Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition is now available on Nintendo Switch ($59.99) in physical and digital forms.

The Ultimate Edition includes the base game plus all four major DLC expansion releases:

  • Borderlands 3
  • Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot
  • Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock
  • Bounty of Blood
  • Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck
  • Designer’s Cut add-on, featuring new Arms Race mode and additional skill tree for each Vault Hunter
  • Director’s Cut add-on, adding new raid boss, story missions, and extra features
  • Over 30 cosmetic items

According to reviews and streamers, Borderlands 3 receives a visual downgrade on Switch (expected) but still runs at over 30 frames per second (nice!), including in docked and handheld mode.

The one major limitation is the Switch version is limited to two-player co-op, and does not support split-screen (other platforms support up to four player co-op). Both players will need their own Switch, though multiplayer can be played locally or online. Online multiplayer requires a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

The Borderlands series is known for its irreverent R-rated humor, colorful art style, and emphasis on randomly generated guns. The threequel adds new Vault Hunters, each with their own special abilities and skill trees, and expands the world and story onto multiple planets.

Borderlands 3 completes the series on Nintendo Switch. It’s also available on PC, PlayStation and Xbox. The series is rated M for Mature.
