Cross-play made fun of in 2021.
Borderlands 3 will be available on both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 with cool new features. The gearbox was announced at PAX Online tonight.
First, the Pillage Shooter has a free next-generation upgrade that applies to all purchased content and saves. Basically, we will pass everything on to the next generation.
Gearbox emphasized that Borderlands 3 runs at 60 frames per second and runs at 4K resolution on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 single player. The next generation version also includes two local co-op features. Free for all players. This is an option to split the screen horizontally or vertically with a 4-player split screen and 2-player co-op play. The split screen for 4 people looks like this:
Here’s what the split screen looks like (Note: the split screen option is also added to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game via a free patch).
Meanwhile, Gearbox said Borderlands 3 players can expect more add-on content in late 2020. A new skill tree for each Vault Hunter. The new skill tree comes with new action skills.
For example, FL4K has a new Trapper skill tree that emphasizes the shield and viability of both FL4K and pets. FL4K’s new action skill is Gravity Snare. This is a trap that throws an enemy into the air before hitting it on the ground. Enemies caught within a radius will interrupt the attack and provide FL4K with crowd control skills for the first time.
In other FL4K news, they are getting a new pet option, Hyperion Loaderbot. This can be specified in different ways as you descend the skill tree.
And finally, Gearbox teased Borderlands 3 cross-play in 2021.
