It was never really an issue, but no one should worry about a lack of gun type variation—Borderlands 3 claims to have more than a billion guns, including walking guns with legs and mecha-suits. Holy skag sack! Full of new characters, endless loot, slick-lookin’ enemies and a rich, biodiverse world to romp about, it looks as though Borderlands 3 will return to its rightful throne in the gaming community.
In a tender moment during the live-streamed PAX event, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said his team’s “deepest wish is to just show [us] a worthy successor.” The trailer isn’t particularly revelatory with respect to game’s plot, but its action-packed scenes and Gearbox’s promise of more in-depth updates on April 3 will keep fans hyped up this spring.
Before the trailer dropped, Gearbox teased fans with a cryptic animation sequence dubbed “Mask of Mayhem.” The teaser ignited subreddits and editorials into a speculative frenzy, but the trailer answers some of those theories—a group of fans think they've found the holy grail: the release date.
