Mortal Kombat 11's Story And Towers Should Have Solo Players Excited

When I think about my own history with Mortal Kombat, it was all about beating my brother or friends one-on-one so I could finish them with a savage fatality in MK3. It revolved around a light-hearted sense of competition wrapped in a disgustingly hilarious gore-filled fighting game. By no means has that been lost in Mortal Kombat 11, but it's not necessarily the thing I'm most excited about. Even as I pay closer attention to the FGC and find pro-level play ever-fascinating, it's the single-player content that I'm eager to jump into.

During a preview event in Chicago, Illinois--home to developer NetherRealm Studios--I had the opportunity to spend about two hours with Mortal Kombat 11's latest playable build. This included a roster of familiar faces such as Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, and Kano in addition to the playable characters available during January's reveal event. But this time, I got a taste of the game's story mode and Towers of Time challenges, and messed around with Variations and customization. Considering the pedigree of NetherRealm and the breadth of content Injustice 2 packed in, it doesn't come as much of surprise that MK11 follows suit.

Judgment Gets A Western Release Date

about X hours ago from

Judgment is coming to the west. Sega announced that the game from the studio behind Yakuza is coming to PS4 on June 25. Those who pre-order digitally will get a head-start on the detective adventure game on June 21.

Originally titled Judge Eyes in Japan, Judgment is a narrative-driven game in which players assume the role of investigator Takayuki Yagami looking into grisly crimes. It's been described as Yakuza meets Phoenix Wright, for the way it blends a heavy story focus with investigative gameplay sequences. It also shares a setting with the Yakuza series: Kamurocho, the fictionalized city modeled after Kabukicho in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Though it shares some common traits with Yakuza, though, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio head Toshihiro Nagoshi says this game is "completely different" from its other works. Yakuza has become a critically acclaimed series of its own, most recently concluding the gangster melodrama series with Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

Here's How Fortnite's New Buried Treasure Map Works

about X hours ago from

In its ongoing quest to keep things fun and fresh, Fortnite developer Epic Games has introduced a new gameplay feature for Season 8. As part of update 8.01, players will now be able to use maps to hunt for treasure. However, this isn't like the treasure hunts from seasons past, so we've put together a short overview of how it works.

Naturally, the first part of hunting for treasure is getting your hands on a map. These maps can be found as Floor Loot or in Chests. They are an item that take up an inventory slot, and you can also only carry one at a time--so no hoarding them! Using your map to will make a small dotted red line appear in front of you. However, this line doesn't extend out very far, so its designed to serve as an indication of the general direction you should be heading instead of a direct path to it.

Once you're close to the location you'll see a golden shaft of light marking exactly where you need to dig. There's also a very hand "X" to mark the spot. Digging takes a little bit of time, so be careful and make sure there aren't any other players around to pick you off. When you successfully open the chest, you'll be treated to some items of Legendary rarity level.

Fortnite 8.01 Patch Notes: Buried Treasure Map, Slide Duos, And More

about X hours ago from

Following the launch of Fortnite Season 8, which flooded the game with new content, developer Epic has once again updated the battle royale experience with something new. As detailed in the patch notes for update 8.01, the game now has Buried Treasure to be found. Players will be able to use a map to uncover loot hidden across the island. Players can only hold one map at a time and anyone who manages to find a chest will be rewarded with legendary loot. These maps can be found from Floor Loot and Chests.

Although Buried Treasure is the big new feature, there are some smaller additions, tweaks, and changes to the game too. Slide Duos has been introduced as the new Limited Time Mode. In terms of balance tweaks, the Infantry Rifle has a lower chance of appearing out of Chests and being found on the floor, as does the Clinger.

Bottle Rockets have been vaulted and players can now slide down terrain without taking damage from an increased angle. Check out the full patch notes for the Battle Royale below.
