gta online 5 1.53 update

GTA 5 has an unexpected update to address some issues present within the game. It is specifically targeting GTA Online, in particular, Cayo Perico content. We know the size of the update and the full patch notes.

Rockstar’s customary Thursday update has been interrupted with a surprise update today. The weekly patch usually switches around certain bonuses within the world of Grand Theft Auto’s popular Online mode.

Our traditional GTA leaker TezFunz2 was able to secure the details early, and thanks to him we know the full extent of the update.

There appears to be a big discrepancy between the update on console and PC. The 1.53 update clocks in on console at a hefty 7 GB, whereas its PC counterpart only requires 92 MB.

There is no word from Rockstar as to why this appears to be the case. If there does turn out to be any differences, then we’ll update you.

Several important fixes have been implemented to improve several aspects of the game. We know the main issue fixes that the new update has provided for players.

Rockstar’s page has documented the main ones, and Reddit has also pointed some out too.

  • Fixed a glitch for the Ocelot Pariah in which spoiler mods would not appear after they had been purchased
  • Improved performance for the Cayo Perico Heist
  • Hack minigame video resolution has been reduced from 1080p to 720p to reduce the frequency of game crashing, when hack minigame starts
  • The glasses of one of the DJs have been updated

Given that GTA 5 is set to return for one more round on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, it’s no surprise that Rockstar is remaining grounded in their approach to GTA.

With all the rumors swirling around about GTA 6 and people wanting to know when GTA 6 will release, it’s important that Rockstar keeps their Grand Theft Auto fanbase satisfied.

Changes coming to FUT Draft rewards in FIFA 22, says leaker

Fans have been calling for changes to FUT Draft rewards for some time, and a new leak suggests that EA may have listened for FIFA 22.

FUT Draft has been a staple of Ultimate Team for many years now. According to a new leak, the FIFA 22 FUt Draft rewards will see a revamp that fans have been calling for in the franchise.

FIFA 22 is nearly upon us, and fans are itching to dive into another season of swapping and trading in Ultimate Team. With the additions of FUT Heroes and some fresh ICON cards, there’s more to grind for than ever before.

Opening packs is fundamental to Ultimate Team, and FUT Draft was added as a way to earn pack rewards quickly. However, the underwhelming rewards earned in Draft have caused the mode to be largely abandoned by the community.

However, according to a new leak, FUT Draft in FIFA 22 could see some changes that have been long-awaited by the community.

FUT Draft is an Ultimate Mode where fans spend 15,000 coins to build a team from scratch using a series of random player picks. They then use this team to play in up to four matches, with rewards increasing in value the more games you win without losing.

Unfortuntlaey, the random nature of opening FUT packs means that the items earned aren’t always valuable enough to make playing the mode productive.

Players will find that they have recuperated their 15,000 entry fee – even if they win the Draft by beating four rival teams in a row.

According to known Ultimate Team leaker FutSpy, EA is looking to solve this issue by adding new rewards to be won. The leaker uncovered code hinting that Draft rewards will now feature some cards of a guaranteed rating, some of 82 or higher and some of 83 or higher.

This is a way of ensuring that those who make it further are always rewarded for their efforts and that packs have much more chance of being worth 15,000 coins or more.

The news is likely to please long-time fans, who have been calling for more incentive to play the more for many years.

EA has yet to confirm if the leak is true, so stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for future updates.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is shaping up to be the biggest yet, and fans are eagerly awaiting EA dropping the top 100 player ratings for the coming year. Here’s everything we know so far.

Ultimate Team is comfortably the most popular mode in the FIFA series, as fans compete to fill out their clubs with the biggest superstars in world football. Every year, one of the major talking points is each player’s rating and whether they have been overrated or undervalued.

After confirming Icons and Ones to Watches, EA has finally revealed the top stars in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, so we’ve put together all the big names into one handy guide.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team ratings top 100

There are plenty of factors that can impact a player’s Ultimate Team rating. Sometimes a move to a big club will cause stats to rocket up, while a sub-par season can see top players hit with a downgrade.

With an eventful real-world season behind us, as well as a packed summer of international football, we’re expecting some big changes to the top 100 this year.

The 100 best players are set to be gradually revealed in the coming days. We’re expecting EA to unveil them in blocks until the lineup is finally confirmed on Friday, September 17.

No official times have been slated for the announcements, but the first 22 were posted at 4 PM BST / 11 AM EDT / 8 AM PDT, and they seem to be sticking to this schedule each day.

We will continue to update this table as more and more ratings are officially revealed.

EA has taken a different approach to the ratings reveal this year. Rather than gradually announcing the top 100 themselves day by day, they’ve allowed individual players and teams to reveal their ratings as and when they choose.

Meanwhile, the publisher’s website has been picking out the absolute best from different leagues in the Ratings Database.

One of the lists they have posted is the top 20 players from the English Premier League. Check them out below.

FIFA 22 top-rated Serie A players

Although the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku have fled Italy in favor of the Premier League, Serie A is still one of the go-to leagues when it comes to crafting a team.

There are plenty of high-rated cards to choose from in the Italian league, and some of the big names will actually make its players cheaper because they will be less sought-after by players building hybrid squads.

This makes Serie A a great division to focus on in the early stages of the game when coins can be hard to come by.

New leak claims Fortnite is adding another Warzone feature

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to implement a feature from Warzone in the game.

Ghost from Warzone and Jonesy in Fortnite

Some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Epic Games will be adding the sliding mechanic from Call of Duty: Warzone to Fortnite in a future update.

Battle Royale titles are highly competitive, and fans often call for these games to take inspiration from each other. Apex Legends players want Warzone’s matchmaking, and Warzone fans want Halo: Infinite’s Battle Pass system.

Now, some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games might be planning to add a feature from Warzone to Fortnite, as the game will reportedly get a sliding movement mechanic soon.

These leaks came from notable data miner HYPEX, who claims that the Fortnite developers are working on a new movement type in the game. This will come with a few benefits for players.

“It will increase your FOV by 15 when you’re sliding and it will make your camera shake, with a cooldown of 2 seconds,” HYPEX tweeted. “I don’t know the release date or if it’s gonna be an item!”

This sliding movement has been a staple of both Apex Legends and Warzone, so it might provide to be an exciting addition to Fortnite.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a leak, and you should take this information with a grain of salt until Epic Games confirms this. If it’s true, then this might be an exciting change.

The developers could introduce a cooldown timer so that players don’t abuse this mechanic in combat. If it arrives in the game soon, then we will probably see some big changes in player tactics.

We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this. For more Fortnite, check out all the Bounty Board Locations in Season 8, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
