‘Borderlands 3’ is set to have over a billion guns

Gearbox recently announced Borderlands 3 to the world with an impactful trailer full of personality and the Borderlands style that gamers were enamoured by last-generation. Borderland fans can’t contain the excitement. That said, while Gearbox dished a trailer boasts of a fair amount of the game, it didn’t really reveal any additional critical details. There’s no word on platforms, though you’d assume the game is coming to this-gen systems, and potentially next-gen systems as well. There’s information of a release date.

According to Gearbox, what’s particularly appealing, Borderlands 3 will have over 100 million guns. Wait, no, the trailer says the game will have over one billion guns.  This won’t be one billion unique guns, but one billion permutations. As you will know, Borderlands spells loot and gun customization, and apparently, there will be a lot of it this time around.

In Borderlands 2 there were about 17 million different guns you could pack. If this is the case, then other looter-shooters are about to look tame in comparison.

Gearbox has promised more information next month.  Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no word of a release date or specific platforms, but Gearbox did tease more information will come on 3 April 2018.

Its confirmed, ‘The Joker’ will be an Origin Story

Gotham’s most grotesque archvillain is The Joker is getting his own individual movie in the DC universe. Not taking a cue from the version we’ve already seen from Suicide Squad, the new movie will introduce a fresh interpretation of the character played by Joaquin Phoenix.


Since comedian and actor, Marc Maron also has come on board, and he recently revealed new details about what fans can expect. The actor shared that The Joker is going to be an origin story for the Clown Prince of Crime.

Joaquin Phoenix

 “I think it’s a very interesting approach to this world,” Maron explained to NME. “I’ve been somewhat judgemental when it comes to comic book movies and I’ve got a little pushback in the press for being a hypocrite. Whatever I think, if you get a call and someone says, ‘Hey do you wanna do a scene with Robert De Niro and Joaquin Phoenix?’ your principals fall to the wayside.”

He further explained that director Todd Phillips is using the opportunity to dig deep into the psyche of the character, much like the original graphic novels Joker and The Killing Joke.

“If it’s relative to what I think of Marvel movies then it’s like, ‘Yeah, of course, I’m gonna do that’. Oddly, it’s not that kind of movie. The approach that Todd Phillips has taken is more of an origin story and a character study of a mentally ill person that becomes The Joker,” Maron said. “It’s more of an intimate and gritty movie with a very specific scope. It’s going to be really interesting to see how it comes out.”

The Joker premieres in theatres on 4 October 2019.
