Fortnite: Battle Royale – Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

Fortnite: Battle Royale – Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The second week of Fortnite’s fifth season started this morning, and with it comes a challenge you might find pretty tricky to complete: “Search between an oasis, rock archway, and dinosaurs.”

Off of the name alone, you’d be right in assuming the end location is in the newly added dessert, but where exactly? We’ll show you:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

As you can see, you’re aiming for a spot that’s north of the unnamed town in the southeastern part of the map. Specifically what you’re looking for is a small mountain. The Battle Star is on the side of that mountain.

To save yourself the trouble of building up to it, you can land right on it if you keep an eye out for the rock outcropping and the cactus on the side of that mountain. You can see them just to the right of our umbrella-wielding friend here:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

Once you land there, the Battle Star will be right smack dab between the rock and the cactus. Bingo, an easy tier on your Battle Pass complete.

You can see the dinosaurs just to the south and east of this location:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The rock archway is to the north and east, and the oasis is just over to the west.

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

And here’s the exact location of the Battle Star:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The Battle Star is located right under the bigger mesa, but above the small stream that runs at ground level from the Oasis—so you’ll either need to drop down from above or build up to that small ledge in-between if you don’t glide there directly. It’s on the lower, more southern ledge on the eastern flank of the big mesa.

Remember: Going here right away is risky. Players will flock to this point on the map right when the challenge goes live, so be prepared to run or fight.

You might want to do both, though running up to Paradise Palms isn’t a bad idea either, since eliminating players in that urban area is one of this week’s other 10 star challenges. You might also play some 50 vs 50 if you want to avoid a fight since—if your team has that half of the map—you’ll be able to go here with a lower chance of being attacked.

Whatever course you take, hopefully this guide helps you—not only on your path to Tier 100, but also in your quest to unlock the secret Road Trip Outfit. For that one you’ll need to complete every weekly challenge for seven separate weeks. No small task, but a badge of honor for anyone with the skill and gumption to make it happen.

4G Speed: India positions behind Pakistan, remains at 109th place out of 124 nations

4G Speed: India positions behind Pakistan, remains at 109th place out of 124 nations

4G Speed: India positions behind Pakistan, remains at 109th place out of 124 nations

4G Speed : The accessibility of 4G has enhanced fundamentally in India as of late yet the speed at which these 4G associations work stay terrible. Truth be told, so terrible is the 4G speed offered by telecom organizations that it is more regrettable than what 4G clients in neighboring Pakistan get.

4G Speed: India positions behind Pakistan, remains at 109th place out of 124 nations

When 5G preliminaries and optic-based broadband are guaranteed by telecom mammoths in the nation, a report from speed testing stage Ookla uncovers the wretched situation of India’s 4G web network.

India may have prevailing with regards to making 4G accessible in more territories however that hasn’t helped the issue of recordings buffering and delaying on 4G associations. As indicated by an Economic Times report, the normal 4G LTE information speed in India has stayed consistent for over multi year at around 6.1Mbps, considerably less than the worldwide normal of around 17Mbps. This makes the nation one of the slowest among 124 nations on the rundown as far as 4G speeds.

India positions 109th in the rundown of 124 nations. The normal download speed on 4G associations in India is not as much as what telephone clients in neighboring nations like Pakistan, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka get. The normal 4G download velocities of Pakistan, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka are 13.56 Mbps, 15.56 Mbps, and 13.95 Mbps, separately.

In India, the normal speed is 9.12 Mbps. As per Ookla report, the development of cell phone clients and an expansion in the quantity of portable web clients in India could be one reason for the moderate web association in India. At the point when there are more individuals on the portable web, the telecom systems get clog and that prompts poor speed.

Range designation could likewise be a purpose behind the poor 4G speed in India. “The range per administrator in India is low contrasted with different nations, which prompts low range per endorser, in this way moderate 4G organize speeds, Rajan Mathews, executive general of the Cellular Operators Association of India, was refered to as saying.

Netflix Stock Drops 14% – Subscriber Growth and Revenue fall short

Netflix Stock Drops 14% – Subscriber Growth and Revenue fall short

Netflix Stock Drops 14% - Subscriber Growth and Revenue fall short

Netflix plunged 14% in afterhours trading following an earnings report that showed its closely watched subscriber-growth metric hit a serious speed bump in the second quarter.

