Following a round with the press to show off Borderlands 3 in Los Angeles, a fresh batch of gameplay from Gearbox’s loot shooter has gone live this morning. Here’s how it’s shaping up.
The video below features footage from Amara, showing off her Siren powers and the story mission “Hostile Takeover”. One of the cool weapons shown early off is a shotgun that can rotate between shock and fire damage, which is always useful. You’ll also get to see the introduction to Lorelei, as well as Tyreen’s constant frustrations in trying to get Psychos to not kill everything. There’s also a boss fight at 32 minutes, featuring Gigamind.
The inventory UI looks good, resolving one of my major gripes with previous Borderlands games. The rest looks like, well, refreshed Borderlands. That’s pretty much what people have wanted for years – a newer Borderlands with more stuff, and ideally no oxygen mechanics.
Borderlands 3 hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 13, with the PC version a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store until April 2020.
