    You’ll be capable of tackling the Calypso Twins and their fanatical followers alone, but when you team up with other Vault Hunters, you’ll really feel unstoppable. With that in mind, one of the things that I’m most excited about in Borderlands 3 are the improvements that we’ve made to co-op. Regardless of your respective levels or mission progress, you and your friends can play together online or on the couch, and not only will each of you deal a meaningful amount of damage, you’ll also receive your own discrete loot stream. No more loot ninjas! Of course, if you prefer to play with classic Borderlands 2 co-op rules—where loot is shared—you can choose to do so.

History! - This is gonna be important so let's recap

BL1 - 2009


This was the original shoot and loot, complete with a stolen art style.

Borderlands is set in the distant future, at a time when various mega-corporations seek control of various planets to colonise and mine for their mineral wealth. Prior to the events of the game, the Atlas Corporation, one of the major mega-corporations, uncovered an ancient alien vault filled with advanced weapons technology, allowing them to rapidly overtake their competitors. Finding similar ruins of the same alien architecture on the planet Pandora, Atlas sought to settle the planet in hopes of finding more alien technology, but were forced to abandon their plans due to a failure to find any alien technology on the surface, and being unprepared for the dangerous wildlife coming out of its winter hibernation during their stay. After their departure, the Dahl Corporation, another mega-corporation, colonized the planet to secure its vast deposits of minerals, using large amounts of convict labor for the mining operations, while initiating their own search for a vault.

Their research team's efforts to find the vault were headed up by Patricia Tannis, a respected xeno-archeologist. Despite losing all of her colleagues to the planet's wildlife and being driven partially insane herself, Tannis found proof that a vault existed on Pandora. Her news was intercepted by Atlas, who sent its private military force, the Crimson Lance, to kidnap Tannis and get the vault's location from her. Faced with their invasion, Dahl abandoned the planet, taking only the wealthy colonists with them, and leaving the remaining population to scavenge for a living amongst the barren wastelands and industrial trash heaps across the planet. To make matters worse, the convict labor was allowed to go free, leading them to form gangs of bandits that terrorize the local populace. Despite the circumstances, the vault transformed into a legend that attracts mercenary "Vault Hunters" to the planet.

THAT SENTENCE HAD TOO MANY SYLLABLES, APOLOGIZE!!!

Ok sorry no more ripping from Wikipedia. The player characters eventually find all 4 pieces of the vault key needed to open the vault. To no ones surprise the ATLAS hired thugs in Crimson Lance roll in and try to open the vault with the 3 (Tannis lied!??!?) only for THE DESTROYER to exit the vault and tentacle gently caress Steele like this is a cheap hentai anime right off the bat. Killing THE DESTROYER ends this game and seals the vault for 200 more years.

This game brings about PVE Raidbosses, crazy loot,

The game stars: Brick, Lilith, Mordecai, and Roland.

BL:TPS - 2014


The game shows Jack JOHN working to save Helios space station from the DAHL Corp's Lost Legion. Jack eventually becomes accustomed to murdering people and being a psychopath and changes into what we know as Handsome Jack by the end of the game when he opens the vault on ELPIS. The game ends with Lilith going NBA JAM on his face with the vault symbol and jack swearing up and down he will murder everyone on Pandora with THE WARRIOR. It ends with a cut scene FLASH FORWARD to a vault guardian at the end of BL2 saying they aren't yet finished, who saves Athena from being executed with bullet time by Lilith [after the events of BL2] for helping Jack unleash THE WARRIOR and the events that setup up Jack Handsome Jack going full Mortal Kombat chest punching Roland. Clappy's DLC shows how Jack got the H-source which had the source code and secret projects for the Hyperion Corp and how he Ended the CL4P-TP line I skipped the part where Jack used THE DESTROYER's eye as the Eye of Helios super laser

The game stars: Athena, Wilhelm, Nisha, CL4P-TP, with bonus guests Jack the Doppelganger Timothy, and Aurelia.

This game was literally Borderlands 2 in-space, lazers pew pew, oxygen butt slam Great game, mechanics, skill trees, it just didn't get sales to garner more support and DLC, which by the way CLAPTRAPS DLC is probably top 3 after and Tina Tina's . People were mad it was basically a new story with the same engine/textures, which they aren't wrong. Oh and it was full of Australian accents because moon people are obviously from Australia Yeah whatever, pew pew lasers zap pow zap pow. Also of note: This game shows the history of making of a Constructor bot, Jacks watch, and a bunch of other lore specific things like Terramorphous.

