Some info is from that presentation other stuff you can actually find on the web. When i wrote my Gamescom hands on experience i was trying to be one of the first with all the new intel. But when other big websites started posting their Gamescom experience, none of the (loot) details came up. Just here is what you already know and we played another character and it was fun. Fans want to know more about the game, than the other character was also fun they could have read that from another website. We want new (hidden) details !!! AAAGHHH!!!
ok that’s out
Crafting was not discussed during the presentation.
They did show of a temp. inventory menu filled with 24 items. The max capacity was also 24, yes this is less than a full upgraded Borderlands backpack. But remember it’s just a temp menu to give a preview. 24 was probably the number they needed to have a screen full with pieces of Gear. Mr. Pitchford specifically said it was a temp. menu and that the retail game would get a badass design.
Randy Varnell posted on the old-GBX-Forums that he likes crafting.
I did a blog post about “will Battleborn have crafting” earlier this year when loot and shards were new topics. But we haven’t seen any indication of different minerals in the game. I had gotten feedback from GBX staff “interesting , and i like hyrule warriors”
Also no sign of a grinder yet. But Battleborn runs a modified Borderlands loot mechanic, so it could be possible.
