Borderlands 3 pre-load for PC confirmed – everything you need to know
A new game in the ‘Borderlands’ series is about to arrive on September 13, 2019. The upcoming game is the fourth entry in the Borderlands series. It is a first-person shooter game, which has been developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games.
Players can enjoy the Borderlands 3 game in a party of four people, or they can also play it alone. Borderlands 3 has introduced four new playable characters which have been detailed below.
AMARA – THE SIREN
A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
FL4K – THE BEAST MASTER
FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.
MOZE – THE GUNNER
When Moze needs backup she Digistructs her mech – Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
ZANE – THE OPERATIVE
Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.
Players can do various missions which are given by non-playable characters and completing those missions will reward players with in-game items, money, cosmetics and experience. In Borderlands 3, each character can unlock three unique skills except for Zane. In previous Borderlands games, each character was only capable of unlocking one unique skill.
Borderlands 3 will be released on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Google Stadia. Well, there is good news for PC players as they will be able to pre-load the game through the Epic Games Store. After weeks of uncertainty, Epic Games has finally confirmed that players who pre-ordered the game will be able to pre-load two days before the official release.
Epic Games has not revealed the exact pre-load schedule. However, as per the global release date of the game, one can infer its pre-load timings. The game is expected to become available for pre-load 48 hours before its official release.
