Available as either a separate DLC purchase or as part of the game’s second season pass, 2K Games and Gearbox Software has released the Director’s Cut add-on content for Borderlands 3 across all platforms. In addition to new content being introduced in-game, true to its name, this pack also seeks to showcase behind-the-scenes content.
Director’s Cut includes a colossal Varkid raid boss named Hemovorous the Invincible, as well as an interplanetary murder mystery. You’ll also find the first of three planned Vault Cards. By completing Vault Card challenges, you gain progress toward unlocking themed rewards, including unique Legendary gear, new cosmetic items, and a brand new in-game resource: Diamond Keys (which enable you to unlock a whole room full of special loot).
The behind-the-scenes content being introduced in the Director’s Cut DLC includes a gallery of concept artwork, deleted scenes, a look at the development team’s favourite pre-release bugs and more.
Coinciding with the release of Director’s Cut, the Disciples of the Vault cosmetic packs have been granted to players who own Season Pass 2 or Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition and are now available for purchase separately. These cosmetic packs show who Borderlands 3’s Vault Hunters would have become if they’d joined the Children of the Vault. Each character-specific pack includes a Vault Hunter body and matching head, which you can mix and match with any other customization options you have in your collection.
In addition, two new machines have now been added to the base game: Crazy Earl’s Reroll and Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine, both of which are available to all players at no additional cost. Crazy Earl’s Reroll replaces the existing Anointment on a specified item in exchange for some Eridium. Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine offers top-tier Legendary loot and will be hidden in a new location within the base game each week. It’ll be up to the Borderlands community to track it down and see what he’s got.
Developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games, Borderlands 3 is available to purchase on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store), Mac and Google Stadia.
