What To Change For Borderlands 3

Borderlands 2 is a smash hit; selling 2.73 MM units to date while receiving a 93% here and holds a metacritic score of 91%. Some, if not all, of the critiques of the previous game in the series were corrected with Borderlands 2; compelling story, more variance of weapons, crank the humor up even more and a few others. As great as Borderlands 2 truly is, there are new things that need to be built upon to make Borderlands 3 be the best that it can be.

I thought they said they wasn't planning to make borderlands 3?

SOD_Delta1377d ago

You know it's inevitable. I want a better Loot system. I didn't like the whole golden keys thing. I hope that doesn't return. More unique vehicles is welcomed.

RedSoakedSponge1376d ago

all i know is if they do make a new borderlands, i would really like a fully customisable character.

seems like a pretty good evolution

The sequel might not be mentioned yet from Gearbox yet, but with a game that has already sold 2.7million copies since its launch on Sept 18th ($162,000,000 in sales) and the no-brainer for publishers to want another title in a highly successful franchise. It will happen, just a matter of when...

...maybe a launch title for the new xbox/ps?

The_Infected1377d ago

Yea kinda what i figured but they do let go of big things sometimes for new future IP.

IGW_Fobia1377d ago

@Marcus - you know, for once I would actually be okay with more Borderlands games...unlike most franchises

They said they are not working on Borderlands 3 right now which makes plenty of sense seeing as they are working on DLC for the 2nd game still and they seem to be planning a ton of it.

A 3rd game will happen but it will be next gen and I would bet it would probably even be a few years into next gen so I would not expect it anytime soon but It's gonna happen.

I would kinda like to see them make a Borderlands MMO. Basically plays just like Borderlands except much bigger and with more people. Would be awesome.

BitbyDeath1377d ago

I haven't played 2 yet (waiting for the price to come down on PSN).

But i hope the vehicles are improved, they were horrible in the first.

They're still boring as ever.

For Borderlands 3 the only thing I want is for Gearbox to learn how to make the game fun once you hit level 50, there's absolutely nothing to do at 50 but farm the same 3-4 bosses over and over for the same loot.

See you in 2014 then. Sales and ratings are high.. it won't drop for a long time.

-Underwater environments! (sunken anything: ships, cities, new creatures) :D or at least...being able to swim? (since underwater in my mind doesn't come out with a whole lot of variety.

I forget what else I thought of that would make the next Borderlands a game I'd buy...

I don't really like the golden keys thing as someone else stated either. It's cool to get something nice from a chest like that but you have to be active on twitter and so much other crap. It's nice to get something that helps out at that level too but as I've noticed there are NO chests in Sanctuary other than itself.

If they ever do ANYTHING like this they better make a way to circumvent this by providing a solution in-game (as I have read and been curious about bringing up another use for eridium). Still though...I'm not a fan.

Individual Loot is a MUST. Its a deterrent when playingin random games or opening your game up.

Weapon customisations for altering and upgrading stats kinda takes away from wanting to find and compare different guns. A good idea, perhaps make the customisations limited to aesthetic changes, but nothing which ruins the "gazillion guns" appeal.

New outfits would be cool too.

GREW50ME1376d ago (Edited 1376d ago )

Yeah, I forgot individual loot. Yup, the current loot system really ruins the online experience completely. Better loot in multiplayer? Who cares when the host just ninja'd it all away? May as well stick to single player and never risk losing the drops.

admiralvic1376d ago

You're 100% wrong. The current loot system is acceptable, but what ruins the online is dupers. Given enough time (I think we hit it... already though), the simple fact that virtually everyone knows you can save yourself hours of work by asking for X gun really cheapens the system as a whole.

Really whats the point in farming, looting, or giving a damn about drops if people are more than willing to constantly make a copy of it? I really don't see the issue with close friends, but Borderlands 2 is out of hand with these people making legendary items all but common. Whats worse is that they also detour people from playing online too. I saw a couple of people that farmed Terra though online games because they wanted the praise, but not everyone wants their challenges done for them. Sure Terra isn't insanely powerful, but he's a lot more fun with 2 - 4 people and purple gear than The Bee / CC / BM / whatever.

MeatAbstract1376d ago

I figured they'd be building up to some sort of MMO. The structure is already there.
