What you need to know

  • Borderlands 3 is an upcoming open-world shooter from Gearbox Software.
  • The game launches on Xbox One and PC in September.
  • Its PC requirements were just revealed.
  • You can preorder Borderlands 3 for $60 through the Microsoft Store.

A few months ago, Gearbox Software unveiled Borderlands 3 for Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. The game takes place on multiple planets and features numerous alien Vaults. It's by far the biggest Borderlands game yet, and it looks like the team has nailed it once again. There's so much to do, and given the fact that it doesn't contain microtransactions, you'll have to earn the "billions" of guns through gameplay.

While Borderlands 3 runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X and features a 60 frames per second option, we didn't know what the PC requirements were until now. You can take a look at them below.

Minimum 1080p

• OS – Windows 7/8/10 • Processor – AMD FX-8350 or Intel i5-3570 • Memory – 6GB RAM • Graphics card – AMD Radeon HD 7970 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2 GB • HDD – 75 GB

You can take a look at the other graphical options here like Material Quality and Vehicle Field of View. Borderlands 3 launches on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on September 13. Google Stadia subscribers will probably have to wait until November or later.
