Ah, but that’s not all – Epic is also offering a Mega Coupon, which will get you an additional 25 percent off on anything in your cart. So, if you stuff a dozen things in your cart, they all get a 25 percent discount. Even better, once you purchase a cart full of stuff, you’ll receive another Mega Coupon to use during the sale. Not a bad deal.
The chaotic and humorous FPS was released in 2019 with mostly positive reviews. It earned an 8/10 in our Borderlands 3 review thanks to its differentiated character builds, a wide array of weapon types and gameplay variety, and a solid story that rounded out the mainline Borderlands story in style.
You don’t need to have experience with previous Borderlands games to enjoy Borderlands 3. It’s a fun, loot-driven first-person shooter that is especially great for cooperative play. While you can often find Borderlands 3 on sale for cheap, it’s impossible to beat free.
Thanks to Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, if you’ve been claiming Epic Games Store freebies for a while, you likely have two other Borderlands games in your library already. The compilation was a mystery freebie in May 2020. Over the past few years, other notable mystery freebies at Epic include Grand Theft Auto V, Civilization VI, and Control.
After claiming Borderlands 3, check out the deals in Epic’s Mega Sale. The Mega Sale runs each year around this time, and it provides an excellent opportunity to stock up on cheap PC games ahead of Steam’s Summer Sale.
For those who have been lucky enough to get a Steam Deck, you should install the Epic Games Launcher on it. You’ll be able to play Borderlands 3 and other weekly free games and other games you purchase during the Mega Sale on Steam Deck–as long as the Steam Deck is capable of running them, of course.
