Twitch star Dr Disrespect has revealed another update to his custom Rogue Company map as The Arena has started to really take shape as the streamer’s home away from home. 

Though he has made a name for himself while dominating the streaming world, Dr Disrespect’s roots live in map design. Specifically, as the Two-Time regularly lets his fans know, he worked on several maps for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare – including Horizon and Solar.

While he focuses on streaming and dominating Warzone these days, the Doc does slip back into his map designing days every so often. 

Prior to the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, he mocked up his own close-quarters Gunfight map and now has his eyes on bringing his streaming home – The Arena – to life in Rogue Company.

The Doc previously informed the Rogue Company devs that he was interested in making a map and quickly set to work making The Arena a reality. He dropped a first look not long after, but now he’s started to really flesh things out.

The streaming superstar dropped two new images of the map on his Twitter on September 17. “Looks like the Arena is making progress. Millions in line already,” he said, tagging the Rogue Company team.

The Doc takes pride of place in one photo, with an image of himself on a wall surrounded by his signal call of “Ya, Ya, Ya.” In the other pic, he’s got an elevator to the VIP section of the Arena complete with his own logo signaling whether it’s going up or down. 

Just over a week later, Doc dropped more images of The Arena, including a shot of the concession stand, which sadly appears closed, an arcade, and “The La Casa” club, all playing off longtime jokes from his streams.

For instance, in the Arcade shot, the center box features branding for a game called “Raul’s Revenge,” an obvious nod to the Two Time’s FIFA prowess and one of his favorite callouts.

 

The Two-Time and Rogue Company devs probably have a few finishing touches that need to be put on the map before its ready, but, the chance to chase enemies through the halls of The Arena come to life doesn’t seem too far away.

Fans will have to keep an eye out for further updates coming soon, so be sure to stick with us on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates for all the latest Rogue Company news and to keep up to date with Doc’s progress on ‘The Arena’ as it comes to life.

PlayStation boss shares bad news for those who want a PS5 on launch day

If you were thinking about waiting until launch day to pick up a PlayStation 5, you might want to come up with another game plan, as the President and CEO Jim Ryan said in a recent interview that players who wanted to do just that might not be able to.

In today’s day and age, every piece of major technology that releases is available for pre-order. Especially in the game’s industry, most people can go to their favorite tech store, drop some or all of the money, and have a product reserved before it even officially releases.

That being said, there’s always a group of people that decides that that’s not what they want to do. They think that even if they aren’t able to secure a product before launch via a pre-order, they’ll be able to pick up one no problem on release day. If you were thinking about doing that with the PS5, however, you may want to reconsider.

Currently, pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 are sold out across all retail stores

According to Reuters, PlayStation CEO and President Jim Ryan stated that fans who want to buy a PS5 on launch day might have a difficult time, confirming the fears of those who weren’t able to secure a pre-order.

“It may well be that not everybody who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one,” Ryan said an interview with Reuters.

The PlayStation head apparently went on to say that they’ll be working hard to make sure that supply of the console meets the demand, although it’s worth noting that this this is more than likely PR speak and fans still shouldn’t hold their breath that they’ll be able to get one.

While this is awful news for those that were hoping to wait until day 1 to get their hands on the PS5, it shouldn’t be that surprising. Game consoles over the past couple decades are notorious for selling out quickly and considering how difficult it was to get a pre-order, this really shouldn’t be a shock.

As of October 27, 2020, pre-orders for both the standard and digital-only versions of the console are sold out at almost every retail store. Still, here’s hoping that this is a bit hyperbolic. If this is true, it might be many, many months before other players will be able to get their hands on at least a PS5, as it’s currently unknown whether another wave of pre-orders will be hitting stores.
