Gearbox Announces New Season Pass & DLC For Borderlands 3
Borderlands 3 developer Gearbox has announced the game’s Season Pass 2 along with new downloadable content following the culmination of its first season pass last month.
The season ended with a campaign that had Vault Hunters go into the mind of Krieg, a character from the second installment. And, with that all behind us, the devs have disclosed details as it pertains to their upcoming term.
Fans who are keen on getting either one of the inbound next-gen consoles will be glad to know the game will be coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X in November. The first half of the pass and DLC will also be available from November 10, with two new add-ons – namely the Designer’s Cut and Director’s Cut – set to introduce additional skill trees for Borderlands 3’s four main characters, following not-so-subtle hints, as well as new modes. The Designer’s Cut comes first, with the Director’s Cut to launch next spring.
The announcement reads:
“This new season will include the Designer’s Cut and Director’s Cut DLCs, which each offer new modes and ways to play. A copy of Borderlands 3 is required to play the content in Season Pass 2, which will be available for purchase on November 10 starting with the Designer’s Cut. The second half of Season Pass 2, Director’s Cut, is planned to release in Spring 2021; we’ll have more details to share closer to launch.”
There’s nothing on what the modes will offer just yet, nor is there anything on new Vault Hunters possibly becoming a part of the roster, which must have been expected given that some of Borderlands’ best characters typically join post-launch.
Kotaku reported having contacted publishers 2K with questions over whether the expansions will offer narrative-driven campaigns. They’ve since learned the Designer’s Cut will include a standalone mode called “Arm’s Race,” however, Gearbox did not divulge further details.
The devs have also promised a number of “big reveals” set for October dates which you could see below:
– October 20, 9:00 AM PT – Amara/FL4K new Skill Tree reveals with livestreams and a special episode of Ultimate Vault Hunters
– October 22, 9:00 AM PT – Moze/Zane new Skill Tree reveals with livestreams and a special episode of Ultimate Vault Hunters
– October 29, 9:00 AM PT – The Borderlands Show premieres, featuring the new Arms Race mode and much more
– October 30, 9:00 AM PT – The Bordercast debuts the first live, hands-on Arms Race gameplay
The Designer’s Cut’s launch coincides with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X launch on November 10. Other than revealing it comes out next spring, Gearbox had nothing else to say about the second cut. There’s nothing out on pricing either but the first season pass set gamers back $50.
