Is There Crossplay Available?
Crossplay Between Steam & Epic Games
It has been announced that cross platform play will be available between Steam & Epic Games Launcher. Players will now be able to enjoy Borderlands 3 no matter which launcher you play it in! However, no other mention of crossplay between consoles and PC has been mentioned yet.
Not Available at Launch
At launch, Borderlands 3 will not be supporting Cross Play multiplayer. Multiplayer will only be available in split screen or online sessions within the same platforms.
Cross Play will be Added
Randy Pitchford, Gearbox CEO has stated in a tweet that Cross Play will be coming to Borderlands 3 as soon as they can implement it after the launch. No date yet on when this will be added.
Some folks may be speculating that this thing tomorrow may be about cross play. Tomorrow’s thing is awesome, but *not* about cross-play. But, Good News: We are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch. #talklater https://t.co/XtUzrBpySP— Randy Pitchford (@DuvalMagic) July 15, 2019
