Borderlands 3 is in developement

Posted on April 25, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

Many people wondered where Gearbox would go after their most recent game Battleborn launches on May 3, now it seems we have our answer. At a panel (which your truly did not attend sadly) yesterday at PAX East studio CEO Randy Pitchford said it’s no secret there’s “going to be another Borderlands. We don’t even know if we’re going to call it” said Picthford. “We could call it Borderlands 4 for all we know.”

Whole Randy can sometimes be a bit eccentric this is essentially a low key announcement that we will indeed be getting another installment in the much loved Borderlands franchise. With three games already completed and several expansions and extra content for the first three and all have been well received so it just makes good sense for them to do another. art director Scott Kester was named in the panel as also heading up this project (so expect the same look as all the other games) while writing will come from Mikey Neumann a veteran of the series, and the head writer for Battle born.


One small hint was dropped as to when this game will take place, Neumann said in the panel about scooter a character whom he voice ““I did this whole Scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard,” said Neumann. He added nothing was official at present, though.” perhaps a child of scooter? Either way I can for sure tell you that the game will feature twisted humor, a lot of bullets, and a decent story line.

Personally I have not played a Borderlands since 2 but maybe a new franchise will convince me that its time to come back to the cell shaded world of tomorrow.


Battleborn characters Ghalt and Deande showcased in new videos

Posted on January 25, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

Battleborn, the new multiplayer shooter from Gearbox just got some new video content.  Deande, and Ghalt are featured in new video content released today. Ghalt wields dual shotguns, has a gap closing hook, and can deploy traps. Deande appears to be much more stealth oriented with a melee attack and a cloak that makes her invisible.

There is a lot of footage in the two new trailers, players new to the game will notice that Gearbox’s trademark cell shaded look is also present in the new team based co-op shooter. The RPG style skill system is also shown, appearing to be a strand of DNA like choices which allow the player to “build” different ways. Mostly what I take away from these two trailers is that this is going to be a very combat oriented game, with fast paced shooting bolstered by objective based game play. Very little is currently know about Gearboxes co-op MOBA style shooter, but a beta earlier this year was well received by those who were able to play.

Battleborn will see a full release in May and there was a beta preview late last year, during which players got a very small taste of the new games world and characters. Hit the jump to see the videos and look out for our review of Battleborn when it releases in May.

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep Revealed As Borderlands 2 Fourth Campaign DLC

Posted on May 2, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Anthony Burch, writer for Gearbox, posted a picture that teased what is to come for the next piece of campaign DLC via twitter (which has since been removed). Regardless of the removed picture, the fourth piece of Borderlands 2 DLC (that is part of the Season Pass) has been revealed to day and is confirmed as “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.” Owners of the Season Pass will get this as part of their “four campaign add-ons” when they purchased the Season Pass, others will have to fork out 800 MSP ($10).Read More


Borderlands 2 DLC #2 Says Hello To Mr. Torgue

Posted on November 16, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Just confirmed via Mr. Torgue’s Twitter account, it appears that the next DLC installment for the ever popular Borderlands 2 will hit marketplaces next week on November 20th! Just in time for my Thanksgiving holiday break, on yeah. I guess I know what I will be playing.

Leaked just nearly a month ago was “Torgue’s Campaign Of Carnage”. Strangely enough, there’s not much information on what this “Campaign of Carnage” actually is. It almost sounds like Mad Moxxi’s Underdome from the name of the DLC, but I highly doubt it’s anything like that because if you look at the trophy list (scroll to the bottom) for the PS3 version, it doesn’t seem like that is the case.

Either way, I expect new details about this mystery DLC to be out very soon as it only has a few day left before it releases. If you have been living in a skag pile and haven’t picked up Borderlands 2 yet because you don’t think it’s worth your money then check out our review. Maybe that will sway you into picking up this awesome game!


First Borderlands 2 DLC Leaked?

