Fallout: New Vegas Dev's Share Interesting Lore Detail About New Game The Outer Worlds

about X hours ago from

The Outer Worlds is the next RPG from Obsidian, and gives one of the most experienced studios in the industry an opportunity to play in a new space-faring setting. If you have some nagging questions about the game, chances are co-directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky addressed them in a lengthy new Q&A session.

The Game Informer podcast hosted the Q&A with questions from fans. It delves into details from the esoteric to the mundane, with an occasional diversion regarding their history establishing the Fallout franchise. A few choice tidbits include the level cap of 30, and the fact that weapons and armor will have modding but no crafting system.

Some of the most detail comes from implications surrounding the story. The duo say that they saw at least one fan speculate pretty accurately on what's changed in the alternate timeline the game takes place in, and it may not be what you'd expect. They suggest that one of the key turning points in history was the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901. Without that event, the alternate history speculates, Teddy Roosevelt wouldn't have taken office and implemented a trust busting agenda. This suggests that Roosevelt failing to break up large corporations is largely responsible for the alternate history presented in The Outer Worlds.

Bravery Network Online Delivers A Fresh Take On Pokemon Combat, In Style

Bravery Network Online Delivers A Fresh Take On Pokemon Combat, In Style

Speaking to the developers from Gloam Collective about their upcoming PC and Mac game, Bravery Network Online, they raised a point that I hadn't considered before: despite its popularity, Pokemon's team-based combat system is rarely imitated, leaving a gap in the market. "It’s super specific," Gloam says, "but we found ourselves craving more games like these, and not finding any. We want to fill that void!"

Bravery Network Online won't set you off as a plucky youth on a spirited adventure--it will instead present short stories in visual novel form to clue you into the world's backstory, and the various human characters that you'll take into battle--rough-and-tumble cuties that love nothing more than a good fight. Judging by a recent demo, combat and creativity are put front and center. I've never seen a cast of characters quite like these, which run the gamut from imposing fashionable warriors to equally stylish yet seemingly frail fighters.

Forza Street May Have Been Accidentally Revealed

about X hours ago from

Turn 10 Studios may have outed the existence of an upcoming Forza mobile game. A recent community update erroneously linked to a sentence mentioning an unannounced mobile game called Forza Street, and it even names the developer.

GT Planet reports that the mistaken link appeared in the latest Forza Motorsport Week in Review. The link was intended to lead to a story about a recent esports winner, but instead linked to a description of a game. The link has since been corrected on the Forza site.

"Developed in partnership with UK-based studio, Electric Square, Forza Street is built from the ground up to support a wide range of Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices," it read.

Fortnite Buried Treasure Maps "Coming Soon"

Fortnite Buried Treasure Maps

Season 8 of Fortnite is now live across all platforms, and just as Epic teased prior to the start of the season, this one is themed around pirates. Already the developer has added a new pirate area and weapon to the battle royale game, and it appears another pirate item is on the way this week: treasure maps.

Fortnite's in-game News feed is teasing the imminent arrival of new Buried Treasure maps. It's unclear just how these items will work, but the News feed says they're "coming soon" to the game, and they'll allow players to "scour the island for hidden loot." You can take a glimpse at the maps below.

Epic has yet to confirm when the Buried Treasure maps will go live in Fortnite, but the developer likes to advertise new items shortly before they're added in the game's next update, so the maps will presumably arrive alongside this week's patch. Barring any unexpected delays, Epic typically releases updates for Fortnite on Tuesdays, although the developer hasn't announced the timing of this week's patch yet.

WWE Fastlane: Match Card, Date, And Start Time For The 2019 PPV

about X hours ago from

WWE fans across the globe are looking forward to Wrestlemania 35. However, before we can get to the sports entertainment giant's biggest show of the year, we have to make a pit stop at Fastlane.

Traditionally, Fastlane has been the truck stop diner of WWE PPVs. Yes, it's food, but just barely. Because this PPV is a lead in to the biggest WWE event of the year, there is usually very little build to the matches and no big surprises because, well, you can't mess with Wrestlemania storylines. However, with all that being said, this is actually turning out to be a pretty solid card so far.

Fastlane comes to PPV and the WWE Network on Sunday, March 10. The show will start at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT (March 11) with a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior. As of this writing, there are only four matches on the card, but that will obviously change after this week's episodes of Raw and Smackdown.

New Shazam Trailer Is Action-Packed And Absolutely Hilarious

about X hours ago from

The new trailer for Shazam is here. The latest DC release is a more comedic superhero adventure than many of the studio's movies. It stars Zachary Levi in the title role and hits theaters in April.

Like the previous trailers it shows teenage Billy Batson gaining incredible powers that transforms him into a full-size adult superhero. We see him learning how to use his new abilities with his pal Freddy, and then facing the evil Doctor Sivana. Although the movie is clearly packed with action and wild VFX, it doesn't look like it takes itself very seriously. Check it out above.

Shazam also stars Asher Angel as Billy, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy, and Mark Strong as Sivana. It's directed by David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) and hits theaters on April 5. For more check out everything we know about Shazam! so far.
