Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War is set to be released on the 13th of November and will be compatible with the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, and PC.

It is the much-awaited sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops and is set in the eighties during the cold war. The story in Black Ops is inspired by actual events and features locations such as the Soviet KGB headquarters, Vietnam, and East Berlin.

Multiplayer features new and returning game modes and a new game mode called “Fireteam,” which can be played by up to forty players.

FIFA 21

Fifa 21 is due for release on the 9th of October for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and Stadia. It will then be released on the 10th of November for the Xbox Series X and the 12th of November for the PS5.

Fifa 21 is packed with features such as new agile dribbling, increased positional awareness to elevate footballers in-game intelligence, and creative runs such as directed runs, directed pass and go, and player lock.

It also has a re-imagined collision system and updates to the fundamentals of football throughout the game. There are in-depth detailing and an improved career mode that improves training, matches, and transfers.

Assassins Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is due out on the 10th of November on Stadia, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5. It is scheduled to be one of the first games to hit the next generation of consoles.

Set in the Viking times, play the game as Eivor (either male or female) who is on a quest from Norway to England where you will fight battles, lead raids, create alliances with other leaders to bring victory much more.

You can completely immerse yourself in a range of activities such as hunting, fishing, drinking competitions, or even flyting competitions – a method of verbally devastating rivals in verse, so nearly a Viking rap battle!

Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite is the sixth Halo Series main entry and the fourteenth game overall. Its release was delayed in August 2020, and it has now been pushed back until 2021 with an exact date to be confirmed.

It is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PC. It is the most ambitious Halo game ever built and follows the Master Chief as he confronts the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced.

These are some of the best games due to come out in the next few months. Which ones will you play?

#10 New Problems with Minecraft Nether Update

This week on June 23, Minecraft released Nether update for Java & Bedrock editions.

Minecraft Nether Update adds new Nether biomes, materials, enemies, music & lots more.

I guess you already knew that.

Every time a new update comes, it comes at the expense of new & major problems.

That’s the same case with this update.

Now, let’s figure out its 10 major problems.

Minecraft Nether Update Major Problems

Problem 1 – Creative Mode

When playing the java version on PC, there’s an issue with the creative mode.

Whenever I used new armor or blocks, it was turning into stone blocks.

I don’t know but I tried the same again & again.

Everything went vain.

BTW, this problem isn’t limited to the java version of Minecraft.

An Xbox user reported quite a strange error in the subreddit thread.

He was unable to find any new block except allow, deny, and border blocks.

That’s not it.

Even the nether looks the same bedrock version of Minecraft.

Problem 2 – Ticking Areas

When players are in the Overworld, the Ticking Areas from Nether still have all the effects.

In fact, you can’t even see them in /tickingarea list, not unless all-dimensions are set.

As of now, this confirmed bug is detected in Windows 10 PC.

If you’re facing the same issue on any other device, let me know in the comments.

Problem 3 – Ghasts Spawn

Between Minecraft 1.14 and 1.16, Ghasts were completely changed internally.

They became from “Mob” to “Monster”.

By default, monsters are hardcoded to spawn at low light.

Now, the Ghasts spawn only when the light is below 8.

You cannot change them by making changes in JSON based rules.

And btw, the issue is reported for many platforms.

Problem 4 – Camera Issue

In the java edition of Minecraft Nether Update, it possible to pass-through –

  • Glass.
  • Glass Panes.
  • And Iron bars.

using 3rd person camera view.

However, the same option isn’t yet available in the Bedrock edition 1.16.0 update.

At present, this issue is confirmed for the Xbox One gaming console.

Problem 5 – Instant game crash.

Minecraft is reportedly crashing whenever a user tries to use a fill command of walls.

The crash is happening instantly.

The latest crashing bug was first reported on Xbox one with v1.16.0.68 beta & now recently released a 1.16.0 update.

You can check this bug on your gaming console. All you’ve to do is –

  • Use /fill command.
  • As a fill block, use walls.
  • Use the command to make sure the walls will connect as soon as the command is complete.
  • Now, check if the game crashed or not.

If it did then do let me know in the comments section or report it officially to Mojang.

Problem 6 – Witch hat

Several Windows 10 PC users have confirmed that witch hat from character creator isn’t following head movements.

Not only this, but some users also reported that even their fake villager’s nose got frozen because of this.

Problem 7 – Entity Drop Loot

A Nintendo switch user reported that the Entities drop loot option isn’t working in the latest Minecraft Nether Update.

The user turned off “Entities Drop Loot” option in the world creation menu.

However, even after disabling-enabling the option again & again, mobs dropped their loot.

Problem 8 – Offhand animation

Multiple users reported offhand animation related problems with all the zombies (except drowned).

So, it means, every time a zombie has an item in its offhand, it tends to position it correctly.

As if it is a real player.

Later when the zombies are attacking an object, it crosses its arms to make it look like they are charging a bow.

And btw, this issue is reopened after affecting Minecraft version 1.14.60 Hotfix.

Problem 9 – Chunk loading

After the latest 1.16.0 Minecraft Nether Update, several users reported problems related to random and slow chunk load.

As a result of this, there’s a major problem when flying with elytra or flying around in the creative mode.

Not only this, it gets a hell of difficulty in traversing the world.

As far as I know, this issue is mainly reported by Nintendo Switch and iPad pro-2018 users.

Problem 10 – Map pointer

Now comes the final major problem that came with Minecraft Nether Update.

This time, its map pointer causing the havoc.

It’ll work fine.

As long as you’re near the edge of the map, you’re fine.

However, the moment you try to approach the edges, the map pointer jumps straight to a random spot.

And later it stops moving all of a sudden.

BTW, it’s not happening one or two times.

Every time you try to go to edges, you get the same result.

Final Words

These are some major problems that the developers need to fix for a smooth gaming experience.

Besides, there are several other minor issues reported. However, none of them creates a major problem in Gameplay.

By chance, if I missed any major issue in the latest Minecraft Nether Update, do let me know about it in the comments section.

That’s all for now. I’ll update once there’s a solution to these major problems. In the meanwhile, take a look at ultimate Minecraft Modpack Launcher collection.
