Five Kotaku staffers are teaming up to stream Overwatch tonight at 8:30! Tune into our Twitch channel to join in the fun, kills and boops.
Black Panther was good! It also looked good, so I figured I’d showcase the work of a number of artists involved with the film’s production, giving us a look at how the costumes and environments of Wakanda went from the drawing board to the big screen.
Fortnite: Battle Royale most’s popular streamer broke Twitch records last week when he teamed up with Drake, and the game’s audience continues to grow now that a mobile version is in beta.

PUBG Mobile released in North America yesterday, and it’s pretty awesome. But between my own string of victories and the countless chicken dinners on social media, it sure feels like things are too easy.
If you like video game music, this is for you. A little while back I (Kirk) went on the podcast Level with Emily Reese and talked about a bunch of my favorite video game soundtracks. The episode is now up, with lots of musical examples mixed in. Grab some headphones and listen along!
Sea of Thieves is no place for the solo swashbuckler. Bereft of boisterous crewmates, strange thoughts enter the mind. Thoughts like, “Well this isn’t fun at all,” and “Hey, if I stand on a rock the skeletons can’t attack me.”
Jacob Alexander loves keyboards. He has over 600 in his collection and says he emigrated to the U.S. from Canada just because eBay shipping on his keyboard-related orders are cheaper here.

Rainbow Six Siege’s latest update arrived today. Currently live on PC and coming to consoles later this week, Patch Y3S1.1's most notable contribution is fixing the issue where equipped skins would reset after getting disconnected.
