Borderlands 3 Fall And Winter Content Calendar Revealed
Borderlands 3 will be arriving in less than two weeks at this point, which mean it is time to start building up a nice snack and drink collection to get through the impending grind. Of course, once the grind of the main story is over with, there will be plenty of goodies for players to enjoy, which Gearbox has recently detailed.
Those who are familiar with the Borderlands series and have played past titles know that once the main story is complete, that’s when things get really interesting. True Vault Hunter Mode will be available once again alongside Guardian Rank, “which is an evolution of the Badass Rank mechanic introduced in Borderlands 2,” according to Gearbox. In addition to this, Borderlands 3 will see the introduction of the all-new Mayhem Mode. Here’s a bit more on each:
- GUARDIAN RANK – If you’re familiar with previous Borderlands’ Badass Rank system, the basic idea is the same: you can unlock incremental stat improvements that apply to all your Vault Hunters. As you gain experience, you fill a special Guardian Rank XP bar. Every bar you fill unlocks a Guardian Token, which you can spend to unlock bonus stats across three distinct trees. The further you progress, the better the rewards available to you.
- TRUE VAULT HUNTER MODE – This is Borderlands 3’s take on New Game+. The enemies will be tougher and the loot will be better compared to your Normal mode conquests. Whether you select Normal or True Vault Hunter when starting up a new campaign, your character’s mission progress is unique to each playthrough. However, your Vault Hunters’ stats and equipment are shared across both modes.
- MAYHEM MODE – After completing the campaign, you’ll activate a mysterious terminal aboard Sanctuary III that offers three Mayhem Mode difficulty levels. Enabling one of these Mayhem Modes ups the ante on risks and rewards across all worlds: enemies get increased health, shields, and armor, while you get bonus cash, Eridium, experience gains, and chances for better loot (including “Anointed” gear). Mayhem Mode also applies a random selection of modifiers called Mayhem Mods to every planet you visit. For instance, you might get a Mayhem Mod like “You’re a Wizard,” which reduces the damage players do with normal bullets but increases their elemental damage.
Of course, these lovely modes won’t be the only thing that will be available in Borderlands 3. There will also be some glorious content popping up after the game’s release, including the Bloody Harvest Event, the Maliwan Takedown, and the first major DLC.
