Thankfully, the Borderlands series has never been too demanding in terms of PC spec and Borderlands 3 is looking like it will remain PC friendly and won’t require you to get out your MasterCard to upgrade your GPU any time soon. Releasing on 13th September, Borderlands 3 will have lots of toggles for you to play with so you can get the optimum set up for your rig.

When Borderlands 3 launches on 13th September we get to revisit Pandora in the shoes of four new vault hunters. No matter what your preferred playstyle one of the new characters should take your fancy whether you choose Moze the GunnerAmara the SirenZane Flint or FL4K the Beastmaster. Each new character has their own distinct style, strengths and weaknesses.
