GTA Online’s upcoming summer update will provide fans with more content to enjoy and, of course, items to spend their money on. Let’s get into the release date and what to expect.

After receiving another weekly update recently, which saw a new vehicle take to the podium in the Casino and various updates detailed in the patch notes, news has come out surrounding a new summer update.

All this new content is suspected to be part of the rollout before releasing the next-gen version of GTA, or perhaps it’s to keep players satisfied amongst the news that GTA 6 is a long way off.

GTA’s latest update saw new survival maps introduced for players to get their hands on. However, the developers aren’t stopping there, as it seems even more content is on the way.

GTA Online Summer Update

Popular GTA Online leaker @TezFunz2 recently stated that the summer update would be seen as early as July 22. The current update in GTA Online is expected to end on July 20, so make sure you make the most of it while you can, as, after that, players will be getting something new.

Los Santos Summer Special

The incoming car-themed summer update for GTA Online will feature new cars and robberies for players. The update seems to be focussing on racing, specifically underground racing.

Rockstar Games Newswire that was released on May 18 actually teased the update:

“In Los Santos, car culture is back on the streets in a big way, with new opportunities for fans of performance and customization upgrades to get together with like-minded gearheads to test and show off their rides free from interference from authorities and other troublemakers.”

There was also mention of “multi-part robbery missions” and a new “precisely modified getaway vehicle,” which could be a part of these robbery missions.

Although the Newswire didn’t reveal much, players should be excited for what’s to come, as it sounds like it could be quite a large update with a decent amount of new content.

Stay tuned to this page for updates on the GTA Online Summer update, as we’ll update when more details are announced.

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts: Team 2, FUT upgrades & prices

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts is the latest promotion to hit Ultimate Team, and we’ve got all the details about the event right here.

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts

Road to the Knockouts is FIFA 22’s addition to Road to the Finals cards from previous years of FUT. Here’s everything we know so far about this year’s European promotion, from the players in Team 2 to the upgrade structure and prices.

Ultimate Team’s special cards are one of the key features that keep the mode engaging throughout the long season.

Players can’t help but hunt for those elusive ICON cards or grind for a Ones to Watch that will take their team to the next level.

FIFA 22’s next promotion is Road to the Knockouts, based on European football’s top competitions.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Team 2 of Road to the Knockouts is live in FIFA 22, and there are some tasty-looking players that could grow into some of the game’s best if their team performs.

Stars from all three of this year’s European competitions are included, from some of the sport’s biggest clubs.

Every member of Team 2 is available in packs, while others have been added later as Squad Building Challenge or objective players.

RTTK began on Friday, October 15, 2021, with Team 1 landing in packs at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

Much to the surprise of many fans, EA began teasing its next promotion almost immediately after the previous one ended.

We expect Team 2 to release on Friday, October 22, 2021, at the same time as the previous week.

It’s unclear at the moment how long the event will last, as Rulebreakers was originally expected to drop on October 22. We’ll update this page as soon as more details are available.

What is FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts?

FIFA 21 Road to the Final

Based on the information released so far, RTTK appears to be an addition to the usual Road to the Finals promotion.

These cards will increase in rating based on the player’s team’s performance in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, or Europa Conference League.

Unlike the Team of the Week, these cards aren’t performance-based. So, even if the player featured on the card doesn’t play, they will still be upgraded if their team makes it through.

EA has already confirmed that RTTK cards are only live for the group stages, and Road to the Finals card will drop later in the year and be completely separate.

How do Road to the Knockouts upgrades work?

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts upgrades

Each RTTK player is given an initial boost to their base card, whether it be a plus one in the case of Andrew Robertson, or an upgrade of four to Leroy Sane.

There is then the opportunity to receive two future boosts, based on how their team performs in the group stages of their European competition.

They will be upgraded if their club:

  • Qualifies for the knockout stages
  • Wins three out of their final four group stage games

If a player qualifies for the Europa League knockout stages by finishing third in their Champions League group, they will not be eligible for an upgrade.

EA is yet to announce how big the upgrades will be, but based on previous years, fans can look forward to an increased overall rating of one or two for each.

The official second team of RTTK players is yet to be revealed, but there’s plenty of possibilities when you consider the sheer number of players competing across the three tournaments.

Team 1 already has some big names, but some clubs are yet to be represented in the promotion so far.

