Borderlands 3 birthday event continues with Eridium flash sales

Borderlands is certainly a more generous ten-year-old than I ever was. While I was off doing laser tag with some nerds, Borderlands 3 is celebrating a decade of existence by giving away heaps of loot, legendaries and cold hard cash on a weekly basis. Show Me The Eridium, the third weekly birthday event, is dropping cash fast and hard. With prices slashed across sharp outfits…

Borderlands 3 birthday bash blasts off with better boss drops this week

10 years of Borderlands, is it? A whole decade since four cel-shaded bounty hunters hopped off a bus and murdered their way across a planet to the whiny twangs of Cage The Elephant? Blimey, where does the time go? Well before Destiny, Borderlands married Diablo's gear grind with run n' gun blasting in an open-world romp, kicking off a generation of shooting bloody numbers out…

Troy Baker isn’t in Borderlands 3 because Gearbox “wouldn’t go union” [Updated]

Remember Tales From The Borderlands? Quite nice, that. Way back when, Telltale took Gearbox's blockbuster and ditched the rubbish bits (most of the memes, all of the shooting) and made quite a brilliant little story. Now, we all know what happened to Telltale - so it was refreshing news when it appeared at least one Tales character would be returning in Borderlands 3, Troy Baker's…

Borderland 3 fixes frame rates, nerfs a busted boss, and respecs an overpowered grenade

If you’re one of the many people out there playing Borderlands 3, and there are a lot of you it seems, then you might also be suffering the terrible affliction of frame drops. My co-op BFF was, and it really messed up his game when aiming down his sights. There were hotfixes and settings tweaks, but a proper fix just launched, so it looks like…

Borderlands 3’s Halloween event is going to be a Bloody Harvest

Thanks to various life events, illnesses, and an awesome TV show called The Magicians, I’ve barely played Borderlands 3. I’m still in the opening area while my co-op buddy is off looting things I can only dream of. The real horror here isn’t Bloody Harvest, the upcoming Haloween update that I've been tasked to write about. It's the FOMO I’m feeling as life goes on…

Borderlands 3 hot fix fixes little, Gearbox say actual fixes are on the way

If you've been bumming about Borderlands 3 with a handful of stuttering frames to your name, I have some underwhelming news. Developers Gearbox have released a hotfix that "does not include issues that the community is immediately concerned with", along with a statement to say they're working on those. They've also posted a list of (possibly) helpful tips to help with framerates and deal with…

Borderlands 3 is out now, sounds like it could use a patch

Gearbox Software are back for more goofy looty-shooty action in Borderlands 3, released at the stroke of midnight like a spirit conjured from Hell. Once again we'll be shooting through baddies in a wacky sci-fi world where weird and wonderful guns burst out their guts. We don't have a review for you yet because 2K's UK PR people apparently only gave advance access to a…

Borderlands 3 launch trailer launches early

With Borderlands 3 arriving on Friday, 2K have tried to lay claim to this whole week by debuting the launch trailer today. It's an audacious move but one I'll allow because it digs up an early Queen banger and I'm grateful for the reminder. I am also posting this to point out that one thing which won't be early is our review. It seems only…

Fortnite’s new crossover event is advertising Borderlands 3

Epic have long sold Fortnite as an advertising platform through crossover events, but the latest stands out from prior crossovers by advertising another video game. The FortniteXMayhem event is now live, turning a corner of the map into a Borderlands 3 cartoon dustland. Advertising for another game is quite odd, with previous branded events being more for the likes of John Wick 3, Avengers: Infinity…

2K sent hired goons to a YouTuber over Borderlands 3 info leaks

Borderlands 3 publishers 2K Games have admitted they sent private investigators to a YouTuber's home for a friendly chat. 2K say it's part of a ten-month investigation into YouTuber "SupMatto" for leaking "confidential information" and "infringing [their] copyright" by sharing unannounced details about Gearbox's FPS-RPG. To be clear: SupMatto is not accused of leaking the actual game for people to play, only screenshots and snippets…

Meet Zane, a semi-retired hitman hero of Borderlands 3

I've already played a bit of Borderlands 3, back at E3 in June. It's a lot like Borderlands 2, only with bumslides and multiple planets. If the borders Borderlands has borne so far are yet to bore, then you will probably like this. You will probably also like Zane, a lovable Irish rogue with holographic decoys and deployable shields. Look, he's so lovable he's got…

Commander Lilith And The Fight For Sanctuary is free until July 8th brings the cast back together (including folks from Tales From The Borderlands) for one last fight.  They've also slashed the price on Borderlands:…

Reddit grants terminally ill fans’ wishes to play Borderlands 3 & Total War: Three Kingdoms

In case you're running low on good feels, this news packs a healthy dose: In the last week, two players got their dying wishes answered thanks to the help of Reddit. In one of those too-rare instances of the internet being a pretty ok place, users rallied and now a 26-year-old cancer patient will get his hands on Borderlands 3 ahead of its September release.…

Claptrap voice actor hits back in Borderlands pay scrap

Claptrap voice actor David Eddings is not returning to voice the irritating robot in Borderlands 3, and the reasons behind this have become a point of public contention/disagreement/agitation between Eddings and Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford on Twitter. That's how private business dealings go these days. Eddings spoke unfunny jokes for the robot at Gearbox, where his main job was in business development, but he…

Humble Store starts selling keys for Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store is no longer the only place to buy its exclusives, as the promised partnership with the Humble Store has begun. You can now buy Epic keys for Metro Exodus and Dangerous Driving from Humble, as well as pre-order Borderlands 3 (you know better than to pre-order, of course). These still run through the Epic Games Launcher on an Epic account, so…

An hour of Borderlands 3 looting, shooting and interstellar travel

Gearbox fully unveiled Borderlands 3 during a livestreamed event earlier today with an hour of largely-uncut co-op footage, showing off a brighter and more colourful sequel than I was expecting. Combat is more mobile, weapons have alt-fire modes, bosses look more interesting and players can now leave the dusty wastes of Pandora to go shooting and looting on other planets. You can see the full…

Steam’s new “off topic” protections kick in over Borderlands review bombing

Steam’s updated approach to review bombing, which prevents “off topic” reviews from counting towards a game’s overall score, has kicked in for the Borderlands series. It seems to be the first time that the (optional) filter has been applied by Steam, after users flooded the series’ reviews following the announcement that Borderlands 3 will be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store. Viewing the…

Borderlands 3 blasts new gameplay vid, confirms Epic launch date

Following last week's announcement of Borderlands 3, publishers 2K today blasted a new trailer which does seem to actually contain several seconds of the game being played in there somewhere. They also confirmed the leaked release date of September 13, as well as a details about the game. In short, it's more of the usual looter-shooter action but on new planets with new characters and…

Borderlands 3 may launch September 13th according to deleted tweet

April Fools silliness, or just a foolish slip-up? Hard to tell, but a message went out from Gearbox's official Borderlands 3 twitter account earlier that was swiftly deleted. "Mayhem is Coming September 13. Pre-order now for the Gold Weapon Skins Pack!" says the tweet, now archived on The Wayback Machine, so you can verify for yourself. Also tweeted was a new video containing the Epic…
