Borderlands 2 VR: Pandora Is Back in a Big Way!

Coming December 14th, 2018, PlayStation VR owners can pick up a copy of Borderlands 2 VR. 2K and Gearbox Software announced that Borderlands 2 VR will bring the beloved game to the revolutionary virtual reality platform for the very first time. The critically-acclaimed shooter-looter on PlayStation VR will bring this lively world even closer to gamers hearts.

Borderlands 2 VR Makes an Old Game Feel Fresh

The news broke yesterday, 10/9/18, that Borderlands 2 would be getting yet another release. Except, this time it is going to be just a bit more exciting. Borderlands 2 gave gamers endless hours of enjoyment and bringing it into VR has the potential to refresh Pandora and make this 6-year-old game feel exciting all over again.

Well, this is exciting!

Experience the Borderlands universe like never before. Players can open life-size chests filled with treasure, guns, and have the chance to inspect the world from every angle. The real-world aiming system will completely immerse anyone wearing that PlayStation VR headset in Borderlands 2. There’s no telling how intense the action will get when the world on the screen comes to life all around you.

New Perspective and Features

Borderlands 2 VR includes additional features not found in the original. One that has the potential to transform how players experience Borderlands 2 VR, besides the game actually being in VR, is the new “Bad Ass Mega Fun Time” (BAMF Time) ability. Gamers will be able to slow down time in order to give them the opportunity to set up their next attack. Players will also have access to a Teleport option, allowing them to transport themselves across Pandora with ease. However, even with the Teleport option being included, it doesn’t seem as though the world is going to be any less extraordinary to explore on foot or in a vehicle.

Claptrap… in VR!

2K and Gearbox Software enhanced the Borderlands 2 VR experience as well, adding a first-person perspective when driving vehicles. Players will be able to navigate the landscape, accelerate and steer with the joystick and use their headset to aim the vehicles weapons. Furthermore, if players use motion controllers, they can interact with the menu systems in an entirely new way. Point, click, drag and drop, seamlessly flow through the menu system to save time so more can be spent playing Borderlands 2 VR.

Virtual Reality Gaming – The Future?

There are high hopes for the future of Virtual Reality in gaming and the technology is still only in its infancy when it comes to consumer headsets like the PlayStation VR. However, the headset is still capable of delivering a thrilling experience. Borderlands 2 is a massively popular title and bringing it to the PlayStation VR seems like it’s going to be a perfect match.

Borderlands Remastered Rumored To Be On The Way

According to recent reports, the original Borderlands could be getting a second chance on the latest generation of consoles. The game initially launched back in 2009 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. At the time, the shooter managed to put a new twist on the genre by adding RPG elements to an FPS. Fans who’ve only had the chance to play the later games through the Handsome Jack Collection could finally have the complete series.

Video Game Publication, Gematsu, reports that the Korean Game Ratings Board rated a title named Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. While this has not been officially confirmed, the news indicates a remake of the game is heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in at least South Korea.

Could Boardlands Be Coming Back?

The first Borderlands launched to critical acclaim almost a decade ago. Critics praised multiple facets of the game including gunplay, loot, characters, and its cartoon-like cel-shaded art style. Although, many disliked the game’s bland setting which was a barren desert for most of the experience. The game also introduced the series unique weapon design that randomizes millions of different guns into the world.

Unfortunately, the developer behind the series, Gearbox, said Borderlands 3 will not be making an appearance at this year’s E3 press conference. Even though over the past couple of years, there have been many hints that suggest the next game may not even be named “Borderlands 3”, which would suit the series’ sarcastic sense of humor.

We here at Gigamax are big fans of the Borderlands series and can’t wait to see an official reveal for the remaster. Hopefully, Gearbox will show up to E3 with at least some news about a sequel. Until then, it looks like we’ll have to rely on the games we know and love to hold us over.
