Multiplayer and Online Services Restored to PS3 Version of Borderlands

on February 3, 2015 11:06 AM

Since its debut in 2009, Borderlands has been a prominent series on both the last-gen and current-gen consoles, and while the online experience for the original title has been hampered by being offline for some time, those on PS3 can now jump back into Pandora for more lootin’ and shootin’.

After being offline last year due to the shutdown of GameSpy Technologies and their servers hosting the game’s online components, developer Gearbox Software announced that multiplayer services for the PS3 version of Borderlands has now been rested, with a new matchmaking system in place across both North America and Europe.

Alongside service being restored to the game on PS3, other changes to the game’s online components include a new system of organization for players online, allowing users to sort friends alphabetically and to also see users that are online and in-game in Borderlands, alongside improvements to the game’s voice chat support and a fix for the “And They’ll Tell Two Friends” trophy. Gearbox also mentioned that updates for players in Japan will also be coming soon.

Borderlands is available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, with these new updates for the PS3 version of the title now available to download.
