I’ve always loved borderlands. I bought BL2 and the season pass on pc when it first launched and loved it. When I saw the handsome collection I thought it would be a good time to get back in this incredible franchise. The value was great and way cheaper than if I wouldve bought the remaining DLCs for BL2, TPS and it’s season pass on pc. On top I could make some use of my xbox one and play with my friends online and in splitscreen!
Everything at first seemed great, 60 fps, 1080p, great textures. But there was one thing that feeled off. The field of view. It’s terrible. 70. On ‘‘next gen console’’. You can’t see jack sh*t! I’m always turning around trying to find the enemy, and don’t get me started when I’m gunzerking, the guns fill all the screen!
I’m used to play at 100 on PC, but this could be a little to much. But 70 is waaaaay to low, it’s the same as the xbox 360. I’ve seen a lot of complains about this and I even have a few friends that won’t jump on console and get the handsome collection for this very reason. I even read that many people are getting sick and nauseous because they always need to spin around to see the enemy.
I’m sure the PS4 and xbone can run at higher FoV. It would be easy for gearbox to implement in the option the setting FoV with low (being 70) and high (being 90) and put a little disclamer saying high may reduce performance. They done that with bioshock 1, you could turn off or on vsync for better performance and they warned you about it.
What do you guys think? I’m a bit turned off by the handsome collection cause of this thight FoV, I can’t see properly!
