When in 2015, 2K Games announced that they were preparing the third series of this remarkable in all respects product of the crossing of Diabla and the classic shooter, everyone who played in the first two smiled knowingly.
After all, we were awaited by another trip in the scenery of the end of the world, proving that a sense of humor and craving for beauty should not be lost even in such frightening conditions.
After all, we are accustomed to what? The radiation ash rotates romantically in the air, everywhere there are ruins, the dim light of a star who is tired of us and, of course, all the gradations of gray are absolutely in everything.
A gray mob, a gray set, the whole of white light has become gray … Something like that. But, Borderlands, as it turned out, was completely unheard of this law of the post-apocalyptic setting. And he created his own. Awesome bright and perky.
General information about the game:
- Genre – Shooter / RPG
- Setting – Post Apocalypse / Fantasy
- Developer – Gearbox Software
- Publisher / Localizer – 2K Games
- Release Date – 2019
Well, it seems that the fans are still destined to wait for this wonderful event, and at least 2K and Gearbox have not yet spoken directly about the dates, there is every reason to believe that this will happen in 2019.
Gamers were very interested in a sensational interview with the head of Take-Two Interactive, the mothers of both companies involved in the franchise to the masses, in which he coquettishly hinted that the forces of these functionaries would continue one of their brightest TV shows.
Considering that simple logic leaves no room for the idea that it could be BioShock, since even ventricular defibrillation is not going to help this game now, the time of the fourth Mafia simply did not come (not everyone is awakened by the past disappointment), but However, we all know that Gearbox has been plowing for the third year without raising its head.
And clearly not over their strategic series such as Civilization or XCOM, since they are completely incapable of filling up the companies’ accounts to the desired mark.
Consequently, there is only one option, and now it is worth doing the most beloved of all gamers: collect all the information about the project under preparation and build on it from all this predictions.
The main characters will remain the same well known to us as the Seekers of the Warehouse, although it is unknown whether they will still be four, as in the original second part, or their list will be expanded to six – as in the supplement.
What follows logically from the end of the previous series, at the end of which we were confronted with the fact that there are still full Stores in the galaxy, the protagonists will head to one of them, simultaneously facing powerful opposition from the Hyperionic forces and psychos.
Whether Lilith will be shown here as a new Angel, and what its significance will be in the further narrative (if this is true at all) is still unknown. As well, all the other details of the plot are still a mystery, because the developers are threatening to tell about them no earlier than six months before the official release.
And of course, I want to believe that the story told by Mike Newmann, the creative director of Gearbox, will be no less exciting and fun than the one that Anthony Burch worked on – the permanent scriptwriter of the first two parts and many other well-known studio projects.
So, as a game card, we will be offered the development of a new world, and, moreover, it will consist of one planet or several, until it is specified.
Let’s hope that we are waiting for the same action blockbuster with a variety of setting locations, developed transport scheme, a worthy choice of opponents and reliable allies.
It is expected that there will be all the same first-person view and access to the network mode, which makes the gameplay not just driving – unpredictable.
But it is not yet clear how the story will develop with the branches of talent, what will happen to the specialization, and whether more diversity will be introduced in relation to class division and its features.
What is a clear certainty is that the environment will be equally wonderful interactive, and the teamwork of opponents and other abilities to adapt to the current changes in the AI game, as always, will suffer from excessive complementarity.
Rumors about the diversity of equipment in the new part of Borderlands are confirmed by the fact that Ilona Mask, a safe flamethrower, will add to this game in 2019, as a matter of fact, between SpaceX and Gearbox Software heads. official correspondence was maintained.
The technical demo has already seen the light, so you can make, albeit a preliminary, but quite an exhaustive opinion about the level of graphics and upcoming chips.
In the teaser of the developers it is directly said that the Unreal Engine 4 will be used, and they will retain all that authentic, easily recognizable style of comic-like drawing, although they will add much more detail and realism to the volume.
Cross-platform for the new series of the title, of course, promise, but from the list of consoles expectedly removed going through now is not the best of times Nintendo.
As for the principle of monetization, it seems, between Take-Two and Gearbox, the final consensus has not been reached: the first for all their projects they are not going to abandon the policy of microtransactions, while Randy Pitchford categorically stands for free of any game items, preferring to receive income exclusively from the DLC.
In general, the work on Borderlands 3 is now in full swing: according to the assurances of the TM owners, up to 90% of the entire personnel and facilities of the studio are now employed in it.
