Rainbow Six Siege continues to expand, and it will soon do so once more with Operation Grim Sky. The new DLC drop adds two new Operators, Maverick and Clash, and reworks an old map. Now, Ubisoft has finally revealed all the details on the Operators.Clash, as we suspected from previous teasers, carries a shield similar to the one used by Montagne. The shield is always fully extended when equipped and, although she cannot hold a gun while using her shield, it does have an added electricity shot capability that slows enemies while dealing a small amount of damage. Her ability makes her the first defender to carry a shield and a useful support Operator, allowing her to gather intel on enemy positions and distracting them while teammates pick them off.The new attacker is named Maverick, and his unique tool is a blowtorch that can burn through reinforced walls silently. Ostensibly an alternative to Hibana and Thermite, he can open up objective rooms to allow greater lines of sight--and kill opportunities. However, it takes a while to burn larger holes, making it difficult to stay alive long enough to burn a sufficiently large hole to crawl through. When combined with smoke grenades and Glaz's thermal scope, however, Maverick's blowtorch can be lethal.You can watch gameplay of both Operators in the video above. There's also footage of the buffed Consulate map--which has had some small tweaks applied such as new wall placements--and the completely reworked Hereford Base, which is almost unrecognizable from its previous form. Ubisoft has not yet confirmed an exact release date for the new season of content; it merely states Operation Grim Sky will come to the test server on August 20 and to live servers on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in September.Info from Gamespot.com

WWE's Summerslam, returns to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for a fourth year in a row. For those who can't attend, you can watch the biggest WWE event of the summer from the comfort of your own home on the WWE Network. This gigantic show will have every major WWE championship on the line. It's one stacked card for the evening, and it's going to be long.Summerslam's main card will start at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT. In the past couple of years, the bigger WWE events, like Summerslam and Wrestlemania, have had longer Kickoff Shows, which are two hours long, so expect this Kickoff to start at 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT. As of this writing, WWE's scheduling for August 19 is not available, so we don't know for sure.If you're interested in watching the event, but don't have the WWE Network, you can sign up for one month for free and cancel at any time without any contractual obligations. That means you can watch Summerslam for free and cancel right afterwards. However, if you like the service, it'll cost you $10 a month to continue using it. The WWE Network is available on gaming consoles, iOS, Android, Roku, Smart TVs, and more.As of this writing, there are 13 matches on the card, two of which are on the Kickoff Show. There shouldn't be any more added at this point.Aside from Reigns taking on Lesnar for the Universal Championship for the umpteenth time, there are some continuations of solid storylines as well as new rivalries that have some legs. Jeff Hardy will get his rematch against Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Championship, and hopefully, Hardy learns to wear a cup to protect himself from low blows. Additionally, Ronda Rousey will get a chance to win the Raw Women's Championship from Alexa Bliss. Hopefully, if Rousey ends up winning, she will be a fighting champion and not absent like a certain champion on the men's roster has been for the past couple of years. The card is already pretty filled out, and we're still a couple weeks away from the show.Summerslam match card:Rusev & Lana vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega [KICKOFF MATCH]The B-Team vs. The Revival [KICKOFF MATCH] (For the Raw Tag Team Championship)Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Drew Gulak (For the Cruiserweight Championship) [KICKOFF MATCH]Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Jeff Hardy (For the United States Championship)Carmella (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch (For the Smackdown Women's Championship)Daniel Bryan vs. The MizDolph Ziggler (c) vs. Seth Rollins (For the Intercontinental Championship)Braun Strowman vs. Kevin OwensThe Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. The New Day (For the Smackdown Tag Team Championship)Finn Balor vs. Baron CorbinAlexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey (For the Raw Women's Championship)AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe (For the WWE Championship)Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns (For the Universal Championship)Make sure to come back to GameSpot on Sunday, August 19 for live coverage of the event. Don't expect the demon from Hell, Kane, to be involved in this PPV in anyway though. He's currently transitioning into his new role as mayor.Info from Gamespot.com

