Gearbox eventually released Borderlands 3 at PAX East, and Borderlands fans Jordan and Jean-Luc describe why it was a bad payoff for 5 years of hype and excitement.
Gearbox had been teasing a new Borderlands game for years, But was it any good? It’s been a long wait for Borderlands 3; the last entry released in 2012, and the last shooter in the series released in 2014. As such, hopes were running high, and the trailer didn’t surely deliver.
The trailer gives a mix of new and returning characters, including what are probably the new playable characters. But this was ultimately more of a tease than anything else, as we didn’t get any hard details on what they play like, how the gameplay has changed from past entries, and so on.Borderlands 3 didn’t have a release date, but we are getting more info on April 3. Also coming soon is an enhanced re-release of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition and visual improvements to The Handsome Collection. All of this entails what Gearbox calls the Year of Borderlands, which might suggest that Borderlands 3 will launch before the end of the year.
