It’s Friday afternoon, and you’re rushing home to play Battleborn, because this weekend there’s is a special event: an increased chance to get that legendary gear you’ve had your eye on for weeks.
I’m a fan of weekend/timed events in video games. I play alot of Guild Wars 2, and anyone familiar with that game knows about the Living World events that occur every 2 weeks or so. I also enjoyed the weekend events in BL2, like the weekend when Vermivorous had an increased chance to spawn. My friends and I actually got 2 to spawn at once. That was fun… Thank god we had a Gunzerker, otherwise we would’ve run out of ammo pretty quick.
Anyway, with the SHiFT system already in place, Gearbox can upload Battleborn content to players quick and easy. I don’t think it’s a matter of will we see weekend events, it’s what kinds of weekend events will we see.
