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?

    Vizio revives its intend to go public

    Vizio has revived its plans to go public more than five years after its first attempt at an IPO. The TV and sound bar manufacturer has submitted a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission regarding its proposed initial public offering. According to Bloomberg, the company listed $100 million as the size of the offering, but that's just a placeholder that could change. Vizio is expected to reveal the real number of and the price of shares for purchase in another filing at a later a date. The company tried to go public for the first time back in 2015 with a filing that emphasized the sales of its smart TVs. However, it withdrew its plans a year later after it reached a deal to be acquired by Chinese company LeEco for $2 billion. Vizio was going to become a LeEco subsidiary until their deal fell apart following the latter's fall from grace — the manufacturer even sued LeEco, which was then beset with financial problems, for the failed acquisition.  In its new filing, Vizio said it sold 7.1 million smart TVs in 2020, 20 percent more than what it sold the year before that. Its net income for 2020 is $102 million on a revenue of over $2 billion, over four times its $23 million income on a $1.8 billion revenue from 2019. While it made most of its money from device sales, $147 million of its 2020 revenue came from its Platform+ service made up of its SmartCast operating system and its viewer data business Inscape.
