Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Week 5 Guide (Feb. 5-12)

It's time for another weekly reset in Destiny 2 has arrived, and that means a new Ascendant Challenge as the time loop in the Dreaming City resets yet again. We're back to the start of a three-week cycle as the Awoken continue to battle the curse. We're nearing the end of Season 5, but if you're still looking to reach the 650 level cap before the impending release of the next expansion, Joker's Wild, this is a great way to get there. Here's what you need to do and where to go to find the portal that can net you some Powerful gear.

Like in past weeks, the Ascendant Challenge involves using a specific item (a Tincture of Queensfoil) to receive the Ascendance buff. This allows you to see a Taken portal that sends you to the Ascendant Plane to do a mission of sorts. But the portal's location and your objective has been different each week, and that's true for Week 5. Before starting, though, be sure to grab the corresponding bounty from Petra, as that's the key to earning a piece of Powerful gear.

Watch The Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Kast Livestream Here

about X hours ago from

NetherRealm will hold its first livestream for Mortal Kombat 11, after having delayed the event due to severe and dangerous cold in the studio's home city of Chicago. It will start at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, and we expect to see it drop more details on the upcoming fighting game. Come right back here at that time to watch it all.

We're likely to get our first look at the recently announced Kano in action during the stream, possibly along with other character reveals and a new Fatality or two. NetherRealm could also use the opportunity to debut new skins or other cosmetic items, given that the sequel is offering deep customization options.

Mortal Kombat 11 will launch with three editions: a $60 standard edition, $100 premium edition, and $300 Kollector's Edition. The most expensive version comes with a Scorpion mask for all your cosplay needs. Pre-ordering any version will get you Shao Kahn and beta access.

Fortnite 7.30 Content Update Patch Notes: Bottle Rockets, Campfires, And More

about X hours ago from

Fortnite's 7.30 content update is now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. The patch notes for this week's update detail a variety of tweaks and additions to the hit battle royale game, including a new weapon, limited-time mode, and more.

Headlining this week's content update is the previously teased Bottle Rocket, a new item that will rain explosives down on structures when thrown. Bottle Rockets drop in stacks of two and can be found either as floor loot or in chests, Vending Machines, Supply Llamas, and Supply Drops.

To make room for Bottle Rockets, Epic has vaulted another older item: the Boom Box. The developer has also made some major changes to environmental campfires. Previously, these campfire pits were decorative, but now they can be lit by interacting with them. Doing this will effectively turn them into a Cozy Campfire, healing all players within their radius for a limited time. However, each campfire can only be used once per match.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Breaks Series Sales Records

about X hours ago from

Kingdom Hearts 3 has shipped more than five million copies, according to Square Enix. The figure, which includes digital and physical sales, makes it the fastest selling game in the series. This is a shipped figure instead of sold through to customers, but it's still an impressive feat for the first week on the market.

The high sales make sense, given the anticipation for this third installment. Kingdom Hearts 2 released more than a decade ago, so fans have been waiting a long time for the conclusion of the story. Though the time between has been filled with side-stories that fill in some gaps, like Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance, the first numbered entry in so long was bound to make a splash.

Apex Legends Free Bonuses On PS Plus And EA/Origin Access

Apex Legends Free Bonuses On PS Plus And EA/Origin Access

Apex Legends surprise-launched without much pre-release hype, so you may have missed that some platforms are offering bonus packs for the free-to-play shooter. If you subscribe to Origin Access, PlayStation Plus, or the Xbox-exclusive EA Access, you already have some extra loot waiting for you.

Both the Origin Access and EA Access bonus packs are given automatically the first time you log in. Each will give you an epic weapon skin, a banner card badge, and 1,000 Apex coins. The PlayStation Plus bonus is a separate item that has to be manually downloaded from the PlayStation Store. It gets you two PlayStation-themed weapon camos (Flatline and RE45), along with character camos and banners for Gibraltar and Bloodhound.

The Apex Coins can be traded in for Apex Packs, the game's version of loot boxes. That means you'll probably score at least a few random cosmetic items. The Apex Packs can also hold crafting materials, which are used to purchase new skins. Starting in March, Respawn will also be offering a Battle Pass similar to Fortnite.
