The well known world of Pandora may be the home of the Borderlands franchise but this time, players will be visiting a new place in the upcoming Borderlands 3. The Borderlands official twitter account, greets us with a short clip that briefs players on the new planet of Promethea. This is a metropolitan city- planet that has a very futuristic and urban type environment to it. Returning players will know Promethea as the home to the Atlas Corporation.
Promethea is the planet where the infamous Eridian alien technology was first uncovered. The Atlas company somehow managed to reverse engineer this, to create some super powerful, high tech weaponry. Most of which, players will be able to get their hands on. This planet is, incidentally, also where us players will be meeting up with Rhys (The main protagonist of the Tales from the Borderlands spin off series), who is in full leadership of the planet and has got himself very busy waging a war against Maliwan (another manufacturer of great weaponry in the Borderlands franchise). More details of Promethea are available on the official Borderlands website.
Borderlands 3 is out on September 13 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It also launches with Stadia in November. The game will not have cross-platform play at launch, however Borderlands developers Gearbox Software promise to bring in the feature when they feel it’s practical.
