Believe it or not, Lenovo Legion came prepared for the stay-at-home life. In an effort to keep everyone indoors during these uncertain times, they unveil their new set of gaming laptops for all gamers. These new laptops bring all the latest and powerful gaming hardware, suited for both casual and competitive gamers. And all of these are now under a much simpler name.

Lenovo decided to keep things simpler and easier to remember with their new Legion gaming laptops. Don’t let the simpler name fool you; all these laptops bring a little bit of everything for everyone. Spearheading the new wave of gaming laptops for Lenovo Legion is the Lenovo Legion 7i. This, along with the Lenovo Legion 5i were announced a little earlier than the rest of the current lineup. Since then, Lenovo launched three new models rocking all the latest hardware.

For those who are looking for a more competitive gaming laptop, look no further to the Lenovo Legion 5Pi. This device carries with it the latest 10th-generation Intel Core H-series processors for improved performance across the board. Also, the Lenovo Legion 5Pi comes with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2060 for a more powerful gaming experience. All of these go along with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.

The Lenovo Legion 5Pi also comes with a 15-inch IPS HDR display with 240Hz refresh rate for more seamless gameplay. The display is 100% sRGB color accurate, perfect even for gamers who are also content creators themselves. You can expect to immerse yourself in your gameplay thanks to Dolby Vision and the thinner bezels.

If you’re looking for a more affordable option yet provides massive power, there is the AMD-powered Lenovo Legion 5. Unlike its brother, the Lenovo Legion 5i, this device comes with the new AMD Ryen 7 4000 series mobile processors. Not only will it bring the performance you need, but these chips are designed to aid in prolonging your laptop, as well. Much like the Legion 5i and 5Pi, the Legion 5 also comes with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2060 inside.

Finally, if you’re on a more casual side of gaming but still need powerful hardware to play well, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i is definitely for you. Even if it’s not a Legion product, this gaming laptop still packs a punch for any type of gamer out there. With the latest 10th-generation Intel Core H-series processors and up to an NVIDIA GTX 1650Ti inside, expect high-level gaming performance. It also comes with a 120Hz refresh rate display, and in two colors: Chameleon Blue and Onyx Black.

All of these gaming laptops come with Lenovo’s new technologies such as Coldfront 2.0 and TrueStrike keyboards for cooler and more responsive devices. They are expected to be available by June 2020, and pricing for the entire Legion lineup is as follows:

  • Lenovo Legion 7i – PhP 119,995

Warzone Crosses 100 Million Players

Published

on

Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season Three launches today with the most ambitious free content offering in Call of Duty history. 

Season Three marks a huge celebration for Call of DutyWarzone, which has crossed 100 million players since its launch last year. The free-to-play, free-for-everyone battle royale experience that fans know and love, receives its biggest transformation yet, travelling back to 1984 and the Cold War.

The new Warzone features massive changes, including new and reimagined locations, new gameplay options and deep optimizations across the entire map as nearly every building, surface and object has been touched to provide a more seamless gameplay experience.

Black Ops Cold War Season Three

Across Black Ops Cold War, throughout Season Three players will experience new multiplayer maps and modes, the next chapter of Call of Duty Zombies in Outbreak and a host of new gear to use in the battles ahead.  This is just the beginning with more content, events and surprises to come this season and beyond.

“The launch of Warzone has reinvented Call of Duty.  In just over a year, more than 100 million players around the world have jumped in to play Warzone together, and starting today we’re taking it to a new level,” said Rob Kostich, President, Activision.

“Season Three brings a massive amount of content and new updates – the most since launch – to Warzone as it transforms to 1984, while we’re also bringing a tremendous amount of new, free content to Black Ops Cold War.  Thank you to our fans everywhere, today is a celebration for our community. There’s so much more coming this season and beyond, get ready.”

Community events

The massive Season Three community celebration taking place today is the culmination of weeks of events inside Warzone that led to waves of Zombies overtaking Verdansk, its eventual nuclear detonation and ultimate transformation — and Call of Duty players were there for every part of it.

  • For weeks, players have fought-off Zombies throughout Warzone, while tracking their progress via Containment Protocols and Corruption Zones.
  • Yesterday, as the Zombies horde reached its tipping point, millions of players experienced an event in-game that triggered a nuclear blast decimating the entire Warzone map, as Verdansk went dark.
  • In its aftermath, Warzone players were transported to Rebirth Island, where a series of mysterious in-game clues and hidden messages helped players unlock the remaining secrets of the event and understand what really happened to Warzone, ultimately transporting everyone to Verdansk in the year 1984, and the highly anticipated launch of Season Three.
  • As the new Warzone experience officially launches today, the community celebration continues as players head online to play all the new Season Three content, including the new-look Verdansk 1984 Warzone map and a host of new Multiplayer and Zombies content across Black Ops Cold War.
  • Fans can follow the latest intel @CallofDuty on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, or visit www.callofduty.com. Viewers can also head to Twitch.tv/callofduty for live action, including the Atlanta FaZe US$ 100,000 Gold Rush Tournament.

Call of Duty: Warzone is integrated with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Call of Duty and its titles are published by Activision, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI), and developed by studios (in alphabetical order) Activision Shanghai, Beenox, Demonware, High Moon Studios, Infinity Ward, Raven Software, Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games.
