At the 2017 Game Developers Conference, which is currently taking place in San Francisco, Gearbox Software was on hand to give Borderlands fans a little treat: a very early look at Borderlands 3.
Now, it has to be stressed that this is not a look at the actual game. It’s a tech demo showing off some of the things Gearbox is working on in with Unreal Engine 4, which may or may not make it into future game projects. The demo is, however, clearly Borderlands related. So it’s hard not to assume this is at least a tiny, very early peek at how Borderlands 3 is starting to take shape.
2K and Gearbox Software have released a trailer for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, the remastered re-release of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on next-gen (now current-gen) consoles.
The collection comes with all of the DLC that’s been released for the games, and will be released on March 24, 2015. You can read more about The Handsome Collection and watch the trailer below.
Now that The Walking Dead video game’s second season and the debut season of The Wolf Among Us have wrapped up, it’s time for Telltale Games’ next pair of games to take over.
Their episodic entry into Gearbox Software’s hugely popular Borderlands franchise, titled Tales from the Borderlands, is on the way, and also the highly anticipated six-part first season of Telltale’s take on Game of Thrones is set to premiere later this year.
A new trailer for Tales from the Borderlands has been released online, and can be seen below.
For the many fans eagerly hoping for the announcement of Borderlands 3, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. A new game in the series has been announced, but it is both a prequel and a sequel fittingly titled Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!
The game is set after the events of Borderlands and prior to the events of Borderlands 2 in what sounds like a project that began as DLC and evolved into a full standalone game. Because of this, it will run on the same engine as the last game and will only be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC—not on Xbox One or PS4.
Continue below to see a video of the game being announced, complete with details on the story, the characters you can play as (including Claptrap), and some peeks at gameplay, as well as some screenshots.
