Hold onto your badonkadonks: Borderlands 3 is finally official

Borderlands 3 has been in development at Gearbox Software for five years at two different studios. It has become the worst kept secret in the video game industry. Today, it finally gets its moment to shine and Gearbox gets to stop sidestepping the question everytime they’re asked about its existence. During the company’s hour-long PAX East panel, rife with excitement, good humour and technical hitches as it was, Gearbox finally got to raise the curtain on Borderlands 3 and deliver the goods.

The trailer’s almost got it all: Gearbox’s trademark snark. New heroes. Old favourites. New worlds. Co-operative play. “Over one billion guns.” A Brick sax solo.

Here, see for yourself:

Extremely good, we think you’ll agree.

Borderlands 3 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It currently has no release date at this stage, though Gearbox says they’ll have more to talk about on April 4. We’ll keep you posted.
