It’s been too long since we got a true Borderlands sequel.
Since Borderlands 2 initially released back in 2012, we’ve gotten a’Pre-Sequel’, a Handsome Series (a compilation for the current generation of consoles), Borderlands two VR, and also a Telltale games spin-off – Tales From the Borderlands. Now thanks to a new teaser tweet in the franchise’s developer Gearbox Software, it appears that there’s a Borderlands 3 that we may be shown as early as March 28 in PAX East.
The teaser is true very mysterious, but signs pointing to the reveal are there. It’s a cell-shaded film that states March 28, Boston MA – that is the date and location of Pax East this season. Further, the cell-shaded artwork is directly out of the art-style used in Borderlands games. There is also a 3 concealed over the sign that could be an indication that the game we expect to see will be Borderlands 3.
What remains to be watch is whether the match will be scheduled for a 2019 launch or afterwards. The tweet does indicate a similar art style to that which has been used in the last matches, but it remains to be seen what visual improvements will be within the new sport.
The Borderlands series of matches are fan favourites due to their witty writing, high-loot pushed action-RPG gameplay, along with the exceptional weapon modding ability. We may safely expect these features to return but the big issue is what else will Gearbox add in the new game to keep things new in 2019. We are going to have to wait until March 28 to learn.
