With a simple piece of art showcasing what looks like, err, some post-apocalyptic font action. With the date for the upcoming PAX East convention in the United States - March 28. Now, we've long been expecting a Borderlands 3 reveal from Gearbox - so much so that we would have put money on the game showing up at E3 last year.
So this can only mean just that. The long-awaited Borderlands 3 announcement.
Fun fact, Borderlands 2 is still one of the best selling and most popular games of all time. And for 2K and Take-Two a franchise that carries as much weight as other heavy hitters like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. Another fun fact, the first game was the first major AAA-style release to breakthrough that blended first-person shooting with action-RPG loot and leveling ala Diablo. Since that time the rise of the shared-world loot shooter has become a major trend, with the likes of Anthem and The Division 2 this year alone.
So, we'll be watching to see if it follows in the footsteps of its co-op past - or brings the series into the realm of the online world. Whatever the case is, Borderlands so far has been a series that has gotten better and better - and has always managed to nail the loot and skill-based class combat and shooting combo every time.
