While we are surpassing 70 degrees in the northeast, I've been getting my fill of snow in Forza Horizon 3: Blizzard Mountain. Blizzard Mountain is a content pack that was released last December in the middle of the busy holiday and award season. It was generally overlooked here at OS; maybe you also missed the release of this expansion pack that twists the Forza formula, in many cases, for the better.

Blizzard Mountain isn't just the DLC's name, it's also the name of the newest locale you'll visit while tearing through Australia. And yes, there is snow and skiing in the land down under (don't worry, I had to check too). Unfortunately, this new area doesn't really integrate with the main map; you'll need to catch a helicopter and a loading screen to get to the new zone.

Joycity has teamed up with Ball Up and Risewear for their free 3on3 Freestyle basetball game, available for free on PlayStation 4. This allows fans to add more sneakers and apparel for their player in the game. Check out the new trailer here and read the full press release below.

JOYCITY JUMPS RIGHT ONTO PLAYSTATION® 4 WITH
3ON3 FREESTYLE ARCADE STREET BASKETBALL GAME

Exclusive, Free Downloadable PS4 Title Now Features Professional Streetball “Ball Up” Branded Jerseys and Shoes from Risewear

Joycity, a game developer and publisher, today announced that 3on3 Freestyle, its highly anticipated, fast-paced arcade-style half-court street basketball game, is now available exclusively on PlayStation® 4 (PS4). Also announced today are strategic partnerships with Ball Up, the #1 street basketball brand in America, and Risewear, an athleisure line featuring sneakers and apparel, to bring colorful Ball Up branded basketball jerseys and Risewear shoes into the game. 3on3 Freestyle, which features mythical U.S. playgrounds, a fun and energetic hip-hop soundtrack and an amazing street vibe – all as a tribute to today’s urban culture - is now available for free download on the PlayStation®Store.

In 3on3 Freestyle, fifteen colorful, unique and recognizable male and female basketball players each have their own abilities and moves, being able to play a specific position. Players can use crisp passes, mesmerizing dribbling or force their way through defenders to win the game. Teammates must wisely pick their players in order to build the right team according to their preferred playstyle and their opponents. In addition to having different physical and technical attributes, each character has a specific backstory, written with the help of legendary writer Evan Skolnick, which unfolds along the player’s progress.

Ezra Choi, producer at Joycity said: “Right from the beginning, everything clicked with Ball Up. As companies, we share the same values and they have played an amazing role in helping us develop the game – from its style, the music, characters, etc. For the launch trailer, we got ballers Grayson ‘The Professor’ Boucher, Guy Dupuy a.k.a ‘Easy J’ and Chris Staples to visit our studio and play their parts, and even more exciting, we will be announcing soon which players will be making an appearance in the game!”

Key Game Features:
  • Players: Each character wins points to unlock and upgrade their abilities, which includes dunks, long distance shots, stamina and more. Players must string their unique offensive and defensive skills into combos while keeping an eye on their team members’ capabilities.
  • Time Out: Teams can trigger the “substitution” mode for a limited number of times every game, allowing everyone to change their character. But, watch out, as this also means the other team of three players can pick new characters (or stick to the one they are already playing), adding to the strategic aspect of the game!
  • Couch Gaming: Local co-op online multiplayer option allows three gamers “on the same couch” to challenge players from around the world. It’s the new pizza night!
Game Modes - 3on3 Freestyle offers different game modes for unique experiences:
  • 3 v 3 online: With friends at home and alongside players from across the world
  • 1 v 1 online: Compete against another player in frantic duels
Demetrius Spencer, CEO, Ball Up added: "I'm really excited about our partnership with Joycity and to be able to incorporate both Ball Up and Risewear into 3on3 Freestyle for players to use.”

There has been a resurgence of creative sports game concepts thanks to independent developers over the last few years and the latest to break onto the scene is Disc Jam. Reminiscent of the 90’s game Windjammers, and evoking natural comparisons to recent smash hit Rocket League, Disc Jam appears to have a great deal of potential based on reaction to the beta that just came to a close.

