Fortnite Highlighting Fan Creations In New Zone Called The Block

Fortnite Season 7 went live this morning, giving the players a new winter wonderland filled with planes, ziplines, new skins, and soon, even their very own islands to build up. But it looks like Epic is sneaking one more present under the tree. 

Donald Mustard, Epic Games worldwide creative director, took to The Game Awards stage to announce a new zone called The Block, replacing Risky Reels. The Block is a dedicated space to show off fan-created content from the new creative mode and it is now live. Battle Pass owners can jump into creative mode now and everyone can start building gallery-worthy creations December 13.

BioWare Teases Next Dragon Age Game With The Dread Wolf Rises

During the Game Awards, BioWare showed off a teaser for the next Dragon Age game, but it really was a tease. We don't know much about the game at this point, but the video's slow pan out to a hashtag #TheDreadWolfRises will have to satisfy us for now.

The Dread Wolf is likely a reference to Fen'Harel, the elven god of betrayal that talked about in that game's fiction. Hopefully, he's cool.

Epic Games Store Reveals First Slate Of Games, Including New Titles

It was only earlier this week that Epic announced plans to introduce a developer-friendly digital distribution store that, whether Epic says so outloud or not, will compete with current market leader Steam. The Fortnite developer plans to make things easier for game creators, but has said little about how they plan to entice consumers. At The Game Awards tonight, Epic tried to answer that question by announcing their upcoming slate of titles for the store, including some brand new reveals.

Ashen's surprise release has been hinted at for a few days through a number of leaks, and even leaked out early on Xbox Live, but it is nice to see the Souls-like adventure game finally get a release today. Also surprising is Hades, a new game from Pyre developer Supergiant, which had not been announced or even rumored before tonight's reveal.

Perhaps most interesting is Journey, which has never seen release outside of the PlayStation 3.
