The waiting is over! After numerous fans were disappointed that Borderlands 3 was initially only released in the Epic Store for its release on September 13, 2019, all Epic refusers will soon be able to enjoy the iconic loot shooter with lots of wacky characters, stories and especially weapons.

As Gearbox Software announced at PAX East 2020, Borderlands 3 will also appear on the major competitor platform Steam in twelve days, more specifically on March 13, 2020. The developers also announced the new DLC “Guns, Love, and Tentacles” (in German: Wummen, Liebe und Tentakel), which should celebrate its release on all available platforms on March 26th. These are from March 13th on Epic Games, Google Stadia and Steam (PC), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Mac operating systems.
A wedding that connects
A wedding in a double sense comes to all Borderlands 3 players. Gearbox explained in its own panel at PAX East that players who bought the game in the Epic Store and are playing there will also be able to fight with new Steam users in the future. Crossplay support should unite players and overcome boundaries.
In terms of content, the game continues with a wedding. Because the new DLC has the subtitle “The Wedding of Wainwright & Hammerlock” and builds on the campaign presented so far. That the wedding does not go as planned should seem more than logical to every Borderlands connoisseur. You can see what that might look like in the new Reveal Trailer.
Of course, the content in the new areas will again fully scale with the level of the character, so that players who have previously spent different amounts of time in Borderlands 3 can also experience the new content together.
You can already preorder Borderlands 3 in different versions on Steam to get started on March 13th. The Season Pass is also available on Steam and grants access to various extravagant cosmetic extras. The ass horse weapon skin, weapon trinket and grenade mod are just one example.
In addition to four campaign DLC packs with new stories, missions and challenges, this also includes the first major DLC “Moxxis Raid”.
There was also a little surprise for all Borderlands players as PAX East souvenirs. For example, players on all platforms can secure five golden conclusions by March 20, 2020, 8:59 a.m., by redeeming the following SHiFT code at Borderlands.com , the Gearbox SHiFT page or via the social menu in Borderlands 3 :
If you are interested in what the further Borderlands 3 Roadmap will look like in the coming months, this overview will help you, which has also been updated and presented:
Gearbox Software will release Guns, Love, and Tentacles on March 26. Players can bypass the main Borderlands 3 story and head straight to the new planet of Xylourgos to start the new expansion.
On March 13, Borderlands 3 will finally come to Steam (the previous PC version was exclusive to the Epic Games Store). Upon launch, the title will include an intersection between Steam and the Epic Games Store. Later, Gearbox will add functionality to allow players to send mail pistols across platforms, as well as some unspoken features.
