Xbox Series X

Xbox Series X: What We Know So Far
The next generation console battle begins.....

The next generation of Xbox called the Series X, sounds cool enough. But will be able to stand up to the new Play Station 5?
Below is some information we know about the Series X.
Release Date
Microsoft haven't yet given us a specific date of release. However, we know it will be released in 2020, close to the PS5 launch. Microsoft have also said the launch date will not be effected by Covid-19. It's been 7 years since the first series of the Xbox One was released, I'm sure we can wait a little bit more for the Series X.
Basically, we don't know what the price is yet. Microsoft have not released the price bracket, you can't even pre-order the Series X yet.
The Series X doesn't look the same as any other Xbox. It looks like a brick, if we're honest. However, it's not as big as you may think. After doing some research on this, if you take a Xbox One controller and lay it down on the table, the Series X is about that wide. If you stand the controller on its thumb grips and multiply that height by 3 or 4, that's the height of the console. Since the console is a square tower, it's as deep as it is wide. 
As far as we can tell, it has no ports on the front like the One S and X do, all the ports are on the back of the console. Also, the Series X will support the Unreal Engine 5, and it includes the Lumen and Nanite technologies for lightning and geometry. As of yet, no other specs have been released.

The new controller for the Series X will be almost identical to the Xbox One controller. It will be powered by AA batteries or a rechargeable pack, just like the old ones. The only major difference will be there is now a share button, which is located just below the power button. Making it easier to capture screen shots and game play.
We also know the new controller will be lighters and has new technology in so the triggers and thumb sticks will be more sensitive and quicker to respond.
As it stands at the moment, there are only a few games confirmed for the Series X. These include Halo Infinite, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, and Cyberpunk 2077. As time goes by, Microsoft will release more game titles that are coming to the Series X.
Given that the Series X is backwards compatible, the console will support a Smart Delivery feature in order to make sure you're always downloading the right version of the game you want to play. 
As more information is released about the Xbox Series X, we will keep the TG community informed.
What do you think of the Series X?  What looks better, the Series X or PS5?

Weekly Gaming Fix

Summer is here what games have new DLC, and what game might you have missed?
Below is a list of some DLCs and games being released or that are already out!

Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Steel Wave (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) - June 16th
Operation Steel Wave came out on June 16th and adds many things to Rainbow Six Siege. Here are some of the features added:
The biggest addition is the two new addition of the operators to the Rainbow Six Team they are named Ace, and Mellusi. Ace is a Norwegian operator who is on the attacking side and is a new hard breacher being introduced to the game with his SELMA gadget.  Mellusi is a South African operator who is on the defending side and is called a trap operator with her Banshee gadget. This will also be the last season where Ubisoft will introduce two new operators in the new season. On going now they will be adding only one operator to each season where the developers of the game can focus more on game mechanics and making sure the game is more polished.
Another addition to the new Season is a rework of the map called "House".

The map has been in the game since it has been released and has been a personal favorite to many of the members of the Rainbow Six Siege community. Here is a road map for the rest of year 5:

Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) - November 19

Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed! The game made by CD PROJEKT RED was supposed to be released on September 17 of this year but has been delayed. To quote both Marcin Iwinski and Adam Badowski in a statement

Later stating on that such a large world to play on means that there is more to iron out and make sure that they will spend that time doing exactly that. Both Iwinski and Badowski also said:
Here is a link to their twitter if you need more updates for Night City Wire or the game itself: https://twitter.com/CyberpunkGame

What do you think of the new Rainbow Six Season? Do you think Cyberpunk will be delayed again?

The PS5

Sony has recently revealed the new PS5 along with a list of accessories that will be available to be purchased for the next gen console. The new PS5 is set to be released in 2020 during the holiday season. The prior two playstation consoles, the PS4 and the PS3, were both released on the third Friday in November hence why it is currently being speculated that the next generation console will be released on the 20th of November, the third Friday of the month. Sony will launch the new console with two different models, the default console will come with a 4K Blu-ray drive whereas the Digital Edition will have no optical drive.
The PlayStation 5 is over 5.5 times as powerful as the launch-model PlayStation 4, and almost 2.5 times more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro, according to Sony. The technology of the PS5 will allow the console to deliver content at resolutions as high as 8K and frame rates up to 120 frames per second, with cutting-edge graphics features like hardware-accelerated real-time ray tracing in games. 
As mentioned before Sony will be releasing the next gen console with many new accessories like the brand new wireless controller, the DualSense. Along with the new controllers comes a brand new charging station, the DualSense Charging Station. What makes this charging station different however is that you connect the bottom of the controllers into it to charge them however the USB-C port is located on the top of the remotes. Sony is also coming out with the Media Remote, which seems to look a lot similar to an Apple TV remote instead of a traditional Sony remote control. The last two accessories that will be coming out are a depth-sensing camera for the PS5 and the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.
Prices have not been announced yet however more updates will follow in the weeks to come!

ATO - Sabre Squad CoD

To all who shall see these presents, greeting:

Know Ye, that reposing special trust and confidence in the fidelity and abilities of

I hereby award
one instance of the Instrumental Leaders Award Medal.

