My interest has piqued in this after the disappointing Rage 2 (the more I see of it the less I want to play it) and being less than impressed by latest footage of The Outer Worlds (that needs a lot of work presentation wise).

There has been some good feedback too with the gunplay reportedly being much improved. It was fine in the other games but just felt a bit flat. They sound awesome but lack the weight that other FPS have. Hopefully the driving is also improved and I've never liked how the game dumps you back to the last checkpoint. There seemed to be a lot of unnecessary backtracking imo.

BL3 let's you mail weapons to your friends, and it'll be waiting for them next time they sign in.

So did Randy Pitchford just confirm cross play for Borderlands 3?

Have people signed up to the Vault Insider Programme (VIP)?

Sign up and get more free stuff for BL2/Pre-Sequel/BL3. It's mostly putting in codes or watching vids to get points to redeem but I think Golden Keys will still be a thing later too. I've already unlocked a couple of guns for use in BL2.

Sorry but asking people to hit up a website to get you referral points is against the rules here I am afraid -Tasuki-

I didn't realise the inks for the game are done by hand, they’re all done by humans so it’s very mechanical. It takes twice as long to make an asset in this game as it would if it was a photoreal game.

Which is kinda mind blowing considering the size of the games.

So the skill trees are avaible on the Borderlands 3 site to play around with. I personally haven't had a chance to play around with them but will so here in the next few days.

Because of MHW:Iceborne I'm still debating on whether I should get BL3 as well as which edition day-one. Does anyone know how much the Season Pass will cost if bought separately?

@WanderingBullet You can't purchase the season separately yet, it will most likely become available after the game is released. You can work it out roughly by calculating the difference between the standard edition and deluxe (or whatever it is called) edition.

@WanderingBullet As much as I love Borderlands, I’m more than happy to wait a little while to pick the game up and wait for a slight price drop as they seem to happen so quickly now.

I'm aware of this.

Based on the Super Deluxe Edition the Season Pass is valued at $20. Usually, you save between $5-10 on Season Passes when you purchase Deluxe (or whatever it is called) Editions compared to buying them separately. Thing is someone on Reddit said that the Season Pass cost $50. Which makes buying the Super Deluxe Edition seem worth it. Whether it's true or not I'm not sure. Personally, it just seems too good to be true.

I’m still having trouble deciding who to play.

  • Fl4k seems OP, and also basically Lilith from bl1 (disappear and heal on short timer), plus a pet. It would feel too much like something I’ve already done.
  • Amara seems okay but fragile. And she’s built around medium range, but a fl4k shotgun build would seem to outshine any of hers, so why?
  • Zane seems really trixy, with the clone and drone needing thought to take full advantage of. His shield seems worthless. He seems to have a high skill cap, but maybe is harder to cruise on....
  • Moze seems fun, but I’ve heard IB is basically less powerful than regular guns, doesn’t last long, and her only healing is via grenades.

I think I will be trying out Zane first. Fl4k seems interesting but my son wants to play him so. The siren I am not really interested in playing. One I have done Sirens the last two games and two I am not big on melee characters playstyle in BL. Moze just seems meh to me.

With Zane I like the idea of his shield and the drones seem like they would come in handy.

So after playing BL3 for a few hours I have to say this game is rough. Graphics wise the game is great, gameplay is good too but alot of options from the first two game are gone.

For one thing the option for making the split screen either horizontal or vertical is gone which is a major disappointment for my son and I. Also the on screen text is very small to the point where it's hard to read. It's not a bad game just something that a patch of two can fix. Other the that it was fun what I played.

So after.thinking over it I think I will be taking this game back. The big reason I got this game was to play it with my son and without vertical splitscreen the game is pretty much impossible to play horizontal. I know alot of people are telling me to play it solo and such but that's not why I got it.

I looked around and apparently I am not the only one who feels like this alot of people who bought BL3 for couch co-op are having a the same problem with it as I am.

I am hoping that maybe with enough people unhappy with the lack of vertical splitscreen that Gearbox will patch the option in but as of now Gearbox says they don't have any plans for vertical splitscreen.

This game has turned out the Biggest Disappoinemt of the Year gamewise for me.

It's ran great for me so far on the Pro. That said I have only played solo. FL4K is my dude...

Game is spectacular, exactly what I wanted. Haven't jumped online yet but even solo its such a blast. Lots of little improvements to the game play from the previous titles. Loving it so far, we'll worth the wait!!

@Tasuki we get it lol.

Anyone having any trophy issues? I've unlocked more than 10 skins and 10 vehicle parts but neither has popped for me. No big deal just curious if anyone weeks had problems.

@Tasuki This is interesting. I wonder why they took it out? I can't really think of any reason why they would do that.

All I can suggest is stick with it, although I'm guessing you've already tried that. My wife and I play it in horizontal split-screen. I can't remember why we chose to do this, it was something to do with the TV we had back when the first Borderlands came out.

Vertical is better overall, but horizontal does have its advantages. Eventually you'll get used to it, although it might take half a playthrough, by which point you've already had half the game. I wonder if enough people get onto 2K they might patch vertical split screen in?

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.
