Latest Borderlands® 3 Mini-Event Lets Players Load Up on Legendary Gear While Completing the Campaign 

Starting today, the new Golden Path Mini-Event guarantees Legendary rewards for select story missions, allowing players to level up new characters quickly 

Your rewards for saving the universe are about to get Legendary – literally. From November 19 through December 3, get Legendary item rewards for completing select campaign missions during the free Golden Path Mini-Event for Borderlands® 3. Get your mitts on the Lyuda Legendary Vladof Sniper Rifle, Handsome Jackhammer Legendary Hyperion SMG, Nemesis Legendary Dahl Pistol, Hellwalker Legendary Jakobs Shotgun, and more! 

From November 19 at 5:00 PM GMT to December 3 at 5:00PM GMT, select missions in the main Borderlands 3 story campaign are guaranteed to grant Legendary rewards. Note that this lucrative loot buff does not apply to optional side missions or any missions in campaign add-ons. This is the “golden path” we're talking about, after all. 

If you’re a veteran player, now is the perfect time to power-level a new character and try the additional Skill Trees included in the new Designer's Cut* add-on, available separately or as part of Season Pass 2.* With any luck, you'll snag the loot you've always wanted and reach the endgame ready to rock with a fully decked-out Vault Hunter. If you’re completing the campaign for the very first time, this Legendary loot will give you a killer edge as you race to defeat the Calypso Twins. 

If you want the complete Borderlands 3 experience, be sure to pick up Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition, which is now available on PC, Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Ultimate Edition grants you access to the award-winning base game, multiple bonus cosmetic packs (including the recently revealed Final Form Cosmetics), and both the original Season Pass* and Season Pass 2*. 

And just a reminder: Borderlands 3’s next-gen upgrade is now available for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. All players who own or purchase both a copy of the game and a next-gen console will be able to download the upgrade within the same console family for free. Players who own a physical disc of Borderlands 3 will need the Xbox Series X or standard PlayStation 5 console model that includes a disc drive to take advantage of this feature. 

Borderlands 3 has been fully optimized to take advantage of the next-gen consoles’ processing power, bringing a new level of graphical fidelity to the Borderlands universe. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 display Borderlands 3 at up to 60 frames per second in 4K resolution during single-player and online co-op. It can also reach up to 120 frames per second if you select the “Performance Mode” setting while using a display that supports those frame rates. In addition, all next-gen consoles support three- and four-player split-screen for local multiplayer, and vertical split-screen for two-player local co-op is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. 

Borderlands 3 is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. For assets and additional information, please visit newsroom.2k.com.
