Between the 13th September launch and 2020, the...
We have talked about this Steve
Does Claptrap want to be the next David Attenborough? He's making a great case for it in this latest Borderlands 3 trailer, which attempts to focus on the wildlife we'll encounter on planet Pandora. With a camerabandit on hand, the face of the franchise tries its best to film the sort of creatures you'll come across...

Playing Borderlands via PlayStation Plus?
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection just hit PlayStation Plus, bringing with it two games from the franchise to subscribers for free. However, which game should you play first?

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.
