A trailer for the next Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel add-on invites you to slide (slide, slippity-slide) into the twisted mind of the robot Claptrap for a Claptastic Voyage. Revealed at PAX East 2015, Claptastic Voyage arrives on March 24 for all platforms. It is included in The Handsome Collection, which launches on the same day, bringing Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One along with all their previously-released content.

Handsome Jack assembles the Vault Hunters for a special mission to collect something of great power, which apparently requires that they enter the labyrinthine depths of Claptrap’s psyche to do battle with viruses, memories, and figments of his twisted imagination. Once inside the action is set to the smooth jams of Lakeside via Coolio with “Fantastic Voyage.” Unsurprisingly, things look pretty strange in there. Robot psychedelia seems like a natural addition to the genre-spanning collection of Borderlands downloadable content, which also includes Dungeons & Dragons fantasy, zombie survival horror, and big game hunting.

As a bonus addition to this final release in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel‘s season pass, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 is included. This raises the level cap on all characters up to 70, adding 10 new levels and 10 new skill points to earn. Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 will be available for $10 alone or as part of the $30 season pass, which includes four DLC add-ons.
