Gearbox Software are, as anticipated, headed again to a beat-up alien planet for extra looting and taking pictures in Borderlands 3. They introduced their third game within the FPS action-RPG collection, which has additionally seen a prequel and spin-off from different builders, at PAX East as we speak with a flashy trailer. A trailer which appeared like heck through the large announcement presentation as a consequence of technical difficulties. Though the technical difficulties have been extra thrilling than the gradual card magic trick. Oh expensive. But the handy-dandy YouTube model of the announcement trailer works simply superb so hey look come and see.
I’m very into sprouting further puncharms within the method of Asura’s Wrath. And I like the concept its procedural gun-generation doodad can apparently now spit out lovable weapons which run round on wee legs? And appears to be like prefer it’s visiting a number of worlds?
Gearbox are fairly imprecise about every part you may’t see within the trailer. No phrase on a launch date, story particulars, any new shiny options it may need, which shops may promote it… nada. They’re planning to disclose extra on April third on the game’s site. Gearbox president Randy Pitchford stated that that they’ve been engaged on the game for 5 years so, y’know, I assume they do have one thing to say about it.
My prediction for as we speak’s announcement, particularly after a troubling hint sullying the nice title of Bulletstorm by placing Duke Nukem close to it once more, was a battle royale game set largely within the Borderlands world however borrowing characters from different Gearbox games too. But naw, that tweet was simply teasing a Nintendo Switch launch for Bulletstorm. I’m glad to be unsuitable about Duke showing in a brand new game. Still not finest happy about Gearbox placing Duke into Bulletstorm. Put Duke Nukem within the bin, endlessly. Oh, proper, sure, and I used to be unsuitable about battle royale too.
“Battle royale games are fun,” Pitchford stated at the beginning of the presentation. “That’s not what we’re making.”
Naw, what they’re making is extra Borderlands. Which I perceive is enjoyable with friends? I didn’t click on with the primary game as a result of it was dangerous as a looter and dangerous as a shooter, so I skipped the remainder, however then I’m advised I’m “great fun” by individuals who roll their eyes and do air quotes whereas saying that. I nonetheless say the very best Borderlands is Telltale’s episodic story ’em up Tales From The Borderlands. COME ON THEN I’LL HAVE YOU.
