New concept art leaked for Halo Infinite

There is plenty of excitement over the upcoming Halo: Infinite, and some new leaks have emerged which reveal some neat-looking concept art for the highly-anticipated shooter.

Over the years, the Halo series has become one of the most popular shooter franchises of all time. The highly-anticipated Halo: Infinite is scheduled to release sometime during November 2021.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting news about the game’s arrival, and we recently got a closer look at the game through some weapon artwork. Now, some new concept art has been leaked for the upcoming title.

Leaked Halo: Infinite concept art

These images came from a Halo: Infinite wall calendar for 2022 on the shoptrends website, and some players immediately shared it on Reddit.

The concept art shows a variety of different maps, enemies, vehicles, and scenarios. While the art is cool, it doesn’t reveal anything new. It does show that choppers will be making their return, which was already confirmed.

One interesting thing to note is that Master chief uses his armor from Halo 4 and Halo 5 in most of these images from the early development stages, so it could be pointing towards Master Chief using this version of his armor in his adventures for Halo Infinite.

Halo: Infinite calender

While initially set for a December 2020 release, Halo: Infinite’s arrival ended up being pushed back due to the development being disturbed. The developers will take this time to fix any current in-game issues and make sure that the highly-anticipated game is as polished as possible when it is released.

Hopefully, we’ll get some more Halo Infinite gameplay footage at the Microsoft showcase that begins on June 13, 2021. You can check it out for yourself at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET.

We’ll keep checking for any more Halo: Infinite leaks and reveals that become public. Once we discover something new, we’ll be sure to update you.

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.

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.

Graffiti-covered wall in Fortnite

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.
