Borderlands 3 has been "fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles’ processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe," according to the press release, and will offer 4K resolution at 60 FPS and four-player local split-screen co-op. Vertical split-screen for two-player local co-op will also be available on day one for the Xbox Series X|S, and offered as a free update for Xbox One on November 10th.

Randy Pitchford, executive producer and Gearbox founder, says, “Borderlands is a ground-breaking, record-setting, critically acclaimed franchise where millions upon millions of gamers have experienced one-of-a-kind gameplay, mayhem, and fun across multiple generations of gaming technology... With Borderlands 3 continuing to grow and launching this November on next-generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles, there has never been a better time to jump in and join the fun.”

You can carry across all add-on content and save files to next-gen consoles in the same family of consoles, meaning your progress will carry from the Xbox One to the Xbox Series X|S. The next-gen upgrade for Borderlands 3 will be available for Xbox Series X|S on November 10th.
