Gearbox have some unfortunate news for Borderlands 3 fans - the launch date for Director's Cut DLC has been pushed from March 18 to April 8, 2021, due to disruptions caused by winter storms.
Texas was apparently hit by some severe weather last month, which ultimately impacted the development of Borderlands 3's upcoming DLC. Gearbox wrote that they and their families are safe and healthy, which is the most important thing, of course, but Director's Cut will be slightly delayed.
"Our work on Director's Cut was unavoidably disrupted and we've ultimately decided to shift the release date to ensure we deliver the best possible experience. We appreciate your understanding and we're excited for you to play Director's Cut when it releases next month", the studio tweeted.
Now, we're not sure about you, but after the train wreck that was 2020, it's not hard to sort out actual priorities from fun and games. Not to mention the year's penultimate lessonpunk 2077, which should really make everyone think twice before demanding a game be launched before it's done.
Borderlands 3 players will have enough content to survive until Director's Cut launches, and Gearbox already rolled out a small hotfix last night with the following changes:
- Loot variant enemies will now have a chance to drop the Legendary Rocket Launcher R.Y.N.A.H
- Added the Firestorm Grenade Mod to Aurelia’s boss pool
There have also been a few changes on the Siren's Remnant skill, which has been more destructive that the dev ever intended. The culprit turned out to be unlisted melee, slide and slam damage bonuses, which have been addressed.
