For all the ruckus it caused, Gearbox's switch to Epic doesn't seem to have quelled the excitement one bit, so it's time for more Borderlands 3. The dev now rolled out a trailer called The Story So Far, and it does exactly what it says.
And that's getting you up to speed with Borderlands 3 ahead of the upcoming gameplay reveal, which is scheduled for 01 May 2019, at 10am PDT / 6pm BST.
The reveal will feature members of the development team discussing "everything from the new Vault Hunters and their respective skills to interplanetary travel and sweet, sweet loot."
Other than having this trailer on repeat, you could try and pass the time until the gameplay reveal by looking for Gearbox's codes, which they left all over the recently teased image.
According to the dev, there are plenty of Borderlands 3 clues still to be found, and you can find a high resolution version of the image on the official Borderlands 3 website, here , if you fancy a crack.
Of course, as fun as the decoding of Gearbox's codes is, we're more anxious to see Borderlands 3 in action, something the dev is well aware of.
"Despite some incredible internet sleuthing, countless questions raised by you, the amazing Borderlands community, remain unanswered. When will we learn more about the four new Vault Hunters? Who exactly are the Calypso Twins? Who's the young girl bumping fists with Maya? And how the heck do guns grow legs?!", they wrote.
Borderlands 3's art director Scott Kester recently confirmed that the game will be switching to the discrete loot system, i.e. each player receiving his own, although you can choose to go the old school route, should you suddenly feel nostalgic for the thieving ways of old.
Gearbox's CEO Randy Pitchford has recently supported the decision to make Borderlands 3 a timed Epic Games Store exclusive, claiming that Steam may perish if they don't change with the times.
Developed by Gearbox and published by 2K Games, Borderlands 3 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Epic Games Store on 13 September 2019.