Netflix shares erased two months worth of stock gains after saying that it added about 5.2 million users in the second-quarter—a healthy increase in itself, yet significantly below what analysts had been forecasting. The company added 670,000 new subscribers in the US, compared with the 1.2 million forecast. International subscribers grew by 4.5 million, also below the 5.1 million consensus figure.


“We slowly adjust pricing over time to mitigate forex moves over the longer term, but when currency movements are rapid, they will affect our near term operating margin,” Netflix wrote. “We’ll tend to outperform our near term operating margin targets on dollar weakness and underperform on dollar strength.”

Adding to investor concerns, Netflix warned that it expected to add 5 million customers this quarter, which is not only below Wall Street forecasts, but also a slower pace than what Netflix saw a year ago.

Netflix has long been a volatile stock before the earnings report, share price of Netflix Stock had doubled in value since the beginning of 2018. Much of that rise came from a growing confidence among investors that the company’s seemingly flawless execution on its growth plans would continue.

Netflix Stock Drops 14% - Subscriber Growth and Revenue fall short

The subscriptions figures were especially disappointing considering that Netflix had been consistently adding more new subscribers than expected for several quarters running. Netflix Stock had risen between 2% and 14% following its earnings report in the previous four quarters.


Netflix revenue rose by 40% to $3.9 billion, roughly in line with analyst forecasts. Its net income rose to 85 cents a share, above the 79 cents Wall Street had been expecting.

Netflix shares erased two months worth of Netflix Stock gains after saying that it added about 5.2 million users in the second-quarter—a healthy increase in itself, yet significantly below what analysts had been forecasting. The company added 670,000 new subscribers in the US, compared with the 1.2 million forecast. International subscribers grew by 4.5 million, also below the 5.1 million consensus figure.

More than revenue or profit figures, Netflix investors look to the new-subscriptions metric as an indicator of its overall health, given that it shows whether the company’s aggressive investments in new programming are continuing to bring in a bigger audience.


“We continue to see debt as the most optimal choice, the most cost-effective source of capital for the company,” said Wells. “Obviously we’d love to get to that point where we’re organically and self-funding content, and we do see a point where we can get there. But until we do, we see as debt as the right choice in terms of cost of capital,” he said.

Netflix is projected to spend between 12 billion and $13 billion on original programming this year, significantly more than any of its rivals. In some ways, that kind of spending has paid off. Netflix received 112 Emmy nominations last week, surpassing HBO in the number of nominations for the first time. (Netflix Stock Slammed)

But for last quarter at least, that spending didn’t yield any new must-view programs like the breakout hit Stranger Things. Without enough hits like that, Netflix runs the risk of signing up fewer new subscribers or of losing them to other streaming rivals such as Amazon Prime Video or HBO.


“We had a strong but not stellar Q2,” Netflix execs wrote in their quarterly letter to shareholders. “This Q2, we over-forecasted global net additions… as acquisition growth was slightly lower than we projected.”

Netflix revenue rose by 40% to $3.9 billion, roughly in line with analyst forecasts. Its net income rose to 85 cents a share, above the 79 cents Wall Street had been expecting.

Google Map vs Apple Map – Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

Google Map vs Apple Map – Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

Apple is trying to get more people to use Apple Maps. Despite being available on every Apple device, Maps has never quite garnered the popularity of Google Maps or CityMapper. So developers are rebuilding the app from the ground up. The new Apple Maps, debuting later this year, will be faster to respond to roadblocks and delays, whether users are walking, driving or using public transportation, Macworld reports. New satellite imagery will allow Apple to map out trails (currently available on Google, but not Apple Maps).

Maps will send users in cars information about traffic. If you’re walking or cycling, Maps could recommend shortcuts through parks or trails.

Search results are also under improvement. The new search will prioritize local results, so the map will show the restaurant that’s closet, not one that’s two continents away.

The old version of Maps relied on data from deo data brokers like OpenStreetMap and TomTom. When new Maps premieres, it will have its own map, developed with “first-party data gathered by iPhones with a privacy-first methodology and its own fleet of cars packed with sensors and cameras,” according to TechCrunch. Apple Maps vans started circulating the streets in 2015. The data collected by the vans will make its debut in this new version of Maps.

Apple has gone to great lengths to preserve privacy while collecting travel data from iOS devices. Basically, the beginning and end points of each trip will never be sent to Apple (so the company will not be able to tell where you’re coming from and where you’re going to), and all data transmitted will be anonymized. This will allow the company to tell how many people are in transit, but not who is traveling.

