Quake Receives A Fresh Update With Machine Games Providing A New Horde Mode

Quake, which was re-released for modern consoles and PC back in August, is receiving even more love from the devs at Bethesda and Wolfenstein developer Machine Games with a new mode and content added with Update 2. Out today on all platforms, Update 2 brings a host of big fixes, but most importantly, an entirely new Horde Mode. Developed by the team at Machine Games, Quakes Horde Mode pits teams of 1-4 local or online players (or bots!) against swarms of AI enemies on four brand new horde maps. Every third wave of baddies will include a boss which coughs up a silver key which can be cashed in to collect more weapons and items, bolstering your arsenal for further battles.

It's a new Quake experience authored by senior level designer Christian Grawer from Machine Games. Quake is making its Epic Games Store debut today, as well. Pick it up there if EGS is your PC game launcher of choice. You can find the full contents of Update 2 here.  Are you going to squad up with friends and take on rounds of devious Quake hordes?

    14 picture-in-picture video stops dealing with YouTube&#039 iOS;s mobile website (updated)

    You may need to wait some time in order to use iOS 14’s picture-in-picture support to view YouTube videos. MacRumors (via 9to5Mac) has pointed out that YouTube’s mobile website stopped supporting iOS 14’s PIP mode, at the very least free of charge users. Check it out and a video is only going to pop out before it returns to the net page briefly.

    YouTube Premium subscribers experienced success in using PIP, but it’s not yet determined if YouTube is deliberately restricting the feature. iPad users, who go to the desktop version of the web site typically, haven’t had issues. The native YouTube app doesn’t currently support PIP on iPhone irrespective of your Premium status.

    We’ve asked YouTube for comment.

    It wouldn’t be surprising if the move was intentional. YouTube Premium offers background playback as you of its major perks, also it wouldn’t be difficult to utilize PIP on the internet to negate that perk. Still, which could easily be frustrating – it could total YouTube removing functionality that has been already present, briefly however.

    This also comes as promised YouTube 4K support on Apple TV has yet to materialize. The video giant promised that it’s still coming “soon” via an updated app, nonetheless it wasn’t ready alongside tvOS 14 like some had hoped. You’ll need to put up with 1080p for a time longer.

    Update 9/20 2PM ET: YouTube told Engadget that background playback is really a Premium feature. Put simply, don’t expect the functionality to come back free of charge users on the mobile web or elsewhere.
