Borderlands 3 is free-to-play this weekend on PS4 and XB1 + New Content Update Available Now

The new content is available for free!

When it released last September, Borderland 3 received critical praise, and it also became the fastest-selling game in the series to date. In case you have yet to try the game out, now is the perfect time to do so as Borderland 3 is currently free-to-play this weekend on the PS4 and Xbox One.

For Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, the free weekend is on now until November 25 at 3:59pm PHT. As for PlayStation Plus users, the game is also free-to-play now, with the free weekend running until November 26 at 1:00am PHT.

Aside from being free-to-play now, Borderlands 3 is also on sale on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store. Buyers can get the game with a 33% discount now until December 1, 2019.

Alongside the free weekend, the game’s November patch was released, giving players tons of new content for free. The biggest addition of the update is the raid-like Takedown at Maliwan’s Blacksite which is a major challenge aimed at players who have finished the main story campaign. This update has players face off against incredibly strong mechs, so teaming-up with others is key.

Another new addition is Mayhem 4, the new highest level in Mayhem Mode. In addition, here are the rest of the new content in the patch:

  • Bank Expansion: All characters now begin the game with 20 bank slots instead of 10. By acquiring additional Storage Deck Upgrades from Marcus’s shop on Sanctuary III, players can expand the storage bank to 300 total slots;
  • Dedicated Loot Pools for Bosses: All bosses have been updated with new loot pools that give them dedicated Legendary items to drop. Players can now discover which bosses drop their favorite gear and more easily farm for those specific items;
  • Additional Vending Machines: New vending machines have been placed across multiple maps;
  • Target Dummy: A target dummy now appears in Sanctuary III’s firing range, allowing players to safely test their weapons;
  • Thank You Weapons: Two free “thank you” weapons – one for lower-level players and one for Level 50 players – are available through the in-game mail system.
