If you’re looking forward to more ways to challenge yourself in Borderlands 3, Gearbox Software has announced some of the late game content players can look forward to in the game. There’s the return of Borderlands 3 Circle of Slaughter, and the Proving Grounds.
Borderlands 3 Circle of Slaughter
The Circle of Slaughter is returning in Borderlands 3! During your trek across the solar system, players will find areans sponsored by weapon manufacturer, Torgue. Signing up to these events means it’s do or die; if you’re downed and no one’s around to revive you, your run is officially over and that’s it! No loot to gain for losers, sadly. There are five rounds of multiple waves each, so teamwork is key.
Borderlands 3 Proving Grounds
Later on in the game, players will be allowed to take part in the Proving Grounds, which are timed gauntlets that have you racing against the clock, tasking you to beat enemies, and even taking on a boss in 30 minutes or less. Beating these gauntlets quickly and being more efficient yields better rewards. There are even bonus objectives in these challenges (like not dying, finding and eliminating a specific enemy, etc.) that when completed, grants even better loot!
Not bad, right? Now you know some of the challenges that await you even before you’ve hit the end of the game.
