Elder Scrolls Online is giving away a free minipet to Morrowind players

Pssst. Like free stuff? Me too. The Elder Scrolls Online is giving some free stuff away. It’s a free pet called the Dozen-Banded Vvardvark. “Vvardvarks might be the ill-advised result of Telvanni experiments, but they sure do make adorable pets,” ZeniMax quips. It is so ugly it is cute, and it’s a pun.

There’s a catch, of course; you have to own Morrowind to claim the freebie.

“To ensure you receive your free pet, you must log into the game while owning ESO: Morrowind at any point from now until Monday, May 21 at 2:59AM EDT (Sunday May 20 at 11:59PM PDT). If you logged in during the event period, you’ll receive this spiny-tonged little monster by May 29!”

As the studio reminds us, preordering Summerset, which launches in just a few weeks, will automagically unlock Morrowind, so if you were doing that anyway and really like aardvark minipets, now is the time. If you’re still on the fence, make sure you check out our Tamriel Infinium column, where our ESO columnist Larry Everett has been chronicling his hands-on time with the chapter on the PTS.

Gloria Victis is dirt cheap thanks to the Humble Bundle now – here’s the new trailer

Cutthroat PvP MMORPG Gloria Victis is currently featured as part of Humble Bundle’s War Gamez bundle, so you can snag it and a bunch of other war… gamez… for next to nothing right now. “It’s a perfect opportunity for everyone to join the conflict in the vast medieval open world, master their own skills in the non-target combat and loot the players defeated in epic PVP battles over towns and castles,” Black Eye Games says.

In recent weeks, the early access game has seen several updates, including the addition of first-person view, controller functionality, a rescaled PvP contribution ranking system, and a revamp of passive abilities. Moreover, the Sangmar Empire has been refreshed.

“Azebs, nomadic people inhabiting vast deserts, have united with Sangmarians and countless other tribes under the banner of the Sangmar Empire. The updated faction, one of 3 available, has been designed after the Byzantine Empire, with visible Roman inspirations. It comes with a brand new breathtaking capital city of Baalhammon, new questlines and unique equipment models.”

The new trailer is below.

Overwatch fights breast cancer with a pink Mercy

I hope that we can agree that pink is, hands down, an awesome color. It’s saucy, it’s edgy, and it goes so well with black. Pink is also the color that represents the fight against breast cancer, which I also hope we can agree is a worthy cause.

You know who else likes pink? Overwatch’s Mercy, who is sporting the color this month to do her part to bring healing to the real world. From now through May 21st, players can buy Mercy’s limited-edition skin and have all of the proceeds go toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

“Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% the proceeds that it receives from all Pink Mercy skin sales to BCRF, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 (USD),” the studio promised. “The total donation amount will be disclosed after the campaign concludes on May 21st.”

Players can also become involved this month by buying an actual Mercy t-shirt, logging in to unlock a free BCRF icon, and watch charity streams for sprays.

Fortnite’s Avengers Infinity War promo event is live today

Yesterday, Epic teased a Marvel Avengers Infinity War promo in Fortnite, and it wasn’t super clear who was getting the better end of that partnership. It’s live today, and I think the answer is… the players? Your goal is basically to beat down Thanos.

“Early in the match, a meteor will land in the storm safe zone, delivering the Infinity Gauntlet. Any player who uses the Infinity Gauntlet will transform into Thanos. Stats are recorded for this LTM and can be found in the Solo tab. If Thanos is eliminated, the Gauntlet will fall to the ground, free for the taking. If it sits unused for too long, it will disappear until another meteor appears. Last player standing will be the victor!”

Does any of this make a lick of sense? Not really, but yay video game crossovers.

Wizard101’s Doctor Who event is bigger on the inside

Someone over at KingsIsle is obviously a big Doctor Who fan, because Wizard101’s current event is a thinly veiled homage to that sci-fi series. Players are challenged to seek out the Professor and his five B.O.X.E.S., which look suspiciously like red-themed TARDISes.

