Hello and good afternoon! Welcome to our weekly news blog, where we go over all the happenings and stuff that we notice throughout the week. First, let’s start off with the usual.

Now, a new world generation is inserted under existing chunks when upgrading a world to the new world height. An Online options screen has been added where you can find the Realms Notification option and Difficulty when on a server. Also, an Allow Server Listings option was added to opt-out of having your name displayed in server listings. This on top of numerous bug fixes concludes the snapshot.

Team News

I’m a bit exhausted, but the news must go on!

Daniel – Daniel got a Switch and began playing a couple games.

Santiago – Santiago has to RMA his monitor because of stuck pixels. That sucks.

Nathan – Nathan has worked a lot more due to school, but says that when he’s not doing that he’s been playing games.

Sam – Sam lost $70 in crypto. Unfortunate!

Rust

Every now and then, we actually do get updates for this epic survival PvP shooter. Rust has a decent patch in the form of the MLRS & Desert Base Update.

It adds MLRS, four desert military base monuments, MLRS ammo, and a targeting module. There were also numerous improvements made to gameplay. Undo Redo support for paintings, hits registering in the combat log, hand gestures being usable while crouching, reduced horse dung, and more. Oh, yeah, and they also removed all of the Halloween-themed stuff. This on top of numerous bug fixes concludes the update.

Conclusion

That’s the news! It definitely wasn’t the most interesting haul we’ve had, but it’s still something. I feel like a broken record when I say I’m a broken record, but 1.18 is once again closer than ever! The Apex team is also as joyous as ever, with little to no issues besides a few lost bucks over crypto. Rust also has a cool new update with an awesome vehicle, and I can’t wait to launch missiles on someones’ crappy temp-base. In any case, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
