Hunt the booty and weapons on the alien planet of Pandora, and in virtual reality no less, what else could you wish for Christmas?
Gearbox Software has announced the VR port of its open-world shooting game, the 2012 Borderlands 2, which will hit PlayStation VR on December 14.
Players can choose any of the four main character classes of the main game: Siren, Commando, Gunzerker or Assassin, and immerse themselves in the colorful alien game. The world as they search for money, giant weapons and countless punch lines from the game's NPC-dozen prank game.
Players who book before the release date of December 14 will also have access to the PlayStation theme. The four main characters of the game, but check out the immersive action that is offered in the trailer below.
Borderlands 2 was an incredibly fun sequel based on the charming artistic style and winning mood of the original 2009 Georgia I, and its move to virtual reality is just the latest AAA game to find a viable way to adapt to the requirements of PSVR, HTC Vive or Oculus hardware.
Joins the likes of Bethesda & # 39; s apostle or Fallout 4, both of which showed the possibilities of FPS action and open-world exploration in a virtual space. The difficult navigational problems of virtual reality have advanced a lot in recent years, even if the point-and-click teleportation mechanics used as an alternative solution can not match the smoothness of the normal console game.
Borderlands 2 VR is waiting for help with a new slow-motion feature called BAMF Time (if you can not say it) that will slow the action in the battle, which makes it easier to shoot the assailants with chainsaw.
We shuddered instinctively at the idea of navigating the game's weapon and sound menus with VR motion controls, but we're keeping an open mind for now.
