Better upgrade before Borderlands 3 comes out...

From the "best gaming news I've seen in a long time" file:

A new Borderlands is in the works.


The Pre-Sequel was ok. I don't know if my "not enjoying it as much as 1 and 2" was a function of the game itself, or the novelty having worn off some. In any event, that's the more consistent-than-not sentiment on it and I fully anticipate that to be addressed and then some when this thing sees the light of day.

I'm looking forward to next month's release of Battleborn to tide me over for a bit.

Where did you put the preorder in at? Retail, or just through Xbox Live?

I need to check Amazon in a bit, because for a while they were doing a thing where Prime members would routinely get 20% off all game preorders. It's been so long since I got something on launch day, that I don't know if they still do this.

I can't even find it on Amazon. Either I'm totally blind and/or don't know how to search for it... OR you're so horny for it that you had some sort of cartoonish, starry-eyed hallucination that made you see something that wasn't there.

It doesn't have to be an "OR". It could be an "AND"

I initiated the order from the Borderlands site

When I selected Amazon, it redirected me there.



I got Super Deluxe edition.

I know this thread is basically me talking to myself and punker, but hey...works for me.


Gearbox just did something pretty cool as a lead-in to September's release of Borderlands 3 -
they released new and free DLC content for anyone who owns Borderlands 2 or the Handsome Jack Collection (which includes BL2) in it as a bridge between BL2 and BL3.

It wraps up some stories from 2 and set up 3.


Did I mention it is free?

Also because many people last played BL2 on prior console versions and this is only released on latest, it comes with an option to instantly 'up-level' a new character to Level 30 so that you're playing at or about where you would have been near the end of first playthrough of BL2. That way you don't have to restart from scratch and build up a character - you can go into the DLC as a fully functioning character.


Also, free.

Free Borderlands content? Fuck yeah!

I didn't know about this other than the rumor I read the other day that there would be some kind of bridge DLC linking 2&3. I was curious how it would work, since I (like you and like most, I'm sure) played it on the 360 or PS3. But the fact that it's free and you can auto level like that is fantastic.

The character boost puts you at level 30, and every story mode mission completed up until killing Jack. The gear.... sucks. Maybe my Borderlands skills are rusty, but the DLC is kind of hard. So, if you boost a character, do the Jack mission, get some lootz from the Destroyer, then do the DLC.

ETA: by "story mode mission," I mean "main story mission." All the sidequests are [Undiscovered] in the mission log.

Literally sat on my ass all day yesterday with the kiddo in town and knocked the full DLC out in about 8 hours via split-screen coop. I didn't have Handsome Jack collection on XB1 but it was on sale for all of $9 as part of MSFT's E3 sale so super low cost of entry to play between that and free DLC.

We leveled up to 30 and went straight into the DLC, skipping finishing off the the first playthrough. Our guns were plenty fine to start - it took a while before any loot we got was worth anything but our guns were good.

Overall a lot of fun and good to get back into the BL rhythm before September.

If you're even a casual fan, I'd recommend doing this. DLC is free through early July and not sure how long MSFT is running their sale.

God bless Gearbox. BL3 is already available for download and install if you purchased digitally. Save you the hassle of waiting for and dealing with that so you can be good to go immediately upon launch = their servers going online.

And they go online tomorrow, a day early. I think 4pm pacific for PC and 9pm pacific for consoles.

Fuck all tomorrow night. All of it.

Yeah I have it downloading as we speak. It will indeed be ready to go for us tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m.

With the servers in Gears 5 taking a fat shit since launch, it'll be fine to chill on that one while it gets worked out, and start fucking things up on Pandora.

I torn between playing as the Siren or the Beastmaster. I'd played as the Siren the previous two games and really liked the gameplay style, but went with the Beastmaster this time, just for something different. Plus after reading about the characters a bit, he sounded pretty cool.

I saw you chose him as well. Who did you pick as the companion? I went with the skag... the whole "spits acid on the enemies while clawing the shit out of them" is working out well so far.

I did Spiderant. I've been Berzerker / Gunzerker in past playthroughs, and have greatly benefited from the healing ability that game with his skill tree. Spiderant had that.

I think I regret not picking the skag. My son did same as you and is loving it. Spiderant is ok.
