The original Borderlands Multiplayer components ran on the Gamespy service. But when that service was taken down it wasn’t possible to play Borderlands online. Gearbox Software already fixed this issue on PC, but now they have restored the multiplayer component for Playstation 3. So PS3 gamers who have missed out on the original Borderlands and want to play the game after the were introduced to the franchise with BL2 or BLTPS. Well they can now play with friends, so bring the mayhem.
If you start up your copy of Borderlands on your Playstation 3 you will be given a prompt to update. This patch will enable the new multiplayer component in the game.
- Within Borderlands multiplayer, you can sort your friends list in a few different ways:
- Who is playing Borderlands
- Who is online
- Alphabetical order
- The “And They’ll Tell Two Friends” Trophy will now grant correctly
- Improvements to voice chat
*Note that if your save was previously stored in the cloud instead of on your PlayStation 3 hard drive, some settings such as screen brightness, Y-Axis invert, etc. may need to be reset.
