Borderlands 3 is no doubt one of the hottest games right now. The game recently released last September 13 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. For those who are still in the fence of whether to get the game, here is a list of the 5 best and worst things about Borderlands 3.
Given that Borderlands 3 is doing extremely well despite its absence on Steam, major video game retailers are still offering the game at full price. However, one exemption to that is Amazon, who is currently offering Borderlands 3 at a slightly cheaper price at the time of writing. Players can get Borderlands 3 for the PS4 on Amazon for $53.17, which is about $6 less than its list price of $59.99.
Although Amazon's discount doesn't offer huge savings, it is still the cheapest price for Borderlands 3 as compared to other retailers such as Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Walmart, PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Epic Games Store. Unfortunately, Amazon's discount is only available for the PS4 version of the game, given that the Xbox One variant is still listed at full price As of the moment, NPD predicts that Borderlands 3 is one of the strongest contenders to achieve 2019's best selling game.
In past Borderlands games, developer Gearbox has previously introduced post-launch DLC content in the form of a new storyline, quests, and playable characters. However, the developer recently confirmed that Borderlands 3 won't be getting additional DLC characters, which means that players will be left with Amara, Flak, Moze, and Zane as their Vault Hunters. When asked about the possibility of DLC characters, creative director Paul Sage responded with, "Probably not, no," which appears to be definitive for now but may still be open to changes along the way.
Although Borderlands 3 may not be getting additional DLC characters, the game will still receive post-launch events in the future. Several days ago, Gearbox announced Borderlands 3's first DLC event called Bloody Harvest. The event will be a free update, but will only be available for a limited time. Just in time for Halloween, Bloody Harvest will introduce halloween-themed skins, enemies, and environments. The event will also allow players to unlock two new legendaries, as well as various loot including a new grenade mod.
Borderlands 3 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
