Borderlands 3 - Let's Make Some Mayhem Official Launch Trailer


The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure. Blast your way through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, collect loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.

Key Features

• Lock, Load and Loot - With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.

Getting mostly good reviews. More of the same and slightly prettier. I’m still trying to complete the free Borderlands 2 expansion they released but it reminds me how burned out I am with this playstyle. 15 minutes of classic Doom mods and Quake 1 just leaves me more satisfied. I’m over the grinding, bullet sponge badguys, and sifting through thousands of guns before you have a solid collection.

BL3 made me cross the line and finally get a EPIC account. Preloaded and waiting for release.

I'm not one for making political statements with a game - and I wont with this one. That being said, I cannot support Randy Pitchford and his idiocy, so unfortunately I'll be passing on this game until it comes out for some ridiculously cheap price or PS Plus gives it as a free game.

I've got a friend begging me to play it with her, but I really dont want to give money to Randy Pitchford. A guy in my FC in FF14 got all over me about that stance - basically saying that its just not Randy, but the other developers and employees there. My only reply to that is that if the stories are to be believed, he took that money from them anyway, so a huge chunk of that is/was going to Randy.

So no thanks. Shooting stuff until it dies is fun, but not enough for me to pay for it. I just pay 15 dollars per month to slash at something until it does, much better!

I almost purchased it too this morning and then just decided to do the same, play something else until I can get it for a huge discount.

Good plan not to buy this one, I'm reading that it's buggy as all hell with connection problems and massive framerate issues.

Hard pass until the game and all the dlcs are 25 bucks after the inevitable move to steam.

Passing as well. Not only because the stink of Randy Pitchford but because they apparently use some DRM on the PC version which is awful and chews up your bandwidth.

There are many bugs according to the user reviews. Poor performance is another common complaint, even on rigs that should have huge performance numbers.

All in all, it sounds like a good one to pass on till a GOTY, at best.

Yeah, I’m reading they at least fucked the PC release. Top of the line rigs can’t even maintain 60fps and the graphics aren’t pushing any boundaries. Sounds like they skipped out on optimization and rushed release.
