Gearbox & 2K Games Confirms Borderlands 3’s 13 September Release Date; Also PC Epic Store Exclusive

It’s official: Borderlands 3 is coming out 13 September for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. We’ve already suspected it, given the copious amount of leaks yesterday. The PC version will be Epic Store-exclusive; it’ll be out in other storefronts on April 2020.

The release date trailer also confirmed the names and abilities of the new Vault Hunters. To refresh your memory, Moze is the bot-jock whom Titanfall fans will fall in love with. 

She can pilot her mech called Iron Bear, which also has a turret on its head that players can use. She gets more dangerous when she has friends tagging along with her.


Fl4k (formerly Flak) the cyborg is the beastmaster/pet class. I wonder if he can use multiple pets at the same time though.


Amara’s the new siren, who seems more melee-focused than her Siren predecessors. She can summon multiple ethereal arms that can do ground pounds and a ton of melee moves. She’ll be the new brawler of the group.


…and Zane’s the saboteur stealth rich dude who happens to summon his own attack drone and can summon distracting holograms. How about that? I guessed mostly right in my last write-up about this.

Borderlands 3 will have four editions. In addition to Standard which is just the game itself, there’s the following:
