Bethesda is now officially working on an Indiana Jones video game.

Bethesda announced earlier today, January 12 that they are working on the next generation of Indiana Jones video games in tandem with Machine Games and newly-founded Lucasfilm Games, via a Twitter post.

The project will be executive produced by industry legend Todd Howard, who has previously produced iconic games such as Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Howard has been at Bethesda for over 25 years, so it’s safe to say the project is in experienced hands.

Possible Release Date

The release date is currently unclear. Bethesda has clarified that it will be some time before more information is made public, but they are excited to share that it’s in development.

Release Platforms

We expect this game to be an Xbox and PC exclusive, as Microsoft previously purchased Bethesda’s partner company, Zenimax Media for 7.5 Billion USD.

Newly founded Lucasfilm Games to assist

This title will also be the first release from the new Lucasfilm Games studio, which will also assist in development. It’s unclear if that studio will also head future Star Wars titles since EA currently holds a license agreement to make games under the Star Wars IP.

As time continues we’ll be sure to learn more about the future of the new Indiana Jones game and Lucasfilm Games.

Apex Legends fans noticed some neat anime references within the new teaser dropped by Respawn, with images for My Hero Academia and Death Note, along with a few others.

Respawn Entertainment like to create hype among the Apex Legends community by sporadically releasing teasers that show off upcoming content. Now, a new one has caught the attention of fans because of its various easter eggs.

While Apex fans were initially just focusing on was the statue of a Valkyrie that has been connected to the upcoming Legend named Valk, a few eagle-eyed viewers were able to notice some hidden anime references as well.

Apex Legends roster

The new Apex Legends teaser image showcased a room on a spaceship which bares close resemblance to Wattson’s room, as revealed in a previous teaser. Looking closer at the stacked shelves on the right reveals various hints.

The shelf has Portion a Nessie toy, along with the Land of the Lustrous and My Hero Academia manga. If you look at the bottom of the shelf, you can also spot a stack of Death Note chapters next to the Valkyrie statue.

These are surprising additions that the developers deliberately left in the image, and now Apex fans are speculating how this will affect the future of the battle royale.

When Apex Legends released on the Nintendo Switch, Respawn Game Director, Chad Grenier stated the Season 9 character would appeal to Japanese players. These references could be a clue about the Legend’s interest in manga.

Respawn also released weapon charms and a limited-edition Pathfinder skin for Nintendo players, which lines up with Grenier’s promise to “deliver unique content to Japan” in Apex Legends. We might see more anime-themed content added later.

The image also contains a reference to thea Apex Predators from Titanfall on a piece of paper lying on the desk. With Season 9 on the horizon, we expect plenty more surprises to come in the next few months.

Apex Legends War Games: Everything there is to know about Ultra Zones

Apex Legends War Games event is well underway with the latest mode, Ultra Zones, taking inspiration from Season 6’s Flash Point LTM.

Apex Legends Ultrazones

Mad Maggie’s Apex Legends takeover continues with War Games Ultra Zones mode, a renewed version of the Season 6 LTM.

Ultra Zones is the newest mode in Apex Legends War Games mini-event and may be familiar to some players.

Since replacing Second Chance, Armour Regen saw a short-lived lifespan being replaced by Ultra Zones at 10am PST, April 14th. The new mode is a rework of the Season 6 LTM, Flashpoint, which received backlash after it came with a host of bugs and performance issues.

Apex Legends Ultrazones

How does Ultra Zones work?

The Ultra Zones War Games mode sees multiple hot zones over the map covered in a glowing blue dome. This means not only more gold and higher tier loot, but also the glowing Flash Points which replenish health and shields.

Instead of the hot zones only featuring one gold item, Maggie has decided to put one gold gun and one gold item in each Ultra Zone, meaning even more gold loot!

After a short period of time in an Ultra Zone, players will passively heal shield and health, making for a fun combat zone where players can sustain fights. Unlike the Season 6 LTM, Flashpoint, all healable items are available during this mode.

Similar to the Armor Regen mode, characters with lots of mobility like Octane and Horizon will make be great at dipping in and out of fights to let your health and shield regenerate.

This mode will be the longest-lasting out of all the modes included in the War Games mini-event, staying until 10 am PST on April 19th.

The Xenophage is an extremely impressive Exotic Weapon that you can collect by completing a quest in Destiny 2.

