Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut Launches March 18

February 13, 2021

Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut launches on March 18 and today we can share with you exactly what to expect in the second expansion of the second season of content for the award winning game.

With a brand new raid boss, murder mystery missions, daily and weekly challenges, and behind the scenes extras, players have more reasons than ever to return to Borderlands 3 next month.

The first DLC pack of season 2 called Borderlands 3: Designer’s Cut launched last november adding a new PvE battle royale gameplay mode where the longer you survive and the more enemies you killed the better rewards you would get. This four-player battle royale changed the way you play Borderlands, so we’re expecting the next DLC to do the same.

Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut features an enticing variety of content, but the headline act is its brand new raid boss: Hemovorous the Invincible, an absolutely titanic Varkid lurking behind a door on Pandora that’s been locked since Borderlands 3 launched. Only the fiercest big game hunters have a chance of kicking her chitinous butt in the pursuit of top-tier loot. Better consider your tactics, refine your build, and bring some friends. Oh, and be ready to get caked in Varkid guts — it’s going to get messy!

Director’s Cut also includes a series of murder mystery missions, featuring brand new locations and a novel crime scene analysis mechanic. Ava is convinced she has a lead on some potentially supernatural slayings and has decided to document her findings in serialized podcast form. Consider yourself her gun-toting co-host as you investigate strange happenings on Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6, and Nekrotafeyo in search of answers (and loot), with help from some familiar faces. Eagle-eyed Vault Hunters may even uncover teasers, hints, and secrets that tie back to the main story.

In addition, Director’s Cut will give you access to three Vault Cards, which are your ticket to upcoming bundles of themed loot! When you play with a Vault Card active, you can work to level-up the card by completing daily and weekly challenges. There’s a selection of over 100 unique challenges to pull from, so you never know exactly what each day and week may bring. Gain enough progress and you’ll unlock a massive cache of themed cosmetics, plus some supremely powerful gear that scales to your level.

The first of the three Vault Cards, which will launch as part of Director’s Cut, features items that honour some of Borderlands’ most beloved fallen heroes; the remaining two Vault Cards are scheduled to launch by the end of 2021. Vault Card content doesn’t expire, and when multiple Vault Cards are available, you’ll have the option to select which one you want active at any given time.