One of gaming's most veteran, high-profile, and outspoken developers--Cliff Bleszinski--is writing a book. He posted a teaser of a section about the challenges and realities of working in games, something he has a lot of experience with from his time at Epic Games and later at his own studio, Boss Key. The section Bleszinski shared was specifically about the fall of Boss Key, which shut its doors just a few years after opening.Other parts of his book will cover things like the death of his father and nephew, how his first marriage fell apart, and when he met his second wife. The section about the crumbling of Boss Key was harder to write than any of those passages, he says. In this passage, Bleszinski speaks frankly and honestly about his time at Epic. He praises Epic CEO Tim Sweeney for being a great boss and friend, and talks about how the games industry is a tight-knit community that looks out for each other ("We're like the Nerd Mafia," he says).He also reflects on the big shakeup at Epic with foreign investment. When Chinese internet giant Tencent invested in Epic, Bleszinski made a lot of money from selling his shares, which was in addition to the generous-sounding pay package he received at Epic before leaving the company. The passage cuts off at what sounds like the most interesting part, so I guess we'll all have to wait for the book to come out to learn more.I haven't done any interviews since Boss Key imploded because I needed to tell it in my own words, in my book.Did that today. Felt good, like that chapter in my life was finally closed. ❤️😉 pic.twitter.com/T9MYzra7Sy — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) August 17, 2018Bleszinski worked on the Gears of War franchise while at Epic, while he was also involved in the development of Epic's massive hit Fortnite. In fact, Bleszinski was the person to officially announce Fortnite for the first time back in 2011 at the Video Game Awards.He left Epic in 2012 and founded Boss Key in 2014, which was the same year that Microsoft bought the Gears of War franchise from Epic. Boss Key shipped the arena shooter LawBreakers in August 2017, but it was not the hit that Boss Key and publisher Nexon wanted. Boss Key launched a battle royale game called Radical Heights in April, but it also failed to find an audience. Boss Key then closed its doors for good in May.Bleszinski's life story certainly sounds like it would make for some good reading. It's unclear at this stage of Bleszinski will self-publish the book or partner with a publisher. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest. You can read the passage below, while some of his other previously published excerpts can be seen further down the page.Boss Key"Let's frame some context here, first and foremost.This is going to be a hard chapter to write, honestly, harder than my father passing, harder than my nephew dying, harder than reminiscing about meeting Lauren, harder than talking about the fall of my first marriage.For those of you who don't recall, I worked my butt of for Epic Games (Gears of War, Fortnite) for many years, and Tim Sweeney, the CEO/primary owner, took good care of me. He paid me well, I had a chunk of the company, and hell, he's a really nice dude (brilliant, too) who I enjoyed going on long walks with and discussing the future of the company with. Heck, he and Mark Rein were at my wedding, remember. (Both, hah!)Tencent is an ENORMOUS Chinese tech company, and, years ago, they bought out a really large chunk of Epic, including my shares, and I had a windfall of money, on top of what Tim had so generously given me in the Epic Bonus Plan. (Awwww, my first Lamborghini, in burgundy, who does that?)Game development can be a VERY stressful business, I mean, we're not curing cancer or running Space X here, but for those who work in this biz it MATTERS TO US. We grew up with Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, all of it, and want to make our own mark on this (very small) business that, to be honest, feels like family. I huge 85% of my industry peers every time I see them, be it in downtown Raleigh (shout out to Squanch Games!) or at the Game Developers Conference. We've all seen each other at our best (shipping great products) and our worst (divorces, affairs, watching out for reach other if sloppy drunk) and if you fuck with one of us you fuck with all of us. We're like the Nerd Mafia, and we stick together.So, with this windfall (after listening to Big Sean's "Live This Life" on repeat while pounding..."A peek, for those of you who care. pic.twitter.com/WKOWwY5DqA — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) August 12, 2018Every day I sit down and just...write...a bit more.Even if this stuff doesn't ever see the light of day it's therapy for me."Wah wah, successful guy" yeah I get it.But this one's for me. pic.twitter.com/xZv7FuvmI9 — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) August 9, 2018God I'm loving writing my memoir. pic.twitter.com/XlrIpRBzLF — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) August 9, 2018Step three. pic.twitter.com/mq2mJdeqIB — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) August 7, 2018 Info from Gamespot.com

