August 23, 2019


FAVORITE BORDERLANDS STREAMERS PLAYING THE GAME. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS BORDERLANDS 3. [ MUSIC ]>>GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE! APPOMATTOX WELCOME TO THE BORDERLANDS 3 GAMEPLAY REVEAL EVENT. PLEASE WELCOME TO THE STAGE BORDERLANDS 3 CREATIVE DIRECTOR PAUL SAGE. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] PLEASE WELCOME TO THE STAGE, GEARBOX SOFTWARE FOUNDER, ME! RANDY PITCHFORD. HOW IS IT GOING, GUYS? THANK YOU FOR JOINING US HERE IN HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA. AS WE SHARE BORDERLANDS 3 GAMEPLAY FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT TEN YEARS AGO, BORDERLANDS USHERED IN THE SHOOTER LOOTER. I MEAN, WHO WE ARE. WE ARE ABOUT HERE TO EXPERIENCE BORDERLANDS 3. IT HAS BEEN ABOUT FIVE YEARS SINCE THE GEARBOX SOFTWARE DEVELOPER TEAM STARTED WORKING ON THIS GAME. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BE HERE TO SHARE IT WITH YOU TODAY.>>NOW I KNOW THAT EVERYBODY IS USED TO HEARING ME AND RANDY SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE TEAM, TODAY, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME OF THE REST OF THE TALENT BEHIND BORDERLANDS.>>THE BORDERLANDS 3 TEAM, YOU GUYS! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU, GUYS. THESE DEVELOPERS ON STAGE INCLUDE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN WITH FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WHEN WE CREATED THE SHOOTER LOOTER GENRE. GREAT TALENT THAT HAS JOINED WITH US ALONG THE WAY. ALL OF US HERE HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER WITH OUR PEERS BACK IN GEARBOX FRISCO HQ AND GEARBOX STUDIO QUEBEC. WE ARE THRILLED TO BE HERE TO FINALLY SHARE OUR WORK. IF YOU EVER ENJOYED A BORDERLANDS GAME OR LOOKING FORWARD TO BORDERLANDS 3, IF YOU WILL INDULGE ME ONE MORE TIME, SHOW THIS TEAM, THIS TALENT.>>THEY WILL JOIN US IN A BIT. EACH OF YOU WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY LATER TO GO HANDS-ON WITH BORDERLANDS 3 AND THIS TIME, WE WILL BE WITH YOU HELPING YOU OUT. THANK YOU, GUYS. JEREMY, DEQUAN, COULD YOU STAY BEHIND?>>THEY WILL BE PLAYING. RIGHT HERE. I’M NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO AN EVENT LIKE THIS BEFORE. ALL OF THIS IS MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF OUR PUBLISHING PARTNER 2K GAMES, AND SUPPORT FROM HARDWARE PARTNER AMD POWERED BY RIESSEN AND RADION. WE HAVE INCREDIBLE [ EXPLETIVE ] BY THEM. WE WANTED TO PUT THAT AMD HARDWARE TO THE TEST WITH A POWERPOINT. SO CAN WE START THE PRESENTATION?>>YEAH! SO WE PREPARED A PRESENTATION ON WHAT THE NEXT BORDERLANDS GAME WILL BE.>>YOU ARE LOOKING AT ENGINE RENDERED IMAGE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING OF BORDERLANDS 3. LOOK AT THE ENVIRONMENT. IT IS PANDORA. THE ART. THE STYLE. THE GOAL WAS TO TRY TO CREATE AN IMAGE THAT WAS FRESH BUT ALSO FAMILIAR. WE WANTED TO LOOK FORWARD AND TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF TODAY’S TECHNOLOGY IN A WAY THAT RESPECTS THAT ONE OF A KIND ART DIRECTION KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE VIDEO GAME WORLD AS THE BORDERLANDS ART STYLE.>>OKAY. LET’S BE HONEST, THIS ISN’T AN ACTUAL SCREEN SHOT FROM THE GAME. WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT IS THE GAME. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] NOW WE SKIPPED PAST THE LOGOS AND A LOT OF THE INTRODUCTIONS BECAUSE WE FELT THAT THE MOST HONEST WAY TO BRING THE GAME TO YOU TODAY, WAS TO START FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. SO WITH THAT, LET’S PLAY SOME BORDERLANDS 3. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>YOU MUST BE THE NEW RECRUIT. I’M A STEWART BOT. AND YOU CAN CALL ME GENERAL CLAPTRAP OF THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. WHAT IS YOUR NAME?>>AMARA.>>THANK YOU.>>I’LL PREPARE YOUR TOMBSTONE JUST IN CASE. THOSE JERKS THAT TRY TO RUN YOU, THE CHILDREN OF THE CULT. ABANDONED CULT THAT FOLLOW THE CREEPY LEADERS WITH BLIND DEVOTION WHICH REMINDS ME, IF YOU ARE GOING TO OBEY MY EVERY BECKON CALL, YOU WILL NEED AN ECHO DEVICE. TRY IT OUT. I RINSED IT OFF MYSELF. THE ELKO 3. SLIGHTLY MORE POWERFUL THAN THE ECHO 2 AND TWICE AS EXPENSIVE. BESIDES, THE ECHO 2 HAD A TINY ISSUE WITH SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION. NOW LISTEN UP, RECRUIT, LILITH ORDERED US TO TAKE OVER THE CHILDREN OF THE BULK PROPAGANDA CENTER. TRY TO SHOW THOSE KULTI WEIRDOES THAT NO ONE MESSES WITH THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. FOLLOW ME TO GLORY!