Borderlands 3: Sirens Are “Very Important” In The Game

Somewhere between the sassy robots and trillions of guns, Borderlands has built a respectably complex world. A big part of that are the Sirens, super-powered women given mysterious tattoos and powers. Gearbox’s narrative managing producer Randy Varnell promises they’ll play a major role in Borderlands 3 as well.

“The Sirens are a very, very important theme of this game,” Varnell told GameSpot. “You’ve got Lilith, you’ve seen Maya returning, and we know Amara, the brand new playable Siren, is there. The villain of Borderlands [Commandant Steele] is dead. She’s dead dead. She’s gone. Angel is dead dead. She’s gone. There’s three more [Sirens] unaccounted for.”

In Borderlands lore, only six Sirens can exist in the universe at any given time. Between Lilith, Maya, and Amara–all playable characters in the main games–we know about three of them. Steele and Angel took two of the additional spots, but Varnell’s comments suggest that when one Siren dies, another appears somewhere in the universe. That would mean there are two more relatively new Sirens, and one remaining that may have been a Siren for quite a while now.

“I would just say for all the fans out there: we are absolutely sticking to that canonical lore,” Varnell continued. “There are only six Sirens in the universe at any one time. And in this game, we’ll delve a little bit more into how all that happens and what’s going on, and we’ll ask some interesting questions. I don’t want to spoil anything because there’s so much fun to be had there.”

Borderlands 3 releases on September 13 for PC via the Epic Store, PS4, and Xbox One. If you’re still on the fence about who you might want to claim as your class, read up on all we know about the four playable characters. Check out our pre-order guide for more details.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
