Prior to the announcement of Borderlands 3 this year, Gearbox started reinvigorating interest in the franchise with Borderlands 2 VR. The game has been exclusive to the PlayStation VR since its launch in December but it looks like the game is finally heading to PC.
Borderlands 2 VR for Windows PC has now been rated by the ESRB, indicating that a release is imminent. We knew last year that the game had an approximate six-month window for PSVR exclusivity, which ran out in May. With that in mind, the PC version could be dropping any day now.
Borderlands 2 VR is an intriguing idea but the game does come with some unfortunate pitfalls. The VR version only contains base-game content and none of the DLCs. It also didn’t support co-op play on the PSVR but we hope that might change for the PC launch.
The other issue is what platform Borderlands 2 VR will release on. So far, we know that Borderlands 3 is going to be an Epic Games Store exclusive until some time in 2020. However, the Epic Games Store traditionally doesn’t sell VR titles, so we could see this appear across Steam and Oculus at the same time, assuming no other paid platform exclusivity deals have been taken.
KitGuru Says: I would be interested in trying out Borderlands 2 VR but not having co-op would take some of the fun out of it. Did any of you try this one out on PSVR? Or will you be giving it a go when it comes to PC?
