Gearbox Software has released two installments of Borderlands gaming series. First one was launched in October 2009 named Borderlands and the second version was released in September 2012 named Borderlands 2.
Both versions of the games were declared as hit among the gaming fans as it managed to gain commercial and critical acclaim. After successful release of both series it is now confirmed that the Borderlands 3 is in development. Before discussing about Borderlands 3, let’s have a quick look on the past releases from this series.
It was released in 2009 on various gaming platforms such as PS3, Xbox 360. Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It was a major hit in the market as it sold over 2 million copies by the end of 2009.

After enjoying good amount of worthy success, it has been almost five years since we have not heard anything about the latest installment of Borderlands. Back in May, developer Gearbox Software released Battleborn, which was met with mixed reviews. Now, it’s being reported by several reports that developers are working on the release of Borderlands 3.
Well it is going to be interesting to watch how Gearbox Software is going to manage the things in Borderlands 3. It is because it has been over 5 years since last version of this game was arrived and since than a lot has changed.
Borderlands 3 is going to be a big project for Gearbox Software and we have manage to bring a list of 5 things we are expecting in Borderlands 3.
1- Open world Environment
It is not official but we can expect that we are going to have an open world environment in Borderlands 3. Borderlands series has always appreciated by the critics in terms of gaming environment and we are hoping for much better in Borderlands 3.
2- New Plot
Well, I cannot guarantee you about it but I think we are going to get some change in terms of storyline, however possibilities of new angles in the same storyline could also take place. Borderlands generally feature storyline that are correlated to each other and this is why expectations regarding having a fresh plot is blur however, it is reported that Borderlands 3 will set on Promethea, an alien planet. More details are yet to come.
3- Better Gameplay
As I said, a lot has changed since the last time Borderlands was released. It Is expected that we are going to get some changed in the changes in the gameplay for Borderlands 3. However, we don’t expect big changes in the gameplay as it was appreciated by the gamers as well as critics but few changes are coming for sure.
4- Advance weapons
Well that’s obvious that it has been over five years and now more advance weapons has hit the gaming world. It is quite expected that we are going to have a bunch of better, advance and brutal weapons in Borderlands 3.
5- New Characters
It will be very interesting to know that what characters will be featured in Borderlands 3, well, that has yet to be revealed. Of course, the series’ main villain ‘Handsome Jack’ was killed at the end of Borderlands 2. He was brought back in Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands, but he was killed off in the final episode of that series as well.
It is believed that Rhys, Fiona, Sasha, and even August could possibly be the game’s main character
Well, all these things I have mentioned are pure anticipation, nothing has been confirmed by the Gearbox Software about Borderlands 3,
Borderlands 3 Release Date
As of now we don’t have any official word on the release of Borderlands 3 but we are expecting to see Borderlands 3 in 2018.
