Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Confirmed by Voice Actor

A sequel for PlayStation 4-exclusive title Horizon Zero Dawn is seemingly confirmed by voice actor Janina Gavankar.

Back in February 2019, developer Guerrilla Games celebrated second anniversary of release for their 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn that sold over 10 million copies worldwide to become one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games.

That level of success pretty much guarantees a sequel for this PS4-exclusive but rather than speculating, we have actress Janina Gavankar, who voiced a character named Tatai in Frozen Wilds DLC confirming its existence lately.

At Star Wars Celebration 2019 ongoing event on Chicago, Gavankar met a fan who was cosplaying as her character Iden Versio from story campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II, telling Janina that she got into playing HZD because of her.

Gavankar only replied her back saying,
It's incredible, wait 'til you see the sequel. You're gonna die. I know some secrets! You're gonna die.

Their brief conversation was recorded on camera and Reddit user ninjyte pointed out to that Twitch clip, which has now been removed but since people never forgets anything on internet; we have found access to that moment.

Gavankar has only confirmed that a sequel is indeed in works and her character Tatai from Frozen Wilds expansion is returning as well. It seems that the game is far from completion and probably in some early stage of development.

Even though Sony is skipping E3 2019, they can simply make a grand reveal through one of their upcoming State of Play episode. It can also launch sometime in 2020, same year when PlayStation 5 is also eyeing for release.

Two years have passed and fans are excited to get a HZD sequel in spite of no announcement or anything from Guerrilla Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment but there are no reasons for them not wanting to continue making the next game.

Upon release, Horizon Zero Dawn turns out to be one of the most popular new PS4 franchises that surpassed other exclusive titles like God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End on the same platform in overall sales worldwide.

After unexpected review bombing earlier, Borderlands 2 suddenly becomes one of most played games on Steam.

When developer Gearbox Software launched popular looter shooter title Borderlands 2 back in 2012, it became very popular among players and sold over 13 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most successful game from publisher 2K Games.

Despite the game getting review bombed at the platform after an unpleasant discovery of it being an exclusive to Epic Games Store, players are taking their interest on the title again by giving it a massive boost on Steam charts.

At March 31, number of concurrent players started to rise above an average flow and by April 8, it quickly became one of the top 5 most played games on the platform when those numbers were pumped up to 59K and more.

Borderlands 2 were an all-time high with a simultaneous number of 123,596 players back in September 2012 and this recent climb is nearly half of that. Aside from in anticipation of upcoming sequel, there are other potential reasons for this rise.

The game is now on sale at 75% discount on store and recent arrival of The Handsome Collection with remastered graphics were offered for free who already owned it and these factors surely contributed to spike some interest.

Besides, many players were just getting prepped up to get back to the series that is back after seven years and perhaps they want to show Gearbox that they are more than happy to wait until 2020 until exclusivity of Epic Store expires.

Whatever the real reasons were behind this sudden growth, it still is amazing that fans showing love to beloved Borderlands action role-playing shooter franchise, so much so that they gave it an impressive 500% increase in average player count.

Fans of the series cheered in joy when Borderlands 3 was revealed at PAX East last month but a major fraction among them from PC platform were angry when it was revealed to be an Epic Games Store exclusive for first six months.

They didn't like it a bit and started review bombing Borderlands 2 on Steam and while Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford added more fuel to that rage machine; Steam actually took steps in retaining its former "Overwhelmingly Positive" score.

Players can join and team up in both local and online multiplayer game with fellow Vault Hunters despite having different levels or mission progress status. If you preferred classic co-op rules of Borderlands 2 better, that is also an option.

Like it was leaked though a series of now non-existing Tweets, the game indeed is launching on PC as a timed exclusive for Epic Games Store and will not be available on other digital outlets until April 2020, which irritates majority of players on PC platform.

Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

It was leaked via a series of official Tweets that Borderlands 3 would arrive on September 13 as an Epic Games Store exclusive.

