Borderlands 3 runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X

The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here, Borderlands 3 is launching on Xbox One and other platforms on September 13. Yes, this year! Many expected the title to be available in 2020 or 2021, but that's not the case at all. What's even better is that the game features phenomenal Xbox One X support. A listing on GameStop and the Microsoft Store provided more details.

According to the listing, the title features "4K" and "HDR" support on Xbox One X. However, the Microsoft Store also lists "Variable Refresh Rate." This means that the game should look exceptionally smooth on displays that support this technology. It's great to see that developer Gearbox Software is going all-in to make it stand out on the console. Hopefully the frame rate will also be 60 frames per second just like Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

According to the team, the original shooter-looter returns, packing "bazillions" of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure. Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Your goal is to stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy's ultimate power. During the course of the adventure, you'll discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments.
