Borderlands 3 Released on Steam: the Game Breaks Records!

By the way, if suddenly you were waiting for the Steam version, and one of your friends did not wait for it and took it to EGS, then do not worry – there is crossplay between the two versions of the game.
However, despite the successful launch of Borderlands 3, it is very far from setting a new record for the peak of the online Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Valve’s multiplayer shooter on March 15 was played by more than a million users simultaneously.
