Borderlands 2 VR (2018) is finally headed out of PSVR exclusivity today, with the game’s Steam page ready to give PC VR headset users a crack at the VR port of the popular looter shooter.
Update (October 22nd, 2019): The Borderlands 2 VR Steam page is only moments away from letting users with HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or Valve Index into the game’s massive world.
Update (September 23rd, 2019): Gearbox Software and 2K Games updated Borderlands 2 VR Steam page over the weekend, now showing an October 22nd launch date for the game.
The original article, which discusses the free DLC coming to the game at launch, follows below.
Original Article (August 31st, 2019): 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.
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).
