Fault is using Paragon’s bones to revive Epic’s deceased MOBA

Remember Paragon? Epic's shooty MOBA might be long-gone, but its DNA (and models, and textures, and animations) live on in Fault. Released in early access this week, Strange Matter Studio's successor isn't just influenced by Paragon - it's an attempt to revive the ill-fated MOBA using that Paragon's very own (and very free) assets.

Sony are investing $250 million in Epic Games

As businesses do when they want to become better pals, Sony and Epic Games have announced their intentions to work closer together with a press release and a price tag. Sony have made a "strategic investment" to acquire a minority interest in Epic to the tune of $250/£197.5 million. Suppose this explains why we saw that Unreal Engine 5 tech demo running on a PlayStation…

Fortnite is screening anti-racism panel We The People all day

How did you expect Fortnite to celebrate the USA's Independence Day? Fireworks, Rockets. Llamas and musicians falling from the sky? Instead, Epic have more appropriate plans for 2020's 4th of July celebration. As Black Lives Matter protests continue into the Summer, the monolithic battle royale hopes to use its new party island to educate - broadcasting Øpus United's anti-racism presentation We The People throughout the…

Fortnite: Save The World leaves early access, but isn’t going free-to-play

You will be forgiven for thinking that Fortnite: Save The World had already left early access. This is what many see as a strange appendage to Fortnite Battle Royale, but is actually the original PvE game that arguably birthed an entire epoch - all, apparently, while remaining in early access. It's a brazen assault on the fabric of meaning, but it's also maybe not all…

Fortnite will show Inception free in its virtual cinema on Friday

When Epic announced plans to show a full Christoper Nolan film on Fortnite's in-game cinema screens, I guessed it was probably Inception or maybe Batman. Turns out, it's both - or even The Prestige instead. Interestingly/frustratingly, the film that'll be screened free on Friday varies by country due to rights issues and local laws. So the UK gets The Prestige, the USA gets Inception, France…

Police cars have gotten the boot from Fortnite

Epic Games have been pretty vocal about the big changes to Fortnite in the battle royale's new season. The entire map is full of water, if you hadn't seen. Another change came in without the same fanfare. Players have noticed that Epic have also removed all the police cars from the game, including Creative mode maps. Epic haven't made an official statement on the subject, but…

Fortnite’s new sharks have absolutely zero chill

Why should Fortnite's 100-player deathmatch be limited to humans, anyway? If we're going to prove who's the best of the best, let's invite the whole animal kingdom along for the ride. Fortnite's latest update sank the map, bringing deadly sharks into the fray - and it looks like the ocean predators are already more than capable of snagging themselves that victory royale.

Fortnite’s new season has flooded the world

A storm has swept through Fortnite, leaving the island looking a bit like the Universal Studios stunt show, Waterworld: A Live Sea War Spectacular. Chapter 2 Season 3 launched today and the battle royale's map has been remade once again, with large chunks of it now underwater. And yes, you really can get around by fast by snagging a shark with your fishing rod then…

Fortnite’s storm is a giant wall of water now thanks to The Agency’s doomsday machine

Fortnite's done it again with one of their live events. The battle royale kicked off Chapter 2 Season 3 by unveiling a thing they've called The Device. As some leakers predicted a few weeks back, most of the map is getting plunged underwater after a battle between Fortnite's blue storm and some giant doomsday device controlled by The Agency. Get yer flippers ready because the…

Fortnite’s next season might be headed underwater next week

You know how it goes, Fortnite is constantly changing up the map and events on its battle royale island and folks love to get a sneak peek at what's up next. This time around it's not a datamine that dug up the dirt. It seems that the PlayStation Store accidentally changed Fortnite's icon on its site to this, the battle bus floating over an endless…

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Sludge Life are free on the Epic Games Store

So long, Civilization. The latest freebie over on the Epic Games Store is Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, a rather handsome pairing of two Borderlands games to blast your way through without dropping a penny. But Epic's feeling generous this week - today also marks the surprise release of grimy graffiti sandbox Sludge Life, and this filthy bonus is going free for quite a bit longer…

Fortnite will screen a full Christopher Nolan film in-game for free

The in-world cinema of Fortnite will screen a yet-unconfirmed old Christopher Nolan film for free this summer, Epic have revealed after debuting a trailer for his new film, Tenet. It's going to be Inception they show, isn't it? Gotta be. Inception turns ten in July, it's like a big ol' video game itself, they could add fun in-game effects with folding worlds and slowed time...…

That's easy access to cross-platform systems for things like friends, matchmaking, lobbies, and accounts. It's not limited to Unreal Engine either. They've also changed the Unreal Engine license…

Unreal Engine 5 revealed with a Tomb Raider-y tech demo

Epic Games today announced the next major version of their game engine, Unreal Engine 5. Headline features include loads more detail and better dynamic lighting, and improved content streaming that could mean (paired with the right hardware) an end to games being interrupted by levels loading. UE5 won't launch until next year so we won't see games built on it for a fair while but…

Diplo headlined the first concert on Fortnite’s new Party Royale island

As was foretold, Fortnite's new Party Royale island is real. As an alternative to its main Battle Royale mode, Epic have introduced "a new experimental and evolving space" where friends can hang out and play minigames together or, apparently, attend a concert by DJ man Diplo performing his Major Lazer set last Friday. It was the latest in a series of live events that Epic…

Fornite might get a new map all about Party Royales instead of Victory Royales

As they're wont to do, like kids sneaking peeks in their holiday presents, some regular Fortnite dataminers have gone snooping through the game files in today's 12.5 update looking for clues to Fortnite's future.They've unwrapped what might be a big one: something that appears to be a new, smaller map for Fortnite all about partying and minigaming with friends rather than fighting for victory royales.…

Epic Games Store’s next few free games will require two-factor authentication

If you want to claim the next three weeks of freebies on the Epic Games Store, you'll first need to enable two-factor authentication on your account to strengthen its security. Two-factor authentication is easy to set up and use so it's not a bother, though it is curious that they're only requiring this until May 21st, not permanently. "We are making this change in an…
