Borderlands 3 Gameplay Reveal

Gearbox unveils first exclusive look at Borderlands 3 gameplay with a live demo in a recent live-stream event.

It took seven years for developer Gearbox Software to team-up with publisher 2K Games to bring back their immensely popular looter shooter franchise of Borderlands by announcing Borderlands 3 back in March at PAX East 2019.

We already saw a teaser and a trailer by now, readying ourselves for a worldwide gameplay reveal offering a detailed look and it came in a long streaming event over Twitch and YouTube as CEO Randy Pitchford of Gearbox went full hands-on mode.

After taking over half an hour full of screenshots of in-game landscapes and other aspects, actual stream starts around 23:46 with a pre-show with Andrea Rene, Fran Mirabella and Greg Miller of Kinda Funny games before live demo presentation.

Borderlands have stuck within scorched planet Pandora for past two games and now they go beyond with Promethea and many different rocks. Although it will begin from the same planet but Vault Hunters will soon be heading for newer locations.

According to Creative Director Paul Sage, single-player campaign for the game would roughly take an estimated 30 hours of looting and shooting. Player starts an adventure after choosing one of the four new characters with unique skill sets and abilities.

Lilith, a "Siren" character from 2009 original game returns to enlist players to hunt down a cult called Children of the Vault. She tasks you to collect a map containing secret vault locations around galaxy from CoV to thwart their recruitment process.

Stepping into the boots of new character Amara, players are greeted by Claptrap on Meridian and starts exploring to find Atlas organization. Opening moments will get you up to speed with some basic gameplay mechanics of FPS.

Even though some core dynamics has changed, focus on shooting stuff is widened with inclusion of wide array of weapons. They vary in effects and use depending on their manufacturer company but sometime it can be hard to keep track of.

Not only this title is much longer in comparison to past Borderlands games, there are more boss fights for players to encounter. This will be a good routine to keep their skills growing and reward them by showering with loots.

There is a vending machine inside your home base Sanctuary III where every loot you ever missed during your playthrough is stored in one place. Art department of the game has done a very fine job in creating various arenas and levels.

Finally, an official trailer is dropped to cram down everything that has already been discussed in a brief showcase.

A short glimpse Troy and Tyreen Calypso of infamous Calypso Twins is also given at one point of the stream but we will probably get more on them later. Maybe, in a story trailer will give them a proper introduction with fitting a back-story in future.

Action role-playing first-person shooter Borderlands 3 will see worldwide release on September 13, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Hopefully, developer Gearbox would make a show at E3 2019 to reveal more info on this long-awaited game.

After unexpected review bombing earlier, Borderlands 2 suddenly becomes one of most played games on Steam.

When developer Gearbox Software launched popular looter shooter title Borderlands 2 back in 2012, it became very popular among players and sold over 13 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most successful game from publisher 2K Games.

Despite the game getting review bombed at the platform after an unpleasant discovery of it being an exclusive to Epic Games Store, players are taking their interest on the title again by giving it a massive boost on Steam charts.

At March 31, number of concurrent players started to rise above an average flow and by April 8, it quickly became one of the top 5 most played games on the platform when those numbers were pumped up to 59K and more.

Borderlands 2 were an all-time high with a simultaneous number of 123,596 players back in September 2012 and this recent climb is nearly half of that. Aside from in anticipation of upcoming sequel, there are other potential reasons for this rise.

The game is now on sale at 75% discount on store and recent arrival of The Handsome Collection with remastered graphics were offered for free who already owned it and these factors surely contributed to spike some interest.

Besides, many players were just getting prepped up to get back to the series that is back after seven years and perhaps they want to show Gearbox that they are more than happy to wait until 2020 until exclusivity of Epic Store expires.

Whatever the real reasons were behind this sudden growth, it still is amazing that fans showing love to beloved Borderlands action role-playing shooter franchise, so much so that they gave it an impressive 500% increase in average player count.

Fans of the series cheered in joy when Borderlands 3 was revealed at PAX East last month but a major fraction among them from PC platform were angry when it was revealed to be an Epic Games Store exclusive for first six months.

They didn't like it a bit and started review bombing Borderlands 2 on Steam and while Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford added more fuel to that rage machine; Steam actually took steps in retaining its former "Overwhelmingly Positive" score.

Players can join and team up in both local and online multiplayer game with fellow Vault Hunters despite having different levels or mission progress status. If you preferred classic co-op rules of Borderlands 2 better, that is also an option.

Like it was leaked though a series of now non-existing Tweets, the game indeed is launching on PC as a timed exclusive for Epic Games Store and will not be available on other digital outlets until April 2020, which irritates majority of players on PC platform.

Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

It was leaked via a series of official Tweets that Borderlands 3 would arrive on September 13 as an Epic Games Store exclusive.

