'Borderlands 3' (ALL) True Trials Mini-Event Begins Tomorrow, Revenge of the Cartels Returns Next Month

Borderlands 3 is a story-driven, non-stop galactic thrill-ride, filled with colorful characters, epic enemies and boss fights, and literally billions of guns.

The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure!

Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization.

Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, collect bazillions of guns and loads of loot, and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy – the Calypso Twins.

Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.

Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities, playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together they are unstoppable.

With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.

Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across war-torn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!

Calling all veteran Vault Hunters! Tomorrow, May 13, a brand new series of limited-time mini-events kicks off in Borderlands 3. The True Trials mini-events create all-new challenges for battle-tested players by buffing the final bosses in Proving Grounds maps, drastically increasing their damage and health. Those who manage to best a True Trial will receive incredible rewards.

Every Thursday for the next six weeks, one Proving Grounds trial will be temporarily turned into a True Trial. Those who succeed in taking down its buffed-up boss will receive one of two Legendary items handpicked by the Borderlands 3 development team. The rewards will change from week to week but will always include one weapon selected from the base game's loot pool and another from one of Borderlands 3's six add-ons. To equip loot that originated in an add-on, you’ll need to own the corresponding add-on. In addition, the chest at the end of each week's True Trial will be full of Legendary items, regardless of how quickly you completed it or how many objectives you scored.

The first trial – True Trial of Survival – kicks off tomorrow at 9:00 AM PT in Devil’s Razor (Pandora), with The Lob and Lucky 7 up for grabs as rewards. Additional details about subsequent True Trials will be added each week to the game's official website.

All of this leads up to the next big seasonal event in The Revengence of Revenge of the Cartels, where you’ll get another chance to thwart Joey Ultraviolet and his gangs of loyal goons at the lavish Villa Ultraviolet hideout. It’s one of many exciting updates coming on June 24, so be sure to check back for more information as we get closer to the big day.

Developed from the ground up with AMD, Borderlands 3 will take full advantage of the most powerful PC hardware available, and is optimized for top performance and incredible gaming experiences on AMD Radeon graphics cards and Ryzen CPUs.

Borderlands 3 is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and PC (Steam and the Epic Games Store).
