Today Gearbox unleashed the release date for Borderlands 3 on PC, XBox One and PS4 of September 13th to some fairly unhappy PC fans. Typically Borderlands PC fans are a happy bunch as the game has quite a few benefits to the PC port in increased FOV sliders and detail options but publisher 2K has decided to go with a six months PC Epic Store exclusive meaning that you can't buy Borderlands 3 on PC via Steam at launch. This has led many PC fans to be quite upset and has tanked the review scores of Borderlands 2 as some are venting their frustration in Steam reviews.

All told I'm not too surprised Borderlands 3 is an Epic Store exclusive but it does give me pause as to when I might buy it. I don't mind playing PC games on different storefronts but this year will be rich with other game releases and that coupled with the Epic lock in makes me give Borderlands 3 on PC a second thought.

All that said, there are quite a few versions you can buy including the standard edition, deluxe edition, super deluxe edition, collectors edition and season pass. The super deluxe digital edition is $99.99 and comes with all the deluxe edition DLC plus the entire season pass. That said, if Borderlands 2 is a guide that won't be all the DLC for the game but a hundred dollars will get you a pretty large chunk of it.

Curious if you're going to get Borderlands 3 on launch and if so what system?

Yeah I may end up getting it on PS4 and then Steam later, after the year of exclusivity is over.

I just don’t like this new practice of Epic paying for exclusivity.

Agreed. Also by the time it comes to Steam after 6 months it should be on a pretty fun sale.

OH it's six months. At least that's better than what a few other big titles have been.