The new Maps app will launch in San Francisco with iOS 12, and then expand around northern California in the fall.


Apple Maps vs. Google Maps: The Comparision


For nearly seven years, Google Maps was the de facto mapping service on iOS and macOS devices — until Apple decided to release a competing version of the software in 2012. However, what seemed like a smart move for the tech giant on paper ended up turning into a PR nightmare. Apple Maps received tons of criticism for incorrect directions, a lack of support for public transportation, and various other glitches and bugs that made the service nearly unusable.

Shortly after being removed as a default installation on Apple products, Google Maps became available as a free download in the App Store. For a time, Google Maps was the most popular free app on the platform. While both apps are similar in terms of function and cost, there are a few key differences that might influence which mapping service you use. We’ll lay them out for you here.

Interface

Before you’ve even entered a location or begun navigating, you’ll notice a few differences in the way maps are represented. On Apple Maps, the surfaces are flatter and show more default locations. The user interface is also clean and simple. You can search for a specific location using the search bar at the bottom of the screen and change the map settings (map, satellite, or transit) by tapping the information button in the upper right. Apple also has custom icons for landmarks such as the Empire State Building, and you can see the current weather at whatever location you’re looking at in the lower right.

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map  Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

As for Google Maps, there are fewer icons initially presented on the screen, but more options to change your map: Explore, driving, transit, satellite, terrain, traffic, and biking. Google also has 3D models of most buildings (i.e. The Empire State Building actually looks like the building and not just like a flat rectangle). Apple has these in some locations, but not as often as Google Maps. Both apps have a current location button on the screen — the arrow on Apple Maps and the bull’s-eye on Google Maps. Google also has a Google Assistant button, quick access to input an address, and settings for your Google account and map (Apple has these functions as well, but they are built into your device’s OS).

When it comes to the actual navigation screen, Apple’s is once again very simple (particularly if you choose driving as your mode of transportation). There are not a lot of icons on the screen, which limits distractions if you’re using the app while driving. If you zoom in or choose the walking option, you’ll see more locations. Google has slightly more icons, but most of them are gas stations and parking lots; places you’d likely stop at if you were driving. Similarly, if you choose the walking mode, you’ll see more general locations.

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map  Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

Both base their arrival estimations on current traffic conditions. Red sections along your route indicate heavy traffic, yellow is moderate traffic, and blue is no or little traffic. You may also see various alerts, from accidents to road closures. Google is a bit clearer when it comes to how traffic will impact your commute by showing the travel time in red to indicate there is heavy traffic. Other than the differences mentioned above, this section is very similar for both versions. Google has a few more options on the main screen, such as sound, compass, and quick search, making it easier to tweak your settings on the fly. This information is available on Apple Maps as well, but you have to pull up from the bottom portion of the screen and press the corresponding category, which makes it a bit trickier.

Standout features

There are some standout features for Apple Maps, such as is its integration with iOS. Tell Siri where you want to go, and she’ll start the process for you. You can also open maps, cancel an in-progress route, and make other small adjustments using just your voice. Apple Maps also uses vector graphics, which means you’ll end up using slightly less data than if you were using Google Maps. One of the coolest features for Apple Maps, though, is Flyover Mode. This feature enables you to explore densely populated urban centers in 3D landscapes composed of models of buildings and structures. Flyover also has what are known as City Tours, which guide you around various landmarks in a city. There is no real equivalent in Google Maps (although Google Tour Creator comes close).

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

As for Google, there is a lot that stands out for this service. Where Apple has Flyover mode, Google has Street View, which provides panoramic views of many streets around the world. Google also lets you customize your routes by adding stops and avoiding tolls. But two of the biggest draws for Google Maps are Google’s bicycle maps and offline accessibility. In a bike-friendly city, this is really handy, and Apple Maps simply doesn’t have that functionality. Apple Maps recently added bike-sharing stations to its list of places, but that’s not really the same, is it? Google also has primo offline planning for those with limited access to WiFi or data. While Apple Maps uses slightly less data than Google Maps, Google makes up for that by allowing you to download entire sections of maps for offline use.

Other differences

Another (and obvious) difference between Apple and Google’s mapping services is that one is owned by Google and the other is owned by Apple. This is worth considering when it comes to how your data is stored and when your app will be updated. Google has different policies when it comes to how much of your data is collected and what it can do with it. Google’s app has received criticism over the location history tracking page, and if you’re concerned about privacy, Apple Maps may be a better choice. On the other hand, Apple Maps is only updated when you update iOS, whereas Google rolls updates into Google Maps whenever it feels like it. It’s also worth noting that while both apps are currently available on Apple devices, you won’t be finding Apple Maps on your Android phone or Windows computer anytime soon, which could be problematic for users who don’t exclusively own Apple products.