>>SO LILITH ORDERED US TO TAKE OVER THE RECRUITMENT CENTER OF THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT. IN THE INTRODUCTION THAT WE SKIPPED, YOU WOULD LEARN THAT THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT IS A NEW CULT THAT HAS EMERGED ON PANDORA. SIREN LILITH AND THE CRIMSON RAIDERS ARE RECRUITING NEW VAULT HUNTER, THAT IS YOU, US, AND WE ARE TO INVESTIGATE THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT CULT AND DISCOVER WHO THEIR MYSTERIOUS LEADERS ARE.>>BEFORE WE REEK OUR RIGHTEOUS VENGEANCE, REGISTER YOUR ECHO AT THIS CHANGE. ONCE WE DEFEAT THE CULT, I’LL BE FAMOUS. WHEN I AM SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS, I NEED YOU LOOKING SHARP WHILE DEFENDING ME FROM MY FAN/STALKERS.>>AS HERE, WE ARE PLAYING AMARA. A WARRIOR. AS CLAPTRAP MENTIONED, QUICK CHANGE, UP TO YOU HOW YOU WANT YOUR CHARACTER TO LOOK. YOU CAN CHANGE AMARA AND CHANGE IT OBVIOUSLY. LET’S KEEP PLAYING FOR NOW, GUYS.>>USER AGREEMENT? BORING. DON’T WORRY. CORPORATIONS HAVE OUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART. THE PROPAGANDA CENTER IS THIS WAY! LOCK, ENGAGE. THAT CAN’T BE HAPPENING. THE ENTIRE MISSION IS RUINED. THINK CLAPTRAP, YOU ARE GREAT, POWERFUL AND PEOPLE ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU TELL THEM TO. THAT IS IT. RECRUIT. GET THAT GATE OPEN. THIS IS AN ORDER FROM YOUR SUPERIOR OFFICER.>>SO OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE GETTING A GLIMPSE HERE ON HOW WE USE THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME TO MAKE SURE THAT PLAYERS ARE UP TO SPEED HOW FIRST PERSON VIDEO GAMES WORK. WE CAN VALIDATE THAT PLAYERS UNDERSTAND HOW TO NAVIGATE THE ENVIRONMENT AND INTERACT WITH IT.>>YOU DID IT! BEST RECRUIT EVER! DON’T GET COCKY.>>WE’LL EVEN BE ABLE TO KNOW HOW A PLAYER HAS LEARNED HOW TO CROUCH AND HOW TO SLIDE. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN JUMP. AND IF YOU MISS, THAT YOU CAN MANTLE UP, CLIMB THE HIGHER LEDGES.>>THE PROPAGANDA CENTER IS UP AHEAD. THEY HAVE BEEN KILLING LEFT AND RIGHT. THEY TOTALLY SUCK SKAG BALLS. I HAVE A FULL PROOF PLAN TO KICK THEIR [ EXPLETIVE ].>>WITH MOST GAMES, WE ARE USING THE BEGIN TO TEACH THE FUNDAMENTALS AND SETTING THE TONE OF THE GAME. RIGHT? JUST LIKE OUR UNIQUE ART STYLE, WE WANT PEOPLE TO FEEL RIGHT AWAY WHAT WE BELIEVE HELPS BORDERLANDS SPECIAL. A STYLE OF WRITING THAT IS RIVERRENCE AND GENUINE.>>I HID A WEAPONS CASH NEARBY. STAY QUIET AND FOLLOW MY EVERY MOVE. IT IS SEALTH TIME! [ SINGING ] PERFECT. ONCE WE COMPLETE OUR MISSION, LILITH HAS TO PROMOTE ME TO SUPER GENERAL. STAND BACK!>>SO WE ARE THROWING SETH OUT THE WINDOW?>>RELAX, IT IS PANDORA, SUPER WEIRD IF SOMETHING IS NOT EXPLODING. TAKE YOUR GUN, RECRUIT. YOU WILL NEED IT. THESE GUNS, LIKE MYSELF, AREN’T BEHOLDEN TO PRIMARY FUNCTION. I CAN DANCE. AND SING. ♪ AND NOW SOME GUNS INCLUDE AN ALTERNATE SHOOTING MODE ♪>>TRY IT OUT! FOLLOW ME, RECRUIT.>>ALL RIGHT. IS CLAPTRAP JUST MENTIONED IN ORDER TO STAY COMPETITIVE, SOME OF OUR GUN MANUFACTURERS HAVE ADDED ALTERNATE FIRING MODES. IF WE LOOK HERE, WE CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE A PISTOL. IF WE FIRE REGULARLY, WE FIRE BULLETS. BUT IF WE SWITCH OUR ALTERNATE FIRING MODES, WE FIRE OFF MICRO MISSILES. [APPLAUSE] NOW LATER IN THE GAME, YOU WILL FIND GUNS THAT CAN SWITCH BETWEEN ICE BULLETS AND FIRE BULLETS OR YOU MIGHT FIND GUNS THAT HAVE A CHAIN GUN ON TOP, WHEN SWITCH FIRING MODES, SHOOT GRENADES. IT GETS CRAZY. PLAYER WHOSE MAXIMIZE ALL FIRE MODES, TWICE THE NUMBER OF GUNS AVAILABLE THAN THEY HAD TO START WITH.>>WAIT HERE. I WILL TALK MY WAY IN, BECOME THEIR KING AND YOU WILL SURPRISE SLAUGHTER THEM IN COLD BLOOD. WATCH AND LEARN, RECRUIT. HELLO! ANYONE THERE?>>THE INFLUENCER ON THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT. WHAT DO YOU WANT BOT?>>HELLO, BLOOD THIRSTY MANIAC. IT IS I, CLAPTRAP, SLAYER OF THE DESTROYER. SUPER GENERAL OF THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. WE HAVE YOU COMPLETELY SURROUNDED. OPEN THE GATES NOW. PERHAPS I WILL BE MERCIFUL.>>OH, YEAH, LET ME THINK ABOUT THAT.>>THEY MIGHT CALL THEMSELVES CHILDREN OF THE VAULT BUT STILL BANDITS. BANDITS ARE INCREDIBLY STUPID.