Borderlands is a popular gaming series beginning all the way back to 2009, when the first game was released. The games boast a first-person shooter and open-world playing style, not to mention the splicing of sci-fi and western to make up the game’s overall theme.

The plot for Borderlands 3 focuses on four new Vault Hunters, who have been recruited by the Crimson Raiders of Pandora in order to stop twins, Troy and Tyreen Calypso (and their insane cult followers) from harnessing a power that could spell disaster for the galaxy.

The Ultimate Edition of Borderlands 3 is the definitive gaming experience, with features such as the award-winning base game, as well as all six content add-ons and the complete collection of bonus cosmetic packs.

PS5 and Xbox Series X will be the only consoles that support this physical edition of the game, which is where players can experience the incredible 4K resolution, 60 frames per second (fps), and the immense processing power.

Users can also enjoy single player mode and online co-op, along with three and four player split-screen when using local multiplayer.
