After countless teasers and subtle misdirections over the years, the Gearbox has finally lifted the veil over Borderlands 3. The game was revealed on the developer's PAX East panel, which was met by as much fanfare as it was technical difficulties. Nevertheless, the game's great debut trailer constituted tension and lots of questions. If you haven't seen it already, check it in the player above.
To catch you on all things Borderlands 3 we have gathered all the latest news, features, impressions, trailers and details we know about the game. Be sure to check back often as we update this article with even more new information on this highly anticipated loot shooter.
What is Borderlands 3?
Borderlands 3 is the highly anticipated third game in the popular Borderland franchise, a series whose mechanics and conventions presented many of today's most well-known loot-based shooters, such as Destiny and Division. Like previous games, you seem to want to take on the role of one of four treasure troops known as Vault Hunters. You will explore the world and complete missions that feed into your general skill progression and acquisition of new weapons and gears. The series is mostly known for its number of available weapons; Borderlands 3 claims that there are over one billion guns to collect, some of which are capable of walking and acting autonomously by the user.
Not much about Borderlands 3's overall story; Although glimpses of several recurring characters and a set of new bad guys called Calypso twins seem to be creating a much greater conflict than previous games – as evidenced by the many new planets, it seems that you are visiting this time.
There is still no confirmed release date for Borderlands 3. More details have been announced about the game on April 3, but it is unclear whether we will hear a release date during that time. However, we have reason to believe that the game will be out in the next year. Coinciding with the other franchise news that has to be shared, Gearbox has called the 2019 Year of Borderlands, which may indicate that Borderlands 3 will be out this year. In addition, Take Two has repeatedly referred to a highly anticipated successor to a 2K franchise under previous earnings reports. This game was considered to be Borderlands 3, which – if true – means that it is scheduled for release between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020.
Playable character classes
The first trailer has a pair well-known faces from the series' past, but much of the focus goes to a group of four new characters on the screen above, which is probably the Vault Hunters you get to control. At present, it is unclear which specific classes they correspond to or even what their names are.
Borderlands games tend to have a mix of traditional shooter-RPG class archetypes such as Berserker, Hunter and Soldier. However, the series is also known for utilizing several unexpected classes that mash up a number of interesting skills and abilities. This tradition seems to continue with one of the female Vault Hunters, a Siren, showing a skill in which she calls several ethereal arms, possibly referring to her being a more obvious centered character.
We have brief glimpses of the remaining three that give some details of what they are. Robot Fella seems to have a pet Skag that follows him around, the grizzled old guy seems to be able to create doppelgangers by himself, and the helmet girl has a D.Va-like robot that she and other Vault Hunters can jump in.
Confirmed recurring characters
As mentioned, many of the series' characters return in Borderlands 3, which includes people from Borderlands 1, Borderlands 2 and spin-off tales from Borderlands. Despite not looking in the first trailer, Gearbox has indicated that characters from Borderlands: Pre-Sequel will also be displayed. Below you will find the confirmed recurring characters so far.
