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

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.

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.
