Borderlands 3

Gearbox’s Paul Sage, who’s the creative director on Borderlands 3, was present at the PC Gaming Show to talk more about the game. Sage answered a number of questions from fans, including whether you could pet your gun in the game. The response?  “I’m not here to judge what you do with the guns. That’s a personal question.”

Other questions included whether Maya’s new companion was a Siren (which wasn’t answered, but Sage said “People are asking the right questions.”). We also heard about the Guardian System for the first time, which seems to offer passive bonuses like Badass Ranks in Borderlands 2. The key difference here is that all of your characters can benefit from the system, thus making leveling that much easier.

The level cap at launch will be 50, and it was also confirmed that Golden Keys and SHIFT Codes are in the game. Tiny Tina will also battle alongside the Vault Hunters, and duels will be returning. Can we expect other forms of PvP? “Yes and no,” said Sage. An interesting set of answers indeed. Check out the Q&A below, courtesy of hosts of the show, PC Gamer.

Borderlands 3 is out on September 13th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can check out Borderlands 2’s newest DLC, Commander Lilith and The Fight for Sanctuary, to see how the second game ties into the third. It’s free now until July 9th.
