Borderlands 3 box art leaks, Diamond Loot Chest Collector's Edition outed

Borderlands 3 box art leaks, Diamond Loot Chest Collector's Edition outed

Revealed alongside the Announce Trailer, the "Diamond Loot Chest Collector's Edition" includes a bunch of figures and Borderlands 3 themed items.

The PC video game store wars rage on, with the newly announced Borderlands 3 the latest game to pick a side.

Above you can see the first Tweet that clearly indicates Borderlands 3 will launch on 13 Sept, a Friday. A full gameplay reveal will be broadcast on May 1st. Borderlands is also built on the Unreal Engine, meaning the Gearbox will get an even better revenue percentage for game sales on Epic's platform. The season pass will cover four campaign DLC and includes a Butt Stallion cosmetic pack, which is a nice little throwback to Borderlands 2. Additionally, while this is not entirely clear yet, the ad only shows the Epic Games Store logo instead of Steam's, suggesting it may indeed be an exclusive on PC as some had surmised.

A new trailer highlights the four playable vault hunters and some of their abilities: Moze the Gunner, Amara the Siren, FL4K the Beastmaster and Zane the Operative. Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford, tweeted his support for the Epic Games Store late previous year and stated that he was excited to support it himself.

He continued to say that he's "happy to shop in different stores" and offered a preemptive defence and hint at Borderlands 3's shorter exclusivity.

A collector's edition version of Borderlands 3 has officially been unveiled and it's going to cost $250 United States dollars. You can find lots and lots of details about the various editions - Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Collector's - as well as the season pass, on the preorder site.

"Our mission, in addition to delivering the most engaging and captivating entertainment experiences, is to embrace new distribution platforms that will contribute to our effort to grow the audience for Borderlands 3", he added.
