I don't see a topic for it, so figured I'd start one. I got it on PC and PS4 (for me and the husband to play, can't stand split screen.) I don't see how to get cross platform play yet, but realistically we'd probably play at different times anyway.

So username for either is looneypumpkin

I guess I can make a post here if anyone has platforms they are on and what their username is. How's everyone enjoying the game so far? I only am about an hour into it. Zane is great!

I'm playing Zane too. Just about to level 11. I'm loving it. Almost zero performance issues, and I'm playing on a vanilla PS4. The gunplay is so smooth and satisfying. The vehicle controls and "feel" are greatly improved. Already having more fun with the details of the guns than I had in the previous 750 or so hours I've put into the series.

Only complaints I have are -- the new ledge-climbing aspect of the platforming is clunky and inconsistent, the echo menu screens are a little laggy and sometimes need to be reloaded because of non-responsive button presses, and the weapon drops could be a little more varied (I've gotten an absurd amount of sniper rifles in just the first 10 levels of the game)...............but all the negatives are very minor.

Loving the experience so far. After playing Fallout 76 for the last month with a group of people and dealing with the plethora of major issues, this is a refreshing change.

Pretty fun so far. I'm playing on PS4 with Fl4k. Same name as my name on here if anyone wants to play. I'm usually on from around 10:30pm or so until around 12:30.

I'm not loving the vehicle controls, it seems like (at least on PS4) I'm either not steering straight or turning the camera wildly as it seems to be the same analog stick for that.

I'm gonna start up a new play on PC later today and let my husband take over using the PS4.

I got the game in the mail yesterday but can't play for 2 weeks because my gaming room is in the middle of a remodel. I'll be playing on the X1X so I'm curious to see what I should be expecting, performance level wise but I'm glad to see that even base consoles seem to have no issues. I know that BL2 had issues with heavy particle effects killing the CPU. Which character is closest to ZER0 or Mortdecai? Those were the characters I mainly played as in the last 2 BL games.

I would guess Zane is the closest to Zer0 or Mordecai. He's pretty fun and sassy.

Been playing on PC this morning and am up to level 6. The vehicle is easier to control on PC that's for sure.

You can change the control scheme for vehicles in the options.

Couple hours in, level 7 as FL4K. Debating rerolling Zane. I like having a pet and all but it just feels a bit boring so far. Watching a few quick videos... Zane looks more fun.

There's codes for golden keys here (all platforms.) I'll put in the main post too.

One or two did not work for me, but most did. Some are also for BL2.

Zane is awesome. I'm foregoing the grenade for the double action skill, clone and drone. Going through the skill trees for the builds on those two. Gonna have some massive damage going on.

Was debating the same. Started a new game with Zane but only had half an hour. I like FL4K because you can kinda be lazy, just not as fun.

Definitely going to play solo first time through (probably all I'll put into it, one playthrough). FL4K is the clear solo player but seems like Zane is fully capable and more diversity/fun.

I have been playing as Moze! Iron Bear is a beast. I just hit level 25, been really enjoying the gameplay so far. Probably won't play with anyone until after my first playthrough (I don't like to be rushed lol), but if anyone wants to add me on PS4 I am coruscate_ :)

Not that I've found yet. Would be so odd if they just removed that feature completely.

Yeah, your vault. In Sanctuary. But you have to get each character there first. Which you don't get to until Chapter 5.

So the basic bank is now also the secret stash too?

Strange choice. On the plus side, don't have to move over just four items at a time. Down side, the overall storage for all your characters in total just got way smaller.

You can upgrade it a fair bit in this one though. 5 slots per upgrade. With a total of 8 upgrades. So 40+ the starting 10. Which is more than previous games. I think it maxed out at 25 in 2 didn't it?

EDIT: to your point I see what you mean. You had 24 per character before, now you have 50 for all characters. But for me personally that isn't an issue. I don't store anything for the character I'm playing. I only store to swap for the others.
