The Epic Games Store has revealed its first mystery freebie for the month of May, and it’s a significant one. Beginning today, PC gamers can grab a copy of the third mainline installment of Gearbox Software’s hit cel-shaded shooter-looter franchise, Borderlands 3, at no cost. Borderlands 3 is a relatively recent title that only released in September 2019 and still carries the usual MSRP of $59.99. The game is also on sale for $14.99 for gamers who’d prefer to get the Steam version and reap the platform’s usual benefits, such as Steam Achievements. Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, Guns, Love and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, and Bounty of Blood are just a few of the DLC content packs that Borderlands 3 has received since its release in 2019 for fans who’d like to extend the experience of Gearbox’s base game. Borderlands 3 is available to claim on the Epic Games Store for free until 5/26 at 11:00 a.m. (EST).

The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.

  1. The game is great the main story maybe a bit less but I kinda liked dispatching a couple stupid streamers.

    I think that handsome Jack get's a bit too much admiration as the ultimate bad guy in the previous game, he was at times as annoying as the 2 clowns in BL3.
  2. Never was a huge fan of Borderlands myself, but a buddy of mine told me it was free and we may do some co op with it some time so I figured what the heck.
