Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, the remastering of the Gearbox looter shooter for PS4, Xbox One and PC, is having problems online.
Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, the remastering with textures to 4K for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC of the Gearbox looter-shooter, went on sale last April 3. Since then, some PS4 players (with occasional reports on the other systems) have found it impossible to play online with their friends or with strangers to the title.
On the Borderlands subreddit, different users complain that they can not join online games when they receive an invitation from a friend; and vice versa, you can not invite others to join. Other players can not access multiplayer with random people in a title whose core is cooperative play with three other users.
Some users are suggesting that when opening router ports, the problem is solved, but not all players know how to do this, and others are worried about having security problems when doing so; they demand that Gearbox fix this through an update.
A manager of the Borderlands community says in the official forums that “Gearbox and 2K are aware of the problems that players are having and are actively working on a solution.” That message was published three days ago, and since then, there have been no further updates to the problem by any of the companies.
In addition to the problem with matchmaking, other users are not receiving the 75 free keys for promised gold chests for those who connect their Gearbox Shift account to the game and have tried another title of the franchise (via Game Informer ).
In addition to Borderlands GOTY for PS4 and Xbox One, those who had in Steam Borderlands GOTY will receive a free update with textures to 4K.
Also, Borderlands: A very beautiful collection, the compilation for PS4 and Xbox One of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, have also received a free patch with 4K textures.
These free updates are, in part, to promote the next instalment of the series, Borderlands 3, which will go on sale on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 13, 2019.
