I’m truly, deeply sorry to be bringing more Claptrap into your life unnecessarily but Gearbox has just dropped a new trailer for Borderlands 3, so needs must and all that. 

The general gist of the trailer is that looting and shooting in Borderlands 3 is better together. A nice celebration of togetherness we can probably all get behind, particularly when a squillion types of weapon are up for grabs.

It’s probably not the choicest time to drop said trailer, mind, with Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford admitting yesterday that cross-platform multiplayer won’t make it in time for launch. “Good news,” said Pitchford, “we are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch.”

I don’t know what to say, it looks like a James Bond intro sequence after munching down one too many psilocybins. This could be a deep insight into how Randy Pitchford sees everyday events. 

Borderlands 3 is looting and shooting its way to a September 13th launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

What you mean with it won't be in time for launch? It probably is completed long for the september 2020 release.
