Ooh. So many, many things to pick through. Lots of familiar and new characters. New Vault Hunters? New villains? New vehicles? Hard to say.

I think it's two days to PAX East? Bloody Hell I can't wait.

Edit: Arekkz Gaming has a frame-by-frame breakdown of the teaser. Again, so many, many things to pick through - including a hidden SHIFT code!

What if the game is actually a mobile game?

Big BL fan here, but the multiple playthrus needed FOR EACH CHARACTER got boring real quick as a solo player.

And Jesus, fix UVHM from BL2. Regenerating shielded basic enemies got old quick. TPS got that right atleast.

borderlands is incredibly overrated. donot care. Rage 2 is going to destroy borderlands 3 in every single way from gameplay to graphics.

Still baffled by the comparison. Borderlands and Rage aren't even the same genre. Even their settings aren't the same; Borderlands is a Space Western, Rage is post-apocalyptic.

You don't like looter shooters, that's fine. Many people don't either, and I fully respect their entitlement to that opinion. But you are comparing apples and oranges.

BL2 was released in 2012. What the hell have they been doing?

Instead of doing what sells, what people love and have been screaming for. Smart business move.

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel came out in 2014.

For me, definitely. Destiny and Destiny 2 are bland and personality-less. The Division and The Division 2 are too grounded, not enough crazy. Anthem is just a shitshow. Even Warframe (happy 6th birthday 2 days ago!), which I still enjoy and play daily, still from time to time makes me say; "wait a minute, Borderlands 2 did this better years ago."

The king is back, baby, and he's going to show the kids how it's done.

That wasn't Gearbox. It was an Australian dev under the 2K umbrella.

I think TPS improved on a lot of things from BL2, but it felt like a step backwards in some ways.

Dont like borderlands, looter shooters have gotten too repetitive. The only one I can stomach is warframe which I play casually from time to time, but if it wasnt free I wouldnt play it lol

The title makes me think it's a Battle Royale.

If it's not in it, they will probably put it in it.

Because.

I'll be keeping tabs on Borderlands 3 even though I don't like Randy Pitchford but he better not screw this up.

Thanks. Editing to adding more videos to a post on this forum seems to be bugged, so I didn't bother, and decided to let another thread carry it instead.

Yeah, not much to go one right now. Apparently more will be revealed on the 3rd. It does look like a proper Borderlands game, though, and that's enough for me to fire up my hype-mobile.

I will not reward them for stealing from Sega and ruining Colonial Marines, besides, seems pointless since other devs will cover same territory and do it better, like Rage 2 and Destiny. Yawn, has beens.
