PS4 BL GOTY Connection Issue

You should have received an automated email with a ticket number. Usually, a human response follows in 1-2 days. However, that may be longer given we’re on launch day + 1…

Thank you very much for your timely reply. We will sit it out :slight_smile: Meanwhile Claptrap makes for a nice screensaver :smiley:

same problem… fingers crossed they can fix it

Submitted my report. Hopefully this gets addressed in the near future. Been fun going back to experience Borderlands again, but it would be a lot more fun if I could team up with my friends online.

We were able to play yesterday after 10-15 attempts (I joined him through the party chat), but it’s inconcistent.

Trying to play now and having the same issues again.

Apparently it is possible to add a workaround by opening the correct ports, see

I will give this a test tonight and report back!

Same problem here. With three of us only two of us can connect to each other. Third person is unable. We tried all combinations and hosting. Seems to be that two only was the magic number for us.

no luck on this one.

Are any updates in the works? I have not recieved any updates

I forwarded those ports and was able to play public networking setting with a friend!

Filed a report and I hope this gets fixed soon. I like playing this game but I’d like to play with my friend.

I’m glad you got it working, did you both forward the ports?

Glad someone is finding a workaround, but I am more interested in the problem being addressed at the source. I’ll either play a bit solo, or play other games until this gets fixed properly…hopefully sooner rather than later.

2 full days and 2 tickets submitted, with no response and no public acknowledgement on social media for this nasty bug. That’s pretty sad on gearbox’s end, especially considering how many people this is affecting.

It’s possible to miss bugs when a game ships, but this is a very critical issue that should have been at least addressed by Gearbox. I’ll give them until tomorrow, then I’m returning this nonsense.


Exactly the same issue here. 4 of us have tried to join each other etc… And no luck.

Yeah it’s really a shame that this is even an issue, I mean seriously come on gearbox. I tried to join a buddy for over an hour, nothing, so we played far cry no problems playing together, then I played path of exile, no problems and that game is free to play, I had to buy borderlands and cant even connect with friends. This is very unacceptable.

Same issue here, already filed a ticket, hopefully it gets sorted quick so I can play the game with friends

I just bought my friend and I a copy of the Remaster only to find out we can’t connect to each other after an hour of trying with several different methods. I submitted a ticket, but I hope this is addressed soon.

same issue here…been trying for the last 2 days (since release) and cannot connect to anybody online through friend/invite only. same error message as everyone else. it’s really annoying considering we used to play this online without any major issues in 2009 on xbox360/ps3. do you guys think they’ll sort this out any time soon or are we gonna have to solo it?

Have any of you tried opening ports manually as suggested in the link in post 38 ?

Just curious because if that does resolve the issue, then it would look like the PS4 version of the game at least isn’t properly requesting the open ports (or some option on the PS4 is blocking it.)