>>OKAY. WE ARE GOING TO SURRENDER. PLEASE DON’T KILL US.>>THAT IS WHAT I THOUGHT. OPEN THE DOORS IMMEDIATELY FOR YOUR NEW KING.>>EASY, EASY. WE ARE COMING OUT. JUST WAIT RIGHT THERE.>>HE DID IT. I DID IT. ANOTHER VICTORY FOR THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. HEY, I FEEL FUNNY. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME? WHOA! [INDISCERNIBLE]>>SEE THE DEGRADING COVER.>>LOOKIE WHAT WE GOT HERE!>>OH, OH! BORDERLANDS 3 IS RATED M FOR MATURE, RIGHT?>>PUT THESE BULLETS INTO THE BAD GUY, RIGHTED?>>YOU ARE GOING TO BE MY NEW TEAM BOT. I’M GOING TO GET IN YOUR HEAD.>>WHOA! REGROUP!>>I KNOW CLAPTRAP CAN BE A LITTLE CLAPTRAP BUT HE IS STILL ONE OF US. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SAVE HIM. I’LL BE THERE SOON.>>SO LET’S SEE IF WE CAN FIND SOME LOOT. I SAW OVER HERE NEAR THAT DOOR, I SAW A RED CHEST. IT LOOKS LIKE A TRUNK OF A CAR. WHAT DO WE GOT HERE? WHAT ELSE IS THERE? OH, THAT IS INTERESTING.>>ALL RIGHT. SO WE CAN SEE THAT THIS WEAPON HAS HIGH ACCURACY, HIGHER HANDLING, LET’S LOOK AT THE OTHER ONE. ALL RIGHT. THIS WEAPON HAS HIGHER DAMAGE AND HIGHER RELOAD TIME. IT IS FINESSE OR BRUTE FORCE IN THIS CASE.>>WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? SHOOT FROM THE HIP OR BAD [ EXPLETIVE ] SCOPE? I THINK THAT YOU GUYS SAID SCOPE. YOU KNOW WHAT? TAKE BOTH OF THEM. WE WILL TRY THE SCOPE AND THEN WE WILL SWITCH. THAT IS PRETTY BAD [ EXPLETIVE ]. THESE ARE LIKE LEVEL ONE GUNS, TOO.>>OVER HERE!>>OH!>>OIL IS FLAMMABLE.>>THERE IS NO WAY WITH YOUR DELICATE BODY CAN SURVIVE A SHOWDOWN. LOOK AROUND FOR A SHIELD!>>OKAY. WE NEED A SHIELD. THIS IS AN AREA MISSION. IF WE LOOK AROUND, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOME SOMEWHERE. NOT IN THE SKAG PILE.>>DEQUAN, YOU ON THIS? ALL RIGHT.>>THAT LOOKS PROMISING. THERE WE GO. 77. 105, THAT IS BETTER. TAKE THAT ONE.>>IT JUST MIGHT KEEP HIM FROM KILLING YOU IN ONE HIT. LET’S GET YOU IN THERE RECRUIT. HEY! ALL YOUR DUMB FRIENDS ARE DEAD! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A TRIAL BY COMBAT! BUT BECAUSE I’M STUCK WITH THIS, MY ROYAL SHALL TAKE ISSUE INSTEAD.>>COME ON IN. I HAVEN’T MET MY SACRIFICE QUOTA FOR THE DAY!>>SO I KNOW THAT YOU GUYS ARE GETTING AHEAD OF ME. YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING NEXT. THIS IS OUR FIRST MINI BOSS FIGHT. DEQUAN, YOU READY? WE ARE FLYING WITHOUT A NET HERE. NO GOD MODE. SO LET’S DO IT. [LAUGHTER]>>NICE!>>OH! [APPLAUSE]>>MY GOD! THAT WAS AWESOME.>>SCORE ONE FOR THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. YOU AND CLAPTRAP SECURE THE AREA. I’M ON MY WAY.>>THIS GAME IS DYNAMIC, DIFFERENT EVERY TIME THEY PLAY IT. THAT WAS THE BEST KILL EVER. I’M GLAD YOU GOT TO SEE THAT. LOOK AT THAT.>>RECRUIT, ARE YOU DEAD? IF NOT, GET ME DOWN! THE CONTROLS ARE ON THE SECOND FLOOR.>>NOW YOU’LL NOTICE THAT DEQUAN PICKED UP THE SHOTGUN THAT SHIV DROPPED. WE THINK THAT IT IS IMPORTANT THAT MOMENT OF VICTORY SHOULD HAVE A SUBSEQUENT REWARD AT THAT MOMENT. SO OF COURSE, YOU CAN PICK UP GEAR RIGHT AWAY.>>ALL RIGHT, DUDE. DEQUAN HAS THE SAME AFFLICTION I HAVE, YOU HAVE TO OPEN EVERY SINGLE FRICKEN’ CHEST. THIS IS A DEMO. ALL RIGHT. IT IS SO TEMPT, THOSE GREEN LIGHTS. OH, CLAPTRAP IS NAGGING AT US ALREADY. IT IS NOT A BORDERLANDS GAME UNLESS CLAPTRAP TRUMPS BETWEEN NEEDY, BOSSY AND PATHETIC. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT IT, I STILL KIND OF LOVE CLAPTRAP. LET’S HELP HIM OUT. THIS BORDERLANDS 3, YOU CAN REVIVE MPC’S AND MPC’S CAN REVIVE YOU! LET’S HELP OUT CLAPTRAP.>>FOCUS! WOW! I DID IT. I SINGLE HANDILY TAKE ON THE CMV AND SENT THEM PACKING. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS SIGNAL LILITH THAT THE MISSION IS COMPLETE. [APPLAUSE]>>LILITH, I CAN SAFELY REPORT THAT OPERATION IS A COMPLETE SUCCESS. I DID IT ALL BY MYSELF.>>I’LL BET. WELL, THE CULT HAS DESTROYED EVERY OTHER CRIMSON RAIDER STRONGHOLD. THIS WILL HAVE TO DO FOR NOW. SO WHAT’S YOUR NAME, KILLER?>>I AM AMARA. NICE TATTOO SIREN SISTER. YOU MUST BE THE VOICE IN MY HEAD.>>YEAH, ABOUT THAT, NOT THE WEIRDEST THING YOU WILL SEE ON PANDORA. BUT SERIOUSLY, THANKS FOR ANSWERING HI CALL. WE MIGHT NOT HAVE THE NUMBERS BUT WITH A BAD [ EXPLETIVE ] LIKE YOU, WE HAVE A FIGHTING CHANCE. WELCOME TO THE CRIMSON RAIDERS.>>HEY, DO YOU HEAR BLOOD THIRSTY SCREAMING?>>MORE COV. LET’S SEE WHAT YOU GOT, RECRUIT.