New Borderlands 3 Update Brings Crossplay and Level Cap

Still No PlayStation Crossplay

A pretty substantial update hit Borderlands 3 yesterday. The long awaited crossplay feature is now available, though not to PlayStation users, as Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford previously said. Now, PC (both on Epic Games Store and Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Mac, and Stadia players can play together in any combination of platforms. A player’s crossplay user name just has to be unique and not used by any other player. Crossplay is not the only feature being added in this update. Another highly requested feature by players regarding seasonal events has been implemented.

The 80’s-themed Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event is returning in The Revengence of Revenge of the Cartels. There are new cosmetics to earn in addition to any you may have missed the first time around. Not only is this seasonal event back, but all three seasonal events are now permanent missions. Bloody Harvest, Broken Hearts Day, and Revenge of the Cartels can be accessed at any time going forward. You just need to toggle them on from the main menu. However, mini-events like bonus Eridium days are not included in this toggle feature.

If that was not enough to get players back into the Borderlands, the level cap has once again been raised by seven levels. After getting your Action Skill at level 2, maxed out characters can used up to 70 skill points across all three skill trees (four skill trees with the Designer’s Cut DLC). Not long ago, PlayStation said that they would like to participate more with crossplay, so hopefully it will be extended to PlayStation users in the near future. Borderlands 3 is available for PC, Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Will you be getting back into Borderlands 3 to try out some of these things? Let us know in the comments below.
