The Borderlands 3 Director's Cut add-on has arrived, featuring the debut of the new boss Hemovorous the Invincible, new locations to explore, a set of three Vault Cards featuring themed gear, and more!

Borderlands 3, like its predecessors, is certainly no stranger to DLC. It's already well into its second Season Pass, and now the next bit of major DLC has made its debut for the game across all platforms: the Director's Cut add-on.

What's New in the Borderlands 3 Director's Cut Add-On?

The first big addition to the Borderlands 3 Director's Cut add-on is Hemovorous the Invincible, a massive Varkid raid boss who gives you the opportunity to score some of the best loot in the game. (Spoilers: she's probably not actually invincible.) That won't be the only new loot you can get, though. Three new Vault Cards featuring some pretty cool cosmetics and powerful weapons are also available for you to work through.

You won't be retreading old ground, either — a fair few new locations are being added to the game as part of this add-on. Part of this journey will include helping Ava with her "Mysteriouslier" podcast, because apparently podcasts still exist in the far-flung future. Naturally, this add-on lives up to the "Director's Cut" name — a whole bunch of behind-the-scenes content will be available to view. This includes concept art, storyboards, clips, and more!

You can buy the Borderlands 3 Director's Cut for $14.99 or your regional equivalent via the game's official website; it's also included as part of Season Pass 2. Do keep in mind that this isn't a standalone release, mind — you'll also need to own a copy of the base game to play it!
