The Wired Weekly Update - 22/03/2021

This Week - A Direct On The Horizon

Hello again Wired family! It's Monday and that means it's time for your weekly dose of all things Wired!

Before we dive in - we're re-tooling our video versions of these updates. We want them to be the best video you see every week and because of that we are putting them on hold until post Direct so we can give them our full attention.
They'll be worth the wait!

And with that out the way, we've got SO MUCH to cover today - so let's get to it!

  • Avicii Steam Patch 
  • Best Campaign Nomination!
  • Wired Direct Countdown
  • #WiredLive Schedule
  • TLDR
  • Sales And Competitions


Avicii Invector Steam Patch

A brand new patch was released on the Steam version of Avicii Invector last week.

It features a list of input and calibration changes that were made in the  recent Stadia version of the game, as well as a reset of the leaderboards in order to combat a few naughty folks who had cheated their way to the top!

Full patch notes are as follows :

  • New Controller remapping
  • New input calibration
  • Input related settings are saved per device so you can have different settings among players when playing multiplayer. (there is always one person wants to invert the y axis ;)
  • Various bug fixes
  • Timing windows adjusted to be more forgiving to compensate for inaccurate input timing on some systems

You can download the patch on Steam right now and get back to score chasing! Updates on all other consoles will be coming soon, we'll let you know when we have a date!

Best Campaign Nomination!

We get to blow our own trumpet a little bit here! We are incredibly proud of The Falconeer (Which if you remember will be in the running for an ACTUAL BAFTA LATER THIS WEEK ON THE 25TH!). But we are equally proud of our marketing campaign for it too!

It turns out that was pretty fond of it too, and has included it in the running for the 'Best PR & Marketing Campaign 2020' award, alongside some equally incredible campaigns such as EverSpace and Fall Guys!

Obviously there have been some incredible PR campaigns over the past year, but it speaks to the creativity and talent of our staff that we are in the running as one of the best! We can't wait for April 15th when the awards take place! 


Wired Direct Countdown

#WiredLive Schedule

Last week saw Tegan taking her first tentative steps into the shadows of Dormont (and disclosing that she's actually terrified of the movie Chicken Run - nah we don't quite get it either)
