PAX East 2014 Recap

04.17.14 - Gearbox Staff

If you weren’t able to make it to PAX East this year, we’ve got you covered! At the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel booth, Gearbox fans were able to get a first look at live gameplay and take a photo with Handsome Jack!

As usual, Borderlands cosplayers were out in full force! To see more awesome cosplayers, as well as other pics from the show, check out our PAX East album on Facebook.

This is what the inside of the moon looked like, where fans were able to see live Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gameplay.

Announcing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

04.09.14 - Gearbox Staff

The wait is finally over for a new game in the Borderlands universe! We’re launching you to Pandora’s moon for the first time in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, currently being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, and available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC later this fall. 

Set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, you’ll play as four all-new character classes fighting alongside Handsome Jack, witnessing his transformation into the ruthless tyrant you loved to hate in Borderlands 2, and assisting with the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. The signature shoot ‘n’ loot gameplay of the Borderlands series expands with the addition of low-gravity and oxygen-powered jetpack combat, the icy ‘Cryo’ elemental damage type, the deadly laser weapon class, and new vehicles to help you explore the diverse lunar landscape.

The four new playable character classes are all familiar faces from the Borderlands universe: Athena the Gladiator (The Secret Armory of General Knoxx), Wilhelm the Enforcer (the robotic badass of Borderlands 2), Nisha the Lawbringer (The Sheriff of Lynchwood in Borderlands 2), and yes, even Claptrap the Fragtrap (from just about everywhere... unfortunately).

Bonus: Those attending PAX East this weekend will be able to get a first-hand look at Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at the 2K booth! And if you're there, you won't want to miss the Inside Gearbox Software Panel on Sunday at 10:30am!

Borderlands 2 for Vita will be hitting shelves as part of a Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle on May 6th, and digitally on PlayStation Store and at retailers nationwide on May 13!

We’re making it even easier for you to send more items from LootTheWorld (out now on iOS / Android in the U.S.) to Borderlands 2!

Previously, the only way to stock up on LootTheWorld stamps was to wait around for the release of replenishment QR codes. From now on, after you use up all of your stamps, three happy new stamps will soon show up in your inventory. Continue to use your stamps wisely though, as users will only be eligible for a restock once every seven days.

Top o’ the mornin’ to you!

In case you missed them last year, the Zaford clan has once again decided to take a break from binge drinking and Hodunk killing to hand out some skins for your favorite Vault Hunters. You can use the codes below to score special green skins for your characters, plus get a sweet Chulainn SMG sent straight to your backpack.

To get the goods, enter these SHiFT codes in Borderlands 2:

  • PC / Mac Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: 5JWT3-3H5FB-SCBX5-TJ3JB-H5R6X
  • Xbox 360 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: K3C33-633S6-BKW56-56BBT-X9X9X
  • PlayStation 3 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: W3KTJ-H9H3H-FHR5B-9BCJB-36ZZ6

Each skin will be available in the Quick Change station, and your shiny new Chulainn SMG will appear in the backpack and be the same level of the first character you load after code redemption.

Redeem these while you can since they won’t be around forever. If you have any trouble, find help and assistance on


Have you been waiting to hear more details about Tales from the Borderlands, our collaboration with Telltale Games? If so, we have good news!

At SXSW in Austin, TX this weekend, members of the Telltale team joined Gearbox’s Anthony Burch and Matt Armstrong to reveal the first details about Tales, including characters, story, and much more. It was pretty awesome.

If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry; Polygon has a full recap of everything the panel covered, or you can watch it yourself on YouTube.

As you’d imagine, there are plenty of additional details still to come, so keep an eye on @Gearboxsoftware and our Facebook page for the latest updates, plus be sure to check in with our friends at Telltale and 2K.


Today, we're excited to begin sharing details about the Homeworld Remastered Collection through a new site at

Previously, we'd been referring to this effort as Homeworld HD but as work progressed it became clear that title didn't properly communicate the scope of the work. This is more than a simple re-release or up-res -- given the input we've received from fans, mod makers and series veterans, the result is full-fledged remastering of nearly all aspects alongside the archival Classic versions. 

The site also contains a survey about some possible Collector's Edition options we're considering, based on your feedback from the previous survey.

This is only the beginning -- we'll have more details and updates soon!
