Gearbox Software added crossplay to Borderland 3 last year, but Sony’s platforms didn’t support the feature initially. That will soon change as the company announced at PAX East that full crossplay support – including with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 – will arrive sometime in the spring, GameSpot reports. When the feature is available, PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Stadia players will all be able to play the game with each other.
Sony has been resistant to enabling crossplay in some games in the past, originally blocking support for it in titles like Fortnite and Rocket League before finally coming around. However, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlandsa border areas spin-off, launched in March with crossplay support on all platforms, including PlayStation. At the time of that announcement, Gearbox Entertainment president Randy Pitchford hinted that PlayStation crossplay support for Borderland 3 maybe close, that tweet the feature was “what I would consider inevitable.”
We asked Gearbox if it can provide a more specific timeline for when Borderlands 3s full crossplay support will be available. On Thursday, Gearbox also announced a “completely new” Stories from the borderlands Adventure” to be released in 2022.
