Free ultra HD texture pack upgrades have also been deployed for Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Even more so now that Microsoft has hinted that cross-platform co-op might be available between Xbox One and PC. In this episode, we first talk about Borderlands 3 and whether Red Dead Redemption 2 will make it to the Epic Games Store as an exclusive. Steve Allison, head of the Epic Games Store, responded immediately: "We don't want to do that ever again". Before then, Valve's Steam was the go-to place for digital PC game purchases.

The "charm" I'm referring to is the current policy of Epic Games to give away a free game via its PC store, every fortnight. Fans are finding the way Epic Games grabbing exclusive titles for the store far from good.

The Mueller report may also include information that could reveal US sources or confidential details about ongoing investigations. But he emphasized that he shared their interest in transparency, and would try to release the report by mid-April.

Borderlands 3 is described as a shooter with RPG elements, and is being created by game developer Gearbox with 2K Games serving as its publisher. Some people evidently tried to counteract the negative reviews, as 255 positive reviews were posted on the same day.
