If you’ve played past Borderlands games or even any loot-centric co-op games, chances are you’ve encountered a free for all when it comes to item drops and loots. Thankfully, this won’t be the case with Borderlands 3!
As part of a feature on the game on the PlayStation Blog, Borderlands 3 Art Director Scott Kester revealed that the Borderlands 3 loot stream will be discrete to each user! Not only that, but players will be able to co-op online or via couch, regardless of their character level!
With that in mind, 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.
This is amazing news, no? Now we don’t have to rush over to beat others to the punch when picking up loot! Players can now also play co-op even with beginners if they want to “power level” someone up!
Don’t forget, the full hands-on impressions first look for Borderlands 3 will take place on May 1! In the meantime, go watch the release date announce trailer here to get your inner hype train started.
