Splitscreen gaming is a dying feature in today’s video game market. With the inclusion of online multiplayer in nearly EVERY major title, many developers are reaping the benefits of one player per console. Even franchises that built their name on splitscreen gaming such as Halo have migrated to one player per screen claiming that in order to provide a higher frame rate, the game will no longer support splitscreen play.
So what are the chances that Borderlands will also migrate to one player per screen? There’s talk that Borderlands 3 will move into the realm of mini MMOs such as Destiny and the Division, but of course it’s just talk. If Borderlands went this route, it will undoubtedly cause controversy in the community, but what’s the solution to the splitscreen dilemma, or is there even a dilemma to be solved?
Personally, I don’t mind splitscreen with the larger televisions that are made today. However, it definitely dilutes the visual effects of games due to the narrower visual scope. Playing with a friend usually is a fair trade off for this sacrifice in my opinion.
What do you guys think?
Does Borderlands need to consider moving into the quasi MMO realm?
Strictly online multiplayer and no splitscreen.
It ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Splitscreen is fine.
Invent a new way to play with people in the same room.
