Fortnite patch v6.22 change list

Fortnite’s latest patch has arrived and its got a few big additions, but not many small changes to go along with them.

The big new item in this latest patch, v6.22, is the heavy assault rifle, which shoots a little slower than the other rifles in the game, but does significantly more damage. Balloons will also be significantly more rare now, and the storm is going back to its lower max damage in the late game of eight rather than 10. There’s also a new big team game mode that focuses on the Cube Monster NPCs that were added to the game during the Fortnitemares Halloween event.

The Joker and Harley Quinn are coming to PUBG

The Joker and Harley Quinn from 2016’s Suicide Squad are coming to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, developer PUBG Corp. announced today. The two DC villains will make a guest appearance in PUBG as a pair of skins “soon.”

Beyond the announcement trailer, PUBG Corp. didn’t offer much in the way of details about when and how Joker and Harley would appear or how their inclusion will impact the game. The developer simply confirmed a fairly obvious teaser from last week that hinted at a prison break. However, it does look like Harley Quinn’s bat might become a new melee weapon for PUBG.

Escape From Tarkov makes everything ‘dirt-cheap’ ahead of server wipe

Escape From Tarkov, the over-the-top, session-based tactical shooter, has dramatically lowered the price of in-game items for a limited time. Fans are anticipating a new patch — and a complete server wipe — very shortly. But, for now at least, you can get access to some high-end gear for next to nothing. It’s a good way to preview end-game items, and get a feel for what’s waiting for you at the other end of its notorious grind.

The developers say they’ve reduced the prices on everything, from assault rifle optics to body armor. Something like an M4 rifle has been reduced from $750 in in-game currency ... to $8. That change dramatically levels the playing field for newbies and experienced players alike.

New Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer brings Tangled’s Rapunzel and Flynn Rider into action

A new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 shows off the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled, home of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.

Sora and his friends stumble upon Rapunzel’s tower. The free-spirited heroine descends in a flurry of golden hair, determined to see the outside world. Charming thief Flynn Rider says that he could escort her to the Kingdom, but Sora and his friends seem more equipped for combatting the strange creatures that have sprouted up (quite literally, since they seem to be plant-based), so they all team up and galavant across the Kingdom of Corona.

Ingress relaunches as Ingress Prime, includes 100-percent more anime

Niantic is back with a new, free-to-play game — or rather, a new revision of an oldie. Ingress Prime launched today on the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android, and it’s a major redux of the original augmented-reality mobile game.

Much like the initial version of Ingress, this latest project combines Niantic’s real-world tech with location scouting. Unlike Pokémon Go, Niantic’s bigger hit, players assume the role of agents, exploring the world to identify and capture portals to collect Exotic Matter. Ingress Prime’s gameplay coheres around a storyline; not only are players special agents in service of this sci-fi goal, but they belong to one of two sides as they compete for total domination of the world’s portals.

K/DA, Riot Games’ pop girl group, explained

Have you seen a girl with a demon face bandanna all over your social media feeds? Or maybe a fox girl with dyed blonde hair? It’s all part of the world of League of Legends, which has its own fictional K-pop group, who appeared at this weekend’s World Championship Finals.

If you’re not immersed in League of Legends, that may be a lot to absorb. But what you need to know is that League of Legends developer Riot Games debuted a new song and video, “Pop/Stars,” at the game’s championship in Incheon, South Korea. The band behind the song is known as K/DA, and it’s made up of real singers, including two members of the K-pop group (G)I-dle. The video for “Pop/Star” stars League characters, however, and the whole thing is an elaborate promotion designed to sell new skins for the game.

And people online — even people who don’t play League of Legends — are absolutely eating it up. Akali, especially.

Beyond the edge of the map in Red Dead Redemption 2, things get wild

Beyond the edge of the map in Red Dead Redemption 2, things get wild

Open-world games give players incredible freedom to explore, and Red Dead Redemption 2 is no exception. The Western fantasy drops you onto a horse and doesn’t pressure you all that much to do any one thing in particular. So far, I’ve spent most of my time hunting white-tailed deer along the Dakota River and bringing back venison for the camp. But what happens if you dig in your spurs and just head off in one direction?

[Ed. note: What follows contains spoilers for both the original Red Dead Redemption and the sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2.]

NFL skins are coming to Fortnite

The National Football League is partnering with Epic Games to bring NFL-themed skins to Fortnite. Uniforms from all 32 teams will be available Friday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. ET.

Fortnite dances crept into the sports world early last year, making their way into the end zones of NFL games during the 2017-18 season. It only makes sense, really, that the most popular professional sport in the United States would want to partner with the most popular video game in the world.
