Old Borderlands Games are Getting Review Bombed on Steam

It looks like Steam users once again are not happy with another game being exclusive to the Epic Games store. We reported yesterday that Gearbox’s upcoming Borderlands 3 will be a timed-exclusive on the Epic Games store and today it seems that many Steam users are airing their frustrations in that decision by review-bombing Borderlands 1 and 2 on Steam. Looking at all reviews on Borderlands 2 it has a “Very Positive” rating, but under recent reviews it is marked as “Mixed”. Looking at those reviews we can see a ton of negative reviews have come in since the Borderlands 3 announcement.

We are seeing the same type of reviews we saw on old Metro games as well. We’ll just give you a screenshot of one of them.

So as you can see gamers are quite upset. Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford did send out an interesting tweet that if Half-Life 3 is announced soon he “will use all the leverage and influence I can to get our game on Valve’s store as soon as reasonably possible.”

So what are your thoughts on Borderlands going exclusive on the Epic Games Store?
