  • Combat Shotgun – $295,000

New nightclub

Along with everything else, avid GTA Online enthusiasts have got a new nightclub that they can visit and even buy. Music Locker can be found under the Diamond Casino and it will necessary for the first few steps of the Cayo Perico Heist.

How much does the Cayo Perico Heist payout?

The bewest expansion is set to see the biggest oayout of any GTA Online heist yet. If you’re successful, you’re all set to bring in a whopping $4 million!

But the big downside is that in order to complete the operation, you’ll already need to have invested a solid $2 million of your own money as the submarine is a requirement for the heist.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Bundesliga is expected to supply some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga Ratings

The Bundesliga will be the battleground for some of FIFA 23’s highest-rated stars, with players from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund set to impact Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Bundesliga ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each new FIFA title brings new Ultimate Team ratings based on player performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no different. To discern which players are deserving of an upgrade or downgrade, EA will analyze the 2021/2022 season.

In Germany, the 2021/2022 Bundesliga season saw Bayern Munich cruise to a tenth straight title. The battle for Champions League spots was a fierce one as Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig should all expect player rating upgrades in FIFA 23.

But who will be the best players in the Bundesliga? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Bundesliga players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Lewandowski FIFA 22

Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich92
Sadio ManeBayern Munich+190
Joshua KimmichBayern Munich+190
Manuel NeuerBayern Munich-189
Leon GoretzkaBayern Munich87
Thomas MullerBayern Munich-186
Kingsley ComanBayern Munich86
Filip KosticEintracht Frankfurt +286
Koen CasteelsWolfsburg-185
Christopher NkunkuRB Leipzig+485

It’s been quiet summer so far when it comes to Bundesliga transfers. However, things in Germany can still heat up with the summer transfer window open until September 1.

All eyes will be on Bayern Munich as they look to keep a hold of disgruntled star striker Robert Lewandowski. At this moment, the striker is attempting to force a move to Barcelona, but if he remains, there’s no doubt he’ll be the highest-rated FIFA 23 player in the Bundesliga.

Bayern dominates the predicted list of top ten Bundesliga players in FIFA 23. The illustrious German club won ten Bundesliga titles in a row and they’re the clear powerhouse option to pick up an eleventh straight title in 2023.

Elsewhere, Filip Kostic enjoyed a fantastic season in which Frankfurt secured a Europa League trophy. FIFA 22 delivered a whopping ten separate special Christopher Nkunku cards and the midfielder’s performances should see him rise to 84 or 85 in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga rating predictions: Every team’s best players

The Bundesliga is dominated by Bayern Munich players when it comes to landing a player in the top 10. Nonetheless, it’s still fascinating to see how EA upgrades and downgrades players from across Germany with each new title. In the 2021/2022 season, every team had both surprises and disappointments that should be reflected when FIFA 23 is released.

With this in mind, we’ve made our predictions for every Bundesliga club’s top three players in FIFA 23:

Fortnite 21.20 early patch notes: Downtime, Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, map changes

Here are the early patch notes for Fortnite Season 3’s 21.20 update in which Indiana Jones is finally set to arrive.

Indiana Jones in Fortnite 21.20 update

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is nearing its halfway point, with the 21.20 update set to add even more content to the game. Here’s everything we know so far, including when to expect the downtime, Indiana Jones’ arrival, and map changes.

Fortnite shows no sign of slowing down with Chapter 3 Season 3 adding even more to the blockbuster battle royale such as the new Ripsaw Launcher and Grapple Glove. The 21.10 update brought Darth Vader to the island and added the Super Styles, and the upcoming 21.20 update brings even more to the battle royale.

Here are the early patch notes for Fortnite’s 21.20 update, including the server downtime, the Indiana Jones skin, bug fixes, and map changes.

Fortnite 21.20 update release date & downtime

Fortnite’s 21.20 update will go live on July 5, with downtime beginning at around 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST and matchmaking disabled 30 minutes before.

The downtime usually lasts for a couple of hours, and then you can launch the game and experience all of the new content on offer.

