Apex Legends Gibraltar Guide: Tips On Playing As The Shielded Fortress

Apex Legends Gibraltar Guide: Tips On Playing As The Shielded Fortress

Team balance can be pretty important in Apex Legends. Unlike other battle royale games, developer Respawn Entertainment's inclusion of individual characters you can choose at the beginning of a match means good teams aren't just thinking about how to beat other players, but how they can support and complement each other on the battlefield. Other than the medic character Lifeline, there's not another Legend in Apex as team-oriented as Gibraltar.

Gibraltar is a defensive player, with abilities that are all geared toward standing his ground, protecting teammates, and making it tough for enemies to put fire on his squad. Used effectively, Gibraltar can save teammates' lives and turn the tides of fights by making your team's position more defensible than the enemy's. But perhaps more than most other characters in Apex Legends, effective communication with Gibraltar is key, because he can do as much harm as he can good at times.

Playing as Gibraltar takes some getting used to, but once you've put some time in, you'll be saving your squad with dome shields and potentially dropping whole squads with effective mortar strikes. We've got all you need to know about Gibraltar's abilities, plus a whole mess of tips to help you make the most of any situation when playing as him.

New On Netflix: This Week's Movies, TV, And Originals (US)

about X hours ago from

The shortest month is approaching its end, and Netflix's slate of new offerings is slowing. Even a relatively slow week for the streaming giant has a handful of new shows and original films to watch, though, and this one is no exception. This week we get five new films, along with new series and a few additional seasons of existing shows.

The new films include the dramas The Drug King and Firebrand, the love story Paris Is Us, historical drama The Photographer of Mauthausen, and the comedy Paddleton. Those are joined by another volume of Chef's Table, and new seasons of The Big Family Cooking Showdown, Rebellion, and Suburra. Plus a new comedy series Workin' Moms premieres with its first season.

Meanwhile, a couple of offerings are leaving this week. Girl Meets World, the recent sequel to the classic sitcom, will have its seasons 1-3 vanish from the service, along with horror comedy movie Piranha.

Path Of Exile PS4 Releases In March

about X hours ago from

The continually evolving Path of Exile will finally see the release of the long-awaited PS4 edition later in March. Intended to be released following the launch of the last expansion, Betrayal, in December, the game was abruptly delayed prior to its planned launch. During a recent chat with Path of Exile's managing director Chris Wilson, he offered an update on the PS4 edition, and why developer Grinding Gear Games chose to delay it.

As it turned out, the developers held back the PS4 release to give it some extra time. According to Wilson, the game was in solid shape, but the team felt it could be improved. Due to the lengthy process to authorize the game for release, the PS4 version will now have its launch in March--final date still pending. At its debut, the newest console release will have all present DLC available, which includes Synthesis.

"It really feels like we're completing the cycle with platforms for Path of Exile," said Wilson. "We wished we could have gotten on consoles earlier, but our resources were pretty limited at the time. Thankfully we were able to get them done. It's been really useful [not releasing the PS4 in December]. It would have been OK to have released it then, but we do want first-impressions to be good and there were certain areas of the game we weren't happy with. We wanted to tighten it up."

Path Of Exile's Big Synthesis Expansion Will Launch This March

Path of Exile continues to keep new content rolling out at a steady pace. Following the Betrayal expansion last December, the developers at Grinding Gear Games still have big plans ahead for the online action-RPG. In addition to the launch of their next update, Synthesis, the developers will also bring the long-awaited release of the PlayStation 4 edition in March.

The Synthesis expansion launches on March 8 for PC and March 11 for Xbox One. It will shake up the game's familiar spell system for something more tactical and user-friendly, while also introducing some new features that will give greater incentive for players to revisit past locations. Along with new additions to the game's league system, allowing players to either start fresh with a new character or continue with their existing character, there's also a new storyline that deals with restoring the memories of a mysterious character who has access to a large arsenal of spells and loot--all set within a bizarre dreamscape.

Managing director Chris Wilson spoke with us at great length about what to expect for Path of Exile's newest expansion, and how this one will be the beginning of an eventful year for the online-RPG--culminating at year's end with another substantial update.

New Ghost Recon: Wildlands Special Operation Update Coming Next Week

Ubisoft has announced the next Special Operation is coming to Ghost Recon: Wildlands on February 27. Special Operation 4 will introduce new PvP and PvE content, as well as several community-requested features.

A brand-new PvE mode is included in Special Operation 4, although Ubisoft hasn't yet revealed exact details for it other than that it would "test your endurance." In a blog post, the developer did say that completing the mode for the first time will unlock a new outfit, and that more information would be shared "soon." On the PvP side of things, Ghost War multiplayer will be getting a new class in Special Operation 4, as well as two additional maps. The new Ghost War class will be exclusive to Year 2 Pass holders for a week, before going live for everyone else on March 6.

Several community-requested features will go live in Special Operation 4 as well. You'll now be able to change the time of day in the solo campaign. Both Battle and Prestige Crates have been updated, with all voice lines and several emotes moving from the former to the latter. Prestige Crates will also drop higher rarity items more often. A new browser will allow you to look through custom matches based on your selected criteria. Challenges will also have increased Prestige Credit rewards, and two new PvP events are being added to the pool.
