Borderlands 3 Preview

The newest installment in the thrilling looter-shooter

Borderlands 3 is one of the most anticipated games for 2019. Gamers have been waiting on the fourth installment of the series for quite some time. There has been a total of three Borderlands games within the series thus far. Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person looter-shooter. The original Borderlands game came out on Oct. 20, 2009. The second game came out three years later on Sep. 18, 2012. Both of these games were created by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. The third installment in the series came out on Oct. 14, 2014. This game is titled Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, meaning that it takes place after the first game but before the second game. This game was developed by 2K Australia and published by 2K Games.

The series as a whole has sold over 26 million copies. Borderlands previously won game of the year in 2009. All of these games have had lots of success and have built up a very compassionate community over the years. One of the series most unique components is its art style. The original game has hand-drawn textures which are later put into a computer to be colored and combined with software. This cartoonish and comic book like art style is the most recognizable aspect about the franchise and what fans cherish the most.

People within the gaming community have known for quite some time that Borderlands 3 was in the works. However, Gearbox has given few hints over the last couple of years to confirm work on the game. Slowly some leaks were released in 2018 about potential playable characters and where your adventure would be taking place. The hype continued into 2019 and fans were expecting a release date sometime soon. It has been almost seven years since the last Borderlands game was made by Gearbox. Finally, at Pax East, a popular video game convention, Gearbox released a game teaser for Borderlands 3. A few days later the game’s release date was announced for Sep. 13, 2019. Expect this game to be a top seller when it comes out later this year.
