Borderlands 3 Finally Confirmed, Watch the Gameplay Reveal Trailer

Adjust Comment Print

Not even a presentation riddled with technical difficulties could stop the crowd from roaring when Gearbox officially lifted the lid on Borderlands 3 today at PAX East.

We have no idea when Borderlands 3 will launch, nor do we know how much it will cost or what platforms it may (or may not) be exclusive to. At the moment, only an nearly four minute reveal trailer showing off the four new characters and the different allies and enemies they will encounter is available, but there is a promise that more information will arrive on April 3, 2019.

Even if you're completely new to the Borderlands franchise, the trailer for Borderlands 3 did a pretty unbelievable job as summing up what this wild and insane franchise is all about - fun! However, the company also gave some love to its past Borderlands games as well, confirming a remastered version of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, as well as a big update coming to Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. These links leave Siliconera. Returning SHiFT users who've played Borderlands 2 or The Pre-Sequel on PS4, Xbox One, or PC will receive 75 free Golden Keys, as well as two randomly selected all-new weapons, for their first newly-created Vault Hunter.

Not too many details have been given yet about Borderlands 3 outside of the trailer above, but more information will arrive on April 3, 2019.

Doing this allows Apple to spend less on creating new hardware and designs, while producing more options for consumers. Earlier iPad rumors had also suggested Apple would jump to a 10.2-inch model from the current 9.7-inch offering.

Gearbox didn't share any specifics regarding Borderlands 3, but the reveal trailer showcased just about everything fans of the franchise care about: action-packed gameplay, exotic environments, intriguing characters, and billions upon billions of weapons.

Gearbox has also teased a number of separate announcements for non-Borderlands releases, although some are clearly tongue-in-cheek.

"Battle royale games are fun".

"Borderlands 3 has been in development in five years", Randy Pitchford said on stage. We even see some characters like Rhys from Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands.
