Exclusive First Look At Bumblebee Legendary Warrior in Transformers Trading Card Game

Hasbro’s Transformers Trading Card Game rolls out tomorrow, and Game Informer has the first exclusive look at the super rare Bumblebee Legendary Warrior card.

Hasbro's tagline "Collect! Build! Battle!" captures the spirit of this competitive 2-player card game. An Autobot Starter Set offers a low-hassle launching point, but like most CCGs, players can buy more packs and build their own decks full of either Autobots or Decepticons. Each game allows players to battle rival bots; using battle cards to increase attack, raise defense, or equip upgrades. You can even transform from bot to alt mode by flipping over the character card. Both forms have unique attacks, health, and defense stats, which adds an interesting layer of strategy to the game.

The Bumblebee Legendary Warrior card is super rare and only appears once in about 79 booster packs, but it comes with worthwhile perks. Compared to the Bumblebee character card included with the starter kit, Bumblebee Legendary Warrior has greater attack power, a massive boost in health, and minimal drop in defense. On top of stat changes, this super rare character card gains two additional attack and defense points if the bot is alone on the battlefield and can attack any hostile cards when in alt form.

Fallout 76 Beta Coming In Late October

Bethesda has revealed more details about the upcoming Fallout 76 beta, including when it's coming and how it all works. The B.E.T.A., as they're calling it (short for Break-It Early Test Application) will be running in specific time windows through the end of October.

The beta hits the Xbox One first on October 23, and it arrives on PlayStation 4 and PC a week later. It'll run from those days until a few days before the game's November 14 launch. During that time, the beta will be live for periods of about four to eight hours a day. When it's live, players will have access to the complete game, with the goal of having player progress carry over to the final version when it launches.

The beta is only available to players who preorder the game and redeem a code that comes with their preorder receipt. For complete details, check out the official FAQ.

Fortnite's Sixth Season Brings Pets, Darkness, And More

Fortnite's Sixth Season Brings Pets, Darkness, And More

Fortnite: Battle Royale's sixth season is now live, and the theme appears to be darkness. Thanks to the giant, purple cube melting in the lake at the end of season five, the map is now blanketed in an eerie night, which now is home to a werewolf (one of the new player skins), and other unsightly things. Changes are all over the map, including a new consumable called the shadow stone, which grants the player temporary invisibility but disables all weapons. The map now features a floating island, haunted castle, corn fields, and corrupted zones. Sounds like Epic is getting into the Halloween spirit.

The sixth season also brings something unexpected: pets. That's right, you no longer have to go it alone in 1 v 100 matches. You can now wear a backpack that holds a dog, dragon, or lizard. Players will also find a new 100 level Battle Pass that contains 100 rewards.

The Battle Pass is once again loaded with wild skins, gliders, and dance moves. Fortnite's oddly iconic llama is a big part of some of the skins. DJ Yonder wears a llama helmet, and in the giddy up skin you wear an inflatable llama around your waist.
