The DLC was revealed during the third "Borderlands Show" hosted by Greg Miller and Fran Mirabella of Kinda Funny Games, and they were joined this time by Gearbox Studio Head Randy Pitchford to discuss all the details (which starts at the 33:00 mark in the video). The content itself is geared towards players that have progressed far enough along in the campaign to reach Sanctuary III and are at least level 13. Enemies will scale based on player level, of course, so if you're already at level 50 and strolling through Mayhem 4, you'll still be challenged by the foes in this new content. There will be new loot to chase in the casino and new characters to meet. Gearbox is currently stating that the average playtime for this content is around 8 hours, so it's certainly a beefy update. More details will be revealed as that December 19 date gets closer.

You can read the full details of the event over on the official announcement page, but the short summary is this: go talk to an NPC on Sanctuary III, go kill certain enemies to collect enough of a material, go back and talk to the NPC (sound familiar?), and then go to the new spooky area, "Heck." There's a new boss, Captain Haunt, to fight at the end of this area, and there's a new "Terror" debuff that can be inflicted upon you by the enemies in that area. When you've got the "terror" debuff, your vision will be partially clouded and it will be harder to aim. The good news is that there are special "Anointed" weapons you can get that will turn that debuff into a buff.

It’s been seven years since the last proper Borderlands game was released, though a prequel and an adventure game spinoff helped fill the gap. In Borderlands 3, Gearbox returns to the helm and has delivered a (mostly) successful sequel that improves the gameplay in meaningful ways while staying close to the formula that made the series a favo...

We’ve included the video (below) where  Borderlands 3 Creative Director, Paul Sage, spoke with Greg Miller and Fran Mirabella of Kinda Funny after a stream of the game. While the stream runs 1:25:19, you can find Sage beginning at 42:25 and the Bloody Harvest discussion at 55:55. However, as the content includes a new boss battle, location, costume(s), weapon(s), shields, grenade mods and more, you may prefer to read the full list on the official blog post here rather than watch the interview.

That said, IGN has shown in a video some serious issues that specifically plague the PlayStation 4 version of the game and its split-screen couch co-op mode. Everything from framerate issues, textures not loading, unreadable text and hitches in the action can make the game almost unplayable. Check out this video.

New for co-op players is instanced scaling, so you can join a friend regardless of level or progression and not be slaughtered by a swarm of angry midgets. Console players can enjoy split screen, combo co-op, and online co-op play while PC gamers will be treated to...uh...Epic Games Store exclusivity?

Breaking these down one-by-one, let's talk about the New Game Plus, or "True Vault Hunter Mode." After you've beaten the campaign on "Normal" (which you have to do), you can then play through it all again on True Vault Hunter. You keep your gear and stats, but none of the campaign progress. Enemies will be tougher, but you'll also be getting better gear, and really, isn't that what the game is all about? Getting better guns and watching numbers go up?

Although the picture below does include a very accessible way to review the minimum and recommended equipment needed for Borderlands 3, developer Gearbox has posted the full list of information on their website, which we have included below as well. It’s also worth noting that the game will be on Google Stadia when that service launches later this year and will allow PC players to enjoy the game regardless of their system’s specifications. The only thing needed is a solid Internet connection.
