Gearbox and 2K have dropped a new character trailer for Borderlands 3 and this week we get to meet Amara, “a powerful brawler, renowned champion of the people, and bonafide Siren badass.”
She has also got some seriously impressive abs.
2K also released the very odd (read: someone has been smoking the funny stuff) ‘Happy Together’ trailer which you can see below in all it’s technocolour dancing madness.
You can read our North American correspondent’s impressions of Borderlands 3, in which he explored the multiplayer tools that will be present for single players to interact with. In his article Miguel wrote, “Borderlands 3 is shaping up to be a hell of a package. The baddy-blasting action and gun-hoarding of the last game is only amplified, on top of being complemented by new customisation features and some really intriguing new online mechanics. It’s been a long time coming, but with a showing like this, I’m confident that the wait for Borderlands 3 will be well worth it.”

Gearbox has borrowed a few ideas for the game and has confirmed that Borderlands 3 will also have a pinging system which will allow players to highlight weapons, enemies, and points of interest without having to speak to your co-op partners.
When it comes to accessibility options all controls will be remappable so players can choose the best button layout for themselves, which in turn makes the game compatible with the Xbox Adaptive controller. There will be visual options for players who are affected by colour blindness, there will be auto-aim options, headbobs can be toggled, and there will be closed captioning included too. Free For All duelling will also be added meaning 1v1v1v1 competitive multiplayer. Asynchronous multiplayer will be present too so players can play while waiting for others to join.
If streaming is your thing then viewers can browse a streamer’s loot and loadout which gives them a chance to get some loot. If certain conditions are met Twitch viewers can spawn events in a streamer’s game.
Borderlands 3 will be released on September 13th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It has also been confirmed for Google Stadia.
