What is Borderlands 3 about?
Borderlands 3 is the fifth game in the Borderlands universe. A few years after the second part, Pandora is the scene of a crazy bandit cult, the Children of the Vault, led by siblings Troy and Tyreen Calypso. Players will have to face them with one of four new heroes: a shooter who creates holograms of his own, a tamer of beasts, a siren, or a soldier with a Mech. Everything will be bigger and better - besides new weapons and vehicles; A Borderlands 3 key will offer you new worlds for the first time, even opening up travel to other planets. The Loot Shooter, which will be available exclusively on the PC via the Epic Games Store, for the time being, will offer a total of one billion different weapons, some of which are even able to walk, and features an immense amount of boss battles. Although you can play Borderlands 3 Deals solo, the heart of the shooter is the cooperative multiplayer mode and the associated online systems.
Developer Gearbox seems to be only slightly changing the Loot Shooter formula, which is understandable. The loyal, but merciless fanbase is likely to react extremely sensitive to big changes. Despite balancing and new skills and weapons, the post-apocalyptic action game plays exactly as always. A giant step for the franchise, on the other hand, is the game world: Even though it's not clear yet, how big the game will really be, the overdue optical enhancements are worth the trip. Having played Borderlands 3 for five hours now, we can rate it with some relief: The game doesn't seem to be making mistakes - at least not yet. The short gameplay we could experience was simply wonderful and reminded us of the classic Borderlands again. Only bigger, wackier and even more explosive. Exactly what we were looking for in the sequel! It contains almost every improvement we could have wished for and keeps away from modern trends like Open or Shared World, which a Borderland game simply doesn't need.