Only days have passed since developer Gearbox Software announced their much anticipated action role-playing game Borderlands 3 in association with publisher 2K Games at PAX East 2019 followed by a "Mask of Mayhem" teaser earlier.

No select platform for this upcoming looter shooter has been confirmed yet and so is an official date of release but apparently PC version of the game is going to be an Epic Games Store exclusive, according to a now deleted official Tweet.

Among a series of Tweets from Borderlands official Twitter account was a release date of September 13 when they referenced the game as "Mayhem" just like many times they did before but ended up deleting it because it was way too early.

If that is true then previous theories of it coming on October 2019 is debunked and a brief clip that was posted in a follow-up Tweet also has hint at the title being heading towards Epic Games' digital distribution platform on launch as well.

Lucky for us, Twitter user Wario64 has pulled it out of internet archive and posted for everyone to take a look at.

People initially thought of it as a sort of "April Fool" prank but then again, why would someone joke about a long-awaited game that is nothing but a jerk move unless it was not meant to come out right now and maybe on a later date?

There is a brief footage on the second deleted Tweet which has the Epic Games Store logo at bottom left beside 2K and Gearbox, which doesn't give away anything about its exclusivity essentially but surprisingly, we see no logo for Steam there.

RELATED: Wolfenstein: Youngblood Story Trailer

Whatever doubts anyone had on their minds regarding these sudden leaks are later addressed by Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and he gave us some pretty strong hints at where they are going in terms of distribution in a series of Tweets.

Pitchford directly said nothing about their stand on the situation of the game being a timed exclusive and neither denied nor confirmed anything officially.



RELATED: Metro Exodus Adds Game Plus Mode

Pitchford also pointed out that the upcoming FPS title would be a timed exclusive for at least six months on Epic. He also brought up their support for cross-platform play for PC and consoles but irritated fans are still vouching for releasing it to Steam.

Though he cleverly pointed everyone to 2K Games and Take-Two Interactive for further queries by stating they do not decide which partner or platform to choose when it comes to circulation, fans are yet not happy about moving over to Epic Games.

RELATED: Borderlands 2 VR Comes to PlayStation

Being an Epic Games Store exclusive is not actually a bad thing but considering their launcher having a series of issues including account security; Steam is a better choice for PC gamer base who does not like to shop on other platforms.

Besides, all of previous Borderlands games are still on Valve's distribution outlet and are quite popular on the platform. Therefore, making Borderlands 3 a high-profile exclusive to their rival store makes it somewhat awkward and very surprising move.

Whether or not they are all back in planet Pandora, there are giant robots and hideous mutant creatures wandering around desert wastelands cities, and swam areas to get shot. Two new villains are introduced as well without given any details on them.

Borderlands has a tradition of showering players with tons of loot mostly in forms of weapons and developers have included a ridiculous number of guns for the next chapter, which is more than one billion and some of them even have legs!

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Announced

After 15 long years, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is officially announced to come out in 2020.

Based on a Dungeons & Dragons like tabletop RPG title, developer Troika Games and publisher Activision came up with an action role-playing game titled Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines in 2004 that involved blood-sucking vampires.

For long, there were no talks for a sequel and Bloodlines rights went to Paradox Interactive in 2015, who then teamed up with Hardsuit Labs to officially announce Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Despite having potential, the original Bloodlines title got competition from renowned games like Halo 2, Half-Life 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, leading to a market sale of less than a hundred thousand copies worldwide.

Initial pitching of ideas to bring back one of the biggest cult RPGs started even before Paradox acquired the IP for World of Darkness in 2015. Set on city of modern day Seattle, the game will take players to stalk the streets once again as an undead revenant.

In the midst of a growing bloody civil war within various fractions of vampires, you would have to prey on or form alliance with creatures that lurks into darkness. With some fan-favorite characters reappearing, old-school fans would have a nice callback as well.

Although it took a solid 15 years for the franchise by White Wolf to make a comeback through Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, many would truly appreciate an amazing experience it will offer to explore a new narrative from World of Darkness.
