Borderlands 3 does not run nice on console, however it appears to be particularly having points on Xbox One and Xbox One X. In addition to a wholesome slab of efficiency points, the madcap, post-apocalyptic looter-shooter appears to be overheating Xbox One and Xbox One X consoles, inflicting frequent crashes. In reality, some gamers are reporting the sport is downright unplayable as a result of this. At the second of publishing, it is unclear what the problem, however it’s been current since launch on September 13, and remains to be a problem as of right this moment.
Meanwhile, issues are a bit higher on PS4 and PS4 Pro. There does not appear to be any problems with overheating, and crashes look like minimal. Personally, I’ve had one or two crashes on my base PS4, which additionally seems like a jet engine whereas working the sport. And the PS4 Pro is not significantly better, with many noting the console is sort of loud when working the sport. As chances are you’ll know, Borderlands is not probably the most technically demanding recreation in the marketplace, so it is unclear what the problem could possibly be.
