New Borderlands 3 Launch Trailer Is Ready For Mayhem

  • Written by Gamespot

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.
