Monster Hunter: World to get Street Fighter 5 Content

Monster Hunter: World to get Street Fighter 5 Content

Fans of the latest Monster Hunter release will be excited to find out that Capcom is offering Street Fighter 5 crossover content for Monster Hunter: World. The DLC will let players earn armor skins that will have them looking like the Street Fighter characters Ryu and Sakura. The update announced on the Capcom Unity Blog detailed that players with a Street Fighter 5 save file will also be able to take on the Ryu quest before everyone else.

It’s Almost Here

“In just a few weeks, we’ll be featuring the quest to get Ryu’s set as an exclusive early opportunity to PS4 players that also have a save data file from Street Fighter V (including Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition),” Capcom explained in the blog post. (

Players that have the save data will receive a quest “Down the Dark, Muddy Path.” After hunters take on the hunt, they will receive “SFV Tickets” as a reward. These tickets are to be taken to the Smithy along with a variety of other materials found in the wild to fashion themselves the Ryu armor set.

No Street Fighter? No Problem!

Capcom explained that those without the Street Fighter data won’t have to wait much longer for the DLC. While the armor set will go back into rotation soon, a specific date has yet to be announced by the developer. When the time comes, two new event quests will be added to the rotation which will let all players earn the Ryu and Sakura armor on both PS4 and Xbox One.

Along with the character models, Capcom is including a bunch of premium gestures and chat stamp sets to purchase. This set will feature the iconic Hadoken and Shoruken. All of the prices are listed below.

  • Guild Card: Bonus Stage (Free)
  • Achievements: Rival, Destined, Living Legend and Bandana Girl (Free)
  • Pose: Shoryuken & Hadoken (Free)
  • Gesture: Street Fighter V Hadoken ($3.99)
  • Gesture: Street Fighter V Shoryuken ($3.99)
  • Stamp Set: Street Fighter V Set – ($1.99)

This DLC will be the second crossover between the two Capcom titles. Street Fighter V recently received Monster Hunter skins for some of their fighters to celebrate the launch of Monster Hunter: World.

Capcom seems to be fully supporting Monster Hunter: World and hopefully this means we’ll be seeing many more crossovers in the future. We here at Gigamax Games are big fans of Monster Hunter: World so check back soon for all the latest updates for the game.


Lawbreakers Launches Huge New Patch

Lawbreakers All-Star Update

An update has just released for the Anti-Gravity FPS Hero Based Multiplayer experience, Lawbreakers, and it’s a big one. As of now the update for Cliff Bleszinski’s new game is available on PS4 and PC. The patch adds a ton of new content, most notably Boss Leagues, a new ranked mode that fans have been anticipating since the game launched.

Even though Boss Leagues is now live, it seems like the first season is a bit of a test. Season 0 is what the studio named this “beta season” and plans on gathering feedback so they can improve future seasons. Currently, there are three game modes in Season 0: Blitzball, Uplink, and Occupy, which don’t allow doubling up on roles, much like the ever popular, Overwatch. The studio also made it easier to find players by extending matchmaking parameters.

The new update also includes a brand new map where players can test their skills in Blitzball. It’s known as Gateway and is located above the streets of San Francisco. “Gateway, the Blitzball stadium, is a such a marvel, as it floats effortlessly in the sky thanks to Hadronium’s anti-gravitational properties,” Boss Key says. The studio updated the Redfalls map to contain a Blood Moon that gives the stage an overall creepier vibe, but in terms of gameplay, this new aesthetic does not do much.

Stealth 700 Gaming Headset for PS4

Today’s update will add a bunch of new content players can unlock through the loot box system. In total there are more than 120 new items to collect. Lastly, the update adds a much-needed tutorial mode which was a confusing misstep when the game first launched. The full patch notes for the game are below and Gigamax will be keeping a close eye on Lawbreakers developments, so be sure to check back for more information!

  • Frenzy replenishes all movement charges upon activation (Patch 1.4 missing note)

  • “Enforcers health has been brought down since previous patches have increased his survivability.”

  • Instigator’s reload speed has been sped up by 10%.
  • Holo-Deflector can be manually destroyed by pressing the activation button again (Patch 1.4 missing note).

  • Pulverize’s max damage increased from 125 → 175.

Final Fantasy XIV Director Wants Game on Switch

Final Fantasy XIV Director Wants Game on Switch

Final Fantasy XIV is an amazing MMORPG that has captured the hearts (and wallets) of many players around the world. This game has a pretty hardcore fan base that would love to see it played by as many people as possible. If things go as planed, fans will soon see this experience on two more consoles.

The Inside Scoop

In a recent interview with gaming publication, Kotaku, the game’s director, Naoki Yoshida, stated that “would love for as many players to be on FFXIV as possible” and continued by saying “conversations have been had with Phil Spencer of Microsoft, and the upper management teams of Nintendo.” ( Although if this were to happen, Yoshida has one condition that may be the biggest hurdle.

Yoshida confirmed in the interview that if the game were to be made available on both consoles that they must has cross platform play. He stated that the reason this has to happen is because many companies don’t realize how consistent updates and the way servers are maintained and operated for MMO’s go into how the game runs. “Those can become a hurdle when we consider operating FFXIV for an extended period of time,” he said. “So when I talk to those first-party companies, I ask them, ‘Do you have the capability to prepare for that, do you have the resolve that you’re going to make sure to take responsibility and take care of those, do you have that willingness?’

Sony seems like a lost cause in terms of cross platform play. Recently, the company opted out of allowing both Minecraft and Rocket League to be played between the competing consoles. This follows the announcement at Microsoft’s E3 conference where they laid out plans to continue support for cross platform play between the Switch and PC players. Sony currently has no intentions to ever allow cross platform play and may never allow it to happen on their consoles.

