Borderlands 3 First Official Gameplay Footage Leaks Online Ahead of Tomorrow’s Reveal
Here's our anticlimactic first look at the gameplay from Borderlands 3.
Tomorrow, Gearbox Software and 2K Games is set to unveil the first gameplay footage from this year’s release of Borderlands 3. Up until this point, we have only received a handful of different trailers for the game rather than actual gameplay.
Ahead of the game’s formal reveal event though, a new sequence of official gameplay footage for Borderlands 3 leaked online just recently. The footage supposedly leaked on Twitch via the game’s new ECHOcast extension that was announced yesterday. While the footage was eventually scrubbed from Twitch, that didn’t prevent some people from downloading it ahead of time.
Unfortunately, the footage doesn’t show a whole lot. In total, it is only about 30 seconds in length and it basically just shows off the player opening a few different chests in the world before then standing still for about 10 seconds. So if you were hoping for a some shootouts with enemies and such, then I apologize. That will likely come tomorrow.
Still, it’s worth noting just how gorgeous Borderlands 3 looks after having made the leap to next-generation platforms. The game seems to be running incredibly smooth and the colors pop very well.
Plus, as a final mention, we can also briefly see Handsome Jack appearing on a poster in the corner of the room at one point in this footage. While Handsome Jack has been said to not appear in Borderlands 3, since he is dead, after all, Gearbox could easily be pulling a fast one on fans. We’ll have to wait to find out in the full game.
Regardless, the video below shows the gameplay video in mention if you’d like to check it out. We’ll be sure to share all of the new gameplay for Borderlands 3 with you tomorrow once it is released.
Borderlands 3 is set to release later this year on September 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