Google Map vs Apple Map - Apple Map is Improving to Beat Google Map

On the software side of things, Google tends to have better small city mapping data than Apple. This might just be because Google Maps has been around for longer, but for people who don’t live in a big city, or don’t rely on a car for their primary mode of transportation, it can make a big difference. Google also has information regarding opening times of businesses, descriptions, photos, and user-generated star ratings. Apple has this as well, but less often. Apple does also include TripAdvisor, Yelp, and other third-party app ratings.

So while Apple Maps has made a lot of improvements over the last six years, and works well in major cities, Google Maps is still years ahead of the competition and definitely our top pick. Check out our Google Maps tips and tricks to get even more out of it.

Generally, after Apple items appear on the Eurasian database, they get propelled about multi month later, and if these models were to take after a similar example, we can expect a dispatch at some point in August or September. All the iPads keep running on iOS 11, while all the five Mac models keep running on macOS 10.13, which is peculiar as the new models ought to be in a perfect world running on iOS 12 and macOS Mojave that have just been reported.

5 New iPad, Mac Models Spotted in Eurasian Database, Launch Expected Soon

The Mac display numbers propose that the last three might be MacBook Pro SKUs, which are independently anticipated that would get a revive with Intel Coffee Lake CPUs on board. There’s additionally a section level MacBook anticipated from Apple that has been reputed for a long time now. The iPad display numbers are in no string position and are extremely irregular. As the new iPad (2018) was at that point propelled in March, we anticipate that an invigorate will the iPad Pros.

Prior in the year, new iPhone models, actually eleven of them, were spotted on the Eurasian database, showing the dispatch of the iPhone SE 2, however that didn’t occur. Truth be told, the organization is currently reputed to have racked that variation by and large.

Be that as it may, preceding this, all Eurasian database spottings have prompted discharges around multi month later. A valid example being the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2, and AirPods; every one of them were recorded on the database in August 2016, only multi month before the official arrival of the considerable number of gadgets. In February this year too, the new iPad (2018) with Pencil bolster was recorded on EEC, and we saw it divulge at the training occasion in March.

In any case, the iPhone posting in April was a missed shot by Apple, and it had never floundered on this convention until at that point. Perhaps it was a consider move by the tech goliath to break the anticipated example, or possibly the iPhone SE 2 saw a last minute wiping out because of differed creation challenges. The genuine truth is something we may never know.

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch – Getting a New Wireless Controller

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch - Getting a New Wireless Controller And is finally back in stocka

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch – Getting a New Wireless Controller

Nintendo’s much-sought NES Classic Edition is finally back in stock

Nintendo is relaunching the miniature NES Classic today, but that’s not all retro fans have to get excited about. 8BitDo has also announced a new, redesigned wireless controller for the micro-console, which is available today for preorder. The company previously made the best wireless option for the NES Classic back in 2016, and while the new version isn’t a huge shift, it does include a few notable improvements.

The biggest change is the addition of a dedicated home button, something Nintendo still hasn’t added, even with the SNES Classic follow-up. The gamepad also features a slightly different layout, with the four main face buttons arranged in a square, as opposed to a cross, and a new darker color scheme. Other than that, the new controller — dubbed the N30 2.4G — is virtually the same as its predecessor, with 2.4G wireless, a rechargeable battery, and a basic adaptor that makes for a simplified plug-and-play experience.

It’s not clear when the new controller will start shipping, but you can preorder now for $24.99.

Nintendo re-released the NES Classic Edition due to its popularity among fans. The company first released the miniaturized gaming system in 2016, when it sold out quickly due to high demand. And last year, the Japanese gaming giant released the Super NES Classic Edition which, as expected, quickly flew off shelves after retailers got a hold of them.

Available for $59.99, the NES Classic Edition brings back mid-1980s nostalgia for gamers. The re-released set includes 30 pre-loaded games, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda.


Where to Buy


Amazon

The NES Classic Edition is available on Amazon’s website, as well as in Amazon Books stores around the country. As of Friday morning, there were only a few gaming systems left on Amazon’s website, so act fast. Customers traveling to Amazon Books locations can check the availability at the store ahead of time using the Amazon app, the retail giant said.

