Fortnite Driftboards look like boost-powered hoverboards and they’re coming Tuesday

Fortnite Driftboards look like they'll be a somewhat, if not totally, tubular new vehicle when Fortnite 7.10 rolls out on Tuesday. So it can boost, and it can only carry one player at a time - sensible, because that board would get pretty crowded otherwise. As if the term "hoverboard" didn't justify itself in any context, this teaser from back before season 7 arrived makes it look like there's some floaty zooming going on. Plus, Fortnite: Save the World has had hoverboards of its own for a while

Fallout 76 update points to incoming Lunchboxes, and yes, they could be loot boxes

Code spotted in the most recent Fallout 76 update has players dreading the untimely specter of loot boxes. To be clear: all of the information for potential Fallout 76 Lunchboxes was gleaned from fans datamining official Fallout 76 materials, rather than Bethesda making an announcement itself, so everything is subject to change. It seems like terrible timing for loot boxes to come to Fallout 76. And 2018 has been an unkind year to the concept of loot boxes as a whole, with some countries beginni

Fortnite’s newly vaulted Infinity Blade is still appearing in some matches

The Infinity Blade added in Fortnite 's wintry update was hideously overpowered. That was last week - but as some players have discovered, the Infinity Blade is still spawning in Fortnite, only rarely. Reddit user itslabs recently posted a curious clip of Twitch streamer Quemzi , who encountered a player wielding an Infinity Blade after it was vaulted. The Infinity Blade shouldn't be appearing at all, and it certainly shouldn't be shirking off its nerf, so players suspected this is the work of a

Fortnite’s newest vehicle and patch have been delayed

Just hours after teasing the existence of Fortnite’s newest, probably snowboard-like vehicle, Epic Games has announced that the vehicle, called the Driftboard, won’t be released with the game’s upcoming patch. The season 7 update came and went with no mention of the new vehicle. That wasn’t the end of the bad news for the patch, however. Just a half hour later, in a new tweet, Epic announced that it had found a larger issue that would delay the release of the patch altogether. Also unclear is wh

Treyarch explains why Black Ops 4 updates on PC take longer than consoles

Activision has kicked off the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout holiday event, and a "Winter Calling" calling event in Zombies, which unfortunately—but like previous Black Ops 4 newness—are only available on the PlayStation 4 to start. There's still a reason for those of us on Team PC to pay attention, however, as the announcement posted to Reddit also digs into why the PC release schedule for updates will sometimes lag behind consoles. Even one change specific to the PC version can introduce n
