Bordering on suspicious
All the way back in May last year, a Korean ratings board listing for 'Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition' appeared. There was speculation over what the supposed title could be -- a simple remaster of the first Borderlands? Or maybe some kind of collection? -- but more information never followed. Until now, that is...
For the Mayas
It’s been a quietly exceptional year for PlayStation VR, but there’s still one big game left in its arsenal: Borderlands 2 VR. Okay, so the PlayStation 3 version of the shooter-looter launched eons ago, but it has been upgraded for virtual reality and should present a totally new experience from the all-new perspective. And to...
Borderlands 2 is coming to PlayStation VR later this year, and in many ways it feels like a decent fit for Sony’s virtual reality headset. Gearbox has clearly put work into the port as well, revealing that you’ll be able to drive from a first-person perspective and dual-wield weapons using two PlayStation Move wands. But, as is...
Handsome Jack never looked so handsome
You wanted more full-length games to make the leap to PlayStation VR, and Borderlands 2 is next in line. Due out on 14th December, the aptly named Borderlands 2 VR will bring the cel-shaded world of Pandora to Sony’s headset – and a bunch of new features to boot. This is the full game and not a spin-off...
Ain't no rest for the wicked
The Korean Ratings Board has, once again, rated a PS4 game that has yet to be announced. This time, it's Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, presumably a remaster of the original game in Gearbox's popular shooter series. We already have Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on PS4, which includes Borderlands 2 and
Lock and load
Wow, who saw this one coming? At a recent PAX West panel, Gearbox CEO and industry gobsh*te Randy Pitchford told the audience that 90 per cent of the studio is currently "working on the thing I think most of you guys want us to be working on". Obviously, that's a Borderlands 3 tease -- unless the developer is so misguided that it...
One of Telltale's best developed with skeleton crew
Some top Telltale staffers have cast some light on Tales from the Borderlands – and it’s raised some questions about the culture at the company. Many of you may remember that it took ages for episodes in the critically acclaimed series to deploy, and that’s because after less-than-stellar...
But there's probably a new Batman on the way
Good ol’ games media, you’ve only gone and done it again. We resisted the urge to write a report on the recent The Wolf Among Us rumours, where the voice actor who played Bigby Wolf in the popular comic book adaptation retweeted a tease regarding forthcoming Telltale announcements. To be honest, while...
Gearbox clearly should have prioritised Borderlands 3 ahead of Battleborn, but what's done is done, and the good news is that the studio is finally forging ahead with the loot shooter sequel. Boss Randy Pitchford took to the stage during an Unreal Engine panel at GDC 2017 today to reveal a little more about the title – much to the...
The only way, maybe?
Gearbox has re-iterated that it will begin developing Borderlands 3 in earnest once it's wrapped up production of forthcoming MOBA mash-up Battleborn and its subsequent DLC. The developer reassured fans during a panel at PAX East overnight, announcing that Scott Kester – the art director on Battleborn – will fulfil the same...
BioShock? Borderlands? Take Two's going big
Take Two, the company in charge of 2K Games and Rockstar, has hinted that it will appear at E3 2016 in a "big way". Strauss Zelnick, the organisation's head honcho, teased the tidbit in the latest issue of MCV, stopping short of revealing which titles it will have on display. It currently has three games...
We're going to be sick
Few things are less funny than Borderlands, but we'd probably put having our eyeballs accidentally sucked out by a vacuum cleaner in the spot above. Still, that's not stopped Telltale Games from taking the title's non-existent fiction and turning it into the decent Tales from the Borderlands, so we suppose that the brand's...
Skin pizza party
Since their respective debuts, Telltale appears to have prioritised Game of Thrones over Tales from the Borderlands. Indeed, the latter's release "schedule" could, at best, be described as inconsistent. The first episode released in November of last year, and now, ten months later, we've just made it to the fourth instalment. This...
Just under 10GB
Ah, broadband – it's not like any of us have usage caps or anything. Gearbox Software doesn't seem to care, as it's dropped a jumbo patch for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection weighing in at a reported 9.2GB. The update – which is also available specifically for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on the PlayStation 3 – promises...
It's becoming a familiar tale of late: a much loved game from the previous generation shows up on your new and shiny gaming apparatus, dressed up, and strutting its stuff in an attempt to lure you away from newer releases. The latest title to enter this 'mutton dressed as lamb' category is Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, a...
Not so handsome
We're well and truly into the age of ridiculously big downloadable game updates, but Borderlands: The Handsome Collection actually has a decent excuse. Weighing in at a rather large 8.31GB, you'll need the title's day one patch before you dive into some shooting and looting madness. Thankfully, it's not just a hefty chunk of data...
