Borderlands 3 will release on Sept. 13, 2019, on Windows Pc, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.The PC version will be a 6 months timed exclusive in the Epic Games Store. After that time period, it will be released on other platforms.

The king of the shooter-looter genre has returned. In this game, you will be able to play as one of the four vault hunters. In this mayhem-filled adventure you will be taking on the Calypso Twins. These two cult leaders are recruiting all the bandits to take over the galaxy.

During your adventure, you can equip yourself with an arsenal of weaponry. Borderlands 3 will be packed with gazillions of guns. You can level up your character and upgrade their skills and abilities.

You can play Borderlands 3 solo or co-op. It doesn’t matter if your friend isn’t the same level as you. The game with scale appropriately for each player. So you don’t have to worry that you got the short end of the stick when helping out your buddy to catch up. A great thing is that Borderlands 3 will have crossplay so you will also be able to team up with a friend on a different platform.

I got this info pretty late and had to leave for work. Here is the fact sheet. I’ll update out once I get home.

 

What’s New

  • A Mayhem-Fueled Thrill Ride: Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.
  • Your Vault Hunter, Your Playstyle: Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities and playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together, they are unstoppable.
    • Moze as THE GUNNER: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech – Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
    • Amara as THE SIREN: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
    • FL4K as THE BEASTMASTER: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.

  • Lock, Load, and Loot: With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.

That means you can play with anyone at any time online or in split-screen co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress. Take down enemies and challenges as a team, but reap rewards that are yours alone – no one misses out on loot.

      MentalMars i see that the epic logo is on the trailer vid, and the steam is absent but where did they specify the duration of the exclusivity?
      I read they announced it in a press release but i can’t find that???

      The fact sheet only mentions that the game will be in the EPIC Games store. The press release I got from 2K did mention it being a timed exclusive. I double checked it with the 2K Office here in Holland.

      MentalMars thx mate, so they’ve only announced it via press releases that media outlets are only privy to see?

      Greg Ax Wilden Everyone can sign up for the press releases I think. Back in the day when my cousin wanted to start a game site he just contacted every publisher to be added to the mailing list.

      The press release doesn’t specifically mention “hey it will be on steam after 6 months” It mentions that after 6 months it will be possible to show up on other stores. I think this is a gentleman’s way of informing people rather than slander their current partner (epic).

      Randy Pitchford also mentioned the 6 months exclusive in his tweets when people started freaking out.
