Borderlands 3 gets exhilarating footage, features even stranger weapons

What you need to know

  • Borderlands 3 is an open-world shooter expected to launch in September.
  • The game features hilarious characters like Claptrap.
  • Today, developer Gearbox Software revealed new gameplay footage and trailers.
  • Borderlands 3 is available for $60 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Today, Gearbox Software lifted the embargo for Borderlands 3 gameplay and our very own Carli Velocci was able to get hands-on with the game. That's not all though. The company also released some new footage from the title as well as a bizarre trailer.

There's a lot to love about the game. Not only does it feature larger environments, but the Vault Hunter and weapon variety are out of this world. Hopefully, the story will be just as engaging as past titles because that's the most important factor. You can watch Carli's preview below with exclusive gameplay footage. She was able to play the game on PC.

Borderlands 3 runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X, but the team also wants to give gamers the option to play it at 60 frames per second (FPS). It's unclear what the resolution will be for the performance mode, but playing at a higher frame rate should make the shooting feel incredible. Unfortunately, the base console is locked at 30 FPS.