They should make a movie: Not Another PlayStation 4 Remaster. Seriously, though, while Borderlands: The Handsome Collection may not include the first game in the series, it's looking like a pretty comprehensive package. Including both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the real thing that should sell this set is the fact that...
Cool story, bro
It's taken an age for Telltale Games to release the second instalment in its Tales from the Borderlands series. The first episode deployed all the way back in December, and in the time since, it's released not one but two episodes in its other ongoing story, Game of Thrones. The question is: has the continuation of Rhys and Fiona's...
In what we've no doubt will prove a hilarious piece of downloadable content, Gearbox has announced that an all-new campaign – Claptastic Voyage – will be strutting its stuff to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel later this month. Due out from 24th March, the add-on will be available day and date with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection...
Sound the Siren
The forthcoming PlayStation 4 port Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will not include the original Borderlands, so franchise fans may be relieved to learn that multiplayer has been patched back in to the ageing PlayStation 3 release. The title was rendered offline-only following GameSpy's closure last year, but Gearbox has teamed...
Can we have a skag instead?
This week marks the launch of the new Borderlands: The Pre Sequel DLC, Lady Hammerlock the Baroness, allowing you to play as this icy lady similar to the previously released Handsome Jack. In order to accommodate the latest arrival, an update is required which has been found to have a catch. After downloading, when...
Gearbox recruiting for sequel
Gearbox gaffer Randy Pitchford told us to keep an eye on today's PAX South 2015 panel for more information on the next Borderlands, but instead of announcing the inevitable follow-up, he merely confirmed that the company's staffing up for the sequel. This is the kind of bad joke that we'd expect to find in the actual...
Gearbox may be busy working on bizarre MOBA-style shooter Battleborn, but it hasn't forgotten that Borderlands is its bread and butter. And, speaking as part of a question and answer session at PAX South 2015 overnight, gaffer Randy Pitchford has hinted that we won't have to wait long to get the skinny on the next entry in the series...
Ever since Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was announced, people have been crying out for a PlayStation 4 release, and so it's no surprise that the game, along with the critically acclaimed Borderlands 2, is gunning for Sony's newest console. Dubbed The Handsome Collection, the two titles will, for the first time, feature four player...
Ready for round two?
"We're sick of new titles on the PlayStation 4!" the passionate gaming masses shout as they march through the village square. "We want more last-gen re-releases!" Luckily for this ill-conceived cliché, the Australian ratings board may have just
We will remember that
Up until this weekend, it was cheaper to purchase both Game of Thrones and Tales of the Borderlands on the Xbox One than the PlayStation 4 in Europe. Despite the titles being identical, the former’s Season Pass cost £24.99 on Sony’s system, while the latter retailed for £18.99. The platform holder has now slashed the...
A hyper Hyperion hoot
Tales from the Borderlands is the latest in a new line of Telltale Games titles, which will be followed by Game of Thrones in December. Unlike some of its more recent comic book spin-offs, this is the result of a direct collaboration with Gearbox, and takes place shortly after the events of Borderlands 2. Considering that the...
Apparently not Claptrap
Seeing as Borderlands is about as funny as being slapped around the face with a wet fish, we were always sceptical of Tales from the Borderlands. The latest episodic series from Telltale Games strips out the first-person shooting from Gearbox’s titles – and focuses instead upon the people of Pandora. Sounds like a recipe...
It’s no secret that this scribe finds Borderlands’ sense of humour unbearable at times, but this Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel secret did spread a smile across your humble host’s miserable mug. Uncovered by YouTube user Prestige’r MadLuigi , the Easter egg essentially sees you collecting letter tokens in order to call one of the...
While we’re aware that there are millions of people who haven’t upgraded to the PlayStation 4 yet, sales have shifted in favour of Sony’s next-gen super machine. Recent cross-platform titles such as Destiny and Watch Dogs all sold best on the Japanese giant’s latest box, putting Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in a strange...
Shut your Claptrap
Borderlands 2 is an enjoyable enough game, but let’s not try and pretend that its obnoxious brand of humour is anywhere close to being comical. Annoying characters and even more irritating voice acting aside, though, the title has now shipped over 10 million copies, which means that a significant portion of people have reached...
Fly me to the moon
Gearbox Software’s gaffer Randy Pitchford must have got a whiff of current PlayStation 3 sales, because all of a sudden the company doesn’t seem to be quite so committed to last-gen consoles. When spin-off Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was announced earlier in the year, the outspoken executive insinuated that the moon-based...
