Gearbox has started a free weekend for Borderlands 3 across all platforms, which includes PS4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia. You can access the game on any of these platforms for no extra cost. Well, except on PS4 where the free to play weekend is limited to PS Plus subscribers. If you do not have Plus then you are not getting that chance to play. To access the free weekend players will need to find the Standard edition of Borderlands 3 on the platform of choice, and download that. You cannot access the free content through the deluxe editions.
