Borderlands 3 Release Date Confirmed, Special Editions Detailed

Borderlands 3 will officially release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on the Epic Games Store on September 13, 2019, and four different versions of the game have been revealed, including the $250 Diamond Loot Chest Collector’s Edition.

Announced by Gearbox Software and 2K, the latest entry in the Borderlands franchise also received a brand-new trailer that shows off and names the four new vault hunters, which are as follows;

  • 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 used 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.
  • Zane as THE OPERATIVE: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.

These new vault hunters will be facing off against the Calypso Twins, who are “uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power.”

Luckily, players will have over one billion guns to utilize, including firearms with self-propelling bullet shields, rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes, and guns that grow legs and “chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults,” which was featured in the reveal trailer.

Most retailers already have Borderlands 3 preorder links live, with more to come. Also, of note, is that the Epic Games Store exclusivity only lasts until April 2020, when it will then appear on other PC digital storefronts. Here are the details for the multiple editions:
