Following the launch of Borderlands 3 this weekend, players on all platforms have reported a number of technical problems ranging from separate screen breaks to stuttering in PlayStation 4 Pro performance mode. Players have flocked to the game subreddit, the official 2K forum, and social media to report on various problems and while Gearbox has not officially responded to everything, the developer has at least acknowledged the screen-apart problem.
Slowness occurs when one of the players using a separate screen tries to open a menu to change their skills or equipment. The 2K representative told IGN that the Gearbox was working on optimization and improvement but did not say when the patch was expected to come out. The full statement reads:
We are aware that in some cases during split-screen couch co-op play, players can experience lag while in heavy combat and one of the players goes into their ECHOdevice and tries to navigate the skill trees and menus. While we will continue to work to optimize the Borderlands 3 experience, we’d advise split-screen players to prep for combat ahead of big encounters, and not leave a teammate to fight solo mid firefight!
Speaking of separate screens, players have asked Gearbox to patch vertical screens because horizontal screens make it difficult for them to read text, and even make some people dizzy. There is no official word from the developer on this issue but ComicBook claims to have contacted 2K and was told by representatives that “there are no plans to add a vertical split screen at this time.”
