Bounty of Blood‘s Wild West-inspired tale of revenge takes place on an all-new planet called Gehenna. The company responsible for some science-y experiments here has long since abandoned the planet, and descendants of the folks who chose to stay behind work hard to eke out a peaceful existence for themselves in and around the town of Vestige. Even if you don't have the DLC, Borderlands 3 is increasing the level cap to 60 for all players.

Borderlands 3 Update Overhauls End Game ContentNick Puleo

For starters, there are now more than 25 all-new game-changing modifiers. These range from fun and even helpful modifiers like a big head mode called Galaxy Brain to more challenging modifiers like Drone Ranger, which spawns Healing Drones to assist enemies. Each modifier is rated as Easy, Medium, Hard, or Very Hard, and each of the 10 difficulty levels in Mayhem 2.0 uses a specific mix of these ratings, though the modifiers themselves are selected at random from within those ratings pools.

The minigame, which can be found in a corner of Doctor Tannis' infirmary, is something of an arcade puzzler wherein the player maps out rows of tiles to the best of their ability.  What's going on behind the scenes, though, is that the results of these sessions help researchers map out and catalogue the human gut biome.  On top of that, participating players will earn in-game currency that they can then spend on character boosting items.  The whole operation is laid out in more detail in the video below:

It's about to get meatier, too, as its campaign DLC, "Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock” is releasing on March 26th.  To help bridge that nine day gap of anticipation, Gearbox has provided us with a nice helping of gameplay footage.  While it may not last us a long time under current conditions, I imagine a combination of watching the below video and playing the core game will be enough to get you through the wait.

The arrival of Borderlands 3 on Steam is well-timed with the impending release of the next bit of paid DLC, titled "Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock." If you're be hopping into the game for the first time and want to avoid any potential story spoilers, then you've got some time to play through the campaign before the DLC arrives, though it's worth noting that it is not at all required to play through the whole game to access the DLC. Per Gearbox, "When creating a new Vault Hunter you have the option to bypass the opening acts of the Borderlands 3 story and head to Xylourgos right away. Enemies and loot on the all-new ice planet will scale to your Vault Hunter's level." The DLC will be available to purchase individually for $14.99 (same as the first DLC, "Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot"), or you can get it and all other DLC via the $50 Season Pass. You can check out the trailer for the new content below.

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...

The full list of bosses and what gear they drop can be found over in the official posting, but your window of opportunity for this is limited. This event ends next Tuesday, October 8, at 12:00 PM EDT. The next event, "Rare Spawn Hunt," will kick off at that time and will run for a week. Here's the schedule and planned events:

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.
