Gearbox Software and 2K Games are looking into the possibilities of bringing cross-play feature with Borderlands 3. This information has emerged from a recently released statement by the publisher regarding the cross-play.
“Cross-play is something we’re looking at closely, but we don’t have anything to confirm or announce at this time,” a 2K spokesperson said.” With no confirmation or denial, it’s good news for all the fans. It makes us have a hope that Borderlands 3 can be played across platforms together. However, do not take this statement as confirmation.
Microsoft storestarted the rumor that the next Borderlands game will support the cross-play feature. The crossplay line at Microsoft Store however, has now been removed. With that said, it could be nothing but a mistake which the computer giant corrected.
Personally, the statement is giving me positive vibes, because if it was any other publisher, it would just say that they have “no plans” or can’t comment. It seems like they are actually going to make it happen or at least it’s under consideration.
The cross-play feature seems possible with Borderlands 3, especially with Sony now allowing the feature in titles like Fortnite and Rocket League. The upcoming looter shooter in the Borderlands series also seems very suitable for cross-play. If it happens, it’s going to be the biggest addition to Borderlands series.
Friends being unable to play games together with different platforms is a weird thing in 2019. If Borderlands 3 crossplay happens, other developers/publishers will also follow the footsteps of 2K Games and implement the feature in future games exactly the way gamers want.
Just don’t expect this feature to be part of Borderlands 3 when it releases on September 13. Because it can be added to the game at a later date. Whenever that happens, we will let you know first.
To experience the crossplay, players can pre-order the 4th main entry in Borderlands franchise from the official website. Gearbox has now also revealed information regarding the game’s different editions and season pass following various leaks.
Borderlands 3 season pass comes filled with new content which includes 4 campaign DLC packs featuring new stories, missions, challenges, Butt Stallion weapon skin, Butt Stallion weapon trinket and Butt Stallion grenade mod.
Season pass is included in Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition and Collector’s Edition. All of the DLC content will arrive a year later after the game’s initial launch date.
Is Borderlands 3 a cross-platform title or not, we will know after the game launches on September 13th for Sony’s PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Epic Store. Those who can’t wait can play Borderlands Game of the Year remastered Edition.
