Borderlands 3 Director's Cut Countdown: Release Date, Contents, Price, Trailer and Everything We Know

Borderlands 3's second season pass is in full swing, with the Designer's Cut launching in November.

Adding new classes, cosmetics, and even a whole new roguelike-inspired mode, fans have no doubt started to wonder what'll be coming in the similarly titled "Director's Cut".

Currently the final piece of DLC that we know about for the game, details are scarce – but we'll be adding to this page as we hear more. And with a Borderlands movie in development, maybe we'll get even more DLC later.

Borderlands 3 Directors Cut Release Date

The Director's Cut DLC has been delayed, and will now arrive on April 8.

It had previously been slated for March 18, but with the snowstorm that ravaged Texas last month, Gearbox has pushed the DLC back.

“Our work on Director’s Cut was unavoidably disrupted and we’ve ultimately decided to shift the release date to ensure we deliver the best possible experience,” a statement reads.

“We appreciate your understanding, and we’re excited for you to play Director’s Cut when it releases next month.”

Borderlands 3 Directors Cut Contents

In an official press release from 2K, they have noted the following content will come to the game with the Director's Cut: 

Director’s Cut includes a series of murder mystery missions, featuring brand new locations and a novel crime scene analysis mechanic. Ava is convinced she has a lead on some potentially supernatural slayings and has decided to document her findings in serialized podcast form. Consider yourself her gun-toting co-host as you investigate strange happenings on Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6, and Nekrotafeyo in search of answers (and loot), with help from some familiar faces. Eagle-eyed Vault Hunters may even uncover teasers, hints, and secrets that tie back to the main story.

In addition, Director’s Cut will give you access to three Vault Cards, which are your ticket to upcoming bundles of themed loot. When you play with a Vault Card active, you can work to level-up the card by completing daily and weekly challenges. There's a selection of over 100 unique challenges to pull from, so you never know exactly what each day and week may bring. Gain enough progress and you’ll unlock a massive cache of themed cosmetics, plus some supremely powerful gear that scales to your level.

And finally, the Director’s Cut add-on delivers a treasure trove of never-before-seen behind-the-scenes content. You’ll get a peek into the development of Borderlands 3, from bloopers to cut content, and have access to a gallery showcasing concept art, storyboards, lost maps, and tons of footage that charts the game’s development.

Players can also look forward to the Diamond Armory, with Diamond Keys unlocking some brand new, high-level weapons. Players will need to complete challenges to earn keys, and then use those keys to grab additional content. Find out more here.
