No Comments

A brand new Borderlands Three trailer has simply dropped, confirming a number of essential particulars that had leaked since its announcement final week: the release date, and the fact that it will be a six-month Epic Games Store exclusive. The trailer additionally exhibits split-screen in motion, and 2K has since confirmed to us that “Borderlands 3 will support two-player split-screen on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.” No point out of PC, there, you’ll discover.

You can try the brand new trailer in a tweet beneath (it doesn’t look like on YouTube at time of writing). You’ll discover that the display divides at 0:47 and 0:51, and that on the latter second, it seems as if two completely different gamers are controlling completely different components of a brand new mech – maybe one is a pilot and one other the gunner.

We reached out to 2K to see if they will verify this, asking particularly about PC help, and acquired the assertion above.

That suggests Borderlands Three would be the similar as Borderlands 1, 2, and the pre-sequel, which supplied split-screen natively on console, whereas PC gamers had been capable of mod it in.

On that time, Borderlands 3’s six-month exclusivity interval on the Epic Games Store is a particular difficulty. Though it’s on the roadmap, Epic’s retailer doesn’t at present provide an equal of the Steam Workshop, which gives a simple method for modders to bundle and add their work. Hopefully Epic types it out, or else Steam modders do when Epic’s exclusivity elapses in April 2020.
