Borderlands 2 is an amazing first-person shooter video game that was developed by Gearbox Software, back in 2012. Since then this game has gained a lot of popularity and it has been a source of entertainment for different gamers across the globe.
The best thing is that you can play this game online with up to four players. But users are excited to know is Borderlands 2 cross-platform? If you are looking for an answer then you have come to the right place.
The answer is, that Borderlands 2 doesn’t provide cross-platform support. However, it does support the limited cross-play capability for some gaming consoles.
Now, let’s find out if your gaming console is on the cross-platform list or not.
PC and Xbox
First of all, let’s find out if this game supports crossplay between Xbox and PC or not.
Well, unfortunately, it turns out that Borderlands 2 is not cross-platform for PC and Xbox users.
This means you won’t be able to play this game with your friend as long as you own a PC and the other party has an Xbox. This game is still popular, but given its age, there were no further updates made on cross-playing it.
Epic Games and Steam
Fortunately, Epic Games and Steam players can benefit from Borderlands 2 support limited cross-play.
This means you can easily play with your friend as long as you two fulfill the above-mentioned requirements. In order to utilize this feature, you will require a SHiFT account. A SHiFT account provides additional add-ons to enhance the game and provide it with more functionality.
PC and PS4
When it comes to PS4 and PC, the answer is no. Unluckily, Borderlands 2 does not provide limited cross-play capability among PC and PS4 players.
Hence if you own a PC and you want to play this game with your friend who has a PS4, then it is impossible for you.
The reason why is because PlayStation does not offers its users any cross-platform features. However, in 2019, Sony made an official statement to add the cross-platform feature in the near future. Let’s see when it happens.
Unfortunately, Borderlands 2 does not offer cross-platform compatibility between Nintendo Switch users.
But the good thing is that you can still play Borderlands 2 on a Nintendo Switch with your friends. Yeah, that seems impossible as the developers don’t offer crossplay. But it is possible via the split-screen feature of the Nintendo Switch.
So with the Split Screen, you can enjoy playing this game with your friends.
PS4 and Xbox
Unfortunately, this game does not support cross-play between Xbox and PS4 consoles. Even though Borderlands 2 is supported by both of these platforms but there is no cross-play feature.
So if you have a PS4 and your friend owns an Xbox, unlucky you both can’t play Borderlands 2 with each other.
The reason why is because PlayStation and Xbox consoles are competitors and both consoles utilize different servers to host a game. Due to different servers, players cannot play together.
But if you want to play with friends then why don’t you look for some? You can use the local multiplayer feature in this game to find local players to play with you. You can also play Borderlands 2 in Split-screen mode and finish the multiplayer campaign with your friends.