>>IT IS THE FIRE HAWK!>>WATCH IT!>>YOU’RE ON THE WRONG TEAM [ EXPLETIVE ].>>SHE IS PRETTY RAD.>>NICE FIGHTING, KILLER.>>SO WE ARE GOING TO SKIP AHEAD FOR A MINUTE. I WANT YOU TO CONSIDER WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED SO FAR. YOU ARE A NEW VAULT HUNTER AND YOU JUST JOINED LILITH AND THE CRIMSON RAIDERS. OUR ENEMIES ON PANDORA ARE A FANATICAL CULT CALLED THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT. FROM HERE, YOU AND LILITH WILL FIGHT SIDE BY SIDE TO CAPTURE THE RECRUITING CENTER THAT LILITH BELIEVES SHE CAN RECOVER A KEY THAT WILL LEAD HER TO FIND VAULTS ON OTHER WORLDS. THE HUNT WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD US HERE TO THE HOLY BROADCAST CENTER WHERE A FEARSOME BANDIT BOSS, MOUTHPIECE, BROADCAST PROPAGANDA TO THE CHILDREN OF THE VAULT ALL OVER PANDORA. WHICH ARE HERE TO INVADE THE HOLY RECRUIT MANY CENTER, FACE MOUTHPIECE AND LIBERATE THE KEY TO THE VAULT.>>LIKE RANDY MENTIONED, WE SKIPPED AHEAD IN THE STORY, IF YOU NOTICE, WE SKIPPED AHEAD IN LEVELS.I WANT TO TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW YOU THE SKILLS IN BORDERLANDS 3. SO WHEN YOU FIRST GET YOUR SKILLS IN BORDERLANDS 3, YOU DON’T HAVE ONE ACTION SKILL AVAILABLE TO YOU, YOU HAVE ALL THREE ACTION SKILLS AVAILABLE TO YOU AT THE MOMENT YOU OPEN IT UP. SO THEN, WHAT YOU DO, YOU QUIP ONE OF YOUR ACTION SKILLS. YOU WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE ACTION SKILLS? SO THIS FIRST ONE, IT IS PHASEGRASS, WILL BE REMINISCENT OF MAYA, CONTROL THE BATTLEFIELD IN LIFTING ENEMIES UP TO THE AIR. THE NEXT ONE HERE IS PHASECAST. AND PHASELAM, IT IS AN AREA OF EFFECT THAT COMES OUT AROUND AMARA AND DESTROYS ENEMIES AND KNOCKS THEM BACK. AS YOU PROGRESS, ONCE YOU PICK YOUR ACTION SKILL AND QUIP IT, ALSO OPEN UP AUGMENTATIONS THAT ALLOW YOU TO FURTHER CUSTOMIZE THAT ACTION SKILL. MAXIMIZE THE SKILL OF YOUR CHARACTER. WE WORKED HARD THAT EACH OF THE FOUR CHARACTERS ARE COMPLETELY UNIQUE. EVEN WITHIN EACH CHARACTER, HUNDREDS OF MEANINGFUL OPTIONS. IF TWO PEOPLE WANT TO TEAM UP AND PLAY THE SAME CHARACTER, VERY LIKELY HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CAPABILITIES.>>YOU READY TO GO?>>LET’S DO IT.>>LEVEL UP. ALL RIGHT. LEVELED UP.>>ONE THING TO LOOK OUT FOR, LOOK AT THE DAMAGE NUMBERS THAT COME UP OFF THE ENEMIES. WE’LL USE SOME OF THE INFORMATION LATER. LOOK AT NUMBER, 56, 26.>>26 IS THERE.>>OH.>>NOW THAT IS A HIGH PERIOD SHOTGUNS. HIGH PERIOD SHOTGUNS HAVE SHIELDS THAT COME OUT.>>SWITCH BACK TO THE SHOTGUN. [ MUSIC ]>>IT IS A NEW ELEMENT TYPE, RADIATION.>>HIT CRITICAL MASS.>>AT THE RADIATED ENEMY DIE, HE WILL EXPLODE AND RADIATE THE ENEMIES AROUND HIM.>>OKAY. [ LAUGHTER ]>>THAT IS MAYHEM. I THINK THAT HE CLEANED THIS AREA UP. LET’S SEE WHAT KIND OF LOOT WE CAN FIND. THAT IS AN OUTHOUSE BUT A GREEN LIGHT. SOME GOOD STUFF. LET’S SEE HERE. SO AMARA’S LEVEL 5, THESE WEAPONS ARE LEVEL 5. I WANT YOU TO NOTICE THAT, NOTICE THE TWO HERE. WE HAVE A RARE AND EPIC. BOTH LEVEL 5. AND THE REASON I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT, IS BECAUSE THAT WAS KIND OF A CHALLENGING FIGHT. WE ARE GOING TO NEED SOME HELP FOR THE NEXT SECTION. WE WILL BRING THIS A CO-OP BUDDY. CO-OP PLAYABLE, SPLIT SCREEN, NETWORK, HOWEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO PLAY. AMARA PICKED UP THE PURPLE. LET’S TURNAROUND AND FIND OUR CO-OP BUDDY. THIS IS ZANE FLYNT. THE OPERATIVE. WE WILL SWITCH TO ZANE’S VIEW. CAN WE FLIP THAT? I WANT YOU TO NOTICE SOMETHING HERE. ZANE IS LEVEL 25. OBVIOUSLY ZANE HAS BEEN PLAYING LONGER THAN AMARA THAT IS LEVEL 5. IF WE LOOK AT ZANE’S LOOT, HE HAS HIS OWN INSTANCE OF LOOT. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? THIS IS CALLED LOOT INSTANCING, IT IS A NEW OPTIONAL FEATURE IN BORDERLANDS 3. IT ALLOWS EACH COOPERATIVE PLAYER TO HAVE THEIR OWN INSTANCE OF LOOT. INSTANCE LOOT IS HELPFUL FOR PLAYERS THAT WANT TO PLAY COOPERATIVELY BUT DON’T WANT TO COMPETE FOR THE LOOT THAT DROPS. NOTHING WORSE THAN GETTING ON LEAN WITH RANDOMS AND A LOOT NINJA IN THE GROUP, RIGHT? INSTANCE LOOT SOLVES THAT PROBLEM FOR PLAYERS THAT WANT TO USE IT. THE OTHER FEATURE THAT COMPLEMENTS THIS IS LEVEL BALANCING. NOTICE HOW ZANE’S LOOT IS NOT ONLY INSTANCED, BUT IT IS ACTUALLY BALANCED FOR HIS LEVEL. THAT MEANS THE LOOT, THE ENEMIES, EVERYTHING AUTOMATICALLY BALANCES TO THE LEVEL OF THE PLAYER SO THAT EVERYONE HAS A GOOD TIME. AND MY COI DON’T KNOW GROUP, SOME OF US WOULD GET AHEAD OF THE OTHER, RIGHT? THEN BACK TOGETHER, OUT OF WHACK. WITH INSTANCE LOOT AND THIS MODE OF GAMEPLAY, EVERYTHING BALANCES OUT.