We’ve known for months that GTA V is getting a PS5 and Xbox Series X re-release, but when exactly is it going to be available to buy? This is everything we know about GTA 5 on next-gen.

Despite being officially announced at Sony’s Future of Gaming event way back in June, there hasn’t been any official word on when the updated version of Rockstar‘s GTA 5 is expected to drop.

Information has been scarce on the game so far, but in relation to some of the game’s biggest questions: release date, GTA Online, DLC, and data carrying over, here’s what information we have to answer those questions.

The reveal of GTA 5 on next-gen wasn’t quite the GTA 6 announcement that people were hoping for back in June, but GTA V’s legacy is unparalleled.

Given that it’s the most profitable piece of entertainment created – raking in over $6 billion – you can see why Rockstar wants to preserve it for as long as possible.

So when is it coming out then?

Well after the GTA 5 PS5 & Xbox Series X announcement, there was a post on the official Rockstar news blog detailing this.

“As recently revealed at Sony’s PlayStation 5 digital event, the adventures of Michael, Franklin, and Trevor are coming to a new generation of consoles, including PlayStation 5, in the second half of 2021.”

Given that Rockstar seems to be steadfast in their approach to it, we can probably expect this to be true and accurate still. Furthermore, GTA Online has obviously become such a huge component of GTA that it’s even superseded the base game itself due to its outrageous popularity.

Will my GTA Online data carry over?

Lots of players have invested lots of real cash to fund their GTA Online antics such as buying luxury cars and properties, but will they get to continue this on next-gen?

Early leaks have suggested that players WILL be able to carry over their data and progress from GTA 5 on the PS4 and Xbox One. But given that there’s an opportunity for Rockstar to make more money, we’ll see if this remains the case.

The blog post also comments on the arrival of GTA Online too.

“There will also be a new standalone version of GTA Online coming in the second half of 2021, which will be available for free exclusively for PlayStation 5 players during the first three months.”

So we can pretty much expect that GTA Online will drop at near-enough the same time as the release of the base game.

This is all we know about the GTA V re-release so far, when we do get more concrete information about it we’ll update you.

The Terminator could be heading to Fortnite Season 5

A new portal has opened up with clear suggestions that The Terminator is the next iconic name to head to Epic Game’s Fortnite Season 5.

The list of famous names and figures continues in Fortnite Season 5 as The Terminator appears to be the next star attraction for Epic Games.

Fortnite Season 5 has become inundated with a tremendous amount of star power in recent weeks. A litany of gaming and Hollywood icons such as Kratos, Master Chief, Predator, and The Mandalorian are just some of the game’s newest characters.

The season of the Bounty Hunter isn’t stopping here though as a new portal is hinting at another blockbuster name. The infamous Terminator – made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger – seems set to make an impact.

Fortnite Season 5 The Terminator

It was a big deal when The Predator recently turned up in the battle royale game and provided players with access to his Cloak Device.

Now, having a world-renowned Terminator set foot on the shores of Fortnite’s map feels gigantic.

The new video reveals a portal and shows a glimpse of the environment inside. Thanks to the cunning nature of the internet, people were able to quickly decipher the location.

The portal shows an inside shot of one of the buildings from the original Terminator film. Hypex II’s YouTube channel has posted the video to their channel and it’s available for those wanting to see it for themselves.

We can only speculate as to which version of The Terminator we will see. It could be Arnie’s evil Terminator, Robert Patrick’s T-1000, or even Kristanna Loken’s female Terminator.

In terms of cool weapons and back-bling, we can probably expect to see the famous Endoskeleton skull on our back and some other cool stuff from the films.

With the imminent arrival of The Terminator, it leaves us with a few questions. Who else are we going to see in Fortnite Season 5? We already know that Lara Croft could be coming to Fortnite as well.

Will Epic extend this season to allow for more recognizable names to appear? Only time will tell.

How to find and kill Predator in Fortnite Season 5

You can battle The Predator after the latest Fortnite update, and defeating him will grant you the Predator skin.

The Predator in Fortnite Season 5

The Predator is the latest enemy added to Fortnite Season 5, and you can battle him to unlock a brand new skin. This boss fight will be extremely difficult, so here’s the best way to get it done quickly.

