‘Borderlands 3′ officially announced after six years
Gearbox took to PAX East 2019 with some exciting news for Borderlands fans.
After six long years, Gearbox head Randy Pitchford and creative director Paul Sage took to the stage to announce Borderlands 3. Though there were initially a few frustrating technical difficulties during the panel, things eventually smoothed out – enough for Randy to spill the beans, anyway, and for the crowd to get riled up.
The trailer gave us our first look at four new Vault Hunter characters, including a new Siren character with a robe companion, as well as some interesting magical arms that surround her. It also appears old Vault Hunter characters will be making an appearance as well, so don't count them out just yet.
Perhaps more interestingly, the game is also going to transcend the boundaries of the previous planet Borderlands 2 was set on (Pandora), as it appears there are additional planets Vault Hunters will be able to travel to.
Interestingly enough, the trailer also promised a ridiculous number of weapons – over a billion, to be precise. Of course, that's probably overestimating it a bit, but Borderlands has always been known for its ridiculous amount of firepower for players to take advantage of.
There wasn't much information given outside of what the trailer showed, but we can expect to hear more about the game on April 3.
In addition to Borderlands 3, Gearbox announced Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, which is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3.
For those who prefer their Vault Hunting action in a more analog format, Tiny Tina's Robot Tea Party also made its debut during the panel. The Borderlands-centric card game is being sold as of today for attendees at PAX East 2019, with attendees able to pick up a copy right now.
It's a great time to be a Borderlands fan, that's for sure.
