Gearbox Unveils Borderlands 3
Gearbox have been dropping a fair few hints that a big reveal was coming at PAX East 2019, tipping everyone off with a fairly big hint with yesterday’s “Mask of Mayhem” trailer that not only featured characters from previous games but new ones as well as some hidden messages throughout the impression 3D model trailer.
The newest trailer officially unveils Borderland 3 with sharing that there will be plenty of new weapons to loot, over one billion to be more specific, that’s a whole lot of guns. The game also features “vault hunters” which is the role players will take on when they’re out exploring the world. While many shots of environments feature the junker town in the desert, there is also a glimpse at a rain-forest and a city.
There are also plenty of beast and dinosaurs to fight, including giant flying insects that are waiting to attack. It also shows off some of the scrap heap creations that look like robots or even mech. But no trailer is complete without a not so necessary, but greatly appreciated Brick sax solo.
It was also teased that more news was coming on April 3rd, so hopefully we get a few more details about Borderlands 3 then. According to vg247, the title is “on track for a fiscal year 2020 release. If accurate, this means it will release sometime before March 31, 2020.”
