When Can You Download Borderlands 3

Players that wish to play Borderlands 3 as soon as possible will want to be certain that they download the game in preface of the aforementioned release times. Gearbox has confirmed that the time that fans can download BL3 will come approximately 48 hours before the game launches in each designated region. This is the case for all players, regardless of if they are playing on console or PC, which means that everyone will have ample time to preload Borderlands 3 before release.

That said, the Borderlands 3 download size may mean that players need to clear a little space on their systems in order to install it. According to the Microsoft Store, the BL3 download size for Xbox One is 39.99GB. However, the PlayStation Store and Epic Games Store both point to save sizes of around 75GB for PS4 and PC, and players that want to be prepared for the Borderlands 3 release date should plan accordingly.
