Borderlands 3 Release Date and More Revealed


Borderlands 3 has been one of the most requested sequels to a game in the last few years, and last week the game was officially revealed! Today, we’ve got some new information about it, including a new gameplay trailer and special editions. Gearbox will also be holding a “World Gameplay Reveal Event” for the game on May 1. In the meantime, read on to get some more details about the new playable characters, their villainous enemies, bandits, guns, and loot.

Getting the biggest news out of the way, Borderlands 3 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox one, and Epic Games Store timed exclusive on PC on Sept 13, 2019!

Be part of the return of the Vault Hunters, the “ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands” with four new characters to come to know:

Moze as THE GUNNER:
When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech –Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.

Amara as THE SIREN:
A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.

FL4K as THE BEASTMASTER:
FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.

Zane as THE OPERATIVE:
Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.

The Vault Hunters this time are trying to stop the Calypso Twins, fanatical cult leaders attempting to “unite the bandit clans and claim the galaxy’s ultimate power.” In pursuit of this goal, players will journey beyond the limitations of Pandora to new worlds with new enemies; war-torn cityscapes, murky bayous, barren deserts, and more.
