Borderlands 3 probably won't have 16-player co-op, despite Xbox One's power

Hoping for an expanded co-op headcount in your next generation Borderlands? Think twice. Gearbox hasn't formally announced a new Borderlands game for Xbox One, but Ausgamers has managed to winkle a bit of info as to the hypothetical project's online features out of Borderlands 2 creative director Paul Hellquist. (Dev, Xbox One)

I think 6-8 would be great, just wish that each player got their own loot. Sharing loot can get annoying at times.

I think they could support a big headcount if there was something like in Destiny, where you're matched to players providing it makes sense with what you're doing at the time. Otherwise, I think the "intimacy" problem would apply.

Agreed..

No fps game has created AI unique or challenging enough for more than 6-8 players.

I think they need to worry about making this game fresh again with a few new ideas.

4 players is fine as it is imo. Otherwise too many people stealing too much loot.

Oh God I loved BL2... So many great memories... I hope BL3 comes soon.

4 is perfect, 16 players is insanely stupid.
IcicleTrepan  +   690d ago
Just don't think it would make sense for more than 4, both prior games were designed on this.

If they do manage a 16 player co op, they'd better have at least 10 different character classes at launch.
CRAIG667  +   690d ago
10 different classes would too much and could potential make the game very unbalanced. 4-6 is fine by me.
OmegaShen  +   690d ago
Four players is good, it would make the bosses to easy to beat if we can have more then four. Plus like someone said, loot would be hard to get wih 16 players.

I say that because people join your game just to get loot and level up. If anything, I want more insane type of guns ( water gun that shoots corrosion or slag, SMG that shoots fireballs and s on) as well as more classes and bigger area.
Excalibur  +   690d ago
Personally I wouldn't want to see any more than 5-6, any more than that you lose that sense of co-op and you enter into the realm of a multi-player feel with everyone running around in their own area doing their own thing.
