By the time Borderlands 2 VR had made it’s way onto the Playstation Store late last year, I was already a couple of trays of mince pies into my Christmas holidays. That meant my last proper piece of VR coverage on the site (aside from my PSVR Games Of The Year list) was a look at the unbelievably dismal, Gungrave VR.
If only Borderlands 2 VR had released a little earlier in December. Then I could have finished 2018 on a high note rather than a deflated sigh. You see, Borderlands 2 VR is one of the few titles on the Sony’s VR platform to offer a full, 25+ hour campaign and as such it’s worth shining a spotlight on it for the first Ian’s VR Corner of 2019.
Borderlands 2 VR places you inside the entire Borderlands 2 experience, minus its 10 DLC chapters and signature cooperative multiplayer. The lack of multiplayer is particularly disappointing considering how much fun tooling around Pandora with your mates was in the original release, but the extra immersion that VR brings balances things out nicely so you won’t miss it too much.