We’re awaiting the second reveal, so here are our best predictions for who could be part of the second team:

  • Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund)
  • Timo Werner (Chelsea)
  • Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona)
  • Yuri Tielemens (Leicester City)
  • Gelson Martins (Monaco)
  • Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen)
  • Jack Grealish (Manchester City)
  • Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma)
  • Karl Toko Ekambi (Lyon)
  • Alejandro Gomez (Sevilla)
  • Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
  • Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)

Apex Legends Season 11 Storm Point map will feature loads of wildlife

Apex Legends Season 11 will bring a brand new map, Storm Point, which will feature an abundance of wildlife for players to interact with.

The new Apex Legends Season 11 Storm Point map will supposedly contain an abundance of wildlife that players will be able to interact with.

Apex Legends Season 11 isn’t far off for players now, as Respawn has officially revealed the new season through two recent trailers.

The launch trailer for Season 11: Escape even showed off the new Storm Point map, as well as Legend Ash.

The trailer featured a variety of wildlife, from things we’ve seen in the past like Flyers and Prowlers, to new animals we’ve never encountered.

This isn’t the first time a map will feature wildlife, as we’ve seen Prowlers on World’s Edge and Flyers on Kings Canyon.

Having said that, some of the leaks reported by Thordan Smash surrounding the wildlife on Storm Point suggest that the new Season 11 map will have way more variety of these animals, as well as perhaps deeper interaction with them.

Prowlers

Prowlers aren’t new to Apex Legends, however, Storm Point may feature a more tropical version of the creature.

In the video, Thordan states that Prowlers will have their designated area, and will not be free to roam the map. This will most likely be similar to Trials on World’s Edge, where players fight off Prowlers for rewards.

Spiders

Although it was quite unexpected, the new launch trailer also showed off some new wildlife we haven’t seen before, spiders. For those with arachnophobia, you may not like this, but there will also be a portion of the map in Storm Point where spiders will spawn.

The spiders will not be roaming the map freely and will be restricted to a certain location. There will also be a maximum of twelve spiders allowed in this area so don’t worry about being overrun.

Code has also revealed that players may see spider eggs, which will burst with some of the critters jumping out and chasing players down.

Goliath

Storm Point will also host a Goliath, a massive animal that is almost like an alien Ape, twice the width of Gibraltar.

Once again, this Goliath will have its own “pit” which the creature will be restricted to. Players will most likely have to fight this beast to gain rewards, and it may not be that easy considering the animal’s size.

Flyers

Finally, we have the Flyers, which are also not new to Apex Legends. Players have seen Flyers cruising around the skies of Kings Canyon often holding Deathboxes with loot. Players can shoot the Flyers for them to release the Deathboxes.

Perhaps they will be similarly returning to Storm Point, or maybe players will be able to interact with them differently. There will be a maximum of 54 Flyers on the map at one time, which is a hell of a lot!

Rewards

One thing Thordan is certain about is that players will be rewarded for their interactions with the wildlife, especially when it comes to the Goliath. Players will likely be rewarded with high-tier loot when taking on these creatures, so regardless of your fears it will be worth it!

There you have it, the new Apex Legends Season 11 map, Storm Point, just may have more in store for players than we expected.

Of course, these are all leaks so take this information lightly, but we do expect to see all these types of wildlife in some compacity.

GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition: Where does Grand Theft Auto III take place?

The GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition is offering a chance to revisit Vice City and San Andreas, but where is GTA 3 set?

Published

Despite being all-time classics, lots of modern gamers won’t be familiar with the original GTA trilogy of games from the PS2 era. Vice City and San Andreas are self-explanatory, but where is Rockstar’s GTA 3 set?

There is some obvious disappointment that GTA VI still hasn’t been announced yet, despite it being eight years since the ever-successful GTA V was released.

However, Rockstar has curtailed this sadness by developing Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of GTA III, Rockstar has decided to create the most complete makeovers of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas to date. But these games are still quite new to a whole generation, and it’s left many wondering where GTA III is set.

Which city does GTA III take place in?

Some players may be shocked to know that GTA III took place in Liberty City, meaning that Grand Theft Auto IV wasn’t the first GTA game to be set there.

Yes, Rockstar’s first real foray into a 3D, open-world, sandbox design was in the fictional city based on New York.

We don’t know why it was called GTA III and not GTA: Liberty City – in the style of the other trilogy entries in the franchise. Either way, given that the game originally came out in 2001, it’s understandable that lots of current gamers now might not be privy to this knowledge.

When is GTA III set?

There doesn’t seem to be any official lore or information to give an accurate date, but according to multiple sources, and the GTA Fandom Wiki, the third main entry into the series was set in the year of its release – 2001.

GTA III is part of the aforementioned Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy: Definitive Edition, and we’ve had our first look at the game through its debut trailer.
