Get a new DualShock 4 and 2,000 V-Bucks worth of Fortnite stuff for under $45

If you're in the market for a new DualShock 4, you might as well grab one that comes with some extra goodies for one of the biggest games in the world, right? That's the short and sweet pitch for this new limited-time deal, letting you snag a Fortnite Jet Black DualShock 4 Wireless Controller for $43.99 on Amazon, $16 off the standard price. It's called "Fortnite Jet Black" because it comes with a special bundle of in-game content and V-Bucks for Fortnite, not because Fortnite has its own special, Vantablack-like shade of darkness. I think.

The controller is one of the new models, which features a window that shows the current color of the lightbar and - more importantly - significantly improved battery life from the original DualShock 4s. The Fortnite content comes in three parts: the Neo Versa Outfit, Neo Phrenzy Back Bling, and 500 V-Bucks to spend on whatever you want in the in-game store. Epic Skins like Neo Versa typically cost 1500 V-Bucks (about $15) by themselves, so this deal gives you at least 2,000 V-Bucks worth of in-game stuff and a new controller - all for less than you'd typically spend on a DualShock 4 by itself.

DualShock 4 with Fortnite bundle | $43.99 on Amazon, save $16This eminently practical deal scores you a new controller for your PS4 at a big discount, and it gives you some cool items and V-Bucks for Fortnite. That is called a win-win.View Deal

The latest Fortnite skin asks 'what if 7UP was a person?'

Limelight, the newest Fortnite skin available in the item shop, is here to make you wonder what a can of Sprite or 7UP would look like if it took on human form. To be fair, it looks pretty good. I haven't seen pants this green since allergy season in middle school.

In all seriousness, Limelight lives up to her name by stealing the show with a really fun mix of colors, some lime-shaped earrings, and a hairdo that makes my bald head weep. Please enjoy this image of her having a good ol' time.

Limelight is 1,200 V-Bucks in the Fortnite item shop, and you can also buy similarly citrus-themed Sour Striker harvesting tools for 800 V-Bucks. It's all part of the Citron set, which includes a "Zesty" weapon wrap and a lime-shaped back bling that doesn't seem to actually be in the shop at the moment. These are only available until the end of today's work day (5pm PST), so hop on it.

Fortnite season 11 is just around the corner

Fortnite season 11 will be upon us before we even know it. While season 10 has waxed nostalgic with returning locations, season 11's hook is anyone's guess. We've gathered everything we know about Fortnite season 11 into one location, including the start date, battle pass details, map changes we can expect, and more.

When does Fortnite season 11 start?

A Fortnite season usually lasts about 10 weeks. This means that Fortnite season 11 should start on Oct. 10 (why not 11?), and that season 10 should end shortly before on Oct. 6. A PlayStation Network listing seems to back this up, listing the Oct. 6 date.

Fortnite season 11 battle pass cost

As always, if you want to pick up the basic Fortnite battle pass, it'll cost you 950 V-Bucks. The lowest tier of V-Bucks you can purchase from the store is 1,000 for $9.99, but Epic has previously had a small sale during the first week of a new season, so you might be able to get a couple hundred more V-Bucks for the same price.

The boosted battle pass, which boosts your ranking up to level 25, will cost you 2,800 V-Bucks. That's going to cost you $25. In this last season, Fortnite introduced the ability to gift a battle pass to another player, so long as you can pass two-factor authentication on your account.

Fortnite season 11 map changes

Perhaps the biggest question each season: What changes are coming to Fortnite's map in season 11?

So here's a refresher: The Visitor, that space-age guy from season 4, has evidently been going around the map erecting rift beacons, suggesting he may be behind all the temporal weirdness going on this season. But it's just as likely that he may be trying to fix the whole situation by patching things up.

More recently, Fortnite dataminer HYPEX managed to find files containing not one, not even two, but 12 new location names. Typically, the map has about 10-12 POIs (points of interest) like the former Tilted Towers, Dusty Depot, or Haunted Hills. But usually each season will add only a small handful of new areas, or modify those existing areas to look at least somewhat different. It's possible that these 12 files are just placeholder names, or meaningless chaff, but why include them in the update if that's the case?

What confuses me is these Leaked POIs the whole map gonna change in this event ? or are they for season 11 ???