Full results for WWE Summerslam's Kickoff are posted below, as well as half the main card. There were three matches during the two hour pre-show event, including two title matches. The highlight of the Kickoff Show was the Cruiserweight Championship were Cedric Alexander defended his title against Drew Gulak, as it was a solid balance of high-flying wrestling and brutal mat technicianship.It's time for WWE's biggest PPV of the summer, Summerslam. For the fourth year in a row, the event takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and the entire weekend is filled with a plethora of events for sports entertainment fans.You can watch the show on the WWE Network, but if you don't have a subscription to it, or you're too busy to watch it live, GameSpot will be keeping you up to date with the winners and losers of the show as it happens, and the Kickoff Show begins at 10 PM GMT / 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT with the main card starting at 12 AM GMT (August 20) / 7 PM ET (August 19) / 4 PM PT. Keep refreshing the page for up to the second results and surprising moments from the PPV.There are a few high profile matches to keep your eye on for the evening. For Raw's matches, the Intercontinental Championship match between Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler should be one of the best matches of the evening. The two competitors have had some fantastic fights against each other, including the ironman match last month at Extreme Rules. There are a few rumors circling that Rollins' buddy, Dean Ambrose, will turn heel at the end of the bout though.The Smackdown side of the card has a couple matches that should be fantastic. First, there is Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz, which has been building for the past couple years. This is the first time the two men have battled each other since Bryan was cleared to wrestle again back in the spring, and he recently spoke to GameSpot about this history with The Miz.

Far Cry 5's next expansion, Dead Living Zombies, will launch on August 28, Ubisoft has announced. The expansion sees players meet up with "D-tier" film director Guy Marvel who has a number of ideas for an "epic zombie saga." You will play seven different "film scenarios," which are maps made using Far Cry 5's Arcade Editor tools. As you'd imagine, you will be fighting against "hordes of undead" in all manner of different environments. Once you beat each map, you'll unlock a Score Attack mode. If you get a 3-star rating you'll get weapons and gear that you can use in the story mode. The Dead Living Zombies expansion costs $7 on its own, while it's also included with Far Cry 5's $30 DLC Pass. You don't have to pay to get new stuff, however, as Ubisoft is adding more scripting tools and destructible objects, as well as "more new assets," to the free Far Cry 5 map-editor in the next title update.Dead Living Zombies is the third and final Far Cry 5 expansion, following the previously released Hours of Darkness and Lost on Mars. You can watch a trailer for Dead Living Zombies in the embed above; there is only a very brief gameplay segment, right at the end.Info from Gamespot.com

Part of what makes Fortnite great is that it gets new skins, gear, and emotes all the time. One of the newly released pieces of equipment is a cow bell emote, only it's not called that.In keeping with Fortnite's fascination with Llamas, developer Epic Games has released a "Llama Bell" emote in Fortnite. "Distract your opponents with more Llama Bell," Epic wrote about it. You can purchase the Llama Bell emote right now from Fortnite's in-game store.Distract your opponents with more Llama Bell.New Emote available now! pic.twitter.com/m7cKNVmjNp — Fortnite (@FortniteGame) August 20, 2018As you can see, this Llama Bell emote is very clearly a re-creation of Will Ferrell's dance from the famous 2000 Saturday Night Live "More Cowbell" sketch.In other Fortnite news, the game's latest update, 5.21, was released last week. It added a new mode called Soaring 50s and brought back the Sniper Shootout mode. Additionally, Epic added a new, mega-powerful weapon in the form of the Heavy Sniper.

