Google Stadia has now been out for nearly a month. In that time, many gamers have got their hands on the streaming service. Overall, it has received mixed reviews. There are those that truly do like not having to shell out hundreds for a new console. Others haven’t had the most user-friendly streaming experiences, and at times, it feels like the Stadia was rushed before it was really ready.

If there’s one category Stadia shines in, though, it’s the library of games. So many great titles were available on day one of launch, with more great games to follow. From RPGs to first-person shooters, there is something for every type of gamer on this platform.

Now, Borderlands 3 is officially available on Google Stadia. This looter-shooter is one of the best games on the market right now, so it’s definitely great to see it on the Stadia platform. There is only one caveat. The game is the October version. Thus, the latest patches and new DLC content are absent.

According to 2K, these updates won’t be available until sometime in 2020. That’s unfortunate news for Stadia users who’ve wanted to get their hands on this latest Borderlands installment for some time now.

It seems like 2K wants to make sure these updates are perfect before they’re officially rolled out on the Stadia platform. In the meantime, there is a lot of content to enjoy in Borderlands 3. You’ll get to go from planet to planet with a selected vault hunter, taking out baddies and earning legendary loot along the way.

The environments in this latest installment are so beautifully detailed. Each has a unique color pallet and characteristics that give the areas life. Gearbox Software really spent a lot of time mastering these designs.

The vault hunters also have never been better. Each character has a unique bag of special abilities that you’ll want to use over and over. For example, FL4K has a group of beasts that can help him out in battle. While they attack enemies, you can snipe enemies from a distance. Or, if you’re Amara, you can use astral projection to deal a ton of damage to enemies that are close by.

Borderlands 3 truly is one of the best games out on the market right now. Stadia users are in for a great treat. Sure, they won’t have access to every bug fix and they’ll have to wait for Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC, but at least they’re coming eventually.
