Dr Disrespect's battle royale game

Mustachioed FPS streamer Dr Disrespect has founded his own studio to develop a shooter to rival Warzone and Apex Legends. Here’s everything we know about Midnight Society’s project, and what the Two-Time’s very own battle royale game could look like.

Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, better known as Dr Disrespect, is one of the most popular streamers in the world. Known for his mullet, mustache, and shades, Dr Disrespect plays a variety of the most popular FPS games – although he offers intense criticism.

A former game developer, Dr Disrespect has now launched Midnight Society, a studio that’s developing a game to rival the most popular shooters and battle royale games.

Not much is known about the upcoming project, but we’re breaking down everything we know to piece together what Dr Disrespect’s battle royale game could look like.

What will Dr Disrespect’s game look like?

Dr Disrespect's battle royale building

Officially, we know that Dr Disrespect’s game will be a “PVP online multiplayer game” that’s built “from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5.” And while details are scarce at this stage, Dr Disrespect has teased that Midnight Society are developing a “vertical BR.”

From the concept art that Doc has teased, it appears that the action would take place over several floors, with fire acting as the ‘circle’ that pushes players together as more and more die off.

It will also take on a different style of development, for which they’ve coined the term ‘Day Zero Community.’ This will have players involved early in the development process where they could be “testing reload times and recoil patterns in a firing range or jumping in for the first-ever PVP sessions.”

It also looks like the game will have a ranked mode at launch, with the developers confirming that “the pros, the players, the teams, the content creators,” will get insight into “design decisions, feature prioritizing, and balancing discussions when that feedback could be used.”

What could Dr Disrespect’s battle royale be inspired by?

Dr Disrespect will play almost anything where you can shoot a gun, but he lives by the motto “Violence, Speed, Momentum,” and looks for it in the games he plays.

After finding success in PUBG, Dr Disrespect is all over anything in the battle royale genre and believes that traditional multiplayer games such as Halo Infinite needs a battle royale to survive. However, he’s been extremely critical of Warzone over the past year, slamming its aim assist, server issues, lack of map changes, audio, and more.

Looking at Dr Disrespect’s back catalog of games, it’s clear that the battle royale genre is where Doc’s heart lies and is most certainly going to be the focus of his own game. It should also seek to fix everything Doc has complained about in other shooters.

Dr Disrespect launched Midnight Society along with two industry titans, Robert Bowling and Quinn DelHoyo.

Bowling is a former Infinity Ward dev who oversaw the release of each game in the original Modern Warfare trilogy. He’s since worked with gaming and esports companies such as NRG and EA, but is now co-founder and Studio Head of Midnight Society.

DelHoyo is a former Gears of War and Halo developer who has held a number of roles such as Multiplayer Designer, Lead Weapons Designer, and Sandbox Designer. He’s now co-founder and Creative Director of Midnight Society.

Here’s the rest of the Midnight Society team:

  • Sumit Gupta – CEO and co-founder
  • Ryan Thompson – Gameplay Engineer
  • Eric Hallquist – Concept Artist
  • HB Duran – Marketing & PR

Bowling has also teased that “We’ve got an incredible team in the wings, several key hires still not announced (as they wrap up their current roles) and we’re just getting started.”

With the talent Dr Disrespect’s game has on board, we could see elements of Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Halo, with a focus on esports.

Dr Disrespect battle royale title

There’s no way of knowing what the title of Dr Disrespect’s battle royale game will be. The concept art is labeled as “Vertical BR,” but this is probably for internal use only.

The title could link to Dr Disrespect by being called ‘The Arena’ or something to that effect, or it may be separated from the Two-Time entirely.


To summarize, Dr Disrespect’s game:

  • Is a PVP online multiplayer game built on Unreal Engine 5
  • Is helmed by ex-Call of Duty and Halo developers
  • Could be a “vertical battle royale” that takes place across several floors of a skyscraper
  • Will involve the community in its development
  • Will have a focus on esports

How to enable low gravity Firing Range mode in Apex Legends

Apex Legends’ Firing Range has an array of secret modes, and it seems players have found yet another in the form of a low gravity state.

Published

For those who are looking to take a break from Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale grind and have some fun in the Firing Range with friends, this is how you can enable low gravity in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends can be a very competitive game, especially if you’re into grinding Ranked Leagues, but public lobbies can sometimes feel overwhelmingly sweaty.

If you’ve had enough of the competitiveness and coming across teams who look like they’re in the ALGS, perhaps it’s time to have some fun in the Firing Range.

