Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel Receiving Free Visual Update

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection released in 2015 and included Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel, putting two of Gearbox's most beloved games on PS4 and Xbox One. Today, Gearbox revealed a nice little surprise for those who still have the collection (or own one/both titles on PC).

On April 3 the collection will receive free texture upgrade that increases the visual fidelity of both titles. Gearbox says that these enhancements are best enjoyed in 4k but those playing otherwise will also see enhancements. Those who own Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel on PC will receive these enhancements for free as well.

Bulletstorm Coming To Switch This Summer

Bulletstorm Coming To Switch This Summer

Bulletstorm, the first-person shooter from developer People Can Fly, is getting a Switch port in the next few months. The news comes from the Gearbox panel at PAX East, where the Austin-based developer is stretching their publishing arms once again by bringing the foul-mouthed action shooter to Switch this summer.

Dubbed Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition, the Switch port contains all of the extra content from the PS4, Xbox One, and PC remaster released in 2017. Much like that version, Gearbox implemented Duke Nukem into the game as the playable character, complete with his own dialogue during cutscenes. It will also include all the game's DLC from its original 2011 release.

An exact date wasn't provided at the conference, but it definitely won't be too long a wait. You can find our review of the original release of the game right here.

Early Access For Dreams Begins In April

Early Access For Dreams Begins In April

Fans have been waiting a long time to get their hands on Dreams. Although earlier this year a small group of players got a chance to play in the beta, Media Molecule is now bringing Dreams to a wider audience with its early access build starting April 16.

Similar to the beta, this build has limitations and it won't feature all the content we'll see in the full launch version. For example, using PSVR is still not possible. As studio director Siobhan Reddy explains in a PlayStation Blog post detailing what we can expect, this is "designed for creators to get hands on with the tools." You have access to the full toolset, interactive tutorials, arcade games, templates, and additional content created by Media Molecule. You also have access to what the rest of the community creates if they wish to share it. More features will slowly be implemented, and if you play early access, you will have the first hands-on opportunities with them.

Dreams Early Access will cost $29.99 on PS4 and will be available in the US, Canada, and all European territories. To get your hands on it, all you have to do is purchase Dreams Early Access from the PlayStation Store when it arrives next month. By buying this version, you won't need to repurchase the game when it launches later on, and your creations will carry over to the release version too.

Kaz Hirai Retiring From Sony In June

Kaz Hirai Retiring From Sony In June

Nearly one year after stepping down as Sony President and CEO to take on the role of Sony chairman, Kaz Hirai announced that he is retiring. The longtime employee will be leaving June 18, though he will continue to work with the company in an advisory capacity.

"Since passing the baton of CEO to [Kenchiro] Yoshida-san last April, as Chairman of Sony, I have had the opportunity to both ensure a smooth transition and provide support to Sony's management," Hirai wrote in a statement. "I am confident that everyone at Sony is fully aligned under Yoshida-san's strong leadership, and are ready to build an even brighter future for Sony. As such, I have decided to depart from Sony, which has been a part of my life for the past 35 years. I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to all our employees and stakeholders who have supported me throughout this journey."

During that journey, Hirai was instrumental in helping to transition the PlayStation brand from second place during the PS3 era to the position the PS4 currently enjoys.
