Halloween may be over but Borderlands 3 players can continue to experience the Bloody Harvest. This free event infests the game with ghost infused enemies along with a repeatable quest to take on Captain Haunt and his minions down in Heck. The update also comes with gear, challenges, and cosmetics to unlock, though they won't be available forever. Although the Bloody Harvest event isn't scheduled to end until December, Gearbox has already started to wind down the event.
In today's very short Borderlands 3 update, Gearbox Software has started the slow process of bringing the Bloody Harvest to a close. As soon as players apply the update, they'll start to notice that enemies outside of Heck will have a much lower chance of being spawned as a ghost.
While this news may please those who have spent a lot of time in the event and are ready to move on, it's unknown currently at how this will impact those who got started a little later or have a few more challenges to finish. Ghost enemies are critical to gain access to Heck, so by reducing how often they appear could make it that much harder to collect the necessary amount of hecktoplasm to reopen the portal. Considering that last week's update increased the amount of hecktoplasm a ghost enemy can drop, perhaps it won't be an issue.
The rest of the patch addressed a few community reported concerns related to audio related issues as well as gameplay-related problems such as the Eridian structures not resetting after dying during the Tyreen Calypso boss fight.
Even with the Bloody Harvest event ending soon, players still have a good amount of content to look forward to. The first of many Takedown events is right around the corner as well as the announcement of the game's first story expansion. While details are slim, many are speculating it will take place in Opportunity, Handsome Jack's ideal city. Whether or not the fan favorite villain will make an appearance is anyone's guess.
Borderlands 3 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
