The Stadia version of Borderlands 3 has a big problem compared to the other versions, which Gearbox should solve within the first months of next year.
Borderlands 3 has just been launched on Stadia, Google’s cloud gaming platform, but with one problem: it’s not updated like the Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions. Some of the patches published in recent months are basically missing.
More precisely, the Stadia version of Borderlands 3 is stopped at the update on 24 October 2019 and lacks some features, such as the increase in space for the loot and the Mayhem 4 difficulty level. In a post on his official blog, Gearbox said it wanted to achieve parity within the first few months of 2020, even if it’s not clear when. Meanwhile, also the first DLC of the game, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, on Stadia it has been postponed until a later date since it requires a more updated version than is available. So no launch on December 19, 2019.
Finally, some players on Reddit have discovered that the game does not run at 60fps as promised if set to maximum quality, but succeeds if set to ‘Balanced’ quality. In short, Borderlands 3 is another title that has some problems with Stadia too. We hope they will be resolved as soon as possible.
