Borderlands 3 Release Date and Vault Hunter Details Announced by 2K

Turns out the April Fool’s Joke Was Not so Much of a Joke

Three days ago, on the most unfortunate news day of the year, April 1st, the official Borderlands Twitter account mis-posted something. It was an announcement that Borderlands 3 would be released on September 13th. The tweet was quickly deleted, because of course, April Fool’s Day. It turns out that it was deleted 2K or Gearbox just was not ready to say it just yet. According to 2K’s Borderlands 3 product page, the Borderlands 3 release date is in fact September 13th. There goes that theory of the release date being hidden in the reveal trailer.

2K also gave fans a rundown on the new Vault Hunters. There’s a Gunner, Siren, Beastmaster, and an Operative (with a really cool name). Here’s the official description of the playable characters:

  • Moze as THE GUNNER: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech–Iron Bear–for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
  • Amara as THE SIREN: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
  • FL4K as THE BEASTMASTER: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.
  • Zane as THE OPERATIVE: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.

Guess who I’m going to be playing as. Yep, my namesake: FL4K. Borderlands 3 is coming out on September 13th on PC (not Steam), Xbox One, and PS4. The standard and all other editions can be pre-ordered now.
