The SITREP Radio crew are back to full strength for Episode 79. The Dollar Flu did not claim yet another victim last week, so Luke is back behind the mic and raring to get stuck into the hot topics of the week.

After a couple of weeks of “secrecy” where the majority, if not all, of Massive’s community team went dark while TwitchCon was underway and apparently a series of in-house workshops were taking place in Sweden there was a bombshell dropped during this weeks State of the Game broadcast. It was left to Petter to drop the bomb that PTS3 would indeed be the final PTS phase ahead of update 1.8, and will be closing on Tuesday 31st October 2017.

This took the community by surprise, to say the least. Some are keeping the faith, claiming Massive must know what they’re doing, while a lot of others are claiming this is too soon and update 1.8 is not ready considering this is the most content-rich update we have had since launch. Obviously Mike, Rob and Luke get well and truly stuck into this debate this week, as well as chatting over the other drips of news that have come out this week.

I've been a gamer ever since I can remember. I started with a Commodore64, then Amiga1200, and various PCs. Consoles I've owned include SNES, Wii, GameCube, Xbox 360 and every version of PlayStation to date. My most played games are Team Fortress Classic, Championship Manager, early COD titles (don't mention Black Ops or MW3!) as well as almost all of the Gran Turismo and GTA series'.
