Borderland’s 3 Designer’s Cut is scheduled for release this week, so we’re here to give you all the details on release times and all the key features you can expect from DLC 5. This handy guide summarizes everything you need to know about the first half of Season Pass 2.
When will the Borderlands 3 Designer’s Cut update be released?
According to an official tweet released on Thursday morning, the Borderlands 3 Designer’s Cut DLC is expected to go live at around 8am on November 9th EST. At that time, PS4, Xbox One and PC users should be able to download and purchase content from their respective storefronts.
Please note that you must purchase the DLC on the day of launch as no pre-release versions are available. The Designer’s Cut DLC costs $14.99 as a standalone download or $29.99 if it is included in Season Pass 2. It is anticipated that some sort of in-game client update will be required to unlock the new content, but this has not yet been officially confirmed.
What you can expect from Borderlands 3 Designers Cut
For those of you who have not been up to date with the Borderlands 3 news, here is a brief summary of what to expect as part of the latest download.
New Skill Trees: Each Vault Hunter will receive a fourth skill tree with new action skills.
FL4K [Trapper Skill Tree]: A defensive skill tree. Includes the Gravity Sling Action Skills and the Hyperion Loading Robot Pet.
Amara [Enlightened Force Skill Tree]: A Skill Tree: A Skill Tree that focuses on Elemental damage with the Phase Lightning Action skill.
Moze [Bear Moher Tree of Dexterity]: A Tree of Dexterity: An incendiary damage pattern that focuses on double swing and gunfire. The Iron Boy action skill fights alongside Iron Bear.
Zane [The Tree of Professional Skills]: This tree was designed for stacking skills using the MNTIS Shoulder Cannon Action Skill.
Arms race: In this new game mode, players set their desired level of equipment and then enter a predetermined map. Avoid the area of the Murdercane Circle, which is shrinking at increasingly rapid intervals as you collect loot and fight enemies along the way. You start with nothing and work your way to a battle for a big boss in the middle of the map. In many ways, this is the PvE Battle Royale.
That’s all we know about Borderland’s 3 Designer’s Cut right now, but you can take a closer look at the new skill trees by visiting the individual character pages for FL4K, Amara, Zane, and Moze.
Borderlands 3 is now available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
