All the news, all in one place.
Ah, the end of a long week and the start of a weekend that feels well and truly earned. We’ve got a wealth of news for you this week, including a release date for the coveted Borderlands 3, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice coming to the Nintendo Switch, and some new DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. So sit down with your breakfast and give this a glance over to catch up on everything you missed this week.
Play the new DLC and fight a god.
So yeah, Shadow of the Tomb Raider got significantly more interesting. Titled The Grand Caiman you can buy it via the season pass, or for the Xbox One. PS4, or PC. There’s also a new trailer to go with it, so have a watch and let us know what you think in the comments.
If you’ve been waiting for a chance to play this on the go, now’s your chance – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on April 11. We did know this was happening thanks to the last Nintendo Direct, but this was sans a release date, so here’s some good news to kick your weekend off right.
It’s all systems go for Borderlands 3
Even though there’s been a ton of Borderlands news this past week, but finally the release date for the third game has been confirmed by Gearbox – September 13, 2019, with a new trailer to go along with the announcement. We don’t know much yet, only that Tiny Tina is back, along with Tales from the Borderlands’ Vaughn, and the game will launch on both console and PC.
The WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge semi finals are heading to WrestleMania Axxess
Four players are fighting for the chance to go up against AJ Styles, which’ll net them a cool million bucks. The final isn’t happening quite yet, though – it’s all kicking off on the NXT TakeOver pre-show, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
And finally, there’s a new gameplay trailer for World War Z
Fresh off the press from Saber Interactive, there’s a look at the gameplay and chapter structure in the new trailer, which dropped this week. With the co op campaign divided into three chapters for each of the four episodes, you’ll select your class and go off to war in either New York, Jerusalem, Moscow, or Tokyo. Plus, the game scales according to how much you’re struggling (or how much you’re not, on the other end of the spectrum) so there’s room for any and all players. Keep an eye out for it when it releases on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 16, 2019.
To wrap it up, here’s what happened on GGS this week:
- John’s had a chat with Close to the Sun’s developer, Joel Hakalax, where they discuss the game’s release and development, the influences stemming from Bioshock, and the increasing popularity of the Epic Games store.
- Sarah reviewed Stellaris, and came to the conclusion that it’s a content-rick strategy game with a lot to offer, if you’re invested in the genre.
- She also rounded up all of us, and asked us what we’re playing this week, in her usual What-We’re-Playing-Wednesday post.
