Right off the bat, I am a huuuuuuge Borderlands fan. Started playing BL1 in college, got BL2 on launch night and played it for an entire day straight with my friends, and still play it to this day on my rusty old 360. Now there’s a shiny new BL on the horizon and I’m trying to decide if I should get it.
Now I already have BL2, BL: TPS, season passes for both, Krieg and Gaige, and all the headhunter packs for BL2. I’ve played most of that content, but not all (there is just too much to handle!). BL2 is in my top 5 all-time favorite games, so playing it again on my PS4 in 1080p and 60 FPS sounds awesome! But is it worth it? I’m gonna make a pros and cons list, and I want as much feedback as possible. I’m hoping as a community we can come up with a great guide for other people on the fence.
1080p resolution and 60 FPS; see Borderlands like never before!
Every single piece of DLC (does this include the paid heads and skins?)
FoV slider? (need confirmation)
4-player splitscreen (could be good or bad)
No new content
No cross-platform saves (i.e. my 360 to my PS4)
Start from scratch (could also be a good thing, if you like grinding)
No new features
Can I just add one thing? You know what would have made this a definite buy for me? 12 playable characters across both games. Yes it’s lore-breaking, yes it’s unbalanced, and yes it would be tough to pull off, but that one feature would have made me skip work to pick it up at midnight tonight. I would have loooooooved to play as Jack through both games…
As long as we’re being wishful thinkers, toss in Brick, Lilith, Mordecai, and Roland, bringing the count to 16. But that’s just a fantasy for me
