Borderlands 3 pre-loading coming to PC via Epic Game Store

1

What was once impossible is no longer.

Borderlands 3 pre-loading on PC will be possible via the Epic Games Store, 2K today confirmed.

Pre-loading will be available for all current platforms — Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 — “roughly 48 hours ahead of the launch date and time listed for region,” 2K today advised, pointing out that, “yes, that includes PC!”

Last month, Epic’s Tim Sweeney said pre-loading wouldn’t be possible.

Here’s when Borderlands 3 will be available to play around the world:

Borderlands 3 console launch times

  • Australia: 12.01am AEST, 13 September
  • New Zealand: 12.01am NZST, 13 September
  • All other regions: 12.01am, 13 September in your own timezone

The exception to the above is the USA’s eastern coast, who’ll gain access to Borderlands 3 at the same time the western coast does (so, 9.00pm PDT in San Francisco as an example).

Borderlands 3 PC launch times

PC’s a different bag altogether, with launch occuring at 12.01 am BST. That equates to the following in different regions:

  • Australia: 9.00am AEST, 13 September
  • New Zealand: 11.00 am NZST, 13 September
  • San Francisco, USA: 4.00 pm PDT, 12 September
  • New York, USA: 7.00 pm EDT, 12 September
  • Italy: 1.00am CEST, 13 September
  • Tokyo: 8.00am JST, 13 September

Got all that?

Borderlands 3 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 from 13 September.
