Gearbox Announces Borderlands 3

Gearbox Announces Borderlands 3 The long-anticipated third Borderlands game is coming, Gearbox said today, following months worth of hints and teases. No word on platforms or a release date just yet, although publisher 2K Games has suggested that it’ll be out within this coming fiscal year (which ends next April). This is the fourth entry in the critically and commercially successful loot-shooting Borderlands series, after the first two games and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which came out in 2014.

Alternate Firing Modes. We all know about the endless amount of crazy weapons that the Borderlands series brings to the table – with Borderlands 3 boasting an insane one billion – but one of the most exciting parts about the weapons in the third installment is their alternate firing modes.

Andrew M writes: "Alongside 1 billion different types of guns, Borderlands 3 is set to add plenty of new features to the game that'll make it feel fresh and fun." I love the borderlands series. Been waiting for years for this game. I’ve spent countless hours offline and co op.

Borderlands 3 is still a few months away, but players already have a good idea of the major changes coming to the game. In its gameplay reveal stream earlier this month, Gearbox showed off a few new features for players to try out in the series’ third entry.

Some changes are slightly altered takes on previous features in Borderlands, while others bring something completely new to the table.

1. Multiple active abilities per character

In Borderlands 3, every character has three different active abilities. Depending on the character, they may also have augments to those abilities or an element associated with them. The Action Skills are also available at level one, so players don’t need to plow through a group of quests first.

Borderlands 3 expands upon the conclusion of Borderlands 2 by making space travel a part of the main storyline, and in the game you will be tracking down the leaders of the It seems so small, and yet it’s so big . The inconvenience of missing a jump and having to go around the long way is over.

2. Slag is replaced with radiation

The Slag element from Borderlands 2 — which increased damage to affected targets — won’t be coming back in Borderlands 3. Instead, Randy Pitchford confirmed on Twitter that Radiation will be the new element type. Like Slag, Radiation will increase damage on effected enemies, but they’ll also take damage-over-time.

3. No new Vault Hunters planned

When Borderlands 2 came out, players already knew the Mechromancer class was on the way. Borderlands 3 is moving in a different direction. The studio has said it currently has no plans for new Vault Hunters post-release.

4. Mantling and movement

At the gameplay reveal event, characters were climbing up boxes and buildings, as well as sliding around. These changes are significant upgrades to the movement system in the older Borderlands games and should help players navigate the environments better.

5. Space and other planetary travel

Borderlands 3 will finally see players leave Pandora’s orbit. Sanctuary 3 is a new spaceship that acts as the player’s hub location. It’s also an intergalactic ferry to new and exciting worlds. Players will spend time on multiple planets with their own, unique aesthetic.

6. A new voice for Claptrap

Previous Gearbox employee David Eddings originally voiced Claptrap — the beloved robot mascot of Borderlands. Eddings no longer works at the company, citing an incident where studio head Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him in a Marriott. Eddings was subsequently fired after informing Gearbox’s HR department. Eddings has made it clear on Twitter that he won’t be returning to the role.

7. Guardian Ranks replace Badass Ranks

Borderlands 2 had a Badass Rank system, where players could earn points by completing challenges. After completing so many challenges, players could trade in points for an increase in stats. The Guardian Ranks in Borderlands 3 look more elaborate, and don’t open up until players have beaten the main story — making it more of an endgame pursuit.

8. Loot instancing and scaling

At its gameplay reveal event, Gearbox revealed Borderlands 3 new instanced loot and loot scaling. The idea is that players of all levels can join up and play together without ruining the experience. And with loot instancing, players can earn their own guns unique to them, instead of fighting their allies for a perfect role. For players who want to do things the old way, Borderlands 3 will offer a Classic Mode.

9. Player housing

On Sanctuary 3, players have their own quarters. They can decorate the walls with their favorite guns and pull them down any time. Based on the gameplay reveal stream, some of these personalizations will change depending on the player character.

10. An interactive environment (burning oil, kicking barrels, etc)

At the gameplay reveal event, Gearbox showed off the ability to interact with the environment. Players can electrocute water puddles or light oil on fire. Melee attacking a elemental barrel in the environment will send it flying in the targeted direction, making it easier to set up explosive elemental combinations.

11. Secondary fire toggles

Some weapons have alternative firing modes in Borderlands 3. The gameplay reveal event showed off a pistol that could shoot rockets, and explained that certain elemental weapons can change elements on the fly. Some guns have new effects too, like weapons that players can throw on the ground to make walking turrets.

12. Universal ground pound for all classes

The ground pound from Borderlands: The Presequel is a new default ability in Borderlands 3. Amara has a specific Action Skill that’s a powerful area smash attack, but the ground pound is universal for all players.

13. New enemy names

Borderlands is an older franchise, and many things haven’t aged well over 10 years. One of the problems is a common enemy type called “Midgets.” According to an interview from PCGamesN, Gearbox won’t move forward with the enemy name. Smaller versions of enemies in Borderlands 3 are now called “Tinks” instead — which isn’t a great alternative either. As Ali Jones from PCGamesN mentions, other problematic terms like “Psycho” still remain.
