PUBG Mobile users will soon get a chance to take on mummies, sandstorms, and more mythical monsters as possible details from the upcoming Ancient Secret Event has been leaked. With the 14th season expected to hit smartphones soon, this new mode will see PUBG Mobile gamers battle for top tier loots on the Erangel map. Three ancient buildings, with designs resembling ancient Egyptian architecture, will also reportedly be added. To make things more interesting, these structures would soon start rising high in the air.

As per a gameplay video shared on YouTube by Royal Kraken, in the new mode, the game would begin like a regular matchup on the Erangel map. However, massive sandstorms would soon cover up the screen, leading to the appearance of a mammoth sandy figure from within a huge structure. This monster would then help materialize three buildings which look straight out of ancient Egypt.

The real fun begins when players land on these new structures, which may pop up anywhere on the map. These buildings would suddenly start flying high over the world and the only way players can exit safely is with the help of parachutes or if they somehow manage to hop their way down through the flying structures.

In the mode, players can also go head on against a monstrous mummy to win top tier guns and armour. The loot in these flying structures are also expected to be of the highest class. As of now, it is unclear whether players will randomly spawn into this mode.

In a recent leak, PUBG Mobile player Mr.GHOST GAMING revealed a trailer for the upcoming Season 14 on his YouTube channel. The trailer showed several map designs, ranging from open deserts to erupting volcanoes, along with Mad Max-inspired vehicles. The video also suggests that the upcoming season will be titled, “Spark the Flame.”

The ongoing season is ends on July 12. According to a tweet by PUBG Mobile, the new update, 0.19.0, is expected to arrive on July 7.

 Apex Legends will be making its way to mobile by the end of this year. A video of a conference call showing EA CEO Andrew Wilson talking about mobile gaming has been leaked on Twitter by an Apex Legends leaks channel. In the video, Wilson reveals that the company is planning to soft launch Apex Legends — which is currently on PC and consoles — on mobile by the end of this year. This will be the first battle royale game that EA has launched on mobile.

Back in May of last year, Electronic Arts (EA) had announced its plans to bring Apex Legends to mobile with no timeline. Now, as per the video shared by @ApexLatest on Twitter, CEO of Electronic Arts, Andrew Wilson, in a conference call, shared some information about the mobile version of the battle royale game. Wilson stated that the company plans on a soft launch for Apex Legends mobile by the end of this year. A soft launch means the game will be released to a small audience or market which will allow the company to evaluate the response and status of the game, helping it to improve the game before releasing it the masses.

Wilson spoke about mobile gaming and plans of bringing several other games to the mobile platform. These games are in various stages of development. Apex Legends (Review) in particular, stood out as it will be EA's first mobile battle royale game, building on its success on PC and console, and entering a market that, as of now, is dominated by PUBG Mobile.

Apex Legends released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in February last year as a free to play battle royale game. At the time, it rose in popularity due to its new mechanics like the ‘ping' system that was later adopted by other battle royale games as well, and the ability to respawn teammates even after they have been killed. It also brought a selection of characters or ‘Legends' that have their own abilities as well.

As of now, EA has not officially shared any information about the mobile version of Apex Legends. And, since this will be a soft launch of the game, it is possible that it won't reach most users until next year.

This week's big live event changed Fortnite forever - and now the game's new season has began with a heavily waterlogged map.

A large portion of Fortnite's island is now submerged, many of last season's new locations are washed away, and fresh areas are hospitable explore.

Overall, Chapter 2 Season 3 features a Waterworld-like theme, with its scene-setting trailer showing off a floating shanty town of survivors. Oh, and also Jason Momoa.

New locations include The Authority, a brand new central fortress to interchange the Agency, and Catty Corner within the bottom right of the map. Slurpy Swamp and therefore the Rig are replaced by the Westworld-looking Fortilla and Rickety Rig shantytown.

This season adds sharks you'll hitch a ride on, and its trailer shows regular cars and trucks are coming - when the water subsides. It's expected that this is the complete extent of the flood, which the map will change week by week because the water level slowly drops.

There are new roving gangs of NPCs to battle, named Marauders, almost like the henchmen of last season. There are new weapons, including a flare gun, and many of returned items like the Chug Jug. And, of course, there is a new battle pass - where you'll earn a kitten robot version of last season's breakout star Meowscles.

