Borderlands 3’s voice actors are now known, thanks to Gearbox giving us a look at plenty of new gameplay from the upcoming threequel. We’ve managed to tune our ears to the fine timbre of each voice actor in the Borderlands 3 gameplay footage and can tell you that there are plenty of returning cast! However the Borderlands 3 voice cast list also has some notable alterations and sorely missing names from Borderlands 2 and the pre-sequel. Chief among them are Claptrap and Rhys, which resulted in some awkward tweet interactions with Gearbox chief Randy Pitchford.
Controversies aside, read on to find out which Borderlands 3 voice actors are playing your faves as we go down the BL3 voice cast.
