Borderlands 2 has received a brand new update on the PC platform, via Steam, taking it to version 1.1.3 and adding a brand new option that lets players reset their challenge progress for a character, once they’ve completed enough of them, keeping their score intact and letting them earn new ranks.
Borderlands 2 came out back in September and, while its launch was a smooth one, it was plagued by quite a few nasty glitches, which either eliminated the challenge progress of players or, in the case of the more recent Graveyard.sav bug, deleted their entire save game.
Now, through a new update for the PC platform, developer Gearbox Software has added a brand new option to the game, allowing players to manually reset their challenge progress, provided they completed enough tasks.
This option keeps the challenge score intact, while allowing players to once again earn new ranks and unlock extra bonuses for their various characters.
Check out the full changelog for Borderlands 2 update 1.1.3 below, via Steam:
"- Added the ability to reset all challenge progress for a character once they've completed 85% of all non-DLC, non-area-specific challenge levels. This will keep the player's current challenge bonuses and rank, but reset all challenge progress to 0 and allow challenges to be re-completed for additional ranks and bonuses. Resetting is available on the "challenges" screen of the status menu and will display as a tooltip at the bottom of the screen if the player has met the criteria.
- Added a toggle for whether textures should fade or pop in when a higher-resolution version loads. High-end computers can disable this to avoid seeing lower-resolution textures streaming in.
- Fixed a bug where profile files set to "read only" were not being saved.
- Fixed a performance issue in Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty content with PhysX set to Medium or High."
The update is now live on Steam and will be automatically downloaded the next time you start it up. You can expect the feature to be added to the PS3 or Xbox 360 versions of Borderlands 2 through future patches.
