Now that we are getting Borderlands 2 on PSVR this December and it was revealed to include no multiplayer it got me thinking a bit. Personally I actually recommend that everyone play all the Borderlands games solo at least once. That’s how I started playing them and I probably have more solo hours than coop still at this point. My first playthrough of each new game is usually a solo one. That being said I still think its a tragedy that it won’t be coming with coop but it got me thinking about why that is…
The only reason I can think of for not including coop in a game like this is that the PS4 system simply wouldn’t be able to handle it in VR. (Maybe a dev can chime in on that one.) Which I could definitely see since 4 people launching grenades and fighting huge baddies all at once can be quite taxing on the frames sometimes.
However. Myself and quite a few others have been hoping for a Borderlands remaster for some time now. And considering how the game is much older than B2, and when you consider what a remaster for current gen would probably look like. (The same as the Handsome Collection ie: 60fps, 1080p, increased draw distance, larger FOV, increased details, particles, etc…) I have a feeling if Borderlands were to be ported to PS4 with optional VR mode included, I think it might be able to handle coop whereas Borderlands 2 cannot. The game is definitely a lot easier to run than its sequels, PC players will probably have experience with that.
Thoughts? A Borderlands remaster with VR mode included would be a dream come true for me.
