Borderlands 3, is the third entry in the four-player role-playing looter shooter game franchise. Even though Borderlands 3 has been announced recently, there was no secret among the fans that a sequel to Borderlands 2 is in works.
Let’s take a look at the rumors and information available about the next title.
Borderlands 3: Plotline
According to trailers, the antagonists of the next Borderlands are Calypso Twins. Calypso Twins hold powers similar to Siren. However, according to the game lore, Siren cannot be male which is interesting because the dark-haired twin is Troy. The female’s name is Tyreen.
According to the theories floating around on the web, the plotline is possibly about the twins stealing powers from the Siren.
Borderlands 3: Characters
Many gamers were quick to identify their favourite characters from the Mask of Mayhem and trailer. The list of the known characters from previous games is:
- Tiny Tina
Borderland 3 will also bring four new vault hunters which are Amara, Zane, Fl4k, and Moze. Even though the teaser trailer featured Handsome Jack, it is still possible that he is still dead.
- Amara is the new Siren and has abilities to do a melee attack with 6 arms.
- Zane is the wealthy operative and can create a decoy like Zero from Borderlands.
- Fl4k is the robotics expert and has 3 pets.
- Moze is a soldier and can summon a giant mech. Other players can also jump on it and use the giant gun on top of the mech.
Borderlands 3 will feature the co-op mode with the split screen. The co-op mode is also available online.
According to the reports, this game can feature multiple planets with different physics.
Borderlands 3 and Epic Game Store
Many publishers have been ditching the Valve’s Steam in favour of Epic Store and Borderlands 3 is following suit.
Borderlands 3 will be launched exclusively on Epic Store by 2020. However, some gamers are threatening to pirate the game if developers don’t change their decision.