>>NOW, THAT IS OKAY. AND YOU CAN CLAP IF YOU WOULD LIKE. [ APPLAUSE ] NOW THERE ARE STILL SOME OF US WHO ACTUALLY LIKE COMPETING FOR LOOT OR BRINGING IN OVERPOWERED CHARACTERS TO HELP LEVEL UP THE LOWER LEVEL CHARACTERS. FOR THOSE WHO ARE LIKE THAT, WE CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THERE IS STILL A MODE FOR YOU IN BORDERLANDS 3. IT IS CALLED CLASSIC MODE. [APPLAUSE]>>THAT IS RIGHT. NOW THAT WE HAVE SEEN ZANE THE OPERATIVE, LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT WHAT HE CAN DO. ZANE IS LEVEL 25. WE EQUIPPED A LOT OF ACTION SKILLS AND SKILL POINTS HERE. YOU WANT TO WALK US THROUGH THIS, PAUL IN.>>LET’S DO THIS. THE FIRST SKILL WE HAVE IS DING DALE DIGICLONE. IT WILL SHOOT GUNS AS WELL. MY FAVORITE FEATURE, TELEPORT TO DIGICLONE AND SWAP PLACES. THIS IS DRONE THAT WILL THREE OUT OR WEAKEN THE ENEMIES OR USE GRENADES IF YOU HAVE GRENADE MODE EQUIPPED. AND THEN WE HAVE THE BARRIER SKILL. NOW ZANE WILL THROW OUT A BARRIER IN FRONT OF IT AND BLOCK INCOMING BULLETS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. ONE OF THE COOLEST FEATURE, IF YOUR TEAM OR ZANE IS AROUND THIS, CONFIRM BENEFITS LIKE HEALING, EVEN IF YOU HIRE THROUGH IT, ADD ELEMENTAL TYPES TO THAT. NOW PROBABLY MY FAVORITE FEATURE OF ZANE IS THE FACT THAT ZANE CAN USE TWO ACTION SKILLS AT ONE TIME.>>THAT IS RIGHT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IF YOU THINK ABOUT ZANE, RIGHT? HE HAS HIS BARRIER, WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE THE SOLDIER CLASS’S CAPABILITY. HE HAS THE SENTINEL WHICH IS LIKE MORDECAI BLOOD WING BUT HYPED UP FROM THAT. HE HAS THE DIGICLONE, LIKE OUR SKILL FROM BORDERLANDS 2. HE IS LIKE A SOLDIER, ASSASSIN WRAPPED UP IN ONE. ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE AMARA, ZANE, WE KNOW WHAT THEY CAN DO. LET’S GET INTO THE HOLY BROADCAST CENTER TO TO SEE IF WE CAN FIND MOUTHPIECE.>>OOPSY. LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A TECHNICAL ISSUE. DON’T WORRY. WE’LL POST THE WELCOME BID LATER ALONG WITH SOME NEW, LET’S PLAY. SIGNING OFF FOR NOW. DON’T FORGET TO LIKE, FOLLOW AND OBEY.>>ANOTHER PERFECT LIVE STREAM FROM OUR INFALLIBLE GOD QUEEN TYREEN. THE HOLY BROADCASTER OPENS ONCE AGAIN TO HEAR YOUR SINS AND RECEIVE YOUR SKINS!>>OUCH!>>TYREEN!>>WHEW! STILL GOT IT!>>THESE ARE THE EMBARKING TARGETS FOR THE SENTINEL. ALSO CHECK OUT THE DAMAGE NUMBERS, RIGHT? HIS ENEMIES ARE LEVEL 27. BUT HIS DAMAGE IS DOWN TO AMARA’S GAME. BECAUSE HE IS IN AMARA’S GAME RIGHT NOW. FOR AMARA, THOSE ENEMIES ARE LEVEL 5. ALL RIGHT. WE CLEAN THIS AREA UP. LET’S SEE IF WE CAN FIND SOME LOOT. OKAY. NOW ONCE AGAIN, BEING HONEST, YOU KNOW, TO SHOW THE BREAD OF GUN, SOME OF THE BREAD. WE CHEATED AND ADDED SOME CHESTS WITH BETTER WEAPONS.>>THAT RED CHEST WON’T BE IN THE GAME YOU PLAY. WE ADDED THAT FOR THIS PURPOSE. IT IS OKAY. THERE ARE PLENTY OF RED CHESTS. YOU’LL BE FIND. WE’LL FEED YOU BABY BERDS. WE WANTED TO SHOW YOU SOME TEDO, INSTEAD OF RELOADING, YOU THROW THEM AWAY. WHEN YOU THROW AWAY THEM IN BORDERLANDS 3, SOME CRAZY [ EXPLETIVE ] CAN HAPPEN. GUNS WITH LEGS. LET’S SEE SOME OTHER OPTIONS. WHAT DOES THIS ONE DO? WE PICKED SOME DISTRICT OF [IND] WEAPONS, AND GO INTO THE FIGHT.>>WE AREN’T GOING TO LEARN. KEEPING THOSE SPEAKERS.>>OH, IT IS ADORABLE.>>YOU CAN SEE THAT ONE MERV’S ROCKETS OUT.>>THROW A MERV GUN OUT. CHECK THIS OUT. CALMING ROCKETS. THAT WAS A LITTLE CLOSE TO THE EARS.>>OH, GOODBYE.>>ALL RIGHT. AND YOU GUYS READY? OH, YOU LEARNED! WE CAN DODGE THAT.>>THAT IS WICKED. I SEE SOME AMMUNITION VENDING MACHINES. WALK UP TO THAT AMMO VENDING MACHINE. I WANT TO SHOW YOU THIS. HE IS ALREADY FULL ON AMMO. YOU JUST PRESS Y RIGHT THERE AND RELOAD ALL OF THE AMMO. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO IN AND BUY THINGS ONE AT A TIME. [ APPLAUSE ] OF COURSE, YOU CAN BUY INDIVIDUAL PIECES IF YOU WANT. NOW, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUY, WHEN YOU PLAY A VIDEO GAME AND HAPPEN UPON A ROOM WHERE THERE IS AMMO AND VENDING MACHINES TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE STOCKED UP, YOU ARE A SAFE BET THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO RUN INTO A BOSS FIGHT. NOT ONLY BORDERLANDS A A MUCH, MUCH LARGER GAME THAN BEFORE IT, MORE BOSS FIGHTS THAN EVER BEFORE. WE THINK BOSS FIGHTS ARE EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FOR PLAYERS TO HAVE SKILL TESTED AND REWARDED WITH KICK [ EXPLETIVE ] LOOT. LET’S GO AHEAD AND SEE IF WE CAN FIND MOUTHPIECE.