Later in the month Borderlands 3 will showcase its newest game mode, Arms Race.

Developers Gearbox Software says it will greatly change the game.


Borderlands 3 has consistently released new and exciting content over the past year or so.

There have been four DLCs so far, with the first launching just a few months after the release of the game.

The most recent being Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck, coming to the game just last month.

Gearbox Comments On New Mode

Recently in an interview with GameSpot, Gearbox stated Arms Race will be the next mode to arrive in the newest DLC.

This mode will mean that every gun will have different uses and meanings.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford believes that Arms Race will apparently create the feel of a new game altogether.


"I cannot wait until [we can] share more about this, until people can experience it," said Pitchford. "Because it's fricking cool. It's a totally new game. The way it feels to me, when I play it, it's like, 'Holy crap. This changes everything.' And I think it's going to be a lot of fun."

Most DLCs have been based around the story of Borderlands 3 but this seems to be the first to focus on gameplay.

Although, this mode is only one part to a DLC leaving plenty of room for more story-based content.

Randy Pitchford thinks that players of Call of Duty and battle royales may even have an interest, could we see a sort of battle royale mode?


Gearbox is known for putting a huge amount of effort and time into the DLCs they produce and as a player of Borderlands 3, I can't wait for what's to come.

Maybe the game needs a breath of fresh air and with that could come a whole host of new players.

We really hope that this mode lives up to expectations and the hype created by the developers.

As of now, we have no release date for the new DLC or Arms Mode but keep an eye out as we'll keep you updated.