Beachy BluffsCamp CodDirty DocksFrenzy FarmHolly HedgesLazy LakeMountain MeadowPower PlantSlurpy SwampSunny ShoresWeeping WoodsMountain Meadows

— HYPEX - Fortnite Leaks & News (@HYPEX) September 11, 2019

One popular theory is that the Visitor will be transporting the Fortnite island to a drastically different world/dimension/whatever, and that the Fortnite map will receive the biggest renovation it's seen since launch. A brand new map is indeed possible.

The Visitor has also been busy at his base at Dusty Depot, where he's now moved his two rift beacons to other locations. Most recently, he's built a rocket base out of one of Dusty Depot's three warehouses. A rocket launch back in season 4 was the first major event in Fortnite history, spurring players to keep their eyes out for future events. It's possible that Epic Games will treat the season 10-11 event as a callback to the rocket flight that started it all.

The Rocket Event is happening again but in a different scenario!! đŸ”„

How To Get the Borderlands Psycho Bundle in Fortnite

The chaos of Borderlands has made its way to the world of Fortnite. Tied to the FortniteXMayhem event, players can visit the world of Pandora via a Rift Zone that has appeared near Salty Springs. Additionally, the Psycho Bundle is not in the shop, which includes Borderland's iconic bandit enemy, a special set of Pick Axes, and a Claptrap Back Bling. Easily one of the coolest tie-ins in Fortnite's history, here's how you can obtain the Psycho Bundle.

You can obtain the Psycho Bundle by either purchasing it directly at the store for V-Bucks or by buying a copy of Borderlands 3 on the Epic Games Store. Costing 2,000 V-Bucks, you can go to the shop right now and purchase it. This is roughly $20 USD, so you can either obtain two of the $9.99 bundles or spend an extra $5 to get an additional 800 V-Bucks.

However, if you have or plan to purchase Borderlands 3 for PC, now might be the time since you'll get the bundle completely free. It doesn't matter what edition of the game you've pre-ordered or bought, so don't worry about having to purchase any of the deluxe editions. As long as you purchase the game on the same Epic account you use for Fortnite then the bundle will be unlocked.

Keep in mind, this offer is good through December 2020, so don't feel pressured to by the skins right now. This is just a nice bonus if you're a Borderlands fan and plan on purchasing the new title in a couple of weeks. Remember, you have to pre-order the PC version for this bundle to become free, so any Xbox One or PS4 users are out of luck. Sadly there is no way to earn the Psycho Bundle in-game, so you'll need to spend some real-world money.

Fortnite Season 11: Release date, battle pass, map changes, and everything else we know

Fortnite Season 11 will be upon us before we even realize it, or are we calling it Season XI? What is this, American football?

Title customs aside, you can be sure that Fortnite Season 11 will bring with it the typical bombardment of gameplay changes, a new battle pass, and maybe even a map-altering event. Where can we possibly go after a giant kaiju vs. mech fight? Let's look at everything we know about Fortnite Season 11.

(Image credit: Epic Games)

When does Fortnite Season 11 start?

We don't have an exact date for Fortnite Season 11, but typically each season will last around 10 weeks. With season 10's competitive events going until at least late September, it's looking like October 6th will mark the end date for the current season. That's backed up by a PlayStation Network listing October 6 as the end of Season 10. Our very rough, not at all scientific guess would be that Season 11 starts either immediately after or only a few days after, around October 6th - 10th.

Fortnite Season 11 battle pass cost

History tells us that the Fortnite Season 11 battle pass will cost 950 V-Bucks, and that the boosted version that automatically pushes you up 25 tiers will cost you 2,800 V-Bucks.

The smallest pack of V-Bucks you can buy in the Fortnite shop is 1,000 V-Bucks for $9.99 USD. If you want to get the boosted battle pass, you'll probably have to purchase the 2,800 V-Buck pack. We expect that there will be some sort of small sale on V-Bucks, like previous seasons, where players can buy 2,500 worth of V-Bucks and then receive 300 for free. It's a small discount, but it ain't nothing.

Fortnite Season 11 map changes and event

We currently don't know where Fortnite Season 11 will take us, especially considering that Season X has already pulled the nostalgia card with the return of fan favorite locations. Thus far, we've had Fortnite and Borderlands collide in a mashup event, Dusty Depot and Retail Row have returned to the map, and all the challenges have been a fairly typical smattering of treasure hunts and checkboxes to fill. More recently, we've seen a floating island appear in random spots around the map, featuring the old Durr Burger motel on top.

