  1. The smartwatch and wearables industry is growing at a fast pace and there was bound to be an affordable smartwatch that can do everything that an Apple Watch can do. However, not all smartwatches are as fluid as the Apple Watch or deliver an experience that keeps users loyal. However, if you are looking for an affordable smartwatch, the Amazfit Verge is the closest bet that offers GPS navigation, fitness tracking and notification management for Rs 12,000. The smartwatch category is flooded with numerous options, but does the Amazfit Verge perform better than the rest of them? Let's find out. Design Being a budget smartwatch, the Verge does not offer the same build quality as a premium smartwatch. It's got an all plastic body with one plastic button on the upper right corner. It's light and does not offer that feel good factor you would want from a watch. The red button is used for navigating apps and selecting options. However, the button is not accurate as we would have to often click the button multiple times to get the OS to respond. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch comes with a proprietary charger which we feel was not the best design option to go with. When done charging, sometimes we would have to yank out the smartwatch hard, fearing we may just break the strap or the charger. We would also have to place the smartwatch in the current orientation as it does not have charging pins on both sides of the charger. The circular dial on the Amazfit Verge houses an AMOLED display which is bright enough to be clear and visible in bright sunlight. The display is good enough to read notifications and text which is a plus to have on a smartwatch. There are 10 watch faces you can choose from which can be changed from the watch itself or from the app. Having said that, the watch-faces are quite rudimentary and does not offer many customisations. Features The one thing I love about the Apple Watch is the ability to view notifications and take appropriate action. For example, I can reply to WhatsApp messages, text messages and send voice notes without ever opening my smartphone. On the Amazfit Verge, you do get notifications, but you cannot reply to text messages or even read emails. There's no support for third-party apps which makes it quite disappointing, The only apps you can use are the ones that come pre-installed i.e. heart rate reader, timer, stopwatch and that's about it. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Amazfit Verge has an integrated mic and speaker. This can be used for making and receiving calls straight on the smartwatch. In order for this feature to work, you need to have your smartphone near you. You can even use the stereo speaker to listen to music as it has 4GB of onboard memory (2GB more storing music). In our experience, the feature worked well especially when making calls. Callers did notice that I sounded like I was using an earpiece. However, we would have loved to see the Amazfit Verge would ring at the same time as the smartphone. Call notifications were sometimes delayed and in that time we could just pick up the call on the smartphone. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a call feature on the smartphone if we don't get notified on time. Performance Being a smartwatch, it is able to track your activity and exercises just like any other smartwatch however not all is rosy in this category either. We found the footstep tracking to be inaccurate when calculating steps taken manually and comparing it with the readings. In fact, we tried to test the accuracy by wearing the smartwatch for the first time on our drive to work. The Amazfit Verge tracked 200 steps while we were driving indicating that it isn't as reliable as budget fitness bands. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to GPS tracking, the smartwatch was accurate at most occasions; however, we found it to be off by 200 meters sometimes in select areas and sometimes off by a kilometre. This may not bother a casual runner. However, it can be quite disadvantageous for hikers and outdoor runners. The other problem with the GPS feature is its inability to start up quickly. We were ready to go for a walk and had to wait for the GPS to start working. The Amazfit Verge takes particularly long to catch the GPS signal which can be frustrating if you want to just get going with your workout. The heart rate monitor is accurate on the Amzfit Verge as the results were almost identical with the Apple Watch Series 4 and Omron Pulse Oximeter. The Amazfit Verge has the ability to track different types of workouts and can automatically detect your activity. This is a nifty feature that works on the Amazfit Verge as advertised. However, you cannot track multiple workouts at the same time as you will need to end each activity tracking mode before starting another. This basically does not allow a user to track different activities in a single workout which can be a bit frustrating when exercising. You don't want to keep looking at your smartwatch before you start a new exercise as we're already in the flow and don't want to stop. The Final Say The Amazfit Verge offers every feature you want to see on a specs sheet. However, it simply doesn't cut it. Just because it has all the features doesn't mean it's a great smartwatch. It needs to be executed properly for cohesive user experience. From delayed notifications to a less than an appealing design choice, the Amazit Verge is not something we expected. The operating system needs to be more refined and needs to be able to handle more than one app at a time. Activity tracking also needs improvement which is one of the salient features of a smartwatch. Priced at Rs 12,000, it's suitable for people who are looking for a smartwatch packed with features and can sacrifice the overall user experience.
