Borderlands 3 is an action role-playing shooter video game which was released on Sept. 13, 2019, seven years after the second game was released and 10 years after the very first Borderlands was created in 2009.

Borderlands 3 is an amazing game; and a lovely game for any borderland lover. You start off by meeting the new vault hunters and learning about the new evil growing in Pandora. The four new vault hunters are Amara a siren, Zane an operative, Flak a Beastmaster, and Moze who is a retired soldier.

The new evil in the world, and the universe, is two uprising streamer siblings, Troy and Tyreen Calypso, and their army of psycho fans poised to fight a battle against Pandora’s corporations and people. The two siblings are after an ancient relic in a vault that would give them the power to take over the universe.

The new Borderlands 3 gameplay is really good. The controls are the same from previous games, but a lot has also been added game. Like the new characters a mentioned before, new ability trees and hundreds of new enemies.

The thing I most enjoy the most about this game, and I think other borderland fans would agree, is that the grind for new weapons and rare loot is better than ever. The grind has always been a part of borderlands; killing and creating destruction to find better loot to kill stronger enemies.

One thing I did not enjoy though was the way your health system works. In most games you have an option to heal yourself by finding some sort of medical device. Whether that is a med kit or some fruit you can eat.

But in Borderlands three you cannot carry health on you. You have to find it after killing enemies, which makes it hard to restore your health often and results in your death. It had amazing graphics and I loved the story line.

My final review for this game would be a 9/10. It was very enjoyable to play and I can’t wait to finish the rest of the story line.
