In Respawn’s mobile battle royale, Apex Legends Mobile, being able to successfully pull off the bunny hopping technique can make you extremely difficult to hit. This has created frustration in the community so it’s good to see Respawn finally address it with an upcoming nerf. The change will be made in the game’s next update.

Xbox Cloud Steaming will add mouse and keyboard support to its streaming service. This announcement was made by Xbox software engineer, Morgan Brown. During a presentation, Brown clarified that mouse and keyboard support for Xbox Cloud Gaming is coming and that developers should work on adding it to their games.
