Borderlands 3 Deluxe Edition Bonus Content Revealed
Borderlands 3 is setting out on another round of Pandoran vault hunting in just over a month’s time and while hype is surely mounting over the looter shooter, Gearbox has assured much more will await when the game actually reaches release. The long-awaited launch itself is now set to have a special Borderlands 3 Deluxe Edition, the package confirmed to come packed with additional bonus items such as cosmetic skins, weapons, as well as other spiffy loot.
As recently laid out on the Borderlands website, the Deluxe offering will firstly include a set of skins called the Retro Cosmetic Pack, it boasting a stylish color scheme of red, black, and tan items. Weapons, Echo Devices and the game’s quartet of Vault Hunters are all decked out in this fitting throwback attire, one that might inspire one to “reminisce about bygone days of dusty cartridges and flimsy floppy disks,” according to Gearbox.
While some shooters are all about stealth and practicality, the Borderlands 3 Deluxe Edition is also offering something completely contrary to that idea with the Neon Cosmetic Pack. The aforementioned cosmetics cover players head-to-toe in luminescent paint, depicting a bright green skeleton overtop combat gear (yes, even the face). Alongside all this ghoulishly glowing gear, the pack comes with a similarly-themed Echo Device as well as a little weapon trinket to help trick out one’s guns with skelly style.
In addition to the above pieces of content, Gearbox confirmed two additional cosmetic sets meant to augment the appearance of players’ weapons: the Gearbox and Toy Box Weapons Packs. The Gearbox pack makes the player’s boomsticks appear shiny and metallic with a “tasteful green and gold trim,” these accompanied by a weapon trinket of the Gearbox company logo. The Toy Box pack outfits weapons with a bright and childlike color scheme, making guns look more like Super Soakers rather than the cannons they represent in the game. Of course, this set also comes with a trinket; a miniature lime-green pistol, because why not?
Of course, these cosmetic packs are only a few of the customization options available in Borderlands 3, the game delving a bit into the ways players can trick out their character on several occasions. Lately, Borderlands 3 has taken these remaining weeks before launch to reveal details about the game’s content, including its emphasis on co-op as well as some rather suggestive content teased by a recent ESRB rating.
Borderlands 3 releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 13th and is a planned launch title for Google Stadia.
