Apex Legends: Mysterious Launch Pads Have Appeared, Hinting At Octane's Release

about X hours ago from

There are jump pads near Apex Legends' Market right now. Not just any jump pads either; they're the ones the rumored new Legend Octane places as his Ultimate ability.

We've stumbled upon it ourselves, and we aren't the only ones, as evidenced by posts on Reddit. Other players are reporting they've found Octane's jump pads as well. Respawn is just leaving coy-looking emoji comments in response, which implies this is a purposeful tease of what's to come, and not a mistaken leak on the developer's part.

Prior to this, Octane has leaked a few times, which is why so many people believe he's the next scheduled character for Apex Legends. The first mention of the Legend was a leak that showcased the character's ability page. The leaked image stated Octane's Passive allowed him to heal over time while not in combat, his Tactical caused him to move 30 percent faster for six seconds at the cost of 10 percent of his health, and his Ultimate deployed a jump pad to launch Legends into the air.

PS4 DualShock Gets Another Color Makeover

Sony has unveiled another new color joining the PlayStation 4 DualShock lineup. This time it's a color scheme evocative of a forest ski trip, titled Alpine Green. It sports an evergreen shade across the front, with a white backing and white buttons and sticks.

The announcement states it will be available in the US and Canada in April for $65 US / $75 CAD. You can get a look at the new controller below or pre-order now.

Last August Sony introduced four new colors at once: Berry Blue, Sunset Orange, Blue Camo, and Copper. Alpine Green is getting the celebrity treatment by comparison with the spotlight all to itself. Sony has been offering color variants for its DualShock controllers for quite a while, including some that are exclusive to special edition consoles. Microsoft similarly offers special edition controller colors, but also has a Design Lab feature to let you customize your own paint.

Epic Games Store: Cloud Saves, Achievements, More Features On The Way

about X hours ago from

Epic has released a roadmap for 2019, which includes the new features scheduled to appear on the Epic Games Store. The full roadmap can be viewed on Trello, but Epic has issued the disclaimer that the new features listed and the times they're scheduled for are "subject to change."

Exact timetables are not provided for each feature, with each one falling into a category of one-three months, four-six months, or long-term (more than six months). In the short-term, Epic isn't implementing too many major features. The company plans to redesign the Epic Games Store's website, and add search tools that utilize both genre and tags. The Epic Game Store will also start hosting video, provide an "optimized delta solution" to help developers reduce the size of game patches, support DLC add-ons, and streamline the sign-in process to allow players to "get into their offline games faster." The one major feature during this window of time is cloud saves support--a long-requested addition from the Epic Games Store community.

Game Of Thrones Season 8: The Most Tantalizing Fan Theories Going Into The Final Season

Winter is here, and it's going to be a cold one. Spoilers ahead!

A year and a half ago in August 2017, we watched the Season 7 finale of HBO's Game of Thrones, and our jaws dropped. The Wall came down. Littlefinger died. And Jon Snow did a lot more than bend the knee to Daenerys Targaryen.

At the time, it seemed we'd have to wait forever to see the final six episodes in the series. But now, finally, we're there. Season 8 will premiere on April 14, and we'll finally get to see who, if anyone, will win the game of thrones. But first, our heroes have to deal with a little threat up North. The Night King has it in for the Starks, the Lannisters, and anyone else with warm blood coursing through their veins. That includes Cersei, cold-blooded as she seems.

The extended break since the last episode has given the show's most dedicated fans time to theorize. We scoured the Internet to see what they've been saying, and found 9 of the best theories we've heard so far for Game of Thrones Season 8. If you liked this gallery, be sure to check out our frame-by-frame breakdown of the newest Game of Thrones trailer. Winter is here, and it's going to be a cold one.

Anthem Loot Just Got Better In New Update; Patch Notes Released

about X hours ago from

EA has announced the next update for Anthem is now live. This update patches Anthem's loot system--specifically buffing the drop rates for Masterwork and Legendary items. The full patch notes are listed on EA's website.

The new update has taken immediate effect on the server-side of Anthem so you don't have to actually download anything. If you boot up Anthem right now, the update should have already taken effect. Because of the update, drop rates for all Masterwork and Legendary items have been increased on Grandmaster 2 and Grandmaster 3 difficulties. Across all difficulties, Masterwork and Legendary items now have a higher chance of dropping from Anthem's harder enemies--which includes Legendary and Epic Titans, Legendary Furies, Legendary Acid Ursixes, and Legendary Luminary Elders.
