It also brings back Timothy Lawrence, one of Jack's body doubles who was a playable character added to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as DLC. That's a deep cut—even people who played the Pre-Sequel probably didn't bother with its DLC characters, but the handful who did will be pleased to see him not only return but have his arc completed. Given how Borderlands 3 short-changed the returning characters it did feature (#justice4maya), this feels like a statement of intent and it's something the other DLCs will repeat with other characters. … [Read more...] about The best parts of Borderlands 3 are hidden in its DLC