  2. We've already seen a ton of leaks in the last few weeks about the Galaxy S10 and the wait is finally coming to an end. Samsung has announced the launch of S10 today at its Unpacked event in San Francisco. This year's launch is extremely important for the company since the S-series was launched exactly 10 years ago. In the last decade, the S-lineup has played a pivotal role in making Samsung one of the largest smartphone makers in the world. The series has successfully defeated LG, HTC, Sony, and even Google's offerings in the past. To make things even more interesting, Samsung has launched three variants of the phone instead of the usual duo. The S10 is available in three options: the S10e, S10, and S10+. The S10e is being targeted as a slightly cheaper variant of the flagship and it incorporates a majority of the elder sibling's offerings. The S10 is the main flagbearer and lastly, the S10+ has a few more power features along with a larger display. The flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole front camera that Samsung calls Infinity-O. The proximity and ambient light sensor are now located behind the display. Instead of Samsung Experience UI, the new S10 ships with a new skin called One UI. It is built around focus blocks and has segregated viewing to provide more productivity options and use maximum area of the display. Under the hood is an Exynos 9820 (Snapdragon 855 in the US) processor, coupled along with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. At the rear is a triple camera setup consisting of a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 12-megapixel dual aperture sensor with optical image stabilization, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. On the front is a single "dual-pixel" sensor that is located inside the display punch-hole. The software is capable of recognising 30 scenes and adjusts the capturing settings accordingly. For authentication, Samsung is now relying on an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as face unlock. Backing these internals is a 3400mAh battery and the company has added a host of new charging features. This includes wireless PowerShare that can reverse charge another device. In simpler words, the phone can be used as a portable power bank to wirelessly charge compatible accessories like Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. It'll be available in Prism White and Prism Black. Coming to the S10e, it houses the same processor as the S10 along with 6GB RAM and a slightly smaller 5.8-inch AMOLED display. Even the battery has been reduced down to 3100mAh and it doesn't get the 12-megapixel telephoto lens on the rear. The S10e will be available in Prism White colour only. The S10+, on the other hand, gets a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and has a dual camera set up on the front in a wider punch-hole. Even the battery has been boosted to 4100mAh and will be available in an additional Prism Green colour. It shares the same processor, but gets two variants in memory: 8GB+128GB and 12GB+1TB (yes, 1 T!). The 1TB storage variant is available in Ceramic Black colour option. Samsung has also announced the availability of Galaxy Ecosystem, and it consists of Galaxy Buds, Wireless Combo Charge power bank, and Wireless Charger Duo (charger). The brand is also partnering with Marvel and selling "Galaxy Friends" covers that have a design of Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain America, and the Avengers. Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e will be available in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Blue and Flamingo Pink. Galaxy S10+ will also be available in two premium Ceramic models: Ceramic Black and Ceramic White. Preorders for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e begin tomorrow, February 21, 2019. Pricing starts at $899.99 for Galaxy S10, $999.00 for Galaxy S10+ and $749.99 for Galaxy S10e. India pricing and availability will be known soon.

  4. Video games may change as we know it, thanks to a new space that is going to be occupied by Google and even Apple. Companies like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony need to be on the fence, as Google is about to enter the highly profitable video game business with Project Stream. Game Developer's Conference is about to take place next month and Google is said to unveil its gaming streaming service. The invitations were sent out for the March 19 keynote, however, did not mention the topic of discussion. © Gooogle The gaming unit is going to be building on the success of Project Stream where games will be running on the cloud and streamed directly to a PC, Tablet, TV or anything that has a display. The experience, however, still remains to be seen as the games will be streamed, and different types of internet connections may affect the overall experience. Laggy connections are a major concern when streaming games which could be a huge factor when considering a streaming service. The new streaming service is said to compete directly with Steam, the Epic Games Store and even consoles. Google is not the only tech giant that is looking into the video games industry, rumours suggest that even Apple is also looking at announcing its own version of a gaming console or a subscription service. © Gooogle Currently, Sony's streaming service called PlayStation Now offers 650 games on the PlayStation 4 which includes classic and catalogue titles. Microsoft is also looking into the game streaming, as the company has started public trials for Project xCloud which will let gamers stream Xbox One games to computer, phones and tablets. Would you stream games on your Tablet, PC or Smartphone? Let us know in the comments if Google's new project excites you. Source: Fortune
  5. The iPhone is the most selling product every year and the small line-up of phones has a huge market share in the developed markets. Hence, it's no surprise that rumours mills are always churning out something new. The 2019 iPhones are expected to launch in September, but we're already hearing a lot about them. Analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo are known to be highly reliable and have a track record of revealing accurate reports over the past few years. Now, Kuo has released an analyst note that contains his predictions about the upcoming iPhones. The predictions have corroborating reports stating that Apple could announce three new iPhones this year. © Apple According to him, the new iPhones shall have the same screen sizes and the notch isn't going anywhere as well. The iPhone XR successor is expected to get an OLED display, instead of the current LCD. The phones shall also have an upgraded Face ID array, bigger batteries, and a frosted glass casing. Another major update will be a triple rear camera setup on one of the phones. Previous Bloomberg reports have also said that Apple is testing the new camera array, and given the current trends of the market, it makes more sense. Huawei's flagships have been a killer in the segment, and even Samsung has been trying to catch-up. © Imgur The upcoming iPhones are also expected to get an ultra-wideband radio for indoor navigation and bilateral wireless charging. The latter lets you charge other smaller devices wirelessly via your iPhone. This shall come in extremely handy to quickly charge AirPods on the go. In fact, even the AirPods are going to get a successor this year and the AirPods 2 are reported to sport better health tracking, finely tuned audio output, as well as better battery life. Even the much-awaited AirPower charging mat shall be finally coming this year. © Apple Lastly, the new iPhones will continue using the Lightning connector, instead of opting for USB-C. This may be good news for many, but those who already use the new MacBook or iPad Pro know how annoying it can get to carry separate charging wires everywhere. What do you think about the new iPhones? Let us know in the comments section below! Source: 9to5Mac
  6. After the infamous bout between the Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and the 'Notorious' Conor McGregor, which got out of hand within two minutes of McGregor tapping out as Nurmagomedov leapt over the octagon and attacked two of McGregor's men. The incident led to the two rivals getting into a lot of trouble, as Khabib was banned for nine months with a hefty fine of $500,000 while McGregor was suspended for six months with a $50,000 fine off his match fee by the NAC for their roles in the UFC 229 post-fight melee. However, it seems that while Nurmagomedov is spending his days of asylum in quiet, McGregor is out already searching for his next prey. The name of McGregor's potential next target is Kelvin Gastelum, the new UFC middleweight champion who won the title by forfeit after his opponent and former champion Robert Whittaker was ruled out of the main event of UFC 234 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia after being diagnosed with a hernia and had to undergo immediate surgery. McGregor did not approve of the fact that Gastelum was practically gifted the title without even throwing a single punch and showed his disapproval on Twitter in the most 'Conor McGregor' way he could: Why is that worm holding the 185lb belt? There are worms crawling on his skin! It was absolutely ludicrous to even consider allowing him to compete. Let alone now walk around the arena shaking our fans hands. Someone sort this, this instant. And sterilize that belt. Immediately. — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) February 10, 2019 Calling Gastelum a 'worm', McGregor took a jab at the champion after he was trolled online for having some dermatologic issues. Formerly working as a bounty hunter, the current UFC middleweight champion, Kelvin Gastelum fought his first professional battle in Mexico in 2010 against Jose Sanchez, who submitted to Gastelum after a barrage of punches destroyed his face. He made his UFC debut in January 2013 during the Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs Team Sonnen and went on to win the Ultimate Fighter contest to become the youngest ever to do while having a brand new UFC contract under his belt. Ever since his debut, Gastelum has entered the ring a total of 19 times out of which he's won 16 and lost the remaining three. After the McGregor tweet, the fighter in Gastelum confidently replied to the notorious one: Come take it off.... Little prick! https://t.co/823ptmymr8 — #OnAmission4Gold (@KelvinGastelum) February 10, 2019 Is this the comeback fight we are looking forward to as Conor's return is due in March? McGregor's provocative tweet for the champ comes after he commended Anderson Silva's losing efforts in the battle against Israel Adesanya which replaced the Gastelum-Whittaker bout Down Under. A couple of weeks ago, McGregor also tickled the thought of fighting 'The Cowboy' Donald Cerrone after his impressive knockout victory over Alexander Hernandez in January.

