What’s New with Fortnite Season 5?

Confirmed, Discoveries, and Rumors

Epic Games announced that Season 5 of the massively popular Fortnite: Battle Royale will begin Thursday, July 12. Fortnite Season 5 will be available immediately after Season 4 ends and Epic finishes with their scheduled server maintenance.

Gamers are lining up for their chance to purchase the Season 5 Battle Pass. Epic hasn’t confirmed exactly what skins or other items players can expect from the newest Battle Pass or how much it will cost. With no new skins shown off, there is an image of a new mask and a battleaxe in Epic Games teaser. It seems as though this is a partial look at some of the new Season 5 skins to come.

All previous Battle Passes cost 950 V-Bucks and it is assumed that Season 5 will be the same. Fortnite’s in-game currency can either be bought with real money, earned when they reach certain reward tiers or in the paid “Save the World” mode. 1000 V-Bucks currently costs $9.99.

Epic Games Keeps Some Secrets

The developer hasn’t been releasing a pool of details about Fortnite Season 5 but recent in-game events has imaginations running wild. A mysterious rocket in the Evil Lair took off into the sky on June 30th which caused a giant rift to open in the sky. Cracks can be seen in the bubble-like storm above all the chaos happening on the island below. Since this time, more mysterious rifts began opening up all over the map. Lonely Lodge, Retail Row, Tomato Town and more all are now home to these interesting new additions.

Along with the in-game developments that are offering hints about the content coming to Fortnite Season 5, people are starting to come across hints in the real-world. A desert in California is now home to the Durr Burger. There were also warning signs that read “warning: you are too close to the anomaly” that appeared around the Durr Burger. Visitors also discovered a card with a phone number on it and when dialed, it played audio of an object disappearing through a rift according to PC Gamer and then was changed to coordinates, Forbes cited.

That’s not the only Fortnite imagery to appear IRL. People are stumbling across Fortnite’s loot llamas all around Europe. So far, there have been seven discovered in total. Paris, Cologne, Cennes, Warsaw, Barcelona and two in London are all home to this lovable llama. That’s a total of eight mysterious real-world Fortnite objects to appear outside of the game. What this all means is still unconfirmed. It could be nothing more than a clever (and successful) marketing stunt or a hint about what’s to come in Season 5. Gamers will need to wait until July 12th to see for themselves. 

Goodbye Playground Mode

As with the previous limited-time modes in Fortnite, this sandbox-style game option isn’t sticking around. Epic announced that Playground Mode is scheduled to be removed the same day Season 5 begins, July 12th. However, there is some good news for fans of this unique building mode. The developer confirmed that they listened to player feedback, took note of improvements that can be made, and plans on bringing it back to the game, eventually. There is no word yet on when gamers might be able to jump back in and build until their heart’s content.

Fortnite Season 5 New Map Expected

One of the biggest questions surrounding Fortnite Season 5. There is no official statement or announcement from Epic Games but Express.co.uk is claiming dataminers uncovered the new map. The video below is from the YouTube Channel, DieBuddies Zocken, an Austrian gamer that seems as though he is playing on a dramatically different Fortnite map.

It’s no secret the Fortnite map has undergone some impressive changes since the game was released. Even with speculation mounting, the video above still remains unconfirmed.

Everyone at Gigamax Games hasn’t been able to pull themselves away from Fortnite, like most of the world. Be sure to stick around for the release of Fortnite Season 5 as the Gigamax crew will be releasing gameplay and exploring what Epic has planned for Fortnite fans with this latest update.

We Happy Few Will Release In Australia

We Happy Few Will Release In Australia

Australia has incredibly strict censorship laws, especially when it comes to video games. We Happy Few was the most recent video game to face the Australian Classification Board (ACB). This game was at risk of becoming unavailable to Australian audiences when it’s released on August 10th, 2018. 

We Happy Few, we happy few banned, we happy few australia, australia video game industry, video game industry, video game news, latest gaming news, gaming news

The ACB released a statement last week announcing that they would reconsider their initial ruling of completely banning the game. News broke yesterday (7/3/18) that We Happy Few would receive an R18+ rating instead of being completely banned from the country. This all comes after their decision in May where the ACB said the game incentivized drug use. A made-up drug called “Joy” is a primary plot point in the game and that was considered to cross a line.

“A three-member panel of the Classification Review Board has unanimously determined that the computer game We Happy Few is classified R18+ (Restricted) with the consumer advice Fantasy violence and interactive drug use,” read the official statement from the Classification Review Board. 

History of Australia’s Video Game Censorship

Banning video games in Australia was a much more common occurrence before 2011. Before then, Australia could only rate video games up to MA15+ (similar to T in the United States). R18+ was reserved only for film, and video games with similar content would be completely banned from the country as the appropriate classification wasn’t available. In July and August of 2011, the Australian Attorneys-General finally opened up the R18+ rating for video games as well.

