Borderlands 3 Announced, Releasing in September

Gearbox Software have announced the newest addition to the Borderlands franchise, Borderlands 3.

The franchise returns with new worlds and enemies to explore and encounter, along with players being able to play as one of four brand new Vault Hunters. Each one has unique abilities and playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalisation options. Gearbox have explained more about each Vault Hunter below.

  • 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.

Gearbox Software President and CEO Randy Pitchford discusses further about the development of Borderlands 3, saying that “For the past several years, the team at Gearbox Software has been devoting every ounce of our passion, creativity and love into making Borderlands 3 the biggest, baddest and most ambitious Borderlands adventure we’ve ever made”.

Borderlands 3 is being crafted not only as a love letter to fans of the series, but also as an ideal entry point for new players to jump-in alone or cooperatively, on or off-line, in the latest and greatest installment of the definitive best-in-class benchmark shooter-looter.”

Borderlands 3 is set to release on 13 September. Let us know if you’re keen for this game!
