Play Borderlands 3 for Free on Steam

You can play Borderlands 3 on Steam for free through the weekend, offering the chance to shoot and loot to your heart's content without parting with any actual loot. This post explains:
Borderlands 3 is free to play this weekend on select platforms. If you haven't yet embarked on your own Borderlands 3 adventure or you're looking to get some friends involved, now's the perfect time!

Between the start and end times listed below, you can enjoy everything that the Borderlands 3 base game has to offer. Power up your chosen Vault Hunter with killer weapons and superhuman abilities as you shoot and loot across multiple planets in pursuit of the diabolical Calypso Twins.

If you decide to purchase any edition of Borderlands 3 after the Free Play period ends, all your progress and loot will be saved so you can pick up right where you left off. To that end, Borderlands 3 is currently on sale as well; see the Steam store listing for additional details.

Wtf, 178 gigs, 200gigs? I am going to need to get a 1TB< SSD for the desktop.
You can also play off of an hdd and move it back and forth from ssd to hdd and vice a versa if you find load times unacceptable.

Install size on Steam claims to be 80gb.... is that true?!

Its currently 105GB on my system. Might be the DLC content. I really should actually get around to playing the game.

Yikes, that's costing you about $100 just to store the game on your PC lol

200 GB? Geez. This is really out of control. Huge SSDs aren't cheap like HDDs!

I just removed Modern Warfare from my SSD to pre-load Horizon Zero, that game was a whopping 192 gigs or something like that.

I remember when I first Installed Elder Scrolls Online about 3-4 years ago and was shocked it was 100GB. I don't really think 80 is that bad. Especially when I just put in a 4TB secondary drive. If you don't have a couple 4TB drives in your PC now, you're in trouble IMHO.

As for BL3, it's actually fairly decent. The story is really bad (I don't want to spoil it, but the "twists" in it are really ridiculous and fanfic-level dumb) but the actual shooting mechanics are incredible and the loot drops a lot better than the other games. Lots of legendaries, ala Diablo 3.

80 isn't even that much anymore, many games are double that.

See for yourself! Quantum Break is leading at the moment (178 GB).

No way that 'top result' list is accurate... I know for a fact ARK: Survival Evolved is over 200GB now.

Insane. What's the biggest PC game size now? I'm so glad I don't video game much like I used to. My old games are big enough like Oblivion, Pulsar Lost Colony, etc.

Just replayed BL2 a month ago, and am totally BL-d out. Will pick this up probably next year though, as I love this series.
