PC Gamer Weekender adds Battleborn and more pre-release playables

If you live near London, your March 5 and 6 weekend just got a bit busier. Three more pre-release games have been confirmed for The PC Gamer Weekender: Battleborn, Caretaker Sacrifice, and Arenhack, meaning you can play them weeks or months before anybody else.

As you may already know, Battleborn is the next shooter from the creators of Borderlands, letting players pick from more than 20 characters to play through co-op and competitive missions. Caretaker Sacrifice is an adventure to determine the final fate of humanity at the end of time (no pressure though). And Arenhack is a competitive strategy game where you can hack and sabotage your opponents' machines before the fight ever begins.

They join Dark Souls 3, Street Fighter 5, and many more games in an increasingly comprehensive pre-release lineup. Even if you don't want to get your hands on upcoming games, there are still plenty of other reasons to head to the event at the Old Truman Brewery. Best of all, one-day tickets are still on sale for £9.99, but they're going fast - if you want to get in on the savings (or upgrade to a Weekender+ Pass for two days of early access and other perks), you should act soon.
