Borderlands 3’s character Balex is being voiced by Ice T

Ice T has had a varied career going from the world of rap music to actor. He’s also a big fan of gaming and quite often you can check his Twitter to find out what games he is hyped about. He’s also had some voicework in gaming including appearing in GTA: San Andreas, Scarface: The World is Yours, and Gears of War 3. Now the musician/actor has confirmed his next video game role, and it is of the sentient teddy bear Balex in Borderlands 3.


Hey, why not? Borderlands is already a mad enough franchise for this to make sense. In addition to that news a new trailer was released for Borderlands 3 titled ‘The Borderlands are Yours’ and it shows a lot of snippets of gameplay as well as some of the guns you may find. There’s also a brief look at the vehicles as well as the enemies that players will be facing off against. I’m a fan of the gun that just shoots more guns, or the one that shoots the rolling blades.

Borderlands 3 will see a lot of changes being implemented over the previous titles to make things much more accessible and user friendly when it comes to loot finding. There’s the ping system, similar to the one found in Apex Legends, in which players can highlight any loot or locations that may be of interest to their companions. Additional accessibility options will be to toggle the head bob motion, different colour blind visual options, and controls can be binded how players please including with use for the Xbox One Adaptive controller.

Dom had some hands-on time with Borderlands 3 and wrote:

“Borderlands 3 is shaping up to be everything that fans could hope for, with Gearbox making a commitment to “story, style and design”. It’s undeniably a Borderlands game, but while there have been plenty of pretenders to the looter shooter crown, Borderlands 3 is going to shoot them straight in the face while the world explodes around them. We wouldn’t have it any other way.”
