Posting on their official Facebook page, the developer confirms that their upcoming update due to be released on Wednesday 27th April 2016, will include new weapons such as the Trident, a tier  4 spear weapon and a new Cudgel, tier 1 bludgeon. The new trident looks particularly sleek, some users comparing it the weapon used by Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games film series, a tier 4 spear has previously not been included in the game, so this is a great weapon for players focused on spear weapons. New perks such as Dig Deep and Angry Octopus should tie in well with these new weapons.

New Update For Fallout 4 Adds Over 30 Far Harbor Themed Settlement Objects

Online users have found over 30 new settlement objects in the newest 1.5 update for the PC, could this possibly be new settlement items part of the Far Harbor DLC?

The items in question are vast and cover different categories such as barns and elevators, features that many bethesda fans have asked for a long time, due to the scale of the addition I highly doubt this will be a free update and most likely will be a Far Harbor DLC addition, this item list containing more items than Bethesda’s previous Fallout 4 DLC, Wasteland Workshop.
Users on online forums have discussed the depth of the items, one YouTuber has previewed the list on his channel and has discussed all of the items.

Leave a comment down below, are you personally excited for these new items to be added?

Red Dead Redemption 2 Map Leaked, Is This Proof It Is Real?


Could this possibly be the new Red Dead Redemption 2 map? This could be proof it is.

This Red Dead Redemption 2 map leaked a few days ago on websites such, and more. Users have analysed the image, mainly to the old map and the details of the locations.  One reddit user mentioned the location of one of the areas, namely to another take2 game soon to be released in October 2016, Mafia 3, more about Mafia 3 in the suggested articles at the bottom. The location being New Bordeaux, these games both share this location so it may hint there may be some sort of Easter egg(s) throughout the game, could the recent announcement of Mafia 3, mean an announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming soon, perhaps at E3, who knows currently.

The reference of the same location, this could possibly mean that this is real, more proof that it could possibly be real is the general location names, they are similar, for example Cumberland Forest and Cholla Springs, also the inclusion of the Grizzlies is exciting for most people. Members of online forum NeoGaf have also mentioned new information, for example:

A source close to the development of the new Red Dead game has now confirmed to us that the map is indeed the real deal, revealing that this is a “very recent” art direction map for the upcoming title.

They also confirmed that the game will be set before the events of Redemption, and that the new map is just east of the one that featured in Red Dead Redemption.

That is more confirmation, the final piece of proof is that there is no presence of any sort of railroad, on the Red Dead Redemption 2 leaked map, meaning a lack of train travel, combat etc. This also means that the game must be set earlier than Red Dead Redemption, since Red Dead Redemption had a strong railroad or train network.

Will the Children of Atom Be A Joinable Faction in Fallout 4 DLC Far Harbor? These Face Paints Say So

With the Automatron and Wasteland Workshop DLCs out of the way, everyone is preparing for Bethesda’s newest offering, Far Harbor, set in the real life location of Bar Harbor, Maine the player travels to solve a case for the Detective Nick Valentine, on this case he meets Synths, Children of Atom and many more!

Here is an official extract from Bethesda:

A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.

Now, one YouTuber has managed to unlock the face paints that go with the DLC, although the textures are not there (hence the facepaints being blank) there are a total of 12, could this mean that the player is finally able to join the Children of Atom faction? Lets us know down below.

Unlock guide:

Open console and enter: set AtomFacePaints to 1 – this requires the newest beta update.
