The ESRB web site doesn’t present this score particularly on the time of this writing; it solely lists the score for the earlier PlayStation four model. Twitter consumer Wario64 has typically been a dependable supply for leaks nonetheless, and contemplating the sport’s launch on PC VR was all however confirmed by the studio itself even earlier than launch on PSVR, the supposed score is decidedly credible, if not an entire banality to anybody not following the house.

Admittedly, we weren’t too impressed with Borderlands 2 VR on PSVR, giving it a tepid [5.9/10] on our linear grading scale. Highway to VR’s Ben Lang reviewed the sport on PSVR when it launched in December 2018, saying that whereas it technically works in VR, it nonetheless hasn’t managed to flee the sensation of being an outright port. On prime of that, there’s no co-op mode, no DLC, no VR-specific interactions, middling graphics, and a gamepad-first design.

Though it’s since gotten a number of high quality of life updates, bringing with it assist for PS Goal and improved capturing for all controller varieties, it’ll be fascinating to see if Gearbox takes the chance to iron out extra of the opposite gripe-worthy points we noticed on PSVR for the PC VR launch.
