Gearbox says Borderlands 3 coming to Steam in March, unveils second paid story DLC Guns, Love, and Tentacles out next month.
Borderlands 3 will be waving goodbye to Epic Games Store exclusivity on PC and hello to Steam on 13th March, and it’ll be followed by second paid DLC episode, Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock, two weeks later on 26th March.
According to Gearbox, cross-play will be supported across Steam and the Epic Store come 13th March, meaning that all Borderlands 3 players on PC can knockabout in the same matchmaking pool. Unfortunately, there’s still no update on cross-play between different platforms – that is PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – a feature that Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford asserted would arrive “as soon as practicable after launch…on as many platforms as possible”.
Following Borderlands 3’s Steam release, Gearbox will resume its schedule of post-launch content, which has so far included free limited-time events such as Bloody Harvest, and the first paid DLC episode Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.
Paid DLC number 2 – titled Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock – comes to all platforms on 26th March. It’s set on the ice planet of Xylourgos and pits players against an army of Lovecraftian horrors, which threaten to ruin Sir Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs’ big wedding day. There’s a bit of a tease in the trailer above.
That will be followed in April by Borderlands 3’s Mayhem 2.0 end-game update – which includes over 25 new modifiers, ranging from a big head mode to The Floor is Lava – alongside another free limited-time event, Revenge of the Cartels. May, meanwhile, promises a new Eridian-themed Takedown and challenging new bosses.
