Get a closer look at the four playable characters in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

I could've been a pirate ship but I was a disco ball instead in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
by Brett Makedonski

As I sat down for my appointment with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had to make my toughest decision at PAX Prime. Running through Claptrap's capstone abilities, I was faced with the following dilemma: Do I want to become a pirate ship or a disco ball?

I wasn't exactly jarred by the wacky prospect. I mean, this is Borderlands we're talking about, and even more specifically, this is Claptrap. But, you seriously expect me to just select between those two like it ain't no thang?

I went disco ball. I can't say I regret my decision.

See how mixing up Hunters in Evolve changes things up

You want more Evolve? Well here you go. The latest trailer from gamescom shows off a mix up of the past Hunters that have been revealed, plus the squid face monster that the opposing players will take control of. All of this is shown on the new map Distillery.  This video is also eSports like whoa.

The Making of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Episode 2 focuses on the moon

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set on Pandora's moon Elpis, and this episode of the "making of" series focuses on that fact. For starters, players can see that the moon experienced some serious cosmetic changes between Borde...

Here's over 20 minutes of Evolve's Kraken

When I think about the multiplayer games that I really enjoy, one immediately comes to mind: Turtle Rock Studios' Left 4 Dead. In a sea of samey competitive multiplayer titles, something about that particular game really wor...

I got to spend a little time with Nisha the Lawbringer from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and yippee ki-yay is she a fun character. Nisha brings Old West sensibilities to this moon shooter, and a few new tricks as well. And a bullwhip.

It looks like 2K has some more BioShock up its sleeve

Many made the reasonable prediction that with the closing of Irrational Games earlier this year, we'd probably seen the last of the BioShock franchise, at least for a bit. That line of thought may prove to have been a bi...

Back with more impressions from playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had some first-hand playtime with the cybernetic tough guy, Wilhelm the Enforcer, which I would like to relate to you with my mouth. Wilhelm may not be all he's cracked up to be, yet. But he's got a couple of interesting surprises.

Free Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skins coming to Borderlands 2 on Tuesday photo
Free Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skins coming to Borderlands 2 on Tuesday
by Darren Nakamura

Over the weekend at GaymerX, Gearbox announced that it would be releasing free Borderlands 2 customization options tomorrow. The idea behind them came from the prolific Borderlands cosplay community, so the Borderlands 2 characters would be dressed as various Pre-Sequel characters. Thanks to Gearbox forum user Norrin Radd, we have the above off-screen image of the Vault Hunters sporting the new skins and heads.

It looks like Gaige is dressed as Moxxi, Salvador as Wilhelm, Axton as Athena, Zer0 as Claptrap, and Maya as Nisha. Even though I have been following Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel fairly closely, I cannot seem to place Krieg's costume. Any ideas out there?

The new customization options should show up as a free title update, but rather than being simply granted to players, they will be included as rare loot drops. It looks like it is about time to start grinding with my Siren again. That cowboy hat is too good to pass up.

Gearbox explains why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't Borderlands 3

Developer diaries generally tend to be fairly niche videos that cover the specifics of creating a game. However, this one -- the first in a series -- takes a broad strokes approach and ends up being more interesting than mos...
