Battleborn to go partially free-to-play in the near future

Battleborn, the recently released first-person hero shooter from the developers of Borderlands, mostly scored well among critics, but has been little more than a flop among gamers (thanks in part, no doubt, to the release of Blizzard's Overwatch).

Wasteland 3 invites you to explore frozen Colorado with a friend

Given the the immense crowdfunding success of Wasteland 2, it was a pretty safe assumption that we'd someday see a Wasteland 3. That possibility became a reality today, with developer inXile officially unveiling Wasteland 3 and dropping a few details on what to expect.

Imagining just how much Microsoft and Lamborghini would charge for the ultra-limited edition Xbox One S you see here is kind of painful to think about, but the good news (we guess) is that the two companies aren't even giving you a chance to worry about price.
