Brand new crossplay, permanent seasonal event toggling, new level cap, and more are coming in the free update that is out now. Get ready, vault hunters – an exciting update is coming with a Marcus-driven busload of new features. Crossplay is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Mac, Stadia and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, starting yesterday. The most popular event is also making a comeback. Clues: title.
The return of a fan favorite in the form of The Revengence of Revenge of the Cartels lets players cheer on Joey Ultraviolet and his gang again, as well as Sanctuary III’s own mascot Maurice. He will ask the archery hunters to wipe out cartel agents, which can be found almost everywhere, both in vanilla games and DLCs. Once you have burned off enough agents and collected coordinates for their hiding places from their corpses, Maurice can open a portal to the main event – an explosive final in Villa Ultraviolet against the cartel’s leader Joey Ultraviolet. The event has new cosmetic rewards, all of which are detailed the game’s official website.
The crossplay update also comes with “Endless Seasonal Events”. You can now take part in all seasonal events that have appeared in Borderlands 3. Bloody Harvest, Broken Hearts Day and Revenge of the Cartels are available, just as long as you want. A new option is in the main menu allowing you to choose which of these three events you want to shoot in by simply turning on or off. These annual events have their own, unique cosmetic rewards, as well as exclusive drops from year one and year two. In other words, you can collect them at your own pace. Progress will not be zeroed if you have not completed some challenges before – on the contrary. You can unload several times to get exactly the gear you want.
Speaking of events – from June 24 18:00, to July 1 17:59, comes the effect of all six True Trials mini-events be active. This means that all six Trials bosses get the same amount of health and damage boosts and they can all drop two predetermined legendary items. The coffin at the end will be smocked with legendary mums as well.
Last but not least – levelcap gets an increase to 72, which gives a full 70 skill points to place. This of course gives even more opportunities to effectively shoot, grill, shock, melt and blow up various enemies.
