Video: Claptrap is your new favourite vault hunter in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

Hi Eurogamers, welcome to your weekly video airdrop from Outside Xbox, where this week's theme is misunderstood heroes - such as Claptrap of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

The new Borderlands game has four new vault hunters, but it's Claptrap, the lovably rubbish robot who spent the previous Borderlands games annoying everyone, who makes the most interesting new recruit. Honestly, he's not as useless as you think. Take a look.

Equally misunderstood are giant monsters. Monsters wrecking up the place is business as usual for video games, but it's time someone told the monster's side of the story. That's what Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock does in Evolve, in which you play a monster against a team of human-controlled monster hunters out to kill you for no reason other than that you're different. Also, you are trying to kill them. Discover the five most important lessons we learned while playing as the monster in new Evolve gameplay.

Finally this week, Show of the Week eyes up Quantum Break, the upcoming new adventure from Max Payne and Alan Wake developer Remedy that will intermittently let you play as the bad guy.

Each act of Quantum Break will finish with a sequence in which you play as main antagonist Paul Serene. The decisions you make in these 'junction in time' sequences are then reflected in the next episode of the game's companion TV show (included on the disc), which then feeds back into the next act of the game. Sounds ambitious. Let's take a closer look.
