EA Sports announced during the E3 2018 conference in June that it would release FIFA 19 later this year. Before that happens, the developer has announced that a demo version of the game can now be downloaded from multiple stores such as the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and EA's Origin. The demo includes a UEFA Champions League match, previously exclusive to PES, as part of the redesigned Kick-Off mode.
The UEFA Champions League mode presents the 10 biggest clubs in the world and you will be able to play a group stage match with one of the following teams:
As mentioned above, there's the revamped Kick-Off mode which lets you play FIFA with other gamers through new match types, stat tracking, and more ways.
The demo also lets you play parts of The Journey: Champions before the game's official version rolls out on September 28. The Journey: Champions features Alex Hunter, Kim Hunter, and Danny Williams as its main playable characters, each with a unique storyline.
Finally, the demo includes new gameplay enhancements designed to help you control the pitch in any match. For example, you can change how you receive and hit the ball using the new Active Touch System. Other additions include the refreshed Dynamic Tactics system for setting multiple tactical methods, Timed Finishing for steering your fate in front of goal, and 50/50 Battles for deciding on the results for winning loose balls across the pitch based on user reactions and player attributes.
Samsung isn't done taking the wraps off of new devices this year. A little over a month after unveiling its latest flagship device, the Galaxy Note9, the company has announced that it will hold another event on October 11 to introduce another Galaxy device.
The South Korean tech giant is sending out an invitation to the said event, which will be available to watch via live stream on the company's website. Samsung, however, stopped short of revealing what device it will announce next month. Nonetheless, the upcoming phone is supposed to offer "more ways to express yourself than ever before."
In particular, the invitation carries the tagline "4x Fun", which could mean the upcoming device will boast four cameras. It's anybody's guess, really, though previous rumors point to the likelihood of Samsung announcing a device with four cameras, as speculated earlier this month by renowned leaker @UniverseIce in a tweet:
It's not certain whether the four lenses will be squeezed into a single camera module or grouped into two: both dual rear-mounted and front-facing cameras. Also, while it remains unclear what specific handset Samsung plans to unveil a few weeks from now, it is highly likely that the device in question is the next-generation Galaxy A series. To put things in context, the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ were announced in December 2017, so it's safe to assume Samsung could also introduce the next-gen Galaxy A series later this year.
We'll likely hear more updates about the upcoming Galaxy phone as the scheduled date looms near. In the meantime, tell us in the comments below what you expect Samsung will unveil in October.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout open beta for PC players is slated to begin tomorrow, with those who've pre-ordered the game gaining access later today at 10am PT. However, Blizzard has detailed another method to get early access other than pre-ordering the shooter, which involves watching Twitch streams.
Several popular Twitch streamers will be playing and promoting the battle royale mode from 10am PT to 2pm PT today, and all you need to do is at least catch one hour of a stream to gain early access yourself. Here are the participating streamers and their Twitch pages for easy access:
Remember that linking your Battle.net and Twitch accounts prior to watching the streams is a necessary step to accomplishing this, which can be done by heading over here. Moreover, pre-loads of the beta is already available on Battle.net as well, so there won't be any downtime between gaining access and playing.
As for console players, the Blackout mode's PlayStation 4 beta is already underway while Xbox One players can jump in beginning at 10am PT today, but both require pre-ordering the title. The beta will come to an end on all platforms on September 17 at 10am PT.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch in full on October 12, touting multiplayer, co-op, and battle royale modes.
With just a few more months to go until the Linux Mint team releases the next major update of its operating system, it has announced that the upcoming release has been dubbed ‘Tessa’. All of the codenames in the 19.x series should begin with 'T', while the second letter should progress further through the alphabet. Linux Mint 19.0, for example, is called ‘Tara’.
Wrapping up August, Clem Lefebvre, head of the Mint project, outlined some work the team has been doing to their software. The first improvement is to the Software Sources tool which has been given a new look similar to the welcome screen, it now uses an Xapp sidebar and a headbar. In addition, the optional sources section has been simplified and a new option is being planned to add debugging repositories.
Another big change that should make using the distribution more pleasant is that the contrast in the Mint-Y theme has been altered for better viewing. The changes are made based on feedback received after the release on Linux Mint 19 which said that some labels were too difficult to read. Writing about the contrast changes, Lefebvre said:
“The foreground colors were darkened (this is particularly visible here in the symbolic toolbar icons). The titlebar label is more pronounced as well, and the frame and contour of some of the widgets appear more clearly within the user interface.”
Linux Mint 19.1, when released, will be supported with updates until 2023. If you’re already running Linux Mint 19, the update will be made available via the Update Manager and it will be both easy and safe to perform.
