Borderlands 3 gets its first trailer at PAX East

Borderlands 3 Is In Development

Borderlands 3 Is In Development

The biggest news to come from Gearbox's PAX East 2019 panel was undoubtedly the reveal of Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3, so stay tuned for more updates and start deciding which of these new characters you're going to main in the wastes of Pandora. Saws are also seen placed on top of the cars, hinting of new vehicular combat options being added to Borderlands 3.

If you'll remember the events of Tales from the Borderlands, you'll know that Rhys accidentally uploads a copy of Handsome Jack's AI into his ECHO eye implant, and is subsequently tortured by his holographic ghost throughout the events of Telltale's adventure game.

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. We, like many, believed that to be a Switch port of that title, but we were wrong.

They cite people pretending to point a gun at Muslim women as an example of the correlation to the New Zealand killings. Ms Ardern has ruled out re-introducing the death penalty for the trial.

It's all very silly of course, down to the trailer's surprise sax solo and literally formulaic finale, but what else would one feasibly expect the first taste of a Borderlands game to look like?

Today, Gearbox Software announced a number of Borderlands-related news.

The crafty beggars even hid a SHIFT code in the trailer, which unlocks Salvador's Community Day skin in 2012's Borderlands 2. Does it try to bring in elements of Battle Royale a la PUBG and Fortnite?

2018 gave us no concrete information about Borderlands, but earlier this year signs pointed to a potential Borderlands 3 announcement coming soon, while a teaser trailer released yesterday heavily teased what would be Borderlands 3. Borderlands' witty humour and cel-shaded graphics have captured the hearts of many players over the years.
