Gearbox Entertainment and Publishing showcased their upcoming lineup at E3 2021 along with a first-hand look at the shooting of the Borderlands movie.
Gearbox’s first year at E3 following the merger with Embracer Group (THQ Nordic, Deep Silver) saw a light-hearted presentation featuring comedic shticks between announcements, as well as President and CEO Randy Pitchford getting to run from trailer to trailer on the set of the upcoming Borderlands movie to meet the celebrities.
Starting things off, we got another look at Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which saw its announcement at Summer Game Fest a few days ago. A Borderlands spinoff, “Wonderlands is a high fantasy take on a looter shooter,” explained the voice of Tiny Tina, Ashly Burch. “If you’re a fan of Borderlands, you’ll probably recognise some fantasy elements inspired by Assault on Dragon Keep; the Borderlands 2 DLC that was beloved by the devs.”
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will launch on PlayStation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in early 2022.
Additionally, Gearbox took a second look at Tribes of Midgard, the co-op survival action-RPG launching July 27th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and PC which was also first shown at Summer Game Fest a couple of days ago.,
Finally getting into some new information, Gearbox announced that Godfall would be coming to PlayStation 4 for the first time alongside the Lightbringer Update on August 10th. Finally, after launching on PlayStation 5 and PC on November 12th, 2020, the game is seeing this large content update with the Fire & Darkness expansion.
Other than that, Homeworld 3 was discussed and is currently being developed with its release scheduled to take place during Q4 of 2022. Available for pre-order on Fig, Homeworld 3 returns to a franchise that hasn’t been utilized since 2003. Even though no new information was shown, it’s exciting to see a return to this franchise.