The Borderlands 2 port on PlayStation Vita has been about as divisive as our internal E3 game of the show votes. Some have complimented the re-release's faithful recreation of the source material, while others have condemned its questionable controls. If you find yourself in the latter camp, you'll be glad to hear that a recent
Next-gen not in on the joke
Assuming that you’re a fan of Borderlands’ particular brand of goofy humour, then you’ll no doubt get a kick out of this Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel pre-E3 trailer. In addition to showing off some of the spin-off’s low-gravity gameplay, it also includes a dance breakdown, and confirmation of the PlayStation 3...
That big ol' moon
In this gameplay trailer narrated by Gearbox Software’s James Lopez and 2K Australia’s Joel Eschler, you'll get to see quite a bit of what the upcoming last-gen shooter Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has to offer. Spanning 15 minutes, there's plenty here to gawk at and time think to yourself, "Wow, this looks a lot like...
Loot scootin' baby
If you've been holding your breath in anticipation of the release of Borderlands 2 on the PlayStation Vita, we're glad to inform you that the popular shooter has now been given a firm release date. That's right, you can now safely start scrounging together some loot to purchase the title on 28th May in Europe. But first, you...
What a load of Claptrap
With the first-person frolics of Gearbox Software’s uber-popular shoot-‘n’-loot escapade Borderlands 2 set to expand to the PlayStation Vita this month, fresh information about the pocketable port is beginning to fire its way online. However, not all of this intel is good, as one such previously unknown tidbit that’s...
Fly me to the moon
This week’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel rumour was not an elaborate hoax, as the release has been officially confirmed by 2K Games today. The title – which takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2 – is being developed by 2K Australia and series creator Gearbox
You don't know Handsome Jack
It’s been an awfully long time coming, but acclaimed first-person shooter Borderlands 2 will finally fire onto the PlayStation Vita from 6th May in North America. Those that pick up the title as part of the platform holder’s latest hardware bundle will unlock access to the raucous affair a week early, while...
Set phasers to fun
One of the big surprises from this year’s PAX East may have been unveiled early, as a new Borderlands title could be about to loot your wallet later this year. Dubbed a “pre-sequel”, the unannounced adventure is rumoured to take place between the first and second entries in Gearbox’s first-person franchise, and is...
While Sony has been tearing up the Game Developers Conference with its long awaited virtual reality headset, Sony has sneakily allowed the press to get its hands on the PlayStation Vita re-release of popular loot-'em-up Borderlands 2. Luckily, Spanish site Atomix has shared its findings, posting this short clip which gives us our...
Dirty rotten scoundrels
Telltale Games and Gearbox teased the industry with the announcement of its first collaborative project last year, Tales from the Borderlands. While the trailer filled us with overwhelming excitement, it also left us with plenty of unanswered questions. However, during a panel at SXSW, the two studios have finally spilled...
One of the defining characteristics of the Borderlands franchise, aside from its salacious susceptibility for stupendous sums of loot, is its gorgeous and distinct art style. In a sea of brown realistic shooters, it's incredibly refreshing to see a series that so wholeheartedly embraces a more cartoony style. It is therefore imperative...
Locked and loaded
We often pray for rumoured release dates to come true – and thankfully this time the retailers may be on the mark. Borderlands 2 publisher 2K Games has shared on Twitter that the PlayStation Vita version of its loot-'n'-shoot smash will be arriving on 18th March. The message has since been deleted, suggesting that someon
Pandora in your pocket
With the exceptional Tearaway already available, the roster of upcoming PlayStation Vita retail releases is looking a little dry. Fortunately, there could be a big game set to take charge of your device's cartridge slot sooner than you think, as North American retailer Newegg reckons that Borderlands 2 is set to fire its way...
Michael John Mamaril was a huge Borderlands fan
Tragically he died of cancer last month at the unfairly premature age of 22. This prompted Michael's friend Carlo — also a big Borderlands fan — to contact Gearbox Software and ask if they could get the game's lovable robot, Claptrap, to read some kind of eulogy. Touchingly Gearbox did, and has also promised to include Mamaril in Borderlands 2 as..

Are you still playing Borderlands? Thought you might be
That game is big. In fact, if we didn't have a back-log of about 5,264,631 games to review [slight exaggeration - Ed], we'd still be playing it now. And if we were still playing it now, we'd be hotly anticipating the game's level cap raising patch. Speaking of which, Gearbox claim that the patch is finished on the development side. It's just..
2K has revealed that they'll be bundling "demo keys" of Duke Nukem Forever with all purchases of the upcoming Borderlands Game Of The Year Edition
Apparently the key will also provide users with a "wealth of goodies". As if Duke wasn't enough. How many people are going to end up with a second copy of Borderlands just so they can say they've played Duke Nukem, then? To be fair, the..
