Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 will last three months

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 will last three months

After Chapter 2 came to an explosive conclusion last night, Fortnite Chapter 3 is about to begin at last – and it’s already been leaked exactly how long the first new season will last and roughly when players can expect Season 2, which is a little over three months from now in March 2022.

Fortnite Chapter 2’s ‘The End’ event took place on December 4 and it brought with it a whole new map and status quo for Epic’s battle royale. After her forces invaded the island the Cube Queen has seemingly been defeated, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – who was finally unmasked as Fortnite’s The Foundation character – dropped the entire island on her head.

Chapter 3 is now ready to begin today – a little earlier than expected – and with the new Battle Pass already leaked and ready to bring in such delights as Spider-Man in a big event, players will want to know exactly how long they’ll have to earn Marvel’s web-slinging hero and all the rest.

Fortnite Updates: What’s Different with Chapter 3 and the Arrival of Spider-Man


For the second time, the inhabitants of Fortnite have met their collective end with the close of Chapter 2, Season 8. In its wake comes Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 – an updated Battle Royale experience with new gameplay mechanics, an altered island map, and a Battle Pass featuring Spider-Man.

Fortnite Update: Chapter 3, Season 1 Map Changes

Recent events in Fortnite have ushered in sweeping changes to its island map. Fans can not only expect to see altered versions of familiar places, but there will be new locations as well, including Spider-Man/Peter Parker’s own Daily Bugle.

Marvel’s iconic newspaper facility won’t be the only new area worth exploring, as The Sanctuary, The Seven’s secret base of operations, has been revealed as well.

Fortnite: New Gameplay Mechanics

Beyond new characters and map changes, Fortnite Chapter 3 adds new traversal mechanics. These include the ability to slide about in hopes of evading enemy fire or the new swinging mechanic that allows you to mimic Spidey’s movements.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 also introduces the biggest game-changing feature since Reboot Vans in Camps. These special locations will allow you and your squadmates to store items to be used in later matches. Not only that, it’ll also allow you heal up after taking damage.

Fans can expect new items and weapons scattered all over the island. If utilized well (and with a bit luck) they’ll be able to get multiple Victory Royales and potentially earn the new Victory Crown. This digital accolade will certainly encourage competitive play.

Fortnite: Chapter 3, Season 1 Battle Pass

It wouldn’t be a new season of Fortnite without a brand-new Battle Pass. This latest pass will offer a lot of the same – new skins, emotes, weapon wraps, etc. It also features the amazing Spider-Man. While those things are worth getting excited for, it’s Epic Games allowing players to continue earning Battle Pass XP outside of Battle Royale that’s really interesting.

Done by using the Accolade Device, Fortnite Creative Mode players can build XP gain into their created experiences. They won’t be able to set the amount, so it won't be easy for players to blast through all 100 levels. Instead, they can set XP award weight based on the number Accolade Devices they have and how frequent players are awarded.

Essentially, players won’t be able to manually type in how much XP they want their friends to earn. All of the math is done in the background in a way that keeps things balanced; players will be able to influence things based on the complexity of their created accolades but won’t be able to give out free XP.

And that’s it for Fortnite’s latest update. Be sure to check back here for more Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 patch notes! Also, if you missed it or want to make sure you didn't miss a thing, read our breakdown of Fortnite Chapter 2's finale event and the introduction of The Rock as The Foundation.

Fortnite Chapter 3 release time – Season 1 starts today

Fortnite Chapter 3 release time – Season 1 starts today

Last night was the epic conclusion to Chapter 2, and now all eyes are on the Fortnite Chapter 3 release time – which may now have been revealed. ‘The End’ event ushered in a new status quo and a major guest star in the form of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and the new Season 1 start time be isn’t far off.

For anyone who didn’t play it, the big Chapter 2 confirmed the long-suspected theory that Fortnite’s masked The Foundation character – who recently resurfaced in a Batman tie-in comic – is actually Dwayne Johnson. As the Cube Queen’s army attacked, The Rock won the day by, well, dropping the entire Fortnite island on her. The new island will be the underside of the former one.

There have already been numerous leaks about Chapter 3, including the reveal that Spider-Man will play a big part in both the new season and the Battle Pass – and there will even be Gears of War characters to get, too, and maybe even a The Matrix collaboration.