BudZeus23 and vThammim began the idea of creating a Warzone Competitive team and then put in the work to make it happen.  Talk became action quickly as they ran off an 11-game win streak, beating two Top 40 teams along the way.  They have recruited new members to Tactical Gaming (xX_Aliki_Xx and JRevelations) for the purpose of Competition on GameBattles. Until recently all of these efforts took place outside of traditional practice time and without capitalizing on the incentives of  optional practice points.
have each been awarded one instance of the Combat Operations Award Medal.

TG Sabre has won 32 games and lost only 5 in the 10 days they participated before the season closed in June.  Beating the 27th an 37th ranked teams early in the season served as a springboard for this group.  Their success, ranked 44th of 6,105 (inside the Top 1%), has spurred me to request COD/PS4/1st second CP team and first for Warzone.
For his efforts on and off the field of battle.  His k/d in Warzone is among the top seventh percentile in COD Tracker and his wins in the top three percentile.  Outside of the game, BudZeus has been the engine that drives the car known as Competitive Warzone.  
has been awarded one instance of the Distinguished Operative Award Medal.


Medal Descriptions

Given under my hand at Tactical Warfare Command on this 26th day of June, 2020.

Mixer Shutting Down

Today, In the world of gaming news, Mixer, Microsoft's Streaming platform is shutting down on July 22nd 2020

Microsoft bought Mixer back in 2016 when it was originally called "beam".  Since then, the platform had a rocky start after Microsoft poured millions of dollars into it.  However, it couldn't compete with the giants like YouTube or Twitch. 

This is a huge blow to any streamer out there that have lost their job either working for mixer or streams on mixer and making a living on it. 
Microsoft is now moving its partners to Facebook Gaming, a slowly growing platform for streaming.  For those that haven't kept up to date with the world of streaming Facebook entered the Online Gaming industry in the last or so and have been slowly building the platform up.  

I feel any streamer will have seen this coming, Mixer has been behind the likes of Twitch and Youtube for years now and have never really caught up, even striking a deal with Ninja (famous fortnite streamer) and many others in hope to bring some more viewers but ultimately that failed. 
What do you think of this?  Let us know in the comments below!

Sea of Thieves Updates

Sea of Thieves: Free Lost Treasure Update
The game studios behind the great pirate game, Sea of Thieves, have been busy with updates.

As sailors will know, you can now have pets (and even dress them up) and they have added more custom skins for ships and weapons. But that is just the tip of ice burg.... 

Tall Tales in Sea of Thieves are exciting narrative-driven adventures that delve into the stories behind some of its prominent people and places. Nine of these Tales make up the Shores of Gold sequence, while another two arrived in recent monthly content updates The Seabound Soul and Heart of Fire. For people who remember Tall Tales, it can be played at any time, and this month’s update introduces new features to make them easier than ever to seek out and enjoy. They have added checkpoints and little items here and there to make the journey a little easier.
You can now join with other ships to form and be part of collations. Such as gold or just pure fighting and raiding. For single ships on the seas, this can be daunting idea as you see a fleet coming towards you. But if you join them, you help contribute to the over all booty you find, and you get paid a nice fee for helping. 

There is a great feeling of banding together and doing missions, or hunting down other pirates and ruining their day.
The SoT servers are a place full of tales to be told and challenges to be faced, never more so than in May’s free monthly update Lost Treasure. which is out now. Daily Bounties and events to rally the most resourceful crews on the seas, there’s a packed month of activity ahead.
There is plenty to do on the open seas, just keep a watch over the stern to make sure you ain't followed!

A New Star Wars Game?!

Star Wars: Squadrons Is Coming!
So there is a new Star Wars game coming soon, and I am VERY excited about it. 

As the die hard Star Wars fans out there will know, playing a Star Wars game is pure joy. Yes, they have glitches and little irritating points, but which game doesn't? When i saw the trailer for this game, i was so happy. And I'm sure you Star Wars fans out there will also be happy!
So, lets talk about the new game...

Well it's called Star Wars: Squadrons and yes, you guessed it, it's based on flying. You can fly such things like the Tie Fighter, X-Wing, A-Wing, Tie Interceptor and many more. The game is set after the Battle of Endor (you know when the second Death Star was destroyed).
This story switches between 2 pilots, that you can customize, who are flying for New Republic's Vanguard Squadron and the Empire's Titan Squadrons.

The multiplayer game modes supports up to 10 players per server, so it will be a 5 v 5 PVP experience. As players earn more experience, they can unlock new weapons, shields, upgrades and various cosmetic items for the pilot and their ship. Sounds great!
This game could be a great Division, if enough people are interested!!
The game will be available on PC, Xbox One & PS4 and will be released on October 2nd this year. 
On an interesting note, this game will be cross play AND support virtual reality (VR) head sets. 
Check out the trailer below:
I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait until this game is out. 2020 looks to be improving, slowly.
What do you guys think of the trailer? Will you be buying this game? Would you like to see this as a Division in TG?
