Borderlands 2 VR has been officially been announced, and I can’t be more excited!
It will be released for the PlayStation VR 14th of December this year.
Hello, travelers! Today marks the first day that we can finally talk about Borderlands 2 VR! It’s a moment we think will have fans joy-puking their faces off.
It all starts December 14, when Borderlands 2 VR launches on PS VR. And we didn’t just cram Borderlands into a headset and call it a day – we did copious research into how VR plays best to update the experience so you can now fully sink your eyes into the wild and mayhem-filled world of Pandora with new VR-specific mechanics and skills! – Brian Burleson, Producer Gearbox
Not only do we get the whole Borderlands experience, but also a few new features exclusive to the VR version such as;
*BAMF (BadAss Mega Fun Time) Activating BAMF Time will give you the speed and reflexes of a rabid skag, allowing you to dodge bullets, pull off 360 no-scope headshots, and even use your Action Skill to fight off hordes of bandits, bullymongs, and whatever else Pandora might throw at you.
*All original four character with added BAMF Time upgrades to previous abilities
*Updated co-op skills such as Maya’s “Res” ability, which now is called “Empathy” – causing Phaselock to deplete half your current health, damaging enemies based on how much health you lost, and doubling healing during BAMF Time.
*First person perspective while driving, by using the PlayStation Move controller and moving your head.
