The Elder Scrolls: Blades Delayed To 2019

At E3 this past year, Bethesda sandwiched a display of their newest mobile title between Fallout 76 and announcements of future projects. While the placement seemed to try and couch the announcement in the best possible light, Bethesda Games Studios director Todd Howard spent a lot of time showing off the game to present it as a full-featured Elder Scrolls title set to come out in 2018. On the last note at least, Bethesda is moving the mark.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades will release in Early 2019 for iOS and Android devices. We are incredibly excited for you to play Blades and you can still sign up for Early Access at https://t.co/uuFPob6YWJ.

While full-featured, the open world aspect The Elder Scrolls games have been known for is damped down considerably for a more digestible experience. The Elder Scrolls: Blades is also meant to be controlled entirely with one hand using gestures to control all the actions.

Borderlands 2 VR Exclusive To PlayStation 4 For Minimum Five Months

It wasn't that long ago that Gearbox announced a special VR version of Borderlands 2, eschewing multiplayer in favor of new virtual reality experiences and changes. The port was announced on Sony's PlayStation blog, though it was assumed that Borderlands 2 VR would eventually come to PC as well. It now seems that "eventually" has a time frame of at least five months.

The news comes from a commercial for the VR version of Borderlands 2, mostly made of simulated footage. At the end of the commercial, a message at the bottom declares "Borderlands 2 VR is exclusive to PSVR for a minimum of five months from launch."

This means that competing headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive won't be getting the game until late April at the earliest. The game supports a number of different control schemes, including both motion controls and a standard controller, as well as a different types of locomotion. Players can teleport around or maintain direct control or combine both.

Life Is Strange 2's Second Episode Has A Release Window

Life is Strange 2 kicked off in September to good reviews, but with no official word on the second episode's release, eager fans were left wondering when they could continue Sean and Daniel's adventure.

Good news came from a developer post on the official Life Is Strange Blog today which acknowledged the wait and explained, "The Life is Strange series is a project close to all of our hearts and one for which we do not want to rush development and thereby fail to meet the benchmark of quality and emotional impact that you, our players, deserve."

 The end of the post gave fans something to be excited about saying, "we can now officially say that Episode 2 will be released in January 2019," and later went on to tease more information coming in mid December.
