And that’s where the nearly 13,000 player-strong Distant Worlds 2 fleet is situated. At the center of Elite’s simulation of the Milky Way is a supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A*. From the community goal:The organisers of the Distant Worlds II expedition have requested materials for two construction projects in the Galactic Centre. The

Anthem: 3 things to know about the big day-one patch

We’ve compiled a list of the must-know changes for this day-one patch. This can become a problem in a story-focused game like Anthem, where mission dialogue plays regardless of everyone’s load state. The patch notes say BioWare “improved loading times.” While vague, any improvement is better than the state it’s in now. Most of this patch comprises bug fixes, some of which we’ve experienced firsthand in our time with the game. This issue, along with several others, is being fixed with the day-one

Elite’s Distant Worlds 2 expedition: A dramatic rescue in the Empyrean Straits

Players are just over one month into Elite: Dangerous’ Distant Worlds 2 expedition, an 18-week test of endurance ferrying more than 13,000 players to the far side of the Milky Way Galaxy. There’s no better example than the dramatic rescue of Commander Proigr3 that took place over the weekend. Once on the outside, they discovered that they only had minutes of emergency oxygen left on hand. At one moment, Proigr3 had less than two minutes of emergency oxygen left. The Distant Worlds 2 fleet is rig

Fortnite: Where to Find Expedition Outposts

In addition to the LTM, the free-to-play title now has made its weekly challenges live for Season 7 Week 10, with one of the tasks being to visit four Expedition Outposts within a single match. Since Fortnite Battle Royale’s map is pretty large and contains a wide range of different locations, knowing exactly where to go to find Expedition Outposts to tick this challenge off the list might prove to be difficult for some. Nevertheless, the studio has provided a lot of mobility options for players

Visit Expedition Outposts in a single match – Fortnite challenge guide

One of Fortnite’s more difficult week 10 challenges asks players to visit four Expedition Outposts in one game. The good news is you can see them from pretty far away. Most of these outposts have a fairly good chance of spawning a plane at the beginning of each game. Your best bet for this Fortnite challenge is to keep landing at outposts in games until you get one with a plane, then use that plane to fly to three more. Either way, just keep at it and eventually you’ll nab all four.

Elite’s Distant Worlds 2 expedition proves the game is wildly unbalanced, and that’s OK

Suspension of disbeliefThere’s no better example than the ongoing Distant Worlds 2 expedition. None of the Distant Worlds 2 organizers were railing against board flipping inside the private Discord server. So that’s why Distant Worlds 2 organizers have created a safe haven inside a collection of private groups. They claim to have shot down more than 1,200 participants in the Distant Worlds 2 expedition. The original Distant Worlds expedition had only a little more than 1,100 participants.

Elite’s Distant Worlds 2 travelogue: a week filled with wonder and wreckage

In order to approach the facility safely I had to steer around the black hole that lingers in orbit just three light seconds away. From there I sailed my ship, the Evelynne Christine, to within 350,000 kilometers of another massive black hole called Thor’s Eye. In Elite, getting that close to a black hole isn’t terribly dangerous, but the closer you get the harder it is to keep your bearings. The colossal forces at work inside the black hole actually distorted the bright light from millions of d

Over 10K Elite Dangerous pilots embarked on Distant Worlds 2, though a few faceplanted into a 3.3G planet

Distant Worlds 2 is Elite: Dangerous' second organized journey across the Milky Way to the remote Beagle Point, and it's the space sim's largest group expedition yet. Last weekend, over 10,000 players launched from Pallaeni as the expedition kicked off, a number confirmed by Frontier CEO David Braben. One consequence of gathering so many players in each instance was an invasion of NPC ships. In memory of The View's multiple casualties, Commander Flimsie offered a poem on Reddit:There once was a
