In addition to this, with the power of SHiFT players will be able to engage in cross-play. You will be able to enjoy cooperative play with friends regardless of where you purchased Borderlands 3.

You will also be able to transfer saves between your Steam and Epic Games Store versions of Borderlands 3. Players will need to move your save files manually, however. There is no official service or method to transferring save files, and Gearbox warns players that they will be at risk of potentially losing their saves if it is not done properly.
