Reddit grants terminally ill fans’ wishes to play Borderlands 3 & Total War: Three Kingdoms

In case you're running low on good feels, this news packs a healthy dose: In the last week, two players got their dying wishes answered thanks to the help of Reddit. In one of those too-rare instances of the internet being a pretty ok place, users rallied and now a 26-year-old cancer patient will get his hands on Borderlands 3 ahead of its September release.…

Claptrap voice actor hits back in Borderlands pay scrap

Claptrap voice actor David Eddings is not returning to voice the irritating robot in Borderlands 3, and the reasons behind this have become a point of public contention/disagreement/agitation between Eddings and Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford on Twitter. That's how private business dealings go these days. Eddings spoke unfunny jokes for the robot at Gearbox, where his main job was in business development, but he…

An hour of Borderlands 3 looting, shooting and interstellar travel

Gearbox fully unveiled Borderlands 3 during a livestreamed event earlier today with an hour of largely-uncut co-op footage, showing off a brighter and more colourful sequel than I was expecting. Combat is more mobile, weapons have alt-fire modes, bosses look more interesting and players can now leave the dusty wastes of Pandora to go shooting and looting on other planets. You can see the full…

Steam’s new “off topic” protections kick in over Borderlands review bombing

Steam’s updated approach to review bombing, which prevents “off topic” reviews from counting towards a game’s overall score, has kicked in for the Borderlands series. It seems to be the first time that the (optional) filter has been applied by Steam, after users flooded the series’ reviews following the announcement that Borderlands 3 will be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store. Viewing the…

Borderlands games reload with updated art and features

There ain't no rest for the wicked, a video game once told me, and Gearbox Software certainly have been busy. Today they launched remastered versions of Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, coming to PC as free updates. They're all prettied-up a bit, while the first game also now includes all the DLC as well as features borrowed from later games in the looter-shooter…

Borderlands 3 blasts new gameplay vid, confirms Epic launch date

Following last week's announcement of Borderlands 3, publishers 2K today blasted a new trailer which does seem to actually contain several seconds of the game being played in there somewhere. They also confirmed the leaked release date of September 13, as well as a details about the game. In short, it's more of the usual looter-shooter action but on new planets with new characters and…

Borderlands 3 announced

Gearbox Software are, as expected, headed back to a beat-up alien planet for more looting and shooting in Borderlands 3. They announced their third game in the FPS action-RPG series, which has also seen a prequel and spin-off from other developers, at PAX East today with a flashy trailer. A trailer which looked like heck during the big announcement presentation due to technical difficulties. Though…

Sledgehammer Games co-founder leads new 2K studio

Michael Condrey, who co-founded Call Of Duty crew Sledgehammer Games after being a big cheese at EA's Visceral Games on games including Dead Space, has now joined 2K as president of a mysterious new studio. Continuing his tour of big American publishers, 2K say Condrey "will build and lead a new development team to work on an unannounced project." It is weird to see 2K…

XCOM 2’s Tactical Legacy DLC brings new modes, and is free for now

More XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen is such an exciting prospect to some that our Alec, despite being away on months-long sabbatical, appeared wanting to write about the new DLC released today (Brendan shooed him away with a broom). Tactical Legacy Pack is its name, and adding loads of new missions and maps and items and modes is its game. It's free for keepsies…

Evolve shutting down dedicated servers and F2P version

2K plans have announced plans to largely end Evolve, the 4v1 monster-hunting first-person shooter from Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios, though it will remain playable in a way. Evolve first launched in February 2015, then relaunched as the free-to-play Evolve Stage 2 in July 2016. 2K plan to shut down Evolve Stage 2 in September, though people who bought the original will be…

Civilization 6 finding religion in Fall Update

The next big free update to Sid Meier's Civilization VI [official site] will overhaul and expand the strategy game's religion system, bringing new beliefs, new pantheons, and new units as well as a reworking of religious combat. AI improvements are coming too, including making computer opponents less useless at sea. Our Adam's Civ 6 review was mighty fond of the game but it has certainly…

Feature: I wish it was 6 hours long

Have You Played… Mafia 3?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I was put off from playing Mafia 3 [official site] by John's thorough review, which told tales of bugs, bad AI, repetitive mission design and more design flaws. But then a few people I respect kept praising it, for its supposedly exciting combat and its more-ish…

Bob Ross, Team RPS and goodness knows who else star in XCOM 2: War of the Chosen propaganda

As someone who knows what twitter is, I have seen many brands invite people to manipulate images or add their own text to things imagining that the internet will adhere to the company’s #brand #values and not e.g. draw genitals all over the place or make jokes at the brand's expense and then the brand discovers that you maybe need to hope and pray that…

Civilization VI launches summer update, Nubian DLC

Summer is certainly upon us, and Civilization VI [official site] is celebrating this joyous season by encouraging you to stay indoors for just one more turn. Civ 6 launched its 'Summer 2017 Update' last night, packed full of balance changes, AI improvements, and bug fixes. As requested, it also added a 'Restart' button to regenerate a map and start over, and the ability to save…

Mafia 3’s third story DLC now meddling with a cult

A kooky cult is now causing trouble in Mafia III [official site] with Sign of the Times, the third of its three big story DLCs. I'm told the Ensanglante are a blood-worshipping cult into drugs and human sacrifice, which sounds like a wild time. Sadly, Lincoln Clay is out to shut them down, investigating their crime scenes using new detective skills then, I imagine, shooting…

Civ 6’s Digital Deluxe Edition adding extra DLCs

The 'Digital Deluxe Edition' of Civilization 6 [official site] is to receive some extra little DLC packs for free, publishers 2K announced today, which is jolly surprising given that the game has been out for six months. 2K say that it wasn't good enough value, so they're making it better. And yup, folks who've already bought the Digital Deluxe Edition will get 'em too. Digital…

Mafia 3 revs up races and car customisation

Given its pretty open-crimeworld shininess but blah reception, Mafia 3 [official site] seems likely to fall in the category of 'games to maybe pick up cheap on sale and pootle around over Winterval while clutching our bellies and groaning 'I should never have drunk all that eggnog''. In which case, you might be interested to know that an update yesterday added races and car customisation.…

Free To Clay: Mafia 3 Patch Suits Up And Fixes Bugs

Our John thought Mafia III [official site] was a “vast, seemingly unfinished calamity” but you might think that he is wholly, objectively wrong. If that’s you - happy days. 2K have released an update that gives New Bordeaux’s revenger-in-chief a bunch of outfits, some of which you’ve already seen if you’ve gone through the story and some of which are new. Alongside these new threads,…
