Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s Claptastic Voyage trailer shows glitch guns, confetti

And ‘irreparable psychological trauma’

Recommended Videos

Gearbox showed off the trailer for the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel downloadable content to a select group of fans during its panel at PAX East, but it is now available for anybody to watch. Maybe even you? Yes, if you want.

Finishing off the four-piece Season Pass, Claptastic Voyage is the first piece of DLC for the Pre-Sequel that includes a significant story portion, where two others were the new playable characters Jack the Doppelganger and Aurelia the Baroness, and the third was an arena combat mode. In contrast, Claptastic Voyage is described as requiring “several hours” to play through, featuring new guns and enemies to fight.

The trailer above shows off a new feature: glitched weaponry. Since this mini story occurs inside Claptrap’s digital mind, some of the equipment is glitched, giving it a unique look along with some interesting combat effects that often come at a price (like the cursed equipment found in the Captain Scarlett DLC for Borderlands 2). The trailer may be a little misleading highlighting skills; it will unlock additional levels to gain more skills, but it doesn’t appear to add any new skills.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage is set to release on March 24, coinciding with the launch of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
