Borderlands 3 Celebrates Two Years Of Mayhem With Five Weeks Of Events
Time to load up and take on the bad guys in a series of events. It will be interesting to see what they have to show. The press release is below.
Two years since launch and Borderlands® 3 is still going strong, all thanks to the unstoppable Borderlands community! There’s been plenty of mayhem made since the game’s previous Year in Review check-in, including the highly-requested Crossplay Update; in-game additions like Crazy Earl’s Reroll Machine and Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine; and the launch of the Director’s Cut* add-on, with its raid boss, story missions, behind-the-scenes content, and Vault Cards.
To celebrate the second anniversary of Borderlands 3 on September 13, 2021, we have five weeks of mini-events lined up to show our appreciation for the community’s passion and support! Starting August 12, the fan-favorite Loot the Universe series of mini-events that reward you with loads of Legendary loot for seeing (then shooting) the planetary sights will be back.
Each week during Loot the Universe, a different Borderlands 3 planet will become a bastion of better drops, with specific types of Legendary loot having increased chances of dropping in one of that planet’s zones. You’ll get to keep all the bonus Legendary loot you find during these mini-events, and it’ll be up to the community to discover what kind of Legendary loot drops where, so mark your calendars:
- Week 1 (9:00 AM PT August 12 to 8:59 AM PT August 19) – Pandora;
- Week 2 (9:00 AM PT August 19 to 8:59 AM PT August 26) – Promethea;
- Week 3 (9:00 AM PT August 26 to 8:59 AM PT September 2) – Eden-6;
- Week 4 (9:00 AM PT September 2 to 8:59 AM PT September 9) – Nekrotafeyo.
The fun doesn’t stop after your galactic tour! Starting September 9 at 9:00 AM PT, two more mini-events commence in tandem (and conclude one week later): Mayhem Made Mild, where you’ll only encounter Easy modifiers in Mayhem Mode; and Show Me the Eridium, which grants increased Eridium drops and Eridium item discounts. We have even more planned for the big day on September 13, but we don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet. Expect to see more details closer to Borderlands 3’s second birthday.
Borderlands 3 is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
