Due out in just over a month from now, Borderlands 3 is closing in fast, and so some of the game's finer details are starting to spill out into the open. In particular, Gearbox has said that the title will come with two performance modes on PlayStation 4 Pro. You can either "favour resolution", or you can "favour performance".
Opting for resolution will allow for 4K support, but the frame rate will be capped at 30 frames per second. Go for performance, however, and you'll get an increased frame rate cap of 60 frames per second, with the resolution stuck at 1080p. Always nice to have options, isn't it?
The developer also confirms that Borderlands 3 will support HDR. "With 4K and HDR enabled, the game looks amazing. Everything from the weapon in your hands to enemies to the FX from combat look especially crisp and detailed in this mode. Night fall is rendered in much darker blacks, and the killer sky boxes really pull you into the world that the team has built. If your display is capable, you’ll want to play around with these settings for sure," Gearbox's Scott Velasquez tells the PlayStation Blog. You can toggle between 4K and HDR individually, too.
Do you like it when games give you performance options? Keep a steady frame rate in the comments section below.
60fps every time. It is nice to have the choice though.
Some games gives you a headache in 4K because of the stutter, so this is a good news. I'll probably end up playing in 60FPS.
HDR is so awesome...
60FPS with HDR sounds like the best combo
More like 60ish FPS and 4kish, eh?
This is good news but it’s usually the standard these days with big games that support Pro and X. I always favour resolution for 4K over performance for 60fps unless a game like FIFA or Call of Duty. Sometimes there a third option called Visual which adds more details to a game like vegetation, draw distance etc.
4k and hdr for the win.borderlands 3 will look amazing.word up son
I don’t even have a 4K tv (yet) so it’s a complete no-brainier for me!
why can't we have both
60 FPS all the way; I do not care at about HDR. :3
I'm a tramp who can't afford a fancy pantsy 4k tele and PS Pro so I'll be happy with 30fps and 1080p.
Until they fix the fact that videos saved when HDR is on messes up the image on playback I can't use the feature 😔
I have my copy pre-ordered and expect the same choices on the platform I have ordered it on. With the Artstyle, I don't know if a higher resolution would make too much difference and if the 60fps option is consistent, then I may opt for the higher frame rate. I would rather have a locked 30 to a game that's unlocked and unstable, rarely holding 60fps and averaging 50fps as it jumps up down.
Guess I will wait for completed edition on ps5
With 4k and hdr and 120fps! Woop woop ¯(ツ)/¯
Yeah this should be a staple of all games that are built for the PRO. I have a 1080P projector I play on, I just prefer the scale. And it's always awesome to have the option of more bells and whistles graphically or a FPS boost over 4K
I have 4k tv but I'll choose performace / 60 fps all the way.
I refuse to buy this game after this
Screw Gearbox Screw Take Two
Borderlands 2 looks and performs great with my Pro and 1080p tv at 60 fps. It plays so smooth. I will be very pleased if BL3 looks and performs as well.
@Rhaoulos I have never seen stutter in any hames I played but that eould be due to the dev and not 4K.
"Impossible. Consoles are too weak to do 60fps" lol.
@GodGamer Well, technically consoles are less powerful than the average gaming PC, especially towards the end of a console's life. That being said, I highly doubt any £300 PC would run a modern game in 4K.
@Rhaoulos Well I didn't say they weren't but you can upgrade PC so power is only relative to the latest tech being utilized. The average PC gamer has a weaker PC until they upgrade. Any game can run at 60fps, but just like PC compromises would have to be made. Consoles are actually at their best at the end since devs max out its power ala The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Shushima. God of War Asension from PS3 looks better than a lot of games this gen for a reason. You get diminising returns on PC due tonits nature of upgrading wow consoles are fully utilized.
I hope the choices between 60 fps, visuals as well as blur slider and fps cap option will find it's way to every ps5 game next gen.
@Nightcrawler71 Same here. 😆
@KnightWolf And thats important too you not tax evasion and getting money back... 😐 😔
Animal abuse also no please.....
60fps for me. I'm not a pc player so don't sit right in front of the screen so 4k is pointless to me.
