Scientists Use Fortnite To Talk About Climate Change

Fortnite feels like the biggest thing on the planet right now, so it makes sense that some clever Twitch streamers have started using it as a platform to teach viewers about this crazy planet. According to Wired, ClimateFortnite is a channel full of climate scientists who discuss global warming while playing Epic's popular battle royal game.

"It builds a community where people can ask the hard questions directly to an expert," ClimateFortnite host Henri Drake told Wired. "For a topic like climate change that is steeped in misinformation, direct access to experts is crucial."

ClimateFortnite has a megar following, but this is an inventive use of Epic's game and the Twich streaming service, and we're interested to see if other scientists follow suit. The Wired article is full of even more details on ClimateFortnite and climate change, so check it out if you have a chance.

James Gunn Hired To Write (And Possibly Direct) The Next Suicide Squad

James Gunn, former director of the popular Guardian’s of the Galaxy franchise, has been hired on to write DC's next Suicide Squad film. Gunn is also being looked at to possibly direct.

This news comes months after Disney’s controversial decision to fire Gunn from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after some unsavory tweets made by Gunn a decade ago were unearthed. Following his departure, it is significant that Gunn has chosen Marvel's rival, DC Entertainment for his next project. The filmmaker is also currently working on a horror film titled BrightBurn, which is set to release next May. 

For the next Suicide Squad, Gunn says he'll take a new approach, so this may or may not be a sequel to the David Ayer-directed film in 2016. With a solid track record directing successful films about a motley cast of anti-heroes, Gunn makes a ton of sense here, and could be just what the DC cinematic universe needs right now.

Epic Aquries Easy Anti-Cheat Company For Fortnite

Epic Games is strongly against cheating in Fortnite, the company's immensely popular battle royale game, and now the studio is putting its money where its mouth is. Epic has acquired Kamu, a start-up company based in Finland best known for Easy Anti-Cheat software. Epic is already using this product, but Kamu promises this move will better support "the live management of player satisfaction, community building, and game integrity." 

Kamu's software is currently serving more than 80 games and is installed by over 100 million PC players globally. For now, it looks like that will continue. However, with Epic now at the helm, it remains to be seen how that could change. 

This acquisition also puts Epic's foot in the Finland market. In their press release, Kamu explains "Epic’s new presence in Helsinki will serve as a base for recruiting technology, engine, and online service developers." For now, you can play Fortnite knowing the battle against cheaters wages on.

Stories Untold Developer Reveals New Game Observation

No Code, award winning creators of Stories Untold, and Devolver Digital are jumping back into the horror genre with Observation. In this sci-fi thriller, something has gone terribly wrong with your space station and the crew has vanished. However, you won’t solve this mystery as a human protagonist, but rather as the station AI, S.A.M. In the game, players operate the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to help one survivor uncover the truth.

No stranger to interactive suspense, No Code’s Stories Untold bagged an 8.25 from Game Informer back in 2017. Javy praised its impressive atmosphere and nuanced thrills. For their third full release, No Code is “scaling up considerably” to craft Observation, and the team is pulling inspiration from its current staff, some of whom worked on Alien: Isolation.

Observation will release on PlayStation 4 and PC next Spring.
