As expected, Gearbox unleashed the world premiere of Borderlands 3 during a PAX East live stream yesterday evening.
Borderlands 3 looks like the most sequel-y thing of all time. Gearbox promises more four-player co-op looter shooter action, over one billion procedurally generated guns, as well as a quartet of playable characters.
Yep, that’s Borderlands alright. We haven’t got a great deal to go on but as you can see, the world’s second-worst videogame character, Tiny Tina is back, as is the world’s worst. You know who I’m talking about, that little robotic gobshite. Seven years since Borderlands 2 and I could probably be convinced this was a trailer for a new Borderlands 2 expansion.
Anyway, it’s more of the Borderlands we know and love, so if you’re thirsting for more of that then it looks as if Borderlands 3 is set to deliver. We’ve now got guns on legs and mechs to hop into, as well as the promise of multiple platforms to explore.
Gearbox has yet to announce which platforms Borderlands 3 will be coming to, although PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One seem the obvious choices. There are definitely a few question marks over which storefront Borderlands 3 will hit on PC. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has been fairly vocal in his support of the Epic Games Store and his love of camgirls, so brace yourself for the worst.
In addition to Borderlands 3, we’re also being treated to Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s out on April 3rd, and PC owners of the original Borderlands will be able to download a free texture upgrade pack on the same day.
Borderlands 3 will be out this fiscal year, so by Spring 2020.
