Potential Borderlands 3 Reveal Coming this E3

Borderlands 3 leak

UPDATE: The leak has been revealed as fake. See the reasons here. Original post below.


Thanks to a Reddit post from user ShineRise1, fans may have their first look at Borderlands 3, and they may not have to wait long for more details.

The original post has since been deleted, but a text-only version is available on Google Cache.

Though the following is nothing more than just a rumor, the information provided today offers a look at the logo for the game. The image also apparently features the game’s antagonist, as well as the reveal date of June 10.

According to the post, developer Gearbox has Borderlands 3 slated for a September 2018 release and will launch the title on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. Redditor ShineRise1 also notes a season pass that will accompany the game and include access to three expansions.

The post describes the game as the “darkest game in the saga” and links to a video showing Bordlerands-esque planets; the video has since been removed from Vimeo (original title and user can be seen on Archive.org), but some mirrors have been uploaded to YouTube.

In a comment on the post, ShineRise1 mentions that the game begins linear, but players eventually obtain a ship and travel to different planets in the game’s open world. The user stated: “Go to main mission, go to secondary missions, upgrade and personalize your ship, capture signals from space, discover destroyed ships, explore ancient ruins and a lot of other things.” ShineRise1 also mentioned that the game does not feature a battle royale mode, similar to those in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite.

An E3 reveal date makes sense, especially considering the six years since Borderlands 2‘s release, but many of the readers in the comments of the post are not so easily convinced.

At the very least, Gearbox has been fairly open about Borderlands 3‘s existence, and one of the employees practically confirmed another entry only a couple of days ago on Twitter.

Real or fake, OnlySP will continue to look further into the post, so make sure to keep up to date on our Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter for more info on Borderlands 3.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
