The Falconeer Patch
Starting off with a bit of news from last week – The Falconeer received a great beefy update on Xbox and PC that fixed numerous pesky bugs, improved those already GORGEOUS storms, tuned some visuals and much more.
Additionally, after release there was a request from several fans for Brazilian Portuguese language support, we’ve heard you – and can happily confirm that text localisation has been added for this!
Go ahead and download the new update and get back out into the Great Ursee!
May is Mental Health Awareness month, and there’s no better time to fundraise for worthwhile causes!
Video Game charity Safe In Our World are doing JUST THAT! And their week long celebration of video games and fundraising to help raise money for their initiatives is well under way!
We sat down with the SIOW team last week to discuss the #safertogether campaign and to put some names and faces to the incredible folks behind the scenes, if you missed it, you can find it right here!
#WiredLive charity stream
Here’s the schedule for the rest of the week – and you may have just spotted that tomorrow we’ll be joining the SIOW on #WiredLive to explore the universe in No Mans Sky! (This WILL be replacing our usual Thursday stream this week!)
We have a Tiltify open RIGHT NOW that is collecting donations into the SIOW pool, with some fiendish forfeits for the team on every penny raised – want to see the #wiredlive gang get pied on stream? Join them in some community shows? Challenge them to perform video game feats and much more? Then feel free to contribute to the fundraiser – every stretch goal will unlock even more content both DURING and AFTER our super long charity stream on Thursday the 13th!
You can see the donation page in support of Safe In Our World right here : Tiltify Page
