Game publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software recently revealed exclusive details on upcoming event for recently launched video game sequel Borderlands 3.
Borderlands 3 new event for Halloween
The upcoming new special event for the video game is
titled Bloody Harvest. This is a free, Halloween-themed event that will start
in October and will be on for a limited time only. It will have some themed
Legendary weapons, character skins, enemy types, environments, and one
interesting battle described as spooky.
This will be just one of the many free updates and events
coming to the game. Players will still have to meet certain conditions before
accessing this particular map.
Here are the full details:
Everyone can take part in Bloody Harvest when it goes
live in October, as it’s the first of many free updates and events you can
expect from Borderlands
3. For the duration of the event, any Vault Hunters who have
departed Pandora for the first time and started exploring the far reaches of
space aboard Sanctuary III will start to encounter Haunted enemies around the
galaxy. These Haunted enemies are your key to accessing a new event-specific
map, but watch out—the Ghosts that rise from the bodies of slain Haunted
enemies will do their best to scare you to death. Coming into contact with one
of these aggressive apparitions will induce the new Terror debuff, which
partially shrouds your vision in a mysterious mist and weakens your gun
handling, accuracy, and spread. As you explore the ghost-infested galaxy,
you’ll earn Hecktoplasm that can be turned in to Maurice, your scaly new pal
who’s taken residence aboard Sanctuary III.
Once you’ve earned entry into the Bloody Harvest map,
beware: dreadful dangers abound at every turn. Look to the shadowy sky and
you’ll see winged Rakk-O’-Lanterns soaring through the air, eager to swoop down
and breathe fire in your face. Tread lightly through a ghastly graveyard
crawling with Maliwan goons who’ve reserved a burial plot just for you. Resist
the urge to retch as you fight through a Ratch-infested pit with rivers of
blood running through it.
Should you survive these blood-curdling battles, you’ll
come face to skull with the Baron of Bloody Harvest himself. If you’ve been
braving the many planets of Borderlands
3‘s story campaign, you might remember facing off against Captain
Traunt, a gigantic Maliwan heavy soldier with some killer elemental attacks.
He’s back, albeit a bit bonier, as Captain Haunt, complete with some spooky new
powers. Any who dare to enter the domain of this monstrous, bone-headed boss
should be ready for one hell of a fight.
Of course, Bloody Harvest is also the perfect time to
rock some costumes, and you’ll be able to earn some new cosmetic rewards during
the event. All told, you can add an ECHO Device Skin, a Weapon Trinket, a skin
for each of the four Vault Hunters (which also apply to Moze’s mech Iron Bear
and Fl4K’s pets), and ultimately a Global Weapon Skin to your collection if you
dedicate yourself to destroying the undead. There’s also new Legendary loot to
farm, including two guns and a shield that play into the new Terror mechanic,
as well as a grenade mod. Additionally, new Anointed loot drops from Haunted
enemies, Ghosts, and Captain Haunt will have a chance to have Terror-based
modifiers. Here’s a look at some of the spooky swag that you can only earn
during Bloody Harvest:
Borderlands 3 is already available on PlayStation 4.
