Borderlands 3 Steam release date: When is Borderlands 3 coming to Steam?
Borderlands fans won’t have long to wait until the mayhem is ramped up in Borderlands 3 .
The looter shooter game by Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games will be released on September 13.
But in an interesting twist, it is being released to PC exclusively via the Epic Games Store at launch.
Despite Epic Games having the exclusivity rights, it will also be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
That means Xbox, PlayStation and PC gamers will be able to enjoy the larger-than-life characters in a colourful alien planet which they can explore to their hearts’ content.
But it does mean that Steam gamers will be left out – but will they ever get to play?
When will Borderlands 3 release on Steam?
Luckily, even though the Epic Games Store currently hold an exclusivity deal on the Gearbox game, it won’t last forever.
That means Steam players will be able to pick it up later down the line.
Their exclusivity deal will last six months, after which Borderlands 3 will be available in other PC stores.
That means those looking to download Borderlands 3 on other PC stores will have to wait until April 2020.
While Steam hasn’t been specifically mentioned, it is unlikely they will leave out the biggest PC game distributor in the world.
However, as of right now, it’s an educated guess that Borderlands 3 will release on Steam in April 2020.
A press release stated: “At launch on September 13, Borderlands 3 will be available for PC exclusively through the Epic Games store.
“Borderlands 3 will be available on additional PC digital storefronts in April 2020.”
But for right now, if you’re a PC gamer and want to play Borderlands 3, the Epic Games Store is your only option.
