Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Adds These New Rewards

Season 3 of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is underway on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which means players can now pick up a new Battle Pass. As before, the Season 3 Battle Pass can only be purchased for 950 V-Bucks and lets players unlock items the more they play the game, including a slew of new outfits, gliders, emotes, and more.
For this season, Epic has added 30 more tiers to the Battle Pass, bringing the total number of tiers to 100. Despite this sizable increase, the studio says that players will still be able to unlock everything in the same amount of time it took to complete the Season 2 Battle Pass–roughly 75-150 hours of playtime by Epic's estimates. Players can also purchase tiers using V-Bucks to unlock items faster, and those who own the Season 2 Battle Pass will unlock five free tiers as a bonus in Season 3.
The Season 3 Battle Pass includes 76 items to unlock in all. Among the new one that players can earn this season are Back Blings–customization items for your ch..

Dragon Ball FighterZ Patches Coming To Fix Online Issues Soon

Since its release in late January, Dragon Ball FighterZ has suffered from issues relating to online multiplayer. These are still present almost a month later, but Bandai Namco has reassured fans that it's both aware of the problems and working on updates to resolve them–the first of which should be out quite soon.
In a video discussing the upcoming roadmap for FigherZ patches, producer Tomoko Hiroki states, “We've heard all of your feedback since the release, and we're fully aware of the online issues that you're having, such as the matching in Ring Match or being disconnected from the lobby. We're aware of the situation, and keen to resolve them with all our might.”
The first step toward fixing the problems will come before the end of February, when a new update is scheduled for release. Hiroki doesn't specify what this will do precisely or which of the problems it will address, nor was a specific release date provided–she only says it'll be out in..

Here’s Assassin’s Creed Origins’ New Curse Of The Pharaohs DLC In 4K

Following the release of its first DLC pack, The Hidden Ones, another Assassin's Creed Origins DLC is on the way, this one called The Curse of the Pharaohs. With its launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC drawing near, we recently got to check it out.
In the video above, you can see about half an hour of gameplay from two different main story missions. These feature totally new locations you won't have ventured through previously, and they're home to some notable encounters. Those include one with some giant scorpions and a boss fight against an undead Nefertiti.
The Curse of the Pharaohs differs from The Hidden Ones in that it introduces a totally new storyline that is separate from that of the main game. You'll take on a variety of Egyptian beasts and famous pharaohs as you try to figure out why the dead are being brought back to life. In addition to the new areas, story, and enemies, you'll be able to acquire new outfits, gear, and weapons. Furthermore, it raises t..

Free GTA 5 Online Money Available For PS4, Xbox One, And PC; Here’s How To Qualify

As it does occasionally, Rockstar is providing a welcome freebie to players of Grand Theft Auto V. Players will be able to get some free money in GTA Online for a limited time, and in a roundabout way, everything available for sale will be discounted.
Attributing this to a move by the fictional San Andreas Treasury Department, Rockstar has announced a stimulus package for all players on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. By logging into GTA Online between now and February 26, you'll qualify for $250,000 of in-game cash. This won't be handed over immediately–you can expect it to reach your Maze Bank account sometime between February 27 and March 6.
In addition to that, Rockstar has kicked off a promotion that requires you to have GTA money now but will save you some in the long haul. Any in-game cash you spend from now until February 26 will get you a 10% refund (for example, spend $500,000, and you'll get $50,000 back in the bank.) The most you can earn back through this promotion ..

What You Need To Know About Ex Machina Director’s New Film, Annihilation

Between Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, and Altered Carbon, we've had a pretty good run of science fiction entertainment over the last few years. One of the most memorable modern sci-fi movies is Ex Machina, written and directed by Alex Garland. Three years after its release, Garland's next movie, Annihilation, is gearing up for release, and it looks to be just as ambitious.
Based on the novel of the same name, Annihilation follows a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, a surveyor, and a linguist as they investigate a strange, uncharted stretch of land. What they find there, however, promises to take viewers on a mild-melting sci-fi journey.
Garland, who video game fans may also know for his work on Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and DmC: Devil May Cry, recently visited the GameSpot offices and sat down with us to discuss his film, specifically the approach to adapting the book for the big screen, and what attracted him to the story.
On top of that, he also takes the time..

Kingdom Come And The Importance Of First Impressions

At first glance, Kingdom Come: Deliverance bears more than a passing resemblance to other medieval RPGs, particularly the Elder Scrolls series. Both share a first-person viewpoint and take place in a sprawling, European-inspired world inhabited by an extensive cast of characters going about their daily lives. Beyond those superficial similarities, however, Kingdom Come is an entirely different experience, carving out its own identity by removing fantasy elements entirely in favor of a historically accurate setting and gameplay.
Where most other medieval RPGs populate their worlds with magic and dragons, Kingdom Come eschews all of the fantasy trappings typically associated with the genre for a story that's firmly rooted in history. The game takes place in 15th century Bohemia, with players assuming the role of a lowly blacksmith's son as the country becomes embroiled in a brutal civil war. This emphasis on realism extends into the gameplay systems; combat has a steep learning..

New Destiny 2 Weapons Are Available As Next Faction Rally Event Begins

With Crimson Days now wrapped up, the next event is already live in Destiny 2. Bungie has kicked off the second Faction Rally of Season 2, giving you the opportunity to get your hands on some exclusive, faction-only gear–including some new weapons.
New rewards have been added to the special Engrams you receive for cashing in Faction Tokens. This includes the weapons that would have been sold as the Winner's Offering had Dead Orbit or Future War Cult won the previous Faction Rally event. Those weapons are now available for the first time and can be obtained like any other Faction reward.
In their place, there's also a new batch of Winner's Offerings for this Faction Rally. Each faction has one weapon that it will sell during Victory Week if it comes out on top during the Faction Rally. Dead Orbit and New Monarchy will each offer up their own pulse rifle, while Future War Cult will have a scout rifle. The winning faction will sell its gun for 50,000 Glimmer to all players..

New Battlefield Will Be Playable At EA Play, Which Returns Before E3 This Year

Rather than being a part of E3 proper, Electronic Arts will once again host its own dedicated event just prior to the start of the gaming industry's major event in June. EA has confirmed the first details about EA Play 2018, including the fact that the next Battlefield will be playable there.
As you'd expect, there are virtually no details on what the game will be; EA simply says that EA Play attendees will “have a chance to play the next Battlefield experience.” The publisher had previously confirmed the next entry in the series would release later this year, so we'd expect to have learned the first details by the time June rolls around. However, we've learned nothing yet about what to expect from the game, including what era it will take place in after Battlefield 1 went to World War I.
EA Play 2018 will take place in Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium from June 9-11; E3 begins the following day, on June 12, also in LA. A press conference will take place on Jun..

The Assassin’s Creed Origins DLC Where You Fight Giant Scorpions Has Been Delayed

The Curse of the Pharaohs, the second and final expansion for Assassin's Creed: Origins, is not going to launch on time. Ubisoft announced today that the expansion has been delayed by a week, shifting from March 6 to March 13.
A spokesperson for Ubisoft told GameSpot that the delay was necessary so as to “deliver the best experience possible to our players.” The expansion is included in Origins' $20 season pass or as a separate purchase on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Before its release, everyone will be able to take part in an introductory quest called Lights Among the Dunes, which will be added as part of a free Origins update on February 27. It is unclear if this date is still accurate given the delay for The Curse of the Pharaohs, but we've followed up with Ubisoft to try to find out.
The Curse of the Pharaohs adds completely new locations, including Aaru, which is the heaven-like paradise filled with beautiful reed fields…and giant scorpions. Players will also..
