The latest update for Borderlands 3 has arrived, bringing with it the newest in-game event.
The new event is called Gear Rush. During the event, rare-level chests are more likely to appear in the battle royale-style Arms Race mode. Additionally, DAHL chests found in Stormblind Complex will be more likely to contain special gear exclusive to Arms Race.
There is a risk involved with all of this, however, as the update also makes the murder hurricane–the Murdercane, as it’s called–close faster than before.
Borderlands developer Gearbox Software was recently acquired by the Swedish company Embracer Group in a sale valued at up to $1.3 billion. Despite the sale, Gearbox will continue to work with 2K Games on the Borderlands series, though no new titles in the franchise have been announced.
Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford recently revealed that the studio is also incubating several new game ideas that he believes could shake up the video game industry like Borderlands did.
