It’s down to these last four in this week’s News Battle Royale
Another week, another handful of news stories. So, if you’ve had a busy week and you managed to miss some of the biggest stories of the week, don’t fret – because we’ve go them for you in one tidy article. So, get breakfast sorted, get back into bed, and catch up on the week with our news roundup.
Red Dead 2 Gets a New Trailer
Welp, after Red Dead Redemption 2 was delayed, moving from a spring release to an October release, we’ve had to live of scraps of a single trailer and a handful of screenshots as we waited, hungrily for more news of Rockstar’s prequel to the epic Western adventure. And it wasn’t until just this week that we got a fresh trailer to sink our teeth into.
Whilst we still don’t have any gameplay footage of the game, we were given some interesting tid-bits of information for what’s in store come October – mostly that John Marston will be making an appearance in Red Dead 2, and that Arthur Morgan is a fan of fire.
Fortnite Season 4 Crashes onto the Scene
From meteoric rise to well… a different kind of crash, Fortnite’s season four has kicked off and players have been exploring a new area with a couple of handy new items available.
Much of the outskirts of Fortnite’s map remain unchanged, with the Tilted Towers still standing, it’s the centre of the map that’s seen the most change. You’ll now find a crater hiding some new items, the most interesting being the Hop Rocks – giving players a low gravity power when drank.
Along with the new landscape and items, Fortnite’s latest season has undergone a few design changes, with a new lobby background, and a slight improvement for graphics.
FIFA 18 is Getting a World Cup Update
With the football season coming to a close, EA are turning their attention to the upcoming World Cup, with an update rolling out a new update that’ll give player’s a chance to join in all all the highs and lows of the tournament.
The update will include all the teams that have qualified for the finals in Russia, sporting all 12 stadiums that’ll be used in the tournament, and will allow players to customise their own tournaments.
Along with the free update, FIFA 18’s Ultimate Team will also be getting a host of new World Cup themes goodies, so be on the lookout.
And Finally… Are Capcom gearing up for a new IP for E3?
Reported on by Videogamer, Capcom may well be working on a new IP to show off at E3 this year. The story comes after an E3 listing for an “Action/Adventure” game for the Switch, PC, and Xbox appeared on the site.
Videogamer have thrown out a couple of ideas, suggesting that the game could be a new Dead Rising game, which would explain why the title isn’t also listed for the PS4. Though, as the article suggests, it does also leave room for speculation about Capcom possibly working on an entirely new title. Whatever the answer, we’re only a few weeks away from knowing. E3 will be here soon, and sleep will elude me once more… E3… hooray.
