The Gearbox Entertainment’s E3 2021 Showcase included Tiny Tina’s Wonderland and a development update on Homeworld 3.
Randy Pitchford introduced the Gearbox E3 2021 Showcase from the set of the upcoming Borderlands film. This rather self-congratulatory exercise between the Gearbox head honcho, actor Édgar Ramírez, and director Eli Roth revealed little about the film but we expect it will keep the flames of hype alight for fans. Randy certainly seemed happy with his life.
The showcase was led by another look at Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the new fantasy-themed Borderlands spin-off starring Ashley Burch, Andy Samberg, and Will Arnett. The trailer doesn’t feature gameplay, but there’s a definite pleasure in seeing traditional Western fantasy aesthetics infiltrated by the lurid aggression of the Borderlands franchise.
From Gearbox’s publishing arm, a polished PlayStation 4 port of Godfall was confirmed for August release, and there was more footage from Tribes of Midgard. Norsfell’s ten-player co-op action-RPG channels some colourful and chaotic Viking energy in the same way Assassin’s Creed Valhalla didn’t. It’s due next month on PC and PlayStation.
The showcase also featured development updates from the team working on sci-fi RTS sequel, Homeworld 3.
And, erm, yeah. That was it. Here’s that recap in full and another chance to see Randy rub shoulders with Kevin Hart.