Apex Legends valkyrie using jetpack

Apex Legends’ Firing Range is home to a vast amount of secrets, including a third-person mode, and even a mode where the standstill bots start moving and shooting back at you.

These modes were clearly put into the Firing Range by the devs, as they require specific steps to activate them. This low gravity mode, however, is more of a glitch, and only possible thanks to Valkyrie.

Upon Valkyrie’s arrival into the Apex Games, players noticed a glitch where the Legend would feel weightless after jetpacking and interacting with a zip-line. The low gravity mode in Firing Range is essentially this same feeling, but with a simple trick you can use it on any Legend and it lasts even after touching the ground.

How to activate low gravity in Apex Legends

Despite not being available for a while, the low gravity mode is back in the Firing Range in time for Season 12.

  1. First off, head to the Firing Range and play as Valkyrie.
  2. Next, fly into the air with her jetpack and let her fuel run out.
  3. As soon as her fuel runs out, quickly change Legend mid-air.
  4. If done successfully, after you have fallen, you should have low gravity enabled.

We recommend trying Pathfinder with this low gravity mode, as using his grapple with zero gravity is even more riveting than before, especially if you throw some Octane Launch Pads down too.

This low gravity mode has actually reminded players of a similar glitch in Titanfall 2, whereby using the Northstar Titan, players could get out while it was hoovering and low gravity would be enabled.

This is either a coincidence due to the same developers and game code, or this was actually left in the game as an ode to Valkyrie’s father’s Titan, the Northstar.

Either way, it’s great fun and an awesome way to mess around with friends in the Firing Range, especially while you’re waiting for new content like the Control LTM.

Gran Turismo 7 release date

Gran Turismo 7 will be the franchise’s first entry built for the PS5 and players are eager to get their hands on the realistic racing staple. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming game.

Fans of the franchise have had to wait a long time for the next iteration of Gran Turismo following Gran Turismo Sport’s release back in 2017. Racing game enthusiasts are excited to see what the franchise can do with the modern hardware of the PlayStation 5.

Gran Turismo games have always been lauded for their impeccable graphics and detail-oriented racing that focus on delivering a realistic experience.

With the PS5 at their disposal, let’s find out where the franchise will head next. Here’s everything you need to know to prepare for the worldwide release of GT7.

Gran Turismo release date

Gran Turismo 7 cars

Gran Turismo 7 will hit the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on March 4, 2022. Racing fans won’t have to wait much longer for the highly-anticipated new entry.

Like most games that were slated to release in 2021, global events delayed the production of Gran Turismo 7 from a 2021 release window to a 2022 release window.

Gran Turismo 7 trailers

Given the game was expected to release in 2021, there are several trailers that you can find for Gran Turismo 7. The Announcement Trailer clued us in on some new features to expect as well as showcased incredible graphics both during gameplay and through cinematics.

Gran Turismo fans were gifted a substantial State of Play trailer on February 2 that will surely generate some buzz amongst fans of the franchise one month away from launch. The latest trailer is a lengthy video that runs for about 30 minutes.

Players get a chance to witness vehicle tuning, exciting new motors, and a breakdown of all the key details of Gran Turismo 7.

GT7 cars and tracks

GT7 tracks and cars

Longtime fans of the franchise will be pleased to note that several tracks will be making their return to the franchise such as Trial Mountain circuit, Willow Springs, and Blue Moon Bay Speedway. Players can expect to receive over 90 tracks at launch which is a new record for the franchise.

Although we don’t currently know the identity of every single car expected to be in Gran Turismo 7, reports confirm that there will be over 420 cars in total. If you’re curious about inclusions, you can check out a list of the confirmed cars in GT7.

New hardware features coming to Gran Turismo 7

With the PS5 at their disposal, developers Polyphony Digital have ensured that they will utilize the new technology to the best of their abilities.

This brand new game will render in native 4K on PS5, locked in at 60 FPS. It is important to note that Polyphony does not plan to exceed 60 FPS due to the fact that most players do not own televisions capable of such enhanced performance.

The developers have all also stated that they are using the PS5’s DualSense controllers to provide the most immersive Gran Turismo examine yet.  Thanks to the PS5’s 3D audio and the controller’s haptic feedback, players will sense surrounding players on the track.

Adaptive triggers on the DualSense will also factor into the driving experience as inputs will take gradual braking and acceleration into account.

With March 4 fastly approaching, the excruciating wait for Gran Turismo 7 is almost over.
