After many a tease and a leak, Gearbox Software is all set to reveal Borderlands 3 at PAX East. The company put out a Borderlands Mayhem trailer that featured character designs straight from the Borderlands 3 4chan leak that hit the Internet earlier this week. However the latest looter shooter in the series may not be the only announcement. Aside from a Borderlands 3 release date and gameplay, we may see previous entries hitting PS4, Xbox One, and perhaps Nintendo Switch. Here's everything we know right now.
The Borderlands 3 reveal begins at 11am PT on March 28 (11:30pm IST). It will be live streamed from the Gearbox panel at PAX East in Boston. It should last around one hour.
Borderlands 3 reveal - what to expect
Aside from a Borderlands 3 release date and gameplay, we won't be surprised to see Gearbox bring Borderlands 2 VR to PC and launch Borderlands Game of the Year Edition on current generation consoles seeing that it's been rated for release in countries like South Korea.
There are two places for you to check out all the action:
Is Borderlands 3 PC an Epic Games Store exclusive?
Borderlands fans came across a tweet from Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford that said he was "excited to support the Epic Games Store." Some of them felt this to be a hint that Borderlands 3 on PC would be exclusive to the Epic Games Store and asked Pitchford if this was the case. And his response raised more questions than answers.
"What's wrong with that? A PC is a PC - who cares which store you get your games from? I'm just curious to learn the mind-set. I am a customer on lots of different PC platforms," tweeted Pitchford.
It will be interesting to see what happens when the game is eventually announced. Epic Games has shown an appetite to snag big budget PC games such as Metro Exodus and The Division 2 away from Steam and while Borderlands 2 continues to be played by plenty on Steam, it would be a poor decision on Gearbox's part to make its sequel exclusive to any single PC game store. Safe to say it would be on both platforms.