It's the end of the road for Microsoft's racing game Forza Horizon 2. Microsoft has announced that the 2014 racing game will be removed from the Xbox Store on September 30. As part of the game reaching "end of life" status, all of its DLC will also be yanked. If you already own the game, you can still play it, while you'll also be able to re-download it should you need to delete it to clear up space. It's not immediately clear if Forza Horizon 2's online services will remain available after the game is removed from sale. Microsoft's official statement didn't say anything about this (via Polygon). Microsoft did not say why it is removing Forza Horizon 2 from the Xbox Store, but there is a pattern for "sunsetting" the Horizon games. Microsoft de-listed Forza Horizon 1 back in 2016, which was four years after it was initially released in 2012. Whatever the case, you should absolutely go download Forza Horizon 2 now, as it's free for Xbox Live Gold members currently.Forza Horizon 3 remains available to buy from the Xbox Store. The next entry, Forza Horizon 4, launches in early October for Xbox One and PC. It's developed by Playground Games, a UK studio that made the earlier titles; it was recently acquired by Microsoft.

Season 5, Week 5 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is here, and with it comes a few new challenges to complete. One of those will require you to run around the game world in search of Rift Portals to use, which is much easier said than done. Rifts played a key part in the lead up to Season 5, transforming large areas of Fortnite's island. Interacting with them teleports you high into the air above the island, allowing you to plummet down to the ground or use the elevation to glide around. [Update: A bug that caused Epic to remove Rifts from the game temporarily has been resolved, so you should be able to once again undertake the challenge explained below.]The difficult part of this challenge is actually finding these portals, as they appear randomly. Generally, you'll have to run around and just keep your eyes open, so we recommend just getting on with the other challenges and staying alert. However, there is one extra tell to look out for: when a rift opens, you'll hear a booming sound that serves as an audio cue to alert players nearby that one has opened, so keep your headphones on and turned up.If you've never seen a rift before, they look like blue tears in the fabric of reality. They're tricky to see during the daytime, since they can blend into the brilliant blue sky, so it's worth constantly scanning the sky above you.Although there's no specific location to find the rifts, anecdotally we've found we run into them most in the new areas that were added to the game at the start of Season 5. As a result, we recommend taking regular trips to the desert biome at the bottom of the map and hanging around Snobby Shores too. We've also had some luck finding them in the vicinity of Tomato Town and Risky Reels, so give those a shot if you're struggling.If you're still trying to complete the other challenges for Fortnite Season 5, Week 5, we've put together a guide on how to follow the Snobby Shores Treasure Map, which is the other more time-consuming quest. Those still catching up on previous weeks' challenges can also take a look below, where you'll find a guide for the entire season thus far, along with some recent news surrounding Fortnite. Alternatively, you can head over to our dedicated Fortnite Season 5 challenge guide.Fortnite Season 5 CoverageFortnite Season 5 Is LiveFortnite Season 5 Update Adds Nintendo Switch Motion ControlsFortnite Season 5 Patch Notes Include New Vehicle, Map Areas, RiftsFortnite Season 5: All The Skins, Back Bling, Contrails, GlidersFortnite Season 5 Battle Pass: Every RewardFortnite Season 5 Battle Pass: Skins, Price, Free V-Bucks, And How It WorksFortnite Season 5 Update Adds Nintendo Switch Motion ControlsFortnite Season 5 Battle Pass's Big Chase: The Level 100 Ragnarok SkinFortnite Season 5 Adds Autofire On Mobile; Here Are The iOS Patch NotesFortnite Challenge Guide: Where To Search Floating Lightning BoltsFortnite Challenge Guide: Where To Find Risky Reels Treasure MapFortnite Offering $8 Million In Big Esports EventFortnite Playground Mode Is Live; Here's What New And DifferentAll Fortnite Birthday Cake Locations: Guide To Where To Dance For The ChallengeNew Fortnite Update Adds A Hilarious Tribute To The MapFortnite Skins For Founder's Pack: Here's The Two Exclusive New OutfitsFortnite Challenge Guide: Follow Treasure Map In Flush Factory, Shoot Clay PigeonsFortnite Challenge Guide: All Clay Pigeons Locations (Season 5, Week 3)New Fortnite Jetpack Mode, Fly Explosives, Available For A Limited TimeHow To Get Free Fortnite Battle Pass Tier -- Week 1 Road Trip ChallengeFortnite Week 4 Challenge Guide: Search Between Gas Station, Soccer Pitch, Stunt MountainFortnite Week 4 Challenge Guide: Flaming Hoops LocationsWith Fortnite's Android Release, Epic Will Bypass Google PlayFortnite 5.20 Patch Notes: New Double Barrel Shotgun, Steady Storm LTM, Aim Bug Fix, And MoreFortnite Is Good For Gaming, EA SaysInfo from Gamespot.com

