Current-gen ‘Borderlands 3’ players will get free next-gen upgrades

Four-player split screen co-op is also being introduced

Gearbox Software has announced that Borderlands 3 will be ported to next-gen consoles.

The developer shared the news during a PAX Online panel over the weekend, confirming that current-gen players of the game will be granted free upgrades for next-gen console versions of the game.

The next-gen version of the game will also enable players to experience Borderlands 3 at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second in single-player mode. A new three- and four-player local co-op split screen mode will also be introduced when the game hits next-gen consoles.

The panel also announced that all the Vault Hunters class will be getting an extra skill tree for players to experiment with in the future. Gearbox showcased FL4K’s new Trapper skill tree during the virtual event as an example. FL4K’s new skill gives him a Hyperion Loaderbot as a pet that he can now control.

Gearbox Software has not announced a launch date for Borderlands 3 on the PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

In other Borderlands 3 news, the game’s fourth campaign DLC, titled Psycho Krieg And The Fantastic Fustercluck released on September 10. The add-on follows Krieg as he tries to “process his traumatic memories by blasting his inner demons to bits, and try not to succumb to lunacy inside Krieg’s fractured mindscapes”.
