Upsets Abound: Paris Eternal, Guangzhou Charge win Overwatch League’s Summer Showdown tournaments

In a weekend full of upsets, it was the Paris Eternal and the Guangzhou Charge left standing in the Overwatch League’s Summer Showdown tournaments. Paris won the North American tournament Sunday night by taking down the Philadelphia Fusion in a back-and-forth seven-map match. In the Asian tournament, the No. 2 Guangzhou Charge unseated the heavily favoured Shanghai Dragons early Sunday morning to win the region.

Paris entered the North America bracket as the eighth seed but defeated No. 9 Dallas and No. 4 Vancouver in the tournament’s first two rounds. In the semifinals, the Eternal upset San Francisco, North America’s undisputed top team heading into the weekend, in a thrilling five-map set. Led by dynamic rookie Yeong-han “SP9R1E” Kim’s Genji play, the Eternal’s aggressive style proved too much for Philadelphia to overcome.

Earlier on Sunday, the Guangzhou Charge beat top-seeded Shanghai Dragons 4-2 to win the Summer Showdown Asia bracket. The Charge went up 3-0 before Shanghai staged a furious comeback, winning two straight maps before Guangzhou halted the Dragons’ momentum on the Blizzard World map. The Charge are a young but immensely talented team with players hailing from Korea, China, Spain, and the United States.

Visit overwatchleague.com to see all results in both brackets from this weekend.

The Overwatch League returns Friday, July 17 with qualifiers for its final regular season tournament, the Countdown Cup. For details on how that tournament is structured, click here. The rest of the 2020 regular season schedule is available here.

Wood Entertainment to release Tony Hawk video game documentary on Aug. 18th, 2020

The Birdman soars this Summer

Wood Entertainment is proud to announce the August 18 digital/VOD release of the highly anticipated documentary feature PRETENDING I’M A SUPERMAN – THE TONY HAWK VIDEO GAME STORY. Wood Entertainment acquired Worldwide rights to the film in May at the Mammoth Film Festival in a deal negotiated between CEO Tara Wood and Producer Ralph D’Amato (“Tony Hawk Pro Skater” series, “Gun”) on behalf of D’Amato Productions.

Arriving just ahead of the eagerly-awaited reboot of the $1.4 billion Tony Hawk Pro Skater video game series coming this September, this definitive documentary from Director Ludvig Gür tells the story of skater turned video game mogul Tony Hawk, and the near extinction of skateboarding culture before exploding back into the mainstream in the early 2000s.

“PRETENDING I'M A SUPERMAN is a robust, real-life story of our successful videogame series as told by those who created it, and many who were inspired by it” said multi-record-breaking skateboarder and documentary subject Tony Hawk.

"I’m really excited to partner with Wood Entertainment” said director Gür. “It’s been a long journey making the documentary and I’m stoked it will finally be released for skateboarding and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans worldwide. The art form and video game had an enormous impact on Generation Y / Z and the story behind it is even more fascinating.”

In 1999, the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater shook the world when it sold 9 million copies upon release and changed the skateboarding scene forever. Pretending I’m a Superman is the story of the skaters and developers who came together to create the best-selling game as well as a look into how skateboarding became a part of the mainstream.

Featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews with the legendary skater Tony Hawk as well as industry stars interviews with Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, and Jamie Thomas, Gür takes audiences through an intimate yet extraordinary journey, chronicling the meteoric rise of skate boarding’s most famous name.

“Tony Hawk has one of the most inspiring stories ever told, from groundbreaking skater to gaming mogul” said Wood. “We are thrilled to present it to its worldwide audience."

Activision "evaluating additional platforms" for Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

Crash and burned

You most likely know that Activision recently revealed Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, a new installment in the long-running series. Sadly, a Switch version was not announced, and the reveal only confirmed PS4/XB1 versions. Could a Switch version happen sometime down the road?

While Activision isn't getting into specifics, it does seem like they're looking into releases on other platforms in the future. An Activision rep had this to say.

“We are still evaluating additional platforms for a future date. Stay tuned for more information.”

Now Switch isn't the only platform to be considered, mind you. There's PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X as well. Switch certainly has a shot, but it's not anywhere near confirmed.

The Race Continues! Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Rolls Out Bonus Content and New Features Post-Grand Prix

The race is STILL on

The Gasmoxia Grand Prix has come to an end, but the race goes on! New content* from Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is available now, including the bonus ‘Beenox Pack’ of content that will be automatically unlocked for players as a thank you for their unwavering support through all of the Grand Prix seasons.

All players should have to do is download the update while their console is connected to the internet and the content will be available. Players are also invited to try their hands at new challenges, compete against best track times from the Beenox team, explore new content in the Pit Stop, unlock a secret ‘crate’ character and more.

Beenox is putting its bumper sticker all over the bonus new content pack, with Beenox-themed skins, kart, paintjob and wheels, and, for players who haven’t already unlocked them, an automatic unlock of popular characters Crunch and Geary (the latter will also be fully decked out in a legendary skin for the first time ever!). Players can now go head-to-head with the very best as they race against new ghost times in the Time Trial mode that represent the fastest laps completed by Beenox’s development team, with the reward being an amazing new set of Legendary Wheels. For beating best times by Oxide and Velo, racers will be awarded new signature decals, along with a Champion Kart (if not already unlocked) for those who prevail across all of Oxide’s Time Trials. Players who have already beaten these times will have this content unlocked automatically.

Perusing the Pit Stop, players will find three new characters, two new karts, a selection of new Legendary Skins, kart customization items and more. Due to popular demand, Beenox is rewarding players with a new version of Rilla Roo, dubbed “Fixed Rilla Roo”, who will be in the Pit Stop rotation for players who haven’t unlocked him yet. Players who have unlocked the old version of Rilla Roo will automatically get “Fixed Rilla Roo” while being able to keep the old one. Finally, items from each of the eight CTR Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix seasons will also reappear and rotate through the Pit Stop.

Recognized as the Best Sports/Racing Game at The Game Awards 2019 and Best Racing Game of 2019 by IGN, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will also introduce a new audio experience, where players can listen to each track’s soundtrack through the Options menu. The beloved Grand Prix-style challenges will be replaced with Wumpa Challenges, via rotating daily, weekly and monthly challenges that reward Wumpa Coins that players can use in the in-game Pit Stop. The ‘Ghost Hunt’ challenge type will return to Nina’s Nightmare track, the ‘Golden Wumpa’ challenge will remain, and a host of other fur-tastic updates are slated to roll out on March 26.

For a full rundown on all the new post-Grand Prix content, head over to the Activision Games Blog.