Best Buy

Best Buy made the NES Classic Edition gaming systems available on June 29 in stores and online. However, by mid-morning on Friday, the console was already sold out online. Customers who lined up outside before they were re-released were only able to purchase one system per person, the company said.

It’s likely Best Buy will re-stock its shelves and online store with consoles, so keep checking back if you haven’t purchased one already.

GameStop

GameStop is also selling the NES Classic Edition, with products available online and in stores around the country. The NES Classic Edition will arrive by July 3 if purchased Friday, according to GameStop, and customers can check availability by calling their local store ahead of time.

Target

The NES Classic Edition was sold out on Target’s website as of Friday morning, but it’s possible products are still available in stores. Customers can check their store’s availability online here, where they can narrow their searches down to include locations near them with NES Classic Editions still available.

ThinkGeek

The product appeared to have been available online at ThinkGeek, but the site was sold out by mid-morning on Friday.

eBay

If you’re willing to pay a bit more, eBay may be an option. NES Classic Edition gaming consoles are available on the online store for around $80 and up, with some going for more than $100.

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

The new mode will give you the freedom to experiment in Fortnite’s world… once Epic Games gets version 4.5 to work

If you were hoping to get into the Playground limited time mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale tonight, you’re out of luck. Epic just confirmed that the highly-anticipated mode will not be returning tonight. It looks like we’ll have to wait for more info in the morning. There is not, at this moment, any estimate for when Playground will be returning.

Epic elaborated on the situation in a Reddit post, saying that there were “multiple teams” working on getting Playground back online. As with anything Fortnite, there’s a lot of pressure on those developers. The playground is a new creative mode that lets players explore the island, build and even scrimmage with their friends without the pressure of opponents in a battle royale. It’s essentially a private island for you and your friends, complete with respawns and extra building materials to let you run wild. It’s the sort of thing that players have been looking forward to for a long time.

The playground was actually live for a few moments this morning, and by all accounts, some people were able to sign in and go nuts with the new freewheeling exploration and building mode. Matchmaking problems and long queues reared their heads soon enough, and Epic took the mode down shortly after it went live. Players were…not pleased. The excitement surrounding the mode quickly turned to disappointment, and the long wait isn’t helping much.

In addition to the problems with Playground, Epic said it had received other reports of stability and performance issues. The developer issued a patch on PC early this evening to address those issues.

It’s important to remember that Fortnite adds content near-constantly and that unexpected problems can happen any time you add new features into the game. All in all, the game is pretty stable, especially when compared to some of its competition.

It’s been a long time since the last “Mario Party” diversion was accessible, yet that was on the Wii U support, which didn’t offer exceptionally well. For some, it’s presumable been quite a while since they’ve seen or played a “Mario Party” amusement.

Super Mario Party launches October 5 on Switch

So as one of Nintendo’s most famous establishments and one of the longest-running minigame arrangement ever, fans were charmed to see another passage going to the Nintendo Switch: “Super Mario Party.”

From the producer of the Armored Core franchise, Daemon X Machina is a gorgeous flying mech game with a neat art style and fast-paced combat filled with lots of explosions. Daemon X Machina, developed by Marvelous Games, launches in 2019 on Switch. Nintendo opened its presentation with a look at Daemon x Machina, a slick new game that features mech. Lots of mechs.

RIDLEY

Ridley — the giant, draconic boss from the Metroid series — has been a long-running meme among Smash Bros. fans, who have spent years demanding that series head Masahiro Sakurai put him in the game. Today, that dream comes true: Ridley (along with the already teased Inklings) is joining the roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

XENOBLADE CHRONICLES 2: TORNA – THE GOLDEN COUNTRY

The massive 2017 RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is getting even more DLC in September. Torna – The Golden Country, by the looks of the trailer, seems to be more substantial than the previous two DLC packs released in March. Torna – The Golden Country threads a new narrative into the game and will be available to those who purchased the season pass.

The outrageously popular battle royale game, Fortnite, has finally arrived on Switch. Available right now, you can play it both in console and portable mode.

OCTOPATH TRAVELER

Octopath Traveler, the Switch-exclusive RPG with a gorgeous retro-aesthetic, arrives on Switch on July 13. A demo has been available for a while (it’s great), but a new demo will land on the eShop on June 14.

