25 Mar

If you like to stream on Twitch or YouTube, you may want to have a look at the Elgato Stream Deck.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta is live – watch Twitch streamers livestream the whole thing

23 Feb

Right on schedule, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta has kicked off on all platforms.

Watch live video from MyDopefish on www.twitch.tv

Provided your download is finished, you can now load up the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta and start fighting crime. Servers are now live all over the world on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

A lot of Twitch streamers have been waiting to jump back in, with many of them slapping countdown timers on their channels. Since you may be stuck at work or don’t have access to your gaming system for any other reason, we thought we’d show you some of what the top streamers will experience in the opening hours.

Above, Twitch streamer MyDopefish plays the PC version in solo.

As for the one below, it’ll be the Xbox One version being played in co-op by streamer Angrysausagetv.

Watch live video from angrysausagetv on www.twitch.tv

The open beta is around 24GB in size, but you can update your closed beta client if you still have that installed. You’ll still download some 20GB worth of data, but it’s smaller than the full thing.

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta includes access to two regions from the game’s 21. Itacua, and Montuyoc is what they’re called. You may recognise the former from the closed beta, and it’s where you’ll be starting again this time. Montuyoc is designed as a higher-level region than the introductory Itacua, so there’s definitely more to play this time around.

If you do end up joining the beta, and decide to also play the full game before March 31, you’ll receive an extra mission for free. The Unidad Conspiracy mission lets you fan the flames of war between the Santa Blanca cartel and the Unidad militia.

One other thing you can do before the game releases is mess around with this interactive mini-game. It’s easy to follow and it unlocks some in-game content and XP boosts.

The beta wraps up on Monday, February 27 at the same time it starts. That’s 3am PST, 6am EST, 11am GMT, and 12am CET.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Prominent World of Tanks streamer Poshybrid dies after lengthy stream

22 Feb

Brian “Poshybrid” Vigneault, a Twitch streamer known for his World of Tanks streams, has died after streaming the game for 22 hours straight.

world of tanks xbox one 2

Poshybrid was 22 hours into a stream in which he was collecting money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, when he got up to take a smoke break and never returned. His death didn’t become known until the next day.

As Kotaku has reported, detectives from the Virgina Beach police department are investigating the incident.

Poshybrid had 7852 subscribers on Twitch, and regularly hosted long streams on little sleep.

This is a strong reminder of the importance of employing safe practices if you’re a streamer – try to avoid sleep deprivation, keep hydrated, and don’t be afraid to pull the plug on a stream if necessary.

Our thoughts are with his friends, family, and fans.

It’s also possible we’ll see some multiplayer later on. Wish her well.

If you’re playing For Honor and need some tips, give our guide a read.

Watch the Battlefield 1 Winter Update livestream here

13 Feb

We’re moments away from the start of a Battlefield 1 livestream.

Watch live video from Battlefield on www.twitch.tv

DICE is showcasing the next big Battlefield 1 patch at the top of the hour in a dedicated livestream on Twitch. Typically, patches don’t get their own livestreams, but this one is for the Winter Update.

The Winter – or February – Update is expected to bring a number of balance changes, some of which have already been tested in the game’s Community Test Environment (CTE). New content is unlikely, but we still expect the changes to be big.

DICE previously confirmed that the patch will indeed be dropping this week, so expect more details such as patch notes, and exact rollout times to be shared during the show.

We’ve embedded the livestream above, and as always, if it’s big news, you’ll hear about it here first.

DICE will officially detail the Battlefield 1 February update later today

13 Feb

We’re going to get a proper breakdown of everything coming to Battlefield 1 this week with the Winter Update.

Last week, Battlefield 1 developer DICE confirmed that the game’s next big patch is due for release this week.

Until now, the details of what’s getting changed have yet to be announced. Later today, however, everything will become clear in a livestream dedicated to the Winter Update.

This first look show will go on for an hour, and will kick off at 1pm PT, 4pm ET, and 9pm UK/GMT. The livestream will appear on the game’s official Twitch channel.

DICE has yet to give any hints about the type of announcements we can expect from the livestream, but whatever they end up being, we’ll be here to tell you all about them as they happen.

We’re streaming Layers of Fear, come help us navigate this definitely haunted house

6 Feb

We’re going to take a tour of the Layers of Fear house, which has been known to show signs of being haunted.

Watch live video from vg247 on www.twitch.tv

Layers of the Fear, one of the most talked about horror games of last year, has a few a good few jump scares if you’re in the mood for it. I personally can’t take it, which is why it’s good we have Shabana to host this livestream instead.

Layers of Fear’s walls are plastered with artworks of various disciplines, only they’ve got a few things going on than your typical portrait.

She’ll be starting off the adventure live in a few moments. This is her first go around in Layers of Fear, so be gentle. She’s also playing the PS4 version.

Tune in now, and make sure to come back later this week, as we’ll be embarking on a different kind of horror adventure.
