I was just talking to a few people about how these gaming events change the way we live, the games we buy, the series we get interested in, etc. Have it be E3, GamesCon, or QuakeCon 2017 its also important to be in the “know” in terms of when these events are happening. If you’ve never heard of QuakeCon I found that a little surprising since its been around since 1996, but if you haven’t, that’s okay, that’s why sites like Gamers Elite exist to give you information you might not be aware of. Below we will be talking about what QuakeCon 2017 is, when it will be, where its being held, and the special events that will be available at this event...

Battlefield 1 New Mode Alpha Test

Dice recently surprised us with news of a new mode in Battlefield 1. The mode is called Incursions. Its supposed to be a competitive type mode, but only certain people will be able to try it out soon – for the beta of course.

Incursions is a mode that has 5×5 players, its considered to be a very fast and strategic mode ie; you can’t just go in there runnin’ and gunnin’, you have to put some forethought into the game. According to Dice vehicles will be able to be used in the new mode, however, from what it sounds like, they will not be as prevalent as they are in the regular modes with vehicles.

DICE thinks Incursions to be especially fun to watch. This will be accomplished in part through modifications to the scoring system “where every point matters...

Crackdown 3 Release Delayed

Ah! Sad news, guys. The Crackdown 3 release has been delayed. Unfortunate, but true. It was supposed to launch on November 7th and it was also supposed to be available with the Xbox One X release date.

However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time[…]Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

That was a quote by Shannon Loftis the pub manager for Microsoft Studios.

3 games were initially announced to coincide with the release of the Xbox One X; Crackdown 3, Forza 7 and of course C...
