Gearbox Reveals Borderlands 3’s Accessibility Options

Gearbox Software and 2K hosted panels during Guardian Con this past weekend. During Friday’s panel, they shared some important new details about the upcoming looter shooter…

Gearbox went on to talk about multiple aspects of the game (including social features, PvP options, livestreaming tools and more). One of the major announcements had to do with accessibility; Borderlands 3 will offer a full suite of options to ensure everyone can shoot and loot together.

Players will be able to adjust different gameplay features (toggling headbob, tweaking aim assist, etc.), fully remap all of the controls regardless of platform, and offer a bunch of different close captioning options. They also have considerations for color blindness – a feature Gearbox has utilized in the past.

Taking a page from Apex Legends, Gearbox unveiled a new pinging system. Players will be able ping different things – enemies, loot chests, guns and more – at which point the game will highlight those points of interest in-world and on the mini-map. Their characters will then call out/use a contextually relevant voice-over line.

Borderlands 3 looks to be the biggest, baddest Borderlands yet. It’s only natural that Gearbox would want to make it as accessible as possible.

To hear more about the various new features coming to Borderlands, head over to Twitch and view the panel (it starts at 6:31:41). Just be sure to keep it locked here for more game related news.

Borderlands 3 will be available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13th.