Developer Lightbulb Crew's stylish turn-based tactical horror RPG Othercide will be heading to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 28th July, with a Switch release due "soon".

Even without delving into the fundamentals, Othercide is an immediately arresting proposition, featuring a striking art style that combines a stark monochromatic colour palette (with the occasional searing splashes of red) and some wonderfully unsettling monster design.

Beneath that veneer, however, are some equally intriguing ideas that build out from an XCOM-like turn-based tactical core. Players control an army of warriors known as the Daughters - taking the form of either Blademasters, Soulslingers, or Shieldbearer, each with their own skills - and must race across a dying timeline to save humanity from foes originating outside of reality.

Lightbulb Crew describes Othercide's strategic battle system as an "intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters", all of which plays out through the game's Dynamic Timeline System. This enables players to plan ahead during battle, setting up chains of abilities that can deployed against enemies as combat continues, making it possible to interrupt attacks, trigger delayed actions, or even use special reaction skills.

If the tide of battle turns against players, Daughters can be sacrificed to restore the health of others - potentially making for some tough decisions - but those that survive will evolve over time, levelling up, acquiring new skills, and even gaining new stat-boosting bonuses from the memories of the boss-like Suffering standing in the way of humanity's salvation.

Quite how all that will ultimately come together remains to be seen, but those willing to take a punt can pre-order Othercide now on Steam and Xbox One with 15% off the usual £30-ish price tag. Publisher Focus Interactive says that Switch and PlayStation 4 pre-orders will go live closer to Othercide's 28th July release date.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corporation's genre-defining battle royale experience, is free-to-play this weekend on Steam.

Battlegrounds - or PUBG, to its friends - inspired a wave of similarly styled last-man-standing games following its enormously successful early access release in 2017, and while it's long-since been overshadowed by the likes of Fortnite and Apex Legends, it still enjoys a healthy audience, welcoming overflow 200,000 players a month on Steam consistent with SteamCharts.

Since its initial release, PUBG's 100-player skirmishes have expanded to cover six maps - a tutorial area, original location Erangel, the desert expanse of Miramar, the North African Karakin, the rainforest-themed Sanhok, and therefore the snow-covered Vikendi - with the latter having received a significant makeover earlier this year as a part of the ongoing Season 7.

Those who've been looking to dip their toes into PUBG - and perhaps inspect Vikendi's impressively enhanced dinosaur theme park while they're there - can play the battle royale game for free of charge right away until 6pm on Monday, 8th June.

Unlike many of its popular genre bedfellows, PUBG isn't free-to-play, but those looking to get stuck in additional permanently once the free weekend expires can cash in of a 50% discount, bringing the value right down to £13.49 until Monday. All progress from the free weekend are going to be carried over to the complete game.

PUBG Mobile may soon be getting a major new addition with a new map to play, as well as a new weapon and vehicle. A new Classic map has appeared in the beta version of the game, and it could make its way to the regular version of the game in the near future. It is called ‘Secretmap' in the beta version but a report suggests that the name of this new map could be ‘Fourex'. This new map was teased by PUBG Mobile on Twitter as well with some postcards showing four different areas of the map.

PUBG Mobile 'Secretmap' details

The new Classic map in PUBG Mobile beta is relatively smaller than an average map like Erangel. The total number of players in this map is also lower than what is allowed in Erangel and Miramar. It comes with some new buildings that have some similarities to the ones in Sanhok, which is another relatively smaller map, as well as some buildings taken from Erangel. The terrain is a little different and includes both snow areas and grassy areas. It also has a drivable Monster truck as a new vehicle, as well as the P90 sub-machine gun. There is also a new shotgun called the SPAS-12.



There are some gameplay changes as well like enemies being automatically marked when you shoot at them. Interestingly, there are some areas with treasure chests but they do not open as of now. Additionally, the new secret map is the first map that has come to the mobile version of the game first.

As per a report by Dotesports, this new secret map could be called ‘Fourex'. It has four main parts that are similar to some areas in Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi maps. These four areas were previously teased by PUBG Mobile on Twitter in the form of four images of postcards with stamps showing one area each of the new map.

PUBG Mobile is getting a major update on June 1 along with a “mysterious jungle” mode, but that might not include this new map. As of now, there is no information on what the official name of the map will be and when it will come to PUBG Mobile. Also, since the new secret map is in the beta version of the game, it is not the final build and may see changes when it does officially launch.
