Game publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Entertainment confirms that video game Borderlands 3 can be upgraded to its next-gen versions.
The developers confirmed that the next-gen upgrade of the video game will be available day-and-date alongside Microsoft and Sony Interactive Entertainment’s new next-gen consoles. The next-gen version will be available at launch on the Xbox Series X/S on Nov. 10, while the PlayStation 5 version will be on Nov. 12 for the US and select few countries. The rest of the world will be on Nov. 19.
Players who already have the game can download the upgrade within the same console family for free.
“Borderlands is a ground-breaking, record-setting, critically acclaimed franchise where millions upon millions of gamers have experienced one-of-a-kind gameplay, mayhem, and fun across multiple generations of gaming technology,” said Randy Pitchford, Executive Producer and Founder of Gearbox Entertainment. “With Borderlands 3 continuing to grow and launching this November on next-generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles, there has never been a better time to jump in and join the fun.”
The next-gen version will feature 60fps in 4K resolution during single-player and online co-op modes. All next-gen versions will support three to four player split-screen for local multiplayer. Vertical split-screen for two-player local co-op will be available from the start on next-gen consoles. It will be added later on Xbox One, and PS4 versions as a free update on Nov. 10 and 12 respectively.
All add-on contents and save files can be ported to the next-gen consoles within the same family. Physical copies can be played on the Xbox Series X and the standard PlayStation 5 console models.
