Fortnite’s Creative Mode is getting an Unreal upgrade next year

Epic Games are the Fortnite company, sure. But on the developer side of things, they’re the Unreal Engine company – and while Fortnite is obviously made using that base, the two rarely overlapped if you weren’t actively employed to work on the battle royale. Next year, however, Fortnite players will be able to spice up their creative maps with custom models, bespoke scripts and editable maps using Unreal’s toolset. (more…)

No, this Mortal Engines-themed Planet Coaster build won’t eat your rides

Alright, listen. The 2018 Mortal Engines adaptation might’ve been largely forgettable, but it did a damn fine job of bringing the book series’ ridiculous towns-turned-monster-trucks to life. Now, one Planet Coaster architect has crafted their own version of London-Upon-Wheels, wrapping their fantasy amusement park around a multi-tiered truck of a city. It’s just a shame there’s no way it’ll ever move. Unfortunately, Planet Coaster just wasn’t built for that. (more…)

What if Halo 3’s multiplayer was flooded with rats, though?

343 are finally getting weird with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and that’s great. But they were never going to hold a candle against the game’s modders, who’ve lately decided what Halo 3 really needs is to turn everyone into a rat. That’s exactly the premise behind Rat Slayer, an upcoming mod that – daft as it is – never dared to consider whether John Halo isn’t already just two-dozen rodents wearing a man-shaped suit of power armour. Now there’s a thought to keep you up at night. (more…)
