The official Nintendo UK Store now has the physical edition of Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch available for pre-order. The incredibly popular sandbox title will be available for purchase on 21st June and will cost you £24.99. Here’s the details:
Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Explore randomly-generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles.
This Bedrock version of the game contains all the great previously released content, including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack exclusive to Nintendo systems and all DLC, but now allows players to connect with friends on non-Nintendo systems via cross-platform play.
Even if Sony has started to mention new information about the company’s future PlayStation 5, it seems that they are not done with PlayStation 4 either. It is still going strong and consumers don’t feel the need for a new hardware or consider the platform out-dated. So, the discussions about Sony’s products are either focused on the future PlayStation 5 or on keeping the PlayStation 4 on the market for longer.
Sony is almost as important as Nintendo, a position which will enable the company to gain even more market share in the future but it shouldn’t be distracted by using more resources for one console than the other.
The PlayStation 4’s popularity
In 2018, PS4 will be on the market for five years. Sony may follow the PlayStation 3’s trend of lasting over seven years and go even further to confirm that it will last for three years or more, breaking the company’s record of such a lasting presence. Its lifespan may have been extended, but fans need to know what a future PlayStation will bring to the table. The company will consolidate the PlayStation 4 in order to catch the consumers’ attention and raise brand awareness for its next console.
The shift from the SNES-era systems to the PlayStation and from the PlayStation to the PlayStation 2 made Sony what it is today. The PS4 has introduced the 4K gaming together with Xbox One games but it seems that it would remain the last “traditional” console generation after the PlayStation 5 will be launched. However, the technological advancement will be a subtle one, making it easy to understand that consumers are really satisfied with the PS4.
The future PlayStation 5
Sony’s console will be the closest thing to a cutting-edge successor, leaving the days of testing proprietary hardware and Emotion Engine far behind. Whatever configuration of hardware Sony will use, it will look almost as a linear evolution of the PS4. The PS5 is expected to perfectly run your digital library of PS4 games, depending on the Blu-Ray drive. Since losing an entire library of digital games would be a great drive not to switch to a different platform, it would additionally lock consumers into their console choice.
Sony hasn’t made all the decision regarding the PlayStation 4 yet but it would be surprising if the company hadn’t already tried PS5 prototypes with a hybrid home console model for Switch or even with an eGPU for a portable device. However, in such cases, the hardware would likely be compatible with the PS4. The next console model will certainly have an upgraded hardware for the first time in Sony’s platforms.
When it comes to mobile games, there aren’t that many titles which can even compare with Clash of Clans. The developer who is in charge of Clash of Clans is constantly rolling out new updates which are filled with lots of in-game goodies such as new features, rewards and even content! In fact, a brand-new Clash of Clans update which changes the game’s version number to “10.134.17” is now available.
Clash of Clans 10.134.17 Update
The new update measures in at 98.6MB and it requires a minimum of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system in order to work. As you can probably tell already, the new update is exclusive to Android smartphone owners and iOS fans will need to wait a little more until it becomes available for them too.
Bug Fixes and Software Improvements
Android fans should be happy to know that they are going to get their hands on this update ahead of everyone else because it comes with bug fixes and software improvements. While most people don’t pay that much attention to bug fixes and software improvements, they are the ones which make sure that Clash of Clans runs without any issues and that it never randomly crashes in the middle of combat.
Now that we talked about the latest Clash of Clans update, let’s check out some of the game’s highlight features and see what it’s all about. First off, the game is free to play but readers shouldn’t think that the game is not of premium quality because of this.
Clash of Clans offers an awesome gaming experience where people get to build their own villages and then slowly, but surely transform them into unbeatable fortresses. In addition, Clash of Clans features different mods where players can fight against their foes and take their trophies.
Supercell announced that Clash Royale is scheduled to receive a major update on June 5th, 2018. The game developer has made it a tradition to release massive updates during summer time and to make things even better, the new Clash Royale update will focus on adding more features, gameplay changes and to balance classes. With that being said, let’s check out what are the most important changes that the new update will bring.
Four New Cards
Even though Supercell doesn’t want to unveil any important details about the upcoming update, the Clash Royale community has strong reason to believe that four new cards are going to be introduced in June. In addition, dataminers managed to find some hints which point towards these new cards.
Talking about balancing the game, Supercell is expected to add some important software tweaks to the Clan Wars game inside Clash Royale. The last time Clan Wars received an update was back in April and rumor has it that the game developer is looking to fix tie games and to give players more incentive to mix in different troops in order to create a diverse war deck.
If we take a look at what the Clash Royale community has to say about emotes, we will see that they are both hated and loved. Some people love them because they make it easier to express themselves while others hate emojis because trolls spam them in the chat and this can get annoying. Nonetheless, Supercell wants to expand the range of emojis Clash Royale offers and fans should be ready to see more funny emojis in the summer.
Last but not least, a previously leaked picture showed that Supercell plans to introduce a new Elite Archer troop. The special thing about this troop is that it uses a crossbow, and this might make it more powerful than the normal Archer class that we all know and love.
Whether you are a beginner or a professional player, the essence is advice on strategy. You don’t have to be a new player to learn, nor do you have to be an expert and to know everything. Crashing your enemies on your next mission will be easier with these quick Clash of Clans tips, so the battlefield may be perfect.
Choose wise targets
When you go to attack, it’s very important to ask for as little resources as possible and to steal as many as possible in Clash of Clans. Theoretically, this would be possible to accomplish relatively comfortably with a few hordes of archers, barbarians and goblins. Practically, it becomes very difficult because of mortars, the most dangerous “splash” type of defensive that ravages in the hijacking hordes. The secret is that using Lightning Spell with 4+ upgrades, you can easily escape from level 4-5 mortars, providing a break in the direction of attack of predator hordes. The success of a farming raid is much more likely in this case, with minimal consumption of resources.
2. A strong army camp is a key
In general, you have a whole day before the war begins. During this waiting period, learn the battlefield, arrange the army and upgrade your air defense. If the walls are low, go for the battlefields. Pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of the target group before launching an attack.
3. Understand the idea of losing
Probably you’ve met many players in the game who have the Town Hall exposed, unprotected by walls or other defensive means. You have probably thought that there is no reasonable reason to leave Town Hall exposed to vandals, especially since, if it is destroyed, the struggle is lost. Wrong. This is a smart way of losing and fast moving into the game.
There are several reasons, but most importantly, whenever someone attacks you and destroys you, you will get at least one shield for 12 hours. In this way, regardless of the value of the attack you receive, you assure a relatively permanent shield, which in fact leads to the protection of the production of resources (elixir, gold), thus to development. Use this to create your advantage. Surround the Town Hall with traps (bombs, hoods, and tesla), discouraging the attack plan from the start.
