Borderlands 3 Trailer Released, Confirming The Game At PAX East

about X hours ago from

Following countless teases and years of suggestions that it was in the works, Gearbox Software has officially confirmed Borderlands 3, as part of what it is calling The Year of Borderlands. The third mainline game in the series was revealed at the developer's PAX East panel. Although the reveal was plagued by technical issues, we did ultimately see the debut Borderlands 3 trailer, which you can watch above. We did not, however, get a release date, although more details are coming on April 3.

The trailer begins with a shot of the iconic Psycho mask and pans up to reveal that the wasteland is as desolate and full of mayhem as when we last saw it. A Children of the Vault camp is one of the first things we see and next to the entrance there are signs referring to Calypso. One message reads, "Answer Calypso's call," while another invites people to "Meet Calypso." This enigmatic figure is introduced in the very next scene and from her wry grin, overconfident swagger, and snarling sidekick, it's a pretty safe bet to say she'll be one of the key villains of Borderlands 3. For those that know their greek mythology, Calypso is the daughter of the titan, Atlas. It just so happens that Atlas is also the name of one of the big corporate entities on Pandora, where the Borderland games primarily take place.

Gearbox Software has officially confirmed Borderlands 3, as part of what it is calling The Year of Borderlands. The third mainline entry in the series was revealed at the developer's PAX East panel, where it showed off a rather meaty gameplay trailer.

Bulletstorm Is Coming To Switch, And Duke Nukem Will Be Included

about X hours ago from

During Gearbox's PAX East keynote presentation, the company revealed Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition, a Switch port of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition that also includes the Duke Nukem DLC. This way, you can play the game with original protagonist Grayson Hunt or the titular protagonist of the Duke Nukem franchise.

Releasing in 2011, Bulletstorm is a first-person shooter that focuses on rewarding players for killing enemies in the most creative way possible. A remaster for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, titled Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, released in April 2017, adding the option of playing as Duke Nukem--who fits in perfectly with the game's rather crass humor. The Switch port is scheduled for Summer 2019.

Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition Re-Releasing With New Improvements

about X hours ago from

Gearbox teased that it would have multiple announcements during its PAX East panel, and one of them has turned out to center around the original Borderlands. The studio has announced a re-released version of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. It releases on April 3.

This news isn't a complete surprise, as a Korean ratings board listing from last year suggested this game was coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Gearbox tried to run the trailer revealing the news during its panel, but it seemingly ran into technical issues. Despite that, the trailer was rolled out on YouTube anyway, and you can see it below.

"With new weapons, visual upgrades, character heads, gold chests and keys, plus all 4 add-on packs, you can enjoy all of the content from one of the Most Acclaimed Games of its era, now in one sweet and deliciously modern package!" a description reads.

Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition Adds More Weapons, Improvements In New Release

about X hours ago from

In the lead up to PAX East, Gearbox teased that we'd potentially see multiple new games unveiled. Despite some technical issues hampering the reveal during the panel, One of those has turned out to be an enhanced re-release of an existing game, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. This version of the original game in the Borderlands series is seeing a new release on current-gen platforms, but it's not a mere port--it also packs in new content, including more weapons, in addition to a variety of other improvements, and it releases next week.

This is described as the "brand-new definitive version." It's set for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and features the same basic content as the original game, complete with all four of its DLC packs: The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.

The Game of the Year Edition will feature visual improvements suited to the new platforms. Gearbox boasts that PS4 and Xbox One X players (and presumably those with adequate PC hardware) can play in 4K and HDR, but all platforms will include "improved lighting, textures, and character models."

Google Stadia: Hands-On Impressions With The New Cloud Streaming Service

about X hours ago from

Google Stadia, a cloud-based platform that streams games from a remote data center to nearly any device, is designed to work on laptops, phones, tablets, PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, and TVs with Chromecast. All graphics processing is relegated to off-site hardware, so all you need is a strong internet connection. It's a technologically impressive concept, and we were eager to be one of the first to experience it on the GDC 2019 showroom floor. Both Assassin's Creed Odyssey and 2016's Doom were playable at the event, and though they ran and looked great, I couldn't help but notice one significant shortcoming.

Keep in mind, my hands-on time was at the Google stations on the GDC show floor, so your mileage may vary. There are a lot variables at play in addition to the internet connection, and these are early playable builds under unknown conditions. Display response time is another factor that we couldn't account for during the hands-on demo, and it's an important spec to consider, especially for a PC-like experience--these were not gaming-grade monitors at the demo stations.

Every Major Apple Keynote Announcement: Apple Arcade, Streaming Services, And More

about X hours ago from

Apple's latest keynote, the Show Time event, brought with it news on an array of products and services coming to the company's slew of devices. However, unlike most Apple events, the focus was not on new hardware, but instead on subscription-based services--all designed to deliver entertainment, video game, and magazine content.

We've condensed all of the major news for you below, and we also have a roundup of everything we know about Apple Arcade.

The centerpiece of the announcements was Apple TV, which came in two major ways. The Apple TV app is getting a major revision called Apple TV Channels that will allow users to directly access shows from providers like HBO, Starz, Amazon, and Hulu. You'll also be able to purchase shows on demand. It's coming this May, and the app will also expand to smart TVs and players like Roku and Amazon Fire TV in the spring.
