Borderlands 2 coming to PSVR
Calling all Borderlands fans, write 14 December in your calendars because that’s the day that Borderlands 2 is coming to PSVR.
The biggest new feature of Borderlands 2 VR is 2K’s take on bullet-time, called “BAMF Time” (or “BadAss Mega Fun Time” if you’re not into the whole brevity thing). 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.
The original four playable Vault Hunters from Borderlands 2 are back, along with their special abilities and BAMF-modified skill trees. BAMF Time upgrades have been added to previous abilities, like Zer0’s “Death Mark,” which marks targets for additional damage but now also restores two seconds of BAMF Time per marked kill. And since Borderlands 2 VR is a single-player experience, 2K have updated previous skills that relied on a co-op partner, 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.
New twist, you’ll find in Borderlands 2 VR is the fact that for the first time ever, you’ll be driving vehicles and racking up the roadkill count from a first-person perspective. While accelerating and steering with the joystick, Players will be able to aim the vehicle’s guns with their headset. Experience first-hand the sublime exhilaration of driving one way and looking another! Lose yourself in the roar of the engine, the Pandoran landscape, the wind and viscera in your hair as you mow down your enemies—all from the comfort of your own home.
Borderlands 2 VR launches on December 14.
