I was wondering if it’s possible to still play online with friends on Borderlands 1? I tried to join my friends game and it wouldn’t let me, giving an error that they were on a different version. Also, for some reason I lost all my progress after not playing for a while(few years honestly).
What platform are you on?
I’m running on PS3
I played on Xbox earlier today
The progress loss might be because you’re playing a different version of the game than the one you were previously playing on. I know when I was playing BL1 on Ps3 I had to restart completely because I couldn’t save on my characters on my own game after I purchased it digitally myself because they were created when I had the game downloaded from a friends account.
As for the non being able to join your friend part, did you make sure you had the update for the game downloaded?
As mentioned, you need the Feb. 2015 update to enable on-line play on PS3, since the original Gamespy matchmaking servers shut down. (See this thread for details)
Thanks for the response. I did all the updates and I can see my friends online. When I tried to join their game it gave the error I mentioned before. I can send them an invite and they can’t join mine either. Not sure what’s going on.
My progress was originally on the store bought physical disc. I honestly think I might have formatted or deleted my save. It’s been years since I played our even had the ps3 plugged in. Oh well, I’ll just have to work my way through again.
If you’re unable to join your friends even with a new character, you can file a support ticket here:
You should get an auto-reply fairly quickly, and a human response in ~1 day (depending on traffic volumes at the support desk)
Thanks. Just submitted a report.
