E3 2021 is here, and the Gearbox E3 showcase already impressed thanks to its recently revealed chaotic fantasy looter shooter Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.
The Summer Fest 2021 offered us the real big reveal. We would have liked to see more gameplay of the standalone Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, but Gearbox seems to be holding back. Pitchford appears to be all-in with the Borderlands movie.
We can't wait to get a better glimpse of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. In the meantime, we're getting big updates for Godfall, along with further hints of Homeworld 3 being in production. For plenty more games announced at E3, stay tuned for the Xbox + Bethesda Games showcase and the Square Enix Presents show on Sunday, June 13.
Stay tuned for all the announcements at the E3 2021 showcase. In the meantime, here's everything announced at the Ubisoft Forward E3 show, including extra content coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Rainbow Six Siege, and of course, Far Cry 6.
Let the countdown begin!
GET YOUR SNACKS NOW! This is your 1-hour warning that the Gearbox E3 Showcase will be starting in… well... 1 hour. ⚔🛡🦄💥📺https://t.co/mZveDyA48w📺https://t.co/7qRPdrM6He📺https://t.co/i0EByqBepn📺https://t.co/hGAcntF93k https://t.co/BcaAURXUgnJune 12, 2021
The Gearbox E3 2021 showcase will be hosted by none other than Randy Pitchford himself. As reported by VentureBeat, the Gearbox boss stated earlier this year that the company has "so many new IP concepts," after Gearbox and Embracer Group's $1.3 billion merger.
Let's not forget the Borderlands movie directed by Eli Roth, starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, and Jamie Lee Curtis. We're sure to get a teaser for the upcoming flick.

Sure, there's Borderlands, but Gearbox Publishing also helped push out games like Godfall, Risk of Rain 2, and more. Rumor has it we may see more details drop about Blackbird's Homeworld 3, after releasing a cinematic trailer back in 2019.
We're just ten minutes away from the (potential) magic show. Gearbox's showcase will 30 minutes long. What can they squeeze in? Only time will tell.
Here. We. Go. Let's go, Pitchford.
We start out with a trailer! An E3 exclusive.
Gearbox University sounds like a great opportunity. We're getting a fun recap of Gearbox's Borderland
We're also now seeing a lookback at the year with Gearbox's signature WHOMP music.
Randy Pitchford is walking us through the live set of the Borderlands movie, right in Budapest, Hungary. He's introducing us to director Eli Roth and actor Edgar Ramirez.
Nice Ocelot twirling skills, Eli. It seems like there will be proper Borderlands guns made specifically for the movie. We like authenticity.
Pitchford and Roth are going through all the actors for the movie, including Kevin Hart and Cate Blanchett.
We're seeing a lot of backstage. We expect its leading up to a world premiere at the end of it. Pitchford states the Borderlands movie is half-way through production.
Pitchford has left the chat! He's busy with the movie. Oh well, no magic tricks this time.
We're finally getting an update on the Homeworld franchise from Blackbird. Homeworld 3 is officially in production.
Hello, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. We've been waiting to hear more from you.
Kayla Belmore, senior producer of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, kicks things off. It is a stand-alone plot, meaning gamers that didn't play Borderlands don't need to play it. Wyverns, goblins and more will be some of the big enemies of the looter shooter. Bring on the D&D-style shooter!
A short clip of top-down game Tribes of Midgard. So far, everything we've seen before.
The co-op RPG will be available on PS5, PS4, and PC via Steam on July 27, 2021. Here's what to expect according to the developers:
Midgard is under siege from unwelcome visitors. Mythical creatures, deadly spirits, and gigantic brutes threaten to bring on Ragnarök—the end of the world!It’s up to you, a mighty Einherjar, to cut short your glorious feast in Valhalla and return to Midgard. There, you’ll need to become the ultimate Vikingand survive—even thrive—to save your village, and the world, from total destruction.
Luckily, you don’t have to brave it alone: your (mostly) fearless tribe of co-op companions will help you build up village defenses and find treasures through a vast, beautiful realm—allwhile doomsday ticks closer and closer.
But don’t let that stop your tribe from having the best apocalypse of your lives. “Surthrive” the Viking way inTribes of Midgard, a multiplayer, action-survival RPG of gigantic proportions.
Gearbox University has a list of jokes. We're not sure which joke we like more...
Godfall, one of the PS5's lauch games, is coming to PS4, with a free PS5 upgrade included. There will be new enemies, free updates, and a Lightbringer endgame.
We're getting glimpses of Homeworld 3 throughout the Gearbox showcase. It's not a prequel or remaster, its the next game in the franchise. Is this leading up to a big reveal at the end of the show? There's not much time left.
And, we're back behind the scenes with Pitchford. Hello there, Kevin Hart (playing Roland).
Apparently, we have no idea about Kevin Hart's roll as Roland. We're thinking there will be plenty of fun in the Borderlands movie with Hart starring in it. Hart/Roland now needs to lift weights.
The Gearbox E3 Showcase is coming to a close. The Summer Fest 2021 offered us the real big reveal. We would have liked to see more gameplay of the standalone Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, but Gearbox seems to be holding back. Pitchford appears to be all-in with the Borderlands movie.
