Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford showed off tech from the next Borderlands game during a presentation at the Game Developers Conference.
Pitchford said the content shown off was strictly to demo Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4 in its relation to Borderlands 3, and didn’t necessarily represent anything we’ll see in the final game.
Pitchford stressed this fact, prefacing his presentation by saying the things shown were “not a video game,” but rather a “technology demonstration.”
That’s not to say everything shown was destined for the cutting room floor. While the lion’s share of Pitchford’s presentation focused on the technology behind the signature Borderlands art style, there were some art assets promised for “a future video game.”
