    Its been rumoured for the last couple weeks. This all but confirms it

    :handclap:



    Boston is referring to PAX East, where it was previously teased Gearbox was making a major announcement.

    Also, the obvious - its Borderlands styled artwork.

    And finally "Exit 3"

    Update Mar 27


    EDIT - Official trailer

    Oh thank God! I wonder when it will release. This is my most anticipated game of all time. I have hundreds of hours into BL2 and still play it every once in a while. I hope it releases this summer, but I doubt it. My big fear is they **** up the microtransactions and make certain legendaries have like a .01% drop rate but can be purchased for $5 or something stupid like that. Or you can buy a booster that makes legendaries drop more frequently or something. None of that, PLEASE. Sell the cosmetics, sell the headhunter packs and stuff like that. Keep the loot out of the microtransactions.

    I just want a true Borderlands game.

    My biggest fear is they transform it into some Destiny/Anthem "game as a service" always online crap.

    I played likely 300 hours of solo BL2. Its one of my favourites of all time.

    Please dont screw this up

    Ugh. That would be absolutely awful. I loved both BL1 and BL2. I have been eagerly awaiting the 3rd installment for a while. Please be good.

    I hope they stick with the formula.

    Like, Ive accepted that its going to have microtransactions (Golden Keys seems built for this) but I hope they dont try and change up the gameplay style significantly.

    One of the IGN podcasts talked about this last week when the first rumbling were coming out. They talked about how Borderlands is more or less the first of the looter-shooters and how much the industry and that type of game has changed since BL2 in 2012.

    Sure and to an extent, I have accepted that microtransactions are a part of gaming. But there is a big difference between having microtransactions be a supplement to a game and creating a pay to win game via microtransactions. I guess we will find out more in two weeks!

    I don't see how they avoid the allure of a Destiny type games as a service thing. Either that or there's gonna be a battle royale mode. They're gonna have some kind of way to monetize well into the lifespan of the game.

    I hope it's just straight BL, but I have my doubts.

    The Hornet? I think? Pretty decent pistol, especially for the first play through. Gotta farm the Bonus Package from Boom Bewm :) That thing clears rooms on the first play through.

    It’s sad that our first reaction is “please don’t **** it up”. So much disappointment recently.

    As much as it probably means borderlands 3, nothing about that is official.

    Plus their CEO is a total nutcase sociopath. I believe it'll be really good though.

    BL2 was the best looter shooter I've ever played.


    I didn't really care for it.



    The world was really fun, though. I'm glad they are making more.

    How is the Handsome Collection on PS4? It's always tempting when it's down to 20 bucks, just haven't pulled the trigger yet. I only played maybe 10 hours of BL1 on PS3 so most of it will be new to me. Isn't there local co-op, to play through the story together?

    The presentation is significantly better between my 360 and XB1. Higher frame rate really helps.

    Damn it. Now youve got me doubting.

    I do find it highly unlikely theyd tease a BL1 remaster as a major announcement though.

    BL1 isnt really that good to be honest. Ive long felt it was more of a concept test and BL2 is what they really wanted to do. BL2 is leaps and bounds better in every single way.

    I actually liked BL 1 the most lol. Claptrap was such a cool surprise. But in 2 he was overplayed.

    So tired of skins on stuff. Who the F cares about what the gun/character looks like. I can get the editing of the stuff but don't make me grind just to get rewarded with a skin that I don't give a **** about. I pray they don't mess this up. I hope they fix the sniper class. Zero's ability was a waste. He's a sniper so you give him a close combat ability. It wouldn't be bad if you could've projected it instead of dropping it.
