‘Borderlands 2 VR’ to Launch on PC This Fall, PSVR Version Gets Free DLC Soon


Borderlands 2 VR (2018) is finally headed out of PSVR exclusivity, with launch on PC slated for sometime this Fall. The PSVR version, which debuted on PS4 late last year, is also getting a massive DLC drop for free, coming September 6th.

At PAX West yesterday, Gearbox Software announced that the free DLC campaigns coming to PSVR in September will feature a bevy of content including: Captain Scarlet and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, according to Eurogamer.

Additionally, you’ll also be able to play Creature Slaughter Dome, the Mechromancer and Psycho classes, all five Headhunter DLC packs, both Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Packs, and the Vault Hunter Heads and Skin packs.

'Borderlands 2 VR' Review – An Ok Version of a Good Game

And yes, the so-called Bad Ass Mega Fun pack (BAMF pack) DLC is also headed to Borderlands 2 VR for PC.

Other than that, there’s not much else to go on at this time for the PC version. Neither its publisher 2k Games nor developer Gearbox Software has mentioned which platform it will land on, be it Steam, Epic Games Store, Oculus Store or otherwise. We assume the standard SteamVR-compatible headsets apply, although it hasn’t been specified yet.

It’s also unknown whether it will bring co-op play to the game, as it’s sorely lacking in the PSVR version. We’re hoping for yes, although it’s possible the studios want to maintain basic feature parity with the PSVR version (pre-DLC).

    You can play all the borderlands games now in vr using vorpx but no motion control use.Jesusavesouls!

    • Krzysztof Kiersznicki

      yeah but in vorpx i want to vomit after 10 mins ;[

      • Michael Hill

        I haven’t tried the vorpx solution but I did play this game on a stereo 3d HMD using Nvidias 3d solution and it worked really good, better than almost all my other games. I’ll stick with what I have unless this new version includes co-op.

        • J.C.

          Yep, co-op is the sticking point for me as well. I’ve already PLAYED all this content, the only thing that would convince me to go through it again would be doing so with friends. The borderlands series was never really meant to be played solo, why take it out of the VR version?

        • JesuSaveSouls

          So they have software to port non vr games into 3d hmd and is it with the software of nvidia ?

          • Michael Hill

            Yes it’s Nvidia’s drivers for 3D monitors, 3D Vision, which works with games with Direct3D support. I used an Avegant Glyph HMD instead of a monitor and 3D glasses though, the software recognizes and uses it like 3D monitor. Games without good support can be further modded by a program called 3DFix which applies mods from the 3D community (3Dmigoto, Helix mod) to render the 3D or fix shadows, reflections, decals, particles, ect that don’t show up right.

          • Wildtz0r

            Nvidia killed off 3D vision support.

          • JesuSaveSouls

            So on the oculus or quest with vrdesktop can you make non vr games just 3d sbs so I can activate the 3d sbs option in vr desktop ?

      • JesuSaveSouls

        True and I don’t know why they can’t implement snapturn.

      • Jarilo

        Sounds like a personal problem. Time to get some Cobra VR legs.

    • Jarilo

      + the Co-op works. Still, the motion controls will be totally worth it. Borderlands 2 does work great with VorpX though.

  • Rosko

    great news

  • Yay!

  • Wouldn’t be fun without my buddy. We’ve played all of the Borderlands together. A lack of Co-OP could be a deal killer.

    What is the price for all of this? Are we talking about a reasonable $30 to $40, or something more crazy like $60? The game is no spring-chicken, it’s pretty old.

  • GrimmyReaper

    I don’t see why they don’t just add support to Borderlands 2 itself rather than sell it as its own game.
    And if they are so desperate for money, fine. Sell it as DLC for Borderlands 2.
