Borderlands 2 VR hits PlayStation VR in December

Loot here.

2K has announced Borderlands 2 VR, due out on PlayStation VR on 14th December 2018.

Borderlands 2 VR, which is single-player only, is developed by Gearbox. In it you play a Vault Hunter seeking loot and to rid Pandora of Handsome Jack.

Unique to this VR version of the shooter, you can slow down time to set up your next attack. For movement you can go with the pointed teleportation you see in a lot of VR games, or use the traditional movement with joysticks.

The four playable classes from the main game are in there - Siren, Commando, Gunzerker and Assassin - but each has skills that make the most of the slow time ability.

Also new is driving around the world in first-person (it's third-person in the main game). You accelerate and steer with the joystick and aim weapons with the headset. You use the menus by pointing, clicking, dragging and dropping.

There's no mention of a version of Borderlands 2 VR for Oculus Rift or HTC Vive in 2K's press release.