Some Games Banned In Australia Over The Past 10 Years

  • Dark Sector
  • Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
  • MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death
  • NecroVisioN
  • Omega Labyrinth Z
  • Risen
  • Saints Row IV
  • State of Decay
  • Shellshock 2: Blood Trails
  • Silent Hill: Homecoming
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth
  • Syndicate
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni
  • GTA 5

A Close Call for We Happy Few

We Happy Few almost made it on this list above before the ACB came to their senses and awarded this video game an R18+ rating. Australia takes its censorship extremely seriously. There have been many games like the massively popular Left 4 Dead 2 that were initially banned from the country, but only after a highly edited version of the original game was it made available. 

We Happy Few, we happy few banned, we happy few australia, australia video game industry, video game industry, video game news, latest gaming news, gaming news

Since the R18+ rating began covering video games, Australian audiences have been granted access to some of the most popular titles on the global market. This was arguably the most important development in the Australian video game industry in the past 10 years. Especially now, as video games become more realistic, there’s no telling which hits would have never made it to the massive island country. 

Gigamax Games played the alpha of We Happy Few before the substantial updates the game received over the past year. This interesting universe was a colorful world filled with mystery and imagination. Gamers in Australia would have missed out on a potentially incredible adventure if the R18+ rating still didn’t cover video games.

Celebrating 40 years of Space Invaders with Gigamax

Disclaimer: Gigamax Games has no relationship with Taito’s Space Invaders.

Taito’s Space Invaders, the classic arcade game just celebrated its 40th birthday. Releasing in 1978, it influenced countless games and the gaming industry in general since its inception. This was the first game that created its very own world rather than simulating an environment from the real world. It also introduced the concept of a high score and multiple lives.

Celebrating 40 Years of Space Invaders

Space Invaders quickly became the most popular game in arcades worldwide after its global release. 40 years later, it’s hard to find a gamer that hasn’t played or at least heard of the game. A staple of arcade gaming, any fan of this classic title might want to take a trip to Japan to celebrate.

The publisher is celebrating this momentous occasion in an over the top way. Hosting a limited time event in Japan, Taito created a massive version of the game where up to ten players can work together to fend off the alien threat. Named, Prepare…for Space Invaders Gigamax!, this celebration caught the attention of Gigamax Games for a couple of reasons.

Bigger, Brighter, Gigamax

Huge fans of the game, the Gigamax Games crew was shocked to hear this limited time event was actually named, “Prepare… for Space Invaders Gigamax”. If anyone forgot, the name of this website is GigamaxGames.com.

The event is a limited edition attraction, located southwest of Tokyo at the Laguna Ten Bosch resort in Gamagori, Japan. Each game costs players around $4.50 USD or 500 yen. The massive display will only be available to try through July so if anyone wants to give it a try, the time to book a trip to Japan is now. It is uncertain what the future holds for Space Invaders Gigamax but with any luck, this celebration won’t be the last time gamers see Gigamax on the big screen.

For more information on this special event, an official website is available in Japanese. Google Translate will help but doesn’t translate the pictures.

Blizzard Shares New World of Warcraft Classic Details

Brand New Info on World of Warcraft Classic

Although a release date has not been announced, Blizzard confirmed it is remaking the vanilla version of World of Warcraft. As time passes, it becomes increasingly evident that the development team behind World of Warcraft Classic is very passionate about the long-awaited project. In a recent “Dev Watercooler” blog post, Blizzard unveiled new details about their experience prototyping the game. They also went on to reassure fans that they would do the original version of the WoW justice.

“The process of restoring the classic game is not straightforward, and it’s important to us to take the time and effort to get it right–this includes poring over numerous game versions, data, and code; meticulously scrutinizing all the changes we’ve made over the years,” Blizzard’s dev team wrote.

“All the work we’re doing will ultimately allow us to recreate an authentic classic experience on a platform that is much more optimized and stable, helping us avoid latency and stability issues. Additional improvements will include modern anti-cheat/botting detection, customer service and Battle.net integration, and similar conveniences that do not affect the core gameplay experience.” (https://bit.ly/2t2S726)

Back To Where It All Began

World of Warcraft Classic Rebuild

Blizzard detailed that the initial World of Warcraft Classic prototype is a rebuild of Patch 1.12: Drums of War using various archives and source code. Unfortunately for the team, this revealed some pretty big problems including game crashes, issues with modern video cards, incompatibility with Blizzard’s latest login system, and a host of other concerns. Using this initial prototype the development team was able to create another test version using the game’s modern code and all the infrastructure enhancements it has received over the years. This build of the 1.12 patch is compatible with the latest technology available for PC’s and Blizzard’s current systems.

World of Warcraft Classic was initially announced at Blizzcon 2017 with a surprise trailer that delighted fans that have been requesting it for years. Hopefully, dedicated WoW players won’t have to wait long to play the experience that started their journey through Azeroth. Be sure to check back with GigamaxGames.com for more information on World of Warcraft Classic when it becomes available!

Regice, the ice version of the three legendary titans from the third generation of Pokemon games, can now be found at gyms around the world in the form of a raid battle.

