Cosmic chaos descends upon Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 7: Invasion

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

A mysterious alien army is invading the Island — having started with an explosive strike. Under the direction of Doctor Slone, the Imagined Order (IO) has taken it upon themselves to fight back, but their selflessness is in question.

No matter who you trust, the technology of both sides is at your disposal. Thanks to data provided by a certain “Hot Saucers,” we’re here to give you a rundown of what you can find on the Island in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7: Invasion!

Cosmic chaos descends upon Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 7: Invasion

Inventions of the Aliens and IO

Known to most as “UFOs,” Saucers are in the sky above certain POIs each match. Shoot one down to become the pilot, then use it to attack and abduct. What to shoot it down with? This Season introduces new, high-tech weapons to take advantage of.

Created by the IO, pick up the Pulse Rifle for a versatile weapon that’ll rarely let you down. Word has it Doctor Slone carries a special version reserved for herself, so you’ll need to square off with her directly to call it your own.

The Pulse Rifle. The IO takes great pride in this item.

The IO has also invented the Rail Gun, which lets you shoot past surfaces. Don’t get too complacent, though: the Rail Gun has a targeting beam that’ll make your presence known. Unsurprising coming from the IO, it happens to do extra damage against Saucers.

With the Rail Gun’s defiance of physics, some find it surprising it’s not of Alien origin.

Though not a weapon per se, the IO has additionally invented the Pulse Scanner. This device fires Recon Bolts, marking all opponents (and Chests) in their diameter.

The Aliens have appliances of their own, too. With the Kymera Ray Gun, fire a continuous beam and only stop to recharge. It doesn’t do a whole lot of damage against structures or Saucers (so it may not be the best choice if you’re trying to shoot one down!), but it’s powerful against opponents.

Like Lady Dimitrescu herself, Resident Evil Village towered over the competition in May’s PlayStation Store charts, earning the survival horror adventure the top spot not only on the US and EU PS5 charts, but the EU PS4 list as well.

Returnal, FIFA 21, and MLB The Show 21 made impressive showings on PS5 as well, while Rust Console Edition, Minecraft, and Mass Effect Legendary Edition earned high placements on PS4. Beat Saber and Call of Duty: Warzone continue to dominate on the PS VR and Free-to-Play charts, respectively.

The full charts, as always, can be found below. Hit the comments and let us know how you think June’s releases will shake out. I can think of a certain Lombax and a certain ex-SOLDIER who will be vying for the coveted #1 spot…

Breaking down the character classes of Chivalry 2, out tomorrow

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Huzzah! The age of Chivalry 2 is finally upon us! 

The teams here at Torn Banner Studios and our publisher Tripwire Presents are extremely excited to bring our multiplayer melee combat game to PS4 and PS5. Considerable work has gone into making this game one of the most fun, cinematic, and (of course) brutal multiplayer experiences ever, and we can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on the full version of the game!

Breaking down the character classes of Chivalry 2, out tomorrow

What kind of player are you? Prefer a support role? More into risk/reward-type builds? Are you more interested in ranged vs. melee combat? In Chivalry 2 there are so many character classes and subclasses to choose from that there’s bound to be a build that strikes your fancy. So in anticipation of the game’s full release, we’ve broken down each class to further help you decide how you want to experience the 64-player medieval madness of Chivalry 2. 


Health: 100 | Movement Speed: 100 | Stamina: 60

With a fun mix of ranged weapons from crossbows to throwable javelins, Archers are the preferred class for anyone who wants to do damage from afar. With a Special that charges faster with successful headshots, the Archer class is designed to reward players who are especially deadly, but they also have significantly lower health compared to the other three classes in the game. There are only a limited number of Archers allowed per team, so make sure you snag a spot quickly!   

  • Subclasses: Longbowman, Crossbowman, Skirmisher
  • Special Abilities: Brazier (light arrows on fire), Banner (heal allies), Quiver (restock ammo)


Health: 175 | Movement Speed: 80 | Stamina: 80

With the Knight’s larger health pool, it’s the top pick for beginners hopping into Chivalry 2 for the first time. The Knight’s arsenal is also very balanced with subclasses that allow a wide range of options to try out like the shield-wielding Guardian or the high-damage Crusader. Before going for a class that’s a little more specialized, try out the Knight to get a taste of a little bit of every

Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker: Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida Q&A

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Every two years since 2013’s relaunch, Final Fantasy XIV fans have gathered in huge conventions spread out across the world, allowing players in North America, Europe and Japan the chance to get a first tantalising peek at what’s coming in the MMORPG’s next content-rich expansion, as well as participate in championships, challenges, and tons of other community activities. 

This year, of course, things were a little different. The Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival 2021 was purely digital, allowing all players across the globe to partake in this special event simultaneously. There were live concerts, cosplay contests and other digitally friendly activities. As ever, the convention kicked off with the Keynote presentation, which revealed a wealth of new content coming to the game’s fourth expansion Endwalker. As is now tradition, the game’s director and producer Naoki Yoshida had an extra special treat for fans to reveal the second new job introduced in the expansion: the creator took to the stage dressed up as a Reaper. 


With the Digital Fan Festival now finished and Yoshida back in civilian clothes, we took the opportunity to talk to the creator about the Reaper job, Endwalker’s music, the brand-new male Viera race, and more.  

The second new playable job you have revealed, Reaper, is brand new to the Final Fantasy series. How did you decide to go for this job and where did you find inspiration from? Can you tell us a little bit about how Reaper will play, and what will differentiate it from the other melee DPS jobs?

Just to start things off, thank you for taking the time to conduct this interview! Now, onto the questions.

Whenever we brainstorm ideas for each new job in Final Fantasy XIV, our base concept and goal is to make sure that each job has a unique gameplay experience. In this case, before we even reached the stage of finding inspiration, we first looked at the overall job composition and distribution, and from there decided that we wanted to add a melee DPS. It is after that when we looked to come up with ideas as to what kind of job we wanted to make.

Many players around the world, especially those from the West, had been requesting the addition of a job that uses a large, two-handed scythe—we used the idea of a two-handed scythe weapon as a base, and started brainstorming ideas for new jobs from there. I asked several game designers who are involved in the creation of new jobs to take some liberties and submit their ideas—we discussed those ideas to make our decision.


One idea that came up was to utilize not only the player’s own aether, but to combine it with a different source of aether to fight in battle. It was from there that we came up with the idea of a grim reaper from the scythe aspect, and fro
