Borderlands 2 VR announced for PlayStation VR

Borderlands 2 VR announced for PlayStation VR

From the intense, chaotic action to the vibrant colors to the interesting characters, experiencing Pandora in virtual reality sounds like a blast. To celebrate such an occasion, the PlayStation 4 makers are releasing a demo for their ridiculously well-received Astro Bot: Robot Rescue, along with new content for the Rainbow Six styled shooter Firewall Zero Hour.

Borderlands 2 VR brings the iconic world of Pandora to life like never before. In the virtual skin of a Vault Hunter and face the awful Handsome Jack with billions of weapons available.

A new feature called BadAss Mega Fun Time, or BAMF Time, has been added to Borderlands 2 in order to boost the VR experience, slowing down time so players can dodge bulltes and use their action skill to wreck waves of bandits, skags, and more.

The original four playable Vault Hunters from Borderlands 2 are back, along with their special abilities and BAMF-modified skill trees. Other facets of balance have been revisited to adjust to Borderlands 2 VR's restriction to single-player only play too. For the first time you can drive in first person mode and use your headset to aim the mounted weapons. Players will steer with the PlayStation Move controllers, while aiming with their headset. Players will also have the choice of preferred movement styles. It also includes some additions that are unique to the VR experience.

Shoot-and-loot with bazillions of procedurally-generated guns, each with their own capabilities and modifiers. Procedurally-generated shields, grenades, relics, class mods and more round out your Vault Hunter's arsenal for maximum power and mayhem.

The announcement trailer for Borderlands 2 VR has been released. While some fans may be upset the developer is seemingly twiddling their thumbs and doing anything they can to avoid working on the next installment, hopefully, those looking to satisfy their Borderlands craving can do so with the PlayStation VR version.
