gta 6 files in rdr2 leak

Evidence has been found in Red Dead Redemption 2 that would suggest that GTA 6 is in development. Or that we have more information on the upcoming GTA 5 re-release that’s heading to next-gen.

It’s fair to say that information about GTA 6 is about as barebones as can be. Fans are still currently in limbo as to whether or not the game even exists. It’s currently Rockstar’s own Schrodinger’s Cat.

With no concrete information to sink their teeth into, rabid fans are always scouring GTA 5, GTA Online, and Red Dead Redemption 2 for even the tiniest hints of new information. Well, some have been discovered. A file that does not fit RDR2 has been tracked down and it’s very interesting.

GTA 6 hinted at with RDR2 hidden file

A slew of rumors is all GTA fans have had to shout about in the last few years as GTA 5 continues to dominate the entertainment landscape as the most profitable piece of media ever created.

Recently, there have been rumors, concerning GTA 6, that the game will debut a female protagonist. It may even be set in Vice City too.

The errant file was found and reported to the official GTA Forum by user rollschuh2282. Tucked away in the RDR2′ files are items pertaining to parachutes. Now, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that this isn’t something designed for RDR2. These items have probably accidentally found their way into the files.

The only question that remains, is this a component of GTA 6? Or something to do with the PS5 and Xbox Series X port of GTA 5?

The interesting part is that these files don’t exist in GTA 5 in any way shape or form. So either this is being added specifically to the next-gen version, or something else entirely.

As with all of these things GTA-related, we can only speculate for the time being. If anything does become a bit more clear, we’ll let you know.

How to win Warzone Season 3 Gulag: Tips and strategies guide

The latest season in Call of Duty Warzone brings back a mock-up of a fan favourite map for players to experience in the Gulag.

Warzone gulag season 3

The latest Warzone update, and end to Season 2 with the Destruction of Verdansk event, has brought about a new Gulag layout for players to battle out their intense 1v1s.

In Warzone Season 3, players can finally experience Verdansk ’84, a reimagined version of the classic Warzone map set in the 1980s.

Along with this new map, a new Gulag is also present, which many dedicated Call of Duty players may recognize from Black Ops 2.

Standoff Gulag

For those unaware, the Gulag is where players fight for a second chance after their first elimination, which could either end in them dropping back into the map, or being sent back to the lobby, depending on whether they win or those.

Warzone’s Gulag has been updated in the past, with the previous layout taking the form of the Black Ops series most popular map, Nuketown. This Season in Call of Duty Warzone, the Gulag has taken the layout from fan-favorite Black Ops 2 map, Standoff, check out the cinematic trailer below.

Although the layout is slightly different, taking on a smaller scale, it will still feel similar to those familiar with the Black Ops 2 map.

The new Warzone Gulag is smaller than the previous Nuketown one, making for intense engagements. The Layout is taken from Standoff’s center, with the tank and building opposite each other.

If players take too long to battle it out, the flag will appear in the centre of the map, next to the tank and just past the wall outside the small building structure.

The building, for those who aren’t aware, features a window that looks out on the opposite spawn, but be aware as players can also come through the bottom floor or even a ladder at the back.

Best strategy

The best strategy so far seems to be getting to the top floor of the building, whatever side you start on. Be cautious, as both spawns have options to get to the top floor fairly quickly, and you could be staring right at someone as soon as you reach the top.

The top floor is a great spot to take as you can gain an advantage on the opponent if they decide to ignore the building and take the street route where the tank is. Further, the top floor also allows you to peak at the bottom of the building, catching out those opponents who want to sneak through.

It does seem a bit harder for spectators to see what’s going on in the Gulag map, as the walls and building structures mean you might be having to look through the walkway floor to help your teammates with callouts.

Apex Legends arenas mode

There is a ton of content planned for Apex Legends Season 9, including the introduction of an ‘Arena’ mode to the battle royale. Here’s everything that’s been revealed about it, including the release date, maps & rewards

Respawn Entertainment tends to introduce new game modes to Apex Legends in order to keep it fresh, like the Winter Express LTM. These bring changes to major aspects of the game, including the map, loot, and gameplay.

While they’ve all been battle royale-style modes so far, it seems that’s about to change. Now, a new game mode called Arenas has officially been confirmed for Apex Legends. Here’s what we know about it so far.

Season 9 Teaser Arena

When is the Apex Legends Arenas release date?

Thanks to a new in-game teaser, we now know that Arenas will arrive in Apex Legends during Season 9, on May 4.

Respawn previously said that we should expect some big surprises in the coming season.

A full reveal of Arenas mode is planned for Monday, April 26. During this, we’ll get a closer look at how this mode works.

What is the Apex Legends Arenas mode?

The first leak regarding this mode came from notable data miner Shrugtal who pointed out that this may be a 3v3 deathmatch. This fits perfectly in Apex Legends since the battle royale puts emphasis on playing in trios.

Respawn Entertainment suggested that this mode will feel like a “full game,” meaning that we can expect some unique rules, maps, and gameplay mechanics to help it stand out in the battle royale.

