Be quick, it's a limited time period to play the epic shooter looter for free
That's right, for a limited time only, you'll get to jump into the award-winning FPS RPG without having to spend any of your own precious loot. You'll get to power up your chosen Vault Hunter with killer weapons and superhuman abilities as you shoot and loot across multiple planets in pursuit of the diabolical Calypso Twins.
If you decide to purchase any edition of Borderlands 3 after the Free Play period ends, all your progress and loot will be saved so you can pick up right where you left off.
