The second half of the second Borderlands 3 season pass, the Director’s Cut, launches on March 18th and includes a wealth of new content. Let’s dive in!
Hemovorous the Invincible
The latest, and most challenging raid boss yet, Hemovorous is a massive varkid that according to Gearbox will drop some of the best loot in the game.
- Must complete the main story campaign and own the Director’s Cut to fight.
- Scales with player level and mayhem level.
- Costs 500 Eridium to battle.
Ava’s Murder Mysteries and behind-the-scenes content
Elsewhere in the Borderlands 3 universe, Ava is convinced she has a lead on some potentially supernatural slayings and has decided to document her findings in serialized podcast form. Join her and other familiar faces as a gun-toting co-host for a series of new story missions that take place on Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6, and Nekrotafeyo. Special guest Randy Varnell, head of the Gearbox Story Group, returned to The Borderlands Show to delve into the details of these new missions.
The making of Ava’s Mysteriouslier podcast isn’t all running and gunning (though you can expect plenty of gore-soaked firefights along the way). To help solve this string of seemingly paranormal happenings, you’ll sometimes need to stop and take stock of a crime scene and deduce your next steps based on environmental clues. What you find will send ripples throughout the rest of Borderlands 3’s story, but we’ll let you solve those mysteries yourself.
Another exciting addition in Director’s Cut are the Vault Cards: three new challenge-based progression tracks that will unlock a bevy of themed cosmetics plus some supremely powerful gear that scales to your level, all managed via a new tab in your ECHO Device. The first of the three Vault Cards will launch as part of Director’s Cut, featuring items that honor some of the franchise’s most beloved fallen heroes; the remaining two Vault Cards are scheduled to launch by the end of 2021. Vault Card content can be activated at any time once released, and when multiple Vault Cards are available you’ll have the option to select which one you want activate.
When you have a Vault Card active, you’ll be presented with three daily challenges and one multi-tiered weekly challenge that will grant a sizable chunk of XP when completed. There’s a selection of over 100 unique challenges to pull from, so you never know exactly what each day or week may bring. Because they offer another method for gaining XP, completing Vault Card challenges will also help you level up new characters faster!
The Director’s Cut also includes new skins and additional updates as well. Lastly, the latest update from the development team also includes details on the Tales from the Borderlands relaunch along with the Broken Hearts Day Event that begins this weekend. You can find further details here!
Borderlands 3 has grown into a truly massive title, similar in a way to Borderlands 2, and the continued support of new areas, loot, bosses, and more is fantastic to see. Will you be jumping back in?
