I got the free upgrade to the PS5 version. Apparently, this version runs at 120Hz, I gotta try that on my new TV.
I started a new game with a Gunner character. I chose the performance mode and played for a little while in 120 FPS. It is amazingly smooth, possibly in a way that I would get so used to that I couldn't live without it. This version of the game runs incredibly well compared to the horrible launch PS4 version.
I played with the voices turned all the way down, making it a more chill and pleasant experience.
I have ordered a PS5 controller so Malu and I can play this version of the game.
We've been playing through the campaign in split-screen, me with FL4K the Beastmaster, and Malu with Amara the Siren. We traveled to Eden-6, which reminds me a lot of Jakob's Cove from 'The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned', DLC for the first Borderlands game. I think we are in chapter 12 now. We almost exclusively did story missions, except for a handful of side missions to keep our level slightly above the story mission recommended levels. Overall, the game is very easy, but is still very satisfying to play, due to an excellent variety in weapons and generally fun encounters.
