Borderlands 3 is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on Sept. 13, developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K announced on Wednesday. The PC version of Borderlands 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store until April 2020.
A new trailer for Borderlands 3 highlighted the four new playable Vault Hunters and the evil duo they’ll go up against, the Calypso Twins. More details about the game are promised on May 1, when Gearbox will hold a gameplay reveal event livestream.
Gearbox also offered new details on the quartet of all-new Vault Hunters coming to Borderlands 3. Here are their official descriptions:
- Moze as The Gunner: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech – Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
- Amara as The Siren: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
- FL4K as The Beastmaster: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.
- Zane as The Operative: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.
Gearbox also teased “new worlds beyond Pandora” where players can loot for the series’ trademark “bazillions of guns,” including firearms with self-propelling bullet shields, rifles that spawn volcanoes, and guns that grow legs, hunt down targets, and verbally insult them.
A new leveling syncing system will also make playing cooperatively with friends regardless of your story of experience progression, according to a fact sheet.
