Borderlands 3 Dev Accidentally Streams 4 Hours Of Gameplay
In one of the funniest leaks to happen in recent memory, one of the most famous game devs in the world streamed a huge chunk of their highly anticipated game. Gearbox Software is ramping up to the September 13th release of their highly anticipated third entry in the Borderlands series. While Borderlands 3 is only a month away, some lucky fans got an early look at Borderlands 3 gameplay footage due to a convenient error.
It appears that Gearbox Software was looking to test the social and streaming features of Borderlands 3 by running a stream through Twitch using a channel called 0i0ziesklofy4skgvi49if7xy. Obviously, this was used as a throwaway channel name used for tests, and the stream was even titled, “Today we make stuff work! Hooray!” Despite their best efforts to remain unnoticed, some fans found the stream and started posting screenshots before Gearbox was able to shut it down.
The footage showed off the early goings of the game and featured the character select screen, Marcus Kincaid’s intro cutscene, FL4K’s skill trees, and the return of Colleen Clinkenbeard’s Lilith character. FL4K brings the new Beastmaster class to the game, though we haven’t heard much about it. Apparently, there will be a skill that lets him control certain creatures in battle. You will even be able to get certain abilities from creatures like Jabbers. Controlling a Jabber gives FL4K 5% more movement speed and can command Jabbers to attack, which will prompt them to throw toxic waste at the enemy.
All in all this footage looks super impressive and we can’t wait to play Borderlands 3 when it comes out on September 13, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, and PC.
