About the Vault Hunters
Borderlands 3 will feature 4 playable characters at launch. Each Vault Hunter has its own skills and abilities. The following classes have been presented; a Soldier, Siren, Assassin, and Hunter Class. As of December 2018, all characters are out of Alpha state except for the Hunter Class.
Unlike previous Borderlands games, it seems like the Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3 will not have one but multiple action skills.
As seen in the announcement trailer, it will also be possible to do a slide. I don’t know if this ability is possible for all the Vault Hunters or if each of them has a different playing style like the Battleborn characters.
The playable character will occasionally react to things (happening) in the world (source).
The previous two Borderlands games, Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel, both had 6 playable characters. The ending of Borderlands the Pre-Sequel contained a cinematic that took place after the events of Borderlands 2. In this sequence ‘the Watcher’ mentioned that a war is coming and that the heroes would need a lot of Vault Hunters for this upcoming event. Will Gearbox Software continue the tradition of 4 starter heroes and expand the character roster with multiple DLC heroes or will they go nuts and have more Vault Hunters than ever before? The previous mentioned Borderlands games added 2 new vault hunters through DLC and the publisher, 2K Games, mentioned that they want to continue adding recurrent consumer transactions (aka microtransactions).
