Watch gameplay from Borderlands 3

Fresh from E3

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

Gearbox Software showed off a slice of Borderlands 3 gameplay at E3 this year.

This ten-minute slice shows the player character infiltrating the Children of the Vault’s Holy Broadcast Center and blowing through enemies. It culminates with a boss battle against a beefcake named Mouthpiece, who lives in a palace of subwoofers.

The Children of the Vault are a new, cult-like group whose motto is “Like, subscribe, and obey.” We played as Moze, a gunner who is one of Borderlands 3’s four new characters.

“There are noticeable improvements,” said reviewer Sarah LeBoeuf when she saw the game in May, “but there’s also just a lot of good, old-fashioned shooting every enemy in sight with an increasing arsenal of weapons and picking up every bit of treasure you can find along the way. In other words, it’s Borderlands.”

Check out the gameplay for yourself, and don’t forget to subscribe to Polygon Guides on YouTube for more gameplay from E3 2019 and beyond.
