When is the GTA Online Fixers update: Dr. Dre, start date & leaks

Here’s everything we know about the GTA Online Fixers update, including the start date and return of Dr. Dre.

Dr. Dre in GTA Online

Some new leaks have revealed that Rockstar will be featuring Dr. Dre in a new GTA Online content update, and here’s everything know about it, including the Fixers update release date.

While GTA 6 has yet to be announced, fans of the Grand Theft Auto series still have plenty of content to enjoy such as the new GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition. Now, Rockstar is bringing some new additions to GTA Online.

Many new activities will arrive in the online multiplayer title when a new update drops, and some leaks point to the return of Dr. Dre in the patch. We’ll go over everything that has been revealed so far.

GTA Online Fixer update start date

Cars exploding in GTA Online

At the time of writing, Rockstar Games have yet to give us an official start date, but they often drop updates in GTA Online every Thursday. So, we will probably see it arrive during that time of the week.

While this update patch doesn’t have an official name yet, reliable leaker Tez2 revealed that it has been codenamed ‘Fixers’ which seems to suggest the return of “Tuner-alike contracts.”

This update will serve as a content shake-up to make things a bit more interesting for players when they drop into Los Santos in GTA Online. We will probably see some fun new additions when it arrives.

At the time of writing, Tez2 doesn’t have more exact details about what this content will be. Rockstar Games haven’t provided any information about the Fixers update but we’ll update this piece once we have some official information.

Dr. Dre returns in GTA Online Fixers update

Popular rapper Dr. Dre was a major part of GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist and he might now make his return in the GTA Online Fixers update. It’s unclear what role he will play when the patch drops.

Tez2 claims that new “legit” business will be added to the game as part of the update. Since Dr.Dre is involved, this will probably be music-centered and will also include some new contracts.

It’s worth keeping in mind that Rockstar Games have yet to verify this information, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until we hear something official. We’ll keep checking for any new developments.

FIFA 22 Black Friday

FIFA 22’s Black Friday promo is finally here, bringing new Ultimate Team Signature Signing cards, Best of TOTW packs, SBCs, coin discounts, and much more.

The Black Friday promotion is a yearly Ultimate Team tradition, giving players their best chance yet to open a boatload of packs – and burn through some FIFA Points.

It’s also a chance for EA to bring back some of the best TOTW cards of the year so far that fans might have missed out on.

FIFA 22 is no different, so here’s everything coming as part of this year’s FUT Black Friday bonanza.

FIFA 22 Black Friday start date

FIFA 22 Black Friday loading screen

This year, Black Friday falls on Friday, November 26, 2021. FIFA fans can expect the event to kick off in-game at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT on the day.

EA surprised players in FIFA 21 by starting the festivities with pre-Black Friday content a day early. If they take the same approach this year, drop into FUT on Thursday, November 25, 2021.

As soon as the time comes, the bombardment of lightning rounds, SBCs, and objectives will begin. It will conclude four days later on Tuesday, November 30, after another day of Cyber Monday celebrations.

FIFA 22 Black Friday Best of TOTW Team 1

FIFA 21 best of TOTW

A staple of Black Friday in FIFA has always been Best of TOTW packs. The 11 best in-forms from the year so far return to packs alongside the current TOTW.

They tend to be accompanied by a ‘Best Of TOTW Upgrade’ SBC, guaranteeing one of these unreal cards walks out of the pack.

This year’s Best of TOTW has not only re-released the best cards from the season so far, but have also included hand-selected cards to receive a boots, leaving out players like Neymar and Mane who were expected to get upgrades.

You can view the 11 Best of TOTW Team 1 cards below.

  • Kylian Mbappé (92 – ST) – PSG
  • Mohamed Salah (91 – RW) – Liverpool
  • Son Heung-min (90 – LM) – Spurs
  • Luis Suárez (90 – ST) – Atletico Madrid
  • Leon Goretzka (88 – CM) – Bayern Munich
  • Phil Foden (90 – LW) – Manchester City
  • Jesus Navas ⁠(86 – RB) – Sevilla

  • Theo Hernandez (86 – LWB) – AC Milan
  • Vinicius Jr. (85 – LW) – Real Madrid
  • Dayot Upamecano (84 – CB) – Bayern Munich

FIFA 22 Black Friday Signature Signings

FIFA 22's FUT Signature Signings cards

While last year’s Black Friday event introduced Record Breakers, EA Sports have taken a slightly different route for 2022’s Ultimate Team event.