Kartik's Struggle With Breaking The Stereotype Attached With Him Now when you think of Kartik Aaryan, you instantly relate him to relatable movies like 'Pyaar Ka Punchnaama' and of course, 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety'. Kartik is aware and proud of the image that has catapulted him to fame but he will talk about how consciously he now wants to focus on different genres which don't categorise him in one category.

Kriti Talks About The Anxiety Of Being In The Big League Kriti Sanon will address the issue of what actually makes her insecure and the drive that keeps her running in the league of Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone. “There is so much more that I want to do but haven't gotten the opportunity. The deepest insecure moment is when you don't have the opportunity but have the drive”, she said. View this post on Instagram Life is all about knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Hold on tight to make sure you have no regrets. And after a point, Just LET GO. To see whether it was actually worth holding on to in the first place! #RandomThoughts #RandomMe ð¦ @graziaindia Feb issue!! ðð» Shot by @rohanshrestha A post shared by Kriti (@kritisanon) on Feb 4, 2019 at 10:45pm PST 3. Kriti Speaks About Life Post 'Bareily Ki Barfi' KJo will ask her about the success she tasted after the movie won her major fame and many accolades. Kriti will talk about how she was widely accepted and perceived to be a good actor after her movie became a hit and turned the tables for her. Well, for more dope on how they deal with nepotism and what Kartik actually feels for Sara Ali Khan, you need to stay tuned till 9 pm we guess.
  8. Following the first leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 a few weeks ago, more images have surfaced of the flagship and details about the phone are slowly getting clearer. We're just a month away from the launch but now high-quality photos of the device have popped up online, thanks to the German blog AllAboutSamsung. We've seen numerous render leaks and the prototypes come very close to them. The bezels have been snipped even further and there are radical changes on the back as well as the front. Samsung was the only mainstream brand to not embrace the notch last year and it intends to continue the same for its flagship. © AllAboutSamsung Instead of a notch, Samsung is embedding a punch-hole camera on the front. The “Infinity-O” hole-punch display, as they're officially called, first showed up in Samsung's A8 phones, which were only released in China. What we are looking at here are the prototypes for the 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ having a different punch-hole cut-out. The S10+ has a dual front-facing camera setup, while the S10 has a singular module. The back of the phone has a huge camera arrangement, with three lenses and LED flash and Samsung's typical PPG heart rate sensor. It's surprising that even the smaller S10 has three cameras, given that the S9+ has two cameras compared to the S9's single camera. It's possible Samsung could go with a dual camera setup on the S10 Lite variant. © AllAboutSamsung Lastly, the bottom of the phone has a USB-C charging port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This'll make Samsung among the few who still find space to house the ancient port and many users out there are going to be extremely happy about it. For now, we've seen the ceramic black and ceramic white colour options and rumours suggest we'll be seeing more options at launch. A few reports earlier in the week also mentioned the new phones will come with a Samsung Blockchain Keystore app. Ethereum has been listed as a supported cryptocurrency and it will have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ERC20 and Bitcoin Cash as well at launch. © Twitter / VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled in San Francisco on February 20th, which is less than a month away. There have also been leaks suggesting the price of the phones and Samsung is trying its level best to keep them consistent with last year's offerings. What are your thoughts on the initial design of the phone?
  9. The much-awaited sequel and the final instalment in the 'Don' series is finally coming to life thanks to Farhan Akhtar, who made an official announcement and put all fans in a frenzy. © Instagram Here's all that we know about the grand finale of the series: 1. The Title - Unlike the first two instalments, this one won't merely be called 'Don 3'. As per numerous reports, this movie will be called 'Don: The Final Chapter' which means, there will be no more speculation of any more sequels and the story and fate of the 'Don' will be locked in this one. 2. No PC in it - Sadly, our favourite 'junglee billi' and Roma, the character which was wonderfully essayed by Priyanka Chopra will not be there, or at least will not be played by her because she is not a part of this final project. 3. Farhan will be a part of the cast - In the second instalment, we saw Hrithik Roshan having a guest appearance and in this one, the director himself will play the role of a cop. 4. SRK's rumoured exit from another project to take this one - While there has been no confirmation on this information, but many reports are observing that SRK apparently walked out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic to take up this sequel. A crypted tweet from the producer also further fuelled these rumours of the King Khan backing out. Most times the difference between Success and Failure is not a better Idea or ability but the courage to BET on the idea, PRE PLAN to perfection, take the calculated RISK and then STICK WITH IT. — Ronnie Screwvala (@RonnieScrewvala) January 19, 2019 It is believed that the project will go on the floors in mid-2019 and will be one action-packed treat for all SRK and 'Don' fans.
