Borderlands 3 has had people excited since it first got revealed earlier this month. It’s a game that fans have been wanting for literally years, and it’s finally right around the corner.
Developer Gearbox has been pretty sneaky about its clues, cryptic hints and teases about the game so far, ranging from concealed Morse code to more overt references and nods, but it looks like we’ve now got something concrete about the game on our hands.
Gearbox and Borderlands 3‘s Senior Sound Developer, Joshua Davidson, recently sounded off (lol, sorry) on Twitter, comparing the sound file size of B3 to that of B2, and yeah…there’s a HUGE difference.
Davidson wrote: “#Borderlands3 is currently sitting at just over 7,500 individual .wav files for the weapon firing sounds. For perspective, BL2 shipped a little over 300 .wav files to cover all the guns and their manufacturers. And yes, we’re still not done. Pew pew! #GameAudio”
From the sounds of things (literally) it looks like Borderlands 3 might be Gearbox’s most ambitious project yet. If this is what the sound files are looking like, we can’t wait to see just how darn big the map, the story and everything else is going to be!
Borderlands 3 will be showing off the first look at its gameplay in just a couple of days’ time on May 1.
The unveiling will also feature “commentary from the Gearbox development team on everything from the new Vault Hunters and their respective skills to interplanetary travel and sweet, sweet loot.”
After the stream “literally hundreds” of livestreamers will take to their channels to showcase Borderlands 3 and give their first impressions of the game.
Borderlands 3 arrives on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on September 13, 2019. The title will be an Epic Store exclusive for a limited time, before it’ll be available on Steam.
