Gearbox has added Krieg the Psycho, the second downloadable character, and the first focused on melee combat, to Borderlands 2 today. Krieg is available to download from the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PC download services for $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft Points). If you previously purchased the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, Krieg will be a free download.
“On behalf of the development team at Gearbox Software, I want to thank the fans of Borderlands 2 for the love and engagement that allows us to invest our hearts and time into supporting the game with an entirely new player character, Kreig the Psycho,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Our fans now get the opportunity to step into the shoes of one of the most iconic characters in the Borderlands franchise as they slice their way through Pandora on the hunt for new loot!”
If the launch trailer isn’t enough to satisfy your clamoring for Krieg carnage, Creative Director Paul Helquist has posted a 15-minute walkthrough with the character at Game Trailers.
Take Two Interactive had a very good year. The publisher’s 2013 fiscal year ended in March, so yesterday they presented their financial fortunes to shareholders and the press. Take Two also wants you to know that they’ve pinned down release dates for WWE 2K14 and NBA 2K14.
According to the press release, the first WWE game published by 2K Games will be released on October 29 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. As of today, a version of the game for the Wii U or an appearance on next-generation systems from Sony or Microsoft looks to be out of the question.
The future of NBA 2K14 is even more mysterious. We know it’ll be available on October 1, but Take Two has listed the supported platforms as “TBA.” Typically, the NBA 2K series is released for every conceivable platform, so the “TBA” is probably just a placeholder for “PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and the (currently unnamed) Xbox 720/Durango.”
But I guess we’ll find out for sure in October.
2K’s rebranded and rebooted XCOM shooter, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, is chugging towards its August 20 release on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Today, the publisher released a new trailer for the game promising to delve into the origin of the mysterious “Bureau” that has been hunting aliens since the 1960s.
Does the trailer deliver on its promise? You’ll have to [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] to find out.
After a bit of a delay after original publisher THQ went bankrupt, Metro: Last Light is ready to be released in stores this week. New publisher Deep Silver is giving the Russian-set shooter the red carpet treatment and will release the game on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this week.
Also available this week is Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall, a point-and-click adventure for the PC.
The Killing Joke is one of the most famous Batman stories of all time. In the disturbing, The Joker believes that any sane man can become insane after one “very bad day.” To test this theory, he shoots and cripples Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl, in front of her father, Commissioner James Gordon. The Joker’s plan doesn’t quite work out as Barbara Gordon rechristens herself Oracle and becomes the supreme source of information for Gotham’s supers and she later regains the ability to walk and retakes the mantle of Batgirl.
All of which leads us to the brand new Batgirl trailer released today for Injustice: Gods Among Us. The world’s favorite librarian dons her batsuit and delivers a massive beatdown to The Joker (who’s wearing his Killing Joke costume).
Batgirl will be available on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace soon. A Killing Joke costume pack will also be available as a separate download. Wii U owners will be able to download the character this Summer.
Isaac Clarke just can’t seem to catch a break. He’s been to hell and back, and here he is again in Dead Space 3, being tasked once more with unfathomable responsibility. After all, who else can be trusted with saving the universe against the power of the Markers? Visceral Games has made some pretty serious changes this time around, most of them bad ones. Rumors have flown that there won’t be a Dead Space 4, and just yesterday, EA announced that Dead Space 3 didn’t sell enough copies to be considered “successful.” Keeping all of that in mind, are those rumors justified? (more…)
Sony plans to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo with a special event at the Silverstone Race Circuit in England on May 15. “The event will be a celebration of all that Gran Turismo has come to represent to a community of millions all over the world” and Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi will make a special announcement about the future of the franchise.
Sony didn’t come right out and say they’re announcing Gran Turismo 6, but since we know it’s already in development, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet.
The only question is… PS3 or PS4?
EA announced earlier this week that The Sims 4 would be released sometime next year. Yesterday, company President Frank Gibeau confirmed that the next entry in the popular franchise will be available for the PC and Mac in early 2014.
The Sims 4 will be joined by ten other titles in EA’s “fiscal 2014″ lineup. All of these games will be in stores before March 31, 2014, but most are already on the schedule for 2013:
- Fuse (May 28)
- NCAA Football 14 (July 9)
- Madden NFL 25 (August 27)
- NHL 14 (September 10)
- FIFA Soccer 14 (September)
- FIFA Manager 14 (October)
- Battlefield 4 (Fall)
They’ll be joined by the free-to-play Command & Conquer (which is expected to be released sometime in 2013), the next Need For Speed game (NFS games are typically released in the Fall), and NBA Live 14. Many of these titles were also confirmed for release on the PS4 and the Xbox 720/Durango during the same briefing.