BL2 - 2012


This is where poo poo gets real. Loot and Shoot, with RAID BOSSES??!?! GAME GAME+ GAME++, GAME++smashface level difficulty??!? Answer: YES. Spend all the loving money, buy this game and all the DLC and don't leave your home for months. This game is the good poo poo

So 5 years after the TPS storyline, Handsome Jack now runs Hyperion, is opening the Pandora vault, and will probably kill everyone on pandora he doesn't like. Good story right. Guardian ANGEL contacts the vault hunters and leads them on their merry way, where they slowly encouter all the vault hunters from borderlands 1 in various places. The Crimson Raiders, led by Roland and Lilith, are the resistance fighting against Hyperion and Jack. They are holed up in a place called Sanctuary which is under assault from Helios station. Sanctuary happens to be an old DAHL mining ship, but Scooter can't get it airborne the engine is stalled.

The vault hunters meander around looking for Lilith, and Roland, who eventually task them with finding the vault key. A Train to Catch introduces us to Tina Tina (VA: Ashley Burch) and a Wilhelm who feigned protecting the vault key. They took Wilhelm's power core to Sanctuary where Guardian ANGEL told them to insert Wilhelm's power core into Sanctuary's shield generator. PLOT TWIST: Guardian ANGEL sabotaged Sanctuary and Helios station is now sending non-stop moonshots to turn Sanctuary into dust. Lilith decides to get eridium drunk and teleports Sanctuary to safety.

The Vault Hunters now go visit Wildlife Exploitation Reserve where they meet up with Mordecai and his bird, who jack poisons with Eridium and eventually kills. Mordecai understandably freaks out. Now they are off to another area where they meet Brick, who leads Slabs as the Slab King. At this point you've recruited everyone for this merry adventure and are off to stop Handsome Jack charging the vault key.

You recruit CL4P-TP who wants to kick it to Jack, and eventually stumble upon Guardian ANGEL who is Handsome Jack's daughter. He has seemingly emprisoned her for being a witch siren and is force feeding her eridium to supercharge the vault key so they can open it on a timeline before the next 195 years. Angel (VA:Britanni Johnson, who also looks just like her) wants you to kill her to stop Jack from opening the vault after a change of heart. After killing Angel to stop the key charging, Jack appears using his pocket watch cloaking device (TPS explains how he got it) kills Roland, and slaps some sort of control necklace onto Lilith to control her.

Jack uses Lilith to charge the key, the vault hunters attack Jack, and as they defeat him the key finishes charging and Jack releases THE WARRIOR while spewing blood everywhere. You take out THE WARRIOR using the bee and the sandhawk like a proper minmaxer, moonshot THE WARRIOR using a console, and let Lilith kill Jack (it's only right). Trying to destroy the vault key it activates and shows a galaxy full of planets and vault keys. There are more vaults than 1, cutscenes.

The game stars: Sal, zer0, Axton, Maya, with bonus guests Krieg, and Gaige.

This game is an 11/10, a difficult slaughter for sure, but drat if I can't say I didn't enjoy the masochism of playing Axton/others to OP8 All the DLC are great, except hammerlock, that guys DLC is a walkabout with witch doctors that piss you off.

TFTBL - 2014


So this is different, it's a sort of interactive movie story experience. Some choices impact how the story turns out. It started kind of slow, but it grew on me. I recommend dropping the or whatever this costs on sale, or simply watching a let's play on youtube for free, the story is actually pretty good. You can read a detail account here

I'm spoilering this because I don't know how many of you played this, but based on the movie trailer above showing Mustached Rhys, it could be pretty important to the BL3 storyline.

Essentially it boils down to Rhys getting turbofucked as a Hyperion lackey and trying to buy a vault key, which is a fake made by Fiona. Rhys stole the money from Hyperion and needs to get the money back. Rhys eventually sticks a Nakayama ID into his cyborg implant, which turns out to be HANDSOME loving JACK, [the cloned AI version Nakayama made in TPS]. So yada yada yada, they eventually team up and find a secret ATLAS lab for the GORTYS project where they assemble a child like robot who can open a 'travelling vault' when fully assembled. After the the quest to assemble the GORTYS goes wrong in every fashion possible, they assemble the robot and summon the vault. In the course of the slide show movie experience your choices let you assemble a crew to fight THE TRAVELLER who defends the vault. Some choices are integral to get the best possible story outcome and cut scenes. Anyhow eventually Rhys and Fiona open the eridium chest in the vault together and disappear.

Notes: Rhys fully owns ATLAS corp, stealing the deed from Jacks Office. Jack isn't dead [YOU SHOULD NEVER KILL JACK VIA CHOICES ITS WRONG AND YOU KNOW IT]. [Scooter dies, but you better play that CATCH A RIDE banner in space.


The game stars: Rhys and Fiona.

My only disappointment is that I soloed the whole thing, since there weren't that many people to play with at low levels that longer after the game's release.

I think Gearbox knows what makes these games good. I don't expect the shooting to be much better, but a studio with no experience at Borderlands was able to make a pretty good half-sequel to 2, so I think that bodes well. In the end, if it's as good as 2 but with new classes I'm probably going to be happy with it.

It's me, I'm hype for this game without knowing anything about it.

