Borderlands 2 gets PSVR treatment

This upcoming game is the first VR entry in the Borderlands series and, according to Gearbox producer Brian Burleson, Gearbox "didn't just cram Borderlands into a headset and call it a day".

Borderlands 2 has been around for a while now, originally releasing for the PS3, PC and Xbox 360 in 2012, but the latest version will allow gamers to experience the world of Pandora in a completely new way. You can also use the new Teleport option to zip around Pandora at your desire.

In any case, you can expect to play Borderlands 2 on PSVR when it launches on December 14th.

Winning the Order of Merit is something I want to achieve by December and playing well here goes a long way to achieve that. TPC KL is one of those golf courses where I feel comfortable standing on the tee boxes and seeing what's in front of me.

Thankfully, this time, we get the Helio P22 chipset which is a decent performer as the same SoC powers the Xiaomi Redmi 6 . Still, HMD Global could offer more details with regards to the pricing and availability of the smartphones at the launch.

It turns out that Kim just wants Kourtney and Khloe to act cool in Japan rather than play on the stereotypes of the country. This is not like a tourist thing where it's Halloween , dress up like a f-king Japanese geisha.

Arguably the most notable addition is Borderlands 2 VR's take on bullet-time. The game will even have a few VR-exclusive features, including one - Bad [Expletive] Mega Fun Time (aka BAMF Time) - that will let you slow down time so that you can truly take in all the explosive chaos unfolding around you. The PlayStation Move motion controllers handle accelerating and steering while aiming the vehicle's guns is done using the headset. For instance, all vehicle sections in the game will now play out in first-person (the game previously changed to third-person when you got in a vehicle). Apparently this version of the game has been in the works since the Handsome Collection of Borderlands games made its way to PS4 back in 2016. All four original playable Vault Hunters form the base game return with modified skill-trees, but this will be a single-player experience. What other games would you like to experience in VR?
