Battleborn's Pendles is a slippery sneak

The 27th Battleborn hero Pendles becomes available for the general public on August 4 (to purchase with a non-negligible sum of in-game currency), but he has been available for season pass holders for the past few days now.

I took the stealthy assassin through a few story missions and a bunch of competitive multiplayer, and he is now my favorite assassin, if not my favorite overall character to play.

Rogue assassin Pendles is out today for season pass holders, but 2K and Gearbox are already looking ahead to the 28th Battleborn hero to add to the roster, Ernest. There were some rumblings and dataminings about him previously, but now it's official.

From the looks of the teaser image, Ernest will be the sixth character from the Peacekeeper faction (leaving only the LLC and the Jennerit factions for the last two), and he's sporting a six-chamber grenade launcher, à la Team Fortress 2's Demoman. He also has a big, glowy egg on his back, which I can only speculate is some sort of nuke.

There's no word on where Ernest fits in the feud between the two other bird characters Toby and Benedict. He appears flightless like Toby, but much less adorable. His primary weapon seems more like Benny's rocket launcher than Toby's railgun and he apparently wasn't denied a combat position by the UPR, so it's likely Toby will resent him as well.

Blog Post: Demolitions Expert Ernest Revealed As Newest Battleborn Character

Sometime in the next couple months, a new playable character will be added to Battleborn's roster of fighters. Ernest will be the 28th Battleborn, an explosion expert bird complete with a grenade launcher and tactical army outfit. [Excerpt]

Ernest will be free to all players with 47,500 credits earned in-game. He can also be unlocked by using a Hero Key, which are included in the Season Pass. No specific date has been given for the official arrival of Ernest, but two other free DLC characters are currently in the works as well.

Past DLC characters include Alani and Pendles, who is available for download today for Digital Deluxe owners and Season Pass holders on all platforms. He will be available to all other players starting August 4. For more Battleborn check out our review, or our Test Chamber where we went hands on with the story missions

2K's Humble Bundle just got a little sweeter

2K's Humble Bundle just got a little sweeter screenshot

2K Games has added several extra titles to its ongoing name-your-price Humble Bundle.

Folks who pay around $9 or so to "beat the average" bundle purchase price will now also score Freedom Force, Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (remember this ill-conceived game?), and Railroad Tycoon 3. Nothing too wild or particularly generous, then.

I don't expect any of these additions to necessarily push people into buying the bundle on their own, but if you already paid for the second tier or higher, hey, more games! All told, this is a decent group. Nine bucks for Civilization V and Specs Ops: The Line alone has me tempted.

When You Can Get The Second DLC Hero In Battleborn

Gearbox Software's Battleborn has managed to completely tank on the market. The game has not managed to enter into any of the top charts, but that hasn't stopped Gearbox or 2K from failing their duties in providing the post-launch DLC they promised gamers, and they just announced when it'll be...

Battleborn has its own PlayStation Flash Sale

To those of you who aren't playing Battleborn, what's it going to take?

In addition to publisher 2K's current Humble Bundle that brings the "hobby-grade" team shooter to $15 with a handful of other titles roped in, Gearbox Software is now holding a single-game PlayStation Network Flash Sale. On PS4, Battleborn is $26.99 and its Digital Deluxe version is $29.99.

I feel bad for Darren and Chris and anyone else who wants to continue playing so long as there are folks to play with, but at the same time, I'm not exactly doing my part to help bolster the game's community. Right now, it isn't a matter of cost so much as a competition for time and attention in the multiplayer space, which other titles are dominating. Short of Battleborn becoming free-to-play and something I can install and try at 1:00am on a whim, I struggle to see myself taking that first step.

In other PSN deals (and to not end on such a dour thought), there's also a Superhero Sale happening.

Blog Post: Battleborn’s Second DLC Hero, Broadcaster Tools Out On June 28

Battleborn has had a rough go so far. It’s been just three months since the game’s release and you can already find it in a Humble Bundle (currently on offer).[Excerpt]

Starting now, you can begin using broadcasting tools and a spectator mode. This is available for private matches on PC as well as consoles.

Additionally, four more DLC characters are on the way, as promised in the season pass offering. The next one (the second of five), Pendles, will be out on June 28 for pass holders. 

Those that don’t own the season pass will be able to purchase him for 47,500 in-game credits beginning on August 4. The next DLC character will be revealed on June 28 when Pendles drops.

For more on Pendles, check out our previous coverage. You can also read our review of Battleborn for more.

Best Buy 'Black Friday in July' video game sales roundup

Best Buy 'Black Friday in July' video game sales roundup screenshot

Like last year, Best Buy is taking the Christmas-in-July idea to a new level with its next big sale. Tomorrow marks the retailer's Black Friday in July sale and just like the real Black Friday, most of the deals have already started up the Thursday before. Once again, it's an online-only sale, but unlike last year, the video game selection is much more promising.