Another bug has been discovered in Fortnite, this time relating to the game's Rifts. As a result, developer Epic has had to temporarily disable the portals across every platform--PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile--until it can resolve the issue. [Update: Epic has restored Rifts, so the accompanying challenge should once again be doable.]What makes this new bug particularly problematic is that it prevents players from completing one of the game's recent challenges. One of Week 5's objectives tasked players with using three Rift Portals, but now that they've been disabled in all game modes, those who have yet to complete the challenge will not be able to do so until they're reenabled.Epic hasn't provided an estimate for how long it will take for the Rifts to return, although the developer typically addresses issues of this nature fairly quickly. The studio says it will provide a further update on the status of the Rifts via the Fortnite Twitter account once the bug has been fixed.In recent weeks, a number of bugs have cropped up in Fortnite that directly impacted players' ability to complete certain challenges. An issue with grenades last week made it particularly difficult to finish the "deal damage with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade" challenge, as damage inflicted by these weapon wasn't always counted toward progress. That bug has since been resolved with the recent 5.21 update.Earlier in the season, shopping carts and ATKs had to be temporarily disabled due to a different issue. Because of that, many players weren't able to complete Week 4's "jump through flaming hoops" challenge, as the task required players to leap through the hoops using either of the two vehicles.Fortunately, even if you haven't completed the Rift Portals challenge, you still have until the end of Season 5 to do so, giving you quite a bit of time to earn Battle Stars and level your Battle Pass up. Epic recently rolled out a new set of weekly challenges, which include searching where stone heads are looking and new timed trials. You can find more guides in our complete Season 5 challenge roundup.Info from Gamespot.com

[Update] Steam.tv has been taken offline and, in a statement to CNET, a Valve representative said it was meant to be an internal test and was made publicly accessible by accident. "We are working on updating Steam Broadcasting for the Main Event of The International, Dota 2's annual tournament," the company explained. "What people saw was a test feed that was inadvertently made public," said the company."[Original story] Valve, which runs digital game distribution platform Steam, has launched Steam.tv, a video streaming portal that could be direct competition to Twitch and YouTube. Steam.tv is currently showing Dota 2's The International, with no option to watch any other games or stream to the service yet. However, it's likely that both of these features will be introduced in the near future. Once logged in, Steam.tv displays the new Steam Chat introduced recently and allows users to invite friends to join and view the video feed together. Although the site is currently a bit unstable, CNET has managed to explore some of the other functionality available. It reports that Steam.tv has built-in voice chat on Google Chrome, but this doesn't seem to work on Firefox or Edge.At the time of writing, Valve hasn't publicly acknowledged the launch of Steam.tv, opting instead to quietly make it live. Given the size of Steam's user base and the fact that Steam is currently the leading digital game storefront, it makes sense that Valve would want to give Steam users a place to stream games or watch others do so. Although Twitch and YouTube are the go to services for game streaming, challengers have started to appear, most notably Microsoft's Mixer service and now Steam.tv.Steam is also facing competition when it comes to the sale of games, with Discord--already incredibly popular service for chatting while playing games--recently announcing it will start selling games, and even for some with an exclusivity period. Major publishers like Bethesda, meanwhile, are also starting to distance themselves from Valve's platform. Fallout 76 will be distributed through Bethesda's own service first, instead on Steam.The recent Steam Chat launch introduced new grouping features, a Favorites tag, and also revealed more details on what friends doing. Friends will now automatically be grouped by game and by party, which makes it easier play with them. The dedicated friends menu will display specific details about what exactly friends are doing in a game too. Additionally, group chats can be pulled together much easier now.

