Control a Car from Anywhere in the World with #TweetForSpeed Campaign
Help clear the fog from the map of Dying Light: The Following and reveal what's in store with the #TweetForSpeed hashtag. Let's see how fast the slot car can go!
You most likely heard of crowd-funding, people from around the world, total strangers to each other putting their cash on the line, in the hopes the game get finished, but in this case the new expansion for Dying Light is almost ready to appear for us to grab, and the developers have decided to come up with a cool crowd-sourcing game to play, the more you Tweet their special #hashtag, the more of the map you will be able to see, so everyone get together now and starting tweeting with #TweetForSpeed so we can see the world!
In the era of smart homes, smart heating, heart rate monitoring, and the possibility to connect almost anything to the internet; video game developer Techland made an even bolder move and created a never before seen experiment in the form of a Twitter campaign that will clear the fog from the map of the upcoming Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition.
This is how the event is described by Michał Napora, the game's Community Manager:
"The idea came from the current trend of connecting anything and everything to the internet.
We thought why not let anyone with a Twitter handle use the hashtag #TweetForSpeed to make a real difference in the lives of all Dying Light fans.
Every tweet with this hashtag will make our specially modified slot car go around on its track and by doing so, it reveals more parts from the new map of the upcoming Dying Light: The Following ahead of its release.
The further the car goes, the more will be revealed of the map of the already highly anticipated Dying Light: The Following for the both the fans of the game and newcomers alike."
As this is an urgent appeal and there are a lot of Dying Light fans in need, we would like to urge you to go crazy with the tweets and even if you just feel like sending a tweet to make a little car go around its track, follow and tweet us @DyingLightGame with the hashtag #TweetForSpeed and watch the action unfold on our live Twitch broadcast at http://www.twitch.tv/techland.
Dying Light: The Following will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC from February 9, 2016.
So what do you think of their latest viral idea to promote their game, it is not the first time they done crazy stunts like this.
The famous rapper calls out Bill Gates over Xbox Live downtime issues!
An Xbox Live outage has left thousands of gamers frustrated - but one angry user (Snoop Dogg) decided to take his complaint straight to the top.
Snoop Dogg loves his Xbox One, he is always tweeting, instrgram'ing about his Xbox experiences and sharing videos with his followers, but this time he got very angry over all the downtime Xbox Live servers have been having recently, with even yesterday another long 4+ hour outage, and as such decided to call out Bill Gates over it, and shared an epic 15-second rant regarding the Xbox Live issues, and even goes as far as saying he just might switch his love over to the PlayStation if this shit is not fixed up asap by great Microsoft King.
Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg loves his Xbox - he attended the Xbox One launch event two years ago, and he posts videos of the games he plays all the time, from "FIFA" to "Madden" and more.
But when Xbox's servers go down, Snoop is anything but down.
On Wednesday, after Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners were unable to play any online games for 4+ hours due to a server outage, Snoop Dogg posted a video telling Microsoft - and its founder Bill Gates - to "fix your s-t."
Attached below is the his epic 15-second video but be warned it does contain NSFW language, so don't blame us if you get upset from watching it, but if you do, what do you think about the whole issue, is it time for Microsoft to finally fix their Xbox Live servers, or are people just getting too upset over it all.
Xbox is now looking into the issue, but told the stunned father that the bill will stand for now!
An Ontario dad was stunned after he received a bill for nearly $8,000 in Xbox charges just two days before Christmas.
Lance Perkins is shown above flipping through a printout of the more than $8,000 in credit card charges he was issued after his 17-year-old son made a series of in-game Xbox purchases without his knowledge and now he is warning parents online and via the media to be more careful and keep an eye on what their kids are doing, as so far his discussion with Microsoft has gotten noplace and bill still stands as-is, as such he has decided: 'There will never be another Xbox system - or any gaming system - in my home,' Lance Perkins said to CBC earlier this week, below is all the sad details of this yet another one of many of having a huge bill on their credit card due to 'micro-transactions'.
According to CBC, Lance Perkins of Pembroke, Ont., was charged $7,625.88 after his 17-year-old son used his credit card for in-game purchases in one of the Xbox FIFA games.
"It floored me. Literally floored me, when I'd seen what I was being charged," Perkins told the news site.
The father claims the teen "thought it was a one-time fee for the game," and "never believed he was being charged for every transaction, or every time he went onto the game."
After contacting his credit card company, Perkins was informed that nothing could be done unless he wanted to charge his son with fraud. The father then contacted Xbox, arguing that his son is a minor.
Xbox is now looking into the issue, but told Perkins that the bill will stand for now.
"Until I actually hear from them, it's actually very discouraging," the dad said.
According to VideoGamer.com, FIFA games allow users to buy additional players for their team by using FIFA Points. These points are an in-game currency that can be bought using real money.
