The Latest Borderlands 3 Update is Here

Gearbox launched Borderlands 3 in a pretty crap state if I’m honest. I got my review code and quickly followed up with a list of issues right to their team. However, that’s pretty much modern gaming in a nutshell. Release it broken and go from there. What matters these days is how well a developer looks after their game post-launch. So far, it seems Gearbox is making the right moves. Steady updates, fixing issues, fixing balancing issues, and breaking other things. More wins than losses so far, so I’ll take it.

Borderlands 3 Update

The patch deals with a few things to do with levelling glitches, and vanishing loot. Gigamind has been made easier (again), as have a few other bosses. For some reason, they’re amping up FL4K too. Not only is he stupidly powerful, but now he’s downright freaking unstoppable with 100% effect change on RAKK Attack.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
