Perfect for newbies to the series.
We’re just one month away from the highly-anticipated release of Borderlands 3 and it shows, as Gearbox Software ramps up the hype and start revealing more and more of the game. The upcoming is set to introduce four new playable Vault Hunters, each with their own unique abilities and backstories.
Their backstories are explored in the four character trailers released so far, the most recent of which features the Vault Hunter named FL4K. Check out the four Vault Hunters and their introduction trailers below to get yourself acquainted before the game comes out.
FL4K is an emergent AI whose three loyal pet companions help them track and claim their quarry on a never-ending hunt across the galaxy. His trailer oozes badassery as he shows off his superior hunting skills with the help of his three loyal beasts; the Spiderant Centurion, the Guard Skag and the Jabber Sidekick.
Amara is a powerful brawler, renowned champion of the people, and bonafide Siren badass. She used her supernatural Siren abilities to crush her enemies with astral projections by pounding them into a bloody pulp with fists formed from pure energy.
Moze is a battle-hardened soldier who ditched the Vladof army along with her BFF, a giant Iron Bear Mech. Her 15-ton bipedal mech companion packs some heavy-duty firepower, with skills that are actually weapons mounted onto each of its mechanical arms.
Zane is a semi-retired corporate hitman with decades of espionage under his belt and plenty of gadgets up his sleeve. As a tech expert, he has an ingenious gadget at the ready for any life-or-death situation, including the ability to equip two skills at once, though choosing to do so will replace his ability to toss grenades.
Which One’s My Favourite?
As someone who’s never played any of the Borderlands games, my personal favourite character trailer has to be Amara’s. She gives off the vibe of a celebrity superhero, and her powers remind me of Green Lantern. She would definitely be my choice for Vault Hunter.
Moze also seems like another Vault Hunter I would go for, owing to her mecha’s sheer firepower. I like to overwhelm my enemies in any game, and she would be the right choice for that particular playstyle of mine. Both FL4K and Zane are likely to be more technical characters in terms of skills.
Borderlands 3 is slated to release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 13 September 2019, along with a later unspecified release date on Google Stadia.
