Comicbook.com’s Tanner Dedmon has been covering the upgrades to Borderlands 3 on next gen for a few months. Here’s what he had to say recently.
“Borderlands 3 is coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with Gearbox offering a free upgrade to those who purchased the game on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, the developer announced this week,” Dedmon began. “The new version of Borderlands 3 landing on next-gen consoles will sport some of the upgrades we’ve seen confirmed for other games and will support progression between the generations so that players don’t lose anything when they make the jump. New content including another game mode and additional skill trees for the playable Vault Hunters is also planned for Borderlands 3 and will be released later this year.”
“Gearbox made its announcement during the PAX Online event where it showcased Borderlands 3 and some of its other games it has in the works like Godfall. Details about the transition to next-gen platforms for Borderlands 3 were discussed with confirmations that there would be free upgrades if you already have the game,” he continued. “PlayStation 4 owners will be able to upgrade their games to the PlayStation 5 versions and Xbox One owners will get a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X version. DLCs, saved files, and everything else you’ve got will accompany you to the next generation.”
