What’s Next for Borderlands 3?

Borderlands 3 was one of the first older-gen games to receive an update to support the improved capabilities of next-gen consoles.

Gearbox made sure that the update would arrive on the day and date of the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X. The said update is free for anyone who already owned Borderlands 3. The update allowed players to enjoy Borderlands 3 in 60 frames per second in 4K resolution. This improved performance is available in both single-player and online co-op.

The Director's Cut DLC is the second content announced for the game's second Season Pass. The first part, the Designer's Cut, was released earlier in November 2020.
