The E3 2018 is over, but during the event, participants didn’t hear any announcement concerning the Borderland 3 game release date. Even so, gamers are still hoping that it will come soon, especially because recent rumors mention some of the game’s features. Under these circumstances, we can understand why people are so anxious to get their hands on Borderland 3.
The game hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but reliable sources claim that it exists more or less. One of the first persons who talked about more games from the Borderland series was Gearbox’s CEO himself.
During a panel from the PAX East 2016, Randy Pitchford confirmed the developer’s intention to release more Borderlands. He continued by adding that the next episode could receive a different name, leaving enough space for speculations. Who knows, maybe they will call it FPS?
What’s the story behind the game?
It looks like Gearbox is planning to keep the same characters and design for future Borderlands versions. However, in case it’s him, the psycho bandit needs a new scenario, so now the developers want to hire a new writer who can create an emerging, but at the same funny script.
Will there be new characters and different gameplay features?
Unfortunately, we cannot predict anything concerning the possible characters, but we could have the possibility to meet a grown-up figure of Tiny Tina. However, we do know that Rhys and Fiona are two characters which need to make their debut in the Borderland series, so they could be included in the story.
Other news are connected with the potential visual upgrade. According to GDC 2017, we know that we should expect a boost for lighting tech, shadows and outlining the edge. Of course, Borderlands’ comic-book art style won’t be left aside, so we will see it in the 3rd version of the game as well.
Is there an estimated release date?
With all the information we found out, we still don’t have any clue regarding the Borderlands 3 release date. If we were to anticipate, we could say that we might see the game for the first time in the period between October 2018 and September 2019.
