You'd think something so basic would've been caught by epic's dev team, but I guess this one somehow slipped through. Ok so if I need to do challenge 5 in a level 40, it's annoying enough if underleveled kids come to participate, right? Well that's understandable since that's how STW always is.

But if one of those kids selects challenge 1-4, I have no reason to stay in the match. Not when i'd be busting my ass carrying kids and not even progressing my quest. So I leave and look again. Oh and about quitting. Seems to me that once someone quits in this mode, their spot isn't filled. ever.

So you have valid reasons why some people will quit and now people who don't quit never get backup. Happened to me doing a challenge 5 before. 2 guys quit at random right after wave 1. me and the other guy could handle it, but it turned horde into an even more grueling task than normal.

Rob Pitt writes: Railway Empire came out on current consoles back in January this year. Since then we have had numerous patches and improvements but very little in terms of new content. However, Developer Gaming Mind Studios has not only released a roadmap of what to expect in the near future, but they have also released their first DLC pack Mexico! Kalypso was kind enough to provide me with a copy of the DLC to take a look at, so Ive been playing it on and off the last few weeks as I re-learnt the gameplay mechanics and got back into the swing of things. I guess the question is, is it worth the £6.99 / 7.99 / $ 7.99 price tag?

After announcing an exclusive game streaming program in January this year, Facebook has now launched its very own answer to Twitch and other popular game streaming services.

The new hub is dubbed FB.GG and will act as a homepage for all the game streaming content found on the social media platform. It’ll also be home to what Facebook is calling its “gaming creators” – gamers that the social giant has paid to exclusively stream on its platform.

While the creator program has been in action for almost half a year, this new hub is designed to quickly and simply aggregate all gaming videos and live feeds, and Facebook also has future plans to add curated content such as game-related news and events.

Go with the flow

Facebook will be showcasing its efforts of community-building alongside some of its very own gaming creators at this year's E3 convention in Los Angeles under the new banner of Facebook Gaming.

With the exponential rise in popularity of services such as Twitch, which has seen close to half a million concurrent viewers tuning in to a single livestream, it’s unsurprising that Facebook wants to capitalise on the medium’s success.

With the infrastructure for live video already in place, and the userbase well and truly established, will Facebook be able to take the throne from Twitch, or will the streamers and viewers remain loyal?

E3 2018 is just around the corner, which means that E3 2018 rumors, leaks, and speculation have arrived in full force. Like any pre-E3, the road here has been filled with a lot of brief, official announcements of games like Fallout 76, The Division 2, and Super Smash Bros. for Switch that will be shown in more detail at E3.

Like any pre-E3, there have been a whole lot of unofficial leaks and rumors. Some of these have since been confirmed (see Rage 2, Hitman 2, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey). Here are some of the rumors floating around that haven’t been confirmed, alongside speculation of the likelihood that we’ll see them come to fruition at E3 2018. And after you’re done, check out our full list of every game confirmed for E3 2018.
