Borderlands 3 Will Have Free Next-Gen Upgrades
Gearbox Software recently dropped their latest DLC for Borderlands 3, which has surely been keeping players occupied with an acid trip of an experience. That said, during PAX Online, Gearbox revealed that fans will be able to take advantage of a free upgrade to the next generation of consoles.
As detailed on the game’s website, Borderlands 3 is going to be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and it will be bringing a few hefty upgrades along with it. For starters, the next-gen consoles will be able to run the game in 4K at 60fps, and up to 4-player splitscreen will be available for those looking to get some couch co-op in. In addition to this, vertical splitscreen in two-player co-op will not only be available on next-gen consoles, but also in a free update to current consoles.

However, one of the big pieces of news to come forth was in regards to the next-gen upgrades. While it seems the majority of devs and publishers are going the route of free upgrades, some aren’t, so it’s good to have confirmation that Borderlands 3 will offer the free upgrade for current owners.
Borderlands 3 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with the next-gen versions set to arrive at a later date. 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:
