Borderlands 3 is reassuringly more interesting than its predecessor. While it retains a familiar storyline and comic-style graphics, the character progression, weapon management, shootings, and frat-boy humor make this game distinctly epic.
You will note a few new features; the most notable being a chance to choose between four types of Vault Hunters: Amara, Moze, Zane, and FL4K. Players need to select their ideal Vault Hunter at the beginning of the game and are not allowed to change during the game.
The game is about experimenting with a range of guns around the map, finding cover, looting crates, and facing obstacles, which is much more fun than previous Borderlands games.
The game begins with you leaving Pandora to chase the chaotic Calypso Twins- Troy and Tyreen in a bid to stop them from looting the Vault and causing problems on every planet they come into contact with.
Lilith recruits you to Crimson Raider’s resident Vault Hunter, thereby embarking on a massive, rambling quest to take on a host of planets and find the Great Vault. Sadly, the Calypso Twins have formed alliances with bandit clans and formed partnerships with several corporations to find the Great Vault too. Thus, you are in constant competition with them.
The weapons are pretty responsive and have alt-mode that helps you track the enemy and switch to smart bullets. What’s more, an SMG can change from shooting poison projectiles to shooting flame bullets while a rocket launcher can launch small and large missiles.
This alt mode helps players adapt and attack their foe’s weaknesses and find weapons that match your playstyle. Also, you get to save on inventory space because you don’t have to carry a range of weapons to perform different roles.
Borderlands 3 is not a role-playing game about a narrative. The story builds up as you choose your weapons and make decisions.
Solo or Multi-play
You can play the game alone or with a friend online or on split-screen mode. The game has been designed to allow two players to play even when on different stages of the game. Also, there is an end-game when you finish the storyline.
