Hey, remember Borderlands 3? When the only way to play it on PC was to install the confusingly maligned Epic Games Store? Well that time has long since passed as the FPS RPG is on Steam as of March 13th, and with some time on the platform now under its belt, it appears that things have been pretty favorable overall. At the time of this writing, Borderlands 3 is sitting on a Mostly Positive user review aggregate, with most players finding its gunplay a strong enough hook to ignore a storyline and writing that’s called “abysmal.” The game also seems to have done some respectable numbers in terms of player concurrency, with Steamcharts showing an all-time peak of 93,597 and a 24-hour peak of just over half that number at 59,967.
Yesterday, Gearbox was talking up Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, the game’s second content drop. And we’re also expecting a free level cap increase to 57, the endgame overhaul dubbed Mayhem Mode 2.0, and the six-week seasonal Revenge of the Cartels event. Mayhem Mode 2.0 is launching in April.
Just in case you missed it, Borderlands 3 does allow for some cross-platform play between Steam and EGS, which should be good news for those who prefer their irreverent looter-shooter RPG with some co-op.
