Borderlands 3 Arrives On Steam
This is great news for fans who have been looking forward to this arriving on Steam.
It’s the day you’ve been waiting for, Vault Hunters! Borderlands 3 is now available on Steam, giving even more PC players the opportunity to shoot and loot their way across the exotic worlds of the Borderlands universe. Better still, Borderlands 3 is available at the following introductory prices on Steam for a limited time*:
Early adopters on Steam can also download the Gold Weapons Skin Pack for free from now until April 1, 2020 at 10am PDT by navigating to the Borderlands 3 DLC product page on Steam and adding the pack to their accounts**.
Today also marks the launch of PC Cross-Play between Steam and the Epic Games Launcher. Thanks to some exciting new SHiFT matchmaking functionality, Borderlands 3 PC players can add friends to their Friends Lists, join co-op parties, and play together online regardless of which PC platform each player is using. As mentioned during its PAX East panel, Gearbox also plans to roll out additional PC Cross-Play features – such as the ability to mail weapons between PC platforms – in the coming weeks.
The Steam version of Borderlands 3 includes all of Borderlands 3’s updates and bonus add-on content to date, including Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite. Those who purchase the Borderlands 3 Season Pass or Super Deluxe Edition can also immediately access the first paid campaign expansion, Moxxi’s Heist of The Handsome Jackpot.
Additionally, on March 26, Super Deluxe Edition owners and Season Pass holders across all platforms can dive into Borderlands 3‘s second paid campaign expansion for a surprisingly dangerous engagement party in Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock. This content will also be available for individual purchase as an add-on to the base game.
And of course, all players can look forward to future free content updates and events like Mayhem Mode 2.0 and the Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event, both of which are coming in April. You can read more about those, as well as the next campaign expansion, in greater detail right here.
