Borderlands 3 Director’s Reduce features a deleted scene that may have made it a greater recreation
The Director’s Reduce DLC for Borderlands 3 provides quite a lot of fine details, together with a raid boss, a brief collection of aspect missions, and a set of behind-the-scenes bonuses like bloopers and reduce content material. Amongst that reduce content material is the animatic for a cutscene that did not make it into the completed recreation, presumably for causes of price range or time.
What cutscene’s that? Solely a funeral for one of many Borderlands 2 protagonists that may have given her a send-off frustratingly absent from the precise story, in addition to making one of the hated new characters launched in Borderlands 3 appear much more likable.
After watching the animatic above it is baffling this was reduce reasonably than maybe being trimmed or in any other case altered to squeeze it in. Ava’s seen because the Scrappy-Doo of Borderlands by plenty of its fandom, however with this one scene she grew to become relatable. And in addition to giving Maya a goodbye reasonably than speeding previous her loss of life so quick it appeared suspicious, the funeral provides the remainder of the forged a humanizing second—even Krieg’s there. A part of the enchantment of Borderlands 2 is that what initially looks like only a goofy action-comedy filled with one-liners really lands some emotional beats as soon as the story will get going. Seeing that Borderlands 3 may have been comparable is gutting.
Anyway, that is extra proof that the most effective elements of Borderlands 3 are all hidden in its DLC.
