Borderlands 3 Dated, Detailed
Things aren’t going overly well for Gearbox at the moment. From the botched announcement thanks to a myriad of technical issues to a leak that outed the release date of Borderlands 3, 24 hours earlier than intended.
Of course, leak or not, we have the official details. Borderlands 3 is arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PC (via the Epic Games Store) on September 13th, 2019. For PC players who don’t wish to use the Epic Games Store you can pick the game up on Steam approximately 6 months after the initial launch (Gearbox estimates April 2020).
We also learned a bit about the new cast of characters, from Vault Hunters Moze, Amara, FL4K, and Zane to the primary villains, The Calypso Twins, who aim to reunite the various Bandit clans… with nefarious intentions no doubt.
That’s not all though. The game will be the recipient of four different editions, detailed below
