The tease we have had for Borderlands 3 is over as the new trailer is here as promised by Gearbox. A new trailer fresh off the heels of E3 and just a day before SDCC kicks off and… it is just more of a tease. Not in the way of something we will be seeing in the near future, outside of the game, but it is more or less a showing of the fun we can have in Borderlands 3 when playing with friends. September 13th will have us all doing that, sure, but I am going to guess it is not going to look as fun as it all does here. Why is that? Because this is all a nice rendered trailer that just uses the characters and enemies in the game to show things off in a flashy way.
That is not to say that this is not a fun way to look at Borderlands 3, but it is not much in the way of actual gameplay or how the experience will be. Unless this is all some subtle way to let us know that they are going to make sure we get cross-platform play at some point. It will not be at launch, sadly, but PS4, Xbox One, and PC gamers will be able to play Borderlands 3 with each other at some point. If only that was made clearer here and if it was the actual point of the trailer besides just moving product. I am sure this is the main point besides getting the hardcore fans all riled up for the game yet again.

How do you feel about this new trailer and were you expecting to see more for Borderlands 3 than this? Did this get you ready to buy the game, if you have not already, or did it let you down to the point of waiting longer? Do you think this is a way for the team to let us know the cross-platform play will be coming or is that just me making a point out of this new trailer?
