Borderlands 2 Getting Exclusive VR Version on PlayStation VR

And sorry, no co-op in this version.

PlayStation VR is two years old this week, and to celebrate, PlayStation announced a big new project coming to the virtual reality platform later this year. And it's a familiar game too: Borderlands 2 will be getting a full-scale VR port by the end of the year.

The new VR version of Borderlands 2 comes with a special new ability: Slow-Mo, which lets you stop time so that you can "set up your next attack." Borderlands 2 VR will also be a single-player experience, and former co-op abilities have been tweaked to accommodate the change. Last year, Bethesda's Skyrim also made its way to VR in all its open-world glory, making Borderlands 2 the latest big-minded game to join virtual reality.

There's no word yet on if the VR port will hit HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, so as of now it seems like a PlayStation VR exclusive. There's still no word on if Borderlands 3 is a thing, though it seems inevitable. Borderlands 2 VR hits PlayStation VR on December 14, and you can pre-order it on PSN starting today for $49.99.
