(Pocket-lint) - Gearbox officially revealed Borderlands 3 while at PAX East but now it's also announced the on-sale date. It's sooner than you think, with Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions hitting the streets on 13 September. 

A new trailer is also now available, to celebrate the release date announcement. You can watch it above. 

After the short but sweet Mask of Mayhem teaser, this new "official announce trailer" is a bombardment of gameplay detail at breakneck speed. The main takeaways of which are brilliantly varied new environments to wreak havoc in, a fascinating cast of new and old characters and the promise of "over one billion guns". 

That's a lot of guns.

It seems that Borderlands 3 includes everything from desert landscapes to large urban sprawls and even swamps to adventure around in. Plenty of weird and wonderful vehicles will be on offer to tear up the land and there's also bots, mechs and much more besides.

It's worth noting that the PC release of Borderlands 3 will be an Epic Games Store exclusive, much to the annoyance of Steam diehards.

As well as Borderlands 3, Gearbox and 2K Games have released a remastered version of the original Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. It has Ultra HD visuals for PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC, while all the DLC is now included.

The fun doesn't stop there: the games in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-sequel) also get upgraded graphics for all formats, adding Ultra HD for compatible platforms.
