In today's particularly thrilling gaming news, we have everyone's favorite multiplayer battle Fortnite coming to life, a fresh batch of zombies on the loose in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and a major update for the space exploration game No Man's Sky.

First up, Funko and Epic Games revealed in a press release Wednesday that they are partnering up to launch a line of toys and collectibles for the insanely popular game Fortnite. Yup, soon you will be able to physically play saving the world with the likes of Constructor, Ninja, Outlander, and Soldier. But remember to play nice with each other guys. 

The branded collection will feature more than 10 different product lines including Funko's iconic Pop! figures, 5 Star figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, POP! apparel, and more. The products will be available towards the end of 2018 in time for the holiday season, and will be found at most retailers worldwide.

Next, a new trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has arrived and all we can say is, if you're scared of the flesh-eating undead then look away now. It's the 10-year anniversary of Call of Duty Zombies, and to commemorate this event, they're giving fans three new zombie-infested experiences with IX, Voyage of Despair, and Blood of the Dead.

The sneak peak in the latest trailer shows Scarlett Rhodes uncovering a dark and sinister truth behind the doomed RMS Titanic in Voyage of Despair, as she is helped by three loyal outcasts who come face-to-face with an almighty evil that could wipe out the human race altogether. The game, available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, is set to arrive this October.

Lastly, there's good news for fans of No Man's Sky, as a trailer released yesterday reveals that on July 24 the game will have its biggest update yet with No Man's Sky NEXT, bringing a full multiplayer experience for the first time.

Players will be able to embark on an epic voyage to the center of a boundless universe and explore entirely new galaxies. Judging by the awesome visuals in the teaser, it will likely keep you occupied for the rest of the year and beyond.
