Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut arrives in March – Tales from the Borderlands returns to digital stores

Gearbox had a bunch of fan-pleasing announcements in the latest The Borderlands Show, with the release date for the Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut add-on set for 18th March across all platforms – PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC & Stadia. The Director’s Cut is part of Season Pass 2, which will also see a bunch of new premium cosmetics adde to the game, while everyone can enjoy the returning Broken Hearts Day seasonal event, and pick up the game at a healthy discount. Speaking of buying games, Tales from the Borderlands, one of Telltale’s best graphic adventures, is also returning to digital stores next week!

Take on a new raid boss in Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut


The Director’s Cut will arrive individually or as part of Season Pass 2, featuring a range of new content added to the game. While not a significant new story arc for the game, like the expansions found in Season Pass 1, there’s still plenty of new looter shooting to be getting on with. The headline act is the new raid boss: Hemovorous the Invincible, a huge Varkid that’s been hidden away behind a door on Pandora since launch. There’s also a series of murder mystery missions spread across Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6, and Nekrotafeyo, introducing new locations and crime scene analysis gameplay.

The Director’s Cut will bring a bunch of behind the scenes content form the game’s development, including bloops (who doesn’t love bloops?), cut content, and a gallery of concept art, storyboards, maps and more. Then there’s the trio of Vault Cards which unlock bundles of themed loot through daily and weekly challenges, with one card active at launch and the other two coming later in 2021.

But that’s not all for Season Pass 2, with the new premium cosmetics, The Disciples of the Vault, also announced. There’s four multipacks available, each with a unique vault hunter body and head, and they’ll arrive alongside the Director’s Cut on 18th March. This all compliments the Designer’s Cut that arrived back in November.

Broken Hearts Day is also back running from now until 25th February, with hearts hovering around lovesick enemies throughout the game. Shoot enough hearts and you’ll unlock five special themed rewards including reclours of last year’s cosmetics and two Legendary weapons.

To hop into the action, Borderlands 3’s various versions are between 50% and 72% off across Xbox, PlayStation and PC via both Steam and Epic.

And finally, the graphic adventure Tales from the Borderlands is returning to digital storefronts on 17th February, after having spent more than a year in limbo after the collapse of Telltale Games in its original form. Set between the events of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3, there’s plenty of choices to be made as you shape the events of the Borderlands universe. The game will be returning to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, but you’ll be able to play on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backward compatibility.

In our review for Borderlands 3, Jason wrote:

I’ve got very mixed feelings about Borderlands 3. Overall I like it and it’s fun to play, but it could have been so much more and the writing feels like time traveling back to your high school days and being surprised and a little disappointed at how immature everyone is. Few things in life are as embarrassing as the person you were five years ago. If you’re not embarrassed, then I’m sorry to say that you may well be the Borderlands 3 of your friend group; stuck in the past unable to grow or change in any meaningful way, relying on fart jokes as a stand-in for your personality.

While not to everyone’s tastes, Borderlands 3 has been very well supported. There’s been a ton of added content for Borderlands 3, with regular seasonal event, the first Season Pass – which waded in with a string of new campaigns to battle through, including Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock, Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption and Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck – and now Season Pass 2, which took a different approach to adding content. Oh, and then there were the free upgrades to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
