Love him or hate him, Claptrap has been the face of the Borderlands series since the very first game. As series fans know, Claptrap is always reaching for the stars and paying no mind to the disastrous consequences of actually doing so. As revealed by Gearbox in a new trailer for Borderlands 3, Claptrap’s latest play for fame and cash was a nature documentary focused on the many, many, many dangerous creatures that call the planet home. It…doesn’t go very well.
Gearbox also announced that they’ll be pushing a fair amount of content to the Borderlands YouTube channel over the course of the summer. There will be trailers of course, but also character profiles and one-offs like the video above. This is just standard marketing practice these days, but more Borderlands content isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Borderlands 3 launches on September 13 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
