BlizzCon 2021 will be the celebration of 30 years for one of the world’s most recognizable video game companies. The 2-day event is a digital-only experience, and new details are expected on Overwatch 2 & more. We have details on how you can watch it.
It’s hard to truly measure the impact that Blizzard Entertainment’s games have had on the industry and society in general. They have created some of gaming’s most popular franchises of all time in Diablo, Starcraft, Overwatch, and the Warcraft universe.
Their 30th-anniversary celebration will sadly take place behind closed doors, and the two-day spectacular – referred to as BlizzConline – is expected to celebrate all things Blizzard. One of the most anticipated aspects of the event is hopefully the reveal of more Overwatch 2 details.
New Overwatch 2 expected to be announced
Even Blizzard couldn’t have expected the universally positive reception that Overwatch was going to receive. The game is heading into its sixth year, and the legacy it’s already accumulated is remarkable.
Blizzard has already confirmed that Overwatch 2 is not releasing in 2021, but the event is expected to release some new information on the game. We already know it’s expected to feature some new PvE content, and hopefully, they will expand upon this by letting us know how the game is progressing.
How to watch BlizzCon 2021

Here’s how you can watch everything and what will be on:
- You can head to either the BlizzConline website or watch the coverage on YouTube or Twitch
- There will be a choice of six channels of content so you can choose which media you want to watch

Fortnite Week 6 location challenge: Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals & Lockie’s Lighthouse
You’ll have to visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals and Lockie’s Lighthouse for a Fortnite week 6 challenge, and here’s where you can find them.
One of the Epic Quests in Week 6 of Fortnite Season 6 requires you to visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse. We’ll go over each of these locations on the battle royale’s map.
One of these challenges requires you to visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse. We’ll help make things a little easier by marking these locations on the map, so that you can complete this Epic Quest.
Where to find Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, & Lockie’s Lighthouse in Fortnite
The good news is that these landmarks aren’t particularly difficult to find if you know where to look on Fortnite Island. All of these are easily identifiable once you spot them, and two of them are fairly close to each other.
We’ve marked each of these locations on Fortnite’s map below:
Lockie’s Lighthouse is the easiest of these locations to find. It’s on its own little island in the Northern section of the map, right between Stealthy Stronghold and Craggy Cliffs. You’ll find it extremely difficult to miss.
As the name implies, Fancy View is a nice-looking house by the coast just northwest of Holly Hedges. If you head inside then you’ll find a ton of Rocket League merchandise lying around, so just stick to the road until you get there.
Finally, Rainbow Rentals is on the west coast of the Island and consists of five colorful huts on the beach. You can easily rotate there from Holly Hedges since it’s directly southwest of that area.
That covers all the locations of the landmarks that you have you have to visit in order to complete the Week 6 challenge. As with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.
You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests as well if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest that’s available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.

10 Best Drift Cars in GTA Online
Players who want to show off how talented they are at drifting will want to use the best drift cars that GTA Online has to offer.
GTA Online has a vast array of the best cars that players can use to traverse Los Santos at incredible speeds and get into all sorts of trouble when driving, especially when it comes to wanting to drift.
It doesn’t get much better than speeding down a road and executing some exciting drifting to get the blood pumping and show off for any other players who may be watching the skilled driving display you are putting on.
Thanks to some drifting tests and displays from YouTuber StevieWunderkid, here are the 10 best drift cars in GTA Online.
Best Drift Cars in GTA Online
10. Karin Futo
Players will find that the Karin Futo is the best bang for their buck when it comes to having strong drifting capabilities without breaking the bank on a new set of wheels.
It’s one of the easier GTA online drifting cars to learn how to use, which means it’s perfect for beginners looking to hone their skills and can be bought at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
9. Vulcar Nebula Turbo
The Vulcar Nebula Turbo is another underrated drift car in the world of GTA Online and is a low-skill level vehicle for players to try out drifting at lower speeds, but will not hold up so well when drifting at higher speeds.
You can find the Vulcar Nebula Turbo with the Karin Futo at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
8. Declasse Drift Yosemite
We now get to the first truck on the list with the Declasse Drift Yosemite. This muscle vehicle can also be purchased at Southern San Andreas Super Autos and is similar to the Karin Futo and Vulcar Nebula Turbo in that it excels at drifting at lower speeds.
However, it performs much better than the previous two GTA Online drift cars at higher speeds, so players looking for not too high-skill-level drifting vehicles that can perform when going fast will be happy with the Declasse Drift Yosemite.
7. Vapid Imperator
Our next vehicle is the Vapid Imperator, and it will burn a bigger hole in your GTA Online wallet than the previous cars on this list when you go to the Arena War website to purchase this set of wheels.
However, this higher price will provide you with much more power and very smooth handling that will allow any player to flying around corners like an expert drifter.
6. Schyster Fusilade
Power is the name of the game for the Schyster Fusilade, especially when it comes to the price of this vehicle compared to others that provide the same level of drifting capability. It is not the best for lower-skilled drifters and would be better suited for those who have had some time perfecting this craft.
If the Schyster Fusilade is calling your name, you can try and find it on the streets of Los Santos or visit Southern San Andreas Super Autos to add it to your collection.
5. Willard Faction
It is hard to find a better-looking vehicle than a traditional muscle car, and the Willard Faction provides this signature look with some impressive drifting capabilities. Its heavier frame allows players to excel in pulling off longer slides that will undoubtedly go well in any highlight video.
Benny’s Original Motor Works is the place to go if you are looking to secure the Willard Faction and see why it is one of the best GTA Online drifting cars.
4. Benefactor Schwartzer
Those looking to snag a high-quality drifting car for cheap should look no further than the Benefactor Schwartzer, as this sports car combines affordability with power and smoothness that vehicles in a similar price range do not possess.

The streets of Los Santos or Southern San Andreas Super Autos are the places to look if you are looking to check out and purchase the Benefactor Schwartzer.
3. Bravado Redwood Gauntlet
Having a light frame allows the Bravado Redwood Gauntlet to shine when it comes to performing high-level drifting. This light amount of weight may cause some headaches when it comes to getting used to it, but some practice will have you flying around corners with precision.
Returning players can get the Bravado Redwood Gauntlet for free, and it is also available for purchase at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
2. Bravado Banshee 900R
One of the most used and best drifting vehicles that players can get their hands in the popular Rockstar Games title is the Bravado Banshee 900R. Its insane power allows it to drift exceptionally well at top speeds, but its combination of performing drifting maneuvers at even low speeds makes the Bravado Banshee 900R one of the top choices for drifters.
Benny’s Original Motor Works is where you will need to make your way to if you want to get this vehicle at its highest drifting potential.
1. Dewbauchee Rapid GT
Balance makes the Dewbauchee Rapid GT what many consider to be the best of the best for drifting vehicles. Its more stable power compared to the Bravado Banshee 900r allows players to have much more control than the previous vehicle on this list, which can sometimes get out of control when you compare it to the Dewbauchee Rapid GT.
The Dewbauchee Rapid GT can be purchased at Legendary Motorsport for not too much money when you consider the top-of-the-line drifting capabilities that you are getting for the price tag.
