Borderlands 3 endgame and post-launch content has today been detailed by 2K and Gearbox.
Borderlands 3 endgame content
Those who finish the Borderlands 3 have the following to look forward to:
- Guardian Rank: Similar to previous entries’ Badass Rank system, the Guardian Rank system will award a Guardian Token for each time a player fills a special Guardian Rank XP bar. Tokens can be spent across three distinct trees.
- True Vault Hunter mode: Described as “Borderlands 3‘s take on New Game+,” this mode will offer tougher enemies and better loot. “Whether you select Normal or True Vault Hunter when starting up a new campaign, your character’s mission progress is unique to each playthrough,” 2K detailed. “However, your Vault Hunters’ stats and equipment are shared across both modes.”
- Mayhem mode: “After completing the campaign, you’ll activate a mysterious terminal aboard Sanctuary III that offers three Mayhem Mode difficulty levels,” 2K advised. “Enabling one of these Mayhem Modes ups the ante on risks and rewards across all worlds: enemies get increased health, shields, and armour, while you get bonus cash, Eridium, experience gains, and chances for better loot (including ‘Anointed’ gear).”

Borderlands 3 post-launch schedule
Borderlands 3 post-launch content kicks off with the Bloody Harvest event, a free update that promises “spooky activities” and “unique event rewards.” While a date wasn’t locked in, it’s likely we’ll see it timed for Halloween in October.
That’ll be followed by another free content update called Maliwan Takedown. It includes a new map, new enemies, a new boss and more powerful rewards.
Finally, Gearbox will wind up 2019 with the game’s first paid DLC, offering a new campaign add on. The paid content will also be part of the game’s season pass.
Borderlands 3 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13.
