re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

I don't know where you guys pulled battle royale out of, but everything in that teaser would seem to line up with the 4chan leak from a few days ago

Spoiler:
  • Takes place 5 years after the end of BL2/TPS
  • Tannis is not what she seems
  • AI Jack may be back, but he's not the villain
  • Rhys is back as CEO of Atlas. Atlas is back as a manufacturer. Gorty is back to help the player find multiple vaults in the game. Not just one vault this time. Tina is back as an adult. No word on the others but you can expect cameos from everyone like in BL2
  • Writing is more like BL1 than BL2
  • 4 new vault hunters
  • Abilities have been reworked, everyone now has multiple action skills instead of one
  • Flak the Beastmaster is a homeless looking android. He can summon multiple creatures to help him fight. The AI for this is what delayed announcement last October. So hopefully it's fixed now.
  • The woman seen in the UE4 demo last year is a Valdof character who is the gunner class. She can summon a bear mech on which other players can ride. Summons the mech like in Titanfall. No word on how this works indoors.
  • The older male is like Batman. He's the stealth/assassin character. He's rich and uses gadgets for his action skills.
  • There's a black woman Siren character. She's melee oriented like Brick was. She will have several siren abilities like phase-lock, phase-shift, and a ground pound skill.
  • NPCs can revive you now if you're close enough and go into FFYL
  • Guns are reworked. You'll have changeable gun parts of various rarities/stats. You'll be able to alter the type of gun, the firing rate, the reload speed, the stability, and element as you find new parts.
  • The bad guys are The Calypso Twins. One is a female siren (as only women can be sirens) and the other is a male who somehow has siren powers. Either he figured out a way to give anyone siren powers or the bond between twins allows him to share his sister's powers. They're rumored to be ex-Atlas employees
  • The Calypso twins rule The Children of the Vault, a cult mob that will replace Bandits/Scavs as the default human mob.
  • They will have their own weapon brand
  • All brands returning except Bandit/Scav
  • All elements returning except Slag, Laser, and Ice. New elements are rumored and the only lead says "nuclear" is one of them.
  • You'll start on Pandora but leave shortly into the game on Sanctuary 3, the Crimson Raider's ship. It will be the hub for multiple planet locations.
  • We're going to Promethea


Anyway, can't wait for the actual announcement. My wife and I have played through all 3 main games (and the telltale one, too) together and that is the most fun I've ever had gaming, so bring on BL3.

Maybe I'm just reading into the trailer too much, but I saw it and with all of the chaos going on, just figured they were teasing an upcoming Battle Royal mode in Borderlands 3. In this case, I would love to be wrong.

Is anyone else watching their PAX event right now? It's been a technical mess so far with their videos. I kinda feel bad for them

They are going to be showing the Borderlands 3 reveal trailer very soon.

Technical difficulties aside, trailer looked great and what they showed looked like a ton of fun.

WOW...about time....Borderlands 3 almost looks like a collection of "Greatest Hits" with all the characters from the past. Some awesome new settings as well and not just some wasteland. Might have to after all get the B1 GOTY edition and play thru once again....didn't see a release month for BL3 though


In case some didn't catch it or want to know just what the Borderlands GOTY Edition has.....

"The package will include all of Borderlands’ DLC: The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition will be a visually remastered version of the game, with upgraded lighting, character models, and textures. PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of the game support 4K resolution and HDR lighting.

Gearbox and co-developer Blind Squirrel Games are also adding some quality of life improvements to the Game of the Year edition, including a Borderlands 2-style minimap. The remaster will also support four-player split-screen co-op.

Other improvements coming in Borderlands: Game of the Year include a tougher final boss battle and new character customizations for Vault Hunters."

And Gamesradar did another breakdown but with the new reveal trailer and caught some surprising details that's a good read......

I think the presentation of the Borderlands GoTY Edition had technical issues like some others...so here is the trailer for it....boy does it bring back lots of great memories....



Someone thinks they uncovered the release date of Borderlands 3 hidden by code in the BL3 trailer. In the part showing the skyscrapers, two have a number..."01" and "10"....the theory is that's October 1, 2019. For one, October 1st this is a Tuesday...normally days when games are released. Second and more importantly...October is the 10th Anniversary of Borderlands.

Yeah, and Pitchford said they'll reveal the release date on April 4, but to expect the game sooner rather later, which would mean by Thanksgiving at the latest. I'm sure they're gonna have tons of DLC coming for a while after too.

I know it's April Fools day and all, but considering it's on a Friday (a bigger release day now for games), why wouldn't you want to release on Friday the 13th?

I guess we'll know on Thursday for sure.

Great news and great date....beats all the rush and decisions for the Fall releases that will end up dropping October & November. Day one pre-order for me and several others who have waited a long time.....love the cover...sort has a Far Cry flavor to it....

Just bought Super-Deluxe Edition. $80 with GCU sounds reasonable to me.

Same here. Hopefully it will be added to the $10 reward zone certificate list later on.

Apparently a huge plus already for the game...you will be able to toggle on & off..... Individual Loot...instead of being the old way where everyone just stared and figured out what they wanted and/or needed....it'll drop per player or you can toggle the old system on as before. Question is...will leaving the old system in place have better guns to pick over?
