Cross your fingers and wait for the third of this April! Are you excited?
Well, do you want to know the cause of your excitement? Borderlands: game of the year edition releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms on April 3rd! And what’s more? PC players who own the original Borderlands on Steam will be able to upgrade to this edition for free!
Reportedly, there are many features attached to this edition which were previously not on the original Borderlands. A FOV slider is included in all platforms including the PC so any player regardless of their system will have this at their disposal.
Aside from a FOV, the most notable upgrade is that the game will have HDR support on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X and the game is playable in 4K. Character models and other graphics are a few among the list of updated. The game will support up to four players playing in split-screen mode on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the PC version will not.
Gearbox producer Patrick Fenn answered questions from those on Twitter who wanted to know more about the updated features. He acknowledged a question asked by a PC player regarding the split screen mode and said that the split screen feature is exclusive to consoles.
This brand-new version of the award-winning shooter/roleplaying game hybrid will also support the SHiFT player rewards program, allowing players to use Golden Keys to unlock special in-game items and rewards. Well, what’s not to love about this news?