Dragon Age 4: Everything we know about the next RPG in Thedas


Dragon Age 4 is going to get the gang back together at last. Eventually, anyway. The existence of the next Dragon Age was one of the most oft-teased and never quite confirmed secrets in gaming for several years before it was finally revealed.

After the ending of Dragon Age: Inquisition's final DLC made it clear the saga of Thedas was far from over, we've been expecting another Dragon Age game to follow it. BioWare spent years dodging any official confirmation that the fourth game was in the works, but now has said in no uncertain terms that it's working on the next Dragon Age game. Confirmation aside, we still know precious little about it from some teaser trailers, a behind-the-scenes video, and concept art. 

Reports have claimed that Dragon Age 4 has abandoned a focus on multiplayer elements and been retooled as an entirely singleplayer game, and BioWare has since described it as a “single-player focused experience”. That's potentially a big deal, as we'd been wondering how EA's online service game aspirations would affect BioWare's historically singleplayer series.

We still haven't actually gotten a proper look at Dragon Age 4's gameplay, or heck even a title, but BioWare has begun to sprinkle out teasers and concept art more regularly since the summer of 2020. While we keep waiting for a proper unveiling, here's everything we know about Dragon Age 4's story, possible release date, trailers, characters, and more.

What is Dragon Age 4's release date?

We don't have a release date for Dragon Age 4 yet. We do know that it's likely still quite a ways off. In August 2020, then general manager Casey Hudson described Dragon Age 4 as still in “early production”. 

Dragon Age was also referred to during EA's October 2019 earnings call. The information was brief and pretty non-committal but according to CFO Blake Jorgensen, the next Dragon Age game “probably comes after fiscal [2022],” meaning after April 2022. Jorgensen also cautions that they don't often make such predictions multiple years in advance. It's hard to say whether “fiscal '22” is an ambitious estimate or an extremely cautious one so we'll just have to wait to hear more. 

In July 2021, executive producer Christian Dailey said “Please know that the team is heads down with a lot of momentum and making great progress. We are excited to share more when the time is right.”

Here's a teaser trailer for Dragon Age 4

During The Game Awards in 2020, BioWare showed off a teaser trailer for the next Dragon Age game. Sadly, we still don't know its official title, though the trailer does at least seem to confirm one returning character: dwarven archer Varric Tethras, a party member in both Dragon Age 2 and Dragon Age: Inquisition. 

Aside from that, the trailer also confirms that, as is Dragon Age tradition, we'll have a new protagonist for the next game. Oh, and it's seriously pretty. The series seems to be getting even further away from its grimy Ferelden roots into some of the more grand and colorful magic of the world.

Dragon Age 4 won't be a live-service game like Anthem

In early 2018, Kotaku reported that Dragon Age 4 had been rebooted as a “live” game to better fit with EA's push for “games as a service” that could continue to generate revenue after initial launch sales.

However, as of 2021, Dragon Age 4 has reportedly ditched all multiplayer elements to stay a singleplayer experience. This news came shortly after BioWare announced plans to cease work on Anthem, the live-service sci-fi game that they'd been attempting to overhaul after its poor reception in 2019.

We don't know exactly what plans for Dragon Age 4's multiplayer were before this decision, but it's safe to say now that it definitely won't be an online-only game like Anthem. BioWare are now calling it a “single-player focused experience”.

Based on what the studio has historically done well, this seems like a good decision. Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda had a multiplayer mode that was actually pretty decent, but singleplayer stories remain the focal point for both series.

What is the setting of Dragon Age 4?

Tevinter—it's official. We'd been operating on this assumption for years now, given the less-than-subtle ending of Dragon Age Inquisition's final DLC, a 2019 report about the game's development, and the short story collection called Tevinter Nights from 2020. BioWare finally confirmed it in their huge studio history book “Bioware: Stories and Secrets from 25 Years of Game Development”. 

At the very end of the book, looking towards BioWare's future, a section called “Tevinter Bound a sneak peek at the follow-up to Inquisition” lets on that this is definitely the main setting for the next game. “The game, helmed by executive producer Mark Darrah, will take players to Tevinter as the events of Inquisition and Trespasser threaten to forever change Thedas.” Darrah has since left BioWare, replaced by Christian Dailey, though the rest is presumably current information. 

