Epic Games officially launched Fortnite Chapter 2 at 6 a.m. EST, in which players can drop into this Season 11 world and explore a new island with 13 locations.
The new installment is water-centric, which means new swimming abilities, fishing objectives and boats. There are also new characters to support to your team, which includes new healing powers, the ability to carry teammates and celebration moves like high fives.
The new world also features new hideouts — this includes a dumpster — explosives and weapons to do combat with.
Fortnite is known for revamping with a new theme every few months, so what happened this week is no shock (though this is by far the most drastic stunt pulled by Fortnite).
The game is extremely popular worldwide. March 2019 was the last time Epic Games released a statistic about the number of registered accounts: 250 million players.
Pleasant Park is another popular spot in Fortnite, and it returns for Chapter 2. It’s nearly identical to the old Pleasant, so you shouldn’t have much difficulty finding your way around.
Pleasant is in its Chapter 2 mirror to where it was located within the old map. It’s in the Northwest part of the map, closer to the center island.
The most difficult part of finding a new landing spot is not knowing where any of the chests are located. There are some awesome landing spots full of materials or natural shields, but it can sometimes be hard to find a gun. If you’re looking for the “old Fortnite” feel, land at one of these returning locations.
NetherRealm Studios has released the Kombat Pack trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. We already have Shang Tsung and Nightwolf added to the mix, but now we know the complete roadmap of the raming four characters. They are Sindel, The Terminator, Spawn, and The Joker. A couple of surprises did come out of this trailer, however. First, all of the characters are being spread out across several months into March of 2020. Next, we’re getting The Terminator before Sindel, and it’s the version from the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate. Arnold will be popping up on October 8th while Sindel will join on November 26th.
Disintegration is a new sci-fi, first-person shooter from V1 Interactive, the independent development studio co-founded by Marcus Lehto, former creative director at Bungie and co-creator of the Halo universe.
Players take on the role of integrated protagonist Romer Shoal, who’s rebelling against the integrated forces, which are now known as the Royonne.
The campaign plays out across the Rocky Mountains, the Arizona desert, the west coast of the US and Iceland.
While Disintegration was originally pitched as a 4-6-hour experience, Lehto said it now spans 13 missions across a 10-12-hour playthrough for an average player.
Last E3, Microsoft announcedHalo Infinite, the next installment in the popularXboxandPCfranchise. Today, during Microsoft’s E3 2019 presser, Microsoft and 343 Industries returned with theXbox Oneand PC game, and this time had a lot more to show and say about it. For example, it revealed it’s releasing fall 2020 on Xbox One, PC, and Project Scarlett (the next Xbox). It also provided a meaty look at the game via a new trailer, which you check out above.
Halo Infiniteis the third chapter in the Reclaimer Saga, and follows the events ofHalo 5: Guardians. That said, while it’s a follow-up toHalo 5, as you can see, it doesn’t have the number six anywhere in its title. And that’s because 343 Industries considers it a “spiritual reboot.”