Signature Signings takes a look at the “best and most impactful transfers” in recent football history, picking out players who have made incredible contributions to their new teams. There are 11 players in total, who are:

  • Kevin De Bruyne (93 – CAM) – Manchester City
  • Milan Skriniar (88 – CB) – Inter Milan
  • Wissam Ben Yedder (87 – ST) – AS Monaco
  • Axel Witsel (87 – CDM) – Borrusia Dortmund
  • Raul Jimenez (86 – ST) – Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Andrej Kramaric (86 – ST) – Hoffenheim
  • Diego Carlos (85 – CB) – Sevilla
  • Youcef Atal (85 – RB) – OGC Nice
  • Renato Sanches (84 – CM) – Lille
  • Marcus Edwards (84 – RW) – Vitoria De Guimaraes

FIFA 22 Black Friday SBCs, objectives, and packs

Ronaldo walkout pack

Over the course of the Black Friday promo, FUT fans are showered with players to grind for and packs to open.

Lightning rounds of high-value packs will hit the store regularly. These can be bought with coins and FIFA Points as normal, but there are only so many for the entire player base to fight over. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

You can also expect to see promo packs on the store at a discount. For example, Prime Gold Players Packs (45k) could be on sale for 22,500 coins.

Daily SBCs are a common feature of Black Friday, giving out both pack and special player rewards, such as Flashbacks. These only last 24-hours, so be sure to check the back every day not to miss out.

Finally, there will be objectives to complete, again offering pack and player rewards. These can range from scoring a certain number of goals with players from a certain league, to having to build a special squad and play FUT Friendlies.

With the promos we’ve seen so far in FIFA 22, there’s also a chance we might also see some of the best Rulebreakers, Ones to Watch, or Road to the Knockouts cards come back. However, this is not confirmed.

That was everything we know so far about Black Friday in FIFA 22. We’ll be updating this page as EA drop more details about this wallet-shredding event, so check back here for future updates.

Nick Fury in Fortnite

Epic Games have added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything you need to know about the new S.H.I.E.L.D Set, including the price.

Fortnite has done multiple collaborations with Marvel in the past, with Carnage and Venom joining in Season 8, and the Season 4 Battle Pass consisting of superheroes. Spider-Man is also rumored to be arriving soon.

Epic Games aren’t done with Marvel characters just as Nick Fury has been added as a brand-new skin for players to unlock in Fortnite, complete with his own back bling, glider, and bundle.

Here’s how you can add these to your inventory.

Fortnite S.H.I.E.L.D. Set Items

Nick Fury is the director of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D and works closely with the Avengers. Epic Games added his outfit to the Fortnite Item Shop on November 26, and you can also get the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.

Here’s everything in the S.H.I.E.L.D Set:

  • Nick Fury outfit
  • F.I.E.L.D Pack Back Bling 
  • Director’s Scythe Pickaxe 
  • First-Strike Infiltration Glider
  • Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen

Fury has played a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and his Fortnite skin is based on his appearance in those. The Back Bling is included with the outfit, but you’ll have to purchase the Pickaxe and Glider separately.

Fortnite Nick Fury bundle price

Nick Fury’s outfit and Back Bling bundle cost 1,500 V-Bucks while the Glider and Pickaxe cost 800 V-Bucks each. Alternatively, you could spring for the whole S.H.I.E.L.D set for just 2,000 V-Bucks.

This costs the same as a Legendary skin includes all of these items, making it one of the cheapest bundles in the game. You can then equip the Nick Fury outfit as you battle Sideways Cube Monsters.

This bundle is an exciting addition for both Marvel and Fortnite fans. Epic Games might introduce even more crossovers before Season 8 ends, as there are other popular franchises that they can collaborate with.
