Gearbox has announced the next major campaign DLC coming for Borderlands 3, and it’s a tribute to Westerns. Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption takes the Vault Hunters to the deserts of the planet Gehenna, where they’ll be getting involved in a frontier skirmish between the residents of a small town and a gang of fearsome outlaws called the Devil Riders.

Last month, on April 7, Borderlands 3 got a new minigame called Borderlands Science, a “puzzle game that benefits the real-world scientific community as you play” by getting players involved in helping to map the human gut microbiome. Now, 2K and Gearbox have shared a bunch of stats they’ve scooped up about the minigame so far – and they’re pretty eye-watering. More than 36 million puzzles have been solved since launch. That’s an average of 1.2 million per day.
Borderlands 3‘s endgame gear rework is coming, and very soon – Gearbox has provided the final Mayhem 2.0 release date, along with some last-minute details on how the new version of the grind will work. That includes a bit of info on the new and returning unique Legendary weapons that will drop on the highest levels of difficulty.
It’s finally time for Borderlands 3 to hit Valve’s store, so the Steam stalwarts among you can finally breathe easy and enjoy your looting and shooting. In accordance with an earlier announcement, Borderlands 3 pre-loads are now live, and that naturally means pre-orders are up, too – and you can enjoy a substantial discount for your patience.
Borderlands 3 is coming to Steam very soon, but that’s not the only news to come out of Gearbox’s PAX East panel today. The studio has also revealed the next wave of DLC plans for Borderlands 3, including a full breakdown of the second add-on, and some hints about what to expect from the third expansion contained in the season pass.
Borderlands 3 launched back in September after years of anticipation, but the rigours of modern game development don’t stop on a release date. Gearbox’s loot shooter – you can’t make me say ‘looter shooter,’ don’t try – has already gotten a load of free content updates, and now it’s time for the first big DLC expansion. The Handsome Jackpot release date is here.
Now that Gearbox’s RPG shooter Borderlands 3 has been out for a couple of weeks, we’ve got a rough idea of how many players have been getting their teeth into it. It had a pretty big launch, doubling Borderlands 2’s peak player count on PC on launch day, and selling more than five million copies in its first five days. However, it looks like Borderlands 3’s viewership on Twitch has seen quite a dip since its release – it’s dropped 93%.
Prolific voice actor Troy Baker played Rhys in Tales from the Borderlands. Rhys returned in Borderlands 3, but Baker did not – and the reasons why became a weirdly public debate as Baker and Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford provided contradictory accounts on social media and at convention Q&As. More recent statements and interviews reveal it was a union dispute – but the parties involved still can’t agree on what happened, and another Gearbox statement has raised even more ire.
Borderlands 3 is starting to see its first handful of post-launch updates, and now that players have put the Vault Hunters through their paces, we’re starting to see some substantial balance changes. After yesterday’s major patch fixed the Killavolt fight, today’s hotfix addresses some of the most common issues with the player characters.
Borderlands 3 gets its first big patch today, and you know what means: it’s time for patch notes! Today’s list includes a broad range of bug fixes, UI improvements, and performance tweaks, but perhaps the most important detail is that it’s totally not just you: that boss fight against Killavolt is in fact broken.