It was nice of Gearbox to mention that there'd be even more Borderlands DLC
Assuming the third pack was the last, we eliminated Borderlands from our growing PlayStation 3 software tower a while ago. Wrong move, PushSquare. "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution" is due in September and will set you back roughly $10. The DLC will include 20 new...
It's been out for roughly six months now, but we're still talking about Borderlands
Why? Well mainly because it's awesome, but partly because 2K keep committing to new content for the game. Take-Two's committed to even more content for the game with CEO Ben Feder stating, "Well continue to support the title with more digital content."...
Oh hell yes
We're ready for more Borderlands - and that's exactly what we're going to get this week. Gearbox has announced that the latest pack, The Secret Armory Of General Knoxx, will launch on PSN this coming Thursday. That's like, 2 days away guys! It'll cost $8.99 on the American store, so expect something like £7.99 here in the UK. We'll have...
Seemingly obsessed with the letter 'X', Gearbox has announced that the latest Borderlands DLC will be entitled "The Secret Armory Of General Knoxx"
According to the press release it'll include "never-before-seen enemies in a huge new environment complete with tons of brand new missions". Great start Gearbox. We already know the DLC will up the level cap - but Gearbox are yet to detail..
After the disappointment of the latest DLC, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, our Borderlands addiction is kinda teetering; embedded deep inside but refusing to emerge until we can hit a new level cap
Seems Gearbox know that, as they've announced a level cap increase is due with the game's next DLC pack, a pack they describe as "the biggest DLC we have made". We can't wait.
Never in all my years of opinionating have I been more sure of one thing: co-op is the future of online multiplayer
There'll always be a place in video games for the wrought solo escapades of a tight single-player experience, as will there always be the space for competitive multiplayer — but co-op is the future. Playing Borderlands over the...
If you want to listen to a sexy voice talk about husbands over a root-octave synth bassline then, hey, this Borderlands DLC should have you hooked
Borderlands is the game that just continues to keep pleasing. It's due to hit the PSN in January.
With huge sales figures in the US, it's unsurprising to hear publisher Take-Two speak highly of Gearbox's new IP Borderlands
The publisher described the game as "showing every sign of becoming an important, long-term franchise." Interestingly, Gearbox just trademarked the name "Borderworlds".
Michael Pachter said Borderlands was being "sent out to die
" He was wrong. Gearbox's new IP sold at an alarming rate, faring incredibly on the XBOX 360, and still rather well as part of a congested PS3 line-up. In fact, Gearbox are claiming Borderlands to be the fastest selling new IP of the year, an accolade we won't argue with. Basing it on just NPD data, only Prototype comes close, but..
If you've had enough of Borderland's on-disc content and are itching for more, you'll be pleased to know that Gearbox are planning some Zombie based DLC for the loot-based shooter later this month
The content is due to hit the PSN this November 24th and promises "ferocious brain-eating zombies, carnivorous Were-Skags and more." The content...
Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 has edged out all competition to take the top spot on the UK all-format charts
The Playstation 3 SKU of the game beat out all of its rivals to take the top spot on the UK charts, outselling the XBOX 360 version rather strongly. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves remained in the top ten at number six, with Borderlands debuting at number seven. Slight disappointment for Eye Pet, as..
Congrats to the guys over at Gearbox
Bloody awesome show folks! Yesterday the Internet was ablaze with scorned Playstation 3 owners who were having problems accessing Borderland's friends list correctly. A bumper forum thread ensued, with Gearbox's Scott Velasquez noting that his company were "working on a fix". That fix is now out there...

Borderlands may be the hottest thing on the gaming press' lips but it's unlikely to enjoy a demo pre-release
Speaking to Joystiq, a 2K rep clarified, "Everyone is really, really focusing on getting the game done for release ... that's not to say there will never be a demo, just not before launch." Despite Borderlands being hyped to...
Borderlands may be this year's biggest sleeper hit
It's a generating a great following from much of the press thanks to its innovative gameplay and unique graphical style. Gearbox bigwig Randy Pitchford says the game will "blow your mind". The boxart has already succeeded in that. Literally. We're looking forward to giving the forward-thinking Borderlands a try for ourselves. Expect a..
Gearbox's uniquely styled RPG shooter, Borderlands, is set to release in the US on October 20th
Europe can expect the game on the 23rd. The game got rave reviews following an excellent showing at this year's E3. It won't be long before we all get to see what the fuss was about.
The genre shrugging "role-playing shooter with strong co-op and split-screen gameplay" Borderlands will release some time this October confirmed Gearbox today
The game will see a launch simultaneously on Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and PC. With a totally new graphical style, E3 feedback on Borderlands has been very positive.
