GamePointsNow has the inside scoop on the next Borderlands title
Hope not, next Borderlands needs to be on current consoles not lastgen ones.
I think this post is a load of rubbish because he says something completely different in a different interview http://kotaku.com/gearbox-i...
Yes he says Gearbox aren't working on a Borderlands title. If you read the piece this is being developed by 2K Australia
You know what they say? This ain't no place for the wicked.
That's what I thought?
Cant see it not going next gen since porting from PC to next gen wouldn't take them long at all.. If its slated for a 2015 release they would be cutting out around nearly 20 million people by then. So I see this going next gen. If not then theres always PC which has been doing next gen type graphics and better for years now. Maybe an exclusive deal has been struck and there waiting until E3 to announce?
It's being officially unveiled at PAX East this week I hear
This is probably for the Walking Dead type games they are making within the Borderlands universe.
loot system has to be better everything can't be a grind only to get average loot guns need to be more diverse guns need to be better I love Borderlands 1 but hate Borderlands even though it improved everything from the first game besides the loot rewards. In the first game we kept getting good weapons and shields every few levels but in borderlands 2 you had to grind by beating same boss 30 times to be able to get good loot or hack your save after playing borderlands 2 i hated gaming so much that i didn't touch another game for 4 or so months also this needs to be on next gen not current, if it launches on current gen than you can bet that they will make next gen ports
Yay more borderlands
wtf? why last gen?
I'm not sure it's such a good idea to skip currentgen in favor of lastgen's install base. I know I'm starting to skip on lastgen games and/or getting them for PC instead if they're not releasing on nextgen. I'm probably not the only one. You still can't deny the install base of lastgen but we have to move on someday.
sure, but he's there chance to test new ground. personally I'm not affected by this, most probably will get the PC version IF this rumor is true.
True, but by the time this game comes out, its going to be well over a year since the release of current gen consoles.
Doesn't explain why they wouldn't also do current-gen. At the earliest, this would be out this Fall and PS4/XBO user base will be even bigger then. I can see them not doing JUST current-gen and PC, but to exclude it at that point, makes no sense.
Why not both ?
If a new borderlands comes out only of last gen hardware it will flop so hard and put 2k out of business.
Oh this explains why we never went to the moon in borderlands 2
What last gen? I am disappoint At least make it cross gen...
So a Prequel... LAME AS! On last-gen too? EVEN MORE LAME AS! I'm sorry but if this becomes true, I'm not buying it.
Next gen please, the past BL games ran pretty badly on PS3 and Xbox 360.
They run pretty badly on PC as well. Framerate dips to low 40s - mid 30s. And it's caused by the CPU. Maybe it would have been better if they made it DX11.
Depends on your hardware...I run bl2 maxed and i never drop under 60fps
@Tempest317 i5 3570k @ 4.2GHz HD7850 2GB @ 1140/1350 6GB RAM Maxed out - framerate fluctuates between 35-120fps.
BL2 runs flawless on my pc. Physics are unreal. i7-3770 CPU Gtx670 gpu.
try turning physx off. It distroys my FPS with an r9 290 and i5 2500k. It ran ok when I had my hd7850.
@Buljo i5 2500k @ 4.5 GTX 670 @1130 8GB ram I couldn't tell you what the minimum is, but its above 60. I don't run AA though, as aliasing isn't really noticeable with the constant movement. And now that I think about it, I may have had physx turned down. I can't really check since I don't have it installed anymore but those would be the only 2 settings not maxed. EDIT: Totally still had it installed. Everything maxed including Physx, FXAA off.
@Buljo I meant to say it on my last post but forgot...why would you think that its a cpu problem when you're running an excellent cpu, but a quite aging video card? I wouldn't expect a 7850 to be able to max settings and sustain better than 60fps.
Why would you want it on PS5 and Nextbox?
It does? I've played countless hours of both on PS3 and have never noticed anything.
Its pretty noticeable when on bigger screens or the action gets hectic.
Oh my god! An article about a game and not hardware/specs! OT: Id rather the game be on current gen though, I bet it would look amazing!
Though i agree with most here about not being Next-Gen especially since Borderlands 1 and 2 runs like crap on PS3/360, i'd be lying if i say i wasn't excited. I'm a huge fan of Borderlands, played both games to death and the new classes sounds interesting, i just hope to god Gearbox fix the TERRIBLE drop-rates.
as long as you let me do these quests http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photo...
Hmm, having trouble believing this.
I'm all done with last gen as I refuse to buy anymore last gen games. It's time to move on and let the PS3/360 retire in peace.
I rather have an Definitive version on Ps4/X1 of Bland 1/2. Whatever I'm happy with an new Bland...as long as it doesn't look worst than they already do on our last Gen machines. ^~^
PC=port to X1/PS4?? Please.
Looking forward to this one!!
