The gameplay reveal for Borderlands 3 also unveiled details regarding two main characters’ skill trees. Let’s take a look at them.

It’s been a (very) long time coming for Borderlands fans, but we finally have a new true sequel (because the Pre-Sequel doesn’t count, obviously) in Borderlands 3. It sure did take series creator, Gearbox Software, long enough to finally lift the lid, and we now have Borderlands 3‘s release date locked in, alongside a brand new gameplay trailer, which you can see below.

We’ve seen quite a bit of the game’s world by this point, as well as plenty when it comes to Borderlands 3‘s characters. Now, by way of ECHOcast, a free Twitch extension that allows you to score free and exclusive loot while watching Borderlands 3 streamers, we have an insight into the class tree for two characters: Amara and Zane.

In this breakdown of Borderlands 3 skill trees, we’ll take a look at Zane’s Hitman, Under Cover, and Double Agent skills, alongside Amara’s Brawl, Mystic Assault, and Fist of the Elements skills. Check them out below, thanks to the folks at PCGamesN.
