This past week, Borderlands 3 revealed more details about their first in-game event as they will celebrate Halloween with the Bloody Harvest. Along with the help of Kinda Funny, the devs released info about what’s on the way from storylines to skins. Check out some of the info below as well as the video showing off all the goodies.
Everyone can take part in Bloody Harvest when it goes live in October, as it’s the first of many free updates and events you can expect from Borderlands 3. For the duration of the event, any Vault Hunters who have departed Pandora for the first time and started exploring the far reaches of space aboard Sanctuary III will start to encounter Haunted enemies around the galaxy. These Haunted enemies are your key to accessing a new event-specific map, but watch out—the Ghosts that rise from the bodies of slain Haunted enemies will do their best to scare you to death. Coming into contact with one of these aggressive apparitions will induce the new Terror debuff, which partially shrouds your vision in a mysterious mist and weakens your gun handling, accuracy, and spread. As you explore the ghost-infested galaxy, you’ll earn Hecktoplasm that can be turned in to Maurice, your scaly new pal who’s taken residence aboard Sanctuary III.
Once you’ve earned entry into the Bloody Harvest map, beware: dreadful dangers abound at every turn. Look to the shadowy sky and you’ll see winged Rakk-O’-Lanterns soaring through the air, eager to swoop down and breathe fire in your face. Tread lightly through a ghastly graveyard crawling with Maliwan goons who’ve reserved a burial plot just for you. Resist the urge to retch as you fight through a Ratch-infested pit with rivers of blood running through it.
