Borderlands 3 vs Borderlands 2 video graphics comparison

Borderlands 3 releases in a few days and Candyland has shared a comparison video between the second and the third part of the series. This video compares the PC versions of these two games on Max/Ultra settings.

Borderlands 2 used Unreal Engine 3, whereas Borderlands 3 uses Unreal Engine 4. As such, this video will give you an idea of the visual improvements that Epic’s new engine brings to the table. The video will also give you an idea of Borderlands 3’s new textures and some of its artistic changes.

Borderlands 3 will support DirectX 12 so it will be interesting to see how it performs on the PC platform. Initial PC performance reactions from a couple of publications are not that great, however, we’ll reserve judgement until the final version releases. In case you’re wondering, 2K Games has not provided us yet with a review code.

In Borderlands 3, players will blast their way through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters, each with skill trees, abilities, and customization. The game will feature solo and co-op modes so that players can take on insane enemies, collect loads of loot and save their home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.

Borderlands 3 releases on September 13th. It will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech and will be exclusive for six months on the Epic Games Store.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
