Borderlands 3 Cross-Play update goes live with PS4 and PS5 support


Gearbox Software has officially unveiled full crossplay in Borderlands 3 as part of a new update released on June 1st. Until the recent update, PC, Xbox and Stadia players could play together, but now PlayStation players can join in on the fun.

Below are all the patch notes that include cross-platform play for PlayStation players:

  • Added support for PlayStation Crossplay with other platforms on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5.
  • [PlayStation® Only] Added support for variable refresh rate for PlayStation®5.
  • [PlayStation® Only] Fixes an issue with Director’s Cut behind-the-scenes videos not playing properly.
  • Various crossplay fixes
  • Fixed an issue with the ECHO menu map not displaying correctly on ultra-wide screens.
  • Various performance and stability improvements

Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford said he’s been wanting a full cross-platform game for a while now. Pitchford previously said on Twitter that it’s “inevitable” to have cross-platform play in Borderlands 3 after Gearbox announced that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will have full cross-play at launch.


Back in 2019, when Borderlands 3 first launched, it was reported that Sony had blocked crossplay for unknown reasons. During Epic’s lawsuit against Apple, it was revealed that Sony was demanding royalties from the developers if they wanted to enable cross-play.
