Play Borderlands 3 for free this weekend!

Posted: Aug 6 2020

Try Borderlands 3 during the Free Play weekend across multiple platforms!

Borderlands 3 is free to play this weekend on select platforms, and the fun is already underway on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam, and Stadia. If you haven't yet embarked on your own Borderlands 3 adventure or you're looking to get some friends involved, now's the perfect time!

Between the platform-specific start and end times listed below, you can enjoy everything that the Borderlands 3 base game has to offer. 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. To that end, Borderlands 3 is currently on sale across all the platforms listed below; see each first-party store listing for additional details.
