about X hours ago from

Respawn Entertainment has revealed that a new gun is on the way to its popular battle royale title, Apex Legends. The announcement was short and sweet, with a video of the rifle in question being posted to the official Apex Legends Twitter account. The video has a glitching effect going on, so it's difficult to get a good look at it, but it seems like the weapon can be fired like an automatic rifle and will have an alternate fire that lets the player charge a shot. Take a look for yourself below.

Respawn hasn't said exactly when the new weapon will be added to Apex Legends, only that it'll be available tomorrow (February 20). Of course, we'll be at hand to let you know when it's available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We'll also take it for a bit of a test run and bring you some video of it in action. Depending on how it performs, we may even add it to our list of best Apex Legends guns.

about X hours ago from

Overwatch's newest map, Paris, is now live across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The map arrives as part of a new patch that also fixes numerous bugs and other issues in Blizzard's popular hero shooter.

Paris is the fifth Assault map to hit the game. It's set in the titular French city and features narrow streets, corridors, and storefronts to funnel players into firefights. It also encompasses a variety of areas, most notably the Cabaret Luna, the Pâtisserie Galand, and the sprawling Maison Marat located in the heart of the city.

The Paris map made its debut in Overwatch earlier this month on the PC test servers, but this marks the first time it is available on all platforms. If you want to take a closer look at it before hopping in, you can watch us play a round on the new map in the video above.

There is a Funko Pop figure for everything. Right now, I'm staring at one of myself, and it is horrifying. Anyway, if you're a fan of sports and have been asking, "Where is my favorite MLB mascot?" pump your brakes because the collectible giant just revealed a slew of figures that you'll surely love.

Revealed at New York's Toy Fair over the weekend, Funko is producing a new line of Pop figures based on sports stars from the MLB, NASCAR, and more. From sports legends like Muhammad Ali to NASCAR drivers, there are quite a few figures to choose from. However, this batch of reveals is geared heavily to MLB fans. While there is only one legendary player in the batch, there are plenty of current players from many of the National and American conferences. Additionally, the mascots of MLB teams are also getting the Pop treatment. And now I know that former President Theodore Roosevelt is a mascot.

At this point in time, all these Pop toys are listed as "coming soon," and no price point has been revealed yet.

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.