Today, "My Best Buy" members are getting early access to tomorrow's deals which will presumably be open to those too lazy to sign up for a free My Best Buy rewards account. Seriously, you ought to take the time to just sign up here.

What's notable in the sale are console video games. Some of the best prices of the summer are popping up, including a rare chance to snag Wii U titles on the cheap.

Below we've listed all the best deals in the sale. The discounts are available today for My Best Buy Rewards members, and will seemingly open to the public tomorrow. We should also note that you can get an additional 20% off if you're a paid Gamers Club Unlocked member.

Battleborn's 27th hero Pendles releases on August 4

Battleborn's 27th hero Pendles releases on August 4 screenshot

It has been almost two months since the release of Alani, the Eldrid healer and 26th Battleborn hero. The small community of people still invested in Gearbox's FPS/MOBA have spent a lot of that time wondering "When are we going to get Pendles?" The answer is: soon.

Those with the season pass will get the Rogue stealth character in one week on July 28, with a hero key available to unlock him immediately. Pendles will be available for the general public a week after that on August 4, but like Alani he will be locked behind a 47,500 credit wall. It's technically possible to earn enough to do that just by playing, but it's a substantial total, so it would be wise to save up, even though the Lootpocalypse's discounted loot packs are currently in effect.

In addition to the news about the next hero, a new set of summer-themed skins will be releasing, including a Super Soaker-themed Montana, a hula dancer Ambra, and a balloon animal Aurox. These are premium, so expect to pony up real life money in order to show off some summer skin.

Dragon's Dogma hits $17 in new summer sale round

Dragon's Dogma hits $17 in new summer sale round screenshot

We're entering phase two of Green Man Gaming's 2016 summer sale with a focus on RPG titles. Now the sale isn't exactly 100% the RPG genre, but the noteworthy titles are at better pricing than what Steam was offering a few weeks ago.

Case in point is Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. During the Steam sale, we saw the price drop from $30 to $20.09. Not bad for the popular 2016-released PC port, but in GMG's sale the price drops further to $17.29 -- now a new historic low price.

While GMG also includes plenty of 2K/Gearbox titles such as Battleborn and Borderlands, at this point if you're going to spring the money for any of these you should just check out the latest Humble Bundle, which is way better in value by far. (We didn't bother listing those titles below for this very reason).

Blog Post: Grab Battleborn On PC For $15 With The Humble 2K Bundle 2

The latest Humble Bundle is 2K-themed, and features a number of games, the highlight of which is Battleborn, a game that released only a few months ago on May 3.[Excerpt]

In $1+ tier you will find Spec Ops: The Line, The Darkness II, Duke Nukem Forever. In the pay more than the average tier (which is currently at $8.05) you can add Sid Meier’s Civilization V, NBA 2K16, Mafia II: Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Battleborn start skin pack. At the $15 you get everything already mentioned and Battleborn, 230 Battleborn platinum currency, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Buying into the bundle also gets you a coupon for 40% off XCOM 2. You can grab the bundle here.

It's a pretty good haul for the price of admissions, especially considering Battleborn is still very much a new game. For our review of Battleborn, head here.

Battleborn is insanely cheap in this week's Humble Bundle

Battleborn is insanely cheap in this week's Humble Bundle screenshot

Much ado has been made about Battleborn's fledgling player count, a statistic that's especially worrying given that the game launched less than three months ago. That number's bound to increase now, all thanks to a particularly fantastic Humble Bundle.

Games by 2K are the star of this week's Humble Bundle, and Battleborn is the newest of the wares. It's sitting in the $15 category, a 75 percent discount over the $60 asking price on Steam right now. That's pretty cheap.

But, it's not even that much. Spending $15 gets access to Battleborn, but it also nets you all the other games in the sale right now. It comes with the entire $1 tier (The Darkness II, Spec Ops: The Line, and Duke Nukem Forever), the "pay more than the average tier" which is $6.89 at time of writing (Civilization V, NBA 2K16, and Mafia II), and the other game in the $15 tier (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel).

Really, this reeks of a last-gasp effort on 2K's part. It's clear that no one's buying Battleborn. Maybe the publisher can make a few extra bucks on it while it's still somewhat relevant. After that, don't be surprised if we see Battleborn go the way of Evolve on PC.

Humble 2K Bundle 2 [Humble]

Three New Competitive Multiplayer Maps Included In Battleborn’s Upcoming Update



Developer Gearbox is doing its best to make its hero-based multiplayer arena shooter, Battleborn, be a little more attractive.

The studio announced that Battleborn is getting a new update on July 20th, which will include three brand new competitive multiplayer maps. Each of these three maps will be available in a specific mode, for example Monuments can be played in the Incursion mode.

Here is everything you need to know about the three new maps:

Incursion Map – Monuments

Ekkunar, the last large green planet in the universe, has always been highly contested by those fleeing the darkened universe. All five factions have attempted settlements and bases on the planet, vying for territory and resources.

