Gearbox and 2K have shared a Community Love Letter that thanks the fans for their support and reveals an updated roadmap detailing new features and changes coming to Borderlands 3. A new seasonal event called ‘Broken Hearts Day’ will feature breakable floating hearts, and when shot at will provide a range of unique effects, such as converting enemies into an exploding pile of loot, and a buff that improves your party’s damage output.
The event will also give you the opportunity to earn rewards, with five in total, including special skins and Legendary weapons unique to Broken Hearts Day. You can choose to play the event in the main menu by turning it on or off in the main menu, meaning you don’t always have to play it. It’ll be going live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and PC when the February patch goes live later this month, and you’ll have one week before the event ends.
Gearbox has also announced the first level cap increase for Borderlands 3, allowing players to level up from 50 to 53. There will be more increases to the level cap later, and is free to all BL3 players. The Community Love Letter also announced loads of new details coming to Borderlands 3, including:
-True Vault Hunter Mode
-Guardian Rank Toggling
-Fight for Your Life Improvements
-Twitch ECHOcast Extension Additions
