Borderlands 2 Is Latest To Receive The VR Treatment

We've been waiting for Gearbox Software to announce a true third Borderlands game for about six years now, and though that game still remains a mystery, the company has something extra special to tide fans over.

One unknown right now is if Borderlands 2 VR will include any of the DLC expansions as part of its experience or just the base Borderlands 2 game, which is still a massive amount of content for a virtual reality looter shooter. A teleportation option will also be proposed to reduce the risk of motion sickness while driving vehicles will now be subjective.

The one exception is that Borderlands 2 VR will NOT include the series' beloved four-player co-op.

Borderlands 2 originally came out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles back in 2012.

Some of the game's skill have been updated to take better advantage of virtual reality, and all vault hunters will have access to a new feature called Bad Ass Mega Fun Time, also known as BAMF Time.

There's an announcement trailer for Borderlands 2 VR attached below if you'd like to see a bit more of what the game will look like from a VR perspective. Gearbox has not confirmed whether they have any plans to bring the VR version of Borderlands 2 to any other VR devices. Though this VR version will largely be a straight port of the PlayStation 4 version of the game found on The Handsome Collection, there will be a few differences as well. You'll drive your vehicle with the joystick on your controller and aim the weapons with your headset.

Get Virtually Rich: Borderlands VR brings shoot-and-loot mechanics to VR with bazillions of procedurally-generated guns and gear, each with their own capabilities and modifiers.

Borderlands 2 VR will release for PlayStation VR on December 14. Plus, lust after procedurally-generated shields, grenades, relics, class mods and more for maximum power and mayhem!