Battle royale games have established themselves as more than just a fad, and as the space becomes more crowded, games strive to carve out their niche. With the console port of H1Z1, focusing on simplicity and streamlined mechanics is how it stakes its claim. Significant changes were made to H1Z1's original formula on PC to get you moving and encourage more action, which is further supported by intuitive controls. Where H1Z1's lacking is in variety, due in large part to an uninspired map that's missing interesting setpieces for its most intense firefights. But if the thrill of besting 100+ other players is what you seek, H1Z1 delivers just that.As with many battle royales, your first objective is to quickly scavenge the dropzone for anything to improve your chances of survival. H1Z1 limits what's available on the ground and in abandoned structures to common loot, but you'll find enough to stay competitive in the opening minutes of a match. It's not too difficult to get equipped with a pump shotgun, basic assault rifle, a few healing items, low-level armor, and small backpack, which alleviates the frustration of coming away with nothing even after combing through buildings. However, the good stuff is tucked away in supply crates that litter the map as the match progresses. Boxes of high-level equipment dropped from the sky is a genre staple, however, H1Z1 focuses on this element by strictly keeping the best items exclusive to crates.By cranking up the frequency of supply drops and shining brightly colored beacons on them (that are visible in the distance), crates serve as hotbeds for action. The risk-reward nature instigates tense firefights, and encourages improvising a tactical approach; will you stake out the crate from a distance and use it as bait, or do you rush to loot it and get out of dodge before you're preyed upon? When powerful weapons like the RPG, scoped burst rifle, or automatic shotgun are likely within grasp, it's impossible to ignore these drops. Even if you're unfamiliar with the effectiveness of specific gear, traditional color-coding to indicate rarity--white, green, purple, gold--makes it easy to identify what's worth swooping up. It's not groundbreaking, but H1Z1 devises a way to sensibly deliver the better elements of battle royale.It also helps that H1Z1 doesn't hide much from you as it conveniently plots out nearby vehicles and supply crates on the map. While it takes some of the mystery out of this style of game, it's another tweak that gives you the tools get to the fun parts without delay. Especially because the deadly gas zones close in on the remaining players quickly, it's nice that the means for mobility are readily available. Considering that players parachute into the map at random locations (there's no choosing where to drop), making resources available and visible upfront mitigates the feeling of getting the short end of the stick.The systematic changes to the core of H1Z1 would be all for naught if there wasn't a practical control scheme to tie it all together. Thankfully, the changes to gameplay mechanics feel as if they were done with a gamepad in mind. Support items like grenades, bandages, and first-aid kits have dedicated buttons, and swapping out weapons or changing your armor is as easy as picking up a replacement. Small backpacks open a third weapon slot, while the rare ones grant a fourth slot in a simple weapon wheel, effectively negating cumbersome weight management that'd be tough to incorporate for gamepads. Most significantly, item crafting has been nixed altogether. As a result, combat flows smoothly, and you're a lot less likely to fumble around with the controls under high-pressure situations since there aren't any clunky menus to navigate.As with the PC version of H1Z1, though, there's a dissonance between its military-sim DNA and quirky rules of engagement. Movement and weapon behavior are still very much in line with what you'd see in a tactical shooter. But being able to instantly pop out of cars at full speed without taking damage itself seems incongruous, and using that as a tactic to close the distance for shotgun kills adds further dissonance. To top it off, vehicles don't inflict damage when ramming players. The wide-open design of the map makes these oddities stand out in a way that feels both thematically incoherent and disparate in a gameplay sense.H1Z1 also falls short in its single map that's largely made up of open fields and a scattering of deserted buildings. There's a striking lack of features or interesting backdrops to stage the frantic firefights and make encounters feel fresh from match to match. The more dense locations like Pleasant Valley, Ranchito, or Dragon Lake offer some of those tense moments when you don't know if enemies are weaving through buildings or peeking around corners. But overall, even marquee locations are visually uninspired and plainly laid out, which makes battles grow stale over time. Outside of outlandish cosmetics, the distinct lack of style or variety to how the game presents itself makes it hard to want to stay for long.As a free-to-play game, microtransactions come part-and-parcel. Crowns work as purchasable in-game currency, and Credits are solely earned through playing the game and completing daily challenges. Here, H1Z1 has evolved with the times by incorporating a Battle Pass which unlocks an exclusive line of rewards--like cosmetics, emotes, and in-game