Borderlands 3 screenshot showing the children of the vault

Borderlands 3 is set to arrive this September 13th, bringing with it a wide variety of improvements over its predecessor. You can expect to see a whole bunch of new weapons and weapon types to play around with, numerous and highly distinct locations to explore, a horde of half-crazed characters to interact with and potentially shoot in the face, and naturally, enough explosions to make even Mr. Torque proud!

If you're wondering whether your PC will be able to actually run all of that, especially when it comes to the co-op matches, you might be glad to hear that Gearbox has now revealed the PC system requirements. Have a gander:


OS Windows 7/8/10 (latest service pack)

Processor – AMD FX-8350 or Intel i5-3570

Memory – 6GB RAM

Graphics card – AMD Radeon HD 7970 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB

HDD – 75 GB


OS – Windows 7/8/10 (latest service pack)

Processor – AMD Ryzen 5 2600 or Intel i7-4770

Memory – 16GB RAM

Graphics card – AMD Radeon RX 590 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

HDD – 75 GB

Besides the system requirements, Gearbox has also revealed all of the settings we'll be able to fiddle with in order to squeeze out as much FPS from Borderlands 3 as possible. There is no real way to summarize the gigantic list of options, so if you're interested in all of the details, you should head on over to the recent developer update.

As for Borderlands 3 itself, you can learn more about it by hopping over to the official website. If you're not up for reading, however, allow me to leave you with one of the first gameplay previews. It's fairly lengthy, but it'll hopefully answer any questions you might have. Enjoy!
