If you've been waiting to check out Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands series, or only played one episode and planned to come back to it, the perfect opportunity to dive in will arrive in late April. That's when a physical disc release will see all five episodes collected into a single purchase, available for PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. There's no easier way to get introduced to the story-driven spin-off of Gearbox's Borderlands FPS series.
In a trailer released today, Telltale Games showed off Tales from the Borderlands - Finale: The Vault of the Traveler, the final installment of its game series. The game won’t be arriving for download until October 20, at which point it will drop for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Mac OS X, and PC. The next day, October 21, it will be released for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Finally, on October 22, the game will be released for Android and iOS, covering the gamut of gaming devices.
Lionsgate has announced that it will be making a “Borderlands” movie, and the news was confirmed on the official Borderlands Twitter account. The video game launched in 2009 from Take-Two Interactive and Gearbox Software, and has had sustained success across multiple platforms. The movie will be produced by Avi and Ari Arad, both of whom have some big film titles under their names: Blade, Iron Man, X-Men, and more. The announcement was made on Friday.
Inside the NVIDIA SHIELD home entertainment device is an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor. That processor allows the game Borderlands, the Pre-Sequel to work on the device - an Android TV device. This game was released to PC less than a year ago - PlayStation 3 as well. Now it'll be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and NVIDIA SHIELD. At this time it's not entirely clear whether or not the game will be able to be played on Android devices besides NVIDIA SHIELD - but it might! For now we'll assume it'll stick with NVIDIA SHIELD exclusively.
Supposing you've not yet purchased either Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the team at Gearbox Software and 2K have ushered in a box set made specifically for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There are two different editions popping up today (2 sets and two versions of each set, one for PS4, the other for Xbox One). The first is just "The Handsome Collection" - this includes both games and a whole lot of add-ons released since Borderlands 2 was first revealed. There's also a remote control Claptrap toy to be had.
Can't get enough Borderlands in your life? Machine56 has designed another piece of apparel based on the video game, and with it comes a distinct design decked out with "Maliwan" typed vertically up the back. The jacket includes a hood and is made with waterproof materials, which means it can double (or triple, as it were) as a rain jacket and a hoodie. Adding to it, the jacket is Gearbox licensed, and is available in several sizes to ensure just about anyone can fit.
Telltale Games has put its Tales from the Borderlands gameplay trailer up on YouTube, giving a long-awaited first look at the gameplay and the dangerous-as-always world in which it takes place. Tales from the Borderlands was announced back in December 2013, and is a five-part episodic game series set after Borderlands 2, as explained in the video (available after the jump). The game is set on Pandora, and follows two characters as they go gallivanting around in a "quest for greatness".
We've seen video game weapons come to life before, but few are as beautiful as the replica of the Borderlands Dahl assault rifle. The weapon clone is the brainchild of Ikkalebob, and with it comes a bit of (non-lethal) functionality. Thanks to a write-up on Instructables, the DIYers among us can make their own.
While Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is guaranteed to be coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC first, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are not out of the question. So says 2K Australia's Tony Lawrence. He also suggests that as all Borderlands 2 players are currently playing on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC - or on SHIELD through PC, etc, the team at Gearbox and 2K would like to reward them with the next title.
It’s time for the big GameSpy Technology transfer. With GameSpy multiplayer servers going offline, groups like 2K are having to either transfer services for legacy games or make the hard decision to shut down online play completely. In most cases, lucky for you legacy game players, the transfer will be made - and it’ll be quick.
Borderlands fans who've waited patiently to play the game from their handheld shan't wait much longer: Sony has announced the upcoming launch of Borderlands 2 for the PlayStation Vita, something that will be kicked off with the availability of a Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PS Vita Bundle next month.
