2K Games and Gearbox have released some new screenshots for Borderlands 3, showcasing the new planet Promethea. This planet appears to be a sci-fi world with lots of neon lights and skyscrapers (I guess Blade Runner fans will find it interesting).
Borderlands 3 promises to be a hilarious, story-driven, non-stop galactic thrill-ride, filled with colorful characters, epic enemies and boss fights, and literally billions of guns.
From what we know so far, the game will allow players to fully remap all of the controls, toggle headbob, auto-mantling, and aim assist options, and there will also be extensive closed captioning options (including text size and opacity) as well as deep considerations for color blindness.
Borderlands 3 promises to take full advantage of the most powerful PC hardware available, and is optimized for top performance and incredible gaming experiences on AMD Radeon graphics cards and Ryzen CPUs. The game will also be one of the first that will support AMD’s new FidelityFX tech.
The game will also support cross-play though not at launch. We don’t know whether Gearbox will be able to offer cross-play between all platforms (PS4, Xbox One and PC) or whether we’ll see cross-play between PC and PS4 or PC and Xbox One.
Last but not least, and while the game will not feature any pay to win mechanics, it will have microtransactions for cosmetics.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
