Fortnite Challenges Week 3: Ski Lodges, Ride Zipline, and More

It's that time of the week again, Fortnite fans. The latest batch of challenges is now live, which means there's more Battle Stars to be earned. If you've been on the grind for a while, you'll know how this goes, but if you're new to this, we'll get you caught up quickly. Challenges are split into two categories, with one set available to everyone and a second set exclusive to those that have paid for a Battle Pass.

As you complete challenges you earn Battle Stars, which in turn level up your Battle Pass and give you access to more cosmetics, including those oh so precious skins, among others. We're now in Season 7, Week 3, and the free set of challenges include riding a Zipline in five different matches and getting two eliminations with a Legendary weapon. On top of those two, there's a multi-stage challenge you can begin by landing at Lonely Lodge. Once that's done, you'll see further stages.

Meanwhile, paid Battle Pass owners will need to search seven chests at Polar Peak or Tomato Temple, ring a doorbell in two different named locations in a single match, and begin another multi-stage challenge by dealing 200 points of damage with a Shotgun. Finally in this tier, one of the challenges will require you to search between three ski lodges.

Uncharted Movie Loses Director

about X hours ago from

The Uncharted movie project has hit another stumbling block, as its director has reportedly now stepped down from his role. Shawn Levy was due to helm the Uncharted movie, but he is apparently busy with other projects.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Levy will direct Free Guy, another video game-themed film which was recently greenlit by 20th Century Fox. His involvement in that project means he has stepped down from directing Uncharted, for which Sony is now searching for another director.

THR states Tom Holland is still set to portray Nathan Drake, but Levy's resignation is a blow to the project, which has been in the works for years and has previously had three other directors fail to get it off the ground. The movie is reportedly a prequel to the games, with a script having been written by Blacklist director Joe Carnahan.

Spider-Man PS4 Will Let You Dress As The Worst Version Of The Character

about X hours ago from

Insomniac Games' Spider-Man is one of the best PlayStation 4 releases of 2018 and undoubtedly the best Spider-Man game of all time. Since its launch the studio has supported the title with DLC that includes extra story missions and, more importantly, brand new outfits for everyone's favourite web slinger. Thus far we've had the Spider-Clan outfit from Marvel's Mangaverse, Spider-UK from Edge of Spider-Verse, and numerous other cool costumes. It's been great.

However, we've now hit a bit of rough spot with Spidey outfit releases. In the newest update for the PS4 game, Sony and Insomniac will include the suit from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies, in which Peter Parker and his crime fighting alter-ego were played by absolute charisma void Tobey Maguire.

For those that grew up with these movies and enjoyed them, this is great news and I'm happy for them; they get to cut about New York in a Spidey outfit they know and love. And it's free, so you really can't complain.

Surprise! Sony Launches New Lemmings Game, Out Now

about X hours ago from

Without warning, Sony has launched a brand-new Lemmings game for mobile. Simply titled Lemmings, the game is out now for iOS and Android.

It appears the new game attempts to stay true to the Lemmings releases from the '90s, while modernizing the series for mobile devices. "We took the Lemmings experience that people know and love and re-engineered it to make the most of smartphones and tablets," developer Sad Puppy wrote on the PlayStation Blog. "We've designed levels that are played in portrait orientation, as this is the most comfortable position to hold a device with one hand.

"We worked tirelessly on touch controls, removing secondary elements like camera control and making it as simple for players to assess the level, plan a strategy and execute it. It's the Lemmings game you know and love, redesigned for the best experience on your device. Under your direction, they'll dig, climb, build, block and fall through levels, with an ease of control that is both fun and challenging."

Observation's Sinister AI Threat Sets Up A Gripping Story

Observation's Sinister AI Threat Sets Up A Gripping Story

Dr. Emma Fisher finds herself aboard the space station Observation. Something catastrophic has occurred, but she's not sure what or how. All she has to guide her is the station's artificial intelligence, SAM, but it's unclear whether it has her best interests in mind.

2001: A Space Odyssey is a clear influence for Observation, and developer No Code--which previously made 2017's Stories Untold--doesn't shy away from that. Observation oozes a retro aesthetic, tapping into the dusty nostalgia in those of us who grew up with cathode-ray tube monitors and fuzzy VHS tapes. It comes as no surprise then that the game's Creative Director previously worked on Alien Isolation. The same attention to detail that brought the Sevastopol to life is present aboard the Observation.

Latest John Wick Chapter 3 Image Introduces New Canine Cast

The first two John Wick movies provided even the most jaded film fan with some of the most exciting action of recent years, and expectations are high for the upcoming third entry. John Wick: Chapter 3 arrives in May, and a new image has been released.

The picture comes via Entertainment Weekly. As fans of the series will know, retired hitman Wick's troubles began in the first movie when his beloved dog, left by his dead wife, was killed. But it looks like our hero, played once more by Keanu Reeves, has some new canine friends in Chapter 3. The dogs belong to Sofia, a new character played by Halle Berry. Check the image out below.

In an interview with EW, Reeves revealed that Berry's character "has a past with John," and ends up helping him as he is hunted by rival assassins. In addition, director Chad Stahelski provided some information about Sofia's furry pals. "Whereas John's puppy was symbolic of his wife, Halle's two dogs are symbolic of someone she's lost," he said. Stahelski also revealed that there is an action scene centered around them.
