Borderlands 3 on Steam

Borderlands 3 is now available on Steam with a 50% discount for the next week, offering another way to buy the newest installment in Gearbox's action/RPG/shooter series. This post covers the news and announces that this marks the beginning of cross-play for the Windows edition:
The wait is finally over, Vault Hunters! Borderlands 3 is now available on Steam, giving even more PC players the opportunity to shoot and loot their way across the exotic worlds of the Borderlands universe. Better still, Borderlands 3 is available at a special launch price on Steam for a limited time!

Today also marks the launch of PC Cross-Play, which allows you to play the Steam version of Borderlands 3 with players on other PC platforms. Thanks to some exciting new SHiFT matchmaking functionality, Borderlands 3 PC players can add friends to their Friends Lists, join co-op parties, and play together online regardless of which PC platform each player is using.

The Steam version of Borderlands 3 includes all free updates and add-on content to date, including Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite. Those who purchase the Borderlands 3 Season Pass or Super Deluxe Edition can also access the latest campaign expansion, Moxxi's Heist of The Handsome Jackpot. Additionally, on March 26, Super Deluxe Edition and Season Pass holders across all platforms can dive into Borderlands 3's second paid campaign add-on for a surprisingly dangerous engagement party in Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock.

And of course, all players can look forward to future free content updates and events, like Mayhem Mode 2.0 and the Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event, both of which are coming in April.

We’re excited to welcome all new Vault Hunters to the worlds of Borderlands 3—happy looting!
