Release date: September 13, 2019
Genre: First-person co-op looter-shooter
Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition, the quintessential Borderlands 3 experience, is included in Borderlands Collection: Pandora's Box! Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition contains the award-winning base game plus all six content add-ons and the full collection of bonus cosmetic packs.
Let's Make Some Mayhem! Borderlands 3 has you blasting through multiple worlds as one of four Vault Hunters, the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or party up in co-op to take on deranged enemies, score loads of loot, and save the galaxy from a fanatical threat.
The Calypso Twins, Troy and Tyreen, are ruthless new media cult leaders who have convinced the bandit clans of the Borderlands that they are their Gods and Saviors. They consider the power of the Vaults to be their birthright and are leading their weaponized worshippers, The Children of the Vault, on a crusade to claim it. Only you have the arsenal and allies to take them down.
With over one billion guns available—including firearms with self-propelling bullet shields, colossal saw blade launchers, and guns with legs that chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults—every fight is an opportunity to add to your collection. Your adventure starts on the familiar desert planet of Pandora, but before long you'll be wreaking havoc in new vistas across the galaxy including a backwater swampland, a futuristic city, and a picturesque monastery.
