Signs throughout the trailer beckon travelers to "meet Calypso" and "answer Calypso's call".
Borderlands 3 is bigger and better than any other game in the series. For those that know their greek mythology, Calypso is the daughter of the titan, Atlas.
While we wait for more info, be sure to check out all the info on Borderlands Game of the Year Edition's imminent release, our feature on six features we'd like to see in Borderlands 3, and be sure to stay tuned to IGN for more on Borderlands 3.
No release date was announced, but the game should launch sometime in 2019. While it doesn't seem like Lilith will be playable, she will no doubt play a huge part in the events of Borderlands 3. As of yet, it's unclear what classes they correspond to. They're also bringing over the Golden Key system from the later games, letting you trade in these special promo keys for a roll of the dice and a chance at some rare gear. Instead, it's a showcase for the lunacy that the audience has come to expect, from the promise of "one billion" guns (one of them even has honest-to-God little legs), to an array of Lovecraftian, technicolour beasties; to a cast of characters that look like they fell into a Value-Added Tax of toxic Dangerfield branding.
If you own the original Borderlands on Steam, you'll be able to get all the new remaster content for free. The game also has a film adaptation in the worlds by Lionsgate.
2017 gave us our first taste of what Borderlands 3 would look like thanks to a GDC 2017 demo showcasing a Borderlands world. This time around Gearbox is claiming that Borderlands 3 will have "one billion guns", one of which is an assault rifle with little robot legs that is skipping along while firing of shots. Maya, Borderlands 2's resident Siren, also makes an appearance alongside an unknown blue-haired child that I'm hoping is at least as kooky as Tiny Tina.
