We’ll have more info to share on the subsequent Vault Cards later this year, but we’re planning to launch all three by the end of 2021.</p></div><div readability=”59″><p>“When multiple Vault Cards are available, you can choose which one is active while you play. Once activated, you’ll see an additional progression bar on your HUD sitting just below your Vault Hunter’s regular XP bar.</p><p>“Filling up your Vault Card progression bar works just like leveling up: it’s all driven by how much XP you’re gaining. By exploring the galaxy, wiping out baddies, and completing quests, you’ll fill up your Vault Card progression bar in addition to your regular XP bar.”</p><p><strong>BORDERLANDS 3 DLC RELEASE DATE NEW AND LAUNCH TIME</strong></p><p>Gearbox Software has confirmed that the Director’s Cut Borderlands 3 DLC has a release date set for Thursday, April 8.</p><p>We don’t have a time to expect to be released but previous launches have happened around the evening time in the UK.</p><p>So we would expect the new Borderlands 3 DLC to be available to play by 8pm BST, on April 8.</p><p>A full schedule for when the new content will be available to download could be shared with PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers within the next 24-hours.</p></div><div readability=”52″><p><strong>BORDERLANDS 3 DIRECTOR’S CUT CONTENT</strong></p><p>A rundown of the big expansion news can be found below, including details on the new Raid Boss and new behind-scenes features:</p><p>TAKE ON A NEW RAID BOSS</p><p>Test your mettle against the most fearsome of all Varkids. Her name has long been whispered in blood-soaked legend; now Hemovorous the Invincible has awoken. This colossal raid boss has made her lair on Pandora, and only the fiercest big game hunters have a chance of kicking her chitinous butt in the pursuit of top-tier loot. Better bring some friends to this fight and be ready to get caked in Varkid guts—it’s going to get messy!</p><p>SOLVE AN INTERPLANETARY MURDER MYSTERY</p><p>Ava is convinced she has a lead on some potentially supernatural slayings and has decided to document her findings in serialized podcast form. Consider yourself her gun-toting co-host as you investigate strange happenings on Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6, and Nekrotafeyo in search of answers (and loot) with the help of some familiar faces.</p></div><div readability=”53″><p>GO BEHIND-THE-SCENES</p><p>Peruse Borderlands 3’s beginnings, bloopers, and cut content with a compilation of behind-the-scenes selections. You can also explore a gallery full of concept art, storyboards, lost maps, and footage of Borderlands 3 from throughout its development.</p><p>GEAR UP WITH VAULT CARDS</p><p>Included in the Director’s Cut are three Vault Cards, which are your ticket to upcoming bundles of themed loot! These permanent progression tracks can be activated and leveled up to unlock a bevy of cosmetics plus some supremely powerful gear. The first of the three Vault Cards will launch as part of Director’s Cut, featuring items that honor some of Borderlands’ most beloved fallen heroes; the remaining two Vault Cards are scheduled to launch by the end of 2021. When multiple Vault Cards are available, you’ll have the option to select which one you want to be active.</p><p>MULTIVERSE DISCIPLES OF THE VAULT COSMETICS</p><p>The Multiverse Disciples of the Vault Cosmetics imagine what our heroes would look like if they became bandits and joined the Children of the Vault! Each eye-catching pack contains a one-of-a-kind Vault Hunter Body with a new Head to match.</p></div><p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p>Wed, 07 Apr 2021 02:27:41 +0000Gary Jones en text/html https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/1419780/Borderlands-3-DLC-release-date-Directors-Cut-DLC-launch-time
