Borderlands 3 is one of our most-anticipated games of the year and it releases on 13 September for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. From what we’ve seen so far, Gearbox Software will deliver one amazing looter-shooter and we just have to sit here and wait patiently for the game to release. However, some gamers out there do not have that luxury. Enter Trevor Eastman, who will get to play Borderlands 3 early due to him being terminally ill.
Trevor has stage 4 esophageal (liver and stomach cancer) and he does not know exactly how long he has left to live. That’s why it looks like Gearbox will bring him an early copy of Borderlands 3 in June to play. Sure, there is some negativity surrounding Gearbox right now with the Epic Games Store exclusivity as well as microtransactions debacle, but this is such a great thing to do for a dying fan.
This was one month ago and now, it seems like Gearbox took notice of Trevor and will be sending someone to likely bring this fan an early copy of the game, or at least give him several hours to play Borderlands 3. Trevor posted an update on the situation, explaining that:
It is simply fantastic to hear that this terminally ill fan will get to play Borderlands 3 early. It is a great move by Gearbox and even though some will probably claim that they are doing it for the PR, it doesn’t really matter, as it will bring joy to a dying gamer and that is all that should really matter.
