It’s a busy week for Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 3.

In the meantime, check out trailers for everything new below.
The next-gen versions of Borderlands 3 run in 4K/60 FPS for single-player and online co-op on Xbox Series X and PS5. Local split-screen support is also expanded to allow four players to co-op together while vertical split-screen is being added for two player co-op (and comes to current-gen versions as well). Current gen owners can avail of the upgrades for free.
As for Season Pass 2, its first DLC – the Designer’s Cut – is now available and adds four new Skill Trees, one for each Vault Hunter. It also brings Arms Race, a new PvE mode that sees players dropping into a map without weapons and abilities. Collecting different loot allows for combating the more serious threats and extracting lets you keep that loot. Beware though – dying means losing everything and starting over. The Director’s Cut DLC is out in 2021 so stay tuned for more details.
