Fortnite Reload Mode Is Live, Exclusive Loot Available For Those Who Like A Challenge

Game News - 2 hours 5 min ago

Fortnite is going back to its roots with the launch of Fortnite Reload, an exciting new mode available for both Battle Royale and Zero Build. Featuring classic weapons, iconic locations, and an old-school Fortnite aesthetic, Fortnite Reload is a futuristic twist on Fortnite's past.

Fortnite Reload (which launched just after Saturday's Metallica concert) takes place on a smaller map that includes familiar locales like Tilted Towers and Retail Row, where 10 four-person squads will face off inside a Storm that shrinks much faster than it does in standard matches.

Fortnite Reload also features a twist that seems to take inspiration from Call of Duty: Warzone--players who are eliminated can reboot, provided that at least one of their fellow squadmates is alive. But there are some limitations. Here's how rebooting works in Fortnite Reload:

Inside Out 2 Passes Dune 2 To Become 2024's Highest Grossing Movie

Game News - 2 hours 17 min ago

For the last few years, Pixar's animated flicks haven't struck box office gold in the way that the studio's earlier films did. Last year's Elemental proved to have legs, but Inside Out 2 is the comeback that Pixar was hoping for. After opening last weekend with$154.4 million, Inside Out 2 is estimated to have added $100 million this past weekend, making it only the seventh film to hit that milestone in its second weekend. Now, Inside Out 2 has officially passed Dune: Part Two to become the highest grossing movie of 2024.

Via Deadline, Inside Out 2's new running totals are $355 million domestically, and $724 million worldwide. By comparison, Dune: Part Two had $282 million domestically, and $711 million worldwide. Inside Out 2's continuing dominance could mean that next weekend's new arrival, A Quiet Place: Day One, may have to settle for second place.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die continued to perform well in second place with $18.7 million in its third weekend, which brings its total to $146.9 million. The Bikeriders made its debut with a third place finish and $10 million. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes edged closer to the end of its second month at the box office by coming in fourth place with $3.7 million. Thus far, the latest Planet of the Apes film has $164.4 million. Rounding out the top five, The Garfield Movie added $3.6 million to its new $85.1 million total.

Palworld - How To Make And Use Plasteel

Game News - 2 hours 25 min ago

Among the many new materials that arrived with the Sakurajima DLC in Palworld is Plasteel. This is the ultimate material for any player looking to make some endgame content that will stack up against anything out in the world. Plasteel is primarily used to make armor, weapons, and other high-level base equipment. It's also a requirement to make the best Sphere in Palworld, which is extra important for capturing the top Pals from the Sakurajima DLC.

To see the entire process of crafting and using Plasteel in Palworld, take a look below.

Crafting Plasteel in Palworld

Plasteel is unlocked through the Technology menu in Palworld. You can unlock it for four Technology Points once you reach level 50, which used to be the maximum level in the game. Following the Sakurajima DLC, the max level is now level 55, and you'll find many uses for Plasteel within these new levels.

Palworld - How To Start Sakurajima DLC

Game News - 2 hours 25 min ago

The first major expansion in Palworld has finally arrived in the form of the Sakurajima DLC. This update delivers a new island, dozens of Pals, and five extra levels to grind through in the Technology menu. While you can experience some of this content from the moment you boot up an old save, most of the DLC requires you to visit a specific location on the map.

Below, you can see exactly where to go to start the Sakurajima DLC in Palworld.

Finding the Sakurajima Island in Palworld

As you might expect, a majority of the new content in the DLC resides on the new Sakurajima Island. This island isn't on a separate map from the original island, but you won't be able to see it right when you load up an old or new save. Instead, you need to discover the island and uncover its surroundings like you did with the original Palpagos Islands map.

Dr Disrespect's Twitch Ban Was Reportedly Due To Messaging A Minor

Game News - 2 hours 33 min ago

Four years ago, Twitch banned popular streamer Dr Disrespect AKA Herschel "Guy" Beahm from its platform for unknown reasons. According to a new report, Beahm's ban was allegedly the result of him texting a minor through Twitch's now-defunct Whispers messaging system and offering to meet up with them at Twitchcon.

A former Twitch employee who asked to remain anonymous when they spoke to The Verge explained that a "significant" amount of time had passed from when Beahm had allegedly sent the messages between himself and the minor, and when the moderation report about the messages was filed.

Possibly linked to the claims are new comments from Cody Conners, another former Twitch employee, who worked in the company's strategic partnerships team. While Beahm isn't named in the X/Twitter posts, Conners did write last week "He got banned because [he] got caught sexting a minor in the then-existing Twitch Whispers product. He was trying to meet up with her at TwitchCon. The powers that be could read in plain text."

At Least One Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Boss Is Just Two Guys In A Costume

Game News - Mon, 06/24/2024 - 23:25

Shadow of the Erdtree doesn't waste any time reminding you that you will die frequently, as an early encounter with the Divine Beast Dancing Lion boss is brutal. Inspired by Chinese lion dances, it turns out that this boss is actually two dudes in a coat masquerading as a monster and not some horrible abomination dreamt up by its creators. It's just like all those kids in Saturday-morning cartoons pretending to be adults when they hid themselves under a trenchcoat and combined their height to sneak past concert security.

As discovered by YouTuber BonfireVN (via Endgadget), Divine Beast Dancing Lion is comprised of one person in the front who attacks while pantomiming as a monster, while another crouched enemy in the rear controls the body. This is pretty accurate to how real-life Chinese lion dancers perform, and From Software went so far as to animate both of the deadly dancers beneath the costume. It turns out that not everything has to be a grotesque monster after all. It's a lovely extra layer of detail, even though you won't have time to see it because you'll be too busy dodging its attacks.

If you're just getting started and you're finding Shadow of the Erdtree to be pretty tough, you can check out our Elden Ring DLC guides hub for some tips and tricks. The expansion has been a critical hit--GameSpot's first review in 2024 that scored a perfect 10--and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has congratulated From Software for breaking a long-standing record set by the Polish studio.

War Thunder Dev Apologizes After Accidentally Using Image Of Challenger Disaster

Game News - Mon, 06/24/2024 - 23:06

War Thunder developer Gaijin Entertainment has issued an apology after accidentally using a picture of the Space Shuttle Challenger exploding in the game's artwork.

With each new patch released for War Thunder, a new loading screen is added that reflects its contents, and these can also be downloaded as wallpapers from the developer's website. In this case, the most-recent screens include War Thunder's newest Seek & Destroy update, but appeared to also show an infamous image of the Challenger explosion. The issue was first noticed by users on Reddit as well as those on War Thunder's forums.

At first, some users speculated that it could've been an AI image, but Gaijin Entertainment addressed the issue, saying, "Hey guys, yeah please accept our apologies for this, the picture was part of an aerial explosion reference pack used by our artists and the context was lost." Gaijin also said the key art would be changed on Monday and it's taking steps to make sure that this issue doesn't happen again.