There are many points of interest on Monuments that hold strategic importance including…

  • There is a Skill Jump path over the middle of the map leads to your first sentry, and you’re going to want to defend this point aggressively. If left unguarded, agile enemy players can sneak in easily at this spot and get access to your sentry.
  • A high ledge overlooks the Minion lane entering your first sentry, and is a perfect place for a long-rage character to dominate. As a bonus, there’s a nearby Shard that can be farmed when your sniper isn’t raining pain down from this perch.
  • You’ll want to keep your Logistics nodes built and maintained to keep your Minion waves running at top speed.
  • Keep an eye out for a back route to sneak into your enemy’s Boss Sentry area.

Meltdown Map – Outskirts

Despite a planet-wide Thrall rebellion, Minrec has established a new recycling/appeasement facility in the lower city slums of the Jennerit planet, Tempest. Your team must race against the enemy to hurl minions into the incinerators and cause a meltdown to appease Minrec.

Outskirts has a number of key points you’ll want to be aware of, including…

  • Key turrets in the backfield of the map become increasingly important during the second half of the match. Outskirts has very strong sightlines for these backfield buildables, so you’re going to want to keep them up and running.
  • You’ll want to build your Super Minions before the enemy grinders move. Getting Super Minions all the way to the back grinders will be difficult.
  • Make it a point to claim the second floor of the Mausoleum in the center of the Slums lane. It’s an easy point to defend, and gives you control over the lane if you own it.

Capture map – Snowblind

The Peacekeeper Ocoban Mining Facility has been freed from Varelsi and Imperium control on the icy moon Bliss, thanks to the Battleborn! Now, race other teams to help rebuild the base by activating the energy collectors to re-power the facility. Look out, though! Winning reconstruction contracts can be a competitive and brutal affair!

  • On Snowblind, Point C is the most remote capture point but also the most important. It offers some of the strongest defense and longest sightlines into the rest of the map.
  • For long-range characters, hanging out at Point C will give you a clear view of nearly half the map.
  • If the enemy team owns Point C, use the bridge in the center map to pick them off with some long-range and careful shooting.

The post Three New Competitive Multiplayer Maps Included In Battleborn’s Upcoming Update appeared first on Gameranx.

Three new Battleborn multiplayer maps coming this Thursday

Three new Battleborn multiplayer maps coming this Thursday screenshot

Battleborn just celebrated the Lootpocalypse (recently extended for another week), wherein bosses were dropping legendary gear more frequently and loot packs cost less in-game currency to purchase. It had the effect of filling up the campaign matchmaking with players hunting for sweet loot to use in the competitive multiplayer. Soon enough, there will be more reason to dip over onto the player vs. player side of things; three new maps are releasing this Thursday.

Each multiplayer mode is getting a new map. Incursion gets Monuments, its second map set on the lush planet Ekkunar. Meltdown rounds out its locations with Outskirts, set in a city on the purple industrial planet Tempest. Finally, Capture gains Snowblind, its second map set on the icy moon Bliss. Maybe it's the mild OCD in me, but I wish Snowblind and Monuments had their settings switched, so each mode would have one map on each planet.

From the official Battleborn blog post, it sounds like the level design team has taken care to include elements in each map for all the different types of characters. There are skill jumps that offer different paths for your ISICs and Attikuses, there are sniper perches with high visibility for your Marquises and Thorns, and there are stealth-friendly backdoors for your Oscar Mikes and Deandes.

These three maps are going to be available for free. We'll see if that's enough of an incentive to get people to join the Capture matchmaking queue to actually try out Snowblind.

Battleborn's 'Lootpocalypse' promises increased gear drops this weekend

Battleborn's 'Lootpocalypse' promises increased gear drops this weekend screenshot

A few weeks back, Gearbox increased the drop rate of legendary gear in Battleborn's campaign mode. This weekend, it's cranking the dials even further in what it's calling the "Lootpocalypse." Not only will bosses be even more likely to drop legendary stuff through Monday, but non-boss major enemies will have a chance to drop rare and epic-level gear as well.

Those who mainly play in the competitive mode won't be left totally out in the cold, as purchasable loot packs will drop in cost, most notably the faction-specific packs that can contain (relatively bland) skins and taunts.

It's a nice gesture to those who are still playing, but I doubt it'll be enough to draw new players in or bring any who abandoned it back. Player population is still the biggest problem facing Battleborn as a multiplayer-focused game right now; this will likely just be a few drops in the bucket toward alleviating that issue.

What may help is the introduction of the three new planned multiplayer maps, which Gearbox intends to show off later today during its Twitch stream.

Other noteworthy qualifying titles includes Dishonored 2. Pre-order bonus on both games includes their successor for free: South Park: The Stick of Truth and Dishonored: Definitive Edition, respectively.

Other notable Bethesda discounts are Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls Online for $16.
