"Borderlands 3" was one of this year's most anticipated games, the long-awaited sequel to a cult-classic series that has captivated fans for years — and I'm happy to say, it doesn't disappoint.
"Borderlands 3" launched on September 13 across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and it's the first new "Borderlands" title in nearly five years, following up on the somewhat maligned "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel."
The "Borderlands" franchise has sold more than 48 million copies since its debut in 2009. The series is best known for its irreverent humor, hundreds of outrageous weapons, and cooperative play for up to four players. These elements have helped "Borderlands 2" remain one of the most popular shooting games on PC seven years after its release. "Borderlands 2"'s success helped popularize the "looter shooter" genre that now includes games like "Destiny" and "The Division."
