If you aren’t sure what you are going to play on your next gen machines, well 2K has you sorted with Bordelands free next gen upgrade which is available now.
As well as that there is the new content coming as part of the season pass, and a heap more in the directors cut.
All of that is detailed below, the short answer is more cartoony shooting on your Xbox Series X and PS5.
Borderlands 3’s next-gen upgrade is now available on the Xbox Series X / Series S. It will also be available on the PlayStation 5 when the console launches on November 12.
Borderlands 3 has been fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles’ processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe.
The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 display Borderlands 3 at up to 60 frames per second in 4K resolution during single-player and online co-op, and all next-gen consoles support three- and four-player split-screen for local multiplayer.
In addition, vertical split-screen for two-player local co-op is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / Series S and will be available on PlayStation 5 as soon as the console launches.
All players who own or purchase both a copy of Borderlands 3 and a next-gen console will be able to download the next-gen upgrade within the same console family for free. All add-on content and save files can be ported to next-gen consoles within the same family, so players can jump back into the action right where they left off. Players who own a physical disc of Borderlands 3 will need the Xbox Series X or standard PlayStation 5 console model that includes a disc drive to take advantage of these features.
Today also marks the launch of Designer’s Cut, a brand new Borderlands 3 downloadable add-on that creates new ways to play by introducing an additional Skill Tree for each Vault Hunter and Arms Race, a roguelike experience that’s fast-paced, challenging, and consistently remixed by randomized elements.
By putting the focus squarely on guns and gameplay, Arms Race makes every loot drop meaningful and exciting. Meanwhile, players looking for fresh ways to experience Borderlands 3’s shooting and looting can wield the power of the additional Skill Trees to develop their own unique Vault Hunter builds. Each Skill Tree offers an exciting new Action Skill, as well as novel passive abilities.
Designer’s Cut can be purchased individually or as part of Season Pass 2.
Season Pass 2 will include two all-new downloadable content add-ons – Designer’s Cut and Director’s Cut – as well as brand new cosmetic items.
Both Season Pass 2 and the Designer’s Cut add-on are now available for purchase across PC, Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / Series S.
