After a healthy bout of teasing, Gearbox has officially unveiled the latest instalment in its much-loved loot-and-shooter series, Borderlands 3.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and creative director Paul Sage took to the stage during PAX East earlier today to unveil the long-awaited follow-up.

That unveiling took the form of an appropriately action-packed first trailer, offering a whistle-stop tour of some of Borderlands 3's stunning new environs, its charismatic cast of new and returning characters, plus a saxophone solo, because why the hell not.

Oh, and Gearbox is promising over a billion guns this time around. Including one with legs.

There's no word on platforms or even a sniff at a release date for Borderlands 3 just yet, but the beneath-video YouTube blurb notes that more information will be revealed on April 3rd. I'll update this story if anything more comes to light as press releases begin disseminating around the internet - otherwise I guess we'll all be twiddling fingers until next Wednesday.