However, to monitor this and other in-game purchases made by kids, Xbox offers built-in parental controls. In regards to Perkins' bill, Microsoft, Xbox's parent company, emphasized in a statement that these features are meant to prevent incidents like this from happening.
"Purchases made using a parent's payment account are legitimate transactions under the Microsoft Services Agreement," the company said. "We encourage parents to use the many platform and service features we make available to prevent unapproved charges."
Since Perkins' story was reported, it has made its way on to Reddit, where users have been calling out the teen's ridiculous excuses for not knowing any better.
"Lol, he thought it was a one-time charge? Oh, even though you have to fund your wallet amount and it asks you to confirm multiple times," one wrote. "Flat out lying hoping Microsoft will feel bad and refund them. I wouldn't, the kid is 17. Old enough to understand the consequences."
Despite this, others sympathized with the boy and shared stories from their own experience. "I did this when I was 13 but it wasn't on FIFA," one said. "I just kept buying random shit from the marketplace and eventually after spending 2,400 quid of films, trailers, music videos and dlc my dad finally notices and calls up his bank to cancel it ahahahaha was so lucky to get away with it."
It's true that this isn't the first time a child has racked up a huge bill for in-game purchases. Just last week, a story broke about a seven-year-old UK boy who charged more than $8,000 to his dad's credit card while playing an iTunes game.
In another instance from 2013, seven-year-old Canadian twin boys were charged $3,000 for their in-app purchases while playing on their mother's iPad.
As you can see above, and as many of long-time loyal forum members know here, we have reported on these news stories over the recent years many times, and incidents like these are more common than people might think, which is why parents must be wary, but what do you think the big gaming companies should do about it, more rules, or is it the parents job and not theirs to worry about?
How about that? An insanely cool story trailer giving a glimpse of the places and people you'll come across in Dying Light: The Following. Watch it below right here on MaxConsole!
Only one month to go before we can all enjoy the big expansion to the very popular video game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Today, Techland added another piece to the puzzle with the release of a new story trailer for its upcoming expansion Dying Light: The Following. The video offers a glimpse into the ravaged yet mysterious world players will encounter as well as a first-ever look at some of the new characters they will meet.
"In the expansion, we're aiming for a bit of a different mood to the story," explains producer Tymon Smektała. "We all love some old good mystery, whether it's X-Files or Twin Peaks, so that's an element we're introducing to our world in Dying Light: The Following."
Last month Techland offered a sneak peek to Dying Light: The Following's opening storyline in its story teaser.
Dying Light: The Following will be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 9th, 2016. The expansion will be available as downloadable content (priced $19.99), as part of the Season Pass, and as part of Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition. All the buying options are explained in the infographics on the official website.
So are you going to grab the expansion for Dying Light, or have you not been enjoying this game very much at all?

Now Available to Play in GTA Online for PS4/XB1/PC
RockStar Games is very pleased to announce that they have added a brand-new addition to the GTA Online Adversary Modes for your PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Consoles, plus also of course PC Gaming Rigs.
Bella this morning dropped by our MaxConsole News HQ Desk, and left us this wonderful note that they have been busy updating the very popular Grand Theft Auto Online universe and have recently added a new special mode called 'Every Bullet Counts', and below is all the amazing details of this new high-paced action mode, along with a couple of screenshots to get you to try it out, and best of all it is available starting right now on your new generation of consoles the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, along with the even more popular PC.
Today, we are pleased to announce we have a brand-new addition to the GTA Online Adversary Modes for PS4, Xbox One and PC. ‘Every Bullet Counts' is an intense Last Man Standing variant with a unique twist to keep players on their toes and constantly on their guard.
With no safe place to hide, four players go up against each other in a confined space with a very limited arsenal: just one marksman pistol and two bullets to take out three opponents. Tactics are key here - once players have exhausted their ammo, they'll need to resort to crafty melee attacks with their Hatchet or Machete to make it out alive. Campers and lurkers be warned, though: anyone staying still for more than 5 seconds will have their blip revealed on the map, making them an easier target for enemies who are wisely moving from cover to cover. This game mode also features a few of its own new locations in GTA Online, including the De Santa family mansion in Rockford Hills and the Tequi-la-la nightclub.
To make it as easy for players to dive in to this new mode, we've set up a Featured Playlist which will let players participate in all four of the new maps one after another with just a single button press during the GTAV Launch screens.
Make sure to tune in to see us playing Every Bullet Counts and other Adversary Modes on Friday at twitch.tv/rockstargames or youtube.com/rockstargames at 5pm Eastern, with special guests to be announced.
Please find new screens attached and let us know if you have any questions.
So what do you think, are you glad that RockStar Games keeps updating the GTA Online world, and best of all most updates are basically free, not like Destiny when they expand their universe, and does all this GTA Online updating keep you playing the game?
