The official website details the upcoming Vault Hunters as
Out to save the galaxy in Borderlands 3 are four all-new Vault Hunters, each more customizable than all their counterparts from previous games combined. Moze is a gunner who can digistruct and pilot a mech. Amara is a siren who can summon and smash enemies with ethereal fists. FL4K is a beastmaster whose pets prey upon bandits. And Zane is an operative who uses gadgets to cause chaos on the battlefield.
As far as the antagonists, we have had plenty of glimpses of them, but they have officially been confirmed as the Calypso twins. Based on previous trailer footage we can only assume that they are the ones leading the charge of the Cult of Calypso.
We have also been continued to be teased that this will be worlds, rather than a single planet, on Pandora. The extent of this has not been detailed, however even the Collector’s Edition includes “a cloth galaxy map.” Speaking of the Collector’s Edition, which costs a whopping $329.99, there are four editions of the game and a season pass which suggests to include four future DLC pieces.
Borderlands 3 is scheduled to release on September 13th, 2019 on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Epic store will have a six-month exclusivity deal on PC.
