2K Games announced the PC system requirements for Borderlands 3. What many gamers should be happy: The game seems to run well even on older computers in FHD resolution. But if you have a strong gaming rig, you will be able to benefit from it.

Even the previous installments of Borderlands series were known to run perfectly even on weaker systems. 2K Games does not break this tradition with the new game either: gamers with current titles running smoothly on their PC will definitely not need to upgrade their computer for Borderlands 3.

The game has a variety of graphic settings

Borderlands 3 has a lot of graphic settings that allow you to customize the game exactly to your needs. For example, different frame rate limits can be set or the FPS limit can even be switched off completely. In addition, the visibility in the game can be reduced or extended. It is also quite practical that the size of the HUD displays can be adjusted.

But, the game still offers familiar options such as graphics quality, shadows, environment details and more, which can be adjusted in the levels Low, Medium, High and Ultra allowing low-end and medium-end PCs to balance Performance and Quality of the game. The complete list of configurable items can be found on the website of “Borderlands 3” .


Borderlands 3 will be released September 13 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and later on Google Stadia.