Recently Square Enix debuted the most recent expansion for FF XIV, Stormblood and has made it clear that they are going to continue to support the game. Gigamax Games has recently become heavily invested in this game and will keep a close eye on any updates the developer releases so make sure to keep checking back for more.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is definitely not for the weak. Interesting mechanics and precision style combat make it difficult to jump right into. Unless a player swings away wildly in every direction with no regard for the well being of teammates. You can decide which the Gigamax crew is made up of with the video below.

In all honesty, it was a fun game delivering some exhilarating moments followed by questions and laughs. Released in 2012, it’s a relatively old game and was worth the revisit.

Diablo 3 Patch 2.5.0 Explained in Detail

Diablo 3 Patch 2.5.0 Explained

Diablo 3 just dropped a major update and there are some big changes coming to both console and PC. Those waiting anxiously for the Diablo 3 Patch that includes the Necromancer.. Sorry, this patch isn’t for you. However, there’s still room to be excited as Blizzard pulled the carpet out from underneath the Diablo community.

The Armory Is Here

diablo 3 patch, diablo armory, new update, diablo update


The first major change will be the Armory feature which was first announced at BlizzCon last year. This new features lets players store up to five different skill and armor builds for each character. This really has the potential to open up the game. Diablo 3 has a unique feature when compared with the previous versions, a character doesn’t have to commit to a skill set. This means players can now seamlessly switch between skill sets and match it with armor sets that will contribute to those skills. It seems minor, but this can really open up the game and entice players to experiment with new builds.

Another exciting addition that’ll clear up some bag space is the change that crafting materials (Arcane Dust or Forgotten Souls) will not fill up your inventory. These items will now be moved to a separate area. Materials that you are already holding will automatically be moved. This will free up some space to gather all the loot your heart desires. A little floating message will pop up above the character’s head which will keep you up to date on how many you have.

Time To Get Serious

diablo 3 patch, diablo 3 update, new update, diablo, gigamax, gigamax games


Serious players now have a new item to grind for in 2.5.0. Primal Ancients are extremely rare items, guaranteed to have perfect Ancient-level stats and the maximum amount of sockets possible. Primal Ancients will only be available after a player reaches Greater Rift 70 solo with one of the characters on their account. After meeting the prerequisite, any of the items you find will be for the class you’re playing with when it drops. This also means something else for the community. It gives players a reason to grind out and improve their character to run these Rifts solo, rather than just leaching experience and items off of Greater Rifts that are way above their ability.

The updates don’t stop there. Adventure mode is next on the chopping block as they reduced the chance certain tile sets will appear in Greater Rifts. Furthermore, the highest solo Greater Rift completion will now determine which torment levels will be available, instead of Paragon level. Also, Bonus Acts are no longer a part of the game. Completing any Act will net the same rewards as the Bonus Acts.

A fun little addition is the game now allows players to assign Paragon points 100 at a time. All people have to do is hold the Ctrl key on PC.

Seasons On Console

Those on console will be introduced to Seasons. The first will start on March 31st and will be essentially the same as the PC version, where you will start a fresh character who can’t access the bank.

This is a pretty serious Diablo 3 Patch. But, we’re still waiting for that Necromancer class to drop. Be sure to check back on Gigamax Games for the latest coverage of Diablo 3 and more!


Battlefield 1 Four DLC Details Revealed with Gigamax

Battlefield 1 – Four DLC’s Explained

Battlefield 1 is a fantastic step forward in EA and DICE’s franchise and they’re getting ready to drop four new DLC’s. A detailed look into these unique expansions has become available and below you’ll find a breakdown of each one. With so many great games being released, it’s impressive Battlefield still has the strength to pull the community back in time and time again. Take a look and see what’s in store.

The upcoming expansions will be available as individual purchases, or free for Premium Pass holders. As of now, the Premium Pass costs $50 so maybe ‘free’ isn’t the right term.

“They Shall Not Pass”

Players will have a chance to play as the World War 1 era French army, fighting across four French maps. The Car 2C tank also makes an appearance in the DLC which is the game’s newest behemoth class vehicle. This is by far the most highly covered of the four expansions as it’s currently available on the Community Test Environment.

“In The Name of the Tsar”

in the name of tsar, tsar battlefield,, battlefield, battlefield 1, gaming, new games, video game news, gaming news, gigamax games

The second expansion puts the player directly in the front lines with the Russian army, ready to ride along with the “legendary Hussars.” The historic Brusilov offensive and Albion assault are the primary theme of the second DLC.

“Turning Tides”

Battlefield 1 is taking to the sea in this expansion focused on naval warfare. A new destroyer and coastal class airship will become available which is going to add even more diversity to this already unique first-person shooter. Players will be tossed into the hell of war as they take part in the Zeebrugge raid and storm the beaches of Gallipoli.


apocalypse, apocalypse battlefield, apocalypse update, DLC, battlefield, battlefield 1, gaming, new games, video game news, gaming news, gigamax, gigamax games

This expansion will include some of the most “infamous battles of WW1.” This is where some of the most “brutal tools and unique weapons” will rear their ugly heads. When faced with tremendous obstacles, people will do whatever it takes to survive. Desperation and deadlock describes World War I perfectly and the weapons making their way to this fourth expansion will be a testament to that fact.

Battlefield 1 has delivered so much entertainment and this is the perfect time to release an expansion of this size. This is not to say the game was getting stale, but it’s definitely time to learn some new maps, weapons and find ourselves in some new crazy situations.
