As we all know at this point, Borderlands 3 won't have players confined to the planet of Pandora. Instead, the player will use the new Sanctuary (now a space base) to explore the galaxy. The fourth planet to be detailed, after Pandora, Promethea and Eden-6, is Maya's home planet Athenas. In a recent Twitter post, Gearbox Software showed a short video clip of the planet accompanied by a text introduction to what players will find.

"A misty, tranquil planet that has recently attracted the wrong kind of attention. Athenas is mostly uninhabited, save for a sect of monks known as the Order of the Impending Storm who have made their home in the high peaks of the mountains. What secrets do they guard here, inside ancient walls that were built long before humans set foot on Athenas?"

Check out some images of the planet below.
