Some level-headed Borderlands three followers have requested Pitchford on Twitter why the sport can be unique on the Epic Games Store regardless of Steam having a greater characteristic set. His response presumably gave us a touch of what to anticipate from Epic sooner or later.

Steam’s histogram to point out current critiques might be seen to see when Borderlands 2 began getting evaluate bombed.
