Gearbox announced Borderlands 3 at PAX East last week and launched its trailer with no sign of any release date. Fans went crazy after seeing the amazing trailer and started to make theories about when the game is going to release.
The most famous theory was of it releasing on October 1, 2019. Now that the release date is confirmed, it seems that the fans were almost correct, as September 13 is not so far off from October 1.
Borderlands 3 exclusive deal with Epic Store is quite shocking as all of its prequels were launched on Steam and have received hype after the trailer of the upcoming game was launched. Steam is still providing updates and increasing popularity to Borderlands series, whose sequel won’t be even available on Steam for several months after its release.
Other than the release date and exclusivity with Epic Store, the video also reveals some new characters that will be available in Borderlands 3. The new Borderlands 3 characters are: Amara, Moze, Zane, FL4KWe.
