What you need to know
- Community members recently started seeing a higher than 60 FPS frame rate in Borderlands 3 on Xbox Series X and PS5.
- 2K has now confirmed that both consoles support up to 120 FPS in performance mode.
- Borderlands 3 is one of the first PS5 optimized titles available with a free upgrade from the PS4 version.
For the PS5 launch, Borderlands 3 was one of the first titles to hit the new console with a fresh batch of upgrades. Free upgrades, no less, that pushed the game to 60 FPS at 4K, though still with a "resolution mode" and a "performance mode." A few days ago, players discovered that it seemed as those the game was actually playing at a much higher frame rate in the latter and it has now been confirmed.
"Borderlands 3 has been fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles' processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 display Borderlands 3 at up to 60 frames per second in 4K resolution during single-player and online co-op. It can also reach up to 120 frames per second if you select the "Performance Mode" setting while using a display that supports those frame rates."
Sure, it's a year old game at this point, but don't let that put you off jumping back in or even starting it for the first time. Previously I'd been playing Borderlands 3 on PC and started fresh, albeit on the Xbox Series X and the experience has been absolutely incredible. Not only is it now confirmed that the frame rates are actually higher than I was playing at on a Radeon RX 5700, but it loads quicker, too, and looks awesome.
Naturally if you want 4K you're not getting 120 FPS, but even at 60 FPS Borderlands 3 feels rock solid. I've played through the whole campaign now on the new console and haven't felt any noticeable issues with frame drops or anything janky happening. It's a really first rate experience and one I highly recommend.
