The third Borderlands game may be released soon. Earlier this year, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said they are now developing Borderlands 3, and it has been more than six months since that announcement, leading many gamers to speculate the game is now underway. Now, here's the latest news and update about Borderlands 3 release date rumors, new characters and gameplay.
At this year's PAX East gaming conference, Pitchford confirmed the development of Borderlands 3. He said the development team is looking to improve the weapons and characters in the sequel to make it more appealing to gamers.
He also added Battleborn art director Scott Kester is assigned to design the locations and other elements in the game. Kester was also the art director of the existing Borderlands 2.
Furthermore, Gearbox chief creative Champion Mikey Neumann said there's a new character in the upcoming Borderlands game. He stated gamers can expect the appearance of Scooper, the son of Scooter the mechanic. Scooper is described as a boy who has high-pitched voice.
Several gaming websites say the game's protagonists will definitely return for Borderlands 3. In addition, previous characters could make an appearance in the new installment, but they may have some surprising twists. Take note that Handsome Jack first came out as a protagonist and ended up as a villain, and game developers may also do the same for some current main characters.
According to a report from Christian Today, the third installment in Borderlands franchise would become available sometime next year. It will reportedly have improved gameplay and graphic performance than its previous predecessors.
Developer Gearbox Software is known for releasing high-quality games, so we expect there are significant improvements in the next Borderlands shooter.
The Borderlands series features unique character-building elements that are found in RPG games. Some gamers also call it as role-playing shooter. The series is a breakthrough game that challenges all conventions of modern shooters. Borderlands puts players in the role of a mercenary on the lawless planet of Pandora.
While waiting for the third installment, let's see what gamers think about Borderlands 2. A review from IGN says the game's second installment has visually appealing elements, good narrative and revamped class skill design. In addition, there are exciting loots that long-time Borderlands players will really love.
With that being said, we'll you keep posted once Gearbox announces new information about Borderlands 3. Keep it locked here in Gospel Herald.