currency--to earn as you level up (though nothing that provides gameplay advantages). It may be irksome that a loot box system remains the prevailing method for rewards, but it's worth noting that each box spells out the rarity of the items you'll receive.H1Z1 doesn't shake up the battle royale formula in any big way, but instead offers a simple, streamlined experience. It differentiates itself from its PC counterpart to its benefit by revamping the core systems at play, giving you just enough to work with in battle without being overwhelmed. But it's still missing diversity in its action that would create lasting appeal. Bare presentation aside, the only map available isn't the best vehicle for solid gameplay as its largely made up of uninteresting locations. In a crowded space of battle royale games all vying for your attention, H1Z1 makes room for itself by just focusing the action-packed moments--nothing more, nothing less.Info from Gamespot.com

Another bug has been discovered in Fortnite, this time relating to the game's Rifts. As a result, developer Epic has had to temporarily disable the portals across every platform--PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile--until it can resolve the issue.What makes this new bug particularly problematic is that it prevents players from completing one of the game's recent challenges. One of Week 5's objectives tasked players with using three Rift Portals, but now that they've been disabled in all game modes, those who have yet to complete the challenge will not be able to do so until they're reenabled.Epic hasn't provided an estimate for how long it will take for the Rifts to return, although the developer typically addresses issues of this nature fairly quickly. The studio says it will provide a further update on the status of the Rifts via the Fortnite Twitter account once the bug has been fixed.In recent weeks, a number of bugs have cropped up in Fortnite that directly impacted players' ability to complete certain challenges. An issue with grenades last week made it particularly difficult to finish the "deal damage with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade" challenge, as damage inflicted by these weapon wasn't always counted toward progress. That bug has since been resolved with the recent 5.21 update.Earlier in the season, shopping carts and ATKs had to be temporarily disabled due to a different issue. Because of that, many players weren't able to complete Week 4's "jump through flaming hoops" challenge, as the task required players to leap through the hoops using either of the two vehicles.Fortunately, even if you haven't completed the Rift Portals challenge, you still have until the end of Season 5 to do so, giving you quite a bit of time to earn Battle Stars and level your Battle Pass up. Epic recently rolled out a new set of weekly challenges, which include searching where stone heads are looking and new timed trials. You can find more guides in our complete Season 5 challenge roundup.Info from Gamespot.com

There have been rumors that HBO was considering picking up a new version of the Watchmen series, adapted for TV, for some time. Now, the company has announced it has officially green lit the show, which is being written and produced by Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of Lost and films like Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus. There aren't many details on the series yet, but we know it will debut in 2019."Set in an alternate history where 'superheroes' are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own," HBO wrote in a blog post, confirming the story will start at the beginning of the comic series, while introducing some new elements at the same time. Earlier this year, Lindelof took to Instagram explaining why the series wouldn't be a sequel or a reboot."Those issues are sacred ground and will not be retread nor recreated nor reproduced nor rebooted," he said. "They will however be remixed. We are not making a 'sequel' either. This story will be set in the world its creators painstakingly built… but in the tradition of the work that inspired it, this new story must be original. It has to vibrate with the seismic unpredictability of its own tectonic plates," he continued."It must ask new questions and explore the world through a fresh lens. Most importantly, it must be contemporary. The Old Testament was specific to the Eighties of Reagan and Thatcher and Gorbachev. Ours needs to resonate with the frequency of Trump and May and Putin and the horse that he rides around on, shirtless. And speaking of Horsemen, The End of the World is off the table… which means the heroes and villains--as if the two are distinguishable--are playing for different stakes entirely."Watchmen first made it to the screen in 2009, when Zach Snyder adapted the graphic novel for film. HBO tried unsuccessfully to get a TV series based on the story off the ground in 2014. Lindelof has a history with HBO; his acclaimed drama The Leftovers was also shown on the network, recently ending with its third and final season.First published by DC in 1986, Watchmen is a much-loved and celebrated 12-part graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. It's credited with introducing a darker and more mature tone to the traditional superhero comic. In 2005, it was even featured on Time's list of the 100 greatest novels of the 20th century.Info from Gamespot.com
