New Borderlands 2 Update Brings Back Windows Multiplayer, Adds New Weapons

borderlands2-7

Hardcore Vault Hunters may have noticed that the opportunity to venture forth with their PC-based comrades — a huge boon that arrived in an update almost two months ago — was no longer an option as of early this month, when the latest Borderlands 2 patch hit PCs, throwing the two operating systems out of sync again.

But the two platforms are now synced again, thanks to Aspyr’s lightning-fast release of a Mac-side patch. They’ve also brought us the $5, Steam-only Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Pack DLC, which raises the level cap and adds a “super-rare line of weapons.” Yeehaw.

More Big Borderlands 2 News: Now Quest Alongside Your PC Brothers

borderlands2-4

That’s right — along with the news today of the Hammerlock DLC release, Aspyr announced that Borderlands 2 has gone cross-platform, meaning you can now play the game online with those who own the PC version of the game.

This is a pretty big deal, since there simply aren’t nearly as many Mac players as there are on Windows machines, and forming parties with other players adds a huge chunk of fun to the hybrid RPG/first-person shooter.

Get Borderlands 2 on Steam Now for Half Price

borderlands2-2

Borderlands 2 is unequivocally the best first-person shooter available for the Mac. Right now it’s half off at the Steam store, making it $30, meaning you can snag a deal better even than the Mac App Store price of $45.

like its predecessor, Borderlands 2 combines fast-paced combat with role playing concepts like a skill tree, a witty, well-written storyline and a staggering degree of weapon selection. The Steam version also includes multiplayer, something the Mac App Store version doesn’t currently support. Better hurry if you want to catch the deal, though — Borderlands 2 is back at full price tomorrow morning.

Got 10 Bucks? Grab Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage Expansion For Borderlands 2

That dude is ripped. Low carb?

If you’ve been playing Borderlands 2 since it came out for the Mac a while back, you’ll know how very wacky and inappropriately violent it is. If you’ve already blasted your way through the main storyline and side quests, though, you might be feeling a little bereft at the end of your time on Pandora.

No worries, then, as Aspyr’s got your back, with their port of the DLC, “Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage,” available now on both Steam and the Mac Game Store.

If you haven’t been playing Borderlands 2, what’s up with that? Get on it, Vault Hunter!
