Borderlands 3 is officially here and gamers are already customizing the skill trees of their favorite Vault Hunters. The game also includes a wide variety of weapon types. Today we will dig into the pros and cons of the Borderlands 3 eight basic weapon types.  First and foremost it is important to note that players only start out with two weapon slots in Borderlands 3. Gamers will need to play through the first hour or so of the game before they can equip a third weapon. Players will leave Pandora on a spaceship and will then unlock that third slot. Players will unlock their fourth and final slot after playing through a long quest of the planet of Promethea. Most players will likely be able... Read more...
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) might be in a bit of disarray with Spider-Man's departure, but for fans of Fortnite, there is another crossover to keep an eye on. Epic Games is bringing a bit of Borderlands flair to its wildly popular Fortnite game, as part of its v10.20 update, otherwise known as Season X Mayhem. "Bring on the Mayhem. Cross the border into crazy and check out a Rift Zone based on Pandora. This collab also includes themed Challenges with free rewards, Psycho and Claptrap cosmetics, and more," Epic Games explains. Players can grab the Pscyho Bundle from the shop and then travel around with Claptrap on their backs. There is a new Pandora Rift Zone on the map. It brings Bordland's... Read more...

If you are new to Borderlands or want to revisit some of the previous titles before the next one comes out, good news—Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free to play this weekend. Well, for some users. The free weekend has already begun and runs until Sunday, April 7, ending at 11:59 pm PT for Xbox One gamers and 10 am PT on the same day for PC players, via Steam. What about PlayStation 4 players? Unfortunately, they get left out of this round. For those who are able to participate, there is a lot of content available.

Ever since the release of its SHIELD Android TV device last spring, NVIDIA hasn't slowed down in its attempt to bring as many hot games to the platform as possible. While many of the top-tier game releases have been tied to the company's GeForce Now streaming service, Android-native titles do come along every once in a while. In the past, we've seen NVIDIA help usher in Half-Life 2, Portal and Trine 2 on Android. Now, it brings us Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The Pre-Sequel is the third entry in the Borderlands series, although it's more of an "in-between" release than a sequel to Borderlands 2. It's also quite unlike that second-last... Read more...
When a game like Borderlands is as funny as it is, as action-packed as it is, and features no shortage of interesting characters, it's inevitable that a movie is going to happen. And that's just what's going down thanks to a new partnership between Lionsgate, Take-Two, and Gearbox. I admit - as a rabid fan of the Borderlands series, the thought of a movie adaption concerns me. It seems like the amount of great movies that have transitioned well from a game are few, and perhaps could be counted on one hand (thanks for dragging that ratio down, Uwe Boll!) But, this production does have one trick up its sleeve: it has Avi Arad producing it. "Who's Avi Arad?", you ask? Well, he's none other than... Read more...
2K Games and Gearbox Software has a magnificent duo of gaming releases to announce today, starting off with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The set will include both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which was released late last year. The Handsome Collection will also come with downloadable content for both titles. While that’s all well and good, there’s an even greater bundle available that will not only bring out your inner child, but will also empty your wallet. If you’re one of the lucky 5,000 people that will have the opportunity to purchase the Borderlands: Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition for Xbox One and... Read more...
Gamespy's multiplayer servers are getting unplugged and going dark on May 31, and as the deadline approaches, game publishers are scrambling to find new homes. For 2K, the solution is simple -- send its more popular games over to Steamworks. That includes the first Borderlands titles and several Civilization games, which are all headed to Steam. "Beginning May 31, 2014, Borderlands 1 and select titles from the Civilization catalog will temporarily go offline while service is transitioned to Steamworks," 2K announced in a blog post. "During the transition, players will experience interruption of several features, including online play, matchmaking and voiceover Internet protocol (VOIP) where applicable.... Read more...
As if 2014 hasn't already delivered plenty of video gaming goodness to keep you occupied well into the weekend (as in, every single weekend), here's a bit of news that'll have avid RPGers excited: Borderlands is back. The next rendition of the heralded title will be a "pre-sequel," described as a "full-on co-op shooter RPG set in the five year gap between Borderlands 1 & 2)." It will reportedly be set on the moon of Elpis, and players can select "one of Jack/Johns four lieutenants to play as in Athena The Gladiator, Wilhelm The Enforcer, Nisha The Lawbringer and Fragtrap, a militarized claptrap." Per usual, you'll be overwhelmed by the amount of weaponry options, and yes, laser-based weapons... Read more...
Depending on how big a fan of the Borderlands series you are, the latest news out of Gearbox might depress or excite you. Company CEO Randy Pitchford spoke out late last week that Borderlands 3 isn't in development; instead, Gearbox is focusing on not one, but two new IPs. It should be stressed that Pitchford isn't writing-off the idea of another Borderlands game. Rather, this just isn't the time for one. He states, "We have more to do in the franchise", which makes it clear that we will see another title down the road. Ultimately, given the unbelievable success of the last game, that shouldn't strike anyone as a surprise. Fans of the series are not out of luck between now and Borderland 3's... Read more...
Do you like Borderlands 2? Do you like killing stuff in Borderlands 2? Well, if you happen to live in the US, you'll want to head on over to the special site seen at the bottom of this post to sign-up and enter Gearbox's '$100,000 Loot Hunt' contest. Taking part is simple: Beginning on October 11th, hop into Borderlands 2 and, as Claptrap states, "do what comes naturally". Each day, you'll have to meet a target in order to qualify for that day's prizes, and even if you don't manage to win a real-life prize, you will still reap the benefits of improved in-game loot. Prizes include PSP Vitas for week 1, Turtle Beach headsets for week 2, NVIDIA SHIELD + Falcon Northwest PC for week 3 (that sure... Read more...
With the release of Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, we were led to believe that Borderlands 2 would be seeing no more DLC. As it turns out, we're just not going to be seeing more DLC that introduces vast new worlds. At PAX Australia, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, who just last month showed us around the Gearbox offices and his humble abode, announced that the biggest piece of upcoming DLC is called Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, which increases the level cap by 11, adds a "Digistruct Peak Challenge", and allow gamers to "over level" the game, in order to continue getting a challenge that "Ultimate" would imply. That "over level" feature is one I'm curious about, because the Borderlands series... Read more...
It's hard to tell if this is a semi-elaborate publicity stunt, or if it's a warning to those who decide to catch a few Zs at work. Gearbox's Steve Gibson was allegedly found sleeping on a couch by a co-worker who quickly snapped-up a photo and posted it to Twitter. As far as Gibbie is concerned, we hope that Gearbox assumes his nap was due to the long hours he was putting in. One thing the picture-snapper didn't notice (again, allegedly - I have a hard time believing this) is that in the background, a perfectly-placed poster board for Borderlands 2's forthcoming (and fourth) DLC sits behind a cage. Its name? "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep". It's since been confirmed by Gearbox,... Read more...
