Borderlands 3 Reveals Ping System and Accessibility Features


This new mechanic will help making playing Borderlands 3 with a friend even more streamlined.

Gearbox is also building upon its ECHOcast Twitch extension that allows viewers to look through a streamer's loadout/skilltrees and earn in-game loot.

Players will also be able to toggle headbob and auto-mantling, adjust aim assist, and Borderlands 3 will feature extensive closed captioning and color blindness options, which will include adjustable text size and opacity.

At a panel at Guardian Con last week (via PC Gamer), Gearbox revealed it has added a range of new features to Borderlands 3 to make multiplayer more accessible than its predecessors.

Borderlands 3 is set to be one of the big releases this Fall.

"Once you are in a group, if you and your companions want to start a dispute or are simply curious about how it feels to receive weapons and skills from the other components, the new duel feature allows you to opt for multiplayer battles 1 against 1 against 1 against 1", the developers explained. You can makr loot chests, guns, call out points of interests in the game, and so on.

As much as everyone loved Borderlands 2, and fans would no doubt want just another game, Gearbox just can not help but improve their game. Moxxi's Mixer Events are effectively a way for you to buy streamers in-game cocktails using Twitch Bits, with the fun twist that you get to vote on the cocktail ingredients and then watch as the streamer's Vault Hunter drinks it down and receives either a buff or a debuff. Players on any platform will fully be able to remap controls, which will also allow the Xbox Adaptive Controller to be used to its full potential.

Borderlands 3's ping system was demonstrated in a brief video recently on July 2, 2019, via the Borderlands YouTube channel.
