The Mysterious Unannounced 2K Game Might Finally Get Revealed Soon

about X hours ago from

For a long time now, Take-Two has teased an upcoming game from one of 2K's "biggest and most beloved franchises," and it may soon be time that we find out what it is. As part of its earnings report, Take-Two reaffirmed that this unannounced game remains on track to release during the company's fiscal year 2020. More interestingly, Take-Two said 2K will have "more to share" on the game in the coming months.

During the call, an analyst asked about the game, and CEO Strauss Zelnick said the company expects the game to "stay on track" following its previous delay. He added that the company has "very high expectations" for the game, whatever it may be.

This unannounced game was previously scheduled to launch during fiscal year 2019, which runs April 2018 through March 2019. However, it was later delayed to fiscal year 2020, which covers April 2019 through March 2020, so that's when you can expect this new sequel from 2K.

Fortnite's Account Merging System Is Finally Live, Here's How It Works

about X hours ago from

Epic's previously announced account merging system for Fortnite has gone live. Players who have multiple Fortnite accounts across platforms are now able to unify them--and all of their previously earned skins, V-Bucks, and other items--under one Epic Account.

The tool can be found on Epic's website, but the actual process of merging accounts is fairly complex. First, you'll need to designate one account as Primary and the other as Secondary; you can read how to do that here. One of the accounts must also have been used on PS4 and the other on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch before September 28, 2018.

After you've designated a Primary and Secondary account to merge together, your Secondary account will be disabled, and all of the cosmetics and V-Bucks it contained will be held for two weeks before finally being transferred over to your Primary account. You can read additional details about the process on Epic's website.

With Fortnite Season 8 Approaching, Earthquakes Have Begun Occurring In-Game

about X hours ago from

With Season 7 of Fortnite winding down and a new season on the horizon, strange phenomena have once again begun occurring in the hit battle royale game. Epic Games typically heralds the arrival of each new season with some kind of world-changing event, so this isn't entirely surprising. This time, however, the developer is literally shaking things up, as players have begun to experience earthquakes while playing.

Following the release of game's 7.30 update, dataminers discovered audio files indicating some sort of earthquake event would occur in the game (via Fortnite Insider). It appears the tremors have started, as players on Twitter and Reddit are posting clips of the map spontaneously quaking in the middle of a match.

Ahead Of Crackdown 3's Launch, Play The Original Game For Free On Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Microsoft has made Crackdown free on the Xbox Live marketplace, allowing you to download the game on Xbox 360 or Xbox One. With Crackdown 3 right around the corner, it's a good opportunity to see how the series originated.

In Microsoft's announcement of the deal, there was no word whether or not the game would be free forever or for a limited time. However, as the deal is to "celebrate the launch of Crackdown 3" it's probably best to act on this offer prior to Crackdown 3's release.

When we got the chance to check out Crackdown 3, we thought it's single-player was a little too much like the original game. Despite the 12 year difference in release dates, Crackdown 3's campaign looks and plays just like the first title in the series. However, Crackdown 3's multiplayer is fantastic, and made an incredible first impression that completely overshadowed the single-player gameplay.

If Apex Legends Has Given You The Titanfall 2 Itch, It's Really Cheap On Xbox One Right Now

If Apex Legends Has Given You The Titanfall 2 Itch, It's Really Cheap On Xbox One Right Now

With no pre-release marketing whatsoever (unless you count the leaks), EA and Respawn both announced and released a brand-new game earlier this week, Apex Legends. It's a battle royale game spin-off of sorts from the Titanfall series, and early impressions of it have been positive. Being free-to-play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC means that most anyone can jump in. But maybe battle royale isn't your thing. Or perhaps using the weapons from Titanfall has, like me, gotten you thinking about that series. Whatever the case, if you've gotten the urge to jump back into a proper Titanfall game, you can do so for awfully cheap right now on Xbox One.

As part of this week's Xbox Live sale, you can pick up Titanfall 2: Ultimate Edition for just $4.50/£3.75. That's a steep discount of 85% off the regular price, and a mere pittance for such a terrific game. It'll be available for that price through February 11 with or without Xbox Live Gold (though you'll need it in order to play online multiplayer). This Ultimate Edition comes with some extra perks to give you a head start on progression and some cosmetics in multiplayer.

Game of Thrones Season 8 New Photos Revealed

Game of Thrones Season 8 New Photos Revealed

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is now only two months away, and while we are yet to see a full trailer, a new batch of images has been released by HBO. Unsurprisingly, the photos don't give much away, but it does show all of the main characters and will get fans excited for the upcoming season.

There are 14 images in all, and if nothing else, it's a handy way to remind viewers exactly who is still alive as we go into Season 8. So there's Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), Varys (Conleth Hill), and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham). Check them out below:

Although the full trailer for the next season is yet to be released, a cryptic first teaser was released last month. It didn't contain any actual footage, but it did hint at the fates of members of the Stark family. We also know the final battle in the new season is the largest in the entire series, and most brutal as well.

When Batman And The Flash Team Up, Things Get Complicated In New DC Storyline

When Batman And The Flash Team Up, Things Get Complicated In New DC Storyline

Despite being members of the Justice League alongside one another, Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen aren't exactly the characters you'd expect to team up. It's not that they don't have a healthy working relationship--they've saved the world together more times than anyone could really count--but at the end of the day, they're just very different people. Anyone who's seen an episode of The Flash and watched one of the many, many Batman-centric films out there in the universe could tell you that.

But the truth of the matter is, the dynamic between Batman and The Flash over in their comic book incarnations is fraught with a lot more complexity than the boiled down versions we see on screen--and that's exactly what the four-issue mini series, The Price, by Joshua Williamson, Guillem March, and Rafa Sandoval, explores.