This episode of the Press Row Podcast also includes discussion on everything Diamond Dynasty mode for MLB The Show 17 and a big gameplay patch that just released for Madden NFL 17.

Today, Liverpool FC announced Peter Moore as their new CEO. Moore, a huge Liverpool fan, has landed what might be his dream job.

Moore, currently the Chief Competition Officer for EA, will start his new job in June.

Quote:
"Liverpool-born Moore will take up his new role in June and report directly to the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.

The 61-year-old is currently chief competition officer at Electronic Arts, based in the United States, and will move to Liverpool to join the club in the summer. His nearly 10 years at EA have seen him in a number of leadership positions, including chief operating officer and president of EA SPORTS.

Moore has previously held senior roles with Microsoft, SEGA and Reebok. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Keele University in the UK and a master’s degree from California State University.

The appointment completes a 10-month transition plan by FSG and finalises the senior management structure at the club."

Moore's departure comes as eSports has begun an upward swing in sports gaming. The new head of EA's competition division will certainly play a huge role in how all of EA's titles respond to the growing market.

We'll be keeping an eye on it.

UPDATE: (2-28) Andrew Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, has posted a thank you note at EA, including some details on the leadership transition.

Quote:
In the weeks to come, Peter will continue to guide EA’s Competitive Gaming Division in its mission to make stars of all of our players. Peter has built a fantastic team that is now running dozens of global tournaments and events with millions of players. With more exciting expansion plans on the horizon, Peter will be working with the teams to drive a leadership transition before he returns to the UK this summer.

With the trade deadline now behind us, talk has shifted to what this means for the rest of this season and beyond. Murmurs about the future of Jimmy Butler and Paul George will be silenced, at least for now. Instead, we can shift the conversation to something a little more substantial, and that is to consider which teams did the most to help improve future.

But these trades have an impact on something far more important than that: how does it change who we use in NBA 2K17? Let’s take a look...

The official website has posted some MLB The Show 17 Franchise mode and Pave Your Path RTTS details. A lot of it is stuff we already know, but we should start hearing much more about the modes soon, more specifically on March 7, 9 and 14.

With that said, another livestream on Twitch is scheduled for Thursday, going over presentation and commentary improvements.

PAVE YOUR PATH IN ROAD TO THE SHOW
  • For the first time, Road to The Show takes you beyond the walls of the stadium with Pave Your Path.
  • Take your character on an epic odyssey through the world of a professional MLB player. Control your career and write your own Hall of Fame story both on and off the field.
  • Interact with coaches, managers, representatives and more as you make off-the-field decisions that can affect your career in unpredictable ways.
  • CHOOSE WISELY. Anything is possible on the Road to The Show, but nothing is promised.
FRANCHISE MODE - MORE CONTROL, LESS TIME
  • Make your moves and plan your perfect strategy as you take control of an entire MLB franchise. Choose what tactics to employ and where. Take over Coaching, Player Development, and GM duties. Or easily have your staff auto manage them with the flick of a toggle.
FRANCHISE LAUNCH PAD PUTS YOU IN CONTROL OF HOW MUCH TIME YOU SPEND PLAYING AND HOW YOU RUN YOUR TEAM.
  • CRITICAL SITUATIONS prompts you to take the plate in late-inning, critical situations so you have a direct effect on the standings even without playing full games. You’ll also get prompted to complete statistically significant games like hitting for the cycle or no-hitters.
  • QUICK MANAGE puts you in complete control of all managerial decisions during a game, while finishing full games in a short amount of time. Jump back and forth between gameplay and Quick Manage and only play in what you decide are the most important at-bats.
  • IF YOU’D PREFER TO SHUN RESPONSIBILITY AND JUST HIT SOME HOMERS, the updated Player Lock makes it easier than ever to pick a player on your team and play short Road to The Show style games in Franchise Mode.
