You Won’t Have To Fight For Loot In Borderlands 3 Co-Op

Borderlands 3 might have only recently been announced, but it’s already jumped to being one of the most-talked about games of 2019 (so far).

Although we don’t know a huge amount about the game as of yet, we have been treated to a few details thanks to the PlayStation Blog [via IGN].

In a blog post, Scott Kester, Art Director at Gearbox Software gives us a lot of insight into what we can expect from the upcoming title, and it sounds like Gearbox has thought of everything – especially when it comes to co-op play.

Kester writes: “One of the things that I’m most excited about in Borderlands 3 are the improvements that we’ve made to co-op.

“Regardless of your respective levels or mission progress, you and your friends can play together online or on the couch, and not only will each of you deal a meaningful amount of damage, you’ll also receive your own discrete loot stream. No more loot ninjas! Of course, if you prefer to play with classic Borderlands 2 co-op rules—where loot is shared—you can choose to do so.”

You hear that? No more loot ninjas! Hooray!

Unfortunately, Kester doesn’t go into too much detail about the mechanic, it’ll be interesting to see how it’ll affect the gameplay, especially when it comes to things like chests.

Although the game isn’t set to release for a few months, Kester promises an “extended look at Borderlands 3 during [the] worldwide gameplay reveal event on May 1.”

And if you can’t wait that long there’s plenty of other Borderlands content to keep you occupied over the next few months, as both the Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection are available on PS4, now playable in 4K on PS4 Pro.
