Borderlands 3 and Borderlands Remaster finally announced by Gearbox

Literally the worst kept secret in the history of video games is that Gearbox have been working on Borderlands 3 for the last half decade, but it’s never formally been announced. Until now. Borderlands 3 is a thing that’s happening and Gearbox and 2K will be revealing more details next week on 3rd April, but for now there’s a reveal trailer:

So yeah, that looks pretty Borderlands, right? Well you know what else looks pretty Bordlerands? Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. It will feature new weapons, a big visual upgrade, quality of life improvements, all four DLC packs and more. And it’s out next week on 3rd April.

Also happening next week on 3rd April? The Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be given a visual bump with Ultra HD texture packs to make those graphics look all spiffy when playing on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC with a 4K display.

And finally, Borderlands 2 VR’s biggest omission is being fixed, with all the DLC bundles that were missing at launch being released for free this summer.

That enough Borderlands now?

  1. Borderlands 3 looks exactly the same graphically as the first. And I don’t just mean the art style. It doesn’t look like much of a leap.

    • It looks like some improvement over the previous games. Not a huge difference, but then it’s only from a short trailer, and what exactly could they do while maintaining the art style? I’ve always assumed the style of the first game was partly artistic, and partly for technical reasons.

      The lighting at least seems to be a big improvement.

      But who cares? It looks fine, and it’s more Borderlands. Hopefully it’s a long way off, as I’ve now got to play the first one again. And probably the VR one now it’s got all the DLC and Aim support.

      • They’ve branded this ‘The Year of Borderlands’, so maybe not as far off as you’re hoping.
