PUBG 1.0 Update:
As many of you know, the full version of PUBG recently went live on Xbox. Some of you may have gotten to try out the new features, but others have not. So, I'm going to give those people a little bit of a layout of the new features.
First and foremost, let's discuss the new map, Sanhok. This map is alot smaller than the traditional PUBG map, being a 4x4 map. This creates a way more intense game by not only forcing you to drop where there will always be someone else, but also by increasing the loot spawn where you're going to find at least one good weapon in every compound. The blue wall also has been changed to suit the smaller map by reducing the time between moving circles, and by making the wall move slower. So if you decide to land on the coast, and the safe zone is on the complete opposite side, you will have time to loot your compound and outrun the wall.
Next I want to talk about the new weapons added. The QBZ, and the QBU are both 5.56 weapons that are currently only on Sanhok. The QBZ is an AR that can completely demolish anyone in your path as long as you have the appropriate attachments. You definitely have to go for a quickdraw mag over an extended mag with this gun since it has a slower reload, a half grip will work perfectly to control the recoil, and of course a compensator to be a little mean to your enemies. The QBU is a DMR that replaces the Mini14 on Sanhok. Best used with a compensator, extended mag, your choice of sight, and by going prone to use the built in tripod that only thing gun has. If used this way the QBU is a very powerful weapon that should be feared. If used standing, the recoil might make you miss a key shot or two, so choose your shot wisely.
Finally this brings us to the new vehicle. It's a smaller truck, that has amazing handing and seems to be the only reliable vehicle on Sanhok right now. You can have this truck going it's max speed, and still control of it on any terrain.
There you have it everyone! Hope all of you enjoyed it, and I'll see you next time!

Neverwinter

2612c67e07ba0ef5319b7a2dd67730c61528468484.jpg

Hey everyone, this article is going to Neverwinter. This free-to-play open world RPG was first released to PC in 2013, Xbox One in 2015, and finally to PlayStation 4 in 2016. Like many other RPGs ,Neverwinter has multiple different Races and Classes that you get to choose from to create your character exactly how you want. At the end of this article I will list all of them for those of you who are interested. Before I get to that, I would like to give you a brief rundown of the Levels , Item Levels , Storyline , and a mixture of different Enemies that you will encounter during your adventure.

First off let's talk about your personal Level . There are currently only 70 levels in Neverwinter, and like most games it takes more XP to level up with each one. A good example is that it takes more XP to get from level 60 to 61, than it takes to get from level 1 to level 60. Yes, it sounds difficult but, there are enchantments that can give you a XP boosts along with being able to get major XP boosts from a lockbox. The best way to get to level 70 would be to either grind dungeons, or find a friend who is already at 70 to help you.

Next up is your Item Level. As of the latest update, the highest Item Level is a little over 23,000. You can increase it by getting better gear, artifacts, companions, mounts, and boons. Boons are the best way to get a high Item Level, and can be received by completing your Campaigns. There are multiple different Campaigns that are not apart of the actual storyline, and each one contains several Boons that will raise your Item Level if you can get the requirements finished.

The next thing I will discuss is a small look into the Storyline . I can't go into everything because I don't want to ruin everything for you guys, but I can give you a few things to look forward to. The basic concept is to protect King Neverember, and his Kingdom at all costs. From tracking down his stolen crown, completely changing your appearance to spy on someone who is trying to take over, and even helping the King find gold when he ends up going broke. This game is full of shocking encounters, and painful betrayals that will always keep you interested.

Good job on your second article. The only suggestion I have is for you to add some effects to make it a little more appealing to the eye, such as pictures if you can.

Let me know when you are done with the next edit.