  10. Xiaomi has been constantly launching new phones in the Indian market and its aggressive stance has already won it the number one spot in terms of sales. The brand has managed to create a name for itself in the budget and midrange segment and now intends to double down on its efforts. 2018 witnessed the launch of new phones from every brand, every couple of months. The Redmi Note X Pro line-up has been extremely successful in the country, followed by Android One powered Mi AX series. Now, we're looking forward to the Redmi Note 7, and Note 7 Pro. The company also has a third device in the making, more on that later. © Xiaomi / Redmi Note 7 Redmi is now a separate sub-brand of Xiaomi and its first phone is the Redmi Note 7 that has already been launched in China. The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ (2340x1080 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC paired with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM options along with 32GB and 64GB storage options. On the rear is a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor along with a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. The front has a 13-megapixel shooter for selfies. It's powered by a 4000mAh battery along with Quick Charge 4 support. © Xiaomi / Redmi Note 7 The Redmi Note 7 Pro hasn't been officially announced yet, but we do know it'll pack a 48-megapixel lens on the rear and will be powered by Snapdragon 675 SoC. There is a possibility Xiaomi may use an AMOLED panel on this phone. Lastly, a third phone dubbed the "Redmi Go" shall be launching along with the other two. According to leakster Ishan (https://twitter.com/ishanagarwal24/status/1086550767014760448), the three phones shall be launched together in the first quarter of 2019. While the information on Redmi Go's specifications is scarce, it's sure to be an entry-level phone running on Android Go. © Xiaomi / Redmi Note 7 Android Go is a highly optimized OS built for phones with less than 1GB RAM. The Go edition also comes with a flurry of new optimized Google apps that are light on both memory and storage. These include Google Go, Google Assistant Go, and Files Go, among many others. Google Go redesigns Google Search, reducing the search-as-you-type app to its bare essentials; this Lite version weighs in at less than 5MB in size. © YouTube The Redmi Note 7 currently retails for CNY 999 (Rs 10,500) in China for the 3GB+32GB variant and CNY 1,199 (Rs 12,000) for 4GB+64GB option. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is rumoured to cost around Rs 16,000 and the Redmi Go is expected to cost around Rs 5,000. Keep in mind, these are early reports and not the official pricing
  11. We finally got to see new details on Mortal Kombat 11 as it was revealed during a live event last night. The event showed off never seen before gameplay, new character additions and some notable changes that will come to the popular fighting game series. Here's everything we know so far: New Characters Apart from the classic characters that will be making a return, we saw a few new characters that will be a part of the new roster. Classic characters like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, and Sonya Blade will make a return and even missing characters from the MK10 like Baraka and Skarlet will be a part of the roster. We will see two new characters i.e. Geras and Kronika who will have their own set of powers. © NeatherRealm/Warner Brothers Geras will have the ability to control time and can also summon objects made of stone and sand. Time controlling powers will also let him teleport and trap his enemies. He can also stop or rewind time while holding the opponent is a frozen state. You can see all his powers in action in the reveal trailer below: Kronika has been “running the show since the first Mortal Kombat,” but had to intervene when Raiden altered the timeline in the previous game. We don't know for now whether she will be a playable character or not as of now. NetherRealm also teased another possible returning character, Kabal, who debuted in 'Mortal Kombat 3'. Gameplay © NeatherRealm The fighting mechanics on the game will be different from previous games and can be traced back to MK9. The bottom corners of the screen will now have two meters i.e one for offensive moves and one for defence. Players will be able to build up these meters and unleash Fatal Blows once the meter is full. Also, if players are able to perform a perfect block, the character will break out of an attack directly into a combo. Story The new story will pick up after 'Mortal Kombat 9' and the trailer shows a brutal version of Raiden removing Shinnok's head. Then, Kronika appears and uses her time manipulation powers to pit Mortal Kombatants against different versions of themselves—young, old, customized, et cetera. Launch Date & PC Requirements 'Mortal Kombat 11' launches a worldwide on April 21, with a multiplayer beta kicking off on March 28 and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. What's cool is that PC gamers do not require high-end hardware. It will cost Rs 1,349 on steam while the premium edition will cost Rs 2,049.

  13. Now that Season 4 on PUBG mobile is coming to an end in two days, the Battle Royale game is all set to bring new content for the upcoming season. © MensXP Tencent Gaming, the company behind the mobile version of PUBG is yet to release the official patch noted, however, information about the new season has been leaked. The new update is expected very soon and here's everything you need to know about PUBG Mobile Season 5: 1. Fire Theme Leaked stuff for season 5 with background leaks from Reddit credit to @minisideman pic.twitter.com/o9voaWBwPE — PubgmCommunity (@PubgmCommunity) January 10, 2019 Images for the content that will be used in Season 5 have been leaked, even though it is yet to be made official. Some images of cosmetics, weapon skins and unlockable items have been leaked. One of the images shows a burning forest, which indicates that the game may follow a theme of fire. Now that the winter and snow theme has been used in the previous update, this speculation sounds quite plausible. 2. New Outfits Also clothing that most likely will be coming along with season 5 pic.twitter.com/OwvN3R5yvA — PubgmCommunity (@PubgmCommunity) January 10, 2019 One of the more prominent leaks surrounding PUBG Mobile Season 5 has to do with some exciting outfits. There's going to be a birthday cake costume (sounds outlandish), a full-gold bodysuit and some traditional Japanese outfits. 3. New Weapon Skins More leaked skins. pic.twitter.com/IvfiL8DMXe — PubgmCommunity (@PubgmCommunity) January 12, 2019 Along with new outfits, weapon skins are also going to be a part of the new update. This includes gold skins for UMP and AKM, a black and white dragon skin for the Kar98k, and more. Skins for vehicles are also finding their way online where we will see an ice cream truck skin for the Volkswagen van. 4. A New Weapon Here is 0.10.5 update preview 1. New Royale Pass Season 5 2. MK47 Mutant 3. Laser Sight 4. Vikendi Custom Room Other small changes like Old voice back and now you can mute spawn island broadcast etc. pic.twitter.com/Ihyz94Aiiz — Shahid Khan (@shahidkhan1137) January 12, 2019 We will finally see the addition of a new weapon in the next update. The Season 5 will bring the MK47 Mutant assault rifle which has already been available in PUBG PC. © Twitter The patch that will add Season 5 to the game will be called PUBG Mobile Patch 0.10.5, however, details about its availability are not known yet. However, if previous updates are any indication, the new season will start to roll out a few days after Season 4 ends i.e. January 17th.
