News | New Borderlands 3 event: Broken Hearts Day

Gearbox and 2K have announced a new Borderlands 3 event during The Community Love Letter: Broken Hearts Day. This event will go live later this month.

The new Borderlands 3 event is devoted to Valentine’s Day and, according to Valve, is perfect for heart pain. With Broken Hearts Day, various enemies have hearts flying around their heads. When the player breaks the hearts, different rewards come out. A broken heart can strengthen the party, the enemy can stand on the player’s side or the heart simply explodes in a pile of loot. The more broken hearts, the more rewards.

A total of five rewards are available during the event, including special skins and legendary weapons.

The event is going live at the same time as the release of the new patch later this month and is free for all Borderlands 3 players. The event lasts exactly one week. It is possible to turn off the event in the game menu. In addition to the news about this new event, Gearbox also announces that the maximum level in Borderlands 3 is going up with the first level cap increase. From the moment the Broken Hearts Day event goes online, the maximum Vault Hunter level is increased by three levels to 53. This gives the player three extra skill points.

In addition, Gearbox and 2K today announced additional details about the following additions to the game: True Vault Hunter Mode, Skippable Cutscenes, Guardian Rank Toggling, Event Toggling, Fight for Your Life Improvements, Mayhem 2.0, Twitch ECHOcast Extension Additions.

News | More clues hint to a new BioShock sequel

More evidence has surfaced that hint to a new BioShock game. Secret 2K studio in Novato is working on it.

The rumor that a secret studio of 2K Games is working on a new BioShock part has been going around for some time. Take-Two reported a while ago during a financial presentation that 2K Games is working on a ‘long-awaited’ new game. The new BioShock is code-named ‘Parkside’.

A similar statement was made last week by Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two, during a presentation of the quarterly figures. According to the CEO, the publisher currently has “the strongest development pipeline in history” and that fans can “continue to expect the biggest franchises.”

In the same week as this statement, a vacancy appeared on the 2K website. The studio is looking for an End Game developer who can start immediately in Novato, California. This is the same studio that is reportedly working on the next BioShock part, as can be read above.

An End Game developer deals with content that can be played after a game has finished. So if it is indeed about BioShock, then chances are that the game is already well underway.

A fanatical Redittor has set up a page listing a list of respected developers currently working in Novato. Many of these developers have worked on BioShock games earlier in their career.
There are a lot of clues that hint at a new BioShock, but as yet nothing is officially known. Nevertheless, it looks bright for BioShock fans.
