Original Story:

2K Games and developer Gearbox Software have announced when Borderlands 3 will be coming to Steam.

While the game becoming an Epic Games Store exclusive was less-than-warmly received (especially after comments made by Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford), the game is now returning to Steam, along side two premium editions. The Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Super Deluxe Edition.

Firstly, the Digital Deluxe Edition contains the following:

  • “Retro Cosmetic Pack: Vault Hunter head & skin, Echo Device skin, weapon skin
  • Neon Cosmetic Pack: Vault Hunter head & skin, Echo Device skin, trinket
  • Gearbox Cosmetic Pack: weapon skin, trinket
  • Toy Box Weapons Pack: 2 Toy guns, Toy grenade mod, trinket
  • Equippable XP & Loot Drop Boost Mods”

The Super Deluxe Edition includes the Season Pass, and the Deluxe Bonus Pack (containing all content from the Digital Deluxe Edition).

The Season Pass- which contains four campaign DLC packs. The first of these (Moxxi’s Heist if the Handsome Jackpot) is already available, with “Guns, Love, and Tentacles” launching March 25th. Outlaws and Dinosaurs launches Summer 2020.

The Season Pass also contains the Butt Stallion pack, containing a weapon skin, weapon trinket, and grenade mod.

The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.


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.


Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities, playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together they are unstoppable.


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.


Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across war-torn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!


Play with anyone at any time with online co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress.
