Details of the first limited-time event for Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 3 have been revealed. The Bloody Harvest will be the shooter’s take on Halloween, with the requisite spooky items, enemies, and areas.
Shown during The Borderlands Show, Gearbox’s monthly web show for information about Borderlands 3, Creative Director Paul Sage gave players the first look at Bloody Harvest. It will be released next month, and is just the first of many free, limited-time events coming to the shooter.
The Bloody Harvest will begin as players explore the outer sections of the universe, with Haunted enemies appearing in a few locations. They possess the new Terror debuff that can affect players’ vision, gun handling, accuracy, and spread.
Defeating these foes will earn you Hecktoplasm, a limited-time currency that can be turned in to Maurice, a new NPC aboard the Sanctuary III. Eventually, you will gain access to the map for the Bloody Harvest.
It will not be a Borderlands 3 event without boss fights, and a new battle with Captain Haunt as the Baron of the Bloody Harvest will be waiting. Returning in a new form, the former Captain Traunt of Maliwan will be back to haunt your adventures this time around.
The event will bring several limited-time rewards as well, with an ECHO Device Skin, Weapon Trinkets, Vault Hunter Skins, and a Global Weapon skin. New equipment with Terror modifiers will also be made available.
