For those still vibing with Borderlands 3's loops of shooting and looting (with a hefty dose of wisecracks all the while), Gearbox has more on the way. Now a year old, Borderlands 3 is bringing its first year of DLC to a close and saying hello to Season Pass 2, which is set to feature two similarly named chunks of DLC: the Designer's Cut and the Director's Cut.
Launching on Nov. 10, the same day as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, the new season pass will debut with the Designer's Cut. There are two major focuses in the Designer's Cut: each Vault Hunter will get a new Skill Tree, and it'll introduce a new game mode called Arms Race.
Over the next few weeks, Gearbox will dole out information on these new skill trees and Arms Race mode in chunks with a series of streams. On Oct. 29 at 9 a.m. PT, Gearbox will premiere another episode of The Borderlands Show hosted by Greg Miller and Fran Mirabella, who'll be joined by guests for a discussion of the Designer's Cut's contents.
As for the Director's Cut, the Borderlands developers aren't saying much at the moment. "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," says Gearbox.
Next month will also see Borderlands 3 get free next-gen upgrades on the new consoles. Cross-save functionality is guaranteed, and on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, Borderlands 3 will run in 4K at 60 FPS.
