Borderlands 3 has officially come out for next-gen consoles and Gearbox is providing several new updates to the game with it. In a tweet from the official Borderlands Twitter account, it was said that Borderlands 3 will now support 4k 60fps gameplay and have faster load times for both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
You can check out the tweet below:
The game will now also allow for four-player split-screen play on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. This means it will now be easier than ever to play with friends through the full campaign.
If you already own Borderlands 3 and want to upgrade to the next-gen version of the game, then there is some good news.
People playing on the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 will not need to buy the game again, because Borderlands 3 will have a free next-gen upgrade. This upgrade will transfer all progress and purchased DLC to the new console, so don’t worry about having to start over at the beginning.
These updates come at the start of the second Season Pass, which arrived on Nov. 10, adding a new game mode known as Arms Race to the game. This rogue-like game mode is made for teamwork and will likely benefit from the addition of a 4-player split-screen mode.
Arms Race will also appeal to people who like nods to past games in the series. The new “murder-show” game mode will be hosted by Axton and Salvador, past vault hunters from Borderlands 2 now acting as ECHOcast commentators.
There will be more content, such as the Director’s Cut, that will be releasing later in 2021 for those who purchased Season Pass 2.
Borderlands 3 is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
