For quite some time Gearbox Software was submerged by rumors about the new Borderlands game. Even before the official reveal there was quite a buzz surrounding the game. Yesterday, during a special Pax East 2019 presentation, Gearbox Software revealed Borderlands 3 with a new trailer confirming many previous leaks and offering plenty of new details about the title.
The trailer features a new set of Vault Hunters for players to choose from. However, for now, the new Vault Hunters’ abilities seem to be unknown and the trailer doesn’t really give any details. Where the information is more accurate is that Borderlands 3 will see plenty of returning characters amongst which is our favorite robot companion – Claptrap.
Borderlands 3 feature also reveals the new baddies for the game – The Calypso Twins. They are the leaders of the Children of the Vault cult which is going to oppose players in a variety of worlds. For now, it looks like Borderlands 3 will feature a whole array of both old and new locations for players to explore.
