Borderlands PS4, Xbox One, And PC Remaster Or Re-Release Likely Coming

It looks like Borderlands could be getting a new lease on life. The RPG shooter first came out in 2009 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, but now it may be coming to current-gen consoles as well in the form of a Game of the Year edition.

Gematsu reports the Korean Game Ratings Board has rated a title called Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. While the game hasn’t been officially announced, the news indicates a remaster or re-release is coming on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, in South Korea at least. This would mark the first time Borderlands has been re-released, unlike its sequels Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which were remastered in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection in 2015.

In GameSpot’s review of Borderlands, Chris Watters gave the game an 8/10 and praised its satisfying gunplay, tons of items and rewards, unique playable characters, and distinct art style in a sci-fi setting. “Though the core action doesn’t change drastically over the course of the game, it is woven together in such a way that once it ensnares you, you’ll want nothing more than to plunge into Pandora at any chance you get,” said Watters.

“Combat is satisfying, and upgrading your skills and equipment is engaging. The constant stream of loot and experience is rewarding, and sharing it with some friends makes the experience that much richer and more exciting.”

In other Borderlands news, developer Gearbox says, despite rumors, a game called “Borderlands 3” will not be shown at E3 2018. There have been many hints that another Borderlands sequel is in the works, which leaves the statement up for interpretation and the possibility that the game is simply not called that. Here’s everything we know and want from Borderlands 3 at E3 2018.

Destiny 2’s Year 2 Reveal Livestream Coming Next Week, Here’s When And How To Watch

Bungie is gearing up to make what sounds like a big Destiny 2 announcement ahead of E3 2018. The studio announced today that its Year 2 livestream will take place on Tuesday, June 5. The stream, which you’ll be able to watch on Twitch and here on GameSpot, begins at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET.

The reveal event will offer a first look at what Bungie has lined up for Destiny 2’s second year. This includes “some big ideas for how we’re going to transform your Guardian lifestyle and reinforce your hobby as an interplanetary hero.”

A number of Destiny 2 developers will appear on the stream, including game director Steve Cotton and project lead Scott Taylor. “We’ll respond to a bunch of community feedback and unveil some other things you haven’t even been looking forward to… yet,” Bungie said. “We’ll top it all off with a look at a new Roadmap with exciting new promises for everyone.”

The reveal event is just the beginning, as Bungie says it is only the “beginning of a conversation that will last all summer long.” We’re expecting to see and hear more about Destiny 2 Year 2 content at E3 2018.

Following Warmind, Destiny 2’s next big expansion is coming this fall. It will introduce an “incredibly engaging new mode,” according to publisher Activision.

Activision’s Coddy Johnson said recently that this new mode introduces a “whole new style of play for first-person shooter gaming generally and certainly for the shared-world shooter space that Destiny created.” He added: “It’s a really exciting development. It’s one of the things we think will really speak to the community when it comes out in the fall.”