Only days have passed since developer Gearbox Software announced their much anticipated action role-playing game Borderlands 3 in association with publisher 2K Games at PAX East 2019 followed by a "Mask of Mayhem" teaser earlier.

No select platform for this upcoming looter shooter has been confirmed yet and so is an official date of release but apparently PC version of the game is going to be an Epic Games Store exclusive, according to a now deleted official Tweet.

Among a series of Tweets from Borderlands official Twitter account was a release date of September 13 when they referenced the game as "Mayhem" just like many times they did before but ended up deleting it because it was way too early.

If that is true then previous theories of it coming on October 2019 is debunked and a brief clip that was posted in a follow-up Tweet also has hint at the title being heading towards Epic Games' digital distribution platform on launch as well.

Lucky for us, Twitter user Wario64 has pulled it out of internet archive and posted for everyone to take a look at.



RELATED: Killing Floor 2: Cyber Revolt Update Live Now

People initially thought of it as a sort of "April Fool" prank but then again, why would someone joke about a long-awaited game that is nothing but a jerk move unless it was not meant to come out right now and maybe on a later date?

There is a brief footage on the second deleted Tweet which has the Epic Games Store logo at bottom left beside 2K and Gearbox, which doesn't give away anything about its exclusivity essentially but surprisingly, we see no logo for Steam there.

RELATED: Wolfenstein: Youngblood Story Trailer

Whatever doubts anyone had on their minds regarding these sudden leaks are later addressed by Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and he gave us some pretty strong hints at where they are going in terms of distribution in a series of Tweets.

Pitchford directly said nothing about their stand on the situation of the game being a timed exclusive and neither denied nor confirmed anything officially.



RELATED: Metro Exodus Adds Game Plus Mode

Pitchford also pointed out that the upcoming FPS title would be a timed exclusive for at least six months on Epic. He also brought up their support for cross-platform play for PC and consoles but irritated fans are still vouching for releasing it to Steam.

Though he cleverly pointed everyone to 2K Games and Take-Two Interactive for further queries by stating they do not decide which partner or platform to choose when it comes to circulation, fans are yet not happy about moving over to Epic Games.

RELATED: Borderlands 2 VR Comes to PlayStation

Being an Epic Games Store exclusive is not actually a bad thing but considering their launcher having a series of issues including account security; Steam is a better choice for PC gamer base who does not like to shop on other platforms.

Besides, all of previous Borderlands games are still on Valve's distribution outlet and are quite popular on the platform. Therefore, making Borderlands 3 a high-profile exclusive to their rival store makes it somewhat awkward and very surprising move.

Whether or not they are all back in planet Pandora, there are giant robots and hideous mutant creatures wandering around desert wastelands cities, and swam areas to get shot. Two new villains are introduced as well without given any details on them.

Borderlands has a tradition of showering players with tons of loot mostly in forms of weapons and developers have included a ridiculous number of guns for the next chapter, which is more than one billion and some of them even have legs!

New BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

Many gamers would agree that BioShock from developer 2K Games was a very unique entry among all other first-person shooter game franchises. 2007 saw the debut of the first game, then BioShock 2 came in 2010 and BioShock Infinite released in 2013. So, it's been five years since the last game of the series was released but we bet many fans are more than ready for a new installment at any time. With that, we currently have news that a new BioShock title is currently in development.

New BioShock Game Reportedly in Development

All the titles from the original series took place into the underwater city of Rapture, which was meant to be a utopia for elites. People become addicted to a substance called ADAM that grants superhuman abilities but also slowly drives them insane. Little orphan girls called "Little Sisters" were used to harvest ADAM and they were protected by giant robot like sentries nicknamed "Big Daddies". Third game of the series, BioShock Infinite took the adventure to the vintage sky city of Columbia.

News editor Jason Schreier for video game website Kotaku was recently working on a story with developer Hangar 13 about Mafia III, when he came to know about this information. There is a secret neighboring studio Parkside, currently working on an unannounced project and it is a new BioShock game. Now, this has come to many fans as relief as many of them thought that their series has ended with the fall of developer Irrational Games.



Although CEO of Take-Two Interactive, Strauss Zelnick has assured in 2015 that it wouldn't mean the end for BioShock series and they will continue it in future, they have not done anything convincing till date to back that up. However, it looks like Take-Two is making good on their word by bringing a brand-new BioShock game teaming up with publisher 2K Games. Already sold more than 25 million units, this steampunk first-person shooter was also being considered for a movie adaptation but ultimately failed though.

Officially, 2K Games have yet to confirm the validity of this news and there has been no statement from their end yet. With the release of BioShock: The Collection featuring remastered edition of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the series made it's comeback in 2016 but that was it. There was no more news from them ever since and the entirety of this franchise are put into ice. If they are truly bringing back the series, then we would love to see them explore some new location for their fictional paradise this time.