  14. Samsung is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone that will likely be called the Galaxy S10. It will debut a week ahead of MWC on February 20th. The invites for the 'Unpacked' event have been sent out to media and it will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. © Samsung The company has decided to skip the Mobile World Conference and it is unlikely that we will see any other major announcements from the South Korean giant that week. It's not the first time Samsung has skipped the conference, as in 2017, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 at a separate event in March. © Twitter/Even Blass It has been long rumoured that Samsung will launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 i,e, the S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite/E. Previous rumours have suggested that either all or some of these devices will come with Samsung's Infinity-O display, better known as the punch-hole display. The display will basically have a very small circular cutout that will house the front-facing camera. It will be at the top of the screen and looks similar to a punch hole on a paper. We can also see a clue about the new display in the invite, where the middle bezel is extremely thin and will be all around the phone. © Twitter/Venya Geskin1 Additional information from leaks suggests that Samsung may add a third camera to the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus and may sport a wide-angle lens just like the LGv40 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Of course, since these are all based on leaks, we can only be sure once Samsung makes it official at the February launch event. What Else Can We Expect? Samsung has already confirmed that it's working on a foldable smartphone and there's a good chance that we may see it unveiled at the “Galaxy Unpacked” event. It has already been confirmed by Samsung that the foldable smartphone will launch in the first half of 2019. We could also hear about the Galaxy Home smart speaker that is powered by Samsung's Bixby digital assistant. The smart speaker was unveiled at the Galaxy Note 9 launch however we haven't heard anything about it ever since.
  15. Recently, actor Ranveer Singh turned cupid for Sara and Kartik, after she confessed on 'Koffee With Karan 6' that she has a huge crush on Kartik Aaryan and wanted to date him. After Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan, looks like things are now brewing between Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal. View this post on Instagram The Diwali dazzle continues on the Koffee couch with the dashing duo of @katrinakaif & @varundvn! #KoffeeWithKaran #KoffeeWithVarun #KoffeeWithKatrina A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Nov 8, 2018 at 2:16am PST Do you remember the time, when Katrina Kaif revealed on KWK that she wanted to work with Vicky Kaushal, as she felt the two would look good together? When Karan Johar told Vicky on the show, he pretended to faint in disbelief. But, during a recently held award show when he met Katrina, he made sure that he made good use of the opportunity and her previous confession. View this post on Instagram There's a bromance brewing next week on #KoffeeWithKaran with @ayushmannk and @vickykaushal09. #KoffeeWithVicky #KoffeeWithAyushmann A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 9:25am PST Vicky asks Katrina when the two were onstage, "Why don't you find a nice boy like Vicky Kaushal and get married to him?" He further explained, "The season of weddings is on, so I thought, you too would want to do the same and so I thought I ought to ask you." Katrina, pretending that she didn't get his point, asks him "What?" and to this Kaushal asks her, "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi?" with the song playing in the background. Katrina couldn't help but blush and replied, "Himmat nahi hai (I don't have the courage)." Instagram But, that's not the best part. All of this was happening in front of Salman Khan and his priceless reaction that was caught on camera, has left the internet in splits. Check out his epic reaction here.

On the work front, Vicky Kaushal is gearing up for his next movie, 'Uri' which is based on Indian Army's surgical strikes. Katrina and Salman are busy shooting for 'Bharat'. Karan Johar and the sixth season of his show 'Koffee With Karan' should take immense pride in turning matchmaker for Bollywood celebrities. Karan's rapid fire questions not only compelled celebrities to be at their candid best, but also helped break the ice between the younger crop of actors.
