Read all about it!
It’s Saturday morning and that can only mean one thing – yep, it’s time for another of our Weekly News Roundups, where we bring you all the news from the last week and pop into one handy article. And by some massive coincidence, here it is:
Borderlands 3 gameplay revealed
Gearbox Software gave us our first look at Borderlands 3 gameplay footage during a livestream on Twitch on Wednesday. The reveal gave us a glimpse at some of the new weapons on offer as well as the different forms of parkour and intergalactic travel.
Borderlands 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store and sees Ashly Burch return as Tiny Tina. The game is set for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13.

Epic Games acquires Rocket League
Epic Games has announced that it has made moves to acquire developer Pysonix, along with its hugely successful game Rocket League.
Since it’s release in 2015, Rocket League’s popularity has soared across all platforms and Psyonix was quick to reassure the player base in a statement:
“Your first question to news like this might be, “What does this mean for Rocket League and its community?” We’re happy to say that the answers are only positive. Rocket League always has been and always will be a community-driven game, and now that we have joined forces with Epic, we will be able to serve our community in even bigger and better ways!”

PlayStation Plus games revealed for May
Sony has revealed May’s PlayStation Plus games lineup.
While we are still trying to get used to the lack of PS3/PSVita titles on offer, the two games we have this month are welcome additions to any
backlog game collection.
What Remains of Edith Finch is the first game in the lineup and has ‘long been touted as something of a masterpiece, with a sombre story made all the better with some delightful design and intricate direction, it’s your essential rainy-day game.’
The second game, Overcooked, is a game that everyone should play – without exception. It’s best played with a friend so the two of you can get ridiculously angry at each other for your (lack of) vegetable chopping management and/or burger building skills.
