Gearbox promises to deliver a "final" DX12 implementation in a future Borderlands 3 patch

Borderlands 3's launch has been far from perfect on PC, with the game's "Beta" DirectX 12 support being a massive bugbear for many gamers. DirectX 12 can be so troublesome in this game that using can stop the game from booting or, at a minimum increase, the game's boot times from dozen or so seconds to several minutes. 

We have created a short guide which will help PC gamers switch Borderlands 3 back to DirectX 11 is they are experiencing issues. However, we believe that DirectX 12 can work to Borderlands 3's benefit, having uncovered huge performance gains when using the API in certain situations. This game needs a DirectX 12 patch, and thankfully, 2K and Gearbox are prepared to deliver it. 

AMD has confirmed to us that "2K and Gearbox are planning to release a final DX12 implementation in a future patch". This means that Borderlands 3's DirectX 12 issues should be temporary. Sadly, we have no ETA for this patch, which means that in the meantime, PC gamers will need to be careful when using Borderlands 3's DirectX 12 mode.

Really not surprised... I'm yet to see a game with a good DX12 Implementation they either work badly or they work less badly but still badly or in this case may not work at all.

DMC5 was bugging me a while back with cutscenes stuttering and auido sync problems while the game itself ran stuck at 60fps cap, turns out I needed to edit a ini file to make it run in DX11.

I don't know what's going on with developers that think they can ditch the "DX12 May be worse" message when players try to enable it. Worse yet is not even giving us the option, requiring hacks to fix it...

I'm starting to think DX12 Will be DX10 all over again and we will end up moving to the next DX version before any game can really be developed to actually take advantage of the tech.Quote

This game is amazing.

5 hours in now and it's excellent. At first you don't notice how lovely it looks, then when the combat gets rocking you start noticing the new explosions, light shows and etc.

God it's good.Quote

Borderlands is a good series, I'll be buying this as soon as the prices come back down to reality, DX12 issues or not. As long as ONE mode works, I don't care.Quote

Finally an unbiased opinion; I have been hearing a lot a lot about bugs and stuff, how is your experience? Because of all the controversy I don't really trust anything out there so I value the people here.Quote

In another thread I asked about bugs and then read this one. So, six years and it's a mess upon release then?Quote
