Earlier this month Gearbox Software released a teaser image for a reveal happening at PAX East on March 28, which seems to be Borderlands 3. This looks like good news for fans of the Borderlands series, and something else has been discovered which also looks promising.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition has been spotted on the website of ratings board ESRB, coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Here's what the official description has to say on the game:

"This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a Vault Hunter (i.e., treasure hunter) on a quest to uncover an alien vault on the planet of Pandora. Players explore an open-world environment and interact with characters, while completing mission objectives. Combat missions require players to use futuristic firearms (e.g., acid pistols, electrical shotguns, grenade launchers) to kill human bandits, alien creatures, and robotic sentries. Battles are frenetic and accompanied by screams of pain, gunfire, and large explosions. Human enemies emit large splashes of blood when shot and killed; some attacks may result in dismemberment and/or decapitation."

"The game contains frequent instances of mature humor, sometimes suggestive/sexual in nature: radio advertisements for male-enhancement products (e.g., "Do you ever feel like you are firing blanks?"); dialogue and text about body parts and other innuendo (e.g., "Really 'preciate you takin' a poke at that...uh, the system, not my mom"; "And pop! Went the weasel. I like it when things pop."). The words "sh*t" and "a*shole" are heard in the game."

In-game purchases are also rated, and this would be a good time for this version to be announced, since it's been a decade since the original first came out in 2009.

Perhaps we'll see this at PAX?
