With Borderlands 3 less than two weeks away from launch, it's time to start looking past the experience we get on day one. While it is sure to be an incredibly meaty game from the day it releases, Gearbox's latest will be continuously updated with free content drops and paid DLC.
Between the 13th September launch and 2020, the looter shooter will receive two free event updates and the first of the four pieces of DLC planned for the title. The two pieces that arrive at no extra cost, Bloody Harvest and Maliwan Takedown, will include new content, activities, enemies, and exclusive rewards. Furthermore, the latter will introduce a new map and powerful rewards that can be earned by defeating a new boss.
The first major piece of downloadable content wasn't detailed in any depth, but we can expect it to be of a good length and introduce new areas, weapons, and classes. And, of course, much more content will follow next year. Are you excited to dive into Borderlands 3 on 13th September? Loot and shoot in the comments below.
Excited is not the word. In just over a week I've replayed through both Normal and TVHM in Borderlands 2 just to try and satisfy my hype.
I try not to get too hyped up for coming releases but I've always been a big fan of the series and considering its been what... 6 years is it, since The Pre-Sequel, I just cannot wait to get my hands on this.
I'll wait till the borderlands 3 GOTY ed then thanks
I'm pretty hyped, to be honest. I slapped my hand from getting The Handsome Jack Collection because I want BL3 to feel fresh.
Great news! Going to start the Commander Lilith DLC Next week to have everything fresh for launch day. SO excited to finally play this!
@Splat yea, I forced myself to take a break too, but I’m gonna replay Tales from the Borderlands because I forget a lot of it.
@Mega-Gazz It's so good. I REALLY hope we get another season with TT coming back...
Other than the humour really not being my thing, I enjoyed 2 and TPS. I’m not a fan of them releasing roadmaps before the game even launches though, then they could at least pretend certain DLC couldn’t have been included on the disc.
@nessisonett I think we’ve got past that point since so many complete editions of games release and you have to download the extra content. I’m not saying the extra content isn’t created before the release, I just believe they are getting smarter and not putting it on the disc.
Will the events only be available for a limited time?
Hmmm I wonder if there will be any new playable characters added later on.
Can we a have link to the roadmap or a picture of it in the article?
@Tasuki - Probably not according to Randy....

I really want this game...it seems a good improvement from the second. I'm trying to finish the second but the shooting is a bit off..the gameplay is good because of the weapons but the way the real gameplay works (the shooting) is just wrong! And from videos I've seen 3 seems much better. Maybe I'll leave 2 for later and just play 3...
@KnightWolf Same here, not going to play an incomplete game.
I'm not sure this will do too well sales wise
there's also a 100% chance it'll be half price by November.
games drop down in price far too quickly today.
