Borderland 3 is getting a free PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrade – and a four-player splitscreen


Border 3 The latest game to adopt an encouraging trend is – giving gamers a next-gen upgrade without having to pay for it – and in this case, it’s a game that would be welcome to console gamers who have 4K TV sets .

The image above (and embedded in the tweet below) has all the details, but in the exact case you can’t make a fine print. The primary news is: On the PS5 and Xbox Series X, the game will now run at 4K resolution at 60 frames per copy. At seconds, can run both higher and smoother than any console Border 3 today.

Last year, Digital foundry It was also found that the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X only succeeded in playing the game at 3200 x 1800 resolution and 1080p at 30 fps, or 60fps, allowing you to sacrifice either the resolution or a smooth frame rate, and the performance mandatory. Even though it wasn’t as compatible – a true 4K60 campaign could make a big difference.

The gearbox isn’t promising to be the same as the owners of the cheaper $ 300 Xbox Series S, of course, since the console that’s targeting 1440p resolutions instead of 4K. But the other news today is a brand-new splitscreen mode that supports 3 or 4 players on the same TV, allowing you to bring up to three friends to play on one console. It is coming on an Xbox Series S, as well as the X and both PlayStation 5 models.

And if you plan to keep on trucking with a current gen PS4 or Xbox One, you also get a consolation prize: you’ll soon be able to split your current two-player splitscreen mode vertically rather than horizontally. Will be able to get a better view in the desolate sky of the game.

Other games are available for next generation upgrades for free: The Witcher 3, Destiny 2, And Dead by daylight, And – on Xbox, anyhow – any game signing up for Microsoft’s smart delivery program, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla And Cyberpunk 2077. Games that will pay you include Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, Control And seems NBA 2K21.
