Which consoles will Way to the Woods be released for?

Way to the Woods is an upcoming game that was shown at E3 2019, and it seems like a great game that people will be having a lot of fun with. However, one of the things a lot of people noticed is that it's not exactly obvious which consoles Way to the Woods actually releases for. So we compiled all available information below to give you an idea if you can play Way to the Woods on your favorite system.

Confirmed systems that will get Way to the Woods

So far Way to the Woods has been confirmed for Xbox One and PC (Windows). These two systems were confirmed during E3 2019.

Will we get Way to the Woods for Playstation 4 or Nintendo Switch?

We don't exactly know just yet. The trailer said that "Way to the Woods will be released for PC and consoles", and didn't specify which consoles, so it's a fair chance that it will be released for both Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 as well. However, the game was announced in the Microsoft presentation, so there's also a chance that it's a Xbox One-exclusive game. However, it seems strange that it says "consoles" in plural if that's the case.

Another option could be that Way to the Woods is a timed Xbox One exclusive game where it will be released for Xbox One and PC at the beginning, then later be released for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 at a later date.

Which consoles will Cyberpunk 2077 be released for?

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to be released on April 16th 2020, but a lot of people are still wondering exactly which consoles the game will be released on. There was a lot of speculation regarding this, but we finally have the answer, and Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will only be available for Windows on PC, so you are out of luck if you have a Mac or a system with Linux.

We have no idea if Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for Mac7iOS or Linux in the future, but I would not expect it to.

Will we get Cyberpunk 2077 for any Nintendo console like Nintendo Switch?

No, Cyberpunk 2077 will not be released for any Nintendo console, including Nintendo Switch. However, if the Witcher 3 is an example to go by, we might get Cyberpunk 2077 released for the next-gen Nintendo console, even though there is no word on that yet (obviously).

Will we get Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3?

Unfortunately Cyberpunk 2077 won't be released for either Plasystation 3 or Xbox 360, but only for Xbox One and Playstation 4. So now's a good time to upgrade to the next generation if you want to play Cyberpunk 2077.

How to play the Fallout 76 free trial for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Fallout 76 had a lot of problems and controversy when it was first released, but it has had a lot of updates and changes since then. But should you buy it? Luckily you no longer need to figure that out by reading, since there is a free trial available for anyone to try, so you can test the game out for yourself!

The game itself takes roughly 50GB of space, and requires an online connection to use. This also means that you will need Xbox Live Gold or Playstation Plus to play it on a console, but you can test it for free on PC without any subscriptions.

The trial will run from now until June 17th, so make sure to go ahead and test it as soon as you have time for it. There are no gameplay limits to the game, so you can play the entire thing if you manage to do it, but you will need to buy the game if you want to keep playing after the 17th of June.

Download and play the Fallout 76 trial on Playstation 4

To test Fallout 76 on Playstation 4, either go to the store on your console, or from a web browser on a computer or mobile. Once there, search for Fallout 76 and bring up the store page for it. Below the "Buy it now" option, there is another option called "Test Free Demo", so click on that. That will take you to the checkout menu, but with a sum of $0, so just keep going until the trial is added to your account.

The next step is to click on "Download now" to begin the download for your Playstation 4. As mentioned above, it's a 50GB download, so expect to spend a good while downloading it.

Download and play the Fallout 76 trial on Xbox One

Go to the Microsoft Store either on your Xbox One console or on a web browser from a computer or mobile, and search for Fallout 76. When you are on the product page, just click "download" and it will begin to download the free trial. 

Download and play the Fallout 76 trial on PC

You can download the Fallout 76 trial for PC on the Bethesda Store, so again, search for Fallout 76 from the store. Make sure to log in first though, or else the trial option won't show up. Anyone, once you are logged in and have found the Fallout 76 product page, click on "Download" to begin downloading it, and then just launch it once it's finished.

How to start playing the Commander Lilith & Fight for Sanctuary DLC for Borderlands 2

The Commander Lilith & Fight for Sanctuary DLC pack for Borderlands 2 is a brand new content pack that aims to bridge the story between Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3, and all owners of Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Handsome Collection can download this for free until July 8th.

In order to actually start playing the DLC, boot up Borderlands 2, and load a character that is at least level 30+. If you don't have that, make a new character and opt it to begin at level 30 to be able to get right into the DLC.

Once you are playing on a level 30+ character, go to any Fast Travel station and select the waypoint called "Fight for Sanctury". This will begin the DLC story, and you can return to play it at any time by using this travel station.

How to find Borderlands 3 VIP program codes to get points

The Borderlands VIP program allows you to collect points and get in-game rewards for all of the Borderlands games, including the upcoming Borderlands 3. One method for getting points is to find codes and redeem them at this website. These come from four different sources; e-mails, creators, vault or Diamond. However, the codes are generic, so you don't actually have to watch streamers to find their code, it's good enough to just find it in a spreadsheet and enter it.

The easiest way to find all the codes is to go to the Borderlands 3 subreddit and look for the sticked post. (Or just click here to go directly to the post). This post is updated whenever a new set of codes are released, so you will always stay up-to-date with the newest codes, and will be able to get a lot of points to spend on weapons, skins or Golden Keys. 

The codes stop working after a certain set of time, most often around 48 hours, so you should check back pretty often if you want to get all the Borderlands VIP program rewards. We don't know exactly when a new set of codes are released, so just check back every few days or so.

How to turn off weather effects (Forager)

The "Free Appreciation Update" that was released for Forager in June 2019 added weather effects to the game. A lot of players have waited a long time for this, but people with older computer quickly realized that it slowed their game down a lot, while also being very annoying at times. So, how do you turn off the weather effects in Forager?

The unfortunate answer is that it us currently not possible to turn the weather effects off. There is simply no options for it, not even in the "hidden options" in the game. However, they will patch this in the future, and we will update the guide once they do. Once this is patched, the option to turn off weather effects will be found in the main options menu.

How to get the Commander Lilith and the Fight For Sanctuary DLC for free (Borderlands 2)

"Commander Lilith and the Fight For Sanctuary" is a DLC for Borderlands 2 (and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection) that tells the story of the events that lead up to Borderlands 3. It also adds extra levels (max level cap is now level 80), a new tier of gear and some other awesome stuff, so go get it!

The DLC is available for free for both PC, XB1, PS4, PS4 and Xbox 360, but you will need to claim the game to your account prior to July 8th to get it for free. You will not have to download it, simply head to the digital store of your choice (Xbox Store, Playstation Store, Steam etc.) and find the DLC there. Add it to your cart and check out. Once you have done this, the DLC will permanently be tied to your account, so you can download it and play it in Borderlands 2 at any point in the future, even when it begins to cost money.

We don't know exactly what it will cost after the free time period is over, but it will apparently get a price tag. A few dollars seem likely.
