Weekly News Roundup Issue 52

Days Gone DLC Confirmed

We may have written this quick news bite just before Days Gone came out, but it didn’t stop our surprise with a DLC announcement. Following the release of Spiderman, discussions have cropped up surrounding developers holding content back specifically for DLC. The cynicism surrounding that is only boosted when DLC is announced before a game is even released. However, that’s no doubt an opinion piece for another time. Take a look at this article if you picked up the open world zombie smasher, for DLC details.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patches On The Way



Normally, a mere patch update to a game is hardly worth a news article. After all, we get them daily nowadays. However, in the case of Mortal Kombat 11, one of many sticking points for fans has been its towers. Typically an arcade style, fight after fight kind of setup with no story, MK 11’s challenge towers have become the best way to farm upgrade currency. Only, when the randomised buffs and debuffs make them impossible (in some cases) NetherRealm have to pay attention. It seems they are, with a number of patches and fixes on the way in response to opening week complaints.

Fortnite Experiences A Cheater Purge

The recently held Fortnite World Cup exposed a heck of a lot of cheaters

Fortnite’s Online World Cup Open it seems, can bring out the worst in some of us. In a move from Epic that will likely have resulted in nearly 1,200 crying children and almost double the amount of parents no longer fearing their wallets whereabouts – scores of players have been banned. The event brought to light some of the more insidious players out there, desperate for glory on the virtual battlefield. We covered the repercussions they faced.

Keen Attendance At Insomnia 64

A renowned gathering of gamers

If there’s a gaming event going down, you can be sure KeenGamer will be there to cover it. We recently took a look at this year’s EGX Rezzed in London and the next big thing on the to do list was Insomnia 64 at the Birmingham NEC, here in the UK. To catch up on the big events and gaming competitions of the event, you can be sure to do so right here at KeenGamer.
