Definitely bearing the nature of the Borderlands 3 microtransactions, Randy Pitchford returned to Twitter to illustrate the post-launch plans of Gearbox Software for the endgame of his highly anticipated looter shooter.
In response to a community user who asked for clarification on the nature of Borderlands 3’s future DLCs and the chances of new characters arriving , Gearbox’s boss explained that “for the moment we focus on the main game, but my thoughts in this regard it is better to use expansions to expand the capabilities of the already present Crypt Hunters, rather than starting over with new characters. The data in our possession seem to support this”.
From the words of Randy Pitchford, we learn so that within the four Borderlands 3 DLCs , most likely, we will not find new characters but upgrades and additions for the four protagonists of the main adventure. An approach, the latter, which goes against the trend compared to the strategy adopted by Gearbox’s top management with the expansions that have marked the post-launch offer of the previous chapters of the series.
At this point, we just have to remind you that Borderlands 3 will be released on September 13th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
We are focused on the main game for now, but my feelings are that it might be better for us to put our time into expanding what the existing vault hunters can do and how interesting their future growth is instead of adding new ones to start over with. Data seems to support this.
