It is confirmed, depending on your region you may not get a Super Deluxe Edition on PC, even if you have the Collector’s Edition. I am from the United Kingdom in case you are wondering. I read so many news sites in my region confirming that the collector’s edition had a Super Deluxe Game, example: https://uk.ign.com/articles/2019/09/12/borderlands-3-release-date-collectors-edition
Is Gearbox happy to take our money? Yup! Is Gearbox allowed to mass advertise this and get away with it? Yup! What do they even gain by selling a standard and deluxe COLLECTOR’S EDITION? More money due to confusion!
PC version pre-order page (UK):
Xbox version pre-order page (UK):
If you look at the store pages you will notice one main difference one says “Borderlands 3”, the other says “Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe”, can you even believe that?
In other words, if you want to call me an idiot/fool/moron (or whatever) for not reading small print, fair point, I am indeed those things for trusting Gearbox and believing that if I followed their marketing and went straight from a video to a pre-order I would have everything.
Pre-ordered Collector’s edition on EGS, no idea where the heck I am supposed to find my Super Deluxe Edition bonuses (or what the heck I was thinking - should have gone for Xbox One X, then waited for Steam release). Redeemed two codes that came with my game (Neither of which said anything about Super Deluxe Edition, on them); one was for the game itself and the other was for golden weapon skins, beyond that I can’t find anything that says “Super Deluxe Edition”.
On the EGS itself it says “owned” on Borderlands 3, but the Deluxe Edition says “unavailable”, the Super Deluxe Edition says “unavailable” and the Season Pass says “buy now”. Are you kidding me? Do you mean to tell me I received a DOWNGRADE on a COLLECTOR’S EDITION? Wtf!
And before anyone says “cHeCk ThE mAiL bY PaUsInG aNd GoInG tO sOcIaL”, I have obviously already done that, no toy box pack, no retro skins, no neon skins, no Gearbox skin pack… Nice one guys, you choose an inferior launcher (People said it was bad, but holy **** never thought it was THIS bad) and now you have completely ruined my BL3 experience.
If there is anyone else here experiencing this BS, please comment below.
That cardboard box you describe as a “steelbook”, what even? Unless one of your supplier’s has messed up and given me the wrong stuff something is definitely wrong here.