As usual, dedicated players will have to team up with other trainers and take on Regice before they get a chance to capture it. It is important to remember when going into the battle that ice-type Pokemon are weak against fire, rock, steel, and fighting types. Although, despite the monsters many weaknesses it has a particularly high defense stat, adding to the formidability of the latest Legendary opponent.

Two More Legendary Titans

The other two Legendary Titans, Regirock and Registeel, are expected to appear on Pokemon Go soon. Niantic has yet to confirm when fans can face the next two beasts but they’ll follow the introduction of Regice late this summer.

Regice arrives on the heels of Pokemon Go’s latest in-game event, the Water Festival. Part of this event included trainers having the chance to catch another generation 3 Legendary, Kyogre, which returned to raid battles for a limited time. While Kyogre may no longer be available, trainers still have the opportunity to complete the latest set of Field Research Quests, which will lead to another chance to take on the Legendary bird Articuno.

Alongside the recently announced Legendaries, Niantic began rolling out the recently announced friends and trading features for Pokemon Go. Although, as of now, only players that have reached between levels 33 and 40 are able to take advantage of the long-awaited features. Niantic claims that these systems will eventually make their way to other players, but hasn’t given a specific timeframe.

Pokemon Go continues to evolve and the Gigamax Games crew will continue watching out the mobile game progresses. Stop by again soon to keep up with the latest video game news and announcements.

Hosting a Nintendo Direct on June 12th, they stunned the gaming community with some massive gaming news.

These top 5 biggest announcements from the Nintendo Direct were both a cause of excitement and utter disbelief. After reviewing some of the best announcements from Nintendo’s press conference, be sure to jump to the bottom of the page for the even more Nintendo news from E3 2018.

Following speculation and leaks, Epic Games confirmed their monstrous smash hit, Fortnite, will immediately be available on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo loves their last-minute announcements and Fortnite is no exception. Unfortunately, there was no mention of Nintendo-exclusive skins or content but it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine a Link or Mario skin making it to the Nintendo version. Fortnite is a fantastic shooter for the hybrid console and having the option to go mobile is a perfect fit for this specific Battle Royale game. As of now, there is no cross-play with PS4 Fortnite players and PS4 gamers can’t even transfer over their progress.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Character Roster – Ridley Request Granted

The wait is finally over and the latest Super Smash Bros. announcement was well worth it. Dubbed, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the game will include all the characters from the series’ history. That’s over 60 fighters people will have the chance to play. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an entirely new game, not a port. They completely redesigned all the characters, even the classics like Metal Gear Solid’s Snake, to improve their look and the way they play. The Nintendo Direct even let fans know the highly requested, Ridley from Metroid, whom fans have been asking Nintendo to include for over a decade will make it to the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The game will be available on December 7th of this year.

Super Mario Party

This fall, Nintendo fans will be able to play a brand new Mario Party on the Switch. Called, Super Mario Party, the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct presentation offered some impressive gameplay and additional details. Super Mario Party invites Switch players to get together with other Switch owners to play a kind of local multiplayer. This modern version of a LAN party gave Super Mario Party the ability to feature minigames that encourage secret collaboration between players, working together to take down the competition, unbeknownst to the other individuals using their own Switch console.  The world can expect to dive right into the newest addition to the Mario Party family on October 5th, 2018. 

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC

Nintendo’s E3 2018 press conference revealed that the latest Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC will work off of a pair of previous updates the game received in March. Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country will be available to season pass holders late this summer. Gamers will have a chance to pick up a stand-alone retail package of the new storyline on September 21st. Season pass holders will be able to explore this legendary new adventure as early as September 14th.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date Finally Set

Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date Announced 

After over a decade of anticipation, Square Enix finally set a release date for the long-awaited game, Kingdom Hearts 3. This title will mark the conclusion to the main trilogy that follows the adventures of Sora, Donald, and Goofy through Disney themed worlds with a splash of Final Fantasy thrown in for good measure.

The third game has big plans to expand the scope of the universe and prove that they still have what it takes to blend eastern and western characters. Kingdom Hearts 3 will release on both the Xbox One and PS4 on January 29th, 2019. Immediately following the announcement, Square Enix revealed a new trailer for the game during Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

The World is Stunned

Many were shocked at the sudden nature of this announcement, with the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter account revealing the release date with no build up or celebration on the first day of E3 2018. While fans of the series are aware that Kingdom Hearts 3 has been in development for years, series creator Tetsuya Nomura said at last year’s D23 event that the game’s release date was planned for 2018. During a fan event for the game in May, he had announced that a final release date for the game would be made public very soon.

Fans can still expect to visit Disney themed worlds throughout their journey to save the universe from being consumed by darkness. Although, this time around Pixar is making their debut in the beloved series. As of now, Square Enix confirmed that Frozen, Tangled, Big Hero Six, Hercules, Toy Story, and Monsters Inc. levels are all present in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Keep Those Fingers Crossed

Hopefully, this will actually be the final release date for the game. With the amount of gameplay and details the developer has revealed, people have high hopes it will happy. Everyone at Gigamax Games is big fans of the Kingdom Hearts series and plenty of coverage for the game is on its way as the release date draws closer.
