Let’s face it; you were dying to know a bit more about FL4K the Beastmaster. The potential of playing a pet class in Borderlands 3 is huge as it was proved with the launch of Gaige the Mechromancer in Borderlands 2. We can all agree that the IA controlling her pet was not the best, but when Deathtrap wasn´t throwing beams of lightning all over the place he was a beast in melee combat, so there is a lot of expectation about how FL4K will do since he has not one but three different pets. You can learn a bit more about him in the final video of the series introducing the Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3.
FL4K is the only robotic Vault Hunter in Borderlands 3 and he is obsessed with the hunt and his pets, of course. He will be accompanied by three different pets, and even if all of them are useful in combat each of them is specialized in a different area. They also offer passive bonuses and are linked to the active abilities that each of Fl4k’s skill trees grants to him.
The Hunter skill tree lets FL4K use a Spiderant Centurion as a pet. It is equipped with a prosthetic drill that will allow it to pierce enemies, but it also can attack with globs of acidic goo. The active ability that this tree provides is Rakk Attack!, and as you can imagine, it will cause several Rakks to dive-bomb targeted enemies. This trees focuses on improving critical hit chance and damage for Fl4kk and ultimately lets him score critical hits with weapons against any part of enemies.
Specializing in the Stalker skill tree will let our Vault Hunter summon a Jabber Sidekick that will taunt enemies, help him survive in several ways and even shoot enemies with its own gun. The active ability granted by this tree is Fade Away and it’s similar to Zer0’s. As you progress down the tree, you will be harder and harder to kill.
Master skill tree focuses on empowering your pet, a powerful Guardian Skag in this case. This tree provides a series of skills that focus on pet damage and utility, as well as an active ability that will teleport your pet to your target location with a burst of radiation damage.
FL4K and his trusty Guardian Skag – Borderlands 3
We hope FL4k the Beastmaster to be one of the favorite Vault Hunters of the players, but we need to wait until Borderlands 3 launches to see how the pet AI behaves this time. What about you? Which Vault hunter will you be playing?

This expansion is the biggest one so far, and was originally planned to be three separate updates. This release will bring the social multiplayer enhancements the development team wanted to make together with VR.
You can view the launch trailer below:
No Man’s Sky BEYOND Launch Trailer
According to the development team:
BEYOND is not only our biggest update to date, but it also feels like our most important. It feels like all the different strands of the game have come together and unified the experience more than any other update before it. The community has helped us get to this point in so many ways. Your feedback, encouragement and support fuels us and makes us strive for more and better every day. It is never easy when the standards you set for us and we set ourselves are so ambitious, but the highs certainly outweigh the lows and it is a privilege to be on this rollercoaster with you.
The expansion will launch on August 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Scope out a new gameplay trailer below:

Physical pre-orders for the title are now available – included in each edition are sticker sheets featuring AiAi and his friends.
Last week we presented the new expansion for No Man’s Sky. Beyond will be released next week, and it promises to greatly change the game through the addition of new features. It will include VR support and an enhanced multiplayer experience, as well as some other features that are yet to be unveiled. Developer Hello Games has published the launch trailer for the expansion today, and it looks amazing.
The first thing that comes to attention in the trailer is that it explains how absolutely everything in the game is procedurally generated. This may seem pretty obvious to anyone that has played the game so far but with the new social interaction possibilities that Beyond adds to No Man’s Sky, being aware that the game provides a unique experience for every player becomes even more relevant. Every other player has visited different places than you, and if you go exploring together, you will probably discover new places to explore that none of you have seen before.
The second important thing that the video shows is the Nexus, a brand new multiplayer hub that brings people together in No Man’s Sky like never before. Players will be able to show off the ships and equipment they have worked so hard to get, meet up with other players for adventuring, and socialize much more easily through this new shared social space.
No Man’s Sky – I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore
Also, if you are an old No Man’s Sky player, you probably are amazed at how the game has changed since it initially launched, as this is even more obvious with every new update.
We don´t really know where Hello Games will stop with No Man’s Sky, but it’s definitely become one of the games that has aged better. Every new feature complements the existent ones and helps the game to evolve into a more complex experience which should be in the games library of all the fans of space exploration. And the best thing is that they don´t even charge you for it.
noname studio and UNTIES have teamed up to create the PVP balloon brawler BATTLLOON. With a healthy dose of polish and a unique premise, does it do enough to earn a spot in your multiplayer rotation?
BATTLLOON is one of those games that almost anybody can figure out right away. Players take control of a round, balloon-like object. Only one button is available, which makes the player inflate to a massive size. Once you release that button, the air all comes out, propelling the player around every which way.
Sounds simple, right? While this premise is easy enough to understand, the game gets tricky when anywhere from one to three other players are thrown into the mix. Each stage the game provides throws players into an arena, and balloon aficionados must use this mechanic to bump into their friends and enemies so they hit the spikes surrounding the screen. The last person left alive wins the round, and the person who wins the most coins from these rounds emerges victorious.
It’s a straightforward premise, and it is something that would be right at home in the Mario Party series. There are some wrinkles in play to keep players on their toes – walls break down to reveal spikes, fans blow players every which way, and hazards make their appearance every now and again. It’s hard enough to contend with an enemy player hell-bent on your destruction, but when a giant meteor takes up a good chunk of the screen, things get a lot more hairy.
Unfortunately, the game does not offer much variety. Players will be able to choose between one of six different balloon-like creatures (that vary in stats and stature), but those looking for a suite of options a la Super Smash Bros. will be sorely disappointed in its spartan “what you see is what you get” approach. All stages are random, and there is no online play to speak of – only couch co-op can be chosen. Each stage certainly brings some variety to the table – starry skies, abandoned labs, undersea paradises, and other locales round out the stage list. However, there just isn’t a lot of stages to experience – many players will end up seeing all the game has to offer within an hour. It certainly has legs with its party-like nature, but more variety would have helped it stand out a bit more and would keep people coming back.
There aren’t a lot of options to choose from either. Players will be able to jump into a brief tutorial from the get-go, but other than the Battle and Training modes, there’s not much else here.
BATTLLOON has got a great premise and even greater aesthetics, but its paltry list of options prevent it from really standing out.
This review of BATTLLOON was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.
