Gearbox's Borderlands 3 has not been on the market that long, since the developers are already adding a new in-game event. “Bloody Harvest”, translated as Bloody Harvest, is the first themed DLC to be released in October, just in time for the horror festival Halloween. In addition to cool stuff with a scary look, ghost opponents, a new final boss and topic-specific debuffs will make their way into the Halloween event. 

Dataminers had already discovered the first signs of a special Halloween event. Gearbox has now officially announced that a themed DLC for Borderlands 3 will be released. The developers have already published information about the content, but there is not yet an exact date when the DLC should appear.

Borderlands 3 on Halloween: Special boss appears

Even with Borderlands 3, Gearbox is pursuing the Release long term plans. The developer is therefore expanding the loot shooter under the motto “Games as a Service” with new content in the future, including various free in-game events.

It starts already in October, then in time for Halloween with the DLC “Bloody Harvest” (Bloody Harvest). The special event not only attracts players with a new map including ghost enemies, but also sends their own boss onto the virtual battlefield. In addition, among other things, special rewards, new challenges and other content ensure entertaining entertainment in the horror month.

Spread over the entire galaxy, players encounter all kinds of spooky types of opponents during the event, who then - presumably through a special quest - open up access to an event map. The first screenshots of the DLC give an impression of the expected content and the atmosphere.

The highlight on the new map: Eliminated opponents stand up again as ghosts and distribute the new terror debuff in the event of direct contact. The consequences: the field of vision is restricted and weapon handling is made more difficult. Players who master the challenges will meet “Captain Haunt”, the boss who comes into play with the Borderlands 3 DLC. The captain is not entirely new. It was already on the road in a modified form during the campaign.

Players can also get hold of new rewards as part of the Halloween event, including skins and weapons. A new animal companion should not be missing either. To do this, players must first collect enough of the “Hexoplasma” currency to feed “Maurice”, a multi-eyed dinosaur with strong teeth.
