Knowledge suggests DLC characters aren’t the best way ahead.
Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has mentioned that Borderlands three might not add new Vault Hunters to the sport in post-launch DLC.
Speaking to a fan on Twitter, who requested if there will probably be DLC hunters, Pitchford mentioned “My emotions are that it is likely to be higher for us to place our time into increasing what the prevailing vault hunters can do and the way attention-grabbing their future development is as a substitute of including new ones to start out over with.”
We’re centered on the principle recreation for now, however my emotions are that it is likely to be higher for us to place our time into increasing what the prevailing vault hunters can do and the way attention-grabbing their future development is as a substitute of including new ones to start out over with. Knowledge appears to assist this.

He added that “Knowledge appears to assist this.” Presumably that knowledge is drawn from Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, which each added extra playable characters in DLC. “My evaluation of the information suggests the overwhelming majority of gamers would profit from enlargement to current characters forward of creation of recent characters,” he continued in response to a different Twitter person. This implies that the majority gamers might persist with their characters long-term, fairly than change them with new hunters.
Borderlands 2 launched Gaige the Mechromancer and Krieg the Psycho as DLC characters, whereas The Pre-Sequel made fan favorite villain Good-looking Jack playable (properly, form of. He is a doppelganger.) Whereas all of those characters have gone down properly with Borderlands followers, evidently the plan, no less than for now, is for the brand new recreation to stay with Amara, Zane, Fl4k, and Moze. The thought of them getting addition talent bushes in DLC is a tempting one, although.
