As modders get caught into the center of Borderlands Three we’re seeing increasingly cheeky patches round – from the sensible intro-skipper to save lots of recordsdata that allow you to bounce instantly to stage 50 characters – however nothing’s fairly caught my eye like this newly launched one (thanks, PC Gamer), which strips out Gearbox’s iconic cell-shading and brilliant palette for a Limbo lookalike as a substitute.
To be honest, a lot of Borderlands 3’s allure comes from its beautiful distinctive artwork type, so I’m not solely certain why I love the look of this mod simply as a lot, however with out the visible noise, Borderlands 3’s meaty fight has by no means appeared higher. Right here, test it out for your self:
“This is just a reshade preset using the depth buffer,” is all of the mod creator says about how they captured Limbo’s iconic look, stripping away not simply the color but in addition the HUD and participant UI.
In Eurogamer’s Borderlands 3’s assessment, I stated: “you will probably have seen – and even skilled for your self by now – that Borderlands Three is the whole lot Vault Hunters beloved about its predecessors. It is exhausting to think about how, technical points apart, current followers couldn’t discover extra to like about this newest iteration, however that is also stated for followers who did not like its predecessors.
“However whether or not you imagine it is giving the followers what they need or a stunning lack of ambition – evolution or revolution, in different phrases – Borderlands could also be polarising, however it’s again nonetheless: larger, higher, and extra unapologetic than ever.”
