Borderlands fans across the world were more than a little excited when Borderlands 3 was finally announced after years of wishing thinking.
Though the game has yet to hit store shelves it’s already looking set to be a firm favourite video game of 2019 for a lot of people, proving there’s life in the ol’ dog yet for Borderlands.
Thankfully, Borderlands 3 won’t be the last we see of the longstanding franchise – at least not according to the series’ main writers, Danny Homan and Sam Winkler.
Speaking with DualShockers, Homan and Winkler explained just how Borderlands 3 will tie in with the rest of the series, as well as the future of the franchise.
According to Winkler, Borderlands 3 is “definitely a successor to all the games” and will “tie off some threads” but don’t expect this to be the final chapter.
Winkler added that thanks to new fragments of story sprinkled throughout the upcoming title, it “definitely isn’t the end of Borderlands in any way.”
Homan added there’s “always room for more story in Borderlands,” and coyly teased that the the new game leaves enough unsolved for future games to pick up.
In other Borderlands news, it’s been confirmed that Borderlands 3 has officially already gone gold.
Sharing the news on Twitter, the official account for developer Gearbox wrote: “We are pleased to announce that #Borderlands3 has gone GOLD! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen! We’ll see you September 13th Vault Hunters!”
Now that the game is officially complete and ready to go, its release is looking more exciting than ever.
Borderlands 3 promises “bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure,” as you play as one of four brand-new Vault Hunters.
This time around you’ll be taking on the Calypso Twins, and you’ll be able to travel to new realms outside of Pandora as you go on your lootin’ and shootin’ quests.
Borderlands 3 will support online play as well as split-screen co-op “regardless of your level or mission progress,” but enjoy your own rewards without having to share the winnings.