  16. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
  17. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have been trending in the last few quarters. Similarly, the hot word back in 2014-15 was "wearable". This included any gadget we could wear -- smartwatch, smart band, spectacles, ring, clothing, shoes, and more. For decades we've seen sci-fi movies featuring wearable technology, and so we expected the boom to be huge. But the segment has received a lukewarm response and is still counted as a niche category. Remember the time when tablets were a huge deal and expected to take over the world? Sure, tablets too are selling in millions, but these sales are nothing when compared to smartphones. Phones have been leading the consumer market forever now, and there's no sign of stopping it. What is stopping wearables from gaining traction? When will this segment become mainstream? And, who are the current industry leaders? Here's everything you need to know! 1. Very Limited Practicality © Samsung Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy S3 Frontier are among the most powerful smartwatches, but in day-to-day life, you barely find any use. Except for passive health tracking and HR, you get notifications delivered to your wrist. That's it. If you go for the Apple Watch LTE variant, independent calling is possible, but that's exactly why it's niche market. Nobody wants to spend so much on a "smartwatch" when they have an equivalent phone and can spend the same amount on a luxury watch, that commands more class. © Apple There is no doubt that they have made daily tracking very simple and it's extremely helpful for fitness freaks, but when the same functionality can be ported to a "band" as well, then what's the use of a smartwatch? Remember Google Glass? It was a smart spectacle that had a small HUD (Heads Up Display) along with a camera. It failed. While the failure was because of different reasons, consumers just couldn't understand the practical use of wearing a small display right in front of you. 2. They Are Too Expensive © BCCL The Apple Watch Series 4 will easily cost you an upward of Rs 40,000. For the same price, you can get a flagship OnePlus 6T, or some more and even an iPhone. Why would one want to spend so much on a timepiece that has limited functionality when a complete phone is available? Even if we consider other gadgets like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Frontier, it costs at least Rs 25,000. On the other hand, smart bands cost just a fraction of the amount and are capable of detecting HR. Companies like Fitbit are concentrating on health and fitness, while WearOS OEMs are very confused about what they want to do. This leaves behind an enormous vacuum in the pricing slabs, there are a lot of affordable smart bands, and ultra-expensive smartwatches, but no middle ground. 3. Stupidly Low Battery Life © iGeeksBlog Even after buying an Apple Watch, you'll have to charge it every day. Same applies to almost every other smartwatch out there, exceptions being the Amazfit Pace and Fitbit Versa. But, while the two offer battery life, they offer no feature except for notifications and passive health tracking. Even though the charging time is considerably less, the point is about having to remove the watch, plug it in and follow the routine every day. Also, you won't be able to go more than a day without the charger. 4. They Need To Stop Looking Nerdy © BCCL Apple Watch has a class-leading design, so does the Samsung Galaxy S3 Frontier and Gear Sport. Fitbits are built for intensive activities and are more on the ergonomic end. Fossil does a splendid job as well. But, pretty much all other WearOS devices suck in terms of design. If you want to make a segment mainstream, stop making it look like it's built for a niche crowd - "the nerds". The phase is gone, a normal consumer wants flaunting rights. And, rectangular plastic design's are not helping the cause. 5. Privacy Matters © Mashable There have been a lot of concerns regarding one's privacy around wearables. Like I said earlier, the Google Glass has been mired in controversy thanks to the little camera it had. Nobody wants a real-time camera watching or recording them without permission, especially when an individual is in control of it. Snapchat's Spectacles are built for exactly the same audience, record as much as you can, but it has an LED on the front to notify others. There have been multiple incidents when hackers got into wearable devices and collected GPS as well as health data of soldiers who resided in an army base. Germany has barred the sale of activity trackers to children and more concerns are always brewing.
  18. We have always maintained that we like Sidharth Malhotra's shoe game. He just reminded us once again why. He stepped out wearing a pair of sneakers that made us nostalgic and reminded us of the last page of our notebooks from school. Confused? Take a look! © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Okay, you probably can't see it all the way from there, so here are the actual shoes. Sid is wearing Men's White Graffiti Canvas Sneakers from Vetements. © Lyst Don't they remind you of everything you scribbled on the last page of your school notebook? Right from the rants, to fun facts, crush's names, tic-tac-toe, to the famous game of 'FLAMES'? © Lyst The graffiti on the sneakers make them a super statement piece, that is perfect to be worn on a date or a dinner, or just a fun outing with homies. However, their price is not this 'casual'. They're worth INR 55,000. © Lyst Such a fun pair! We want 'em.
  19. In December 2009, when James Cameron's 'Avatar' hit theatres, it smashed all previous grossing records. Till date, this science-fiction holds the record for being the world's highest grossing movie of all time. The film took 15 years for completion and also made James Cameron one of the greatest film-makers of all time. © Lightstorm Entertainment The director had once told Discovery that he sat down in 1995 to write a film that would push the CG art! And so it did. 'Avatar' redefined modern film-making and set benchmarks for world cinema. It gave the audience a completely new perspective about the modern-day filmography. © Lightstorm Entertainment Years later, when moviegoers have got their hands onto the IMAX and 5D experience of movie viewing, all they crave for is newness with every single film they watch. In times, when we have got the best from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and especially when fans have gotten deeply used to watching the next versions of their superheroes with every passing year, what should one expect from James Cameron's upcoming 'Avatar 2'? Almost a decade later, are fans still waiting for the film's sequel? Read below to understand more. Well, let us tell you that James Cameron's team is working day and night to bring the unseen from the world of Pandora on the silver screen back again. The franchise makers are taking their time as they have plans to make 'Avatar 2' a much grander experience than its previous instalment. The maestro recently dropped a major announcement saying that actors have wrapped up their shoot for the upcoming sequels i.e 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. The cast of these sequels include actors Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Matt Gerald, and Sigourney Weaver. Academy Award winner Kate Winslet is the newest addition to the cast. Though we were only expecting 'Avatar 2' to be under production, the announcement of the third part of the film happened to be a complete surprise. The principal photography of these two films has been completed; the actors have been working over the same for the past two years. Now, the toughest part of the production process has just begun for James Cameron's team. For the same, the director will now sit with experts to look after the CGI and other technical aspects. © YouTube/Discovery The stakes are already too high on these sequels and the production team would not leave any stones unturned, considering the previous records set by the film. 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm have already announced the release dates of the two films. 'Avatar 2' will be releasing on December 18, 2020, whereas 'Avatar 3' will hit the theatres on December 17, 2021. That's not all to it! Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, who has worked earlier with James Cameron in his iconic film 'Titanic', did a very tough training for a few scenes in the film. © Pinterest Free-diver Kirk Krach (a world champion) was hired as an underwater instructor by the film's team. From him, Kate Winslet learned to hold her breath underwater and nailed it by holding it for more than seven minutes. Apparently, the actress visibly turned blue! That's so Pandoran! Now, this is a sure shot reason why one must look forward to the film's sequels. It is time to sit back, wait for the film and thank the director for finally giving wings to 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. It is better late than never!

