Other than this there has been a lot of tweets from Randy Pitchford which indicates that the company is putting a lot of efforts in the upcoming Borderlands 3 game.
Borderlands 3 Release Date | Why It Is Taking So Long?
Speculating from the current trends we can see Borderlands 3 perhaps in the E3 of 2019 or sometime before that. However it can be released before that also, we can not be certain at this point.
Borderland series does not follow the convention of releasing games every couple of years. The company put a lot of efforts in development and it surely takes a long time. Borderlands 1 was released in 2009. It offered a unique mix of first-person shooting with the character building found in RPG games. The game also had a unique collection of guns and shooting style was also excellent. It takes place on a fictional planet called Pandora which is full of dangerous creatures. A giant corporation is on the planet in search of an ancient alien treasure.
Borderlands 2 was made available in 2012. The game continues the story from the previous version. It has interesting characters that make the game more interesting. The unique gameplay style continues in this version. It still has a huge fan following due to its versatility. The character building and use of various types of weapon system allow the user to play it many times.
As we see from the tweets of some officials that the Borderlands 3 is still in development stage. The company also demonstrated a new technology for game rendering previously. It indicates that the game will now have a considerable amount of improvements and changes.
Borderlands 3: Our Expectations
Character customization is an essential thing that makes the game more fun. Borderlands customization is not optimal when compared to other games. It allows you to customize the clothing and various other aesthetics features about the game but in the next version of the game options to customize your character in a much better way will be a better addition.
A new place other than Pandora will make the game a whole lot fresh if not completely new. New map with a different type of enemies to fight or kill will enhance the gameplay experience. We can totally expect a new environment other than the classic old Pandora Wastelands.
Characters are the most interesting part of Borderlands series. A deep storyline which has been set up quite perfectly is hard to find in any other game. Although the current characters are nothing to complain about, we want to see some more powerful vaulthunters in the upcoming Borderlands.
Many modern games have included user-generated content support in their game. It allows the players to add additional functionalities like new weapons, skins, etc. to the game. Borderlands 3, although a much popular game has not yet included mod support.
Better Loot System
Borderlands is a game about loot. You may say that it has a great story and shooting technique but you can not progress the game without gaining loot But most of the loot boxes are hard to kill and does not provide worth loot. A more worthy loot should be included on killing raid boxes.
Finally, we can say that at this point we can only speculate about the next Borderlands Game. We have covered what is currently available online and other news and rumors. There are some unique things like its characters and hundreds of guns that make the identity of this game. We can see more such unique things like this in the Borderlands 3.
Hopefully, we will not have to wait for the game and will see it soon. If you have any questions or queries let us know in the comments. For more news and updates about upcoming games stay connected to Technofizi.
