Last weekend the Game On AUS team launched GOA Discord PUBG Casuals, an initiative designed to get the GOA community together on discord every Friday night for some great banter and custom server PUBG server shenanigans, broadcast on the official Game On AUS twitch channel.
We also may have mentioned that there may be some prizes involved – well now thanks to XBox and the very generous GOA Fireteam, we’re introducing the Wheel of Keys!

It could be a three month subscription to XBox Live, a three month subscription to XBox Games Pass, or any one of a number of Steam keys for a brand new game to add to your library.
OpenAI Takes Top Ranked DOTA 2 Players To The Cleaners
Remember we mentioned in yesterday’s top 3 that OpenAI Five, the artificial intelligence engine backed by Elon Musk, was taking on five of the world’s best DOTA 2 players? OpenAI won, again.
For the second year in a row OpenAI has faced five top players at The International. Starting with a warm-up match against the audience, OpenAI cleaned house before setting its sights on a DOTA 2 team made up of Blitz, Cap, Fogged, Merlini, and Moonmeander, in a best of three contest.
OpenAI stormed through the first two rounds before the AI was given a handicap. The Humans took the final round.
OpenAI plays the equivalent of 180 years’ worth of games against itself every day to learn the best possible response to every situation.
If you’re keen on reading up on a little more, Game On AUS’ resident DOTA 2 champion Bruc3L33t wrote an awesome article about what OpenAI is all about.
Fallout 76’s Beta Will Actually Be The Full Game!
We think of Beta’s as demo’s these days, giving you just enough of the game to get a taste for it, usually sold as early access rather than what the Beta was traditionally designed for – breaking the game and providing feedback.
Well in an interesting development whilst reading through the beta FAQ for Fallout 76, we discovered that if all goes according to plan, the Fallout 76 Beta will actually be the full game, and you’ll be able to carry your progress across to release.
“Our current plan for the B.E.T.A. is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch,” it states.
The Fallout 76 Beta will take place in October and everyone who pre-orders the game gets invited to take part.
We’ve also learnt that purchase of the game on PC will not be available via steam, but only Bethesda.net. This isn’t to say it won’t happen, as Fallout shelter was initially released on Bethesda.net in July 2016 but eventually made its way to Steam in March 2017.
My best guess is that with a mostly online game like Fallout 76 appears to be, we’ll be expecting a lot of bug fixes and patch updates along the way, and this is Bethesda’s way of mitigating any community negativity on steam through the review system until they have a version they’re happy with.
