    Square Enix is bringing a new game event to Marvel’s Avengers called Red Room Takeover. It will take place between May 20 to May 31.In the all-new single-player event, Agent James “Jimmy” Woo has uncovered several anomalies within the HARM Room, the virtual training simulator the Avengers use to practice and master their abilities.

According to the recent post by Square Enix, this decision was made because the rooms “require agility and a keen sense of one’s surroundings that may be interrupted by having a team.” Some of the obstacles you’ll have to overcome include Techno Lava, which instantly kills heroes and enemies, and Red Lightning, a more powerful version of AIM’s blue lightning. Each room will scale from Power Level 1 to 120. New mission chains will also be available.Playing the new Marvel’s Avengers Red Room Takeover event and mission chains will earn you an animated nameplate, tons of experience, and new outfits for all heroes.The event also serves as an introduction to the game’s new Champion System.

    Xbox test brings Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser to consoles

    You might finally have a good reason to use the web browser on your console for more than the bare necessities. The Verge reports that Microsoft has started testing a version of its Chromium-based Edge browser on the Xbox One and Series X/S. Participate in the Alpha Skip-Ahead testing ring and you'll get a web experience that's more in line with the modern era, including better compatibility and syncing with Edge across multiple platforms. This version is unsurprisingly buggy and doesn't include mouse or keyboard support. And while this theoretically enables access to Google Stadia, we wouldn't count on reliable access to that or other intensive web apps just yet. It may take a while before there's a more polished version of the new Edge for Xbox. When it is ready, though, the new browser could make a better case for buying an Xbox if web surfing matters to you. Right now, the PlayStation 5 doesn't even have an easily accessible web browser (you have to rely on tricks to use it at all). While that could change, a Chromium-based Xbox browser could give Microsoft a comfortable head start.
