After Fortnite players complete the season 9 week 10 challenges, which include visiting public service signs, calling in air strikes, and dealing damage with shotguns, they will be rewarded the loading screen seen above. It’s the standard operating procedure to check these loading screens for secret battle stars, as every week gave players the secret, free Battle Pass tier in prior seasons.

Mojang has shown off the first gameplay footage of Minecraft Earth as the game approaches public testing. The developer confirmed that the Minecraft Earth closed beta will be kicking off “in the next two weeks” on iOS. The game is coming to Android, as well, but beta testing for Google’s platform will follow sometime after iOS. Minecraft Earth, if you’re unfamiliar, was initially unveiled in May as an augmented realty (AR)-enabled version of the popular game. Similarly to Pokemon Go, the game lays a virtual world on top of the real one. Through your phone screen, you’re able to mine resources, and build and create alongside others in a shared world. Today’s gameplay footage does a great job of explaining how it all works, and what you can expect from the upcoming test. Being a closed beta, however, only a select few will be invited.

Dr. Mario World, the most recent entry in the Dr. Mario series, was originally set to release tomorrow, July 10. However, plans have changed, as Dr. Mario World is now available on mobile devices. Since its very first trailer, Dr. Mario World has been billed as a nontraditional Dr. Mario game. Specifically, while the mechanics of Dr. Mario World are similar to Dr. Mario, the mobile game has been described as more comparable to Candy Crush Saga than it is to other Dr. Mario titles. This can be seen very clearly in the Dr. Mario World multiplayer trailer, which dropped just a few days ago, and it can now be experienced firsthand thanks to the game’s early release. Notably, the early release of Dr. Mario World is highly similar to a move made by Pokemon GO developer Niantic, who recently released Harry Potter: Wizards Unite a day earlier than was expected. There could be a number of reasons behind Nintendo’s decision to release its new mobile game early, … [Read more...] about Dr. Mario World is Out a Day Early