Here's the thing. BL3 won't have the same writers (bye bye Birch,) won't be developed by a completely different out-of-house team (you can thank 2K Australia for TPS,) and will be a necessary win for Gearbox to stay alive after the dismal showing of Battle, the Borne Identity. Gearbox's publisher is 2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive. This is not a few rich EA executives forcing Anthem out ahead of its timeline and dooming Bioware to be unable to make up for the poor showing of their previous game, it's the dudes who delayed RDR2 until it was decent enough to be released to journalistic praise. Or gently caress, remember Evolve? They actually let that thing go Free to Play and it was actually pretty fun when you got in with a group of friends! Whatever BL3 ends up being, I don't think it will compare to BL1, 2, or TPS and that's a good thing.

There's been rumors that the writing team that wrote Tales got picked up by Gearbox when Telltale was going tits up, so that plus Burch being gone should help.

Borderlands doesn't do the loot aspect part that well, there might be hundreds of different guns but 95% of them are hot garbage, legendary weapon drop rates are beyond a joke ranging from between 0.5% to 5% and even then not all of those legendary weapons are good.

Forcing people to use cheat engine to up the drop rates is a terrible solution to this problem, Diablo 3 shits top tier stuff at you for just showing up nowdays and guess what, it works like a charm, people love to be rewarded for poo poo not punished and forced to grind for hours or use external methods.

Which is something The Division 1 took, and The Division 2 is taking, proper hints from. Meanwhile, Anthem poo poo the bed so hard it's like they were trying to be as anti-good as possible. Borderlands had plenty of good loot times but where it really failed was giving the player impetus over how the rolls rolled and not balancing entire genres of gun to be any fun to play. This, again, is something The Division 2 is doing a damned fine job of and Diablo 3 eventually got right too. It takes work and dedication. No idea if Gearbox is ready to have that guy who understands all this but ... gently caress it, if I have to cheat engine Borderlands 3, so be it. I'll gladly call it poor design from the top of a mountain but I still want to play the damned game.

Edit: One more consideration to consider. PvP is a separately balanced pool in The Division 2, completely absent from Diablo 3, and likely an afterthought in Borderlands 3 just as much as it was in 1 and 2. As such, there is little-to-no reason not to allow the player to become an overpowered beast when given an adequate enough time to make a cool build. That and difficulty balancing (loving bullet sponges in NG+ and NG++ of BL2, what the gently caress guys?!) go a long-rear end way towards understanding the looty genre. ... ... gently caress I hope they get this right.

Edit2: And revamp the loving second wind. It rendered snipers 100% useless. gently caress.

Are we talking about the same Gearbox here? Like, the studio that listened to official forum grognards who wanted the loot as grindy and the higher difficulty levels as dumb as possible?

They'll fix the loot. And by that I mean since I fully expect this to be an online-required game as a service type deal, you won't be able to use Cheat Engine and savegame editors to fix drop rates and guns anymore

Maybe this time the final boss won't fall on the only orange rarity item I see the entire campaign and I'll get to use one

In TPS this is addressed you get them pretty frequently I found. They also introduced a 'glitch rarity' where these are essentially deep magazine purple guns that can get glitched on reload to be better than Legendary/Pearlescent. As an example, I was using essentially a deep mag Jakobs quad (3 shots) with a 90% chance to not use ammo when you fire using Timothy. It's about as hilarious as a pre-nerf conference call.

I'm curious to what ability the supposed new Siren will have, Lilith had Phase Blast which was just a huge AoE explosion, Maya had Phase Lock which immobilized a single target but could be modified to do all sorts of stuff, Angel had Phase Shift which let her control computers, it wasn't really clear, nobody knows what Steele could do as she died instantly to the Destroyer.

If she's melee then Phase Blade or something?

So that leak text about the new characters also showed up elsewhere, but it was longer, and had a section about how the new loot system would work - it said that there will now be gun parts which you combine into guns.

Could go a ways toward mitigating the RNG of the previous games and how one wrong number could super gently caress up an otherwise good weapon...?

https://gadgets.ndtv.com/games/news...on-leak-2013515

quote:

- Guns are reworked. You'll have changeable gun parts of various rarities/stats. You'll be able to alter the type of gun, the firing rate, the reload speed, the stability, and element as you find new parts.
- All elements returning except Slag, Laser, and Ice. New elements are rumoured and the only lead says "nuclear" is one of them.

Again, it’s a leak, could all be bullshit.

Slag weapons are the main reason I stuck to Maya when I dared venture into UVHM like a fool.

Slag disappearing makes sense it was part of the eridium refinement process Hyperion was doing on Pandora. It would be cool if different planets have their own exclusive weapon type. Pandora gets Slag, Elpis gets Cryo/Lasers, Promethia gets Nuclear.

Slag was the reason I used Salvador so long. Basically always had a Slagga in my offhand.
