If You Missed It: Iceborne Expansion Won't Arrive on PC Until 2020

There's been a lot of good words floating around out there about the forthcoming "Iceborne" expansion for Monster Hunter: World. The quality-of-live improvements, in particular, have been appreciated, but there's a lot of content there, too. There's also been a few bad words floating around: delayed release on PC. It wasn't clear how long PC players would have to wait, but Capcom cleared that up: January 2020.The silver lining here is that the delay isn't as long as the initial six-month differential between the console and PC releases for the base game. If you're interested in making the switch to the PC version, too, then this four month gap should give you time to play through the campaign and do some post-campaign hunts with a new character so you can be ready when Iceborn does finally arrive.Get ready, hunters! Monster Hunter World: #Iceborne arrives September 6 on PS4 and Xbox One! Steam version coming January 2020. pic.twitter.com/KGMiRcB1AI

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Coming to Switch Next Year

about X hours ago from

Here's a surprise: a Bubble Bobble sequel will arrive soon. Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is coming to the Nintendo Switch and will support four player couch co-op. The original is, apparently, hugely popular in Europe so if you live there, you'll be getting the game first on November 19, 2019. Fans in the U.S. will need to wait until sometime "first quarter 2020" to play.Honestly, the fact that the original title is so popular in Europe was almost equally as surprising, to me, as the fact that a sequel has been in development and is coming out soon. We checked with Sam, our resident European, and he confirmed that yes, he is fond of Bubble Bobble, so we'll just say that he speaks for everyone and that information checks out. There's not a whole lot of other information for the game right now outside of the release dates and that it ups the couch co-op player count from two to four. Enjoy the announce trailer!Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

Meet the Rest of the New Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3

about X hours ago from

A few weeks back, Gearbox released a character trailer for Zane, one of the the four new Vault Hunters you'll get to play in the forthcoming Borderlands 3. They've been releasing a new trailer featuring a different character every few days since, and we've gone ahead and collected them all here for your viewing entertainment. Meet Amara, Moze, and FL4K.Not too much to add to what's shown here. Amara is a kind of hometown hero who's "always looking for a fight," Moze is a former Vladof soldier that ditched the corporation and took her mech with her, and FL4K is an "emergent AI" with some good doggos. Provides some background on who you'll be playing, if you haven't picked your character already, but if you're more interested in getting an idea of some of what you'll be playing, there's a Polygon story that just went live about the two villains and what Gearbox is attempting to do this time around. It sounds like it could be interesting, but it's also a very tough tightrope to walk.Borderlands 3 will launch next month on September 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
