Today, 2K Games and Gearbox Software lifted the curtain on showing gameplay for Borderlands 3, giving a first look at combat in the latest 'shooter-looter'. Both a trailer and a recording of a livestream aired today show what you can expect when the game launches later this year.
Regarding in-game purchases, Randy Pitchford had this to say:
"We're going to do some kick-ass campaign DLC, and I'm sure we're going to do all kinds of fun customisations like heads and skins. But, we're not doing any of that free-to-play junk. There's not going to be any microtransactions. There's not going to be any of that nonsense. And if you've played a Borderlands game before, we expect you to feel right at home."
To note, Game Informer has clarified in an interview with Gearbox's Paul Sage that there will be some cosmetic items available as additional purchases.
Find the trailer and livestream footage below. You can find announcement information, pre-order details, and screenshots here. Borderlands 3 is set to release on September 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store