Through it all, we've had reason to believe the Visitor (yes, the time traveling dude from Season 4) is up to something. In the Season 10 trailer, we can see the time capsule that the Visitor originally came to our time in. That capsule is still stuck in the meteor above Dusty Depot, but it's been opened.

Thanks to the efforts of Fortnite data miners like FortTory, we can see that the Visitor hasn't been slacking. He's evidently searching for rocket bits from the bodies of B.R.U.T.E. mechs.

Previously, we knew that the Visitor had set up shop at Dusty Depot and built not one, but two rift beacon relays. One was sitting inside a Dusty Depot warehouse, and the other was sitting just outside on a truck bed. Both of those bad boys are gone now, and have been relocated. One now sits in a town in the desert biome (you can spot it from pretty far away thanks to the, you know, giant light beam), and the other is in the ice biome.

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It's possible that the Visitor is trying to protect the island from the meteor by futzing around with more temporal/time travel...stuff. Time will tell.

If you'll allow me to get my little tinfoil hat on here, it's also possible that Season 11 will play with some sort of theme of the corruption of time. Like...dark, nasty corruption. Take a look at this Dark Reflections pack image.

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It also comes with the text: "Did the Cube ever corrupt, or was the darkness always there? Let your dark side take control while wearing the Dark Reflections pack!"

Marketing gimmick or legit teaser? You tell me in the comments.

We'll let you know more about Season 11's biggest changes as soon as we can, so make sure to check back later.

The Alienware m15 is the newly designed 15" laptop for 2019 and weighs only 4.8lbs, which is remarkable given its payload. We reviewed the m15 and highly recommend it. This particular model pairs an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8750H 6-core processor with a very capable GeForce GTX 1060 video card with the full 6GB of VRAM (not the gimped 3GB version). It's a great matchup especially with the 15" 1080p IPS display.

We've already reviewed the original game and gave it a great 8.8/10 score. It's a very traditional RPG with fun graphics, super engaging gameplay mechanics, and enough exploration to last you dozens and dozens of hours.17% Off LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Betrayal at Cloud City 2,812-Piece Set, Now $289.99 If you're a LEGO enthusiast, and especially if you're a collector, you've undoubtedly heard of the new LEGO UCS Star Destroyer that's going to hit shelves in a few weeks.

According to our own Seth Macy, "if you have emulation worries, Sega has M2 working on the emulation for its mini console. If you're unfamiliar with M2, it handled the excellent Sega Ages Collections and also the delightful Sega 3D Classic collections for Nintendo 3DS. It would be hard to find a developer with a better pedigree to handle the software for the first-party Sega Genesis Mini."$400 Off Dell G3 15 Intel Core i5-9300H 4-Core 15.6" 1080p IPS Laptop with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Now $813.39 Use code "SAVE17"

This laptop is completely decked out for just over $800. You get the newest 9th generation quad core processor, 1080p IPS display, a whopping 512GB of fast SSD storage, and a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card that is faster than a GTX 1060.

This deal is already pretty good if it was just the HP Omen 15 Intel Core i7-9750 GeForce GTX 1660 Ti laptop, but you also get an HP OMEN 400 gaming mouse and HP OMEN 800 headset, a $100 value. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card is noticeably superior to the GeForce GTX 1060.$370 Off Alienware Aurora Intel Core i7-9700 8-Core Gaming Desktop with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Now $979.39 Use code "SAVE17"

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is faster than the GTX 1070 Ti (or comparable to the RTX 2060) and can easily hold its own in games at up to 1440p resolution. It's paired with the newest generation Intel Core i7 8-core processor, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB hard drive.

This beast of a rig should handle every game you can throw at it, including VR games. The Intel Core i7-8700 6-core processor is still one of the best processors to get for gaming and overclocks very well. It's paired with the RTX 2080 video card, which is superior to the GTX 1080 Ti (the previous generation's fastest video card).

