came from notable Apex Legends data miner Biast12, who stated that World’s Edge is set to undergo some small adjustments during Season 9, with a major map change also planned for Olympus.

“Olympus should get the “big map change” at season start,” he tweeted. “World’s Edge should get a small map change mid-season.” So far, it doesn’t seem like anything is planned for Kings Canyon but that could change.

Season 8 completely reformed that map, and left it in a ruined state. So, it’s likely that Respawn might plan some bigger changes for it in future seasons. 

Additionally, the data miner also had revealed some new information regarding the upcoming Crypto heirloom event. The season three legend is getting a Jikdo sword as an heirloom, and the event will have a “post-apocalypse” theme.

That event will probably also bring some brand-new skins and other cosmetics for players to equip. With a potential “post-apocalypse” theme, we wouldn’t be too surprised if we ended up seeing some creative new designs.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and are subject to change until Respawn announces something official. That said, we’ll keep checking for further updates, and will inform you once we learn something new.
