Borderlands 3 is an upcoming action role-playing first-person shooter video game developed by Gearbox Software, and the fourth main entry in the Borderlands series. It is to be released on 13 September 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Some time after the events of Tales from the Borderlands, the game’s antagonists Troy and Tyreen Calypso learn of other Vaults beyond the planet Pandora, and found a violent cult named the “Children of the Vault” to gain possession of them. Lilith, one of the player characters from the first Borderlands game, recruits the player’s new “Vault Hunter” character to help stop the Calypso twins. Many characters from previous Borderlands games are set to return, including from the spin-off game Tales from the Borderlands.

Borderlands 3 shares the same core loop with previous games around taking on missions, defeating enemies, and obtaining loot from fallen foes or special chests, most often in the form of procedurally generated weapons to vary in damage, range, ammo capacity, and other special perks, giving the game “over one billion guns”.
