All Flarlic locations in Pikmin 4

The Pikmin series has always highlighted the idea of commanding huge numbers of tiny creatures at once. With Pikmin 4 utilizing the power of the Switch, more Pikmin than ever can appear on screen, but that doesn’t mean you can just grind out an entire army right off the bat. The game will limit you on how many total Pikmin you can control, forcing you to manage your forces between the different types. While this limitation will feel constricting at first, by collecting special plants called Flarlic, you can increase that number by 10. There are 12 total Flarlics to collect, with each stage having one on the surface and one in a cave to find, but you only need eight of them to reach the max Pikmin limit. Here’s where to find all the Flarlic in Pikmin 4 so you can travel with a full army.

Sun-Speckled Terrace

The Flarlic you can find on the surface is way up north beyond the electric fence that you need Yellow Pikmin to pass. You’ll need at least five Yellow Pikmin to toss up on the potted plant next to the fence in order to reach the Flarlic on the elevated mound.

The second is in the Last-Frost Cavern. Go to the top-left corner of the large northwest room and pluck it out of a sunken plant pot hidden behind some pots you need to smash.

Blossoming Arcadia

Our surface Flarlic is up north on the south side of the water and requires Blue Pikmin to bring back, or Ice Pikmin to freeze the water below it. It is tucked inside a wooden structure you need to toss some Pikmin up to collect.

Underground in the Secluded Courtyard cave, head to the third level down, and go to the western area. Toss up five Pikmin onto the broken pot it is growing in.

Serene Shores

Deep in the waters to the southwest, look for the clam in the back corner. It will have some enemies around it, so clear them out before cracking it open and collecting the Flarlic.

Diving into the Seafloor Resort, while on the first level, head to the northeast corner. You will find a Hydro Jelly you need to break to reach the Flarlic on top.

Hero’s Hideaway

On the kitchen island, go to the north end of the surface and scoop this piece of Flarlic off the plate.

Enter the Plunder Palace and, once again, we’re heading onto the tabletop to the east. On the pink plate is your next piece of Flarlic.

Giant’s Hearth

Near the middle of the map, go up on the hearth itself along the bridge in the middle. This Flarlic is right out in the open for you.

Down in the Dream Home, you need to progress until you come to the two moving fan platforms on the eastern side. Ride one close enough to the other to toss your Pikmin at the Flarlic on it.

Primordial Thicket

The final surface level Flarlic is on the area before you go all the way to the northmost part of the map, just across the bridge. Head to the eastern corner of this area to grab it.

Last up, we’re diving into the Mud Pit. This one is right at the top of the map across the water. Once you’ve cleared the enemies, you’re free to grab it.

Forza Horizon 4 will be delisted in December after one final update

Playground Games announced that Forza Horizon 4 will be delisted online on December 15, but not before rolling out one more series.

In a blog post, the Xbox-owned developer said the game is being delisted due to "licensing and agreements with our partners." All the DLC will be delisted starting on Tuesday (which includes the car DLC packs). While you can still buy all base game editions for now, they'll all be taken off Steam, the Xbox Store, and Xbox Game Pass on December 15. Players that own the game can still play it after the delisting, but they won't be able to buy any new content for it. Playground also stresses that online and multiplayer modes will still work.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

All Map Fragment locations in Shadow of the Erdtree
The golden Erdtree in Shadow of the Erdtree.

What made the experience of Elden Ring so special was how it handled its open-world design. There was a bit of concern about FromSoftware combining the Souls-style combat and map design into an open world, but the result has become one of the most celebrated examples of how open-world design should be done. So, needless to say, everyone was itching for that map to get expanded with the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. The Land of Shadows is a separate new zone added to the game, but it is far larger and more dense than anyone anticipated. As it was in the base game, just exploring the map won't uncover the map for you. To do that, you need to find Map Fragments hidden around the world. There are five to collect to fully reveal the Land of Shadows, so go get them first to get a good lay of the land early.
All Map Fragment locations
As mentioned, there are five Map Fragments in total that correspond to five areas in Shadow of the Erdtree. We'll go through them in the general order you should come across them.

The first area you start in when beginning Shadow of the Erdtree is the Gravesite Plain. Simply ride forward across the field toward the pillar beside the road to collect it.
