Numerous Games as a Service will be making the case for you to check out their Halloween events over the next couple of weeks, one of which is Borderlands 3. Already announced a handful of weeks back, the free Bloody Harvest event will bring terror to PlayStation 4 players in just a few days from Thursday 24th October.
Lasting right up until the beginning of December, vault hunters will be able to get their hands on a new legendary weapon, new character skins, weapon trinkets, and a new Echo Device skin. Taking down an all-new boss is what you'll need to do in order to acquire them, but the standard enemies you'll find across each and every one of Borderlands 3's planets haven't been left out in the cold. They too have received a spooky makeover.
Are you heading back to Borderlands 3 to check out this new content? Cause a fright in the comments below.
@thebakerswife I agree, which is why I’m always glad when Archives and Anniversary come around in Overwatch, the skins are way more interesting than seeing yet another Santa skin.
@thebakerswife It’s just a genre like any other so it’s perfectly fine to not enjoy the style of GaaS. For me, I was really into MMOs when I was younger and GaaS provide the same sorta feel without the massive time sink.
@thebakerswife nooope. I think they're fantastic.
Just got the game. What level does your character have to be in order to play this event?
@thebakerswife - I think you're pointing at the wrong game here. Borderlands has pretty much none of the things you complain about. The recent weekly events were to celebrate 10 years of Borderlands. This Halloween event is a throwback event that was also in Borderlands 2 almost 7 years ago, long before most GaaS games were even a thing.
I don't disagree with your points but this really isn't the game to aim them at. Borderlands has always done great things with DLC and any extra stuff like Headhunter packs cost very little money. Go take a look at the 10 dollar emotes and weapon skins in Destiny 2 and you'll see how good Gearbox are at not rinsing the wallets of their playerbase at every turn.
@thebakerswife yeah free stuff is just terrible...
@thebakerswife one mans junk is another mans treasure. They add free stuff to do for halloween. How is that bad??
@thebakerswife - I think your points are valid but better served on most Ubi or EA games. Gearbox have mostly done right by their BL players. Take2 are guilty of pretty scummy practices but for now at least Borderlands 3 hasn't been tainted by them.
@WanderingBullet - Once you make it to Sanctuary you'll have access to the event content via a new NPC.
@thebakerswife on a general level I agree with you.
On a specific level I can't disagree more, since BL3 is microtranstaction free and this is a free DLC.
The game is full of content
Looking forward to this completed the game a few weeks ago (except the circle of slaughters) & didn't really want to do another playthrough so have been looking forward to some new content
They are free content that you are not forced to take part in. At least it was that way in World of Warcraft. Most Players looked forward to them when the correct Month rolled around.
If anyone wants to help me do the circle of slaughter & proving ground quests my psn is LUKEOTISSMITH94
@thebakerswife I know what you mean for me its annoying that i have too play a game at a certain time. Its like yes you have too play me now or you will miss the loot. But to bee fair Borderlands 3 is one of the few games that is not murdered by microtransactions. 😁
