Borderlands 3 – New features revealed!

Gearbox Software en 2K Games revealed some more upcoming features for Borderlands 3 during a panel at Guardian Con Orlando last weekend. These features include Social features, livestreaming tools and Accessibility options.

Dueling will be better than ever: Free-for-All Dueling allows for opt-in 1v1v1v1 competitive multiplayer. Discord integration, activity group-based matchmaking, and asynchronous matchmaking allows you to play while the system searches for players to pair you with.

The ECHOcast Twitch extension will provide additional functionality: In addition to allowing viewers to look through a streamer’s loadout/skilltrees and giving them a chance to score real in-game loot while watching on Twitch, the extension also allows viewers to spawn events in a streamer’s game once certain conditions are met. Options include Moxxi Mixer events, Badass Viewer events, and more.

In an effort to ensure all players are able to enjoy Borderlands 3, Gearbox has developed a full suite of accessibility options. You can fully remap all of the controls, whether you’re playing on console or PC, making Borderlands 3 fully compatible with the Xbox Adaptive Controller. In addition, players will be able to toggle headbob, auto-mantling, and aim assist options, and will also find extensive closed captioning options (including text size and opacity) as well as deep considerations for color blindness.

A new pinging system that allows you to quickly and effectively communicate with your co-op partners without speaking. If you ping enemies, loot chests, guns, or other key points of interest in the game world, those interest points are highlighted in-world and on the mini-map for all players to see, and your character fires off a contextually relevant VO line.
