In a new interview with PCGamesN, Borderlands 3 producer Chris Brock talks about the process behind adding jokes into the game.

“We talk about it and think about it a lot more,” says Brock. “I think in the past, we’ve just kinda done stuff. But now we say ‘okay we have this joke and we want to run it by the studio.’ And the studio’s huge now – we have 400 people in Dallas and 100 people in Quebec. So we go ‘how does this joke land with everybody?'”

“We’ve all got a personal line, some of our lines will be crossed, but we have to as a team, understand that we’re putting our best foot forward,” continues Brock. “Be edgy, be funny, don’t be cruel, don’t be insensitive, be understanding, be sympathetic. We have a very diverse studio culture, and everybody wants to represent that.”

Dualshockers’ own Ryan Meitzler got a chance to sit with Borderlands 3’s writers 3 where they talked about the game’s humor, DLC, and more. They talked about the game’s varied humor which falls in line with Brock’s comments on being more inclusive and aware. Additionally, more details have been revealed about the endgame content players will get to experience once they finish the game’s story. With all the details revealed about the game, it’s become one of my most anticipated games of the year.

Borderlands 3 launches on September 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is available for preorder on Amazon now.
