The biggest Christmas 2018 videogame release for PlayStation VR was most certainly Gearbox Software’s popular shooter Borderlands 2 VR. However, in the run-up to launch the studio confirmed it would only be the core experience with none of the DLC included. The team did say that any future updates would highly depend on player feedback which first saw its effects earlier this month with the release of Aim Controller support. That has now continued with the confirmation that all the DLC for Borderlands 2 VR will soon be released for free.
The original Borderlands 2 which launched in 2012 has quite the treasure trove of DLC content, with a quick browse on Steam bringing up 46 different packs. Now quite a few are different skins to customise your character but there are some goodies to be had, including different character classes such as the Mechromancer as well as campaign expansions to greatly increase the size of the videogame.
With Gearbox Software quite clearly stating on Twitter that: “We’re bringing you ALL the DLC for Borderlands 2 VR straight to your eye-holes!” that should be one colossal update, so PlayStation VR players may need to clear some hard drive space.
The recent Aim Controller update didn’t just include additional controller support, it helped to improve Borderlands 2 VR further by including options for swapping buttons and sticks, movement refinements and simple things like toggling the crosshairs on and off. Gearbox Software did mention at the time about: “improvements to the HUD and height offset along with fixes to an unreachable chest, teleport, and more,” which could well land alongside the DLC.
Borderlands 2 VR was well received when it first launched with VRFocus giving it a maximum five-stars in our review, saying: “it’s somewhat of a surprise that Borderlands was the first AAA the studio decided to go with. A pleasant surprise, that is, as Borderlands 2 VR is most certainly a highlight of this year’s VR releases and one of the best titles yet to hit PlayStation VR. Its still Borderlands 2, sure, but you’ve never played Borderlands 2 like this before.”
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Borderlands 2 VR, reporting back with the latest updates.