  21. When athletes with common interests get on the same roster and play for years together, the chemistry ought to get beyond the field of play. A bromance so to speak - a little more than friendship but not too much. Well, you get the idea. Here's look at some of the biggest bromances in the world of sports: 1. Hardik Pandya & MS Dhoni Hardik Pandya has openly said it time and again that former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is his favourite Indian cricketer of all time. After recovering from a lower-back injury, Pandya spoke out about how Dhoni completely changed his life for the better. “He never changed my game,” Pandya told timesnownews.com. “Dhoni was someone who was very important to me as I was raw, I was learning… and he gave me the time to understand my role.” Dhoni, on the other hand, has not been shy to show his love for the all-rounder either. Spotted together at the wedding reception of Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, the duo was found posing like best buddies for the paparazzi.

Sergio Aguero & Lionel Messi Starting out as two of the youngest players of the Argentina team, Messi and Aguero were destined to form a bonding over an extremely unfortunate incident. When Aguero's childhood friend and teammate Emiliano Molina passed away in a car crash, it was Messi who broke the news to him and presented himself as the shoulder for him to cry on. “They hugged and cried together for quite a while, supporting each other despite the anguish that gripped them,” journalist Daniel Fresco told goal.com. As they say, “friendships bound by sorrow, last forever.” © Reuters This, along with the fact that Lio Messi is the godfather to Aguero's son, Benjamin, makes this bromance real. 3. Rafael Nadal & Roger Federer: View this post on Instagram @rafaelnadal and @rogerfederer have confirmed they will reunite for #TeamEurope's 2019 #LaverCup campaign in Geneva. Tickets will go on sale in early February. Register at lavercup.com to receive updates. #Fedal A post shared by Laver Cup (@lavercup) on Dec 13, 2018 at 6:25am PST After years of epic matchups and probably the biggest tennis rivalry of this generation, the two legends show very few signs of slowing down. The thing about great athletes is that they don't shy away from recognising greatness when they see it, and that's exactly what happened between Federer and Nadal. While one is all about finesse and dexterity, the other is about brute force. Even with completely different profiles, the true Nadal-Federer duo could be witnessed during the 2017 Laver Cup finals when the two titans were seen on the same side of the net. “Everyone was waiting for this moment since they announced this event is going to happen. This is the time. So I think it's almost like a celebration of tennis,” Czech tennis star Tomas Berdych told The Telegraph. The fact that Nadal and Federer practised only once together, back at the World Tour Finals and yet managed to defeat the Americans, Jack Sock and Sam Querrey, tells so much about their chemistry. "We will always be rivals. But this was something very special, it was an absolute pleasure being on the court with Rafa and seeing his decision-making process,” Federer expresses to The Telegraph. 4. Lebron James & Dwyane Wade View this post on Instagram Current mood.. Until the wheels fall thee f#*k off @dwyanewade. Beyond death! P.S @willsmith @martinlawrence appreciate letting us flex this clip! A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:36pm PST Entering the league in the same draft year, Dwyane Wade and Lebron James immediately became the poster boys for their respective teams. The bromance for the duo began when James decided to move to Miami in the search for a title. Despite the presence of Chris Bosh, people paid big bucks to see the Wade-James duo perform on a different level than everyone else present on the court. Videos of 'Wade to James alley-oops' are all over YouTube and are genuinely fun to watch. The chemistry goes well beyond the court as the two NBA stars are often spotted vacationing together with their families and continue to do a lot of social work as a team. James and Wade were also able to win back-to-back championships in Miami. Wade also moved to a Lebron-led Cleveland Cavaliers for a very brief moment.
  22. Which instant messaging app or service do you actively use? Your answer will definitely include WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Hike, or Skype. Now, can you send a message from WhatsApp to a contact on Hike? No, you can't. These apps have their own protocols for data transfer and services work inside their own bubble only. RCS (Rich Communications Services) is a new protocol that is meant to replace SMS (Short Message Service). With SMS, you can send a text or compressed image to anyone via a mobile number. SMS is a standard protocol and hence supported by every other phone or OS. You can send SMS from an iPhone to an Android phone. Unlike third-party apps, these protocols are universal and hence easily usable. © Google SMS is an age-old standard and supports just 160 characters in each transfer. While everyone has shifted to third-party IMs, SMS is still very important because of its reliability. It doesn't require a separate internet connection and is dependent completely on the carrier or telecom operator. This reliability gives a very crucial edge to SMS. Now, RCS will soon be the de facto protocol for messages. Google is a primary backer of RCS and major telecom operators around the world are working on supporting it. Google is rolling out the new features afforded by RCS as "chat" and it's part of the existing Android Messages app - alongside SMS and MMS. © Google RCS is very similar to Apple's iMessage service. It's a more interactive protocol that allows you to start group chats, send video and audio messages, and send high-resolution images. You'll also be able to receive read receipts and even see when someone is replying to your message in real time. If a user on the other end does not support RCS, text messages are sent in as SMS. The same practice is also seen on iMessage, if the two users have an Apple device, the chat happens over iMessage, else via SMS. Instead of using a cellular connection, Chat will rely on your data connection. © GSMA Though, RCS service doesn't support end-to-end encryption, meaning messages exchanged through this new protocol are less secure than those sent and received via competitors like iMessage and Signal.
  23. Just last month Samsung showed off a brand new concept phone that has a foldable screen and closes just like a book. Samsung plans to shake up the smartphone business with a new phone in an already saturated market. Samsung only showed off the display of the smartphone and didn't give a clear look at the body of the smartphone. For years Samsung has been developing consumer ready foldable displays and intends to be the first major company to launch a phone with the technology. We already know that Huawei and LG too are working on the same lines and competition has never been this intense. © YouTube But things are slowly going south for Samsung, its latest bendable screen technology has been stolen and sold to two Chinese companies, according to prosecutors in South Korea. The prosecutors allege that a Samsung supplier leaked blueprints of Samsung's "flexible OLED edge panel 3D lamination" to a company that it had set up. Intellectual property theft is a national concern for South Korea as it tries to maintain its narrowing technology lead over China. 11 people have been indicted and three of them, including the company's CEO, have been arrested and are awaiting trial. © Reuters The group allegedly formed a separate shell company that received information of the use equipment and drawings of the panels, which they accessed from working with Samsung. They then sold the documents in China, earning 15.5 billion won (U$ 13.8 million). The hardware that is alleged to have been stolen is used to create the curved screens found on the edges of Samsung's popular Galaxy line of smartphones, prosecutors said. Samsung introduced the edge version of OLED panels with the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. Since then, it has introduced a dual-edge version that has been used in its flagship S and Note series. © Reuters It manufactures more than 90 percent of the small and midsize OLED panels used in smartphones worldwide. A leak of technology in this field would deal a huge blow to Samsung The South Korean giant spent about 150 billion won over a period of six years to develop the OLED technology that is now considered highly-classified national knowledge, prosecution said.

