Borderlands 2 Won’t Have PvP

By   /   4 years ago

If you’re a fan of Borderlands and you liked its Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay, then boy, do we have bad news for you.

In an interview with Gamerzines, Gearbox Software’s VP of Marketing Steve Gibson revealed that Borderlands 2 WON’t feature PvP! Just why exactly?

It was hardly used, so what we invested in instead was the co-op stuff. The Badass Ranking System is kind of a measure stick which says, ‘Look how awesome I’m doing in this world.’ So what we’ve invested in rather than Arena stuff is drop-in/drop-out split-screen co-op, and being able to re-adjust your questline a little bit to match up with other players.

There you go! It was dropped simply because it wasn’t popular enough. Now don’t get too dismayed. Maybe a patch can remedy this in the future, no?

Borderlands 2 is set for release on September 18 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
