Borderlands 2 was available for free from Epic Games almost two years ago. Now the successor is also available for free download for a few days. The story of Borderlands 3 begins on the planet Pandora, said to house chambers of riches once built by the extraterrestrial civilization of the Eridians.
Borderlands 3 is the fifth game in the Borderlands universe. Playing either alone or in groups of up to four people, players can choose a character from one of four classes and complete various main and side missions. These are awarded by non-player characters (NPCs) and on so-called bounty boards and promise the player not only financial rewards and equipment, but also experience points. When the player reaches a certain level, he can use these experience points to improve his character’s abilities.
There were four characters at launch: Amara the Siren; Moze the soldier; Zane, the agent; and FL4K, a robot and beastmaster. Unlike previous Borderlands games, each character in this installment can unlock three unique abilities, but only one, except for Zane, can be equipped at a time. The agent has the option to forego their grenade mod and equip another ability instead.
The player gains access to a spaceship called Sanctuary III, which serves as a central point of contact between missions. Here the player can, among other things, store his equipment, obtain new items from vending machines or a golden chest, interact with the crew members or head for other planets. However, a map of the game world allows the player to fast travel to previously visited locations from anywhere, which is also possible with a vehicle obtained via a catch-a-ride station.
Besides completing missions, the main purpose of the game is to kill enemies, explore the open game world, collect experience points and various equipment. The character uses a variety of weapons, which are divided into the classes of assault rifles, submachine guns, pistols and revolvers, shotguns, sniper rifles and bazookas. They differ in values such as damage, reload speed or rarity.
In contrast to many other shooter games, it is not possible to improve the weapons; rather, better and better material can and should be found by defeating bosses or by finding special boxes. In addition to the normal weapons, of which a maximum of four can be used in turn, the player is free to use grenades, protective shields serve as a buffer before life energy drops due to damage. In addition, two different player attribute improving artefacts can be equipped. [Quelle: Wikipedia]
