We now know when Borderlands 3 is going to launch. Gearbox unveiled this September 13th as the release date. Multiple special editions of the game have also been announced with the most deluxe going for a whopping $249.
We reported recently about suspicious remarks from Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford with regards to a possible timed-exclusivity for Borderlands 3 on the Epic Games Store. It didn’t take long for an official confirmation that the game will indeed be available for six months only on the Epic Games Store on PC.
A lot more info was shared today however. First of all we get to learn more about the new four playable characters. Here they are.
- Moze as the Gunner: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech–Iron Bear–for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
- Amara as the Siren: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
- FL4K as the Beastmaster: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.
- Zane as the Operative: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.
