One of the things Borderlands is famous for is all the fight you have to embark on in order to grab the best loot in co-op.
That’s about to change, fortunately enough, in Borderlands 3, as shared by Gearbox Software over social networks and a PlayStation Blog post.
Lead boss designer Matt Cox said on Twitter that “no more fighting for loot in Borderlands 3” will happen.
“We can now choose to have our own personal loot stream if we want. One of my favorite things we announced today.”
You “can still play the classic way, too,” if you feel the new system doesn’t work as you’d have expected.
On top of that, it’s good to note the full explanation by art director Scott Kester.
“Regardless of your respective levels or mission progress, you and your friends can play together online or on the couch, and not only will each of you deal a meaningful amount of damage, but you’ll also receive your own discrete loot stream,” Kester said.
“No more loot ninjas! Of course, if you prefer to play with classic Borderlands 2 co-op rules—where loot is shared—you can choose to do so.”
Borderlands 3 is releasing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 13, 2019. The title is an Epic Games Store exclusive for six months on PC.
