All the news, all in one place.
Summer’s rolling in, and the news keeps coming with it. We’ve got a great roundup for you this week – the Rage 2 roadmap, a new expansion for Monster Hunter World, and John Wick coming to Fortnite. So sit down with your Saturday breakfast, and catch up on anything you might have missed.
Yes, you did read that correctly – John Wick is coming to Fortnite.
But you’ll only get to play as him for a short amount of time – he’s there in a limited time mode for Fortnite X, as detailed in his new trailer. The event also has Wick’s Bounty LTM (Limited Time Mode), and John Wick Challenges that are available for free and allow players to earn rewards. These will include the Gold Coin Back Bling, One Shot Glider, and the Boogeyman Wrap (or you can just buy them from the in game shop instead, but that’s cheating). If you do opt for buying them, however, you’ll get the John Wick Outfit and the Simple Sledge Pickaxe, so choose wisely!
Skull and Bones is delayed again and won’t be at E3 2019.
Unfortunately, Ubisoft has decided that they need a little more time on Skull & Bones, so the new title will be missing in action from E3 this year. Their reason for the delay is that they were focusing on “quality first,” so a little more polish is needed. Thankfully, the producer, Karl Luhe has confirmed that there’s no risk of the project being dropped, but it looks like we won’t be seeing the game until mid-2020 at the earliest.
Take a look at the roadmap for Rage 2:
Fresh from the official Twitter account, the roadmap has been revealed; detailing both paid and free post launch content, May delivers weapon skins, Wasteland Challenges, and the first World Event, Bring the Ruckus. June will have a 30 Day Update, completely free of charge, and August will have the first of the two expansions, the second to come at an unspecified point in 2019.
Get chilly this September with Iceborne.
With the new trailer dropping last week, Iceborne is the new incoming expansion for Monster Hunter World, which will bring a new storyline,
monsters, gameplay options, and a higher difficulty setting, along with a new location – Hoarfrost Reach. The expansion itself will be available September 6, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One, and a PC version will follow at a later date. There’s a handful of purchase options – you can snag a digital copy (regular or digital deluxe), or the Master Edition, which will come with the base edition and the expansion.
There’s a release date for the Royal Edition of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
The fourth expansion for Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be hitting our screens on May 28, 2019, and the title is “A Woman’s Lot.” You’ll be playing as Theresa, and her dog, Tinker, seeing Sigismund’s raid from a different perspective. In a helpful move, this edition will also include all previously released DLC in one package.
And finally – what’s been happening around GGS this week:
- Jay took a gander at the cute and colourful Puyo Puyo Champions.
- John got up close and personal with the plague and a scourge of rats in his review of A Plague Tale: Innocence.
- Speaking of rats, he’s also compiled a list about six video game rats that really are the worst.
- Sarah’s also made a list of where all the Curiosity locations are in A Plague Tale: Innocence.
- Sarah put together What-We’re-Playing-Wednesday, with an interesting mix of games this week.
- And finally, John’s written up the Indie News Roundup.
