Borderlands 3 is more than a year old and has received several paid DLC expansions since it released. However, it also has been bombarded with free updates and post-launch support. Another free update has been released today on all platforms, and just like you would expect, a lot of changes have been made.

The new add-on called the Designer’s Cut has been added to the game. It includes a fourth Skill Tree, a new Arms Race mode, and new Multiverse Final Form Cosmetics. The cosmetics will only be available for Season Pass owners.
