At PAX East 2019, Gearbox finally announced Borderlands 3. The Borderlands 3 trailer gave fans their first look at the game's four playable Vault Hunters, but Gearbox itself stopped short of providing specific details for the characters. However, thanks to past leaks that have since been corroborated by the Borderlands 3 PAX East trailer, we know some details anyway, including the name of the new melee-focused Siren.
The name of the melee-focused Siren seen in the Borderlands 3 trailer is Amara. This was originally revealed a couple of months ago through one of the various Borderlands 3 leaks that hit the internet well before the game was officially announced. Since other details in these leaks were confirmed by the Borderlands 3 reveal, we can safely assume that the Siren's name is Amara. Of course, Gearbox may still end up changing it before officially naming the character and detailing her abilities itself, but that remains to be seen.
The leaks also give us a better idea of what kind of abilities Amara is bringing to the table. Assuming the leaks are correct, Amara will be similar to Brick from the first Borderlands, and will have a ground-pound attack and the Phaselock ability. Amara will also be able to project holograms that will be capable of attacking enemies, instead of just being used as decoys.
Again, it's possible that this portion of the Borderlands 3 leaked information is inaccurate, but since everything else has been confirmed, it seems unlikely. Even so, we must still caution fans to take this news with a grain of salt until Gearbox itself offers specific details on the four playable characters.
Amara isn't the only Siren that will be featured in Borderlands 3. On the contrary, fan favorite Sirens like Lilith and Maya will also be in the upcoming looter-shooter. Not only that, but the Borderlands 3 villains The Calypso Twins are also Sirens. Or at least, one is a Siren and the other is a male with Siren-like powers.
More details on the Sirens, villains, and Amara should come sooner rather than later. More information on Borderlands 3 is expected to come on April 3, so fans shouldn't have to wait much longer.
Borderlands 3 is in development for unspecified platforms.
