    Samsung has announced the launch of a new permanent Fortnite map. It's inspired by the Samsung Odyssey monitor lineup and divided into five spaces, each representing one Odyssey model.

    Odyssey Universe is the name of the map. The five spaces, or levels, are Level Ark, G9, G8, G7, and G6, inspired by Odyssey monitors bearing the same name.

    To celebrate the launch of the new Fortnite map, Samsung partnered with streamers SypherPK and NickEh30 for a live stream on the official Samsung Odyssey Twitch channel. The live stream will commence on March 23 at 2 PM ET.

    Fortnite players can accept missions available in each Odyssey-inspired space and earn various rewards. And once the live stream ends, players have until March 29 to participate in a Scavenger Hunt event to explore the map and find hidden answers.

    These answers found on the Odyssey Universe map can be submitted to the Odyssey Universe event website, where players will be entered into a sweepstake. Keeping with the theme, winners get Odyssey gaming monitors. Samsung will announce the winners during another live stream on the official Odyssey Twitch channel on March 30 at 7 PM ET.

    And to sweeten the launch of this new permanent map in Fortnite even more, Samsung is cutting 15% off select Odyssey gaming monitors at its online store between March 23-30.

    The Galaxy experience can be messy for first-time users

    Some say it's always better to have more options, but it's never as clear-cut as it sounds. This design philosophy doesn't always work, and more importantly, it isn't a magical shortcut that can patch everything up and always lead to a better user experience. On the contrary, if not handled properly, I believe the “more […]

    Buying a low or mid-range Galaxy phone is getting confusing again

    A few years ago, Samsung went on a crusade to abolish the confusopoly it inadvertently created by offering too many choices in the low and mid-range Galaxy phone market segments. The company disposed of the Galaxy J series and simplified things. It focused solely on a few Galaxy A models, and in markets such as […]
