Borderlands 3 shoots onto PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 13, and ahead of its release, the looter-shooter got a new rocking trailer showing the Vault Hunters jamming out to some Queen.
The new trailer shows the four Vault Hunters–Amara the Siren, FL4K the Beastmaster, Moze the Gunner, and Zane the Operative–wreaking havoc and causing mayhem as they attempt to thwart Troy and Tyreen Calypso’s evil plans. It’s a dazzling display of lights and explosions and chaos, all soundtracked to Queen’s “Seven Seas of Rhye” from the band’s 1973 debut album Queen and the 1974 follow-up Queen II.
The critics have spoken and we’ve compiled a roundup of Borderlands 3 reviews from various publications. In our Borderlands 3 review we said, “The game’s character-driven narrative acts as a satisfying finale for the loot-shooter franchise, and the new mechanics and features–especially the reworked skill trees and weapon manufacturer effects–give you plenty of agency in how you want to play through it. If you’ve never been a fan of the franchise, it’s unlikely Borderlands 3 does enough things differently to change your mind, as the game best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism.”
Borderlands 3 may be just on the horizon, but developer Gearbox already has plans for the game’s first wave of post-release content. These include a Halloween-themed limited-time event called Bloody Harvest, a much larger update called Maliwan Takedown, and the first of its major DLC expansions all launching before the end of 2019, with more content likely to come in 2020.
