With little over a month to go before Borderlands 3 officially arrives on PC (via the EGS), PS4, and Xbox One, many are no doubt excited for the upcoming threequel to the original looter shooter. Developer Gearbox Software is likely aware of this, as it recently revealed trailers for each character, including the long-excluded FL4K the Beastmaster, as well as officially unveiling the action skills and trees for FL4K.
While the new trailers are good and all, many are ready to go hands-on with some Borderlands 3 content, another fact that Gearbox appears to be aware of. The developer has officially released some interactive tools that let players go in and check out the skill trees of the new vault hunters. For many, this will be a great way to plan ahead of launch for not only which character to choose but how to spec them.
For example, those excited by the recent reveal of FL4K may choose to see how builds of his Hunter, Master, and Stalker trees go. Each skill tree, Borderlands 3 players will find, is tied to one of his pets, namely Spiderant, Skag, and Jabber, respectively. Then, players could choose between a more defensive or control-version of Zane the Operative, an AOE or more focused combat version of Amara the Siren, or even a Mech Bear-focused or damage-dealing Moze the Gunner.
The possibilities are endless, so this tool will definitely come in handy. Of course, there will always be those who want to save the experience of speccing a character on the fly, but for those who prefer to get it right the first time, here is the tool to each characters interactive skill tree: Zane the Operative, Moze the Gunner, Amara the Siren, and FL4K the Beastmaster
It's worth mentioning that the large amount of hype behind Borderlands 3 has been met with an equal amount of controversy. The latest #boycottborderlands3 trend on Twitter arose after publisher Take-Two Interactive issued copyright strikes against YouTuber SupMatto (and reportedly sent two investigators to his house) after he used thumbnails that were practically public in a video.
Borderlands 3 launches September 13 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
