Borderlands 3 downloadable content “Director’s Cut” will be launched on March 18, announced publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software.
Get the latest details below.
“Director’s Cut” will be launched on March 18 and will be available separately or as part of Season Pass 2. The add-on has an enticing selection of content, but the headline is the brand new raid boss: Hemovorous the Invincible, a completely titanic Varkid wondering behind a door on Pandora that has been locked since Borderlands 3 launched. Only the toughest big game hunters have the chance to kick the chitinous ass in the hunt for top law. Better evaluate your tactics, refine your construction and bring some friends. Oh, and be ready to be pooped in Varkid̵7;s guts – it’s getting messy!
“Director’s Cut” also includes a series of murder mystery missions, with brand new locations and a new mechanic for the scene. Ava is convinced that she has a head start on some potentially supernatural murders, and has decided to document her findings in serial podcast form. Think of yourself as the weapons conversation as you investigate strange incidents on Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6 and Nekrotafeyo in search of answers (and looting), with the help of some familiar faces. Eagle-eyed Vault Hunters can even uncover teasers, hints and secrets related to the main story.
In addition, “Director’s Cut” will give you access to three vault cards, which is your ticket to upcoming bundles with theme changes! When playing with a Vault Card actively, you can work to level the card by completing daily and weekly challenges. There is a choice of over 100 unique challenges to pull off, so you never know exactly what each day and week can bring. Make enough progress and you will unlock a massive cache of cosmetics, plus some extremely powerful equipment that scales to your level.
The first of the three vault cards, which will be launched as part of “Director’s Cut”, contains items honoring some of Borderland’s most beloved fallen heroes; the remaining two vault cards are scheduled to be launched by the end of 2021. The vault card content does not expire, and when more vault cards are available, you have the option to choose which one you want to activate at any time.
And finally, the “Director’s Cut” supplement delivers a treasure chest with never before seen content behind the scenes. You get a look at the evolution of Borderlands 3, from bloopers to cutting content, and has access to a gallery that shows concept art, storyboards, lost maps and lots of footage that charts the game’s development.
Disciples of the Vault
Today’s episode of The Borderlands The show also surprised the Vault Hunters with a new set of “Multiverse” cosmetic multipacks called “The Disciples of the Vault.” Like “Final Form” multipacks, “The Disciples of the Vault” multipacks each contain a unique Vault Hunter Body with a new head to match. These latest cosmetics give you a look at what would have become of Vault Hunters if they joined Children of the Vault and will be available for purchase individually, although Season Pass 2 and Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition owners will receive all four multipacks at no extra charge. In any case, “The Disciples of The Vault” will be released on March 18.
Borderlands 3 is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam and Epic Games Store and Stadia.