Use code "SAVE17"

It will be very hard to build a diy around this CPU for a lower price. The Intel Core i9-900 CPU alone would run you $450. Plus you get the great 1 year Dell warranty. The Intel Core i9-9900 (and i9-900K) is the only model in Intel's mainstream lineup with both 8 cores and hyperthreading. There's no video card in here to make this a gaming rig, but you could add one yourself in the future (I'd recommend a GTX 1660 Ti to avoid swapping the hard drive).

New Price Drop and Extra 10% Off New 2019 Alienware Aurora R9 Intel Core i7-9700 8-Core Desktop with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Now $989.99 Use code "LCS10OFF"

It doesn't seem to be explicity stated on the product page, but Dell has quietly reduced the price of the new 2019 Alienware Aurora R9 desktop computer by about $150. Couple that with a 10% off coupon code that's floating around and these new desktops are currently cheaper than the older Alienware Aurora R8 models!

The new 2019 Alienware Aurora desktop boasts a completely new facelift, improved thermals, new RGB LED lighting system, toolless chassis for easy swapping of parts, and performance-minded components. You can customize this config yourself and the code will still work, but the one we provided here is a great bang for your buck. It has the capacity to handle any of your games at up to 1440p resolution and the GTX 1660 Ti is the most powerful card before you'd have to spend $100 on an 850W power supply upgrade.

New 2019 Alienware Aurora R9 Intel Core i7-9700 8-Core Gaming Desktop with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, Now $1466.99 Use code "LCS10OFF"

The new RTX 2080 SUPER is the latest generation of RTX cards and is modestly superior to the RTX 2080 (which is already more powerful than the GTX 1080 Ti). This makes the card the second most powerful card available, just lagging a little behind the $1000+ RTX 2080 Ti. It's paired with the newest generation 9th generation Intel Core i7 8-core processor.

New 2019 Alienware Aurora R9 Intel Core i7-9700 8-Core Gaming Desktop with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and GeForce RTX 2070, Now $1286.99 Use code "LCS10OFF"

Here's one last config I'd recommend, especially for those who don't require a rig that can drive 4K gaming. The RTX 2070 video card is superior to the GTX 1080. It's still one of the fastest video card around, but this config still manages to stay below $1300.

$530 Off Slim Alienware m17 Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 17.3" 1080p IPS Gaming Laptop with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, GeForce RTX 2060 for $1078.99 Use code "SAVE17"

The Alienware m17 is the new 2019 Alienware 17" model and weighs only 5.8lbs. The RTX 2060 video card is considerably more powerful than the GTX 1060 (and also a bit more powerful than the GTX 1660 Ti).

How to get the Major Lazer skin in Fortnite

how to get major lazer skin in fortnite majorlazerfortnite

On August 22, Epic Games will begin a Fortnite collaboration with the EDM trio Major Lazer, following in the footsteps of previous events such as its Marshmello concert. The event will bring with it a special Major Lazer skin for Fortnite, and you'll want to get your hands on it as soon as it is made available. Here is how to get the Major Lazer skin in Fortnite.

When can you get the skin?

The Fortnite item shop will update at 5 p.m PT/8 p.m ET on August 22, and this is when you can expect to be able to purchase the skin. It is always possible that Epic Games will opt to offer it sooner, but this has been the approach the company has been using thus far.

How much will it cost?

The highest-cost skin in the Fortnite shop currently costs 1,500 V-Bucks. It's predicted that the Major Lazer skin will also cost this amount, which translates to about $15. V-Bucks can be purchased in packs of 1,000, meaning you'll also have some left over to spend on other digital goodies. As we'll discuss below, some of those for sale will likely be other Major Lazer digital items.

What will the skin look like?

The Major Lazer skin won't be based directly on the members of the group, but rather an animated series they produced. With a beret and sunglasses, you'll look like a warlord ready to kick some ass, with a few microphones strapped to your chest. It has an 80's action movie vibe that we're all about, and you can see a sneak peek in Epic Games' tweet below.

What else will be available?

Data-miners have already uncovered a few other goodies you can get alongside the skin. This includes a dance emote, back bling, and a pickaxe. The dance can be seen below, and we're not going to lie: It is pretty funky.

Naturally, you'll need to get it all if you want to show your true Major Lazer fandom. The price of these could get pretty expensive, however, so make sure you have a surplus of V-Bucks if you plan on getting everything. You might even get special bonuses for free later on if the Marshmello skin is any indication.
