Borderlands 3 - Return To Vault Hunting On 9/13/2019!

Last week at PAX East, the folks at Gearbox teased everyone that Borderlands 3 was in fact a reality and that today, 4/20/2019, we would get more details.  Not only did fans get the official launch trailer, but also, Gearbox gave everyone a synopsis of the story, a breakdown of the versions that will be offered, and more importantly, the release date.  Fans only have to wait just over 5  months for the game to be a reality.  Unfortunately for PC fans, the war of the online stores is continuing.  It was announced that Borderlands 3 will only be available through the Epic Game Store for the first 6 months it is out for the PC.  In an effort to wet everyone’s appetite, Gearbox released Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Enhanced on PC, XBOX, and PS4.  Let’s breakdown the versions and the cost for each:
