Paul Sage, the creative director of Borderlands 3, gave a lot of details about the upcoming looter shooter.
Weapons will be more in-depth. The example used was grenades will not only have one attribute. Instead of having an explosive that bounces, you can have one that bounces until it sticks onto an enemy.
Class mods are revamped to add more skills and layers to characters. Along with artifacts that will improve aspects like movement for a more fluid and faster-paced experience.
Endgame content involves the guardian system, an endless progression system full of new skills and skins. Any character on your account will gain some of these rewards.
Main bosses will have multiple phases for grander battles.
The level cap at launch will be 50.
Other systems from the previous titles return like duals and golden keys. Sage shied away from a question about other forms of PvP, so a possibility of expanding onto different ways to fight other players.