Tevinter has yet to appear in a Dragon Age game properly, though the country run by mages is often mentioned and we've had several party members from up north. The glimpse of Tevinter capitol Minrathous we saw in the 2020 Game Awards teaser had an almost cyberpunk feel to it with the colorful urban night-time and floating central segment.

It's possible that, like Inquisition, Dragon Age 4 will not be set just in one country but will visit other nations as well. BioWare's studio history book includes some of the same concept art that we've seen in their behind the scenes video from summer 2020. Among the small selection of artwork chosen for the page are the Necropolis in Nevarra and an Antivan Crow assassin, suggesting that we could be visiting both locations as part of the story. Oh, and the Deep Roads, too. We're probably not escaping a Dragon Age game without a visit underground.

What will Dragon Age 4's gameplay be like? 

(Image credit: Electronic Arts, BioWare)

It will certainly be an RPG, or so one would assume, but beyond that any real details about Dragon Age 4 are still very hush-hush. From Kotaku's report on the first version of Dragon Age 4, codenamed Joplin, “a large chunk of Joplin would center on heists. The developers talked about building systemic narrative mechanics, allowing the player to perform actions like persuading or extorting guards without the writers having to hand-craft every scene. The goal was to focus as much as possible on choice and consequence, with smaller areas and fewer fetch quests than Dragon Age: Inquisition.” 

Game development is a highly iterative process, especially so at BioWare, according to Kotaku's reports on both Dragon Age 4 and Anthem. Dragon Age 4 has definitely changed staff and has likely changed vision as well now that it's known internally as Morrison. It's still possible that BioWare is attempting to make a smaller, denser open world for Dragon Age 4 after player critique that Inquisition's open world felt somewhat empty. 

In a post to BioWare's blog following the teaser trailer from December 2018, Darrah wrote that “we have been building a new team around a core of Dragon Age veterans, people I've worked with on Dragon Age, Jade Empire, and some of whom I've worked with since the Baldur's Gate days.” While that may just be a way to reassure players of the quality the team will produce for Dragon Age 4, it might also mean that BioWare is looking to channel its earliest CRPG roots for its next game.

So is Dread Wolf Rises the title of Dragon Age 4?

It could be, or it might just be a statement about the plot. Whether or not the game is named after our friend Solas, he will certainly be playing a pivotal role, it seems. 

Dragon Age 4 will be a story about having no power

In the Gamescom trailer, lead writer Patrick Weekes described how Dragon Age 4's story will diverge from Inquisition. “For the game we're working on now, we want to tell the story of, 'What happens when you don't have power?' What happens when the people in charge aren't willing to address the issues?” Weekes said.

From the sound of it, BioWare is aiming for the story and its characters to feel a little less important to the world than in Inquisition (at least at first). Dragon Age games have typically followed the rise of a seemingly inconsequential hero to a position of power, though it almost sounds as if Dragon Age 4 will follow a character who never breaks into Thedas's traditional power structures.

What other teasers and trailers are out there?

Most recently, many of the Dragon Age 4 teasers we've seen have been concept art shared by executive producer Christian Dailey. You can flip through a couple of those above.

The Gamescom 2020 Opening Night Live show gave us a look at some of the early production of Dragon Age 4. The video shows off concept art, some 3D environments, a bit of voice acting production, and some gameplay prototypes. It's a bit too early to count anything seen as true Dragon Age 4 gameplay, but getting a look at the process is something at least. Dragon Age might still be far out, but the trailer successfully sells the excitement of returning to BioWare's fantasy world.

In June 2020, EA didn't mention Dragon Age by name during EA Play but did make some allusions to it. “BioWare imagines and creates worlds where you become the hero of your own story. And we're using this next generation of technology to make those fantasy worlds your reality,” it said, while sharing some 3D environment clips that sure look like they included red lyrium.

The first teaser for Dragon Age 4 was during The Game Awards in 2018. It was a very brief video with voiceover from Solas, the Dread Wolf himself, who we're definitely assuming will be Dragon Age 4's antagonist.

Which companion characters will be in Dragon Age 4? 

