Starting today, anyone with an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC can download the free trial of Gearbox Software’s hero shooter Battleborn, gaining instant access to all of the game’s competitive multiplayer content. It’s like it’s gone half free-to-play.
Battleborn Day, the fan-led event aimed at drumming up more players for Gearbox’s troubled hero shooter, managed to drastically increase the number of players in the game over the November 12 weekend, but the numbers were still low and the spike didn’t last.
Though we’ve seen nothing from Microsoft, Gearbox or 2K mentioning any sort of special offer, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is now available for free in the Microsoft Store. Weird. Update: It’s a gift from Microsoft!
Fans of Battleborn’s story operations that are sick to death of playing the initial set of scenarios get a reprieve today with Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion, a retelling of the third Thrall uprising with a little film noir flair.
Players purchasing the physical copy of Mafia III’s PC Deluxe Edition through retailers like Amazon and Best Buy are not receiving activation codes for the game, leaving them unable to play.
Whatever 2K Sports is paying their marketing department employees, it’s not enough. The WWE 2K games get mixed to positive reviews, but the promotion of those games is consistent, first-rate, and exemplary. Whoever makes the games’ commercials has a masterful grasp on why fans love the WWE.
If someone had told me at the beginning of the year that I’d be reviewing Battleborn in May, I would have asked them “Which one is Battleborn again?” Now that I’ve spent a couple dozen hours in Gearbox Software’s latest I think I’ve figured it out.
Battleborn has eight story missions available to play either alone or with a group online. I have completed six. The Saboteur is the seventh, and I’m having a hell of a time with it. I am not alone.
Battleborn’s prologue mission begins with a gorgeous animated sequence, followed by an excellent single-player story mission. Then it goes away. Update: Now it doesn’t!
Per 2K Games’s announcement on Twitter, Mafia III comes to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 7. There’s a new story trailer which you can watch above, and you can read about Kotaku UK’s early impressions of the game at last year’s Gamescom here.
Following the game’s official announcement last week, 2K Games is now ready to show us more—in the form of a reveal trailer.
It’s long been rumored that a new Mafia game was in development and now we have confirmation. More details will be revealed next week.
Above: Excerpt from a press release sent out today by 2K Games, the publisher of the upcoming shooter Evolve.
After an annoying delay, the much-hyped multiplayer shooter Evolve is nearly upon us. Which leads to a more immediate question for all us PC gamers: will we be able to run the thing? Well, the game's developer released its official specs today. And while they're sorta steep, they're certainly not insurmountable.
NBA 2K15 has gotten off to a shaky start. Since the game launched two days ago, players have been reporting ongoing problems with many different aspects of the game's performance—everything from the stability of its online multiplayer to losing progress and stuff acquired in single-player.
We've all heard the story many times now: talented game developers leave their corporate jobs to strike out on their own, turning to Kickstarter in the process. So what makes The Flame in the Flood stand out? Something about BioShock's art director making a modern fancified version of The Oregon Trail, if you ask me.
Everybody loves 2K Games' upcoming competitive monster shooter Evolve, but do they love it enough to start paying off a two and a half foot tall, 35 pound polystone statue of the game's Goliath?
Sir Hammerlock and Mr. Torgue narrate a nearly ten-minute video about the new stuff coming to the Borderlands series with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Oh boy.
You can now play with the skill trees of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: perfect if you'd like to plan out in advance what you'll do on your first playthrough. Wilhelm's drones look like a combination of Axton's turret and Gaige's Deathtrap, both of which I loved in BL2, so I'll probably go with him. What about you?
Online multiplayer returns to Borderlands on PC. The 2009 FPS-RPG was one of the victims of this year's big GameSpy server shutdown, which disabled online play for several PC games. Now, 2K Games has released a patch that moves Borderlands' multiplayer to Steamworks, enabling online play once again. [via…