  24. 'Far Cry New Dawn' returns players to Hope County, Montana, 17 years after the nukes that brought 'Far Cry 5' to its fiery conclusion, fulfilling Joseph Seed's prophecy. America has only recently emerged from the grasp of a nuclear winter, and Hope County has been fortunate to benefit from the vagaries of a resurgent mother nature. Those people that survived have emerged into a new Super Bloom biome; colourful and full of life, blessed by sun and rain. Familiar faces return to re-stake their claim on the land and rebuild their lives for the sake of tomorrow's children. © Twitter They become farmers, peacefully producing ethanol to power their machines that plough the fields and vehicles that keep them in the hunt for food in the wild. They were not prepared for the threat riding from the Eastern seaboard; a band of modern-day pirates calling themselves the Highwaymen. Headed by sadistic siblings Mickey and Lou, the Highwaymen live for the day, claiming whatever resources they can find – woe betide anyone who stands in their way. But, of course, this is precisely what you are here to do… Survival is the key objective, defending a ramshackle home-base using makeshift weaponry in this new, lawless frontier. With all-new Friends for Hire and Fangs for Hire, the good folk of Hope County could make it through alive. Fight tooth and nail to make sure they succeed. What Happened After The Nuclear Fallout? © Youtube Within days of the explosions that rocked America, the country descended into a nuclear winter; the sun's rays prevented from reaching the earth. Even in Montana, a summer in July would see temperatures of just 2 degrees Celsius. Fast forward 17 years and the clouds have lifted. Hope County has sprung back to life, and the people emerge from their bunkers into this lush and inviting post-apocalyptic world. The Survivors' peaceful, resourceful way of life will not remain uninterrupted for long, however. A savage new threat approaches. What About The Survivors? Led by Kim Rye, who players may recall from 'Far Cry 5', the Survivors establish a home base, where children can be kept safe and prosper. The production of ethanol becomes a priority, fuelling farm vehicles and machinery, and keeping transport on the move. As resources are harvested, the home base facilities improve, with upgrades to the Training Camp, Garage, Healing Garden, and Cartographer among others. Initially, the greatest threat is scarcity. Who Are The Bad Guys? © Twitter The Highwaymen, led by the twins Mickey and Lou, are modern-day pirates that take your money or your life. Their founders got lucky, being trapped at the Eastern seaboard when the bombs dropped, putting them in close proximity to the docks with all the food, vehicles, medicine, and even weapons. There was not an infinite supply, however, forcing the group onto the road, where they encountered ruthless bandits, realising they were ill prepared. Their journey to the West toughened the Highwaymen, now they're here to take Montana. Who Are Mickey And Lou? © Twitter There are two main antagonists in 'Far Cry New Dawn' – siblings Mickey and Lou, the twin daughters of their father and Highwaymen founder. The sisters' ruthlessness knows no bounds. In Mickey and Lou's world, you are either a problem maker or a problem solver. Mickey and Lou are the group's leaders, complementing each other's hard personalities. Their world is tough; it's kill or be killed. They've grown used to folk surrendering on sight. How Do You Defend Yourself? This is the new Wild West, but instead of rifles and horses, survivors ride pick-up trucks and carry AR-15s. However, every item owned in America is now makeshift, and therefore highly personalised. Unique, signature weapons replace the old world off-the-shelf armoury, and every makeshift weapon can be upgraded given the right resources. The Saw Launcher, for example, hurls singular circular saws to start out with, but eventually, three can fire at once. Weapons are tailored on the workbench at home base, unlocking their future potential. Guns For Hire While 'Far Cry New Dawn' is balanced to give co-op players the best possible experience when playing solo the new Guns for Hire prove great company. In addition to being crack shots, they're wise-crackers too and regale their companions with stories of their life. Among the Guns for Hire made known so far are 17-year-old Carmina - the daughter of Nick and Kim Frye (Carmina was the new-born in the Far Cry 5 mission 'Special Delivery'). Carmina is a child of New Dawn, this world is all she has known. There is also Nana, an elderly lady who is a stealthy sniper, described as a sharpshooter with a sharp tongue. She chastises the Highwaymen, drawing them out into the open. Fangs For Hire Very sadly, the much-beloved Boomer has passed away. However, the good news is that Fangs for Hire are still very much a part of 'Far Cry New Dawn'. There is a new dog called Timber, an Akita, who can now accompany players in vehicles, head out of the window. Meantime, we have an element of chaos introduced via Horatio, the giant hog. Horatio is trained to attack intruders and is capable of flinging Highwaymen around like toys, three or four at a time. Between Timber and Horatio, we can see how endearing the Fangs for Hire have become. Outposts And Expeditions Make A Return The Outposts make their return but are now linked to an all-new Escalation mode. A robust gameplay loop that allows players to first of all conquer these Outposts, before scavenging for resources such as ethanol. Abandoned Outposts are claimed by increasingly higher-level Highwaymen, who reinforce the facilities while improving the alarm systems. Meanwhile, players can embark on Expeditions to exotic parts of the United States; essentially smash-and-grab missions to claim valuable resources from much further afield and face unfamiliar challenges.