Epic Games dropped the v15.21 update on Wednesday, January 20, and this brought some brand new content to Fortnite Season 5. This includes The Predator, who is available as a Boss character for you to battle.

Defeating him is one of the Jungle Hunter Quests in the Battle Pass, and completing that will unlock the Predator skin. Killing this alien hunter is no easy task since he’s a powerful foe, so here are some tips to keep in mind.

Where to find Predator in Fortnite Season 5

If you want to challenge The Predator then you’ll have to visit Stealthy Stronghold, which is located on the north part of the map. Once you’re there, you should head towards the forest on the left-hand side of the POI.

Unfortunately, the hunter doesn’t remain in the same place, so you’ll have to explore the forest a bit before you come across him. The best spot to look at is the location of his crashed ship, which we’ve marked on the map below.

If you’ve seen the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, then you’ll know why The Predator is so difficult to defeat. He comes with unmatched agility that lets him dart between the trees and surroundings quickly.

You’ll also face some difficulties due to the enemy’s Cloaking Device that allows him to completely camouflage himself. This means that you’ll have an even harder time tracking his movements until he appears right next to you.

Another obstacle comes in the form of the players that you’ll be competing against to complete this quest and unlock the skin. However, you can use this to your advantage by letting them do half of the work for you.

Here’s the best way to defeat The Predator in Fortnite:

  1. Jump from the Battle Bus and land in Stealthy Stronghold.
  2. Collect the best weapons you can find.
  3. Head to the Predator’s location on the left-hand side of the POI.
  4. Watch the other players damage the alien from a distance.
  5. Once he’s been weakened, kill him with close-range and medium-distance weapons.

That sums up everything you need to do in order to defeat The Predator. Just hang back, and watch the other players chip away at his health from a distance until your opportunity opens up to land the final blows.

You can make things even easier on yourself by getting help from your friends, so drop into Stealthy Stronghold as part of a Trio or Squad. Once the enemy has been dealt with, you can loot the Cloaking Device from his body.

In addition to the cloak, you will also unlock The Predator skin that you’ll need to wear to tackle the other Jungle Hunter Quests. It looks extremely cool, and you’d better get your hands on it as soon as you can.

How to go invisible with Fortnite’s Predator Cloak Device

Hide from your opponents with Predator’s Cloak Device and become invisible. Learn how to use and what it does in Fortnite Season 5.

The legendary extra-terrestrial species Predator has arrived in Fortnite Season 5. He’s not come alone though as he’s brought with him a Cloak Device that players can use for invisibility.

Fortnite has offered varying degrees of invisibility in its game before. Examples include the bush that players could equip, outfits that blended in with the environment, and most recently salt that you could burrow around in underground.

However, these faux attempts at full concealment are nothing compared to Predator’s new Cloak Device. If players are able to obtain it, then they have a bonafide method of becoming practically see-through.

For a piece of sophisticated technology from a foreign part of the universe, Predator’s alien technology is surprisingly accessible to all.

Once you have your hands on the Cloak Device, all you need to do is simply activate the item, and you’ll instantly turn invisible. It should be noted that your outline can still be faintly seen. But from a distance, you are a mere blur to the naked eye.

The item possess the following stats:

  • Cooldown: 30 seconds
  • Duration: 30 seconds
  • Exit Duration: 1 second
  • Expire Alert: last 5 seconds
  • NPC can go transparent too for 15 sec & 30 sec cooldown

Here’s the device in action thanks to HYPEX.

If you draw a weapon then your cloaking phase will be interrupted immediately. The Cloak is designed to allow you to escape from an enemy or provide a brief respite.

Predator’s Cloak Device seems to provide a bit more privacy than the Shadow Stones did – a previous item in Fortnite that offered some invisibility. However, they proved to be very buggy and never maintained a constant spot in Fortnite due to this.

There is plenty more Predator content to come and we’ve been able to see all the leaked Predator cosmetics that are scheduled for Fortnite.

Stay tuned for more information on Predator and future characters being added to Season 5.
