Borderlands 3’s new Guns, Love, and Tentacles paid story DLC arrives this Thursday, 26th March, and Gearbox has now confirmed it’ll be accompanied by another level cap increase for all players. And for those eager to peer even further into the future, there are more details of the game’s upcoming new seasonal event and Mayhem Mode 2.0.
As of Thursday, Borderlands 3’s level cap will rise from 53 to 57, providing all players will four additional skill points and the option to equip two capstone abilities at one time. There’s also a new Twitch extension arriving as part of the free update (which grants new interaction opportunities to streamers), but the next batch of big, exciting stuff isn’t due until April.
Come next month, Borderlands 3 will usher in its free six-week-long Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event, requiring players to assist their pal Maurice by picking off Joey Ultraviolet’s neon-draped henchmen all across the solar system. Defeat enough and players are granted access to the swanky new Mansion map to confront Joey and his goons directly.