Apex Legends Arenas maps

Various Kings Canyon spots were said to have been tested as potential maps for the Arenas mode. These were: Capacitor, Rig, Broken Relay, Gauntlet, Cascades, Repulsor, and Water Treatment. 

A rumor began circulating around that Skulltown would also make its comeback as a map for this mode, but there’s nothing that confirms this.

The Ash teaser shows of a location that could be one of these maps, and the Apex Legends 100 million player celebration video shows another possible candidate on Olympus.

Apex Legends Arenas rewards

As with other game modes in Apex Legends, you’ll be able to earn some neat cosmetic rewards such as badgers for your player card. Completing the Arena teaser will grant you the “Impress Me” badge.

While we don’t have more information beyond that, we expect Arenas to contain even more unique awards that are exclusive to this game mode.

Will Arenas mode have Ranked Play?

Apex Legends data miners have stated that Arenas will have a Ranked component, but it’s not clear if this will be connected with the main Ranked tiers of the battle royale.

We won’t know more until some more leaks or official information emerges. As Season 9 draws closer, we’ll keep checking any updates, and will inform you of anything new that we learn.

Battlefield 6: Release date, leaks, rumors & battle royale

Battlefield 6 is set to release in 2021, and here’s everything we know about the FPS title including setting, launch date, and leaks.

Battlefield 2021

The latest installment in EA and DICE’s legendary FPS is set to release this year, and with rumors and leaks building excitement, here’s everything we know about Battlefield 6.

The franchise has remained pretty quiet since the release of Battlefield V back in 2018, but it remains one of the most popular FPS titles on the market. The series acts as the perfect alternative to the close-quarters combat of Call of Duty, bringing massive battles fought across vast locations throughout history.

After the disappointing reception to the Firestorm battle royale mode, EA and DICE didn’t release a new game in 2020, but with confirmation at EA Play that Battlefield 6 was in the works for 2021, anticipation immediately started to build.

Unsurprisingly, leaks and rumors are flooding the internet, with fans desperate to find any information they can about the upcoming release. From the game’s setting, to the timeframe it’s found in, and even a potential release date, here’s everything we know about Battlefield 6.

Battlefield 6 release date

Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact release date for Battlefield 6 just yet, but in an investor’s call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson did confirm that they planned to reveal the game “in the spring,” and then “deliver the defining Battlefield experience in the 2021 holiday season.”

Most Battlefield games release in either October or November, but considering that many game developers are currently working from home, it’s possible this may push that timeline back a little.

According to DICE, the game is now in “daily playtesting mode,” focusing on “polishing and balancing as they attempt to make the best Battlefield they can.

When will Battlefield 6 be set?

There have been plenty of rumors about the timeline in which Battlefield 6 will be set, but most agree that we’re likely to find ourselves in an alternate reality of the modern-day.

According to well-known leaker Tom Henderson, the game will take place “around 10 years from now”, so that developers are able to “implement weapons and vehicles that are currently in military development today.”

Where will Battlefield 6 be set?

As for where we’re going, that also remains a keenly guarded secret. Henderson has started to leak alleged information from the game’s first teaser, sharing drawings of what it will look like. One of the most detailed drawings is taken from the viewpoint of a pilot, flying towards a space station surrounded by trees.

Another drawing showed a zoomed-out look at this location, with the leaker then sharing a link to Google Earth, revealing that the space station appears to be Tanegashima Space Center in Japan.

When will the Battlefield 6 trailer release?

The good news on this front is that it appears we’re not far away from the release of the trailer. Henderson believes it is “imminent,” but wasn’t able to give an exact date.

We do know that EA has an investor call on Tuesday, May 11, so it’s possible we see it around that date. Otherwise, we’ll likely get our first glimpse at Battlefield 6 at E3 2021 in June.

Will Battlefield 6 have a battle royale?

All signs point to yes. In a leak posted to the Battlefield 6 subreddit, it was claimed that the game will have a battle royale after DICE tested the waters with Firestorm in 2019, but were unable to say whether it will be free-to-play like rival Warzone or only available to those who buy the full game.

The appetite for a battle royale is certainly there, with popular streamer Dr Disrespect clearly excited by the prospect, but we’re still awaiting official confirmation from the developers.

Will Battlefield 6 be on PS4 and Xbox One?

No. In an official reveal on April 22, DICE confirmed that the 2021 edition of Battlefield will only be available on PS5, Xbox Series Z & S, and PC. There will be no support for PS4 or Xbox One.

DICe say the game will be “brought to life” with the “power” of next-fen consoles, which would line up with rumored reasons as to why there was no 2020 release in the Battlefield franchise.

In a statement to GameSpot back in May 2020, EA confirmed that they would be releasing the game’s on the new consoles in an attempt to target “new innovation that will be enabled by next-gen platforms.”

This was the main reason EA and DICE decided not to release a Battlefield game in 2020, as the amount of people who would have had either a PS5 or Xbox Series X would still be small compared to what it will be a year on.