OVERCOOKED 2

The frantic and fun cooking party game, Overcooked, is getting a sequel. Overcooked 2lands on Switch August 7. This time around, you can play multiplayer online, a huge plus for this co-op experience.

The More is here:

Yes, the brunt of Nintendo’s conference focused on Smash and the other titles above. A slew of additional titles were briefly highlighted in a packed sizzle reel, though:

  • Hollow Knight – available now
  • Killer Queen Black – 2018
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas – October 16
  • Arena of Valor – Fall 2018
  • Minecraft – June 21
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle – Donkey Kong Adventure – June 26
  • Pixark – Fall 2018
  • Just Dance 2019 – October 23
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ – 2018
  • Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion – Summer 2018
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – July 13
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy – June 29
  • Ninjalo – Spring 2019
  • Carcassonne – Holiday 2018
  • Mario Tennis Aces – June 22
  • Ark: Survival Evolved – Fall 2018
  • Wasteland 2 – Fall 2018
  • Fallout Shelter – available now
  • Paladins – available now
  • Dark Souls: Remastered – Summer 2018
  • SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy – September 7
  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate – August 28
  • Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – June 29
  • The World Ends with You – Fall 2018
  • Mega Man 11 – October 2
  • FIFA 19 – September 28

Nintendo knows people want games sooner rather than later

One of the biggest trends at this year’s E3 is how many games are coming out next year or later. (Spoiler alert: It’s most of them.)

Nintendo, on the other hand, spent most of its presentation talking about games coming out in the next six months.

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” arrives in December. “Super Mario Party” arrives in October. “Mario Tennis Aces” arrives later this month. “Fortnite” and “Hollow Knight” arrive today.

On the other hand, most of the bigger games coming to rival consoles have vague release dates. We don’t know when “Halo Infinite” is coming to Xbox One. “The Last Of Us” looks great, but we still don’t have a date – it’s probably sometime in 2019 though. And who knows when “The Elder Scrolls VI” or “Death Stranding” are coming?

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and More

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and More

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield and More

We’re technically into day three of E3 2018. Bethesda just puts together one of the best E3 conferences of all time, right out of nowhere.

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: EA kicked things off yesterday, and Microsoft had an extremely strong show earlier today (well, yesterday). But Bethesda wasn’t going to let Microsoft take all the glory, knocking it out of the park with the confirmation of The Elder Scrolls VI, Doom Eternal, and giving us more details about online RPG Fallout 76. There was even a performance from Andrew WK (the guy who sang Party Hard.)

When Bethesda announced it was showing off a new Fallout game at E3 this year, it was safe to assume that game would be the major focus of the show. That it would be what we were all be talking about afterwards.

In what I’d call one of the best E3 conferences in recent memory, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI, a new Doom, a new Wolfenstein, showed off Rage 2 and Fallout 76 (of course) and also showed off its first new IP in 25 years — a science fiction game called Starfield.


Let’s let’s Start in terms of Importance


Elder Scrolls VI

Twitch they did, though, at E3 2018. We finally got a solid announcement… and little else. But we now know that The Elder Scrolls 6 is in development.

For now, Bethesda isn’t ready to share details, but here’s everything we know about The Elder Scrolls 6 so far, based on rumors and interviews about the release date, location, and more. Keep track of this hub for updates as we learn more.

Before showing the teaser for The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3, Bethesda’s Todd Howard showed another trailer for Starfield, Bethesda’s first new wholly original franchise in 25 years (Fallout was originally an Interplay joint, remember). We don’t know much about Starfield, but we know that it’s coming before The Elder Scrolls 6.

“Starfield is a game we’ve spent years thinking about and working on, something we feel uniquely positioned to pull off, and we’re incredibly excited about,” Howard said. “But we’re also building toward the game after that… and it’s the one you keep asking about.”

  • Release Date

Years away. It’s not coming until after Starfield, Bethesda’s next big project, which itself has no release date and only a teaser trailer. Full development on The Elder Scrolls 6 likely won’t start until that project is finished, which likely puts The Elder Scrolls 6’s release date sometime in the early 2021s. We know—that’s a long wait.

“But we’re also building toward the game after that… and it’s the one you keep asking about.”

This teaser means that the new Starfield game will be released before The Elder Scrolls 6, which could mean fans will be waiting several years for the next adventure.

No official release date was announced for The Elder Scrolls 6, but fans should expect more details at next years E3 2019 conference.

A release date will likely be scheduled for some time after 2021.

This release date would mean that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be on the PS5, should it happen.

