Borderlands 3 Interview: We Had to Bring Our 'A' Game For the Moment-to-Moment Weapon Handling

Richard Walker

It's been repeated ad infinitum that Borderlands hasn't had a mainline entry in seven years, so clearly, expectations are high for Borderlands 3. And as the game counts down to its September launch, we sat down with Gearbox to talk about the series' long-awaited comeback.

Chatting with Borderlands' Managing Producer of Development Chris Brock, we asked all manner of questions about the game's guns, locations new and old, the inception of Borderlands 3's new cast of Vault Hunters, how Gearbox's work on Battleborn influenced the new game, and more besides.

There's details on how 4-player duelling will work, quality-of-life improvements Gearbox made for the game, how modernised movement mechanics changed everything, and a bunch of other stuff. You can find out loads more about Borderlands 3 in our interview video below.

Borderlands 3 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 13th September 2019. Check out our latest gameplay footage here.

  • This game looks and sounds great. I am going to play and max all 4 vault hunters plus the dlc ones. Well i hope their are 2 more. But the series is a blast solo or coop.
  • @1: They've already confirmed there won't be any DLC Vault Hunters this time.
  • I know they said that but i do remenber gearbox saying a few things about their games that turned out not to be accurate later on. Nothing bad hust saying things change sometimes
  • The Season Pass price has just leaked and it's uber expensive at $50/£40 :(:
  • Good thing I bought ultimate edition then.
  • Well, when I think about it, it doesn't sound suprising? Considering that last dlc (lilith and the fight for sanctuary) costs now 15$ (and btw it's nor really worth it). And there will be 4 dlc
  • Had to being the A game. ROFL what could you bring since all other games gearbox are absolute trash. You might as well name gearbox borderlands instead
  • I Have just one QUESTION ... Where this Free DLC we were supise to be getting for the Borderlands VR game ?....They stated in Summer2019..... Well summer has Literally just a few more weeks the for temperature start to change.
