Borderlands series review-bombed on Steam to protest Epic Store timed-exclusivity

Borderlands 3 release date posted, and deleted, on Twitter alongside Epic Games Store announcement

It's hard to know at the moment whether or not cross-platform co-op will indeed be a feature in Borderlands 3 or if this mention on the game's page is accidental. On PC, it'll be a timed Epic Games Store exclusive, with a launch on other digital PC platforms planned for April 2020. In previous Borderlands games, loot would be shared, meaning that other players could grab loot before you and it'd be gone.

Instead of facing off against Handsome Jack, who is no more, players will be fighting back the Calypso Twins, the pair uniting the bandit clans throughout the world and working to get their hands on the galaxy's "ultimate power".

The official Borderlands 3 Twitter account posted a message yesterday stating that "Mayhem", a term previously used to describe the game, is coming on September 13. It will be an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC. During the course of the adventure, you'll discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments.

What About Crossplay? Will Borderlands 3 Allow Cross-Platform Play on Xbox, PS4 and PC? Please direct all inquiries regarding any of those topics to 2K.

As a customer, I'm happy to shop in different stores - already do! Fans of the series will either have to buy this release from Epic Games or wait more than half-a-year to buy it from an alternative game marketplace. Gearbox's huge new sequel will release in a congested window. We believe multi-platform support is a pre-requisite and Epic's leadership with cross-platform support is helpful to our interests there.

Wario64's tweet shows that the cover art slightly varies in colour with each of the three editions: blue for standard, red for the Deluxe Edition, and Gold for the Super Deluxe Edition. " This lead to a mixed response from fans, with some growing concerned about the potential exclusivity deals that could affect upcoming Gearbox titles, like the then unannounced Borderlands 3". No doubt we'll find out more about Borderlands 3 at E3 in June, so stay tuned.
