Borderlands

Fortnite has been updated to version 10.20 today. This also marks the start of the Fortnite X Mayhem event, a crossover event with the Borderlands franchise. Here’s a trailer for the event, and the full patch notes below:

Weapons + Items

  • Shield Bubble
    • Rare item.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.
    • Lasts for 30 seconds.
    • Creates a large bubble that blocks projectiles and explosives. However, players can still run through it.
      • Projectiles and explosives can be fired from inside the bubble but cannot go outside of it. 
      • The bubble’s emitter has 400 HP. Destroying it deactivates the bubble.

Leading up to PAX East 2019, rumors were abound that Gearbox could be putting Borderlands on Switch. That didn’t happen in the end, though Switch owners weren’t left entirely empty handed. Gearbox Publishing announced that it’s bringing Bulletstorm to Switch later this year.

It looks like there won’t be anything relating to Borderlands on Switch in the immediate future, but perhaps there’s a possibility of the series appearing sometime down the road. Randy Pitchford, president and CEO of Gearbox Software, told one fan on Twitter that he’d “love to see” the series on Nintendo’s console. It may not be any sort of confirmation, but leaves a bit of hope for the future.
