Borderlands 3 Patch Notes Address Issues Affecting Gameplay With More Fixes Incoming

Boderlands 3 has been on the wishlists of many gamers and though it isn’t as good as the other installments in the series, it is still fun. Though the game did have some glitches that marred the experience, developer Gearbox were quick to announce a roadmap and fixes for Borderlands 3.

As you can see the October 24 patch notes describe game stability and performance fixes, though this update does not bring those fixes. It is still important enough to fix other issues of the game.


The stability and performance fixes will be released later this month.

Here’s what’s new in the latest Borderlands 3 patch notes:
