    For the population of PC gamers that ignore the existence of the Epic Games Store, Borderlands 3 is due for release next month. After a six-month exclusivity period with Epic Games, the game is coming to Steam on March 13th. If your friend group is split between having already tried the Epic Games Store version and wanting it on Steam, you won't have to worry, as the two different launcher versions will have crossplay with each other. As noted by the Steam page, it'll have Denuvo DRM.

    The exclusivity period killed any small amount of hype I might've had for this one. I could pick up a copy on the high seas, but I think I'm just as content to pretend that Borderlands 2 was the last game in the series.

    Wait, did the Epic Game Store version not have Denuvo?

    I'd get it, had the company hadn't done all the scummy crap it did leading up to and even following the game's release. Don't think I'll forget what happened with the suited thugs at that one youtuber's house!

    yeah lol no fuckin thanks
    Considering it has fucking denuvo i'd be satisfied if they had just made a switch port w gyro
    Any PC game with denuvo is instantly on my piracy list. anti piracy measures only increase the piracy rate. won't these retards get it

    I've finished it with a friend and it's basically Borderlands 2.5 - it's bigger but not better. It runs a hell of a lot worse, that's for sure. I'll buy all the dlc in a year or probably two...whenever it's dirt cheap. I knew I was buying a buggy game and I stand by my purchases but I decided to try to get a refund after a couple of hours. It wasn't accepted so I just played it with my buddy. I didn't think they deserved my money after I realized it was nowhere near finished. It ran like crap. I was prepared and I did read the forums before I bought it. I had a good time but the loot system is completely broken. There's nothing you find out in the world worth picking up. You can get a shitton of golden keys and get yourself some stuff every five-ten levels or whatever. It's just broken. I remember enjoying Borderlands 2 more.

    It does, it's just that Steam tells you it does, another feature the Epic Games Store does not have

    Regardless of Epic exclusivity I lost interested after the second game, I don't think I can be bothered playing it.

    Eh, my PC is too much of a potato for this game. I've heard it's kinda decent though, so I guess that's cool for Steam users!

    Got it free with my CPU purchase.. Yeah, on Epic store.. It's honestly not a good game, even for Borderlands. BL2 still holds the top spot.

    I find it somewhat amusing that the pre sequel is more or less ignored entirely in these discussions.

    Now having played pre sequel that is not exactly unjustified but I still find it amusing.
