    Red Dead Online's Frontier Pursuit has let you role play as a bounty hunter, collector, trader, and moonshiner. In today's update, you are invited to explore the animal kingdom as a naturalist that can track and study seven new species of animal.

    When breaking off of the beaten trail, players may not see foxes, beavers, wolves, elk, cougars, boars, and bison in the wilderness. You'll be tasked by conservationist Harriet Davenport to deliver information on these animals, which can be tracked in a new Animal Field Guide. Each animal has three sub-species and also a Legendary version to encounter. When you're out in the wild, you can use a new Advanced Camera to capture the animals in their habitats, partake in additional animal-based free-roam events (protect them and fight off poachers), and can perform mercy kills should something you are tracking become critically injured. You may nave a tight bond with the horse you have now, but this update gives you a new breed to ride: the Gypsy Cob with six coats to choose from. The Gypsy Cob is equipped with improved saddle and saddle bags.

    You can also hunt the animals and turn in their hides to Davenport's nemesis Gus MacMillian, who creates garments and trinkets that you can use. When hunting the legendary animals, you can use the new elephant rifle that is loaded with one-shot, one-kill Nitro Express Ammo.

    The update offers plenty of more tweaks and additions. You can read all about them at Rockstar's official blog.

    We’re changing that to 30 minutes. We do need to make sure realms are down when the reset occurs, and we expect to finish our final checks for the content and see realms open to players at around 9:30 a.m. PDT / 12:30 p.m. EDT (9:30 CEST).

    –Adaptive Swarm (damage swarm) will try to favor targets that have Moonfire or Rip active. It will not, however, merge/stack two swarms together if it can avoid it. The healing swarm was already pretty smart and there are no further changes to it right now.

    –Bloodtalons: trigger changed from “use Shred, Rake, and Thrash” to “use any 3 different generators”. Continuing on from a lot of feedback on this, the goal is to make it more flexible, and cause fewer rotation clashes, while still requiring a moment of planning to trigger.

    –Runecarve currently called Druid Runecarve 3 on beta (DoT/HoT tick rate): this was incomplete/ambiguous in the last build, but we are trying a version that compresses both tick rates and durations, taking from old abilities like Jagged Wounds and Glyph of Rapid Rejuvenation. That should be in and working next build for testing.

    WoW Shadowlands Given Rating for Xbox Series X in Brazil
    Twitter user Gematsu pointed out today that Shadowlands was given a rating in Brazil today along with PC. This might very well just be an error or related to the controller support found in the beta, as Ion said in a past interview that there was no plans to port WoW to consoles.

    WoW Classic: The Ahn'Qiraj War Effort Begins July 28
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    The time is nigh for the Alliance and Horde to heed the call to arms. You’ll need to band together with your allies to gather essential resources and fuel the war effort leading beyond the gates of Ahn’Qiraj.

    The great desert fortress of Ahn'Qiraj, long sealed behind the Scarab Wall, is home to the insectoid qiraji, a savage race set to mount an assault to devastate the continent of Kalimdor. But something far more sinister lurks behind Ahn'Qiraj's walls: the Old God C'Thun, an ancient entity whose pervasive evil had suffused Azeroth since time immemorial.

    Join the War Effort

    Supplies are needed to fuel the war effort against the sinister forces of Ahn’Qiraj. You’ll need to work alongside other members of your faction to contribute the resources needed open the ancient citadel’s gates and begin your siege on the Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj and the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj.

    Both Horde and the Alliance will need to bring a steady stream of supplies to the Valley of Spirits in Orgrimmar or to the Military Ward in Ironforge. Each turn-in will reward Ahn’Qiraj War Effort Supplies containing useful items and Alliance Commendation Signets or Horde Commendation Signets, which can be used to gain reputation with your faction.

    While many of the necessary supplies can be obtained as loot drops or purchased from the Auction House, having a profession that helps you acquire these supplies will also come in handy. Here is a list of items you’ll need to set your sights on collecting.

    Horde:

    Alliance:

    Both Factions:

    Once the resources for the War Effort have been gathered by both the Horde and the Alliance, supply chains will make their way from Ironforge and Orgrimmar to Cenarion Hold in Silithus. Once these resources reach Cenarion Hold, players who are on the quest line to create the Scepter of the Shifting Sands will be able to undertake the “Bang a Gong!” quest in order to complete it.

    Befriending Dragons

    During the War Effort, players will also be able to begin earning reputation with the Brood of Nozdormu by turning in Silithid Carapace Fragments. You’ll need to turn in the Head of the Broodlord Lashlayer to begin the quest “The Path of Righteous” or be deputized by another player who has Proxy of Nozdormu before these fragments will begin to drop for you.

    Who Will Rise as Scarab Lord?

    Players will also be able to begin a quest series to create the Scepter of the Sands, which will enable them to ultimately ring the gong on the realm they are on. The first player on each realm who completes the quest and rings the gong will become the realm’s “Scarab Lord” and receive the Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal, which will summon a ridable Qiraji battle tank that can be used in the outdoor world as well as within the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj.

    Players who complete the Scepter of the Sands quest chain and ring the gong in the first 10 hours of the gong being rung initially will also receive the Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal.

    Any other players who complete the quest line past the 10–hour period won’t receive the mount, but will still receive rewards from the “Treasure of the Timeless One” quest, which includes one of four epic weapons, experience, reputation, and a little money for your pocket.

    Pushing Back the Enemy

    Once the gong is rung on a realm, it will mark the beginning of a 10-hour war heralding the arrival of Anubisath and Qiraji warriors, which can be found in the Barrens and Thousand Needles (for lower-level players) and Silithus, Tanaris, and Feralas (for higher-level players). Defending against these incursions will give players a chance to earn gold, experience, and reputation with the Brood of Nozdormu, along with a higher chance for rare drops.

    Opening of the Gates

    At the completion of the 10-hour war, the Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj (a 20-player raid dungeon) and the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj (a 40-player raid dungeon) will open, allowing players access to the dangers and treasures within.

    Watch A Bear Drown A Guy While We Compose A Haiku In Ghost Of Tsushima

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    ghost_haiku.jpg

    I adored my time exploring Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima, and said as much in my review of the game. It’s a somber and thoughtful exploration of war and suffering, with an incredibly gorgeous setting.

    But it can also be pretty funny.

    In one especially amusing moment that I captured, Jin Sakai follows the telltale yellow bird to a quiet cliff overlook, there to contemplate (of all things) the nature of defeat. As he kneels in silent contemplation, and the softly flowing chant music begins to swell, the view cuts to the nearby lake. There, in perfect view, a pair of Mongol warriors are hard at work attempting to take down a bear. The bear picks up one of the men, flings him into the lake, and the man never surfaces. The other Mongol warrior, in a fierce act of vengeance, proceeds to kill the bear. And then, after an all-too-brief moment of looking out over the water for his buddy, he gives up and just hangs out on the shore.

    You can check out the brief but amusing exchange below.

    Oh, and for the record, this is the actual haiku I composed in the game, in response to the unfolding scene:

    Stillness of one’s mind
    Warriors fall, birthed anew
    Gasping for new life
