Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest release date and start time is coming soon on the PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest is a free Halloween event for the hit Gearbox shooter.
Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest has a release date of October 24 – a week before Halloween kicks off.
The Borderlands 3 seasonal event will run until December 5 and offers new rewards, loot, challenges and Captain Haunt – a new boss for Bloody Harvest.
If you want to take part in Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest then you will have to have progressed to a certain point in the story campaign.
As revealed in a post by Gearbox, you will have to have unlocked Sanctuary III if you want to take part in Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest.
A start time for Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest has not been revealed yet by Gearbox.
Here’s more of what you can expect from the Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest event in Gearbox’s own words…
BORDERLANDS 3 BLOODY HARVEST
When Bloody Harvest begins, Maurice will offer you a repeatable mission that must be completed in order to reach Heck, the spooky setting for Borderlands 3’s Bloody Harvest.
Maurice kindly asks that you collect a certain amount of Hecktoplasm, an item that drops from slain Haunted enemies.
You’ll encounter Haunted enemies all over the galaxy during Bloody Harvest; you’ll know them by their ghostly green glow.
Once you’ve collected enough Hecktoplasm, Maurice will open a portal to Heck aboard Sanctuary III that will transport you to the creepy domain of Captain Haunt and his undead minions.
Once you’ve managed to stop shaking in your boots at the sheer spookiness of Heck, you’ll have to fight your way through an undead army of Maliwan soldiers who are rising from their graves with ambitions of revenge.
You’ll also encounter freaky fauna including flying, fire-breathing Rakk-o’-Lanterns and wretched Ratch that’ve gorged themselves on blood.
Deep within the depths of Heck lies Captain Haunt, the bony final boss of Bloody Harvest.
NEW GEAR AND COSMETICS
Your enemies in Heck have a chance to drop gear that will only be available during Bloody Harvest, including Fearmonger, a new Legendary shotgun that packs a supernatural punch.
You might also find Anointed weapons that play off the new Terror mechanic introduced in Bloody Harvest.
Haunted enemies can inflict the Terror debuff, which will affect your aim and partially cloud your vision—but with these new Anointed effects, you can turn Terror into a beneficial boost of power.
There’s also a set of seasonal cosmetic items which won’t drop in Heck, but are still exclusive to the Bloody Harvest event.
During the event, you have the chance to earn a skin for each of the four Vault Hunters (which also apply to Moze’s mech Iron Bear and Fl4K’s pets), a seasonal ECHO Device Skin, a shrunken head Weapon Trinket, and finally a ghostly Global Weapon Skin, all of which you can check out in the trailer up top.
To unlock these items, you’ll need to complete a new set of Challenges that are exclusive to Bloody Harvest.
Progress towards completing these Challenges is tracked automatically, and each cosmetic item is unlocked via completing a certain number of these Challenges.
