Rockstar scheduled GTA Online Freemode Events update on September 15th and released a trailer showcasing a few of the events that we can expect to enjoy.

Long queues and lobbies will be long forgotten as they claim we will be able to join in seamlessly as the events unfold around us. GTA Online Freemode sessions will allow different customization options so you can have control over what events will occur, leaving you to have the decision over what you want to do and play.

Some of the announced events are “King of the Castle”. The title says it all for this one, as it is an every man for himself fight, where one player has to occupy a specific location as his/her own, and fight to defend it as the others try and get it for themselves.

“Hunt the Beast”, will be a mode where one of the players will transform into a beastly character with improved strength and speed, while the other players will have to chase it down and kill it. The beast needs to go through a number of checkpoints in a limited time in order to win and the “hunters” will only get to see the beast on the mini-map once as it passes through a checkpoint. This could prove to be an interesting challenge as the “beast” could simply blend in with the crowd and make it extremely hard on the others to detect it if he/she is cunning enough.

“Penned in” will be a challenge in which around 12 players will have to drive around and make sure they do not get out of a designated area. The marked “dome” will move around, taking sharp turns and go through various obstacles that the players must face while shrinking as time passes. Whoever gets out of the area and does not return in 9 seconds, is out for good.

Expect many more challenges and thrills from GTA Online Freemode update, scheduled for September 15. Check out the trailer bellow.

Daniel John Coste has a passion for many great things like movies, fiction writing, video games and travel. He also gets easily excited by anything regarding tech innovation and space exploration. He aspires to become a world renown fiction writer - coming soon.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
