Today during a PAX East presentation Gearbox Software announced Borderlands 3 finally with a great debut trailer. However, there was no mention at all of VR support for the new game. Instead, they discussed the much-requested recent addition of PS Aim Controller support. Then, they confirmed that all of Borderlands 2’s past DLC would be released for free this summer for Borderlands 2 VR.
This is big news for fans because when Borderlands 2 VR launched it not only lacked PS Aim controller support, but it lacked any of the DLC packs that had been out for years in the non-VR version of the game. Now, it will finally be content-complete.
After that moment in the stream they also alluded to “more information about VR” but stopped short before revealing more news. My money is on an eventual PC VR port, which should be coming in just a few months. Probably around the same time the DLC releases so that it debuts on all platforms at the same time.
Obviously the big missing feature is still the lack of multiplayer support, but they have always said since the very beginning that this was being redesigned for single player so that’s likely never going to happen.
We praised the depth and sheer size of the game in our review, but weren’t a fan of the PS Move controllers due to the imprecise movement and lack of analog stick. The PS Aim Controller does certainly help with that a bit.
