Borderlands 3 will include a ping system among improved accessibility features

Other accessibility features in Borderlands 3 include Xbox Adaptive Controller support, re-mappable controls, and subtitles and closed captioning options.

If you absolutely must, Borderlands can be played all on your lonesome, but the series has always encouraged vault hunters to team up with buds to shoot skags and make some cash.

Finally, Gearbox revealed a variety of streaming features including special in-game events that will trigger if certain conditions are met. Viewers can also look at the streamer's loadout and skills on the fly, which should alleviate having to constantly answer that question during sessions.

These quality-of-life changes are big improvements which should hopefully encourage a larger player-base to jump into Borderlands 3 when it releases in September.