Posted on October 10, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Borderlands 2

UPDATE: I’ve found some screenshots to go along with this story as well (after the jump).

According to some PC tech savvy people and the trophy list over at PS3trophies.com the first (presumably) dlc for Borderlands 2 will revolve around a new area called Oasis. It will also, again presumably, be called “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty.” Not really sure what the pirate trend is all about this year, but anything Borderlands 2 makes me all for it!

Gearbox Investigating Badass Tokens Glitch in Borderlands 2

Posted on September 25, 2012 by Broken Joysticks

For those who are unfamiliar with Badass Tokens, they are a part of a new system called the Badass Rank which replaces the gun proficiency of the first game. For completing a certain number of in-game challenge will award you the tokens which you can spend on stat upgrades. It was brought to gearbox’s attention in their forums that some players are experiencing a glitch that resets their Badass Token collection. When the glitch occurs, the tracker shows the challenge completed but they are unable to earn that token back. Not only that but the upgrades that were purchased with the tokens are vanishing too.Read More


Mechromancer Not The Only New Class Coming To Borderlands 2?

Posted on September 21, 2012 by Joshua Rust

With the release of Borderlands 2 just a few short days ago, you would think the hype for this game is over. Wrong! Randy Pitchford, CEO & Executive Producer, has teased some more information about even more classes are a possiblity for Borderlands 2.

Here are a few thing that Randy Pitchford had to say in a Q&A:

“We created the ability in Borderlands 2 to add additional characters because we want to use that ability. ”

“The Mechromancer is the first one. I hope to do more. The success of the Mechromancer will help to define this. Our ambition and passion and our fans requests will also contribute to decision making about what we do.”

Borderlands 2 Skill Tree Builder Is Live!

Posted on September 7, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 is my most anticipated title of 2012. While the days are going by (11 to go from today) Gearbox keeps feeding us more and more new information. Today they launched the skill tree builder for everyone to check out. It gives you a preview as to what you want to do with your character – plan ahead so to speak. Unfortunately, the Mechromancer’s skill tree isn’t available – only the four launch characters.

Here are the direct links to each characters page, though I’m not sure if you can go directly to them because of the age gate.

Maya, The Siren’s Skill Tree

Salvador, The Gunzerker’s Skill Tree

Axton, The Commando’s Skill Tree

Zer0, The Assassin’s Skill Tree

If those don’t work, you can access this through the Borderlands 2 website, then click on Characters then when you get to that page, click on the character you want to view the skill tree for. Lastly, once you get to the prefered character page you click on View Skill Tree.

Borderlands 2 will release September 18th – which is not soon enough!


Borderlands 2 Mechromancer Coming October 16th

Posted on September 5, 2012 by Joshua Rust


Borderlands 2 is only a few short weeks away and no one is more excited about this than us! Gearbox has been showing off the 5th playable character, but has yet to give us an exact release date – until now. The Mechromancer will hit marketplaces roughly about a month after the Borderlands 2 September 18th release date. The Mechromancer will be $10 (or 800 MSP) when she arrives on the marketplace October 16th. Or depending on where you pre-ordered the game, you will get her free as a redeemable code.

For those unfamiliar with the Mechromancer, you can check out our coverage here.

In addition to the Mechromancer, Gearbox has also announced a Season Pass for $30 – which will include four add-ons.

Again, Borderlands 2 launches September 18th and the Mechromancer DLC will hit October 16th. So who’s excited? I know many of you have been following this game for a while, who are you planning on as your starter character?


Gearbox Reveals More Details On The Mechromancer

Posted on August 13, 2012 by Broken Joysticks

Some new information has emerged about Borderlands 2’s fifth character class; the Mechromancer.

The Mechromancer is a kind of cyber punk-looking character with goggles,  pigtails and a robotic arms, capable of summoning a giant robot called Deathtrap that when released, draws fire away from the player. Currently still unnamed, Gearbox described her as their “cutest” design ever and her skill tree is being designed around how great players are in the game.
