    Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut DLC Announced, Creative Director Reflects On Post-Launch Development

    Gearbox Creative Director Graeme Timmins published a post on the state PlayStation Blog today reminiscing concerning the intensive procedure for iterating on Borderlands 3’s content since its 2019 launch. Timmins also detailed future updates which include the variety-packed Director’s Cut DLC that’ll drop towards the finish of the week. 


    Early, Timmins states that the development team was guided by three significant goals since shipping Borderlands 3: “First, to keep to polish and enhance the game by addressing reported performance issues. Second, to make an effort to maintain a balanced experience in order that build diversity could flourish at the end-game. And lastly, to deliver a number of new content, whether free or within a paid campaign DLC, at a frequent cadence.” Timmons would continue to state that despite achieving these goals also, they serve as&nbsp still; the definitive metric for how Gearbox continues to boost the longevity and legacy of Borderlands 3.

    These contemplative thoughts are designed to commemorate the release of the Director’s Cut DLC that will add a new raid boss, more murder mysteries, weekly and daily challenges through Vault Cards, a cache of exclusive, behind-the-scenes content, and much more Legendary items for players to get. On April 8 the Director’s Cut DLC is defined to release. 

    Finally, Timmons took enough time out to thank the Borderlands 3 playerbase along with reassure them that the devs do pay attention to community feedback (which includes reading subreddits!):

     “Whether it’s a narrative premise or perhaps a new gameplay hook, we’ve been in a position to make our ideas work within the context of the universe. That freedom has been crucial not merely to maintaining our very own passion for the overall game internally also for keeping the knowledge fresh and engaging for the city. If you’re section of that community now or have already been at any point during the past: many thanks. We have been so grateful you’ve seriously this journey around and given our ideas the opportunity.”
