Fortnite Guide: Visit Furthest North, South, East, West Points Of The Island (Season 8, Week 2)

about X hours ago from

The challenges for Week 2 of Season 8 in Fortnite are fairly simple to complete. For the most part they involve dishing out damage, opening chests, or taking out enemy players in specific locations. However, one of the challenges included in the premium Battle Pass sections is a bit unusual, though not terribly difficult either.

The challenge asks players to visit the furthers points of the island in each of the cardinal directions. Now, that sounds pretty simple, but you given the strange geography of the island, you may want some specific guidance to ensure that you're not aimlessly wandering around in the wrong location wondering why the challenge isn't completing. It just so happens that we've done the legwork and have got the information you need to speed the whole process up. Take a look below for a list of the locations you need to head to.

If you need a hand with Week 1's challenges, make sure to take a look at our our full Season 8 challenges guide. We'll be keeping that up to date with new guides every week, so you shouldn't have much trouble completing challenges and earning the Battle Stars necessary to unlock the hot new Season 8 Battle Pass cosmetics.

Fortnite Challenge Guide: Visit Furthest Points, Damage Supply Drops, And More (Season 8, Week 2)

about X hours ago from

Fortnite Season 8 is now in its second week. By now you should be more comfortable navigating the latest version of the island, which means completing the weekly challenge should be a little easier to. Week 2's challenges are now available, so if you've got your eye on one of the many new cosmetic unlocks available in the Season 8 Battle Pass, it's time to put in the work to unlock the Battle Stars you'll need to get them.

As always, challenges are grouped into two categories. The first, which is available to everyone, tasks players with completing a multi-stage challenge that begins by landing at The Block. When you've done this, additional challenges in this series will reveal themselves. After that, 200 points of damage need to be done to descending Supply Drops, and three kills must be earned at Salty Springs or Haunted Hills.

The second group of challenges, however, is exclusive to those that have spent V-Bucks on a premium Battle Pass. If that's you, you'll need to start a three-stage challenge by gaining 25 points of health from eating apples. These delicious fruits can be found scattered around the island but we tend to find them more frequently around Wailing Woods, Lonely Lodge, and just below Dusty Divot. After chowing down, you'll need to complete the additional stages of this challenge.

The Division 2 Promo Delivers Unsubtle Political Satire

about X hours ago from

The Division 2 revolves around a weaponized super-virus that has wreaked havoc on the social order, first starting in New York and then migrating to the United States capitol Washington DC in the sequel. The themes and setting would seem to lend themselves to political commentary, and the latest bit of promotional world-building lays it on thick.

A tweet from the official account shows a fictionalized letter from the state department of Mexico, responding to the "deteriorating situation" in the US. It cites instability due to people fleeing to Mexico from the United States, and announces that it is closing the border. To that end, it says the Mexican government has fully funded a border wall and has dispatched troops for security in the meantime.

The letter mentions the titular Division agents at the very end. In the fiction of the game, you play as one of these agents--an elite cabal who live ordinary lives throughout the country until activated to deal with acute domestic threats. But it says despite their efforts, Mexico has "lost both faith and confidence in the ability of the United States government."

PS4 Update Adds Remote Play For iOS; Here Are All The Changes

The latest PlayStation 4 system software update is available now, and it adds a pretty cool feature: iOS users can now use their iPhones or iPads to play PS4 games using Remote Play.

Version 6.50 is a mandatory 442 MB download. It enables Remote Play for iOS devices, though you'll also need to download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Apple App Store. The app itself is compatible with the vast majority of PS4 games, with virtual buttons and sticks appearing on the iOS device screen, though you may find a bluetooth gamepad allows greater control.

Elsewhere the 6.50 update, which was previously available in beta, introduces the ability to remap the X and circle buttons for some territories, but otherwise the patch changes very little.

Nintendo Switch VR Headset Launches Soon As A New Labo Kit

Nintendo has revealed its latest Labo set, the VR Kit, which turns the Switch into a virtual reality headset. The new Toy-Con--as Labo kits are called--launches on April 12, and includes new minigames as well as additional physical cardboard to make the VR headset.

Nintendo says the new kit "encourages passing around Toy-Con creations among a group of people so everyone in the room can easily join in on the fun." The company continues: "To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences--no head-strap needed."

The new Toy-Con is available in two configurations: the complete VR Kit set includes the Switch software and materials to build all six Labo VR projects--VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant. The VR Starter Set, meanwhile, includes the Switch software, but only the materials needed to build the VR Goggles and Blaster. Both sets also include a safety cap and screen holder, for people who prefer to play the minigames in traditional 2D. Those who buy the Starter Set can then complete their collection later on by purchasing two expansions--one including the Elephant and Camera, the other including the Wind Pedal and Bird.
