Fortnite Guide: Five Highest Elevations On The Island (Season 8, Week 6)

about X hours ago from

Another week, another set of Fortnite challenges. For those looking to unlock everything in the Season 8 Battle Pass, it's crucial that all the mini-quests are completed so the Battle Stars needed to level up the pass and get access to the cosmetics are earned. While the majority of Season 8, Week 6's challenges are fairly straightforward, there's one that could prove to be quite tricky: Visit the five highest elevations on the island.

The Fortnite island is full of elevated areas, so it may be quite time-consuming to run around guessing which ones are the highest of them all. To speed things up for you, we've got a quick breakdown of exactly where you should go. Thankfully, a number of them are located pretty close together, so that makes completing the task even quicker.

The first of the locations is the volcano crater, naturally. After that you'll need to book it to the west side of the Island. Head towards Snobby Shores but stop on the east side of it because, as you'll no doubt see, there are two mountains on the way there--simply make your way to the top of those and you're good to go. After that, it's time to head south into the colder part of the map. The final two elevated locations are the top of the castle at Polar Peak and then the submarine near frosty flights. Once you've been to those locations, it's done. Good job.

Borderlands Games Getting Review-Bombed Over Borderlands 3's Epic Exclusivity

about X hours ago from

The Epic Games Store has been snatching up exclusivity deals as a shot against the bow of Steam, the biggest digital PC game storefront. The company's latest score is Borderlands 3, and some fans are not happy about it. So not-happy, in fact, that they've resorted to review bombing the older games that made them fans in the first place.

Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel have all suffered a spate of negative reviews on Steam. Each is rated as "Positive" or "Very Positive" for overall reviews, but "Mixed" or "Mostly Negative" in hundreds or thousands of recent reviews. Many of the negative reviews explicitly mention the Epic Store. Tales from the Borderlands, which was developed by Telltale Games instead of Gearbox, has been mostly spared.

Borderlands 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Store until April 2020, giving it a six-month window that is shorter than many of the year-long exclusivity periods. The release date of September 13 had leaked before the official announcement, and in that leak a video also showed an Epic Store logo, conspicuously without a Steam logo.

Control May Be Remedy Entertainment's Most Interesting Game Since Alan Wake

Control May Be Remedy Entertainment's Most Interesting Game Since Alan Wake

For many of the attendees who saw Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 2018 it was the game that stole the show, but my hype ultimately went to a different demo: Remedy Entertainment's Control. The dazzling combat I was shown, set against the juxtaposition of paranormal oddities and rigid brutalist architecture, had me hooked. And now that I've had the chance to play it and been further exposed to its strange secrets, I'm even more convinced of Control's potential.

Remedy has a way with weird and has repeatedly proven that it knows how to stage a good fight. Control looks like an effort to double-down on these strengths. It puts you in the shoes of a veritable action hero with the power of levitation and telekinetic destruction. Her name is Jesse, and Control starts on her first day on the job as director of the Federal Bureau of Control. The agency is in charge of studying and containing that which defies the laws of science, but after a mysterious force known as the Hiss floods the halls of the bureau, Jesse will have to confront and take down possessed coworkers, demonic entities, and pulsating, corrupted masses of energy.

Fortnite Week 8 Challenges: Highest Elevations; Wooden Rabbit, Stone Pig, Metal Llama; And More

Fortnite Week 8 Challenges: Highest Elevations; Wooden Rabbit, Stone Pig, Metal Llama; And More

Load up Fortnite because there's a new batch of challenges to do. We're now in Season 8, Week 6, which means there are new Battle Stars to be earned. As always, there's a set of challenges that is available to everyone and then another group of challenges that are exclusively for those who have spent V-Bucks on a Battle Pass. Here's what's on tap for this week.

In the free section for Week 6, players will need to find the highest elevations on the island, visit three specific landmarks, and then take out opponents in Lazy Lagoon or Frosty Flight. If you've got the Battle Pass, you'll need to search where the knife points on the treasure map loading screen, land at five different locations as part of a multi-stage challenge, use throwable items, and bring down enemies with either the Flint-Knock Pistol or Boom Bow. Take a look at the full list of challenges below.

The final challenge in the Battle Pass section for Week 6 makes good use of one of the newer additions to Fortnite. The Boom Bow was introduced in Fortnite's 8.20 content update, and uses shotgun shells that explode on impact. Holding fire increases draw strength and will also up the arrow's speed and the damage. Save the World mode gets its own new weapon as well, the Cannonade Launcher.

New Terminator: Dark Fate Images Reveal Arnold Back As The T-800

Like the titular cyborg killing machine, the Terminator movies refuse to die. Despite the commercial disappointment of 2015's Terminator Genisys, the series continues this year with Terminator: Dark Fate. The movie is directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller and hits theaters in November. A new batch of images have now been released.

The pictures show the movie's main cast members. There's original stars Linda Hamilton, who reprises her role as Sarah Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800. The new stars includes Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Gabriel Luna (Agents of SHIELD), Diego Boneta (Pretty Little Liars), and Colombian star Natalia Reyes in her first Hollywood movie. They don't exactly give anything away about the movie itself, but it's great to see Hamilton and Schwarzenegger in their iconic roles. Check them out below.

The other big name returning for Terminator: Dark Fate is series creator James Cameron, who produces this one. The movie is reportedly a direct sequel to 1991's Terminator 2 and will ignore the three movies in-between. It hits theaters on November 1, 2019.
