RED DEAD ONLINE: DEVS REVEAL FIRST DETAILS

Rockstar recently revealed Red Dead Online, Red Dead Redemption 2’s multiplayer component, will launch in November 2018 (initially as a public beta).

Ninja Predicted Fortnite Cube Path Two Weeks Ago And Nobody Realised

16 days ago, on Monday September 3, Ninja said “The cube’s going Tilted [Towers]… Bro, I’m telling you right now, I’d pay money for this thing to land… to roll over the center building that has been taking all season to build and just crush it again.” Guess what happened earlier today? The cube rolled down the street in Tilted Towers, before turning around and crashing through the brand new building before leaving via the hill to the north-west. Check it out for yourself below.

UPDATE: As today’s live show was being taped, we were informed that it did indeed roll into loot lake and melt, turning the entire lake into a bounce pad!

The feature, currently in testing, is called “Current Trip,” Android Police explains. What it does is to allow Google Maps users to return to the navigation route they’ve just set up in Google Maps without losing it. 
What happens in Google Maps now is that you can’t use the app to perform other searches without interrupting the trip you’re on if you’re already using navigation. But, Google is testing a way to return to your previous driving directions even after you’ve used Google Maps for something else, like searching for a nearby restaurant.

Snap launches new styles of Spectacles that look more like traditional sunglasses

If the main hangup that’s kept you from purchasing Snap’s Spectacles has been their design, two new models that the company is introducing today might eliminate those hesitations. Snap has just announced the new Veronica and Nico styles of Spectacles 2. They contain all the same features and recording quality improvements as the model first introduced in April, but this time inside a more traditional look. It maybe won’t be quite so obvious that you’re wearing Spectacles anymore.

Fortnite Mobile Players Have Figured Out a Way to Predict the Path and Final Location of the Cube

It has been theorized that the cube will eventually end up in, or near, Loot Lake, and mobile players using the lowest graphics settings may have now confirmed it.

See the below image to track where the cube might wind up next!
