Borderlands 3 will welcome back PlayStation cross players this “spring”

Borderlands 3 will once again offer cross-play support to PlayStation players “later this spring”.

It comes almost a year after Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford stated that PlayStation support across platforms would be removed from an upcoming Borderlands 3 patch without explaining why. The decision was then reversed last month, again without explanation.

The confirmation came via the official Borderlands Twitter page, which finally gave us a window – if not yet an exact date – on when PlayStation players will be able to connect with their friends on other platforms: Spring 2022.

Your definition of “spring” will of course vary depending on which side of the equator you live on, but given Gearbox is in the US, that should theoretically mean that the PS4 and PS5 crossplay will go live in the next few weeks.

Cross-play will then be possible for players on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

Have you played Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands yet? Digital Foundry thought it was a “surprising twist on the Borderlands concept”, while Chris thought it was “a bit like working through a hangover”.

“This is a game-interface game that can be read as a brain fog that overshadows half-tool mechanics and miniature thumbnails and systems that are occasionally hinted at but rarely explained,” Chris wrote. “It’s also loud, in every sense, all the roaring explosions, shouting voiceovers and wide splashes of the high contrast, primary color scheme, it paints grimly over the world’s otherwise dull, muddy brown and green colors. A lot of noise. A lot of energy. There should be a lot of ibuprofen and coffee to find out. ”