Indiana Jones arrives in Fortnite 21.20 update

Indiana Jones skin in Fortnite chapter 3

Each Fortnite season comes with a bonus skin that Battle Pass owners can unlock a few weeks in, and Season 3’s 21.20 update finally brings Indiana Jones.

Although the skin isn’t set to arrive until July 7, two days after the update, Epic sometimes unlock the skin early — we’ll just need to wait and see.

Once the Indiana Jones Battle Pass page is unlocked, Fortnite players can start completing challenges to unlock the Harrison Ford skin and associated cosmetics.

Fortnite 21.20 map changes

The Fortnite Competitive Twitter account has confirmed that the Tumbledown Temple landmark will undergo “significant changes” with the 21.20 update.

While some expect the temple to get an Indiana Jones-themed makeover, it’s also possible that the Reality Tree will infect the area, giving the area a different theme each match.

Fortnite No Sweat Summer challenges

Peely in Fortnite No Sweat Summer event

Epic Games added the Island Hopper Creative Quests as part of the No Sweat Summer event and suggested that more challenges are still to come.

At the end of the Island Hopper blog post, Epic teased: “Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”

The Island Hopper Quests are only live until July 6, so it sounds like there will be even more challenges to complete after they conclude.

Fortnite 21.20 update bug fixes

Fortnite Reality Falls POI

Thanks to Epic Games’ Trello board of Fortnite Community Issues, we can see the major bug fixes that are set to arrive in the 21.20 update.

  • Battle Royale: Sapling Icon can be misplaced on the Map/Minimap
    • Players may see their Sapling Icon out in the ocean or otherwise off of the actual map and not anywhere near where they had planted it.
  • Creative: Tracker Device
    • We’re aware of an issue that is causing the tracker device to not update correctly for teams when multiple teams are able to use it.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch: OTW promo explained & predictions

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is set to be the first major promo of FUT 23, so here’s everything we know about the event so far.

Published

on

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is expected to be the first major promo of this season’s Ultimate Team, celebrating the most exciting moves from the summer transfer window. Here’s how FIFA 23 OTW will work, along with the players likely to feature.

Ones to Watch is always one of the most interesting and exciting promos in any FIFA, mainly because it tends to be the very first major event of the year. FIFA 23 will be no exception, as EA look to shine the spotlight on the biggest transfers of the summer.

FIFA 22 OTW was arguably the biggest ever, as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo switched clubs in a crazy end to the transfer window. While FIFA 23 OTW is unlikely to have as many groundbreaking signings to choose from, some of the game’s highest-rated players have been on the move.

Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, from how the cards will work to the players we expect to see.

Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?

Haaland playing for Man City in FIFA 22

EA are yet to confirm when FIFA 23 Ones to Watch will kick off, but we can look at previous years to gain a pretty good idea.

Last year, OTW got underway on October 1, the same day as FIFA 22’s worldwide release. With this in mind, we’d expect FIFA 23 OTW to begin on Friday, September 30, 2022.

This is the expected FIFA 23 release date based on various leaks and the usual schedule, but we’ll add new information to this section once it’s available.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained

Ones to Watch Team 2 FIFA 22

FIFA 23 OTW will award special live cards to players who have recently moved to a new club. These dynamic items will go up in rating depending on how well the player performs for their club in real life.

Each time a OTW star is handed a TOTW after a top display in their domestic league, the card will increase in rating and stats to match the most recent one.

For example, in FIFA 22, Dayot Upamecano started out at an 82-rated card after his move to Bayern Munich. But, by the end of the year, he was 87-rated and one of the best center-backs that the Bundesliga had to offer.

They will also receive an extra +1 boost for winning a certain number of matches after the promo begins. Last year, the threshold was five wins out of 10 games after October 2.

We’ll update this section with more specific information once EA officially announces the promo.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch predictions

Mane in FIFA 22

The summer transfer window is far from closed, but we’ve already seen some major signings that are a shoo-in to be a FIFA 23 OTW. On top of that, there are plenty of deals that are on the verge of going through that will surely make the cut.

Here are our predictions for FIFA 23 Ones to Watch so far:

Player NameTransferTransfer Confirmed?Predicted Rating
Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich to BarcelonaNo92
Erling HaalandBorussia Dortmund to Manchester CityYes90
