Borderlands 3 Season Pass Details

With Borderlands 3, Gearbox Software and 2K Games take the "classic" approach and introduce the Borderlands 3 season pass. These days every game needs to be treated as a service with ongoing live support. Borderlands 3 isn't an always-online game but still delivers a lot of content over the course of a year just like other games. In this article, we will go over the details of the Borderlands 3 season pass. What can you expect from it and is it worth your well earned bucks.

Borderlands 3 Season Pass Price

Currently, the season pass doesn’t have a price listed. When you compare the current versions of the game and calculate the price difference you can get an indication of what the price will be. The Borderlands 3 Deluxe Edition which doesn’t include the season pass costs $79.99 USD . The Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition costs $99.99 USD, however, this one will get a $20 price increase at the game’s release.  Yes, this is a pre-order incentive. So there is a $40 USD price difference between the two packages at launch. This is in line with other season passes from other current games. The Story Campaigns for Borderlands 2 were sold separately for $9.99 each. So 4 pieces of content for $40 would make sense. Buying a season pass always gave you an advantage over buying all the pieces of content separately, therefore I expect that each individual story DLC will be priced a bit higher. I predict somewhere around $12 instead of $9.99.

Is the Borderlands 3 Season Pass worth it?

It is always hard to judge if things are worth it because we all add different values to digital content. Personally, I don’t add much value to cosmetic items. So that is not something that would pull me in. However, additional story campaigns carry more weight for me. Looking back at previous Gearbox games, they always have done an excellent job on delivering story DLC. I really enjoyed playing the additional story campaigns in Borderlands 2 and Battleborn. They all delivered different experiences, you may favor some over the other. At the moment of writing the content isn’t out yet and you can really judge by playing the content itself. That said I think GBX has a good track record and would trust them to deliver an enjoyable experience.

Purchase Borderlands 3 Season Pass

Currently, the Borderlands 3 season pass is not up for sale yet. The only digital store that has it listed is the Microsoft Store, however, you cannot purchase it just yet. Until that time you can pick up the Super Deluxe version of Borderlands 3 as it has the Season Pass included. For more the latest details you can check out the official Borderlands website.

DLC Release Schedule

With the Season Pass, you will be getting  4 story DLCs and some Cosmetic items. You will get access to the Butt Stallion Pack at the release of the game. The other content will all be delivered before September 2020. This means that over the course of a year, since Borderlands 3 releases on September 2019, you will be getting 4 content packs. This basically could mean that each quarter you will be getting new content to play. Looking back at previous Gearbox Games games this might not be completely guaranteed. Because we have seen that the first few addon packs followed each other a bit sooner after each other and the final one usually takes some more time. That said, everyone enjoyed Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.
