Borderlands 3 Is Coming to Next-Gen, New DLC Coming This Year
Borderlands 3 might have just released the final DLC pack for its season pass, but Gearbox isn't finished yet. Expect next-gen versions and more DLC soon.
Borderlands 3 just released its fourth content pack with Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck. It seems like another solid entry for Gearbox’s baby. However, that content drip is far from over. At their PAX Online panel today, the team pulled back the curtain on several new updates for the game. Most excitingly, the game is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X with a free update for people who own the game on current-gen consoles. This version will support 4K 60FPS in single-player and have the option to play up to four players via split-screen. An awesome addition if you can get four people together for some couch co-op. That’s not the only good news though.

Current-gen versions of Borderlands 3 are also getting an update to add vertical split-screen in co-op. There’s also another DLC pack on the horizon. Details are still relatively scarce; however, we do know that each Vault Hunter is getting a fourth skill tree to work with. In the stream, Gearbox only gave us a look at FL4K, but we should be seeing more soon.
On top of all that, it sounds like Gearbox might have some plans for cross-play in the near future. They didn’t go into it much today but are saying we’ll hear more about it next year. All told, it’s quite the exciting day for Borderlands 3 fans. We’re only two days removed from Krieg’s DLC dropping and there’s already tons to look forward to.
Borderlands 3 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game will come to PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later date. If you want to watch the show in full, check it out below.
