Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - The Power of Claptrap Detailed

50°
3w ago - Gearbox Software Content Editor Andrew Goldfarb shared details today on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - The Power of Claptrap for PlayStation 3 below.

To quote: Since we announced [Register or Login to view links], there's one question we've gotten more than any other: what is Claptrap's action skill? Up until now we haven't said much, but today we're happy to reveal that it's as weird as you might have hoped.

Claptrap's action skill is named VaultHunter.exe, and when he uses it he's granted one of several random abilities for a short time.

If you're lucky and Claptrap's programming is working properly, you might get a brief opportunity to use a version of another Vault Hunter's skill, like becoming a Gunzerker (In Claptrap's case, Funzerking!) or a Mechromancer (You'll love your new fire rate!).

If you're less lucky, you might be stuck bouncing up and down uncontrollably or launching a torrent of grenades that will obliterate friend and foe alike.

Beyond that, depending on the skill tree you choose, Claptrap may also gain the ability to cycle between subroutines that increase his efficiency with different types of guns, health regeneration,...

To quote: More Borderlands? Yes please!

2K just announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, a new entry in the awesome/ridiculous/ridiculously-awesome FPS series from Gearbox. It takes place between Borderlands 1 and 2, and explores the rise of the latter's charmingly sadistic villain: Handsome Jack. Oh, and it's on the moon.

Offensive opportunities will be plentiful, with new laser-based and "Cryo" weapons joining the already gargantuan armory present on Pandora, and you can play as one of four new characters - including Claptrap.

Handsome Jack is back with a whole new cast of playable characters and he's taking you to the moon of Pandora in the next standalone AAA game in 2K's best-selling franchise - Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. 2K announced today that the game is being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, and will be available later this fall for the PlayStation 3.

Story Teaser





Gameplay Teaser (Pre-Alpha Footage)

This video shows pre-alpha gameplay footage, which means it's nowhere near what we're aiming for visually. In fact, our technical director Hussain Sheikh was the lead visual effects programmer on Split/Second, so you can trust that he and the art team won't stop until Velocity 2X looks spectacular.





What the dock?!

When PlayStation asked if we'd like Velocity 2X announced during its Gamescom press conference, we couldn't pass up the opportunity. But the game just isn't ready for a full reveal yet, so we've only let you glimpse the platforming gameplay.

You can rest assured that the game features great mechanics that bridge the two formats perfectly; this isn't just...

142w ago - Sony Brazil Manager Fabio Santana has posted up a Q&A interview today covering Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PlayStation 3, which aims to prove the time traveling sequel even surpasses the original game!

To quote: This week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PS3 is hitting stores across Japan with critical praise, garnering perfect scores from respected gaming magazines [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links].

Granted, the original FFXIII is the best-selling PS3 title in Japan by a wide margin, but this direct sequel isn't resting on the laurels of its predecessor. For starters, it will offer a dynamic narrative, addressing one of the main complaints about FFXIII - linearity.

The new game also has a darker and more serious tone, in line with the conclusion of the previous game, putting the glitter and glam of FFX-2.

When FFXIII-2 reaches US stores on January 31st, making it the fastest localization cycle among numbered episodes of the franchise - it will also deliver an improved combat system, an area full of mini games, branched dialogue trees with NPCs, and even multiple endings based on your time-traveling journey.
