As we recently reported, the Epic Games Store’s exclusivity over Borderlands 3 has come to an end. Now available on Steam, Borderlands 3 has a broader audience of PC players who will all be able to play together. In addition to launching on Steam, Borderlands 3 includes cross-platform play between Epic Games Store and Steam.
The PC cross-play is facilitated by SHiFT matchmaking and allows players to add friends, join co-op parties and play together regardless of which platform they purchased the game on.
The Steam version of Borderlands 3 is on sale until March 20 and is available as follows;
Those who purchase on Steam before April 1, 2020 will also get access to the Gold Weapons Skin Pack for free. The Steam version includes all content released thus far and players who purchase the Season Pass or Super Deluxe Edition can play Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot right away.
Gearbox and 2K have also given players a look at the next expansion; Guns, Love & Tentacles. With the expansion only eight days away, fans can get a look at the first 12-minutes in a new video (above).
When Guns, Love & Tentacles launches for Borderlands 3 on March 26, Gearbox is promising the following;
- Reunite with old friends and team up with some eerie new characters to help true love triumph over eldritch horror
- Brave the bone-chilling wastes of Xylourgos, an all-new ice planet unlike anywhere you’ve visited in the Borderlands before
- Confront bloodthirsty enemies and formidable bosses including alien beasts, hideously mutated occultists, and a clan of cold-blooded bandits
- Delve into the disturbing and occasionally daft backstories of cursed townfolk in a host of spine-tingling side missions
- Arm your Vault Hunter with some of the deadliest gear in the galaxy, including a trove of additional Legendaries and some supremely powerful Class Mods
- Flaunt your sense of style with a slew of new cosmetic items, from Vault Hunter Heads & Skins to interactive Room Decorations and all-new Vehicle Skins
