Randy Pitchford has confirmed a new Borderlands game to be in development

Gearbox CEO and president Randy Pitchford has #confirmed that a new Borderlands game will be the #developers‘ next #project.

Pitchford made the announcement during a PAX East panel, stating “it’s no secret, obviously there’s going to be another Borderlands“. However it may not be ‘Borderlands 3‘. “We don’t even know if we’re going to call it that. We could call it Borderlands 4 for all we know.”

Mikey Neumann, who voices mechanic Scooter in the main series, will be handling the writing. In fact, there is already a new character in mind, Scooper – the son of Scooter. “I did this whole Scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.” Sounding more like Borderlands indeed.

The developer hinted is that Battleborn‘s DLC will have lots of references to Borderlands 3. Which may be the only way that Gearbox manages to introduce new expansion packs for its forthcoming game.

In other Gearbox-related news, characters from its upcoming Battleborn, which is due to launch next month for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, will be made available as musicians in Rock Band 4.

Right now, five Duke Nukem games are nicely discounted on GOG.com this week for what we are hoping is a temporary #delisting from the #game #catalogue, the retailer announced today.

This sale covers Duke Nukem (1991) and Duke Nukem 2 (1993), sold together in a package; Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition (1996), the pinball spinoff Balls of Steel (1997); and then Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project (2002). Normally they cost $5.99 each but are on sale for $1.49 or 75 percent off. If you buy them all together, this is only $2.36, a discount of 90 percent. With some Linux support in the mix, the remaining titles should work nicely in Wine.

GOG.com is running the sale until 5:59 a.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 31, where all five games will disappear from the storefront. This is due to the publisher, 3D Realms, who no longer own the rights to any of the Duke Nukem games. The settlement this past August, the intellectual property lawsuit between 3D Realms, Interceptor Entertainment and Gearbox Software over Interceptor’s Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, Gearbox claimed the full rights to the Duke Nukem brand.

As for the Duke Nukem games themselves, GOG.com are in talks with the new rightsholders to bring these titles as soon as possible. And it is also noted in the blog post on GOG.com that anybody who owns any of the games in their library will not see the titles disappear.

These GOG.com versions of Duke Nukem, Duke Nukem 2 and Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition are available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project only supports Mac and Windows, and Balls of Steel is only available for Windows.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Claptastic Voyage comes to Linux, Mac and Windows PC on March 24

#Gearbox and Aspyr Media are going inside Claptrap’s head later this month when Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel #ClaptasticVoyage and #UltimateVaultHunterUpgradePack2 launch on both Linux and Mac alongside Windows PC on March 24.

The basic setup of this new DLC:

In Claptastic Voyage, Handsome Jack has found something ludicrously powerful within Claptrap’s mind. Never one to turn down a chance at more power, Handsome Jack digitizes the vault hunters and sends them inside! Their goal is simple: find the mysterious “H-Source” code and get out of Claptrap’s consciousness without going completely insane. These anti-heroes will have to deal with Claptrap’s personal insecurities, his malware, and digital representations of his crushing loneliness!

The DLC is the final entry in the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass and will introduce tons of new content, like new gear and new environments, as well as a new level cap increase, raising the total level cap to 70! Check out the Youtube video HERE.

Additionally, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 is included as bonus content in the last add-on pack in the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass, which raises the level cap to 70, giving each of your characters 10 new levels, plus 10 new skill points to earn!

If you’ve already picked up the Season Pass, Claptastic Voyage and the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 are included. For players that haven’t, these items will be sold together as one pack for $9.99. The Season Pass is still available for $29.99 and grants access to all four add-on content packs – a $39.96 value! – as they become available on Xbox Live, PSN, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. While each add-on content pack is available for sale individually, the Season Pass offers all four packs for just about the price of three!

If you don’t have the Season Pass, you’ll be able to buy the DLC for $9.99. In the meantime, you can learn a little more about the Claptastic Voyage over on Gearbox’s blog for a more details breakdown.
