There’s a lot of hype in the gaming community surrounding Gearbox Software’s upcoming Borderlands 3. A lot of fans are wondering what the gameplay, maps, and environments will be like in the game once Borderlands 3 releases. Initially seen in the Borderlands 3 E3 2019 trailer, Gearbox Software has now updated its website and posted more information regarding planet Eden-6.
Yesterday, Gearbox Software added more information about the game to the Borderlands website. Thanks to that post, we now know what Eden-6 planet and its inhabitants will be like in the game.
Described as “A backwater swampland of a planet,” Eden-6 is the home of the Jakobs clan in Borderlands 3. According to Gearbox Software:
“Eden-6 is covered by lush greenery and stagnant waters, dotted with occasional settlements and the rusted hulks of crashed spaceships. Civilization has never fully taken hold here, and indigenous dangers including ravenous Saurians and semi-sentient Jabbers effectively rule the planet. As if you didn’t already have enough to worry about, the Children of the Vault have a presence here as well.”
Back in June at E3 2019, we saw some footage of Eden-6 in the Borderlands 3 Moze Gameplay and New World Developer Interview. During the interview, Borderlands 3 developers Gearbox Software told fans more about Eden-6 and how the world will function in the core gameplay.
We learned that the planet Eden-6 is actually inspired by the Louisianna swamps. From what is described by Gearbox Software, it sounds like the planet and its environment will play a huge role in Borderlands 3 and its story. We also now know that Eden-6 will also feature occasional settlements in Borderlands 3 which will be an interesting thing to play through once the game releases.
Yesterday, we also learned that Borderlands 3 has now entered its Gold Phase thanks to a notification made by Gearbox Software over Twitter.
Borderlands 3 has a release date for September 13th, 2019, on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Borderlands 3 will also come in the Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Collector’s Edition editions.
