A talented artist has created an Avatar: The Last Airbender video game. Their stunning creation was made using Dreams on the PlayStation 4, and it’s every bit as mind-bending as it sounds! 

The Last Airbender recently celebrated its 15th anniversary in February, as the groundbreaking animation originally released in 2008 on Nickelodeon. Despite ending over a decade ago, the series has a passionate following.

In videos posted to his channel, fans get a glimpse of a gameplay featuring Aang flying around with his glider. Players can even create an air scooter, and zip around the level while the monk hovers above the wind.

Impressively the one-person developer even designed an “Avatar state” mechanic, which looks incredible. Gaming outlet IGN compiled some of the best scenes from his hundreds of hours of development uploads on his channel.

While the Nickelodeon franchise has had games in the past such as the 2014 Legend of Korra title by Platinum Games, fans have been waiting for close to a decade to get a proper take on Aang’s journey.

In a Q&A, the artist explained his reasoning behind making an Avatar-based game. “About a year ago, I re-watched the series after a long time not watching it. And it was so much better than I originally remembered. I recognized there currently is no big or actually good Avatar games on the market,” he said.

Last month to celebrate the show’s anniversary, the YouTuber uploaded a video showcasing new gameplay of Aang using his glider. The clip quickly went viral, and at the time of writing has over 521,000 views.

It may not be an official game, but it’s the closet fans are probably going to get to one – and it looks amazing. If nothing else, it shows the Sony-owned title has a ton of potential to make turn creative visions into a reality.

After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins.

After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.

The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.
