Borderlands 3 Roadmap for 2019 and Endgame Content Detailed

Share this:

As part of today’s PAX West Borderlands 3 show, Gearbox Software not only revealed the Borderlands 3 2019 roadmap, but also some of the endgame activities players will be able to do once they’re finished in the main campaign!

Check out the Borderlands 3 roadmap for 2019 below, which includes campaign DLC!

Also outlined in the press release sent out are endgame content like True Vault Hunter Mode, Guardian Rank, and the introduction of the all-new Mayhem Mode!


If you’re familiar with previous Borderlands’ Badass Rank system, the basic idea is the same: you can unlock incremental stat improvements that apply to all your Vault Hunters. As you gain experience, you fill a special Guardian Rank XP bar. Every bar you fill unlocks a Guardian Token, which you can spend to unlock bonus stats across three distinct trees. The further you progress, the better the rewards available to you.


This is Borderlands 3’s take on New Game+. The enemies will be tougher and the loot will be better compared to your Normal mode conquests. Whether you select Normal or True Vault Hunter when starting up a new campaign, your character’s mission progress is unique to each playthrough. However, your Vault Hunters’ stats and equipment are shared across both modes.


After completing the campaign, you’ll activate a mysterious terminal aboard Sanctuary III that offers three Mayhem Mode difficulty levels. Enabling one of these Mayhem Modes ups the ante on risks and rewards across all worlds: enemies get increased health, shields, and armor, while you get bonus cash, Eridium, experience gains, and chances for better loot (including “Anointed” gear).

Mayhem Mode also applies a random selection of modifiers called Mayhem Mods to every planet you visit. For instance, you might get a Mayhem Mod like “You’re a Wizard,” which reduces the damage players do with normal bullets but increases their elemental damage.

Borderlands 3 will loot its way out this September 13 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