Sony has already said they won’t be unveiling any new hardware at E3 2018, but fans are still hoping for a big surprise from PlayStation.

Given that the release will not be for another few years at least, it could be on a whole new console system, especially after rumours surfaced of a new PS5 being released from Sony.

Sony has not officially announced when they will be launching a PS5, though fans speculate it could be released anywhere between 2018 and 2021.


Starfield

Bethesda’s sci-fi epic. The rumours are true, Bethesda’s next adventure will be headed to space.

At its E3 2018 press conference Sunday, Bethesda confirmed that the long-rumoured title Starfield is indeed happening.

“Starfield is a game we’ve spent years thinking about and working on,” Bethesda director and executive producer Todd Howard told the crowd at E3. As Bethesda itself noted, it’s been a long time since it released a brand-new franchise.

  • Release Date

So far, no platforms or dates have been attached to Starfield, but for fans waiting for years for an official confirmation, just knowing it’s a thing may be enough for now.

Bethesda has a reputation for turning games around soon after announced a new adventure.

When they announced Fallout 4 in 2015, they managed to release the game less than six months after its initial announcement, though fans should not expect the same to happen with Starfield.

No official release date has been confirmed for Starfield, with the game to get more details at E3 2019 next year.

Fan theorists suggest Bethesda released this trailer at E3 2018 to avoid inevitable leaks of the trailer later on down the line, giving them control of what is released and when.


Fallout 76

Fallout 76 is a new type of online experience.

Earlier at Microsoft’s E3 conference, you’d be forgiven for thinking Fallout 76 was a brand-new Fallout game.

It is expressly an online video game. “Of course you can play this solo,” explained Howard. But he also mentioned that Fallout 76 is “entirely online”.

Fallout 76 was announced just a couple of weeks ago. We now know it’s coming out November 14 this year, and we also know the game will be getting a beta–the Break-it Early Test Application. Finally, the game is getting a cool-looking collectors’ edition that contains a glow-in-the-dark map and real, wearable Power Suit helmet.

  • The idea of Fallout 76

Every human you meet in the world is an actual human being in real life. But Howard stressed that this is a game that will be played with dozens of other players, not hundreds. Survival is the focus.

Howard did an incredible job of communicating the concept of this game to a player-base that might not interested in playing an online version of Fallout. “It’s a little bit scary,” he admitted but tried to communicate that it was a journey he hoped to take with a community used to single-player experiences.

  • Release Date

Fallout 76 launching this November – Bethesda Game Studios holding a beta. November 14, 2018. Not long!

Fallout 76’s titular vault will open Nov. 14, 2018, publisher Bethesda Softworks announced today during its BE3 Showcase ahead of E3 2018.

Bethesda announced Fallout 76 at the end of May with a teaser trailer showing off the well-maintained Vault 76. The vault, which was mentioned in both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, was designed for humanity to be able to rebuild civilization after The Great War when a nuclear apocalypse destroyed much of the life on Earth. Fallout 76 takes place in 2102, just 25 years after the bombs fell; it is the earliest game in the series’ timeline. READ MORE HERE…


Rage 2

Rage 2 was the sequel nobody asked for, but we’re getting it, so it might as well be a souped-up shooter in the style of Mad Max: Fury Road by a developer who literally just got done making a Mad Max video game.

Considering the aesthetic we’ve seen so far, Rage 2 is everything you thought it might be: It’s pitching itself as a frenetically paced shooter. Think Bulletstorm, think Sunset Overdrive. This could be a lot of fun.

This Rage 2 trailer came about after a teaser trailer was first leaked online early on May 14, before officially being unveiled by Bethesda later on the same day. This isn’t the only leak that’s pestered the unveiling of Rage 2, as Walmart Canada originally revealed a listing for the game in early May 2018, causing the official Rage Twitter account to poke a bit of fun at the retailer, while also crucially never denying that the listing was real and not a fake.

  • Release Date

The first time we saw proper gameplay footage for Rage 2 was at Bethesda’s E3 2018 presentation on June 10. The demo for Rage 2 kicked off with Andrew WK of all people taking the stage. After the awkward camera cuts to the perplexed audience, Avalanche developers came out to talk the game up.

Protagonist Walker kicked off the gameplay footage, talking about how his parents were killed, and that he’s the last ranger of the wasteland. We then got some pre-alpha footage of Rage 2, where Walker is out to find a rare artefact.

