Terminally Ill Fan Will Get to Play Borderlands 3 in June

Terminally Ill Fan Will Get to Play Borderlands 3 in June - MMORPG.com

One Borderlands 3 fan with terminal cancer will be playing Borderlands 3 in June. Trevor Eastman had taken to the Borderlands 3 Reddit last month to talk about his diagnosis with esophageal, stomach and liver cancer and to ask fellow Redditors to help him reach out to Gearbox and 2K to play the game early. As a result of the collective effort, Eastman said that representatives will be flying out with a copy of the game for him to play. "Thank you all for making this dream come true," he wrote.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to give you all that were kind enough to upvote and tweet about my situation an update. One of the people from 2k has been talking to me(not sure if I'm allowed to say who so I won't mention a name) and he's making it happen. They're flying somebody out at the beginning of June most likely to give me a copy of the game. I just wanted to thank you all so much for helping make this dream come true. It means the world to me that you all cared enough to do that for me.

Some other well-meaning Redditors are hoping to see Trevor added to Borderlands 3 as an NPC. A petition has launched to see if they can make that happen.
