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?

    Americanah: Lupita Nyong’o & Danai Gurira Series Not Moving Forward at HBO Max

    Americanah: Lupita Nyong’o & Danai Gurira Series Not Moving Forward at HBO Max Variety is reporting that Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira’s Americanah series adaptation is no longer moving forward at HBO Max. The outlet shares that Nyong’o, who was set to star in and executive produce “was forced to exit the series” after production dates were pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic and conflicting with Nyong’o’s schedule on other projects. Gurira was attached as showrunner, writer, and EP for the series. RELATED: The Prophecy is Clear in New His Dark Materials Season 2 Trailer The series adaptation was based on author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s best-selling novel of the same name (which you can order here). Americanah tells the story of Ifemelu (Nyong’o), a young, beautiful, self-assured woman raised in Nigeria, who as a teenager falls in love with her classmate Obinze. Living in a military-ruled country, they each depart for the west, with Ifemelu heading for America, where, despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple for the first time with what it means to be black. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous undocumented life in London. The novel is a highly lauded tale that has become a leader in the cultural conversation and is an incredible exploration of the human experience that crosses three continents to give an empathetic, compelling view of the complex realities of race, politics, immigration, and identity. Along with Oscar winner Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), the series was set to star Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black, Tony Award nominee Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton), Zackary Momoh (Doctor Sleep), and Tireni Oyenusi (A True Crime). RELATED: Filming Begins on Titans Season 3 Following HBO Max Move The long-time passion project of Nyong’o’s originally received a 10-episode straight-to-series order at the streamer. Nyong’o had been developing the adaptation since 2014 with D2 Productions, Plan B Entertainment, and Potboiler Television.