RAGE 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. More on RAGE 2 will be revealed at E3 2018 in June. RAGE 2 is not coming to Nintendo Switch.


Skyrim: Very Special Edition

I can’t believe they pulled this off. I actually enjoyed an E3 inside joke. Please give me my Alexa Skyrim Edition.

It turns out, though, Skyrim: Very Special Edition is a very real thing. In case you missed it, Bethesda ran a skit starring Keegan Michael-Key as a gamer who plays a version of Skyrim using only his.

Key was shown giving Amazon Alexa commands in the game, sort of like a text adventure or a tabletop RPG. It was pretty funny, partly because everyone loves to joke about Bethesda continuing to find new platforms to bring Skyrim to and new ways to re-release the seven-year-old game.

It’s all fun and games until you realise you can actually play Skyrim: Very Special Edition. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill.

The Skyrim Very Special Edition is actually very real and you can download it right now.

According to the Amazon.com listing, the Skyrim Very Special Edition allows you to “take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your voice…your Thu’um!”

The description also includes a list of bullet points that indicate what you, as a Dragonborn, can expect to do on Alexa, including; Guard your knees against arrows, walk straight up a mountain instead of going around, fail to collect all stones of Barenziah for like the 5th time, and…wait for it…open wooden doors.

While Alexa fans will no doubt be thrilled to finally be able to play Skyrim on their devices, it appears that the Etch-a-Sketch, Pager, and Samsung Smart Refrigerator versions are, unfortunately, not real. Though, with Skyrim, the dream is always alive.


DOOM Eternal

Doom was a game that looked terrible right up until it was on sale and actually really, really good. A sequel was a no-brainer and we got it. Bethesda showed very little of this game, but it definitely exists. Plan is to show more at QuakeCon in August.

Doom Eternal takes place at least partially on Earth, as teased in the above trailer and confirmed by the developers themselves at Bethesda’s E3 2018 press conference. It’s appropriate, since the original Doom took place on the Martian moon of Phobos before heading to humanity’s home in Doom 2: Hell on Earth.

How long will you have to wait to rip and tear your way through a new host of demons? Um, we don’t know yet. Sorry! Bethesda didn’t reveal a release date or window along with Doom Eternal, though it did say we can look forward to the gameplay reveal at QuakeCon on August 10. Hopefully, we’ll get a release date then too.


Wolfenstein: Youngblood

A new Wolfenstein title was announced which focuses on B.J. Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, and is set in 80s Paris. There’s also a Wolfenstein VR game coming out called Cyberpilot.

Not enough for you? Wolfenstein 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch in a few weeks “in our message to bring the message f*** Nazis to every platform possible.”

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a brand-new co-op game unveiled at the Bethesda BE3 Showcase 2018. The game takes place in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. Play as one of BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.

This is an amazing concept for a game, and the quality of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, the previous game in the series, gives us even more reason to be optimistic. We look forward to sharing more news about Wolfenstein: Youngblood before its release in 2019.


Quake Champions

Quake Champions will be a free-to-play game. The new trailer for Quake Champions but not much other news on that front. Apart from the fact ‘Quake Dad’ will haunt that poor man forever.

There are a number of Quake players that just want to play their Quake, right? And they are familiar with the business model of our previous games, and they are totally fine.

What that means is that players who purchase the game will gain access to all of Quake Champions‘ characters while those free-to-play players will be able to use in-game currency to gain access to new Champions for a limited period of time. It’s not clear how long you will be able to access purchased Champions via the latter method, but Willits did say that he doesn’t want to use the word “rent” in regards to the nature of the transaction.

Players on both sides will have the chance to use in-game currency on other unlockables such as rune challenges and skins. Additionally, free-to-play and paid players will compete in the same brackets on the same maps using the same weapons. At this time, it appears the only potentially meaningful gameplay concept that requires currency are the characters themselves.

Quake Champions doesn’t have a release date as of yet. Strogg, the main bad guy from Quake II and IV, is making his way to Quake Champions in an upcoming April update.


PREY: Mooncrash

Arkane Studios teasing Prey content for a while now. There was no surprise to have a new Prey DlC Mooncrash announcement. It’s available now. In addition, a new free update is being rolling out tonight which adds new game plus, survival mode, and story mode options.

If that’s not enough, later this summer a new multiplayer mode called Typhon Hunter will also be available. It’s a lethal game of hide and seek where one player is a goes against five mimics who can disguise themselves as anything.
