Black Friday Blitz promotion now underway in Madden NFL 17 Ultimate Team

blackfridayblitzmut17

While the Thanksgiving program in MUT remains open minus the Ultimate Feast portion, EA Sports has just rolled out a brand new one coinciding with Black Friday that includes some big potential rewards that will be active until the same endpoint on November 29.

Black Friday Blitz currently doesn’t have a full Solo Challenge campaign available. Instead there’s one limited time solo that awards a pack with 3 Blitz Tickets. Blitz Packs are being sold for 50,000 Coins or 500 Points (equivalent of $ 5). They contain 5 Blitz Tickets, 3 Gold or better players, 3 team items, and 250 Contracts.

Completing the new set of 10 Objectives unlocks a Blitz Pack and each individual one delivers a Blitz Ticket. There is also now a ‘Leftovers’ set within the Thanksgiving promo where trading in 5 food items will return a single Blitz Ticket. Those tickets can be used in Blitz Sets for card packs or players. There are 30 sets that will open, each for a very limited number of hours, at designated scheduled times through Monday.

Deal on Pro Evolution Soccer 2017

pes20170708

While most sports games see considerable discounts at retailers within weeks of release, Pro Evolution Soccer is the rare one that lags far behind with any price drop given that it doesn’t move a great deal of copies in North America. Amazon today though has the latest game in the series for $ 40 on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There has been no sign given that PES 2017 will be found for cheaper anywhere later this week.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 received a 9/10 review and is arguably the top of the class as far as gameplay goes in the genre. The drawbacks are licensing-related (if making a choice, go with PS4, since creations can be shared there and not on XB1) and that there hasn’t been much creativity or innovation with its modes in recent years.

Details on the fourth patch for NBA 2K17

nba2k17giannis

The fourth post-release patch for NBA 2K17 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and should reach PC in the near future. The earlier updates made to the game have addressed the ability to release roster updates, added PS4 Pro support, fixed the shot meter and various bugs, and tweaked gameplay and presentation. Despite that major issues have remained most notably related to CPU defensive AI and the game’s online Pro-Am mode.

The new patch doesn’t note any changes to the big defensive AI concerns that have been highly discussed by the community and also doesn’t claim to have fixed the connection problems plaguing Pro-Am. Instead it focuses heavily on MyPark gameplay adjustments while fixing the bug that prevented passing icons from displaying with PS4 Pro systems. 

General

♦The Hornets will now have their correct court projection during the pre-game presentation.
