Since its launch in July 2016, Pokemon Go has been a strictly PvE affair – but that's about to change.
On the game’s official Twitter account, Niantic confirmed that Trainer Battles are coming to the game soon.
In additional Tweets, Niantic, revealed that Trainer Battles will involve three leagues: Great, Ultra, and Master. The leagues will be divided by CP, with the Great League capped at 1,500 CP per Pokemon, the Ultra League capped at 2,500 CP per Pokemon, and no limit on the Master League.
Filmmakers who want to receive funding from the British Film Institute (BFI) will have to abandon an old trope, as the BFI will no longer fund movies featuring villains with scars, reports the Telegraph.
The move comes as the BFI backs Changing Faces' #IAmNotYourVillain charitable campaign. The BFI is reportedly the first organization to support the project and is doing so in an effort to destigmatize facial disfigurements.
"Film is a catalyst for change," said BFI Deputy CEO Ben Roberts, "and that is why we are committing to not having negative representations depicted through scars or facial difference in the films we fund.”
DICE's core gameplay designer says changes are coming to both time-to-kill (TTK) and time-to-die (TTD).
Battlefield 5 launched last week, and players been vocal in their criticisms of TTD, saying that death currently feels too fast and frustrating with comparison to previous games in the series.
