As we expected, Gearbox's time on stage at PAX East 2019 brought us the official and quite bling-themed confirmation of Borderlands 3, even though the team seemed to be suffering from serious technical issues with the provided laptop.

In spite of the stuttering laptop though, Gearbox delivered, although they didn't provide all the details. For now, they said they'll have more to share on April 3, as hinted by the "

They did say that the game's been in development for a while now so we're guessing the wait won't be too long. Or at least hoping it won't.

Gearbox reminded that we'll be seeing familiar faces, such as Tiny Tina, who is a bit older now, Vaughn from Tales from the Borderlands, Aurelia from The Pre-Sequel, Cultists and so on.

As you can see, there are four brand new Vault Hunters, one of them being the Siren with six gigantic arms. You can check her out around the 0:50 mark and it turns out she was indeed hinted at by the Morse code in the teaser trailer, which said "Count the Sirens". 

Apparently, most of the guns from the teaser trailer are in actually featured in Borderlands 3, but that's still only scratching the surface of what sort of firepower dev had in mind.

As the trailer eventually points out, Gearbox crammed in more than a billion guns in there, so boomsticks definitely won't be lacking.

Note that the teaser trailer also featured a bunch of codes that you can use in Borderlands 2 to get some entitlements. We guess a warmup for the 3 won't hurt anyway.

Along with the announcement of Borderlands 3, Gearbox announced the remastered version of Borderlands, which is coming in all its 4K upres glory and all the DLC packs, meaning The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.
