Direct from Twitch Con 2018, we have our first proper look at gameplay from Borderlands 2 VR.
A brief clip of the game running at the PlayStation truck at this weekend’s event was posted on the Borderlands Instagram account on Saturday. It shows a player tackling the PSVR-exclusive using a Dualshock 4 controller. That allows full freedom of movement, though obviously you don’t get the same kind of realistic tracking that you would get with the PlayStation Move support. It looks like aiming is assigned to head-tracking, much like it is in Resident Evil 7 or if you play Skyrim VR with the gamepad. We’re not yet sure if Move controllers will allow for smooth locomotion, but we do know you sadly won’t be able to use PSVR’s Aim controller.
As for the gameplay itself it looks like everything is running pretty well. We know that Borderlands 2 VR is going to include the entire original game, though it won’t feature any kind of cooperative play, nor will it support any of the DLC that was released the first time around.
Borderlands 2 VR reaches PSVR on December 14th. Don’t expect to see a PC version of the game at least this year.
