A post-October update will be available on Stadia, with the latest version only available sometime next year for players opting for the Google platform.
Unfortunately, something not brilliantly launched on Google Stadia, the first officially launched streaming platform. Once it turns out that despite the promises, we can often only play with an astonishingly long latency, even with exceptionally good bandwidth, the trouble for players is that they can get games here more expensive than on any other platform. It looks like Gearbox is reluctant to release the latest version of Borderlands 3 into the platform’s repertoire even after the initial decline in enthusiasm.
At a news event, Google said what’s new on Stadia in the times to come, and now the latest piece in the Borderlands series is due to be included in the titles available for purchase. The only problem is that those who choose the streaming platform will not receive the version with the latest updates:
“Upon release, the Stadia version of the game will include all updates and fixes released by October 24.”
This means we can’t even expect updates to be sharpening in the last two months this year. So much for the reassurance that the October 24 update was already the third since its release and has fixed the most glaring bugs so far, but it’s definitely weird why Stadia players, who also pay full price, don’t get the latest Borderlands 3 experience .
Google also said that the soon-to-be-released first major add-on to the game, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, will be released in early 2020, with the base game likely to receive current updates as well.
