Looks quite cool - to me maybe even more exciting the No Man's Sky VR, although these are very different games:

About

Developed by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 VR brings the iconic world of Pandora to life like never before. Fans will virtually become a treasure-seeking Vault Hunter, grab 87 bazillion guns, and face off against the galaxy’s most charming psychopathic dictator, Handsome Jack, to free Pandora from the corrupt Hyperion Corporation.


Key Features

  • Virtually Step onto Pandora: Step into the boots of a treasure-seeking Vault Hunter armed with 87 bazillion possible guns on a quest to line your pockets with loot and free Pandora from Handsome Jack’s clutches. Blast bandits with real-world aiming, punch bullymongs in the mouth, find the perfect gun inside a life-sized treasure chest and inspect it from every angle. Catch-aRide and race across Pandora in first-person view and experience the thrill of a psycho running toward you with grenade in-hand yelling, “Boom time!”
  • Virtually Slow Time: Borderlands 2 VR includes new features unique to the VR experience to empower Vault Hunters in their fight against Handsome Jack. With Bad Ass Mega Fun Time (aka BAMF Time), players can use this new slow-mo ability to literally slow the speed of the game temporarily to set up their next attack. In addition, with the option to Teleport, players can glide across Pandora as gracefully as Claptrap (if he had grace).
  • Become a Virtual Vault Hunter: Take on the role of one of four playable classes – Siren, Commando, Gunzerker and Assassin – each with unique combat styles and updated skills that leverage the new VR functionality, including the new BAMF Time ability. Whether crushing enemies with Maya’s Siren powers, calling in Sabre Turret reinforcements as Axton, feeling the heft of dual-wielded machine guns as Salvador, or the satisfying swing of Zer0’s sword in an enemy’s back, Borderlands 2 VR immerses players like never before.
  • Experience Virtual Improvements: For the first time ever, players can experience the sublime exhilaration of driving around the Borderlands in first-person perspective – accelerating and steering with the joystick and aiming the vehicle’s weapons with their headset. With the use of the motion controllers and headset, players can interact with the menu systems in a new and intuitive way for the platform, easily navigating through the menus by pointing, clicking, dragging and dropping. Players will also have the choice of preferred movement styles. Whether that’s the VR popular pointed-teleportation, or the classic direct movement style with joysticks – your experience should feel good for VR and true to form of classic Borderlands.
  • Get Virtually Rich: Borderlands 2 VR brings shoot-and-loot mechanics to VR with bazillions of procedurally-generated guns and gear, each with their own capabilities and modifiers. Procedurally-generated shields, grenades, relics, class mods and more round out your Vault Hunter’s arsenal for maximum power and mayhem.

    Nice to get confirmation that this is really coming to PC. I love shooting stuff so I'm pretty excited about this.

    Hmmm am torn. BL is great and I would love it in VR... But BLs best feature for me is its coop MP with mates and this is stripped out. Am not sure how interesting it will be solo, esp for those of us who have already finished the flat screen version.

    Great game, glad it's out but not one for me I think
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    I never got to finish the pancake version - and I don't play coop, so I really hope the singleplayer story is great. And having launched the VR version first on the PS4, I hope performance will be great too.

    in which case the game probably IS for you. BL2 is a great game (better with friends imo).... but if you dont enjoy coop then that wont bother you and as you have not done BL2 much yet then i think you are in for a treat :)

    I've spent my BL2 appetite with the pancake version. I got the game with the 2nd hand PSVR I bought, and haven't even bothered checking it out. 
    I do hope, hovewer, that the lessons learnt by the devs with this PCVR port will mean BL3 PCVR sooner than later.

    Good stuff, i would have bought this on the PSVR but those PS motion controllers are just garbage, yes i could play it with the joypad but i wanted to try the BL guns in VR with my own virtual hands......so PC version it is then.

    Yeah i was not a fan of that at all, it had some major drift issues right out of the box that got really annoying real quick, so it went back, PC version at least i know will work. ;)

    Yeah, it's really picky about room lighting. But once that's taken care of it's pretty good. Farpoint was a really good experience with it...  but it would've been great on the Rift + gun stock.
