Borderlands 2 VR (which nobody asked for, it came out of nowhere that much) will also stop being a PlayStation VR exclusive.
Gearbox Software detailed at PAX West what we can expect in Borderlands 3’s endgame: „GUARDIAN RANK – If you’re familiar with previous Borderlands‘ Badass Rank system, the basic idea is the same: you can unlock incremental stat improvements that apply to all your Vault Hunters. As you gain experience, you fill a special Guardian Rank XP bar. Every bar you fill unlocks a Guardian Token, which you can spend to unlock bonus stats across three distinct trees. The further you progress, the better the rewards available to you.
TRUE VAULT HUNTER MODE – This is Borderlands 3‘s take on New Game+. The enemies will be tougher and the loot will be better compared to your Normal mode conquests. Whether you select Normal or True Vault Hunter when starting up a new campaign, your character’s mission progress is unique to each playthrough. However, your Vault Hunters’ stats and equipment are shared across both modes.
MAYHEM MODE – After completing the campaign, you’ll activate a mysterious terminal aboard Sanctuary III that offers three Mayhem Mode difficulty levels. Enabling one of these Mayhem Modes ups the ante on risks and rewards across all worlds: enemies get increased health, shields, and armour, while you get bonus cash, Eridium, experience gains, and chances for better loot (including “Anointed” gear). Mayhem Mode also applies a random selection of modifiers called Mayhem Mods to every planet you visit. For instance, you might get a Mayhem Mod like “You’re a Wizard,” [oh great, Harry Potter – the ed.] which reduces the damage players do with normal bullets but increases their elemental damage,” Gearbox writes. You can also see on the image below what the game will get during the autumn and the winter.
Borderlands 2 VR will launch this autumn on PC, so the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift, for example, will get the game with all its DLC. Borderlands 3 is out on September 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, where it will be an Epic Games Store-exclusive, with additional Denuvo.
