With the imminent release of Borderlands 3 on next-gen consoles and the upcoming Season Pass 2, fans are eagerly awaiting what’s to come. The next-gen release brings a lot of high-quality features to the title, but the Season Pass is the most interesting for all fans. It brings along the Director’s Cut and the Designer’s Cut DLCs of the game. We don’t know much about the Director’s Cut yet, but the Designer’s Cut brings along new skill trees for each of the vault hunters. Today though, we got information regarding the new mode coming to Borderlands 3, Arms Race. You can check out its trailer below.
Arms Race brings a new twist on the formula for Borderlands 3. If you’re familiar with the game Escape from Tarkov, you’ll likely see a lot of similarities with this new mode. For those who don’t know, Arms Race drops players into a brand new arena with one goal, collect as much loot as possible. You’ll run through this new arena, slaughtering foes and picking up everything you can find. Once you feel as though you’re ready, you’ll escape and take all that sweet gear with you. Be careful though because if you die, all of your gear goes with you. You’ll have to balance the risks and the rewards if you are to escape with some top tier loot for your Vault Hunter.
That alone should excite you, as it excites me. The team also revealed new cosmetics though, in the form of the Final Form cosmetics. These cosmetic sets look into what the Vault Hunters could’ve been in a different universe, had they never become Vault Hunters. These are interchangeable with the current Vault Hunter outfits and heads, so you could have someone’s Final Form head with a new body if you wish. These look stunning, especially Moze’s new outfit. I love that new Soviet look she has to her.
I’m excited to see how these look in Borderlands 3, as well as what the Director’s Cut of the game entails. I’d love to hear your thoughts though. Are you going to use any of the new outfits? What sort of loot do you hope to get in Arms Race? Let me know in the comments below!
