2K Games and Gearbox have announced that Borderlands 3 is currently free to play on Steam. From today and until August 12th, PC gamers can visit the game’s Steam store page, download it, and play it.
Borderlands 3 came out first on the PC via Epic Games Store. Thankfully, though, the game supports cross-play between Steam and Epic Games Store. Additionally, both the Steam and EGS versions have the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.
Earlier this week, Take Two stated that the game has passed its 10 million goal, selling 10.5 million units on all platforms. Borderlands 3 also had a successful launch, with concurrent players twice as high as Borderlands 2’s all-time peak.
It’s also worth noting that 2K Games is offering Borderlands 3 on Steam with a 50% discount during its free to play weekend. That means that you can get it for $29.99.
For Borderlands 3, Gearbox partnered with AMD. As such, this was one of the first games that supported AMD’s FidelityFX tech. However, the game had optimization issues at launch.
