Explore ‘Borderland 3’ As Four New Vault Hunters This Fall


Borderlands (Gearbox)

On Wednesday, developer Gearbox and publisher 2K confirmed when the hotly-anticipated Borderlands 3 would finally drop, and it’s scheduled for Sept. 13. It will grace the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC platforms, although it will be limited to the Epic Games Store on the latter until April 2020.

In addition, Gearbox uploaded a trailer for their action title, showcasing the Vault Hunters and their antagonists, the Calypso Twins. The studio also opened up about the four new playable Hunters, describing their abilities and classifications:

  • Moze as The Gunner: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech – Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.

  • Amara as The Siren: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.

  • FL4K as The Beastmaster: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.

  • Zane as The Operative: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.

According to Gearbox, “new worlds beyond Pandora” will be accessible for exploration and ripe for looting. And the series’ affinity for firearms remains as strong as ever, with guns capable of spawning shields, volcanos, and limbs. The latter firearm will then walk up to its target and insult them verbally.

Additionally, Borderlands 3 will deploy a new level syncing system that will ease players’ abilities to play together regardless of their story progress.