(Image credit: Electronic Arts, BioWare)

We don't know yet which former and future Dragon Age characters will be party companions just yet. Even those who make a return could take on non-combat roles like Dragon Age Inquisition's advisors. Even if we don't know who's made the cut for the adventuring party yet, here's who we think could show up in some way during the game.

Solas
One character we know will play a part in the events of Dragon Age 4 is the Dread Wolf himself. Solas has been featured in both teaser trailers so far and his relationship to the greater struggles of Thedas means he's not going anywhere any time soon. It seems pretty unlikely that he'll actually be included in your party this time though. You know, because of the Dread Wolf stuff.

Varric Tethras
Beloved party member and storyteller Varric narrated the second teaser trailer for Dragon Age 4, so it seems safe to assume he'll be making an appearance too. He was a party member in Dragon Age 2 and Inquisition. Will he be in the fray for a third time, or staying on the sidelines like Inquisition's advisor characters?

Who else?
Dragon Age has a history of recurring characters, like Alistair who was a companion in Origins and returned for appearances in the two sequels or Leliana who shares a similar trajectory. It's safe to say that we'll see some more familiar faces in Dragon Age 4, but which ones?

So far BioWare has committed to hanging up its protagonists between Dragon Age games. Each adventure comes with a new hero, though the Grey Warden and Hawke do have the ability to cameo in Dragon Age: Inquisition. It's possible we might then see an appearance of The Inquisitor in Dragon Age 4, but they'll likely not be center stage. 

Flemeth, like Solas, is either elven legend or a god going by many names, who has seemed to be an underlying force in the overarching plot of the series. It seems likely that she will make an appearance as well.

Another old friend that may make a comeback is Fenris, the Tevinter elven warrior from Dragon Age 2. He was the star of a Dragon Age comic called Blue Wraith in 2020. It's hard to say whether Fenris appearing in a comic is setting him up for a cameo in Dragon Age 4 or for retirement as a character. Previous party members showing up in supporting Dragon Age media have gone both ways in the past. 

Tevinter mage Dorian Pavus seems like another likely candidate given that he headed back to his homeland in Inquisition's final DLC. He made a quick appearance in the Tevinter Nights stories. Some of the concept art shown during the behind the scenes video in summer 2020 sure looked like that familiar mustached mage too.

More confirmation Dragon Age 4 will be ‘single-player focused’


December 4 is Dragon Age Day (D4, get it?) just as November 7 is Mass Effect Day, a time when the BioWare RPG's fan community comes together to celebrate, raise money for charity, and pray for more scraps of info about the next game in the series. This year, BioWare's annual Dragon Age post included two short stories (one about Grey Wardens, the other necromancers), and a quick note about Dragon Age 4:

“Speaking of building new worlds and stories for you to explore, we want to let you all know that we're still hard at work on building the next single-player focused experience for Dragon Age. We're excited for next year when we can talk more about what we're working on.”

The phrase “single-player focused experience” may not seem like much, but it backs up a report from earlier this year that Dragon Age 4 was being retooled to ditch its planned live service features. Back in 2019, EA began “doubling down on live services” as chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen put it, and there was concern that Dragon Age 4 would be multiplayer-focused, as Anthem was. The failure of Anthem, and the success of singleplayer action game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, reportedly encouraged EA to cancel whatever multiplayer components Dragon Age 4 would have had.

Last month, Dragon Age 4's senior creative director left BioWare. Matt Goldman had been part of the studio since 1998, beginning as an artist on Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. He took over as creative lead on Dragon Age 4 in 2017 when Mike Laidlaw left

Fortnite Chapter 2 Finale Event Ends With World Changing Results and The Rock’s Reveal


Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 has come to a close with “The End”, a finale Season 8 event that rocked the island to its core. The Cube Queen’s overwhelming forces dominated the players -all hope was lost. Thankfully, the island was seemingly saved by members of The Seven and The Foundation, who was revealed to be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Fortnite’s “The End” event started out calm enough. Players had fun bouncing around while a large timer counted down, our pending doom juxtaposed by dancing Narutos. All of that changed at the 9-minute mark as Cube Monsters started bleeding into our reality. Armed with legendary weapons and mounted turrets, we easily tore through the first wave of enemies.Then the clock struck zero and all inter-dimensional hell broke loose.

