Who are the Borderlands 3 characters? Gearbox has revealed the roster of playable Borderlands 3 characters for its upcoming looter shooter, but who else can we expect to see when the Sanctuary sets sail from Pandora this September? From Claptrap to Moxxi and even the false promise of Handsome Jack (he really is dead) – the gang are uniting to bring down the Calypso twins.
Borderlands 3 will tackle the uprising of streamer siblings Troy and Tyreen Calypso, and their army of psycho fans poised to fight a battle against Pandora’s corporations. They have a new army, called The Children of the Vault (COV), which has been turned into an exciting new Borderlands 3 weapon class and seems to pivot on, and parody, the power and responsibility that real-life streamers have.
With the villains and their marauding psycho army in place, what other Borderlands 3 characters will be braving the battle against the Calypso twins? We’ve listed all the new Borderlands 3 confirmed and playable characters, including the return of a few favourites.
Borderlands 3 confirmed characters
Leading the uprising to fight the good fight, Lilith will be reprising her role as the no-nonsense siren and she’s come a long way since the initial reveal trailer, which saw her crawling across the floor without her signature tattoos.
Joining Lilith are the below confirmed Borderlands 3 characters that feature throughout the launch trailer.
- Tiny Tina
Borderlands 3 playable characters
There are four new Vault Hunters available in Borderlands 3 as playable characters, with the news an older Tiny Tina is confirmed to have a combat role alongside them at some point in the game. The launch trailer also showed us Brick and Mordecai, who appear as playable characters in Borderlands and NPCs in Borderlands 2 and could possibly be involved in combat.
The new Borderlands 3 playable characters include FL4K (Beastmaster), Amara (Siren), Moze (Gunner) and Zane (Operative). The Borderlands 3 Vault Hunters have their own individual skill trees built around their classes and Gearbox has already created an in-depth Borderlands 3 cosplay guide.
The Borderlands 3 release date is fast approaching and if you’re excited by the new Borderlands 3 characters and hopeful new Vault Hunters, then this might tickle your fancy.
