Borderlands 3's explosive launch trailer promises to bring some mayhem

What you need to know

  • Borderlands 3 just received a new launch trailer.
  • It doesn't really show us anything new, but more of the same from Borderlands is always welcome.
  • The game releases on September 13th.

After a seven year wait (let's not count The Pre-Sequel) we're finally getting a new Borderlands game this week. It's been a long time coming and like its previous trailers, Borderlands 3 promises to bring the mayhem in its launch trailer, packed with tons of explosions and some of our favorite characters.

There's nothing really new in this trailer, per say. We've all seen the action and gunplay we can come to expect from Borderlands 3 at this point. Borderlands 3 takes players from the dusty planet of Pandora on a trip across the galaxy to new planets with their own unique threats. So gear up and get ready for action.

Players can start pre-loading Borderlands 3 up to 48 hours before its digitally release. Gearbox has released a timezone map showing when the game unlocks across regions on console and PC.
