According to a new major leak from game data-miners, Fortnite may soon get four new LTMs as part of an upcoming update, though not all of them appear to be terribly creative.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 Epic Games Store integration stirs up some controversy

Good Old Games is no longer Good Old Games. Whether that's a good or bad thing is something its users are still coming to terms with. GOG, which now just stands for GOG, has opened its doors wide not just to newer titles but to other PC games distribution platforms that don't really mesh well with its philosophy. The latter has mostly come via integration with its Galaxy 2.0 launcher to have one place to see all your games. The latest to join that rather small group is Epic Games and, unsurprisingly, not everyone is gushing over the announcement.

Fortnite’s rare Golden Mushroom disabled after disappointing players

Epic Games has disabled the rarest item in Fortnite, the mythical Golden Mushroom that few people have ever (publicly) found. Unlike the other mushrooms in the game, this ultra-rare item is a shimmering gold color and very hard to find, presumably bestowing the person who finds it with full health and shields. This wasn't the case earlier this month, however, and now the mushroom has disappeared entirely.

Fortnite bug lets players open weapon vaults without key cards

One of the most coveted destinations in Fortnite Chapter 2 are the vaults, which are locked rooms full of loot crates and high-tier weapons. There are only a few of these vaults and they can only be opened with a key card being held by a boss NPC that must first be eliminated. The time it takes to get into the vault makes it a gamble, but a new key-skipping bug has changed this in a big way.

Epic Games iOS app lets your face control game characters’ expressions

Photorealistic games have more or less become a staple of modern games to the point that even smaller studios and indie developers would love to take a stab at it. While there are many tools, both free and expensive, that let game devs create mouth-watering 3D visuals, one aspect of 3D games still escapes the grasp of all but the biggest studios. Mocap, short for motion capture, is tricky and expensive, especially when taking into account believable and totally not-uncanny facial expressions. It turns out that Epic Games has a handy tool for recording facial expressions and all you really need is an iPhone.
