Check this great video out!  30 minutes of our very own Tiny and another dev talking about the mechanics of the new BL map in detail.  Extra awesome!

To me, this is pretty OMG.  I don't want to say I'm bored with the current borderlands but after 3 years (including pre-release testing) I'm definitely ready to change it up.

Some people will dismiss it as being 'too EOTM' but honestly it feels more 'WAR Black Craig' to me.  LOTS of new mechanics to learn, which will reward folks who take the time to learn them and have clever ideas about how to use them.  *cough*Fog*cough*

BTW there's a new siege weapon in this video too!

 

A *little* more detail

This TenTonHammer interview has some more details in it.  For example: changes to escorting yaks, complete with a Yak Makeover cheesecake shot.

Is that the desert one they revealed at the end of the pvp tournament ? ( cant watch video now as twitch lately lags my house internet and everyone on it  ). Since that desert one looks epic and really fun.

Ooh, this is exciting. I especially like how they're making objectives matter in a more concrete way, e.g. holding a pass to give your allies a shortcut and block enemy forces. And of course the new environments are gorgeous. 10/10 would cap all the Air shrines and make a paratrooper havoc squad.

@LordMelchom - I think it's the same zone but this one has a LOT of detail.  30 mins of devs showing all the keeps and towers, talking about the new zone mechanics, etc.  IIRC we just saw a brief trailer for the zone earlier.
