NVIDIA GeForce and Epic Games have officially partnered up to release an all-new in-game cosmetic bundle with V-Bucks. Here’s everything you need to know.

Epic Games have been known to offer exclusive bundles for various partnerships, including the popular Twitch Prime ones, throughout 2018, and it has now been confirmed that an NVIDIA GeForce one is next in line.

The announcement of a GeForce bundle is an exciting one – not least because of how good it looks in the images – but nothing had been confirmed until November 29.

“If Victory Royale is your mission, the GeForce Fortnite Bundle is just for you,” reads an announcement on NVIDIA’s website. “For a limited time, when you upgrade your weaponry with a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, 1070, or 1060 graphics card, you’ll receive 2000 V-Bucks and the male Fortnite Counterattack Set. Enjoy the ultimate Battle Royale experience with GeForce GTX graphics and be the last one standing.”

NVIDIAThe bundle will include the Reflex outfit, Pivot glider, Angular Axe pickaxe and Response Unite back bling.

If you’re wondering what the bundle and cosmetics will look like in-game, TSM’s Dokataz has the answer for you!

“NEW SKINS! @EpicGames & @NVIDIA were nice enough to give me these Skins,” said the popular streamer on Twitter along with a video of them. “Will be offered for a limited time starting November 29th with the purchase of certain GTX cards.”

After the bundle was originally brought to the community’s attention, some suggested that the it could be fake, while others thought it had been accidentally leaked ahead of time. The confirmation of seems to confirm that the second theory was true.

To get your hands on this latest bundle, you will need to purchase a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1060, or a desktop or laptop that uses one of those cards. 

The wording makes it sound like the reward can only be redeemed if you buy a new card, and the likes of the 1080 or even the new RTX 2070 and 2080 cards are currently excluded.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
