Borderlands 3 has confirmed its next-gen upgrade to be available day and date alongside Microsoft and Sony’s new consoles: 10 November for the Xbox Series X | S, 12 November for the Playstation 5 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea and on 19 November in the rest of the world. All players who own or purchase both a copy of the game and a next-gen console will be able to download the upgrade within the same console family for free.
“Borderlands is a ground-breaking, record-setting, critically acclaimed franchise where millions upon millions of gamers have experienced one-of-a-kind gameplay, mayhem, and fun across multiple generations of gaming technology.”
“With Borderlands 3 continuing to grow and launching this November on next-generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles, there has never been a better time to jump in and join the fun.”
Randy Pitchford, Executive Producer and Founder of Gearbox Entertainment
Borderlands 3 has been fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles’ processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe. The Xbox Series X and PS5 will display Borderlands 3 at 60 frames per second in 4K resolution during single-player and online co-op, and all next-gen consoles will support three- and four-player split-screen for local multiplayer. In addition, vertical split-screen for two-player local co-op will be available from the get-go on next-gen consoles and will also be added to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions via a free update on 10 and 12 November respectively. Add-on content and save files will be brought over.
There’ll be more news to come on The Borderlands Show on 29 October 9:00 AM PT.