>>ALL RIGHT. [ MUSIC ]>>YOU WILL DIE!>>THIS SHIELDS LIKE AN EQUALIZER. ZANE USED HIS TELEPORT TO DODGE THAT AREA OF EFFECT THAT MOUTHPIECE JUST MADE. OH [ EXPLETIVE ].>>IS THAT ALL YOU GOT? OH! OH!>>OH, GOD. YOU NEED IT.>>YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE LOOT, MAN. SOME LOOT OVER THERE.>>GET THE LOOT.>>DID YOU SEE THE GUN THAT MOUTHPIECE WAS SHOOTING AT US WITH SOUND WAVES FLYING OUT? CHECK THIS OUT. [APPLAUSE] ONE OF THE GREATEST FEELINGS IN BORDERLANDS IS WHEN AN ENEMY IS USING A GUN AGAINST YOU, YOU KILL THAT GUY AND TAKE THAT GUN AND USE IT AGAINST YOUR NEXT ONE. I LOVE THAT SO MUCH.>>WELL, LET’S DO WHAT WE CAME HERE FOR. LET’S GET THE VAULT MAP.>>AMARA WILL YOU PICK THAT UP?>>HAVE YOU COME ALL THIS WAY WITH THAT BUSTED [ EXPLETIVE ] MAP? OR SEE ME? I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE A SUPER FAN. AND YOU MISSED THE SHOW. WHAT IS UP WITH THE HUGS? IT IS A THING I DO. CHECK OUT THE SCREENS. SO I OFFERED THE SONS MATCHES A PLACE IN MY FAMILY BUT THEY JUST WANTED GUNS AND CATCH. THEY BETRAYED THE FAMILY. THEN, SAID SOMETHING GREAT.>>GODS DON’T NEGOTIATE.>>GODS DON’T NEGOTIATE? I LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LIKE I SAID, THAT MAP IS SUPER BUSTED. GO AHEAD AND TAKE IT. I’LL SWING BY LATER TO PICK IT UP. YOU ARE MY MOST LOYAL FOLLOWER VAULT. AND YOU JUST DON’T KNOW IT YET.>>SO YOU HAVE JUST MET TRY AND TYREEN KAL CALYPSO. THE CALYPSO TWINS. WE LEARNED EARLIER ON PANDORA, A CULT CALLED CHILDREN OF THE VAULT. EVERY CULT NEEDS LEADERS. THIS VAULT IS LED BY THE KAL CAO TWINS. CULT OF PERSONALITY AROUND THEMSELVES. YOU KNOW THE TYPE OF STREAMERS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. THE KIND OF STREAMERS EVERYBODY HATES. THESE ARE THE DOUCHEY STREAMERS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE FUTURE, THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE. AS TYREEN IMAGINED, ABILITY TO LEECH POWER FROM ANY LIVING THING. HER AIM TO USE THE CULT TO LEAD HER TO THE VAULTS TO SOAK UP THE POWER OF THE VAULT MONSTERS. WE ARE VAULT HUNTERS. WE CAN’T ALLOW HAD HER TO BEAT US IN THE PRIZE. WE ARE NOW IN A RACE TO FIND THE VAULT HIDDEN IN OTHER WORLDS THROUGHOUT THE GALAXY. IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN WE GO TO THE OTHER WORLDS WE ARE GOING TO NEED A RIDE. RIGHT? SO LATER IN OUR VENTURE ON PANDORA, WE WILL FIND A SPACESHIP. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE SANCTUARY. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT SANCTUARY 2. SINCE SANCTUARY 3 IS OUR HOME BASE IT IS A GREAT STOPPING POINT BETWEEN MISSIONS. ON SANCTUARY 3 WE MEET OUR FRIEND, TRADE OUR LOOT AND PREPARE OURSELVES FOR WHAT COMES NEXT. YOU’LL NOTICE HERE, THERE IS A QUICK CHANGE STATION WHERE WE CAN MODIFY OUR APPEARANCE. BUT THERE IS A NEW VENDING MACHINE HERE ON THE RIGHT. THIS IS SORT OF A SPACE LOST AND FOUND. HAVE YOU GUYS EVER LOST LOOT IN BORDERLANDS? LIKE A PURPLE OR A LEGENDARY LANDS, SOMEPLACE WE CAN’T REACH? WE COLLECT ALL OF THAT LOST LOOT FOR YOU, AND DELIVER IT HERE FOR YOU. YOU WILL NEVER LOSE LOOT AGAIN. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] ALL RIGHT. SO LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. THIS IS YOUR PLAYER QUARTERS.% BECAUSE WE ARE PLAYING AMARA RIGHT NOW, ALL OF THE DECORATION AND EVERYTHING BILL AROUND AMARA. YOU CAN PLACE THINGS LIKE THIS GUN, WE HAVE A TORRID PISTOL HERE.>>PRETTY RAD.>>YOU CAN MODIFY THE PLAYER QUARTERS HOW YOU WANT TO PLAY.>>SINCE WE PICKED UP A PISTOL, WE WILL TAKE IT WITH US ON A TOUR AROUND SANCTUARY. AND WHY DON’T WE STOP FIRST, LET’S HEAD TO MARCUS, KEEP GOING. IGNORE THAT GOLDEN CHEST. MARCUS’S PLACE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER HERE.>>OH, IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY. FULL OF OPPORTUNITY.>>NOW BORDERLANDS 3 MARCUS WILL BE VENDOR FOR YOWP GRADES TO THE — UPGRADES TO STORAGE DECK UNIT. MORE STORAGE TO CARRY MORE LOOT AND MORE AMMUNITION.>>YOU WILL NOTICE THAT IT COST CASH TO UPGRADE YOUR STORAGE.