Ever since Borderlands 2 VR was announced as a timed PSVR-exclusive, the narrative surrounding the game’s lead up to release has been pretty consistently positive. It’s one of the most popular and celebrated shooters of the last 10 years and it’s distinctive cel-shaded art style should translate to the limited resolution of most modern VR headsets well.
However, there have been some concerns. Obviously the most obvious concern is the lack of any of the post-launch DLC being included and the absence of multiplayer. Borderlands has always been a franchise squarely focused on it’s cooperative elements, so it feels like a major missed opportunity to remove that. Additionally, Borderlands 2 VR will only support the DualShock 4 or PS Move controllers — but not the PS Aim controller.
Thankfully, as of today, we have new details about the movement options. Previously it seemed like smooth movement would only be possible on DualShock 4, as seen in this video, but as it turns out, according to the official Borderlands Twitter account, you will in fact be able to do teleportation movement, “direct motion” or smooth movement, or a combination of the two with both the DualShock 4 and PS Move configurations.
We should clarify our last reply… You can use direct motion, teleportation, or a combination with *both* PS Move and DualShock controllers.
