The new Borderlands is just around the corner which means that we’re getting even more Borderlands 3 news. In this article, we’ll be presenting all the necessary information regarding the new game which is set to come out on September 13th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Where it will release?
While console gamers can be calm and acquire Borderlands 3 like any other game in the franchize, PC gamers will have to download Epic Games Store launcher. Right after the official reveal of the game, the developer Gearbox Software announced that Borderlands 3 for PC will be sold exclusively on Epic Games Store. As you might’ve guessed, such Borderlands 3 news have not been received well by the community…
For years, the Steam platform served as home for Borderlands series on PC, so naturally, players want to keep all the games in the series in one place. While the launcher might be just a minor detail for some, for others it’s a big deal. So, if you’re among those who want to keep all of their Borderlands games in one place, you should know that Epic Games Store snagged a timed-exclusive deal. After 6 months the game should debut on Steam as well.
New story and places to explore
Borderlands 3 news revealed that the series will make a huge leap forward. According to the numerous posts, trailers and some cleverly obtained leaks, Borderlands 3 will be bigger than ever before. The game will pick up the story right after the events of the latest Borderlands 2 DLC called Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary.
In this DLC, players fought alongside commander Lilith and found out about other Vaults scattered across other planets. In order to stop the main villains – the Calypso Twins – players will set out to planets other than our familiar Pandora to secure the legendary Vaults. For now, Borderlands 3 news revealed Atlas, Eden-6, and Athenas as new playable planets.
The new set of Vault Hunters
Each of the Borderlands titles brings a fresh set of Vault Hunters to choose from. This time the roster is really interesting and should bring some fresh gameplay experience and customization options. Borderlands 3 news revealed Amara, the new Siren character, Zane the Operative, FL4K the Beastmaster, and Moze the Gunner as playable characters. Each of the bunch will possess three distinct skill trees and plenty of customization options.
Amara the Siren takes up the mantle of Sirens. Unlike her predecessors from previous Borderlands games, Lillith and Maya, Amara will be a melee-focused character. She will be able to summon multiple ethereal arms that can punch bad guys like nothing else. Her three skill tree branches are Brawl, Mystical Assault, and Fist of the Elements.
Zane the Operative will be equipped with a variety of tools helping him to create chaos and sneak back out of dangerous situations as if he was never even there. While such style of combat will be familiar to those who played Zero in Borderlands 2, Under Cover, Hitman, and Doubled Agent skill trees will help you create a truly unique feel to it.
According to the latest Borderlands 3 news, FL4K the Beastmaster will be the hunter counterpart of Borderlands 3. And that should certainly pump up most of the fans that have had any experience with the class before (no matter the game). Each of his three skill trees – Hunter, Master, and Stalker – will offer players access to a unique pet and an active skill.
Moze the Gunner will represent a gunner class in Borderlands 3. This is the heavy rotator-based arsenal wielding class that with no doubt will appeal to those seeking for ultimate desolation on the playground. Moze’s main ability is her mech-suit Iron Bear which will get different weapons in different skill trees – Demolition Woman, Bottomless Mags, and Shield of Retribution.
If you’re a long-time fan of Borderlands franchise, you know that the most fun part about Borderlands 3 gameplay is guns. Borderlands 3 news, that have already been shared with the public, states that the new game will have over one billion of firepower choices This means endless possibilities to customize your playstyle and keep coming back to the game even after you did all the story quests.
In addition to guns, Gearbox Software is adding a new raiding system which will go well together with tons of new special events. The developers ensured players that Borderlands 3 will have live support that will dynamically change the game worlds once you reach the end game. The changes awaiting players on the end game content are so far a mystery, however, we should get more on this sometime before the release.
All the above presented Borderlands 3 news and, literally, tons of content still left under the hood, promises us a real treat – coming our way at the blasphemous speeds this September.