Hopefully not 1) The Moon....how uninteresting 2) A Prequel...they never work out well 3) Different studio 4) Last gen consoles It's a pass from me if true
Prequels never work out well? I thought Halo Reach was an awesome prequel that allowed some formula changes. Also note worthy prequels. Crisis Core GOW:Ghost of Sparta Kingdom Hearts BBS Metroid Prime (never played it but I believe it is pretty well received) Deus Ex HR RE0(not one I haved played but I have heard it is good) Oh and I forgot one of the most loved games of all time MGS3. Even if you consider new prequels like Batman. I seriously doubt it is that bad, however I would not be surprised if it is like GoW:A and GeoW:J which are just nothing special compared to the original trilogy. As for the moon I agree, but there is nothing wrong with a different studio if done right (though I wont lie with gearbox I think there is a better chance of a miss then a hit). If it is bad it will sell bad and be looked at as the worst yet maybe even tarnishing the name a little,and you know what for fans that is good news. They would have to innovate and blow people away to get them in the mood for some more Borderlands. Last gen consoles is fine however I think they should at least port it to next gen machines with little effort (no major bugs,higher res/fps). They are probably playing it smart by trying to keep the wow factor down so the jump from next gen and last can be done by a main entry,due to this a port seems unlikely. That is why the beauty of PC gaming is there are no gens. I dont think this game is supposed to blow away fans, rather keep the big fans occupied with a new place to explore and new characters to play as. I expect very little differences between this and 2. If it fails it fails, and this is idea of milking the series will die.
Yeah some do well but your forgetting that not all of them do. Problems with most prequels is that developers are not careful enough and add stuff which wern't in the original games. For example Arkham Origins...they had equipment and gear that was better then what we had in Arkham City, how is that when it's supposed to be a prequel, hell even the Bat suit looked better. As for those prequels you've listed, Crisis Core wasn't as good to be honest. Kingdom Hearts BBS confused the story even more in the original series, alright game but like I said you can't do a prequel confusing the overall story more. RE0 wasn't really a full on prequel so it didn't really run into many issues Deus Ex HR was pretty good MGS3 is the only one I've seen do well and thats because it was needed to understand MGS4 and the overall Big Boss storyline. " I dont think this game is supposed to blow away fans, rather keep the big fans occupied with a new place to explore and new characters to play as. I expect very little differences between this and 2. If it fails it fails, and this is idea of milking the series will die." I understood if it was like Arkham Origins where it released when the PS4/Xbox One were coming out. But the fact that it might not come out until next year when new consoles will be fully established by then...well I'm sorry but that's not on. Most of us would of moved on by then so theres no point in doing it.
BBS did not confuse the story, rather it answered many and I mean many questions. It also raised new ones that are to be answered. If it confused you maybe you should pay attention because I left enlightened and with the sense that KH3 will answer everything I was left was wondering about. IMO it is a prequel that cannot be left unplayed. Hell the combat alone warrants the game because it is superb. As for Batman perhaps he had better gear because on Arkham asylum he had only a small base and in the city he depended on drop offs as well as getting some from enemies. It may not make it seem more acceptable but it gives some sort of excuse. I have not played the game though so maybe he gets abilities that make no sense. I do not know.
I'm going to have to agree with you Foxtrot especially with prequel and different studio. Prequels are such a bad idea and rarely work out and especially when the end of BL2 left the story wide open for new and different possibilities. Why take the story backwards? A different studio? Batman:AO, GoW:Judgement and other games have left me very cautious when other studios take over for established franchises. Don't get me wrong, BL2 is Shakespeare or War and Peace but these games have a certain charm and dark humor that I love. Hopefully this team can replicate this. Last gen, I have no problem with that since I only own a WiiU and more than likely they won't bring the game over to it. Which sucks.
This is a load of hot garbage!! First of all it would be on Next gen consoles!-
Still stuck on last gen eh? Sigh
I am surprised how many comments on here A) don't believe this B) don't like this First off, this is an absolute fact- it's ripe fruit and easy for a side team to capitalize on this story while the folks at Gearbox-main hash out a long term strategy for the next full installment. If you need proof, look at [any successful franchise] Rocksteady's Batman series. My favorite part about this is the fact that Gearbox has continually stated "Yeah… we're continually surprised that no one has stolen the Borderlands formula." They're doing everything right- and the fact that 2K (or Take Two?) wants to step in and support them by adding an additional team for dual production life cycles means they're clearly capitalizing on being the only kid on the block. Moreover, a release on 360 and PS3 makes complete sense. I can see this being expanded later, but would you want your foray into the next generation of game consoles to be a side story from your side team? Production wise and from a marketing standpoint, it doesn't make any sense; start off the next generation with a fresh tale, not a continuation. Good for them- I'm extremely excited and have no reservations about this title's success.
I agree with you and it is nice to see some understand what is probably the deciding factors of why and how this game is happening. As long as the quality is there and Gearbox delivers great main entries I wont complain. IMO everyone should just wait and see what happens and quit complaining about last gen. They are relevant consoles with over 150M owners and a dev looking for a quick "cash grab" would be smart to put it on them
If I shoot I'll play a Shooter. If I loot I'll play a looter. Never will I want watered down versions of the genres blended in to a turd stained blob Borderlands is.
Screw you Pitchford. What's up, need more designer jeans? Havent found anything 'new' that you and your hacks can rip off and make into a new IP? Just stick with your current over milked rip off, I totally understand as coming up with something original and furthermore GOOD, by yourselves is so very difficult if not impossible . I wonder how he's going to screw over gamers on this one? Loser.
I could never get enough Borderlands; one of my all-time favorite games.
Borderlands is poop. Statement.
I feel this is a good idea .who cares if its on last gen .its the game play that counts in the end hopefully the will bring back erdion weapons from the first game
If they just wanted to tide us over, they should've just released it as a DLC for a discount price.