Xenophage in Destiny 2

Wondering how to get the powerful Xenophage rifle in Destiny 2? Here’s how.

Destiny 2 has a ton of cool weapons to choose from before jumping into battle. The Xenophage Exotic machine gun is a great choice because of its accuracy, along with its explosive rounds that will annihilate your enemies.

If you want to get your hands on this powerful weapon, then you’ll need to complete an Exotic quest that requires you to solve puzzles and complete certain tasks. Here’s how you can get the Xenophage Exotic in Season of the Chosen.

Destiny 2

How to start the Xenophage Exotic quest 

If you want to start this Destiny 2 Exotic quest, then you’ll need to visit the Red Keep room where you saw Eris when completing her Memory quests. From there, you’ll have to make your way towards a puzzle that you need to solve.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Land at Sorrow’s Harbor, and move north into the Red Keep
  • Head left from the green crystal, and continue until you approach a small path on the right wall leading upward
  • When you enter the main room, light the statues in the correct order (front right, back left, back right, front left) 
  • Loot the chest in the middle of the area to claim The Journey

Light all six lanterns at The Anchor of Light

You’ll then have to go east of the main southern landing zone at the Anchor of Light portion of the Moon. Once you’re there, collect the orb of flame from the Fallen-infested building.

This orb must be used to light lanterns at six different spots within one minute. Luckily, your timer will reset every time you light one in the correct order, which is the following:

  1. Right next to where you collected the Orb of Flame.
  2. On top of the building at the edge of the crevasse to the East
  3. Inside the small yellow structure interior near the Fallen-infested building
  4. At the top of the Fallen-infested building
  5. On a small rooftop by the buried section to the north
  6. On top of the large round structure over the green pit in the middle of the map

After all six lanterns have been lit in the correct order, you must insert the orb in the small Hive spire near the site where you grabbed the orb.

Where to find all four path fragments 

Now, you’ll have to complete all four Lost Sectors on the Moon, and successfully get through Hive rune puzzles at the end of each one. You can find these puzzles in the exit paths for the Lost Sectors.

These consist of nine grids of runes, and shooting one will change all of the symbols in the rune’s row and column. You’ll need to match every rune in the grid with the symbol above the grid. We’ve listed the correct order below:

  • K1 Communion: 7, 9, 2, 2
  • K1 Revelation: 6, 4, 5, 5, 4, 8, 5, 2
  • K1 Logistics: 1, 7, 6, 5
  • K1 Crew Quarters: 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 9, 8, 8

Once you’ve line up all the runes, chests will spawn that you can loot to collect all four path fragments.

The Pit of Heresy

This next step will require you to complete various activities within the Pit of Heresy dungeon, including activating a hidden rune, lighting fires, and winning a boss fight. You’ll already have reached 970 PL beforehand, so you can get these done quickly.

Here’s how you can complete the Pit of Heresy:

  1. Clear all the minibosses at the start of the dungeon
  2. Make your way to the chamber filled with doorways and platform to the door without a symbol at the entrance
  3. Activate the hidden rune inside
  4. Visit the area packed with Hive Ogres before the Hive Totem encounter
  5. Head left from the fork, then drop down to the rocky ledge below.
  6. Find the small plate marked with runes and activate it to collect the Orb of Flame.
  7. Return to the fork, and then take the right path this time.
  8. Find the sealed door with two braziers on either side, and use the Orb of Flame to light both

This will then open up a door that leads to a boss fight. This enemy is PL 970, so be ready for a dangerous battle. You won’t be able to hurt the boss initially, and you’ll need to do some tasks before that opportunity comes.

You’ll receive a random buff, and you must check it to see where you need to place the Orb of Light. Once you’ve put it in the correct spot in the arena, you’ll gain a Vengeance buff that allows you to hurt the enemy for 25 seconds.

Here’s where to place the orbs:

  • Abyssal Dread: Upper Arena – Far left
  • Thunderous Dread: Lower Arena – Front left
  • Fiery Dread: Lower Arena – Far right
  • Neutral Dread: Upper Arena – Front right

Just keep checking your buff, then collect the Orb of Flame and place it in the matching locations. You’ll then have the opportunity to shoot the boss with the matching elemental damage type. Just keep repeating it until you defeat the boss.

Once the enemy has been defeated, you can finally collect the Xenophage Machine Gun for yourself! Now you can go cause some serious pain to your opponents the next time you jump into a match of Destiny 2.
