It has been confirmed today that Borderlands will be released for download on Steam. Steve Gibson of Gearbox also noted some additional details about the PC version of the game. First, the PC graphics will be the best out of all versions of the game (provided your computer can handle turning the graphics all the way up). Also, if you find a sweet gun and want to show it off to all your friends, the PC version allows users to export the item cards to .jpg files. Finally, the menus and UI is specifically designed to work with a mouse, which is great.

I can’t wait to finally try out the game.
