Borderlands 2 VR Comes to PlayStation

Return to planet Pandora in VR soon as Gearbox is bringing their acclaimed shooter title Borderlands 2 for PlayStation VR.

Originally released back in 2012 for all major platforms, open world action role-playing first-person shooter game Borderlands 2 from developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games is finally getting a VR treatment as it heads to PlayStation VR this year.

From December 14, the sequel to 2009's Borderlands game will enter the world of virtual reality through an update and you can own a copy for only $49.99. This is a moment many fans have been craving for so long and is finally happening.

They have added a new trick as well as BAMF Time (Bad Ass Mega Fun Time), which is much like the bullet-time effects from The Matrix movie and will allow players to slow down the speed of the game and make plans for some carefully executed attacks.

This way, you will not have to be very brave about confrontations and dodging bullets but also let you pull off 360 headshots without any scope. Use your Action Skill to fend of gangs of bandits on Pandora as one of the four playable Vault Hunters.

Multiple skills that previously required a co-op partner o experience are now upgraded for single-player, such as Maya's "Res" ability. You will be driving vehicles in first-person perspective and the game will support Sony’s PlayStation Move motion controllers.

As you are driving through the lawless lands, aim the vehicle’s guns using your headset to feel the thrill of looking another way while driving. To spice up the VR world, they will soon bring on more guns to create more mayhem and make things more exciting.

Although the original game had multiplayer options, the re-release will ditch that and will be single-player only experience. Besides that, the developers didn't just cram the whole thing into a headset to be done with and did a lot of research about what they are up to instead.

After bringing the game to PlayStation 4 in 2016 The Handsome Collection, Gearbox Software were immediately convinced of using the advantage of the system and tap into PS VR’s full potential to present the fans something great and here they are now.
