Arms Race Mode Confirmed for Borderlands 3’s Second Season Pass

Gearbox Software's looter-shooter gets a new roguelike mode on November 10. Here's the official gameplay trailer and details.

It wasn’t too long ago that Gearbox Software revealed the second season pass for Borderlands 3, and we’re starting to see what that second season pass will consist of.

During the initial announcement for the second season pass, an Arms Race Mode was confirmed but details remained vague. As part of the latest episode of The Borderlands Show, though, we finally got a look at just what that Arms Race Mode will entail.

You can see the official trailer below. 

Coming in as the first half of the “Directors Cut” add-on for Borderlands 3 (the second half is yet to be revealed), this expansion works as a “roguelike experience,” seeing players dropped into an isolated map on Pandora, stripped of their existing weapons and skills.

Working inside an area known as the Stormblind Complex, players will be thrust into a battle royale of sorts, with Stormblind Complex including a weather system called the “Murdercane,” which restricts player access to certain parts of the map.

The aim, as you may have guessed, is quite simple: grab as much gear as you can. But to obtain the best items possible in Arms Race, players will need to take down high-level enemies. With roguelike elements, you can expect this gear won’t be easily obtainable and that you’ll die quite often trying to get it.

We’ll have to wait until November 10 for further information on Arms Race Mode, but stay tuned to GameSkinny as we learn more about this upcoming expansion.