>>MARCUS ALSO HAS A SHOOTING RANGE BACK THERE, IF YOU WANT TO GET YOUR SKILLS UP, PRACTICE WITH ANY INTERESTING NEW GUNS YOU FOUND, YOU CAN DO THAT.>>WHAT IS GOING ON BOW HUNTER?>>WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AROUND THIS PLACE. ISN’T THAT COOL? THIS MAP CHANGED HANDS MORE THAN ANY OTHER ONE. TALENTED WORLD BUILDERS WANTED TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THIS AND MAKE IT GREAT. IT IS NOT A PUB UNTIL YOU HAVE A MOXXIE’S BAR, RIGHT? [APPLAUSE]>>THE NAME IS MOXXIE. WHAT IS YOUR’S SUGAR? THANKS FOR THE HELP SUGAR. COME BACK.>>LET’S TRY IT.>>YEP. ALL RIGHT.>>THAT IS NOT GOOD.>>NO.>>BAD LUCK.>>WELL, THANKS FOR ENCOURAGING THAT.>>LET’S KEEP GOING ON THE TOUR. I LOVE SANCTUARY. IT IS JUST SUCH A BEAUTIFUL, I DON’T KNOW, THE LEVEL, I DIDN’T WORK ON THIS ONE THAT MUCH, BUT HELP GUIDE SOME OF IT. BUT THE GUYS THAT DID THE ART FOR THIS, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. THESE ARE THE JOKES.>>YOU’RE UP LATE.>>GOOD EVENING! KNOCK, KNOCK. ANYONE HOME?>>JUST A MOMENT. ALMOST THERE. OH! WHEW! SURPRISINGLY COMFORTABLE, YOU KNOW. LIKE SLUSHY SLEEPING BAG. ALTHOUGH I FEEL A BIT VISCOUS.>>SO TANNIS IS BACK. LET’S GO HEAD UP TO THE BRIDGE.>>ALL RIGHT.>>HEY PAUL.>>YES, RANDY?>>WHAT CAN WE DO ON THE BRIDGE?>>SO FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, WE CAN LEAVE THE PANDORA SYSTEM.>>YOU CAN SEE PANDORA IN THERE, IN THE DISTANCE.>>WHAT’S UP, KILLER? ALL RIGHT. LET’S GET TO IT.>>WE ARE IN ORBIT AROUND PANDORA RIGHT NOW. WE’LL CHECK IT OUT BRIEFLY BEFORE WE TAKE OFF. YOU CAN SEE THE DISTINCTIVE MERIDIAN SCAR. BUT WITH THE SPACESHIP LIKE SANCTUARY 3, WE CAN VISIT OTHER WORLDS. NOW THIS IS EARLY IN THE GAME. SO WE HAVEN’T UNLOCKED A LOT OF THE OTHER PLACES THAT YOU WILL GET TO EXPLORE. BUT FOR NOW, WE ARE GOING TO DO INTERSTELLAR FAST TRAVEL TO PROM ETHEA.>>I ARRIVED IN ONE PIECE. [ APPLAUSE ]>>WE’LL GO DOWN TO PROMETHEA IN A MOMENT AND MAKE OUR WAY TO THE DOCKING BAY IN ORDER TO DO THAT. IN BORDERLANDS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND FORTH FROM PROMETHEA AND PANDORA AND ALL OF THE OTHER WORLDS YOU DISCOVER THROUGHOUT THE GAME.>>MIGHT EVEN FIND A FEW FAMILIAR FACES HERE.>>WHAT’S UP BAD [ EXPLETIVE ]?>>I LOVE MAYA’S LOOK. SHE IS FULLY JEDI ‘ED OUT. WE’LL TAKE A COUPLE OTHER STOPS ON THE WAY DOWN TO THE HANGER, CONTINUE OUR TOUR OF SANCTUARY 3. OH, YEAH, LET’S GO TO HAMMERLOCKS.>>HERE AT HAMMERLOCKS, ONE OF THE COOL THINGS IS THAT HAMMERLOCK ASKS YOU TO KILL DIFFERENT CREATURES. THIS IS A TROPHY ROOM FOR KILLING THE CREATURES.>>OH, IT IS YOU. APOLOGIES, IT IS DARK AND I NEVER ACTUALLY CLEANED THIS MOLECULE.>>YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE TROPHY MOUNTS ON THE WALL IS EMPTY. WHICH MEANS WE HAVE WORK TO DO.>>LOT OF WORK TO DO.>>YOU ARE IN THE SHIP, YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE SHORT CUTS BUILT IN.>>THE MORE TIME YOU SPEND ON PROMETHEA, THE MORE FAMILIAR YOU WILL GET TO IT. WE ENGINEERED SHORT CUTS AND FIND YOUR WAY AROUND AND WHAT YOU NEED PRETTY QUICKLY.>>HOW IS YOUR DAY GOING?>>HI THERE, SUGAR BOOTS.>>ELLIE IS SHIP MECHANIC. SHE RUNS THE CARGO BAY. DOWN HERE, WE CAN CHECK OUT VEHICLES WE COLLECTED. WE CAN ALSO GET ACCESS TO THE PLANETS WHEN WE ARE IN ORBIT. WE ALSO HAVE SOME STOL AWAYS THAT WE CAN MEET.>>WHAT YOU WANT? COME BACK, NEVER!>>I THINK THAT VENDING MACHINE THERE SAID VETERAN ON IT. [LAUGHTER]>>DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT. I’M DOING ALL OF THE REAL WORK HERE.>>AND HE LOCKED US OUT.>>I THINK THAT HE IS BUILDING A GIRLFRIEND.>>I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT CLAPTRAP IS LONELY. IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE. SO WE ARE GOING TO HEAD TO THE DROP POD HERE. THIS WILL HELP US GET DOWN TO PROMETHEA, IN FACT, WHY NOT SKIP AHEAD A LITTLE BIT. RATHER THAN START AT THE BEGINNING OF PROMETHEA, WE CAN JUMP FORWARD, A BUNCH OF LEVELS AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU EXCITING ACTION HERE. IN THIS, PROMETHEA IS THE ATLAS OF THE CORPORATION. YOU WILL NOTICE THAT ATLAS IS UNDER SIEGE BY MALLAWAN AND PRIVATE ARMY. IN BORDERLANDS, IN THIS UNIVERSE, WHEN A CORPORATION ATTEMPTS A HOSTILE TAKEOVER, THEY DO IT WITH FULL MILITARY GRADES FOR.>>NOW BEFORE WE START, I WANT YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE GUN WE ARE USING HERE.

