Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 3 is a lot bigger than it used to be when it launched. The game is due for more changes and additions once the developers launch the next set of content via the second season pass.
As per the developers, the second season pass for Borderlands 3 will launch on Nov. 10. The additional content will be available for the current and new-gen versions of the game. As usual, the season pass drops a ton of new content for Vault Hunters. Here’s everything we know so far.
More ways to play
As per the developers, the next season pass will introduce two more add-ons to the game. These two new add-ons will be unlike anything that they’ve done before. Basically, the developers want to introduce content that has been made to change the way the game is played.

The season will introduce Designer’s Cut and Director’s Cut DLCs. These DLCs will offer new modes, among others. However, we’ve yet to know what that exact content is. As per the developers, the first to drop is the Designer’s Cut, which arrives on November 10. There’s no release date for the Director’s Cut, but they are planning to release it in Spring 2021.
The Designer’s Cut will add a Skill Tree for each Vault Hunter. Additionally, there will be a new game mode called Arms Race. The developers will dive into what these means for Borderlands 3 in the weeks leading up to the launch.
Moving forward, the developers have revealed a release schedule for the upcoming streams about the new content. It is as follows:
- October 20, 9:00 AM PT – Amara/FL4K new Skill Tree reveals with live streams and a special episode of Ultimate Vault Hunters
- October 22, 9:00 AM PT – Moze/Zane new Skill Tree reveals with live streams and a special episode of Ultimate Vault Hunters
- October 29, 9:00 AM PT – The Borderlands Show premieres, featuring the new Arms Race mode and much more
- October 30, 9:00 AM PT – The Bordercast debuts the first live, hands-on Arms Race gameplay
This new content for Borderlands 3 is sure to excite every Vault Hunter out there. It seems like the new set of DLCs will be focused more on new ways to play instead of story content. The first set of DLCs added new story elements to the game. It’s good that the developers are changing things up this time around so that players have a lot more to expect.
