There wasn't much information given outside of what the trailer showed, but we can expect to hear more about the game on April 3. These include a Borderlands 2-style mini-map in addition to the game's original compass, inventory updates that allow players to lock and label weapons as junk, and auto-pick-ups of items from the ground.
Indeed, unlike other AAA franchises, Borderlands has never been about story, or even particularly innovative gameplay.More news: "A Lot of Death" Is Coming to Game of Thrones' Final Season
Beyond the characters, the highlight is obviously the news that Borderlands 3 won't be restricted to one planet. We, like many, believed that to be a Switch port of that title, but we were wrong.
While we've known for a while now that Borderlands 3 has been in development at Gearbox, the studio's PAX panel served as the backdrop for its official unveiling. Near the beginning of the trailer, we see Borderlands 1's Lillith, who is in the clutches of the Children of the Vault.or, even worse, working alongside them.
Gearbox has also teased a number of separate announcements for non-Borderlands releases, although some are clearly tongue-in-cheek. In the six years since, the only follow-up has been the mild Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (which wasn't developed by Gearbox, who made the first two Borderlands games) and the acclaimed Telltale Games Tales from the Borderlands. Sadly, Handsom Jack will not be coming back as Pitchford reiterated that he is dead.
