Developer Gearbox recently confirmed its fall/winter DLC roadmap for Borderlands 3, which combines both free and paid-for post-launch support.

Gearbox has been sharing a lot of details on the upcoming loot-shooter as of late, and the game was recently shown off at Gamescom 2019. Check out the latest trailer for the game here.

While the game has only been confirmed for current-generation formats, Gearbox has revealed that it has considered bringing it to the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett. We’ve also gotten a look at four new Vault Hunters for Borderlands 3: Amara, FL4K, Moze, and Zane.

Even if the game doesn’t come to next-generation systems, it’ll still look the dogs’ bollocks on the PS4, as it’ll support Sony’s PS4 Pro system with various enhancements.

Finally, you should definitely check out our hands-on preview for Borderlands 3 to see how it’s shaping up. Fortunately, Gearbox has revealed that the series probably isn’t going to end any time soon, despite the fact Borderlands 3 is going to wrap up a number of narrative elements.

The Borderlands series has sold over 45 million units as of August 2019 since its launch a decade ago.
