It’s been six years since the cell-shaded, open world, massively multiplayer online RPG game Borderlands 2 was released, and game developer Gearbox just dropped the first official trailer for its rightful sequel, Borderlands 3.
The second numbered game in the series spawned a variety of additional content, including “expansions, spinoff games, a VR port, an adventure game, and compilations,” as summarized by Polygon. However, this new game promises to be a massive leap forward in the game’s anthology, as much as Polygon writer Ben Kuchera disagrees.
Better yet, watching the trailer offers up a bit of nuance in the music accompanying it. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Griz’s song “Can’t Hold Me Down” featuring Tash Neal.
Video games and other brands are no strangers to using EDM tracks for their ads, but it’s still always nice to hear a recognizable track when it happens.
Gearbox promises more Borderlands 3 news on April 3, so if the trailer below doesn’t appease you — or Mr. Kuchera — there’s still more to look forward to.
