2K Games has announced that Borderlands 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC, but only for a limited period of time. 2K Games stated that the game will arrive on other store in April of 2020.

Of course, after 2K announced exclusive deal with Epic, people started review bombing Borderlands 2 on Steam. But Valve‘s new anti-review bomb system removed those — over 4000 reviews — from rating, making the first case of “off-topic reviews” marking.

Borderlands 3 will release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 13.

Ubisoft announced that they chose to make Anno 1800 a Epic Games Store exclusive after “the successful launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2“.

Like The Division 2, Anno 1800 will be only available on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store. And only who pre-ordered the game on Steam will get their copy through Steam. Steam users also won’t be able to participate the open beta.

And this time, they also announced that “Pre-orders on Steam can be made until the release of the game”.

“Skyrim Grandma” Will Be in The Elder Scrolls VI

In their The Elder Scrolls 25th Anniversary stream Bethesda announced that YouTuber Shirley Curry, well known as “Skyrim Grandma”, will be on The Elder Scrolls 6 as the result of a fan petition.

Shirley Curry is an over 80 year old grandmother who post videos of herself playing Skyrim as well as other RPGs on YouTube and got famous when one of her videos was posted to Reddit.

The petition started because the The Elder Scrolls 6 won’t be released anytime soon — which means she may not get to play it — and Bethesda is known for including dedicated fans of their series into their games.