  1. I already wanted to play zane when reading their shit just based on being able to use 1 skill but qhen they said zane can use 2 I flipped

  2. Can anyone explain the meaning of that lost loot?? Does he mean when our inventory is full and we need to drop some guns to make space for the better ones and the dropped guns are lost loot??

  3. Love the bush animation at 8:31. Instead of going through the bush, you are also making it move. Very nice detail.

  4. Now THIS is how you do a gameplay reveal. I even loved how it wasnt entirely scripted either in regards to combat and gun choice.

    Unlike Anthem…

  5. i bet he has 87 health in the beginning instead of 88 so germans cannot say something like: AAH NAZI GAME?!

  6. Look…. no villain will ever compare to handsome jack. Handsome jack was a true trope to “ you either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain”

    In my opinion Lilith was the true villain, if she wouldn’t have betraYed jack nothing would have happened.

    I’m so happy for this game but I know the villain won’t come close to handsome jack

  7. bro this game is actual fire. so many cool new mechanics and the graphics look like apex. I must acquire this game

  8. One thing that scares me- I don’t doubt the amount of areas will be larger then before however due to it allowing us to leave pandora and go to other planets I feel it’ll indirectly make places feel smaller if you get me?

  9. Glad to have atlas make a big return, would love them to see there reaction the crimson raiders logo seeing that they stole it from the Crimson Lance.

  10. Honestly the best thing is the sliding. There are really good things in it too, but personally I think the sliding is best

  11. Moxxi looks like a transgender now. That face…
    I don't know if this was on purpose or just bad design.

  12. If my friend joins me and we complete the game, then he goes on to his save will he have completed the game too?

  13. Other studios: Heres a little trailer video for this game. It will be AMAZING but we wont show ANY gameplay. OR we will show you gameplay of literally a doctored video that our developers will finally get to see what the game will be like. Time for crunch mode!

    Gearbox: heres actual gameplay, lets play around in it, heres this and this and this and this. OH and yall can play the game and stream it on these computers here. Have fun!

    Randy Pitchfords still a stink. but I hope other studios can see how a game is made with the developers using their creativity vs without creativity

  14. The game comes out a day before my bday.
    Guess what game I'm copping 😀
    Edit: Graphics look fucking amazing. Which Vault Hunter are you guys going to pick? I wanted to use the robot dude who fights with Rakk and Spiderants.

  15. 11:00 I really like how vibrant Claptrap is now, what makes most proof of that is his neverending floppy antenna on his head I can't stop staring
