If you haven’t played Borderlands 3 yet and want to try it out for free this weekend is the perfect time to do it. From now (actually since 11/21, yesterday) until 11/25 @2:59am PST Borderlands 3 is free to play on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Free play promo is over.
To get the demo installed on your machine go to the game store on your preferred console’s online game store, either XB1 or PS4, and search for the “Standard Edition” of Borderlands 3. Then go ahead and click on “Try Free Demo” to install the game. Note that this prompt will not appear on the “Deluxe” or “Super Deluxe” versions of the game in the online stores, so be sure to select the Standard version.
Should you decide you enjoy the game enough to purchase it you’ll find that all editions of the game are 33% off until 12/2, right through Black Friday. All game loot and progress acquired during the free trial will carry over to the full version should you decide to buy it. Black Friday sale has ended.

I’ve played through the game two times and had a good time in the process. The game also has some decent endgame content with Mayhem Mode 4 recently being introduced. Now that many of the weapon and class nerfs and buffs have been rolled out it’s actually a good time to experience the game for the first time.
If you do try it out let me know what you think of it in the comments section.
