Borderlands 3 gameplay leaks ahead of May 1 worldwide reveal

It appears that someone has leaked Borderlands 3 gameplay footage ahead of tomorrow's event in LA.


The Borderlands 3 hype train does not know how to slow down, and a gameplay leak has fans even more excited today. The folks at Gearbox Software planned to reveal gameplay to the world during a special live stream presentation on May 1, but it appears someone had other plans and posted some footage to streamable. Please take a look.

Fans have been steadily getting more and more hype about the Borderlands 3 fall release date. Randy Pitchford took the stage at PAX East 2019 to do some magic tricks and eventually unveil the game everyone knew they were working on. Gearbox caught some grief from fans last year when the game missed E3 2018, but it seems like 2K is ready to make a space at this year's convention.

Borderlands 3 has had some fans review bombing the series on Steam due to its exclusive PC release on the Epic Games Store. Gearbox Grand Poobah Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to explain that the decision was made by 2K and out of his hands. He also laid out a number of reasons why Epic Games Store was the right choice for the game's PC launch. It's unfortunate to see one of the most anticipated titles of 2019 to be stuck in the middle of the PC launcher war, but situations like this are likely to persist until a ceasefire occurs. 

Are you still excited for this week's reveal of more Borderlands 3 gameplay or has the Epic Games Store timed exclusivity soured you on buying the game at launch? Let us know in the comments section and be sure to tune in on May 1 to see more than just a short streamable clip. Borderlands 3 is set to release on September 13, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

        It is not surprising, the franchise has an already established gaming formula.

          This. And we know what people are looking for, judging by the general response in the improvements from B1 to B2, and B2 to B:-1

          The Blands core loop is what draws people to the game, but you have to make significant advances in the details of the core loop to make them keep playing.

          B1 to B2 added tons of new gun perks and effects, made skill trees more insane with lots of potential synergies, and increased the variety of enemies.
          B2 to B:-1 didn't really expand out the number of gun perks, and while they were different enemies it felt like the same B2 enemies but ON THE MOOON.

          B2 to B3 does already look to be a more interesting transition with the gun perks they have teased, as well as various QOL features that help inventory management problems from B2. But its still going to be a loot-driven FPS/RPG hybrid.

            the Dahl grinder was a pretty great feature, I'm wondering if they will have something like that. meta-hilarity as well, given you are grinding for the legendary guns, the grinder lol

              Yeah, that's one of the few features I would take from B:-1 into B3, as it fits well in the loot shooter concept.