The Cube Queen, seen floating above a pyramid like structure, sent up a beam of light that tore a hole in the sky. Apparently, she had conscripted the Alien armada last seen in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. Waves of flying saucers descended on us as giant monsters emerged from several cubed structures. Things weren’t going well.

From here, our focus shifted underground as a cutscene depicts Dr. Slone entering a secret IO base. She and her guards had captured Jones (Jonesy?) for some nefarious purpose; it looked like they were going to either scramble his mind or download important information locked away in his skull. Before Slone could finish though, Jones is saved by The Foundation, who removes his helmet revealing himself to be The Rock.

After that it’s a mad dash to the island’s core. Other members of The Seven help us, the Loopers, meet up with Jones and The Foundation just as a giant Cubed Monster smashes into their pressurized environment. Water comes flooding in and we float to the surface to witness the island tipping on its side. A few seconds later and Cube Queen – who seems to be tethered to her pyramid-like structure – is destroyed by the moving land mass. As the Fortnite’s world literally flips upside down, we see that there is another island on the other side. Fortnite Chapter 3 is here…almost.

Like previous Chapter ending events, Fortnite will be down as Epic Games updates the game. Because of this, fans won’t be able to see what this “new” island has in store until the servers come back up. That said, they’ll have plenty to talk about. Not only was “The End” an entertaining ride, we got to learn more about the mysterious group called The Seven as well as a brief look at Dr. Slone and Jones’ relationship – we knew they were at odds but not necessarily to this extent. An action filled finale, the Rock reveal, and a few bits of Fortnite lore resulted in a grand time for those who participated.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 will be starting soon. In the meantime, we’ll be sure to keep you posted with any and all Fortnite related news. That includes sharing our thoughts on the past 15 Major Events in Fortnite, the most recent updates, and more.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson makes his Fortnite debut as Chapter 2 ends


Who among us does not love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? Somebody, I'm sure, but that doesn't help me make my point. One of Hollywood's highest-paid film stars has made his way to Fortnite, finally and inevitably, and he's playing exactly the character that fans thought he was: The Foundation. Fortnite fans are predictably stoked.

With armor styled after Dwayne Johnson's distinctive Samoan-style family tattoo, heroic vigilante The Foundation has been trying to stop bad people from doing bad things to The Zero Point. There's a lady named The Cube Queen involved. Look, it's relatively complex, but we've got a whole guide about what's going on with Fortnite's transition from Chapter 2 to Chapter 3.

The event stream, linked above, is the end of Fortnite Chapter 2. It's just like how Chapter 1 transitioned to Chapter 2, in a way: With the island seemingly destroyed, players are left floating on an endless sea. Now Chapter 3 is on the way, ushered in by The Rock and including both downhill sliding and web-slinging Spider-Man mechanics. 

We'll see more about that when Fortnite's scheduled downtime is over.

Classic action RPG Titan Quest has a new expansion that goes back to China


With the dangerous creatures of the far east starting acting a fool, there's only one person Emperor Yao will call: The protagonist of Titan Quest, who is very good at killing any and all troublesome mythological beasts you can find. The fourth expansion for Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition is called Eternal Embers, and it's out now. Here's your official description:

“Action-RPG Titan Quest is getting a new expansion! In Eternal Embers, players will set foot in the mystic realms of the Far East. Legendary entities from Asian mythology like the Jade Emperor, the Ten Suns, and the Dragon King of the Four Seas are part of an epic storyline, spanning four new acts. Over 30 different types of enemies and bosses are standing in the player's path and a new mastery becomes available. With the legendary powers of the ancient Neidan masters, the blessings of demigods, and the will of ancient emperors, all the power is at the player’s fingertips.”

Sure, this is a 15 year old game, with the original Titan Quest released in 2006, but the clearly-beloved action RPG has gotten three expansions since its Anniversary Edition revival in 2016. First taking the protagonist to Ragnarok, then Atlantis, and now back to China. (You go to China in the last bits of the original Titan Quest, if you'd forgotten.)

I'm honestly kind of interested in what kind of nonsense the designers got up to with Neidan alchemy. Can you create powerful potions? Cultivate your breath to fly? Become a weird pseudo-immortal? I won't lie to you, I kind of want to go full Wuxia on some ancient Greek and Egyptian baddies.
