GTA 6 revealed in GTA Online

Following on from the success of Fortnite and Warzone’s in-game live events, a new Grand Theft Auto 6 leak claims that the game will be revealed inside GTA online.

Although Grand Theft Auto V is almost eight years old, its online portion continues to be one of the most popular multiplayer games on the market. Although Rockstar haven’t officially announced the next installment in the franchise, GTA 6 rumors continue to swirl.

A ton of details for the upcoming next-gen upgrade for GTA V and Online has leaked and it claims that GTA Online will receive significant updates that tie into the GTA 6 marketing campaign.

Grand Theft Auto 6

Rockstar have revealed that the next-gen upgrade for GTA V and GTA Online will release on November 11. Although promising that it won’t be a “simple port,” the studio has kept its features under wraps. However, a recent leak has revealed details for the upcoming expanded and enhanced edition.

Most of the leaked details are to be expected, such as “improved vehicle physics,” and “traffic and pedestrian density increased,” but there were also some surprises.

Alongside the claim that the game will support VR, the most notable surprise is that GTA 6 could be revealed inside GTA Online. The leak claimed that GTA Online would be “receiving 4 large updates leading into the GTA 6 Marketing Campaign, which will take place over live events.”

Fortnite began the trend of hosting live events for players to take part in, and last year Black Ops Cold War was revealed inside of Warzone. With the success of these events, live events could become an industry standard for live-service games, so it’s not impossible for Rockstar to join in.

Warzone teased upcoming events in-game, such as placing a poster for the 1980s Olympics in Verdansk, and the sprawling Los Santos would be the perfect place to tease GTA 6.

This leak has been widely dismissed, with players stating that the leak sounds more like a wish list, saying it’s unlikely VR will come to GTA V, and the details are too vague to be credible.

But like all leaks, there’s no way of proving their validity until details are confirmed by official channels.

Fortnite Thanos Skin

Three years after his LTM debut in Fortnite, Epic Games have brought Thanos back to the battle royale in Chapter 2, Season 7, and here’s how you can get your hands on the Fortnite Thanos skin.

The arrival of the Fortnite Season 7 update has brought a plethora of content for you to enjoy, including a brand-new Battle Pass that contains various characters like Rick Sanchez and Superman.

Epic Games are looking to do another Marvel crossover by having Thanos return to the game for the first time since Season 4. The mad titan will be part of a new in-game event, and here’s how you can unlock him.

How to unlock Thanos in Fortnite Season 7

Fortnite Thanos Cup

Thanos will become available in the Fortnite Item Shop for the first time from June 26, 2021. The mad titan will come with his own Infinity Gauntlet Back Bling, complete with all six Infinity Stones. 

You can unlock the Fortnite Thanos skin and his cosmetics earlier by competing in the Thanos Cup on June 21. This will require you to complete a total of 10 matches in 3 hours to earn a point as part of a Duo.

The Fortnite Thanos skin and Back Bling will be the rewards for the top-performing teams in each region, and players that earn 8 total points will receive “Thanos Watches” spray. 

Infinity Gauntlet in Fortnite

If you wish to participate in this event, you’ll need to have an Epic Account at level 30 with 2FA enabled. Thanos was initially available as part of an LTM in Season 4, but now he is here to stay when players start to get the Fortnite Thanos skin.

The Fortnite Thanos skin is a cool-looking outfit, and you can cause some serious havoc around Fortnite Island using the Infinity Gauntlet. The mad titan’s arrival from outer space fits perfectly with Season 7’s alien theme.

Here’s how you can complete the Fortnite Season 7 Week 2 Quest to find Graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner.

Where to find Graffiti in Fortnite

There are brand-new challenges in Week 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, and here’s how you can complete the one that requires you to find graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner.

There is a brand-new set of weekly challenges available for you to complete so that you can earn some XP, progress through the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass and unlock the Rick Sanchez skin.

One of the Week 2 Epic Quests requires you to search for a Graffiti-covered wall at either Hydro 16 or Catty Corner. Here’s exactly where you can find each of these locations and get this done.

To complete this Fortnite challenge, you’ll first need to complete another Quest that has you collect spray cans from warehouses around Pleasant Park and Dirty Docks. You should be able to find those easily enough.

Once that’s done, you can find a Graffiti-covered wall at the hydro plant known as Hydro 16, as well as in Catty Corner. Once you’ve located one of these, you’ll need to walk up to it and interact with it.

To make this easier, we’ve marked both of the Graffiti locations on the map below:

The Hydro 16 landmark is located near Slurpy Swamp, and you can find it by heading along the road east out of that area. The Graffiti will be on a wall around the front, right above the murky water.

Alternatively, you can choose to visit Catty Corner near the southeast corner of the map. Rather than finding the wall directly inside the area, you’ll need to make your way east along the road out of there.

The Graffiti will be on a wall that’s along the road next to a bunker. Interact with it, and this will net you a total of 30,000 XP.

Just be sure to drop directly into either of these areas after you jump from the Battle Bus. However, other players may also have the same idea, so it’s best to be ready for a battle.

That’s all you need to do to complete this weekly challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. You can also check out our guide on how to level up the Season 7 Battle Pass as fast as possible.

Apex Legends devs finally fixing frustrating stuttering issues

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix is coming for the stuttering issues plaguing Apex Legends on PC.

Respawn confirm fix for Apex Legends stuttering issue

Stuttering issues can often make playing Apex Legends at a high frame rate feel much less fun, but Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix for this problem is on its way.

One advantage to playing games on PC is that you get to enjoy them at a decently high frame rate. While that sounds fun, it also comes with its own set of problems, as Apex Legends fans have to deal with stuttering issues.

This is when the high frame rate causes the game to be choppy, ruining your accuracy. As a result, players often end up lowering the FPS. Now, Respawn have assured fans that this will soon be resolved.

Apex Legends Season 9 roster

Apex Legends fans were discussing the “microstutter bug” on Reddit, and this gained a response from Respawn’s Lead Software Engineer Samy ‘ricklesauceur’ Duc.

One player asked if there was any way to get past the game’s 300 FPS cap, and another user advised against trying this. The game engine has a bug in it which causes a microstutter when you reach 180 FPS.

The developer then confirmed that this issue “should be gone after [the] next patch.” This fix will allow players on higher-end rigs to enjoy smoother gameplay than before.

Respawn finally fixing Apex Legends stuttering issues

The devs have been focused on fixing multiple in-game issues ever since the Legacy update went live. There have also been upcoming changes teased for Evo Shields recently.

Once this patch arrives, PC gamers should be able to get past the 180 FPS mark without encountering stuttering issues. There’s currently no date given for when we should expect to see this update patch.

This fix seems to be exclusive to PC, and players experiencing stutter issues on console will have to wait for a wider patch.
