The big question; ‘can borderlands 3 be played offline?‘ got answered during the Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal event. Gearbox Software President, Randy Pitchford, confirmed that Borderlands 3 will have an offline mode. You don’t have to be “always” online in order to play this game. Gearbox Software is sticking with its traditional core experience you know from the previous game.  You can play the Borderlands 3 solo or co-op (online and offline split-screen).

On Twitter Gearbox Software’s President, Randy Pitchford, responds to a fan and mentions in a Borderlands-related tweet that he also wants to take care of the offline player base.

I like the idea of raids and loot – we kind of pioneered that in FPS. I also like on-line. But we want to be there for off-line gamers, too.

In the current landscape of the video game industry, we see more and more games going to an always-online environment. While I personally haven’t experienced a lot of problems with games that require an internet connection,  there have been multiple occasions that we gamers couldn’t play our favorite games because of online issues.

Personally, I would have thought that the next Borderlands game would require to have an online connection. The gameplay of the main series does translate well to more MMO-like experiences, and with Battleborn we did see that loot was stored on the GBX server instead of on your save file you store locally.

However, Borderlands has always been that couch co-op game that you can pick up and play with friends. Having to set up multiple accounts could disrupt that. Well maybe even with this news the Nintendo Switch version of Borderlands 3 would still be a possibility as Nintendo’s online infrastructure hasn’t been fully realized yet. But until we get an official announcement of the game we still need to take this with a grain of salt for now.
