Borderlands 3 celebrates togetherness with psychedelic cinematic trailer

Love for my Sons and Daughters

Gearbox has dropped a new cinematic trailer for their upcoming multiplayer shooter Borderlands 3. The new and supremely trippy musical number features an ensemble cast of the sequel’s heroes and villains engaging in a psychedelic war of the roses. Quite literally, as the battlefield blooms with the love-inspiring flower.

To over-analyse the clip kind of takes away from the mind-bending beauty of it all, so it’s probably just best that you check the video out for yourself. Backed by the The Turtles’ 1967 classic “Happy Together”, it’s a nicely designed three minutes, combining the flower-power mentality of the ’60s with the nihilistic, explosive carnage that is the Borderlands trademark. Enjoy.


Borderlands 3 launches September 13 on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
