So, I was lucky enough to NOT witness that disaster stream that was Gearbox’s event and had a clear and untainted first look at Borderlands 3 reveal trailer. Now, despite what Polygon might feel, this Borderlands 3 actually looks fun. And this is coming from someone who got bored of Borderlands 2 quite fast.
One of the gripes that I had with Borderlands 2 was exploring the wastelands that was the desert. It was cool in the first few hours but after a while I got bored. I don’t know what happened. Collecting all the many guns in the game and seeing what they can do was a blast and the story was interesting enough to keep me coming back, however, I think it was the desert scenery that ended up pushing me away from the game. The world just felt empty to me. That’s just my take on it. I know there were other places in the game but they felt far too in-between to remember.
Borderlands 3 actually looks interesting and fun, and the new characters look dope as well. Lets not forget that fan favorites like Lilith, Maya, Brick, Mordecai and Zer0 are returning too so that’s sure to make most people happy. There’s a clear upgrade in the visuals and we got new areas like that big neon city and the lush jungle to explore so that already caught my interest. So far I’m already liking what I’m seeing. I’ll be keeping my eye out for this game and hopefully they’ll address some of my concerns that I had with the previous titles.
