The final downloadable content pack for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is an add-on to the story called Claptastic Voyage. Fans of 1960s sci-fi films probably recognize the riff on the title Fantastic Voyage and hey! Guess what?! Same deal.

Handsome Jack’s discovered something uniquely powerful buried deep within Claptrap’s oddball mind. Never one to shy away from REAL ULTIMATE POWER, the villain-to-be miniaturizes his lackeys and zaps them into Clap’s robo-brain.

Their quest for the mysterious “H-source” code is complicated by all manner of dangers, rooted in Claptrap’s uniquely disturbing quirks and self-described crushing loneliness. There’s also a customizable arena that gives players an opportunity to tweak the gravity settings, enemy difficulty, and more to their liking as well as a “glitched weapon system.”

The pack also includes The Pre-Sequel‘s latest level cap bump, bringing the new max level up to 70 (from the previous 60). That means 10 more skill points to assign however you please, pushing your characters even further into overpowered territory.

The pack costs $10 on its own, but it’s also part of a season pass that includes all Pre-Sequel DLC released to date, for $30. Claptastic Voyage and all the rest of the Pre-Sequel add-ons will also be included in the Handsome Jack Collection, which brings Borderlands 2Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and all DLC to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Claptastic Voyage arrives on March 24, 2015, the same day The Handsome Jack Collection is set to be released.

Borderlands 3 feels like more of the same, but that’s a good thing
leaked borderlands 2 dlc to bridge 3

There's a certain moment when playing a Borderlands game where it clicks, when you finally see why so many hold the series in such high regard. What first seems like a mindless shooter soon becomes an exhilarating stream of enemies along with rewarding and randomized loot. So far, Borderlands 3 is proving to be the same satisfying loot shooter as its predecessor, but small changes and neat additions make for a smoother experience while keeping the charm the series has always been known for.

After not having played a Borderlands game in some time, I had that "click" moment when I played a hands-on demo of Borderlands 3 at E3 2019. It was shortly after I got the hang of the new slide mechanic and landed two snazzy headshots with my shotgun. It felt smoother than ever, and the character models and environments were sharper, but nothing stood out as game changing. You get your waypoint, you mow down enemies as you follow the path, and you defeat the boss at the end. It's your standard Borderlands fare. It's still just as fun, but nothing revolutionary.
It's more Borderlands and that's okay
