Fortnite fans know that Deadpool is now merrily a part of the game for Chapter 2, Season 2. However, to be able to unlock the Deadpool skin, players need to complete a series of challenges each week with those challenges handed out by the foul-mouthed superhero himself, or at least by his computer. The first challenge this week is finding a letter that Deadpool wrote to Epic Games. The letter can be found in Deadpool's secret lair, which can be accessed from the battle pass screen. When on the battle pass screen, the characters are sitting around in what appears to be an evil super hero or villain hideout from a James Bond movie. Near the staircase to the right is a duct with a fan in it that... Read more...
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 just kicked off today, which means that there is fresh set of challenges to partake in. In order to get the most of your Battle Pass, you'll want to land at each of the following locations: Apres Ski, Mount Kay, and Lokie's Lighthouse. First let's discuss Apres Ski. It's a ski lodge that would be the perfect place to stop if you've got ants in your pants, or simply want to hang out and partake in the 24-7 dance party taking place inside. It's located roughly southwest of Misty Meadows in the southern portion of the map. The second location is Mount Kay, which should be familiar to you from previous Chapter 2 challenges. It is located east of Misty Meadows, and... Read more...
Fortnite fans who have been waiting in anticipation for Season 2, Chapter 2, to launch should be excited as today is the day. A new trailer for Chapter 2 has been published, giving us a look at what the season will bring, including the man with the gold hands. The trailer for the season essentially shows characters who are turning into agents to answer the call of the man with the gold hands. One interesting thing of note is at about 47 seconds in the trailer when the cat-like creature covered in leaves moves away from the tree; you get a quick glimpse of Deadpool carved into the tree along with an interesting circle with a number "7" inside it and three stick figures along with four question...

The Epic Games Store wants gamers to come to its store and get familiar with the service that they buy more games in the future. In its latest bid to lure the gamers to its store, the store is offering free games (with no installation expiration), and this month two more free games have been added. Previously announced free to play games for February included Kingdom Come Deliverance and Aztez. Both of those promotions end on February 20. At that point, two more free games kick-off for players to enjoy. The new free games include Faeria and Assassin's Creed Syndicate. Both games will be free to download for most of the last week of the month, running February 20 to 27. The game store has multiple... Read more...
Epic Games has been teasing fans about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 set to kick off this week on February 20. Ahead of the official launch, many fans are wondering what exactly the new season will bring. Rumors have suggested that the theme for Season 2 will have something to do with gold and possibly King Midas, who turned everything he touched to gold. The new advertisements feed into that speculation. The advertisements have turned up on large outdoor displays in Brazil, Japan, and France and play a short animation. Some ads have a phone number attached; but what they all have in common is a gold handprint and gold bars that redact some of the text in the ads. Naturally, fans of Fortnite called... Read more...
It looks as though Fortnite is about to get some more DC character lovin' in the form of a badass Harley Quinn skin. It should come as no surprise that Harley Quinn would be making an appearance given Epic Games' penchant for including superhero crossovers and the fact that the film Birds of Prey is soon to theaters this week. In addition to her iconic outfits, gamers can also choose to equip her with a baseball bat or a mallet instead of the standard pickaxe. All of this info comes from famed Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi who gleaned the data from game files. It's highly likely that the new Harley Quinn skin will arrive tomorrow, February 6th. Judging by the challenges that have been... Read more...
Fortnite fans know that Season 2 Chapter 1 is drawing to a close, and to keep players entertained, Epic Games has unveiled some new challenges this week. The challenges are part of the Cameo Vs. Chic mission set and the first of the missions is catching something with a fishing rod at different locations around the map. And of course, Fortnite map locations where players have to catch their items, ironically enough, are where there are "No Fishing" signs. The hardest part of this mission, like most missions requiring players to perform specific actions in specific locations, is finding the locations. The map attached below shows the location of the "No Fishing" signs for players to go and... Read more...

When Epic Games launched Fortnite, the game took the world by storm and has remained one of the most popular video games available. Fortnite is notable because it is a free-to-play title with players paying for skins and other items in the game. Despite the game itself costing nothing, Fortnite was the top-earning game of the year. This achievement came despite its revenue dropping 25% compared to the past year. Fortnite raked in $1.8 billion in 2019, which was a decline compared to the $2.4 billion the game earned in 2018. While Fortnite's revenue declined for the year, digital games revenue did grow overall in 2019, reaching $109.4 billion, a gain of 3% year-over-year. The data comes... Read more...
If your New Year's resolution was to spend less money on video games, we have bad news. While the holiday sales have mostly come to an end, Epic Games is still offering discounts on several titles through the Epic Games Store during its Encore Week Sale, which kicked off on January 1 and runs through January 7 (11:00 am EST / 8:00 am PST). As an added bonus, you can still use any coupons you might have left over from the Holiday Sale.

If you are able to take advantage of that coupon, you could score Red Dead Redemption 2 for just $37.99, its lowest price ever. I verified that this still... Read more...
Look, anyone who plays Fortnite who says they don't want a Polar Renegade Spray is lying. I mean, just look at it (show above)! Okay, maybe not everyone cares about earning the uncommon spray, which is from the Bear Brigade set. But for those who do, completing a Winterfest challenge is the key (which starts with your stocking). More on that in a moment. First, let's start with Day 12 challenge, which involves destroying Snowflake Decorations around the map. There are several that are scattered across the map, and it can take a bit of time hunting them down. However, you only need to destroy three of them, so that makes things a little easier. These can be found at POIs on the map, though the... Read more...
Rockstar Games did PC gamers a solid last month by porting over Red Dead Redemption 2, which had been sitting pretty on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles for over a year. It's even prettier on the PC with the coats of polish the developer added. Though it's only been available on PC a short while, it's already deeply discounted. As other digital distribution platforms have done, Epic Games has kicked off its "Holiday Sale 2019" with discounts on a bunch of games. Red Dead Redemption 2 stands out because it's a new title (to PC), and is marked down 20 percent to $47.99. However, it gets even better—Epic Games is offering a $10 off coupon on your first purchase during the Holiday Sale.... Read more...
Epic Games is celebrating Christmas for Fortnite fans with a new event that allows players to open up to 14 gifts. The gifts are all free of charge, and everyone can get them.
