So this happened, and more info will be released at the PAX Livestream event tomorrow 3/28. In addition to that Gadgets 360 got a hold of some possible leaks which include details about the story and vault hunters. A couple of specifics that interest me, personally are the following:
- Flak the Beastmaster is a homeless-looking android. He can summon multiple creatures to help him fight: Ok so first I love summoner types in the Borderlands games. I tend to play Gaige in Borderlands 2 because of Deathbot, and the idea of being a poor homeless looking hobo robot who summons animal friends to fight just butters my biscuits right proper!
- There’s a black female Siren character. She’s melee oriented like Brick was. She will have several siren abilities like phase-lock, phase-shift, and a ground pound skill: Never been a fan of the siren playstyle in the previous games, too much like mages. The idea of a melee oriented Siren however is very interesting and I might have to give her a try.
- Tannis is not what she seems: NOOOOO REALLY? She was completely insane in the last game, I am pretty sure she will be a major bad figure in this one.
- You’ll start on Pandora but leave shortly into the game on Sanctuary 3, the Crimson Raider’s ship. It will be the hub for multiple planet locations: MULTIPLE PLANETS? WE MASS EFFECT NOW FOLX. Hopefully better then ME Andromedea thats for damn sure.
Overall I am really interested in this, and I am hopeful that the livestream tomorrow from PAX will provide many new details. This does make me want to start and finish my Gaige playthrough on BL2 finally as well. Perhaps I will get around to doing that at some point. A few things I am really hoping however is that its not a BR Game (supposedly Randy Pitchford confirmed it would not be in a podcast) and that it will not be a looter shooter in the style of Anthem / Division / Destiny. I want a single player / coop game like the first two games and the Presequel, not a live services style game at all.
