On Thursday, Travis Scott debuted his new music in an event called the Astronomical experience in Fortnite. Scott used the game to create the psychedelic event inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, which is the rapper’s nickname and the name of his record label.
If you missed it, don’t worry, there’s another show coming.
When did Travis Scott’s Astronomical start?
The show started at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 23. The event lasted approximately 10 minutes and consisted of a giant Travis Scott rapping as players bounced, flew and swam in an event that could rival playing Fortnite on mushrooms.
The show also had hints to previous Fortnite season-ending events and even featured a shot of the original map of the island.
I missed the show, now what?
To experience the Astronomical experience for yourself, Epic Games will repeat the event on Saturday, April 25, at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
Is there any Travis Scott loot?
Yes. Players who attend the Astronomical event will receive the Astroworld Cyclone Glider and two new loading screens.
The rapper will be part of Fortnite’s Icon Series that lets players purchase Travis Scott skins and other cosmetics in the game’s item shop on Tuesday.
Epic added the Travis Scott skin and the Astronomical Bundle to the Fortnite Item shop on Thursday before the event started. The skin alone is 1,500 V-Bucks, or approximately $15, and the bundle is 3,500 V-Bucks, or approximately $35, and comes with the skin, the Astro Jack outfit, Astroworld back bling and Cactus Jack back bling.
Starting on Tuesday, there will be a set of Astronomical challenges for players to complete. Rewards include a new Travis Scott spray and emote. Players will have until Sunday to complete these challenges.

A number of iPhone users are seeing a strange green tint on their devices’ displays for a few seconds after unlocking, and it’s still unclear what’s causing the phenomenon. Based on the complaints posted on Reddit and the MacRumors forum, the most affected devices are the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. However, some iPhone X and XS users seem to be experiencing the issue, as well.
Several users are saying that the green tint only shows up when they have Dark Mode and Night Shift on or if they’re in dark room. Affected users are also reporting that the issue popped up after iOS 13.4 came out, though there are those who’ve only noticed it after upgrading to iOS 13.5. At least one user says the green tint disappeared upon installing iOS 13.5.5, which is currently in beta, so it’s looking more likely that it’s a software issue. We’ve reached out to Apple for a statement and will update you when we hear back — if it is a software issue, then the tech giant is bound to roll out an update that’ll fix it in the future.

The rescheduled date for the next season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Season 4, has been leaked. The turnover from Season 3 had been delayed so as to not overshadow or contend with the global protests surrounding racial injustice.
Through data-mining the files of Season 3, per ModernWarzone, Twitter user Geekypastimes discovered that the ending date had been altered from June 2, to June 10. This would mean the change-over will occur at what is a regular time for new Call of Duty updates, in the evening of June 9 if you’re in the US, and in the morning of June 10 if you’re UK and Europe.
Activision and Infinity Ward announced on Twitter that the regularly scheduled next season would be delayed indefinitely on June 2. “Right now it’s time for those speaking up for inequality, justice and change to be seen and heard,” the message reads. “We stand alongside you.” It was expected to roll-out sometime June 3, containing several new weapons and maps, and a new operator. The Galil and Vector are believed to be headed to your arsenal, Scrapyard among the new locations, and one Captain Price to be a playable character.
In light of the current discussions about racial inequality, Infinity Ward has begun taking measures against racism in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s multiplayer and Warzone.
Oppo has been rumored to be developing a smart TV at least since Christmas and we now have some concrete proof of those plans. On its official Weibo page, the company published an infographic celebrating 1 year of commercial 5G efforts in China. We thought that it was 1 November last year when that kicked off, but Oppo may have something else in mind and even so that little discrepancy is beside the point.
Down at the very bottom of the rather long image, there’s a stylized depiction of a TV in a grid of pictured existing products.
Oppo infographic chopped into more easily digestible pieces, TV in last image
Sister company Realme recently released a couple of smart TVs in India powered by Android TV and featuring Google Assistant. Priced very competitively, they could be a soak test before Oppo’s own foray into the field.
Oppo unveiled a set of truly wireless earphones, the Enco W51 the other day. Alongside them, the Oppo Band made a debut as well. Both of these devices are featured there in the infographic next to the TV’s placeholder, but the TV itself is yet to make an appearance.
Meanwhile, Nokia of all companies launched a smart TV as well, two days ago too. Apparently, smartphone companies can’t afford to not be making TVs anymore.
