Starting a new character in Borderlands 3 is something you can do on the same profile, if you want to start the game over with a different character. Not only that, but the game lets you freely swap between characters on the same profile from the main menu. The question some have posed, though is how to make a new character in Borderlands 3. Well, it’s pretty simple, and we’ll explain it all in our Borderlands 3 How to Start a New Character guide.
How to Start New Character on Same Profile in Borderlands 3?
To start a new character on the same profile in Borderlands, in the main menu, select New Game instead of Continue. From there, you’ll have to go through the same rigmarole you did when beginning for the first time. Select the difficulty, then choose between Coopetition and Cooperation. I regret to inform you that, yes, you’ll have to sit through all the introductory cutscenes yet again. Use the time to make a sandwich or reconnect with a loved one or something. Then, select the character you want this time around, and be on your way.
How to Switch Characters in Borderlands 3?
If you want to switch between characters on the same profile in Borderlands 3, go to the main menu, the one that pops up when you boot up the game. In the main menu, if you select Continue, you’ll resume with the last character you played as. So, instead, select Load Character. Choose the character whose story you want to continue. The game will automatically take you back to the main menu. All you gotta do now is hit Continue. You can do this freely from the main menu whenever you want.
