Published

on

The first batch of Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms spoilers, revealed by Wizards of the Coast today, showcased new alternative art that’s packed with flavor and nostalgia. 

A total of three new MTG alternative art forms were revealed during the Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms (AFR) spoiler stream today: Classic module land frame, rule book cards, and art cards with stats on the backside. Existing alternative art forms, such as borderless frames, will also be in the upcoming Standard-legal set.

There are a total of nine module land frames within AFR, eight of which are new MTG lands and one existing land (Evolving Wilds). Module alternative art lands feature throwback D&D cover artwork from adventure modules. Additional flavor was added to the names of the eight new lands, with each sounding like an adventure. 

Rule book cards

The artwork on rule book cards was inspired by early D&D monster manuals. Several of the original artists returned to illustrate the AFR alternative art cards, including Russ Nicholson, who illustrated Bruenor Battlehammer. There’s a total of 51 rule book cards that include four Legendary creatures and iconic monsters. 

Art cards

There’s a total of 81 art cards within the AFR set of which an unspecified number of creatures have D&D basic stats on the backside. All stats are legitimate and can be used to reference a creature while playing Dungeons & Dragons

Borderless AFR art cards

Based on the AFR spoilers revealed by WotC, players can expect to find borderless art on planeswalkers and dragons. There’s a total of six borderless art Mythic dragons and five with an Uncommon rarity, along with five planeswalkers.  


The upcoming MTG Standard-legal AFR set will have a digital release on July 8 and a tabletop global release on July 23.

PUBG Season 13 adds map updates, new Emergency Landing, and Secret Room mechanics for Taego

Published

on

PUBG is getting a big update in August, with Season 13.1 bringing some fixes and the introduction of the Taego Secret Room for the game’s newest map when it launches on Aug. 4. 

The Taego Secret Room is a randomly spawning area that will appear on the map and contain some of the best gear available in PUBG. Players can try to track the room down or just randomly stumble upon it, but anyone who wants to enter will need to find the secret key, too. 

Season 13 also introduces a new ranked season, adjustments to the Sanhok map, and even more changes for Taego, including the introduction of plane Emergency Landings at the start of some matches. 

At the start of some games, the plane carrying players into the Taego map could experience an engine exploding that will force it to make an quick emergency landing. Any player that doesn’t jump out before the plane hits the ground will begin the match with 50 percent of their base health. 

The PUBG team is also working to improve Sanhok by adjusting the geography of the Northwest Island to feature small cliffs and rocks, providing some much-needed cover for players moving across the shore.  

Ranked Season 13 brings an entirely new collection of rewards will be live to earn for players for two months, starting on Aug. 4. Players who participated in Season 12 will also automatically have any rewards they unlocked added to their inventory at the start of Season 13. 

The 13.1 update map rotation will see Paramo replaced with Karakin in Normal Matches. Here is the full rotation list. 

  • Erangel
  • Miramar
  • Sanhok
  • Vikendi
  • Karakin

PUBG Season 13 launches on Aug. 4 for PC players and Aug. 12 for consoles, with the update live right now on the PC Test Server.

Published

on

Spurs Sports & Entertainment, which owns the NBA franchise San Antonio Spurs among other teams, has made a minority investment into Tribe Gaming. Tribe is a mobile esports organization that was founded in 2017 and is based in San Antonio, Texas.

Tribe’s founder and CEO Patrick “Chief Pat” Carney said the investment will open roads for multiple long-term collaborations with the sporting and entertainment company and will help the organization “dominate the world of mobile esports.” This includes “cross-content collabs, co-branded marketing efforts, talent and audience crossovers, and shared strategic expertise.”

“Bringing SS&E into the Tribe Gaming family is a massive milestone for our company,” Carney said. “With SS&E having achieved decades of unparalleled success in the traditional sports world, we’re excited to leverage this partnership towards building the leading mobile gaming esports organization.”

SS$E now joins basketball player for Charlotte Hornets Gordon Hayward, mobile gaming veteran Kristian Segerstrale, WWE wrestler Claudio Castagnoli, and angel investor Victor Krahn in having a stake at Tribe.

Currently, the esports organization has five teams in different mobile games. These are Brawl Stars, CoD: Mobile, Clash Royale, Wild Rift, and Clash of Clans. Besides this, Tribe boasts an impressive lineup of 18 content creators, which includes OJ, Lex, Kairos, Ferg, and others.

Earlier this month, Tribe also unveiled consumer technology brand Elgato as a content creation partner. This partnership will see the establishment of a streaming series on Tribe’s YouTube channel, a creator incubation program, and creator education sessions. The organization has also said that it will be making some more announcements over the coming weeks.

The Suicide Squad’s Bloodsport is coming to Fortnite

Published

on

The DC Comics and Fortnite collaborations keep on coming, with The Suicide Squad director James Gunn sharing that one of the film’s stars, Bloodsport, will be coming to the Fortnite island.

In a clip shared to social media, Idris Elba, one of the film’s lead actors and the star portraying Bloodsport in the upcoming film, announced the news of Bloodsport coming to the island. The clip shows how the iconic DC antihero will look in-game, but fans will have to wait until tomorrow for more information on how they can get their hands on this collaboration.

James Gunn’s film The Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres and HBO Max on Aug. 6, bringing plenty of DC’s more obscure and underutilized characters to the big screen for the first time. DC’s relationship with Fortnite would seem stronger than ever with the two companies that have worked together on the Batman / Fortnite: Zero Point comic series, which has run for six issues so far. 

Even this season’s battle pass boasts one of DC’s most iconic characters, Superman, who will be joining the cast later this month. While Bloodsport is joining the cast, it isn’t clear if any of the other members of The Suicide Squad will be brought into the action aside from Harley Quinn, who has been available in the game for a while.

If you’re eager to add Bloodsport to your collection of characters in Fortnite, you’ll want to keep an eye out when more news drops tomorrow regarding his release.
