Borderlands 3 Co-op and Multiplayer | Can I play split-screen?

Plenty of people are already wondering if there are Borderlands 3 co-op and multiplayer options in Gearbox’s upcoming title. Whether it’s online, local co-op, or playing in split-screen mode, gamers will want to know if these features are available. Find out all there is to know with our Borderlands 3 co-op and multiplayer guide.

Yes, there are co-op and multiplayer modes in Borderlands 3. It would be mad for Gearbox and 2K Games not to include any form of multiplayer in the game, considering that Borderlands 3 players travel across worlds as a four-strong raiding team.

The game will support co-op for up to four players then, given the size of these raiding parties. If there’s only two of you playing, you won’t be matched up with two other players online either. There’s no need to worry about being paired up with people you don’t want to game with.

Throw your hands in the air and celebrate, fellow gamers. There is a split-screen feature as part of the Borderlands 3 co-op and multiplayer option. No more will you have to play with your friends over the internet. Instead, you can invite them around to your place, squash together on the couch, and game in each other’s company.

The split-screen co-op feature was shown off briefly in the Borderlands 3 announcement trailer, which was posted to Gearbox’s official Youtube channel on Wednesday, April 3. The footage, which is seen around the 0:47 mark, shows two players gaming on the same screen. This is shown off around five seconds further into the video, too.

Unfortunately for PC players, this split-screen feature is exclusive to console editions of Borderlands 3. Patrick Fenn, producer at Gearbox, responded to one fan’s query about this late in Match. He confirmed that PS4 and Xbox One owners could play split-screen, but the PC port wouldn’t have this option available. Pour one out for our PC brethren, everyone.
