Gearbox confirm they’re “interested” in introducing competitive multiplayer to Borderlands 2 – but stress that, as with the first game, co-operative play is the focus.
The focus of Borderlands was, of course, it’s co-op. Specifically, its split-screen co-op, which won the game many fans. And there’s no chance that’s going to go anywhere soon.
However, Gearbox have now said that they’re “interested” in introducing a competitive multiplayer component to Borderlands 2. It’s not confirmed yet, and co-op is still the focus, but hey – wouldn’t that be interesting?
“As far as talking about anything on the competitive side, it’s something we’re interested in, but we’re sticking true to the core of what Borderlands is and we’ll see where things go from there,” said concept designer Scott Kester in an interview with culture website Complex.
So Borderlands 2 will definitely have an improved co-op component. A big change is a combination of split-screen and online co-op – where two players can sit in a living room and play with two other players online.
