Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass revealed

Fortnite’s newest season has arrived and that means an all-new Battle Pass full of new skins, gliders and pets.

This time around, the Battle Pass has a winter theme, and that means characters are bundled up in their new skins with parkas and winter coats — except for Santa who only has a tactical vest on. Adding to last season’s addition of pets, this season is also bringing with it a new hamster friend and an ice-wolf puppy with glowing eyes.

Afghanistan ’11, featuring US and Taliban forces, removed from App Store

The war in Afghanistan has stretched on for 17 long years. Action against the Taliban has embroiled generations of United States servicemembers, becoming at once a modern conflict and a historical one. Among the very best ways to learn about that war is through Slitherine’s well-regarded strategy game Afghanistan ’11.

Unfortunately, Apple has elected to remove that title from the App Store. In an email sent to Slitherine, the software and hardware giant called out the game for depicting “a specific government or other real entity as the enemies.” The game was delisted the same day.

5 things to know about Fortnite’s season 7 patch

Fortnite season 7 is here and rather than change everything up with a new supernatural element, Epic is keeping things a little more basic with this new winter-themed season.

Among the largest additions coming to the game with this new season is a new vehicle, the X-4 Stormwing, an airplane that allows you to fly all around the map. Speaking of the map, there are quite a few new cities added this time around including places with names like Frosty Flights, Polar Peak and Happy Hamlet. There’s also an entirely new biome on the map called Iceberg which is probably about as cold, frozen and slippery as you would expect.

Bethesda support site leaks Fallout 76 customers’ personal info

It’s not a good time for Bethesda. The launch of Fallout 76 has been messy, with complaints ranging from the game’s stability and balance to the items included with the game’s collectors edition. The game’s “Power Armor” edition came with a functional Brotherhood of Steel helmet and a canvas bag that later turned out to be a nylon replacement. Bethesda originally offered customers a small amount of in-game currency, and later announced plans to replace the nylon bags with canvas upgrades.

That should be a happy end to the story, but the tale of woe continues as customers are reporting that they were able to access other customers’ personal data when submitting support tickets through Bethesda’s online help system.

5 things to know about Fortnite’s Creative mode

Fortnite Battle Royale has always been a little bit different from other games that let players build things in-game. Rather than players flexing their creative muscles first and learning practical uses for them later, Fortnite asks you to learn how to build for blocking bullets right off the bat. So, most players learned to make small utilitarian buildings, but many longed for something a little more complicated. Now, Epic is bringing that to game with Fortnite’s new Creative mode.

Creative mode is dedicated to allowing players to create whatever their heart desires. This is a mode that many players, of both Battle Royale and Save the World, have been asking about for almost a year now, but now that we know exactly what’s included in the mode it’s clear why it took Epic so long to make: Creative mode is absolutely massive.