“Besides a new journey though the Spiral, what does your Wizard have to gain from the Five B.O.X.E.S.?” the devs ask. “How about the first craftable mounts, the Digmoore Pogo Stick and Ravenwood Pogo Stick! You should also visit Rose Piper to learn crafting recipes for exclusive furniture items. Plus the Professor will lead you to epic rewards for your Wizard.”

Meanwhile at its sister game, Pirate101 is offering a discounted deal on a year subscription. From now through May 6th, you can secure 12 months of sub time for $60, which comes out to $5 a month. Not too shabby, even for penny-pinching pirates!

Enter to win a Neverwinter painted spider mount on Xbox One and PS4 from PWE and MOP!

To celebrate the arrival of the Lost City of Omu expansion for Neverwinter on console this week, PWE has granted Massively OP 20 Painted Spider mount keys to give away to our readers: 10 apiece for PlayStation 4 (Blue-Spotted version) and Xbox One (Tropic-Colored version). Arachnophobes should probably nope right out now!

“The visionary Suratuk is back at it again with a pair of limited run, custom- mounts. Freshly-coated and prepared to scurry into battle with the release of Lost City of Omu, these vicious arachnids didn’t become Blue-Spotted and Tropic-Colored without inflicting several bites on the artist.”

Both grant +50 movement speed and include two insignia slots. The codes can be redeemed only once per account and expire at the end of 2020, and the mounts are bind-on-pickup. Critically, these codes are redeemable on console only in the regions as outlined below, so if you’re a PC person, you can skip this one!

Final Fantasy XIV invites the community to design physical DPS gear

Thus far, Final Fantasy XIV has run three gear design competitions for the community, inviting players to design gear for tanks, healers, and magical DPS jobs. The winners of all three have already shown up in the game, to boot; winning designs have been implemented in subsequent patches, expanded to fill all of the various roles (the caster DPS design is the design being added for dungeon gear in patch 4.3). So how would you like to fill out the remaining gear designs?

The design contest for ranged and melee DPS has just kicked off, with the same rules as prior installments and a variety of prizes for players to enjoy. This time, players can enter for either category to be included, so if you have something in mind for Monk but not necessarily for Bard, you’ll submit it separately. No promises are made about when the designs will be added to the game after the contest, but our suggestion is to get drawing and put the designs out there if you’ve got a knack for costuming.

Elder Scrolls Online gives away free crown crates and subscription time

Ooh, you really like that word “free,” don’t you? Caught your attention, and now you’re down here in the body of the article, wondering how you can Get Yours? Well, far be it from us to get in your way; we are facilitators in such situations.

It is true, Elder Scrolls Online is preparing to run a bonus event from April 24th through the 30th. During this period, players will earn one free crown crate every day just by logging in to the game. If you’re faithful to do this for the full run, that nets you six free crates (which may hold cosmetics, boosters, mounts, and skins).

In addition, ZeniMax is offering a free week trial of ESO Plus to see if you like the benefits that a subscription brings to the table (although it should be noted that trial users will not get a monthly stipend of free crowns). The trial can be found under the “featured” section of the crown store.

Riders of Icarus runs dual events to get your attention

Hey, here’s an MMORPG we haven’t talked about in a while! Nexon’s Riders of Icarus is making a bid for players’ attention this week with a pair of spring events that offer both buffs and rewards.

First up is the Icarus’ Blessing server buff, which will run through April 26th. This constant buff will increase character XP, familiar XP, up the change of rares to drop, improve taming chances, and make the player stronger and tougher in battles.

Running from now through May 3rd is the Rider Returns event as well, designed to call back previous players who haven’t logged in anytime over the past two months. With this promotion, returning players will get a special reward every day for the first seven days he or she is back, including an aventurer’s package, 14 days of premium service, an outfit, a Maid Daveen pet, and a mecha cat mount.
