Borderlands 3 is the latest title to adopt Apex Legends’ ping system

Borderlands 3 will have a ping system similar to Apex Legends, among other accessibility features

The popular ping method of co-op communication was popularised with Respawn's team-based Apex Legends, and is now making its way into Borderlands 3. You can also check your friends' inventories, skill trees and challenge progress from the Friends menu. If you fancy finding out more about Borderlands 3 you should read Miguel's preview here.

As much as everyone loved Borderlands 2, and fans would no doubt want just another game, Gearbox just can not help but improve their game.

Borderlands 3 will also see the series first Free-for-All Dueling mode, which will allow players to opt in to a 1v1v1v1 competitive multiplayer experience. You can makr loot chests, guns, call out points of interests in the game, and so on. If certain conditions are met Twitch viewers can spawn events in a streamer's game. Mostly notably, you can fully remap all of the controls, whether you're playing on console or PC. In addition, players will be able to toggle headbob, auto-mantling, and aim assist options, and will also find extensive closed captioning options (including adjustable text size and opacity) as well as deep considerations for color blindness.

Chief of all these is the new ping system; very much of the rage at the moment, the video below shows how you'll be able to ping objects, enemies and positions and, naturally loot - and more - to communicate without using a mic.

IBM Patents Smartwatch That Opens Up Like A Tablet
It was three years before the smartwatch market has gained momentum, and even four years before the release of Android Wear OS. The device will have at least one speaker and will work with an optional mouse and physical keyboard.

All this news came during a Borderlands 3 panel held at the event and was compiled by GamesRadar.

Borderlands 3 takes place on multiple planets and features numerous alien vaults.

The release date of Borderlands 3 is set for September 13, 2019, between just over two months, and promises to be a rather long-lived title: the duration of the Borderlands 3 campaign will, in fact, be around thirty hours, excluding the exploration, all subquests, and free play.
