Far Cry 4 villain wears that suit as an homage to his mother

Ubisoft released an interview with Far Cry 4 executive producer Dan Hay that tip-toes around the relationship between the game's striking villain, Pagan Min, and its returned-home-to-spread-his-mother's-ashes protagonist, Ajay Ghale. Lots of maternal stuff going on here. Can't wait for some psychoanalysis.

VizionEck wants you to rethink first-person shooters

I had the most confused look on my face watching this video of VizionEck, a nontraditional first-person shooter game for PlayStation 4. It feels weird to even call it an FPS. We previously saw an abstract teaser trailer that...

Gearbox explains why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't Borderlands 3

Developer diaries generally tend to be fairly niche videos that cover the specifics of creating a game. However, this one -- the first in a series -- takes a broad strokes approach and ends up being more interesting than mos...

Go ahead and 3D print these Evolve figures, you early adopter

I have no idea what people with 3D printers do. Do they ever print more 3D printers? I'd probably print statues of myself because I'm extremely vain like that. I'd give one to all my neighbors, because I assume that they all...

Cliff Bleszinski to draw $1 salary until new venture is profitable

No one can accuse Cliff Bleszinski of going into his Boss Key endeavor with the mindset that it's a cash grab. It's just the opposite, in fact. Until the company's able to turn a profit, Bleszinski will get almost nothing out...

Confirmed: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will have audio

A new behind-the-scenes video for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has confirmed that the game will indeed have audio. Guns will have the pew pew noises, dudes will go "oh no you shot me how did you know bullets were my weakness!?. Oh, and there will be lots of explosions.

Edge! Titanfall's second DLC, Frontier's Edge, doesn't have a release date

Seriously, why announce a $10 DLC pack that's just three maps, and we can't even get a release date? Lame. "Today, we would like to announce Frontier’s Edge, the second DLC pack for Titanfall. Pushing the battle to the ...

Help us decipher this Battleborn tweet from Gearbox's Randy Pitchford

This morning, Gearbox Software announced its next game, Battleborn, a cooperative first-person shooter that has elements traditionally found in multiplayer online battle arenas like League of Legends. Or, put another way: Perfect. I've been in the market for a hobby-grade co-op campaign with meta-growth and choice.

by Kyle MacGregor

Battleborn is the next big game from Gearbox Software, and, much like the developer's Borderlands series, it's looking to put a unique spin on the first-person shooter.

Billed a "hero-shooter" by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, the title infuses MOBA elements into its narrative-driven co-op and competitive multiplayer in place of Borderlands' hallmark loot-heavy RPG flare. The story, penned by former Destructoid editor Aaron Linde, is set in the distant future in a "science fantasy" universe on the brink of destruction.

Battleborn is slated to release sometime during Take-Two Interactive’s upcoming fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
