About Borderlands 3

Gearbox Software and 2K Games have released Borderlands 3, an action role-playing first-person shooter video game. It’s the fourth installment in the core Borderlands series, following 2012’s Borderlands 2.

Borderlands 3 was published for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 13th, 2019.

In single-player or multiplayer, players take one of four classes to complete quests and side missions. Enemies often drop weapons and equipment that can be equipped once they are killed.

As the player earns experience, more skills become available. 

Borderlands 3 main story

Borderlands 3 events are set seven years after Borderlands 2. Amara the Siren, Moze the Gunner, FL4K the Beastmaster, and Zane the Operative are the first four playable characters and Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3.

As new recruits, the Vault Hunters join Lilith’s Crimson Raiders on a mission to investigate the Children of the Vault and their leaders, the Calypso twins. They are suspected of possessing the long-lost Vault Map. 

The Crimson Raiders and their allies board the Sanctuary III ship after retrieving the Vault Map and travel beyond Pandora to other worlds around the galaxy to claim the Vaults they possess before the Calypsos may take their power. 

Is Borderlands 3 optimized for single-player?

Some people said that previous Borderlands games weren’t designed for single-play and that some objectives were overly challenging.

The same people also questioned If it might be the same case with Borderlands 3.

The cooperative gameplay in Borderlands games is well-known. As a result, many people wonder if Borderlands 3 can be played solo.

Yes, you can completely play Borderlands 3 on your own and enjoy a fantastic single-player experience.

We never had any issues with the hard settings. If you finish all of the side missions, you will get enough experience points to ensure that you are always at the appropriate level, if not a little overpowered. 

NPCs and returning characters

A number of characters from previous Borderlands games make special appearances.

Lilith, Claptrap, Maya, Zer0, Brick, and Mordecai, who were previously playable Vault Hunters, now appear as NPCs.

Another example is Aurelia, who was one of the playable characters in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, also appears as a boss. 

Marcus, Tina, Miss Mad Moxxi, and her daughter Ellie, hunter Sir Alistair Hammerlock, Tannis, Mr. Torgue, and Eridium trader Crazy Earl are among the NPCs who have returned.

In the game’s DLC content, playable Vault Hunters from prior games, such as Timothy Lawrence from The Prequel and Gaige, Krieg, Axton, and Salvador from Borderlands 2, appear as NPCs.
