According to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, Borderlands 3's player count is nearly twice when compared to the all time peak concurrent players of the second game in the series.
Taking to Twitter (below), the exec said that the title had a peak concurrent player figure on its launch day that was roughly double the lifetime high for Borderlands 2 on PC. "WOW! You guys are great!".
The lead-up to the release of Borderlands 3 had plenty of stuff for fans to unlock by participating in the VIP program.
Mystics Take Game 1 Opener Against Aces
Delle Donne won her other MVP award in 2015, when she was with Chicago, the team that drafted her No. 2 in 2013 out of Delaware. The seven-year veteran helped the Mystics finish with a 26-8 regular-season record and earn the top seed in the WNBA playoffs.
Philadelphia Eagles cancel practice session due to injuries
Philadelphia is also down two tackles with Malik Jackson and Tim Jernigan suffering serious foot injuries in back-to-back weeks. Alshon Jeffery and tight end Dallas Goedert both have calf strains and could also miss Sunday's game.
Bank of England holds interest rates over Brexit uncertainty
A no-deal Brexit at the end of October raises the prospect of tariffs and other barriers imposed on trade. Kganyago said forecast of GDP growth for 2019 remains unchanged at 0.6%.
Pitchford didn't reveal any precise numbers but, as shared on Eurogamer, Borderlands 2 peaked at 124,678 users at launch. That's a lot of players. The regular release comes with the base game while the Borderlands 3 Deluxe Edition comes with the game and the Retro Cosmetic Pack, the Neon Cosmetic Pack, the Gearbox Cosmetic Pack, the Toy Box Weapons Pack, and Equippable XP & Loot Drop Boost Mods. Borderlands is and has been one of the most popular action RPG series on PC.
If you have not downloaded the game yet, make sure your Epic Games store client is up to date, as when I started playing this morning, I found myself held back by a mysterious error screen until I restarted the storefront. With that in mind we've been playing using the game's near-4K mode on the Xbox One X which retains a mostly solid 30 frames-per-second. This confirms that Gearbox was actually the most anticipated game of this period, but provides another interesting consideration.
Despite the complaints from the community regarding bugs, I'd say Borderlands 3 is having a fairly successful launch.
