New seasonal event and themed loot coming to Borderlands 3 soon.
Broken Hearts Day is fast approaching in the Borderlands, and Maurice, Sanctuary III’s resident sentient Saurian, is hoping you’ll assist with his ongoing study of the human condition as he turns his attention to our species’ courting rituals. You’ll be well rewarded for completing Maurice’s challenges during this new seasonal event revealed on episode five of The Borderlands Show, and don’t worry, you’re not being asked to do anything inappropriate. Simply shoot down the floating hearts that are swirling around enemies across the galaxy as you go about your regular Vault Hunter business.
The hearts take several forms and break in different ways: some will fall to the ground with a fiery explosion, while others might drop loot or briefly turn enemies into allies, for example. Maurice will keep track of how many hearts you’ve broken and mail you the following event rewards as you reach each of these totals:
10 – “ECHOcardiogram” ECHO Skin
25 – “Cosmic Romance” Weapon Trinket
50 – “Terminal Polyaimorous” Legendary Maliwan SMG
75 – “Heartbreaker” Vault Hunter Skin
100 – “Wedding Invitation” Legendary Jakobs Sniper Rifle
Hearts will start to materialize across the Borderlands once the February patch deploys. You’ll then have one week to assist Maurice before this seasonal event ends. If you don’t want to take part, you can opt out of the Broken Hearts Day event from the main menu after pressing Play, but when you join an online game, the host player’s settings will determine whether or not the event is active.
For information on some of the other exciting stuff we have in the works for Borderlands 3, check out the Community Love Letter we wrote for you. We mostly skipped the soppy stuff and instead jumped straight into planning our future together with a new update roadmap, which includes plans for things like Mayhem 2.0, skippable cutscenes, level cap increases, and upgrades to the Guardian Rank system. <3
