Borderlands 3’s First Gameplay Trailer Reveals Tons of Details

After many weeks of teasing a new title that fans suspected was Borderlands 3, Gearbox finally took the time to reveal the game and drop a gameplay trailer at PAX East yesterday (3/28/19).

Borderlands 3 Official Trailer



Those that have played any of the previous Borderlands titles will recognize many familiar elements from throughout the series. A team of four vault hunters, "1 billion" guns, big mechs and vehicles, Claptrap, and his vast array of stylish dance moves, the series' iconic cel-shaded graphics, and huge levels that give players a sandbox to roam around and shoot baddies. Plenty of classic characters also popped up throughout the trailer including: Brick, Lilith, Maya, Mordecai, Ellie, Marcus, Tiny Tina, and plenty of others.

New Vault Hunters and Abiliites

It did not take long but fans are already discussing what the new vault hunters abilities using hints from the trailer.

  • There's a muscle-bound female character that appears to be a siren. She is seen spawning six ethereal arms and later in the trailer a giant arm has an enemy trapped in a bubble.
  • A small female hunter is seen standing in front of a mech that she can apparently summon. Later in the trailer, she is driving a giant motorized tire and shooting its variety of guns.
  • A soldier-like male hunter is seen using a device that creates a holographic version of himself.
  • Finally, there's a robotic hunter in a cape that can allegedly command pets such as a skag and spiderant.

The trailer also revealed a variety of different worlds that players will be exploring including the familiar desert, green and watery swamplands, and a slick future city. Also included in the trailer were a numerous amount of enemy types and beautiful (and we mean so so beautiful) showers of green, blue, and purple loot.

Borderlands 3 Could Become a Reality

Borderlands 3, is that you?

Borderlands fans have been asking for Borderlands 3 since 2012, immediately after the second game released. The open world action RPG achieved a level of entertainment value well above similar shared-world shooter games released toward the latter end of the decade. Now, 7 years after the release of Borderlands 2, Gearbox is reving up fans by teasing a possible release of Borderlands 3.

Gearbox announced their appearance at the PAX East mainstage by sharing the image below on Twitter. Look carefully at the top right of the image. “Exit 3” can be seen poking out, partially cropped out of the image. Along with the Exit 3 hint, the Tweet was sent out exactly at 3:00pm.

Gearbox will take the main theater stage at PAX East on March 28th. The studio’s event takes place on the first day of PAX East so fans won’t have to wait long to see if Gearbox is ready to drop Borderlands 3. A description accompanied the Gearbox event which reads, “This is your opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing, along with the latest news and updates from the makers of Borderlands, Battleborn, Brothers in Arms, and more! We will have never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises, so don’t miss out!”

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, Borderlands was massively successful at creating a cooperative first-person shooter that puts major titles like Destiny, Fallout 76, and most recently Anthem to shame. Gearbox was able to create a single-player world that transitions to cooperative play seamlessly. It has a massive amount of content and most importantly, released as a complete game. However, Borderlands 2 did release in 2012, well before this new “Games as a Service” model was first introduced. If Gearbox does announce Borderlands 3 and they stay true to what their fans know and love, it will have a massive chance at overshaddowing Anthem or the upcoming shared-world-shooter, The Division 2.

It’s not confirmed Borderlands 3 is the announcement Gearbox Software has planned for their main stage presentation at PAX East 2019. Even with the multiple references to “3”, Gearbox is infamous for trolling fans, but in a good way. For all the gamers that want to get their hands on Borderlands 3, it would be a crushing blow to watch Gearbox come and go from that main theater without official word on the third Borderlands.
