New Borderlands 3 Ads In Borderlands 2 Causing Issues

Borderlands 3 Gameplay Trailer Revealed (VIDEO)

With only a week remaining until Steam fans are able to get their hands on Borderlands 3, Gearbox Software is prepping for a new host of players. One way they are doing this is by advertising the most recent installment in the previous entry, which has been available on Valve’s platform for years, but that appears to be causing issues for some people.

Reddit user dookarion recently took to the pcgaming subreddit to share their experience upon recently booting up Borderlands 2. As stated above, Borderlands 3 will be arriving on Steam next week, and a new update for BL2 is causing some problems for players. Essentially, the update has implemented a new SHiFT system ins BL2, as well as The Pre-Sequel, which requires users to sign up with a new username before continuing to play the game.

As can be seen in the Reddit post above, the new update is causing all sorts of issues, including crashes, matchmaking problems, and more. Other users then went on to describe their experiences with the new Borderlands 2 update, expressing displeasure with the way Gearbox is handling the implementation of the new system, almost as if they are pressuring players to pick up the newer game. Some have even said that the Borderlands 3 ads popping up in-game have caused Borderlands 2 players to be kicked out of the game.

Borderlands 3 is currently available on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and will be coming to Steam on March 13th. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
