The next-gen upgrade for Borderlands 3 has received two dates. It will be released for the launch of the Xbox Series X/S and PS5. A new Borderlands show has also been announced.
2K Games and Gearbox have announced that the next-gen upgrades of Borderlands 3 will start together with the upcoming consoles. That means, from November 10, 2020, you can tackle the loot shooter on the Xbox Series X. PS5 players will get it on November 12, 2020.
If you already own Borderlands 3 on one of the current platforms, you can easily switch to the next-gen version – of course only within the same product family. The add-on content and saved games may be transferred to the next-gen consoles of the same console family.
But be careful: if you have a disk version of Borderlands 3, you need the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 with a drive to use this function. According to the developers, the title is fully optimized to take advantage of the performance advantages of the new next-gen consoles. The promise is 60 FPS in 4K resolution in single-player mode and in online games.
In addition, the creators assure that all next-gen consoles support local multiplayer for three and four players. In addition, the vertical split-screen for two players will be available from the start. This feature will also be available in the versions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 via a free update that will be released on November 10 and 12, 2020.
In today’s press release, Gearbox and 2K indicated that there is a lot more exciting news to be revealed in a special edition of the Borderlands show. It will air on October 29th on the Borderlands Twitch channel.
In recent news, it was confirmed that the Borderlands 3 new Arms Race Mode features “a totally new game,” and it will be available this month.
